The gene dosage effect of the MC4-R (melanocortin 4 receptor) on obesity suggests that regulation of MC4-R expression and function is critically important to the central control of energy homoeostasis. In order to identify putative MC4-R regulatory proteins, we performed a yeast two-hybrid screen of a mouse brain cDNA library using the mouse MC4-R intracellular tail (residues 303-332) as bait. ...
