Appetit-regulierendes Hormon

Das GHRL-Gen codiert ein Protein, welches in zwei Peptidhormone gespalten wird, die in der Regulation von Appetit und Energieaufnahme bzw. -bilanzierung beteiligt sind. Mutationen sind mit Adipositas in Zusammenhang gebracht. Die Vererbung folgt einem dominanten Model. Es kann zudem zu synergistischen Reaktionen mit Mutationen in anderen Genen kommen.
