|Other Names||Growth hormone secretagogue receptor type 1, GHS-R, GH-releasing peptide receptor, GHRP, Ghrelin receptor, GHSR|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|

This gene encodes a member of the G-protein coupledreceptor family. The encoded protein may play a role in energyhomeostasis and regulation of body weight. Two identifiedtranscript variants are expressed in several tissues and areevolutionary conserved in fish and swine. One transcript, 1a,excises an intron and encodes the functional protein; this proteinis the receptor for the Ghrelin ligand and defines a neuroendocrinepathway for growth hormone release. The second transcript (1b)retains the intron and does not function as a receptor for Ghrelin;however, it may function to attenuate activity of isoform 1a.Mutations in this gene are associated with autosomal idiopathicshort stature.
