Mutation analysis of the MCHR1 gene in human obesity
Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article › Research › peer-review
The importance of the melanin-concentrating hormone (MCH) system for regulation of energy homeostasis and body weight has been demonstrated in rodents. We analysed the human MCH receptor 1 gene (MCHR1) with respect to human obesity.
