Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1)
Predicted to have neuromedin B receptor binding activity and neuropeptide hormone activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including arachidonic acid secretion; glucose homeostasis; and regulation of hormone secretion. Predicted to localize to neuron projection. Is expressed in brain; medulla oblongata basal plate mantle layer; and pons mantle layer. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in obesity. Orthologous to human NMB (neuromedin B).
