Properties

Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab62590 in the following tested applications.

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 1.25 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 45 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 40 kDa). Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
IHC-P Use a concentration of 4 - 8 µg/ml.

Target

  • Function
    Binds and transactivates the retinoic acid response elements that control expression of the retinoic acid receptor beta 2 and alcohol dehydrogenase 3 genes. Transactivates both the phenobarbital responsive element module of the human CYP2B6 gene and the CYP3A4 xenobiotic response element.
  • Tissue specificity
    Predominantly expressed in liver.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the nuclear hormone receptor family. NR1 subfamily.
    Contains 1 nuclear receptor DNA-binding domain.
  • Domain
    Composed by a short N-terminal domain followed by the DNA binding, hinge, and ligand binding/dimerization domains.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Phosphorylated at Thr-38 by PKC, dephosphorylation of Thr-38 is required for nuclear translocation and activation.
  • Cellular localization
    Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton. Recruited to the cytoplasm by DNAJC7.
