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.

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.
