Application Abreviews Notes
ChIP Use at an assay dependent dilution.

IP Use at an assay dependent dilution.
WB 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 274 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 274 kDa).


  • FunctionTranscriptional corepressor of NR4A2/NURR1 and acts through histone deacetylases (HDACs) to keep promoters of NR4A2/NURR1 target genes in a repressed deacetylated state (By similarity). Mediates the transcriptional repression activity of some nuclear receptors by promoting chromatin condensation, thus preventing access of the basal transcription. Isoform 1 and isoform 5 have different affinities for different nuclear receptors.
  • Tissue specificityUbiquitous. High levels of expression are detected in lung, spleen and brain.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the N-CoR nuclear receptor corepressors family.
    Contains 2 SANT domains.
  • DomainThe N-terminal region contains repression functions that are divided into three independent repression domains (RD1, RD2 and RD3). The C-terminal region contains the nuclear receptor-interacting domains that are divided in two separate interaction domains (ID1 and ID2).
    The two interaction domains (ID) contain a conserved sequence referred to as the CORNR box. This motif is required and sufficient to permit binding to unligated TR and RARS. Sequences flanking the CORNR box determine nuclear hormone receptor specificity.

  • Anti-NCOR2 antibody - ChIP Grade (ab24551) at 1/1000 dilution + HeLa nuclear extract

    Predicted band size : 274 kDa
    Observed band size : 270 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
  • ab24551 staining NCOR2 (green) in Human Hela cells by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with methanol and blocked with 0.2% fish scale gelatin for 1 hour at 25°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/300 in PBS + 0.2% fish scale gelatin) for 20 minutes at 25°C. An Alexa Fluor®488-conjugated Donkey anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal (1/500) was used as the secondary antibody.
