MGI Phenotype FUNCTION: This gene encodes a member of the corticotropin-releasing hormone peptide family that participates in coordinating autonomic, endocrine, and behavioral responses to stress. The encoded preproprotein undergoes proteolytic processing to generate a mature, functional hormone. The pancreatic islets isolated from mice lacking the encoded protein secrete less insulin in response to high glucose concentrations. Transgenic mice overexpressing the encoded protein exhibit a metabolically favorable phenotype resisting obesity and hyperglycemia on a high-fat diet. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2016]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for one null allele are protected from the hyperinsulinemia, hyperglycemia, glucose intolerance, hepatic steatosis and hypertriglyceridemia induced by a high-fat diet, and show better glucose tolerance as they age. Mice homozygous for another null allele show improved social memory. [provided by MGI curators]
