|Official Full Name||urocortin|
|Background||This gene is a member of the sauvagine/corticotropin-releasing factor/urotensin I family. It is structurally related to;the corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) gene and the encoded product is an endogenous ligand for CRF type 2;receptors. In the brain it may be responsible for the effects of stress on appetite. In spite of the gene family name;similarity, the product of this gene has no sequence similarity to urotensin II.|
|Synonyms||UCN; urocortin; UI; UROC; UCN1_HUMAN; Urocortin precursor; Urotensin I; OTTHUMP00000122583; urocortin, preproprotein|

UCN has several biochemical functions, for example, corticotropin-releasing hormone receptor 1 binding, corticotropin-releasing hormone receptor 2 binding, histone deacetylase inhibitor activity. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by UCN itself. We selected most functions UCN had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with UCN. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
