Three melatonin receptor subtypes, MTNR1A (alias MT1, Mel1a), MTNR1B (alias MT2, Mel1b), and MTNR1C (alias Mel1c), which belong to the superfamily of G protein-coupled receptors [4], have been cloned in birds [5,6].

Stimulation with green LED light during incubation also increases the chick embryo liver weight accompanied by a high level of proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA) expression and an enhanced antioxidant activity of the liver, which is mediated by melatonin levels and melatonin receptor 1c (Mel1c) expression (Wang et al., 2014).
