  • General notes


    This antibody was raised by a genetic immunization technique. Genetic immunization can be used to generate antibodies by directly delivering antigen-coding DNA into the animal, rather than injecting a protein or peptide (Tang et al. PubMed: 1545867; Chambers and Johnston PubMed 12910245; Barry and Johnston PubMed: 9234514). The animal's cells produce the protein, which stimulates the animal's immune system to produce antibodies against that particular protein. A vector coding for a partial fusion protein was used for genetic immunisation of a mouse and the resulting serum was tested in Western blot against an E.coli lysate containing that partial fusion protein. Genetic immunization offers enormous advantages over the traditional protein-based immunization method. DNA is faster, cheaper and easier to produce and can be produced by standard techniques readily amenable to automation. Furthermore, the antibodies generated by genetic immunization are usually of superior quality with regard to specificity, affinity and recognizing the native protein.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/1000. Predicted molecular weight: 78 kDa.

This antibody has been tested in Western blot against an E.coli lysate containing the partial recombinant fusion protein used as an immunogen. We have no data on detection of endogenous protein.

Target

  • Function
    Mediates dioxin toxicity and is involved in regulation of cell growth and differentiation. Represses the transcription activity of AHR by competing with this transcription factor for heterodimer formation with the ARNT and subsequently binding to the xenobiotic response element (XRE) sequence present in the promoter regulatory region of variety of genes. Represses CYP1A1 by binding the XRE sequence and recruiting ANKRA2, HDAC4 and/or HDAC5. Autoregulates its expression by associating with its own XRE site.
  • Tissue specificity
    Highly expressed in testis, lung, ovary, spleen and pancreas. Highly expressed in mononuclear cells (MNCs) from umbilical cord blood. Isoform 3 is highly expressed in lung, kidney, spleen and thymus. Down-regulated malignant tissue from different anatomical origins, including colon, breast, lung, stomach, cervix, and ovary.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) domain.
    Contains 1 PAS (PER-ARNT-SIM) domain.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Predominantly in the nuclear compartment. First cytoplasmic, translocates into the nuclear compartment upon interaction with ARNT in the cytoplasmic compartment.
