PA1-511A detects glucocorticoid receptor (GR) from human, mouse and rat tissues.
For reconstitution, centrifuge the vial briefly, then add 50 µL PBS to achieve a final antibody concentration of 1 mg/mL.
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.
Glucocorticoid Receptor (NR3C1) is a receptor for glucocorticoids that can act as both a transcription factor and as a regulator of other transcription factors. Glucocorticoid Receptor can also be found in heteromeric cytoplasmic complexes along with heat shock factors and immunophilins. The protein is typically found in the cytoplasm until it binds a ligand, which induces transport into the nucleus. Glucocorticoid Receptor is expressed in the heart, detected in left and right atria, left and right ventricles, aorta, apex, intraventricular septum, and atrioventricular node as well as whole adult and fetal heart. Alternate splicing, the use of at least three different promoters, and alternate translation initiation sites result in several transcript variants encoding the same protein or different isoforms, but the full-length nature of some variants has not been determined. Mutations in the Glucocorticoid Receptor gene are a cause of glucocorticoid resistance, or cortisol, resistance.
