26469516 Data show that co-expression with MRAPalpha, but not MRAP2, enhances MC4R constitutive activity. MRAPalpha-enhanced MC4R constitutive activity is not dependent on MC4R complex glycosylation but may result from MRAPalpha-induced changes in MC4R conformational states.
25051171 MC3R is a 2-exon gene that requires a 5' UTR for translation, localization, and potential interaction with MRAP2
23869016 In a study of humans with severe, early-onset obesity, they found four rare, potentially pathogenic genetic variants in MRAP2, suggesting that the gene may also contribute to body weight regulation in humans.
23418361 Data suggest that MRAP2 regulates expression of melanocortin receptors (MC1R-MC5R); MRAP2 is highly expressed in fetal adrenal glands; MRAP2 is also expressed in hypothalamus, a site that expresses high levels of MC3R and MC4R. [REVIEW]
22419722 MRAP2 is positively regulated by ACTH and AngII in human adrenocortical tissues.
21367968 The MC2R/MRAP2 complex requires much higher concentrations of ACTH to activate compared with the MC2R/MRAP complex.
20371771 MRAP2 is an endogenous inhibitor that competes with MRAP for binding to MC2R and decreases the potency of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH).
19329486 identify MRAP and MRAP2 as unique bidirectional regulators of the melanocortin receptor family
