Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/1000 - 1/10000. Predicted molecular weight: 35 kDa.
IHC-P 1/500 - 1/1000. Antigen retrieval is not essential but may optimise staining.
  • Application notesIs unsuitable for Flow Cyt,ICC or IP.
  • Target

    • FunctionReceptor for MSH (alpha, beta and gamma) and ACTH. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins which activate adenylate cyclase.
    • Tissue specificityMelanocytes and corticoadrenal tissue.
    • Involvement in diseaseGenetic variations in MC1R are a cause of susceptibility to cutaneous malignant melanoma type 5 (CMM5) [MIM:613099]. Malignant melanoma is a malignant neoplasm of melanocytes, arising de novo or from a pre-existing benign nevus, which occurs most often in the skin but also may involve other sites.
    • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family.
    • Cellular localizationCell membrane.
