Melatonin Receptor

Melatonin Receptor

The G protein-coupled receptor superfamily, which preferentially couples to G-i/o proteins, includes melatonin receptors. Mammals have three members of the melatonin receptor subfamily: MT1 and MT2, both of which have a high affinity for the neurohormone melatonin, and GPR50, which has a high degree of sequence homology to both MT1 and MT2 but does not bind to either melatonin or any other known ligand.

The biological functions of MT1 and MT2 include the control of biological rhythms, sleep, pain, retinal, neuronal, and immune processes. Depression, Alzheimer's disease, and type 2 diabetes are all linked to altered melatonin receptor function or expression in humans.
