Melanocortin Receptors (Melanocortin Receptor) Summary

Description: A family of G-protein-coupled receptors that have specificity for MELANOCYTE-STIMULATING HORMONES and ADRENOCORTICOTROPIC HORMONE. There are several subtypes of melanocortin receptors, each having a distinct ligand specificity profile and tissue localization.

Also Known As: Melanocortin Receptor; Receptors, Melanocortin; Receptor, Melanocortin
