Heat-mediated antigen retrieval is recommended prior to staining, using a 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0, for 10 minutes followed by cooling at room temperature for 20 min. Following antigen retrieval, incubate samples with primary antibody for 10 min at room temperature. A suggested positive control is thyroid tissue.
Thyroid hormone receptors (TRs) are ligand dependent members of the steroid/retinoic acid superfamily of transcription factors. The two genes encoding TRs identified to date, TRalpha and TRBeta, have been mapped to human chromosomes 17 and 3, respectively. TRs bind to thyroid hormone response elements (TREs) with half site binding motifs in the orientation of palindromes, direct repeats, or inverted palindromes. The affinities of binding are both variable and influenced differentially by 3,5,3'-triiodo-L-thyronine (T-3).
