Immunofluorescent analysis using ER-beta polyclonal antibody (Product# PA1-310B) shows nuclear localization of ER-beta in MCF7 cells. Formalin fixed cells were permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 in TBS for 10 minutes at room temperature. Cells were blocked with 1% Blocker BSA (Product # 37525) for 15 minutes at room temperature. Cells were probed with a rabbit polyclonal antibody recognizing ER-beta (Product# PA1-310B), at a dilution of 1:100 for 1 hour at room temperature. Cells were washed with PBS and incubated with DyLight 488 goat-anti-rabbit IgG secondary antibody (Product # 35552) at a dilution of 1:400 for 30 minutes at room temperature. Nuclei (blue) were stained with Hoechst 33342 dye (Product # 62249). Images were taken on a Thermo Scientific ArrayScan at 20X magnification.

PA1-310B has been successfully used in Western blot, immunohistochemistry, immunofluorescence, and immunocytochemistry procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~55 kDa protein representing ER beta from both rat brain homogenate as well as various breast cancer cell lines. Immunocytochemical staining of ER beta in cells overexpressing the human protein results in nuclear staining.
The PA1-310B immunogen is a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues C(467) S S T E D S K N K E S S Q N L Q S Q(485) of rat ER beta. This immunizing peptide (PEP-007) is available for use in neutralization and control experiments.
Recombinant ER beta expressed in baculovirus system (Cat. # RP-311 and RP-312) can be purchased for control experiments in Western blot and gel shift assays.
The Estrogen Receptor beta (ER beta) protein is approximately 55kD, though multiple isoforms ranging from 36-59kD have been described. Human ER beta was initially cloned and characterized from testis. The size and structure of ER beta is very similar to ER alpha, with the ligand and DNA binding domains being highly conserved, while the amino terminus which serves as the transactivation domain has diverged significantly. Similar in function to ER alpha, ER beta binds to estrogen with a high affinity and regulates estrogen-specific gene activation through direct interaction with estrogen response elements (ERE's).
