FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes one of two high affinity forms of a receptor for melatonin, the primary hormone secreted by the pineal gland. This receptor is a G-protein coupled, 7-transmembrane receptor that is responsible for melatonin effects on mammalian circadian rhythm and reproductive alterations affected by day length. The receptor is an integral membrane protein that is readily detectable and localized to two specific regions of the brain. The hypothalamic suprachiasmatic nucleus appears to be involved in circadian rhythm while the hypophysial pars tuberalis may be responsible for the reproductive effects of melatonin.

PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for disruptions in this gene are essentially normal, with normal circadian functions. In vitro studies report the absence of inhibitory effects of melatonin on suprachiasma neuronal firing. [provided by MGI curators]
