  • MCHR1
  • melanin-concentrating hormone receptor 1
  • MCH1R
  • MCH receptor 1

General information

  • MCH1R was shown, by immunocytochemistry, to be present in the human infundibular nucleus/median eminence, paraventricular nucleus, lateral hypothalamic area, and perifornical area. [1]
  • MCH1R staining was found in nerve fibers in the periventricular nucleus, dorsomedial and ventromedial nucleus, suprachiasmatic nucleus, and tuberomammillary nucleus. [1]
