Melanin-concentrating hormone (MCH) receptors (provisional nomenclature as recommended by NC-IUPHAR [5]) are activated by an endogenous nonadecameric cyclic peptide identical in humans and rats (DFDMLRCMLGRVYRPCWQV; mammalian MCH) generated from a precursor (PMCH, P20382), which also produces neuropeptide EI (PMCH, P20382) and neuropeptide GE (PMCH, P20382).
