Agouti-related Protein (AgRP), also known as the protein product of the agouti-related transcript (ART), is a neuropeptide and a functional antagonist of alpha-MSH on MC-3 and MC-4 receptors, both of which are implicated in obesity. AgRP shares sequence and structural homology with the Agouti protein and has similar expression patterns in both mouse and human.
It is also supsected to play a role in modulation of pain.
