PA1-211A detects thyroid receptor (TR) from human, mouse, rat and chicken samples. This antibody does not detect TRv alpha -2 or TR beta-1.
PA1-211A has been successfully used in Western blot, IHC-P, ICC/IF and gel shift procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects a ~48 kDa protein representing recombinant human TR alpha-1 expressed in E. coli. Gel shift experiments show that this product reacts with TR alpha-1 homodimers and TR alpha-1/retinoic X receptor (RXR) heterodimers.
PA1-211A immunizing peptide corresponds to amino acid residues 403-410 from human TR alpha-1. This sequence is completely conserved between human and rat TR alpha-1.
The protein encoded by this gene is a nuclear hormone receptor for triiodothyronine. It is one of the several receptors for thyroid hormone, and has been shown to mediate the biological activities of thyroid hormone. Knockout studies in mice suggest that the different receptors, while having certain extent of redundancy, may mediate different functions of thyroid hormone. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been reported.
