PA1-511A detects glucocorticoid receptor (GR) from human, mouse and rat tissues.
For reconstitution, centrifuge the vial briefly, then add 50uL sterile, distilled water to achieve a final antibody concentration of 1mg/mL in 1xPBS.
PA1-511A has been successfully used in Western blot, immunocytochemistry, immunofluorescence, and immunohistochemistry procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~97 kDa protein representing GR from rat liver extract. Immunocytochemical staining of GR in HeLa cells using PA1-511A results in cytoplasmic staining in the absence of ligand, and nuclear staining after hormone administration.
The PA1-511A immunogen is a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues D(346) Q K P I F N V I P P I P V G S E N W N R C(367) from human GR. The PA1-511A immunizing peptide (Cat. # PEP-001) is available for use in neutralization and control experiments.
Steroid receptors are ligand-dependent, intracellular proteins that stimulate transcription of specific genes by binding to specific DNA sequences following activation by the appropriate hormone. Glucocorticoids are a family of steroids necessary for the regulation of energy metabolism and the immune and inflammatory responses. These compounds exert their effect through their interaction with the glucocoticoid receptor (GR) and that complex's subsequent association with DNA. All normal mammalian tissues examined to date have been shown to contain glucocorticoid receptor.
The corresponding gene for the glucocoritcoid receptor is NR3C1.
