Technical Data
Mineralocorticoid Receptor (MR)
Steroid receptors are ligand dependent, intracellular proteins that stimulate transcription of specific genes by binding to specific DNA sequences following activation by the appropriate hormone. Mineralocorticoids are a family of steroids, secreted by the adrenal cortex, necessary for the regulation of a number of metabolic processes including electrolyte regulation. These compounds exert their effect through their interaction with the mineralocorticoid receptor and that complex's subsequent association with DNA. Given the function of mineralocorticoids, it is not surprising to find that the kidney is a primary target organ for mineralocorticoids and that this organ has been shown to contain MR.

Suitable for use in Western Blot, Immunocytochemistry, Immunohistochemistry and Functional Assays. Not suitable for use in Immunoprecipitation. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot: 1:1000 using ECL.
Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin): 1:100. Staining is blocked by pre-incubating the sample with aldosterone.
Functional Assays: Blocks the binding of aldosterone to the MR.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for 12 months after receipt. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
