  • Relevance

    Melanin Concentrating Hormone (MCH) is the ligand of the somatostatin-like receptor 1 (SLC1 or MCH Receptor). This hormone induces melanosomal aggregation within melanophores and has orexigenic properties and is antagonistic to melanotropin. MCH may act as a neurotransmitter or neuromodulator in a broad array of neuronal functions directed toward the regulation of goal-directed behavior, such as food intake, and general arousal. May also have a role in spermatocyte differentiation.
  • Cellular localization

    Secreted
