04/01/2010 - "The relatively large effect of these common variants near melanocortin 4 receptor on general and visceral adiposity in childhood, especially in girls, could prove helpful in elucidating the molecular mechanisms underlying the development of obesity in early life."
03/01/2014 - "Human genome-wide association studies have identified genes associated with obesity and DM, including melanocortin 4 receptor (MC4R), which plays an important role in energy balance and appetite regulation. "
03/01/2014 - "Melanocortin 4 receptor (MC4R) is an important regulator of food intake and number of studies report genetic variations influencing the risk of obesity. "
02/01/2014 - "The aim of this study was to assess the association between melanocortin-4 receptor (MC4R) rs17782313 alleles with obesity and eating behavior scores in Chilean children. "
04/01/2012 - "This study investigated the prevalence of the Melanocortin receptor 4 (MC4R) V1031 gene variant and its association with obesity among a cohort of 254 patients (101 males; 118 obese) attending the Kampar Health Clinic. "
10/01/2005 - "This review summarises the current evidence supporting the role of the melanocortin 4 (MC4) receptor subtype in cachexia, and discusses the development and use of small-molecule MC4 antagonists, which have proved to be effective in preventing the loss of lean body mass in animal models of cachexia. "
08/01/2007 - "Antagonism of the melanocortin 4 receptor (MC4R) has been proposed as a therapeutic intervention for the prevention of lean body mass waste, as in cachexia. "
07/01/2007 - "Regarding treatment potential, multiple reports describe the effectiveness of small molecule antagonists of the melanocortin-4 receptor in animal models of cachexia. "
04/01/2005 - "Recent findings strongly indicate that blockade of central melanocortin signaling through the MC4 receptor subtype attenuates cachexia. "
04/01/2005 - "MC4 receptor antagonists: a potential treatment for cachexia."
|3.||Body Weight (Weight, Body)
08/22/2014 - "The melanocortin receptor 4 (MC4R) plays a major role in body weight regulation and its agonist MTII has been widely used to study the role of MC4Rs in energy expenditure promotion and feeding reduction. "
09/01/2008 - "Several studies have reported that carriers of the 103I allele of the melanocortin-4 receptor (MC4R) gene had lower body weight than did persons with the wild-type genotype. "
04/01/2015 - "Activation of the melanocortin-4 receptor (MC4R) with the synthetic agonist RM-493 decreases body weight and increases energy expenditure (EE) in nonhuman primates. "
01/01/2015 - "The central melanocortin system and particularly the melanocortin-4 receptor (MC4R) subtype, plays an important role in the regulation of body weight. "
11/18/2014 - "The melanocortin-4 receptor (MC4R) plays a key role in the regulation of food intake and body weight. "
02/15/2001 - "Stimulation of the hypothalamic melanocortin 4 receptor (MC4-R) produces relative anorexia and increased metabolic rate, even in a relatively starved state. "
04/01/2000 - "However, we have also shown that the behavioral effects of CRF (anorexia and grooming) are not influenced by MC4 receptor blockage. "
04/01/2000 - "Moreover, immobilization stress-induced anorexia may be partially reversed by single and repeated intracerebroventricular administration of selective MC4 receptor antagonists. "
03/12/1999 - "We investigated the effects of selective melanocortin MC4 receptor blockage on immobilization stress-induced anorexia. "
03/12/1999 - "Selective melanocortin MC4 receptor blockage reduces immobilization stress-induced anorexia in rats."
|5.||Brain Injuries (Brain Injury)
02/01/2015 - "In this study, we explore the protective effects of melanocortin 4 receptor agonists in IAH-induced brain injury. "
03/01/1999 - "We hypothesize that the up-regulation of melanocortin-4 receptor messenger RNA expression in the contralateral striatum may be involved in transfer of function to the uninjured hemisphere following unilateral brain injury."
03/01/1999 - "Melanocortin-4 receptor messenger RNA expression is up-regulated in the non-damaged striatum following unilateral hypoxic-ischaemic brain injury."
02/01/2015 - "The effects of the melanocortin 4 receptor agonist RO27-3225 in alleviating the rats' IAH brain injuries were observed, which indicated that RO27-3225 could reduce brain edema, the expressions of the IL-1β and TNF-α inflammatory cytokines, the blood-brain barrier's permeability and the aquaporin4 (AQP4) and matrix metalloproteinase 9 (MMP9) levels.
