Related Product Information for anti-MC4R antibody

   Melanocortin 4 receptor is a G-protein-coupled receptor from the melanocortin receptor family that binds amelanocyte stimulating hormon ~(a-MSH). These receptors transduce signals provided by a-MSH by coupling to the G-protein and activating adenyl ate cyclase). MC4R is located mainly in the hypothalamus in the brain and it is responsible for appetite and satiety regulation. It also plays a role in energy homeostasis and somatic growth. Mutations in MC4R have been associated with inherited obesity2.
 Applications Tested/Suitable for anti-MC4R antibody   

ELISA (EIA), Western Blot (WB), Immunohistochemistry (IHC)-Paraffin

 Application Notes for anti-MC4R antibody    This antibody is suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot (2 ug/mL) and Immunohistochemistry with FFPE sections (10 ug/mL). This antibody has not been tested in other applications.

 NCBI Summary for MC4R    The protein encoded by this gene is a membrane-bound receptor and member of the melanocortin receptor family. The encoded protein interacts with adrenocorticotropic and MSH hormones and is mediated by G proteins. This is an intronless gene. Defects in this gene are a cause of autosomal dominant obesity. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2010]
Section Bar
 UniProt Comments for MC4R    MC4R: receptor specific to the heptapeptide core common to adrenocorticotropic hormone and alpha-, beta-, and gamma-MSH. A G-protein coupled receptor that stimulates adenylate cyclase. Defects are a cause of autosomal dominant obesity

Protein type: Membrane protein, multi-pass; GPCR, family 1; Receptor, GPCR; Membrane protein, integral
