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

Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 2.5 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 85 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.


  • FunctionLigand-activated transcriptional activator. Binds to the XRE promoter region of genes it activates. Activates the expression of multiple phase I and II xenobiotic chemical metabolizing enzyme genes (such as the CYP1A1 gene). Mediates biochemical and toxic effects of halogenated aromatic hydrocarbons. Involved in cell-cycle regulation. Likely to play an important role in the development and maturation of many tissues.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in all tissues tested including blood, brain, heart, kidney, liver, lung, pancreas and skeletal muscle.
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 1 basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) domain.
    Contains 1 PAC (PAS-associated C-terminal) domain.
    Contains 2 PAS (PER-ARNT-SIM) domains.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Nucleus. Initially cytoplasmic; upon binding with ligand and interaction with a HSP90, it translocates to the nucleus.
