Technical Data
Opioid Receptor, kappa (OPRK, Kappa Type Opioid Receptor, KOR, KOR-1, Opiate Receptor kappa 1, OPRK1, Oprk2, R21)
KOR1, an Opioid Receptor, plays a modulatory role in specific aspects of opioid function such as the control of pain. Its endogenous ligand, dynorphin A, is an important neurotransmitter in the central and peripheral nervous systems. KOR1 is believed to mediate sedation, analgesia, and diuresis. KOR1 has been reported to be expressed in the central and peripheral nervous systems, placenta, uterus, breast, and blood. ESTs have been isolated from placenta and prostate libraries.

Suitable for use in Immunohistochemistry (paraffin-embedded sections). Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
