Melanin-concentrating hormone (MCH) is a potent orexigenic neuropeptide and a physiological antagonist of alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (alpha-MSH) in the brain as well as at peripheral sites, including the pigmentary systems of specific vertebrates. Two receptor subtypes for MCH, MCH-R1 and MCH-R2, have been cloned, but other receptor subtypes are likely to exist. Based on our own data and the current literature, we have compared the expression of different receptors for MCH in various… CONTINUE READING
