The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 43 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 37 kDa).
Receptor for MSH (alpha, beta and gamma) and ACTH. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins which activate adenylate cyclase. This receptor is a possible mediator of the immunomodulation properties of melanocortins.
Expressed in the brain but not in the melanoma cells.
Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family.
MC5 Receptor contains a number of potential glycosylation sites (SwissProt) which may explain its migration at a higher molecular weight than predicted.
