Target Details This gene encodes an antagonist of the melanocortin-3 and melanocortin-4 receptor. It appears to regulate hypothalamic control of feeding behavior via melanocortin receptor and/or intracellular calcium regulation, and thus plays a role in weight homeostasis. Mutations in this gene have been associated with late on-set obesity.

Intra-assay Precision (Precision within an assay): CV%<8%


Three samples of known concentration were tested twenty times on one plate to assess.


Inter-assay Precision (Precision between assays): CV%<10%


Three samples of known concentration were tested in twenty assays to assess.



 To assess the linearity of the assay, samples were spiked with high concentrations of human AGRP in various matrices and diluted with the Sample Diluent to produce samples with values within the dynamic range of the assay.

Typical Data

 These standard curves are provided for demonstration only. A standard curve should be generated for each set of samples assayed.

Function Plays a role in weight homeostasis. Involved in the control of feeding behavior through the central melanocortin system. Acts as alpha melanocyte-stimulating hormone antagonist by inhibiting cAMP production mediated by stimulation of melanocortin receptors within the hypothalamus and adrenal gland. Has very low activity with MC5R (By similarity). Is an inverse agonist for MC3R and MC4R being able to suppress their constitutive activity. It promotes MC3R and MC4R endocytosis in an arrestin-dependent manner.
Involvement in disease Obesity (OBESITY)
Subcellular Location Secreted, Golgi apparatus lumen
Tissue Specificity Expressed primarily in the adrenal gland, subthalamic nucleus, and hypothalamus, with a lower level of expression occurring in testis, lung, and kidney.
