Details

Target of this antibody:
MC4 Receptor
Alternative names of antibody target:
melanocortin receptor 4, melanocortin 4 receptor, melanocortin-4 receptor
Background information:
MC4R (Melanocortin-4 receptor) belongs to the GPCR superfamily that is responsible for multiple signal transduction pathway which includes the cAMP and MAPK signaling pathways. Expression of MC4R has been reported in brain. From genetic studies of mice and humans, it was established that MC4 receptor plays a critical role in appetite regulation. Mutation in the MC4R gene is associated with obesity in humans.

Description
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.The receptors are ligand binding factors of type 1, 2 or 3 and protein-molecules that receive chemical-signals from outside a cell. When such chemical-signals couple or bind to a receptor, they cause some form of cellular/tissue-response, e.g. a change in the electrical-activity of a cell. In this sense, am olfactory receptor is a protein-molecule that recognizes and responds to endogenous-chemical signals, chemokinesor cytokines e.g. an acetylcholine-receptor recognizes and responds to its endogenous-ligand, acetylcholine. However, sometimes in pharmacology, the term is also used to include other proteins that are drug-targets, such as enzymes, transporters and ion-channels.
Properties
If you buy Antibodies supplied by Biovision they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
