FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a member of the seven-pass transmembrane G protein-coupled melanocortin receptor protein family that stimulate cAMP signal transduction. The encoded protein is a receptor for melanocyte-stimulating hormone and adrenocorticotropic hormone and is suggested to play a role in sebum generation. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2010]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygous mutation of this gene results in a severe defect in water repulsion and thermoregulation due to decreased production of sebaceous lipids. Males exhibit less aggressive and more defensive behavior when placed with wildtype males. [provided by MGI curators]
