MCHR1

(redirected from melanin-concentrating hormone receptor 1)

MCHR1

A gene on chromosome 22q13.2 that encodes a G protein-coupled receptor and integral plasma membrane protein which binds melanin-concentrating hormone. MCHR1 can inhibit cAMP accumulation and stimulate intracellular calcium accumulation, and is probably involved in the neuronal regulation of food consumption.
