    Xiao Ming Guan
    Merck Research Laboratories, Rahway, NJ 07065, USA
    Cell Metab 11:101-12. 2010
    ..These results demonstrate that BRS-3 has a role in energy homeostasis that complements several well-known pathways and that BRS-3 agonists represent a potential approach to the treatment of obesity...

    Brain Res Mol Brain Res 59:273-9. 1998
    ..These results suggest that the altered hypothalamic POMC and/or NPY functions may be important contributing factors for the development of obesity in this animal model...

    A S Chen
    Department of Obesity Research, Merck Research Laboratories, Rahway, New Jersey, USA
    Nat Genet 26:97-102. 2000
    ..Mice lacking both Mc3r and Mc4r become significantly heavier than Mc4r(-/-) mice. We conclude that Mc3r and Mc4r serve non-redundant roles in the regulation of energy homeostasis...
