Abstract

•NMU encodes NMU and NURP peptides, and NMS only encodes an NMS peptide in chickens.•cNMUR1 can be potently activated by cNMU and cNMS peptides.•cNMUR2 can be preferentially activated by cNMS peptide.•Both cNMUR1 and cNMUR2 are functionally coupled to multiple signaling pathways.•The tissue distribution of NMU, NMS, NMUR1 and NMUR2 was revealed in an avian species.
