In order to better understand the role of melanin-concentrating hormone (MCH) in the regulation of appetite in fish, the mRNAs of two forms of MCH, prepro-MCH and MCH2, and two forms of MCH receptors, MCH-R1 and MCH-R2, were isolated from winter flounder (Pseudopleuronectes americanus).

The new loci included four previously associated with body mass index (in or near FTO, SEC16B, TRA2B and TMEM18), three in or near other genes implicated in energy homeostasis (BSX, CRTC1 and MCHR2) and three in or near genes implicated in hormonal regulation (INHBA, PCSK2 and RXRG).
Fanelli et al., Reggio nell'Emilia, Italy. In Proteins, 2004
results of molecular simulations of MCHR2 in the free and hormone-bound forms provide suggestions on the amino acids responsible for the transfer of the structural changes from the agonist binding site to the G-protein coupling domains
