Zebrafish Melanocortin 4 Receptor (MC4R) interaction partners

  1. MRAP2b decreases the constitutive activity of the MC4R during fasting periods, driving the animal toward a positive energy balance.

  2. MRAP2 proteins allow for developmental control of MC4R activity, with MRAP2a blocking its function and stimulating growth during larval development, whereas MRAP2b enhances responsiveness to alpha-MSH once the zebrafish begins feeding, thus increasing the capacity for regulated feeding and growth.

An SNP in the FTO (show FTO Proteins) (rs9939609) gene but not in the MC4R (rs17782313) gene was significantly associated with prepregnancy body mass index (BMI) >/=25 kg/m(2) (relative riskFTO = 2.1; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.4-3.1). SNPs were not statistically associated with excessive gestational weight gain (GWG) or postpartum weight retention (PPWR).

  4. genetic association studies in population of children in Chile: Data suggest that a polymorphism in the 3prime untranslated region of MC4R (rs17782313) is associated with eating behavior leading to overweight/obesity in the pediatric population studied (children 8-14 years old).

  3. Mc4r receptor expression in the cuneiform nucleus is involved in modulation of opioidergic signaling.

  4. Together, these results suggest that alpha-MSH alleviates Dex-induced damages to cultured osteoblasts through activating MC4R-SphK1 (show SPHK1 Proteins) signaling.

  5. Our findings support the hypothesis that MC4R signaling in the pedunculopontine tegmental nucleus may involve in the modulation of midbrain dopamine systems.

  6. These results indicate that intact CNS MC4R signaling is necessary for leptin (show LEP Proteins) to exert its chronic antidiabetic, anorexic, and cardiovascular actions.

  7. Mc4r signaling has a protective role in minimizing glucose fluctuations due to circadian rhythms and environmental light cues, a previously undiscovered connection between circadian biology and glucose metabolism mediated through the melanocortin system.

  8. MC4R specifically inhibited the presynaptic N-type channel subtype, and this inhibition may be important for the effects of melanocortin in the central subdivision of the amygdala

  9. Coupling of MC4R to Kir7.1 (show KCNJ13 Proteins) may explain unusual aspects of the control of energy homeostasis by melanocortin signalling, including the gene dosage effect of MC4R and the sustained effects of AgRP (show AGRP Proteins) on food intake.

  10. The MC4R-expressing neurons regulating feeding are SIM1 (show SIM1 Proteins)(+), located in the paraventricular hypothalamus, glutamatergic and not GABAergic, and do not express oxytocin, corticotropin-releasing hormone (show CRH Proteins), vasopressin (show AVP Proteins), or prodynorphin (show PDYN Proteins).

Cow (Bovine) Melanocortin 4 Receptor (MC4R) interaction partners

  1. evaluate the association of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in MC4R with milk production traits in water buffalo. Based on the SNP data, seven haplotypes were constructed. Three SNPs H1 (AGT (show AGT Proteins)), H2 (GAT), and H3 (GAC (show GLS Proteins)) accounted for 93.0% of the total individuals. Statistical analysis indicated that the SNP g.1104C>T was significantly associated with milk yield, protein, and fat percentage.

  2. The MC4R gene may thus be a candidate gene for carcass traits with MC4R single nucleotide polymorphisms being potentially valuable as genetic markers for economic traits in Hanwoo.

  3. The aim was to estimate the frequency of the SNPs in the MC4R gene and to determine if individual genotypes were associated with several economic traits.

  4. The results suggested that -129A>G and 1,069C>G single nucleotide polymorphism of the MC4R gene may be useful as a genetic marker for carcass and meat quality traits in Qinchuan cattle.

  5. results are suggestive that adrenal glucocorticoid production could be regulated through melanocortin 4 receptor

  6. Single nucleotide polymorphisms in 5'-untranslated region of MC4R gene, were detected.

  2. These results suggest that LEPR, MC4R, PIK3C3 and VRTN are useful markers for accurately predicting breeding values in Duroc pigs.

  3. Transcriptional profiling was used to identify genes and pathways that responded to intracerebroventricular injection of MC4R agonist [Nle(4), d-Phe(7)]-alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone (show POMC Proteins) in pigs homozygous for the missense mutation in the MC4R.

Melanocortin 4 Receptor (MC4R) Protein Profile

Protein Summary

The protein encoded by this gene is a membrane-bound receptor and member of the melanocortin receptor family. The encoded protein interacts with adrenocorticotropic and MSH hormones and is mediated by G proteins. This is an intronless gene. Defects in this gene are a cause of autosomal dominant obesity.
