Summary The present invention relates generally to a ligand for a protein associated with modulating obesity, diabetes and metabolic energy levels in animals including humans. More particularly, the present invention provides a ligand of the protein, Beacon, and its homologs. The identification of a Beacon ligand permits the identification of agents which agonize or antagonize the Beacon-ligand interaction and, hence, the development of therapeutic molecules useful in modulating obesity, diabetes and/or energy imbalance.
