QuickView for MC2R (gene)

Gene Symbol:
MC2R Homo sapiens Homo sapiens
Full name:
melanocortin 2 receptor
ACTHR, adrenocorticotropic hormone receptor, ACTH receptor, MC2 receptor, adrenocorticotropin receptor, corticotropin receptor, melanocortin 2 receptor (adrenocorticotropic hormone)
Genomic Location:
Chr 18: 13872043-13905535
MC2R encodes one member of the five-member G-protein associated melanocortin receptor family. Melanocortins (melanocyte-stimulating hormones and adrenocorticotropic hormone) are peptides derived from pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC). MC2R is selectively activated by adrenocorticotropic hormone, whereas the other four melanocortin receptors recognize a v...
