RNA expression pattern

Orexin receptor type 1 (Ox1R or OX1), also known as hypocretin receptor type 1, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the HCRTR1 gene.[1]

Function

The orexin 1 receptor (OX1), is a G-protein coupled receptor expressed in the hypothalamus and involved in the regulation of feeding behaviour. OX1 selectively binds the orexin-A neuropeptide. It shares 64% identity with OX2.[1]
