MGI Phenotype FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene is specifically expressed in a subpopulation of neuroendocrine cells, and is upregulated by nerve growth factor. The structural organization of this gene is similar to that of the rat gene, and both the translated and the untranslated regions show a high degree of sequence similarity to the rat gene. The encoded secretory protein also shares similarities with the secretogranin/chromogranin family, however, its exact function is not known. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygotes for a targeted null mutation are small, lean, hyperactive, hypermetabolic, and infertile. Mutants exhibit markedly reduced leptin levels and altered hypothalamic proopiomelanocortin, neuropeptide Y, and agouti-related peptide expression. [provided by MGI curators]
