Endogenous melanocortin antagonist in fish: Structure, brain mapping and regulation by fasting of the goldfish agouti-related protein geneDownload
Agouti-related protein (AGRP) is a naturally occurring antagonist of melanocortin. In mammals, central AGRP expression is restricted to the arcuate nucleus in which it plays a key role in the control of energy balance by antagonizing melanocortin effects at melanocortin 4 receptors. In goldfish,...
