GtoPdb Ligand ID: 9573

Comment: Adropin is a peptide hormone translated form he EHNO gene [2]. Its biological function is poorly understood, but it was originally suggested to be linked to energy homeostasis and lipid metabolism [1-3].
Adropin has been suggested as an endogenous ligand for the orphan GPCR, GPR19 [4-5], although de-orphanisation requires further confirmatory evidence.
The amino acid sequence of this protein in humans, mice and rats is identical.
