Protein Information
Synonyms MTLRP
Function Ghrelin is the ligand for growth hormone secretagogue receptor type 1 (GHSR). Induces the release of growth hormone from the pituitary. Has an appetite-stimulating effect, induces adiposity and stimulates gastric acid secretion. Involved in growth regulation.
Cellular Location Secreted.
Tissue Location Highest level in stomach. All forms are found in serum as well. Other tissues compensate for the loss of ghrelin synthesis in the stomach following gastrectomy

Ghrelin, a growth hormone (GH)-releasing acylated peptide, was identified as the endogenous ligand for the growth hormone (GH) secretagogue receptor 1a. It stimulates the release of GH from the anterior pituitary thro µgh the GH secretagogue receptor (GHS-R). It may also play a role in regulating the digestive system and energy balance.
