Mineralocorticoid Receptors

Mineralocorticoid receptors (MRs) are nuclear hormone receptors of the NR3C class, which also includes androgen, progesterone and glucocorticoid receptors. They can exist as homo- or heterodimers and are coupled to Hsp90 or HMGB proteins.

Mineralocorticoid receptors (MRs) are nuclear hormone receptors of the NR3C class, which also includes androgen, progesterone and glucocorticoid receptors. They can exist as homo- or heterodimers and are coupled to Hsp90 or HMGB proteins. The major signaling pathway used by MRs is via direct DNA binding and transcriptional regulation of target genes. They can also signal by binding to other proteins, mainly with transcription factors such as NF-κB, AP-1 or STAT.
