Annotation score:5 out of 5

<p>The annotation score provides a heuristic measure of the annotation content of a UniProtKB entry or proteome. This score <strong>cannot</strong> be used as a measure of the accuracy of the annotation as we cannot define the 'correct annotation' for any given protein.<p><a href='/help/annotation_score' target='_top'>More...</a></p>
-Experimental evidence at protein leveli <p>This indicates the type of evidence that supports the existence of the protein.

Regulates food intake, energy expenditure and body weight in response to metabolic and toxin-induced stresses. Binds to its receptor, GFRAL, and activates GFRAL-expressing neurons localized in the area postrema and nucleus tractus solitarius of the brainstem. It then triggers the activation of neurons localized within the parabrachial nucleus and central amygdala, which contitutes part of the 'emergency circuit' that shapes feeding responses to stressful conditions (PubMed:28953886, PubMed:28846097, PubMed:28846099, PubMed:28572090, PubMed:23468844, PubMed:29046435).

On hepatocytes, inhibits growth hormone signaling (PubMed:28572090).

Mutants weight more, have increases adiposity associated with increased spontaneous food intake and exhibit reduced basal energy expenditure and physical activity (PubMed:23468844). Female mutants exhibit some additional alterations in reduced basal energy expenditure and physical activity (PubMed:23468844). At behavioral level, they exhibit a task-dependent increase in locomotion and exploration and reduced anxiety-related behaviors across tests. Their spatial working memory and social behaviors are not affected. They form an increased association with conditioned stimulus in fear conditioning testing and also display significantly improved prepulse inhibition (PubMed:28081177).2 Publications

<p>The checksum is a form of redundancy check that is calculated from the sequence.
