PA1-810A detects retinoic acid receptor (RAR) from human and mouse tissues and cells. This antibody does not detect RAR beta or gamma forms.
PA1-810A has been successfully used in Western blot procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~50-58 kDa protein representing RAR alpha from Jurkat, CEM-C7, and IM9 cells.
The PA1-810A immunogen is a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues C S(444) P S L S P S S H R S S P A T Q S P (462) of mouse RAR alpha. PA1-810A immunizing peptide (Cat. # PEP-004) is available for use in neutralization and control experiments.
Retinoic acid, a metabolite of vitamin A, is necessary for normal organogenesis but acts as a teratogen at high levels during embryonic and fetal development. Retinoic acid functions through its interaction with the nuclear protein, retinoic acid receptor (RAR). RAR belongs to the steroid and thyroid hormone superfamily of nuclear receptor proteins which exert their effects by binding to specific DNA response elements, thus regulating gene expression in target cells. RAR exists as three major subtypes: alpha, beta and gamma. The corresponding gene for the retinoic acid receptor alpha is NR1B1.
