Tissue-specific expression of alpha and beta messenger ribonucleic acid isoforms of the human mineralocorticoid receptor in normal and pathological states.


Expression of the mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) is restricted to some sodium-transporting epithelia and a few nonepithelial target tissues. Determination of the genomic structure of the human MR (hMR) revealed two different untranslated exons (1alpha and 1beta), which splice alternatively into the common exon 2, giving rise to two hMR mRNA isoforms (hMR… (More)
