FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a protein from the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family. This protein is a receptor for neuromedin U, which is a neuropeptide that is widely distributed in the gut and central nervous system. This receptor plays an important role in the regulation of food intake and body weight. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for one knock-out allele exhibit increased chemical and thermal nociception thresholds, insensitivity to treatment with Nmu or Nms, and altered weight gain following a fast or when fed a high-fat diet that can be sex-dependent. [provided by MGI curators]
