PA1-512 detects glucocorticoid receptor (GR) from human, mouse and rat tissues.
PA1-512 has been successfully used in Western blot, immunohistochemistry, immunocytochemistry, immunoprecipitation, immunofluorescence, ChIP and gel shift procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~97 kDa protein representing GR as well as two other unidentified proteins at ~135 to ~145 kDa from rat liver extract. These cross reacting proteins are not believed to be GR or GR precursors as they do not bind [3H]dexamethasone mesylate. Immunohistochemical staining of GR in rat hippocampus using PA1-512 results in staining primarily in the nucleus. PA1-512 does not disrupt receptor-DNA interactions.
The PA1-512 immunogen is a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues C(245) K P L I L P D T K P K I K D(259) of human GR. The PA1-512 immunizing peptide (Cat. # PEP-002) is available for use in for 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 glucocorticoid receptor is NR3C1.
