What kind of primer nd paint should I use for MDF paneling?

I would like to repaint a central wall in my home but the wall is MDF and not drywall. I would like to know what is the best kind of primer and paint for MDF.  Also, is there anything special that I need to do besides priming and painting the wall?

Water will cause MDF to swell so on BARE MDF you want to use an oil based primer.  If your wall has already been painted, then you can use anything you'd like.

 Just curious as to why MDF was used  in a living area? How are the seams treated ? Are they left exposed,  just caulked, covered with battens, or an attempt made to tape the seams?
