PA1-216 detects the thyroid hormone receptor alpha 2 from human and mouse samples.
PA1-216 has been successfully used in Western blot, ICC/IF and immunohistochemistry (paraffin) procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects bands at ~58 kDa representing Tra2 in mouse tissue. This antibody also detects a ~43 kDa protein which is believed to be non-specific.
The PA1-216 immunizing peptide corresponds to amino acid residues 455-469 from rat thyroid hormone receptor alpha 2.
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.
