PA1-331B detects recombinant human liver X receptor (LXR).
PA1-331B has been successfully used in Western blot procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~64 kDa and ~80 kDa protein representing recombinant human LXR alpha and beta.
The PA1-331B immunogen is a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues C L(432) R L Q D K K L P P L L S E(445) of human LXR alpha. This sequence also corresponds to amino acids 442-455 of the human LXR beta. PA1-331B immunizing peptide (Cat. # PEP-115) is available for use in neutralization and control experiments.
Liver X receptors (LXRs), also known as RLD1, are oxysterol activated nuclear receptors which are involved in the regulation of genesis and metabolism of cholesterols and bile acids. LXRs form heterodimeric complexes with the retinoic acid receptors (RARs) once activated by their respective oxysterol ligands. Two known isoforms, alpha and beta, are differentially expressed; the alpha isoform predominantly expressed in liver, whereas beta isoform expression has been shown to be ubiquitous.
The corresponding gene for the LXR is NR1H3.
