Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have corticotropin-releasing hormone activity; corticotropin-releasing hormone receptor 1 binding activity; and corticotropin-releasing hormone receptor 2 binding activity. Involved in several processes, including adrenal gland development; glucocorticoid biosynthetic process; and locomotory exploration behavior. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the extracellular space; perikaryon; and varicosity. Used to study primary hyperaldosteronism. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in obesity and panic disorder. Orthologous to human CRH (corticotropin releasing hormone).
