Protein Coding Gene : a nonagouti

Primary Identifier  MGI:87853 Organism  Mus musculus
Chromosome  2 NCBI Gene Number  50518
Mgi Type  protein coding gene
description  FUNCTION: Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources

Exhibits type 3 melanocortin receptor binding activity and type 4 melanocortin receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including adult feeding behavior; melanosome transport; and positive regulation of melanin biosynthetic process. Used to study obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Is expressed in hair bulb and skin. Orthologous to human ASIP (agouti signaling protein).
PHENOTYPE: Agouti acts in the hair follicles, primarily affecting the relative amount and distribution of yellow pigment (phaeomelanin) and black pigment (eumelanin) in hairs of the coat. Some alleles show lethal effects or are associated with obesity. [provided by MGI curators]
