Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 16 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 19 kDa).


  • FunctionResponsible for the manifestation of peripheral-type benzodiazepine recognition sites and is most likely to comprise binding domains for benzodiazepines and isoquinoline carboxamides. May play a role in the transport of porphyrins and heme. Plays a role in the transport of cholesterol across mitochondrial membranes in steroidogenic cells.
  • Tissue specificityFound in many tissue types. Expressed at the highest levels under normal conditions in tissues that synthesize steroids.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the TspO/BZRP family.
  • Cellular localizationMitochondrion membrane.

  • Anti-PBR antibody (ab108489) at 1 µg/ml + P0 Mouse Brown Adipose Tissue Mouse Tissue Lysate at 10 µg

    Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (HRP) preadsorbed (ab97080) at 1/5000 dilution
    Developed using the ECL technique

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size : 19 kDa
    Observed band size : 16 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : 15 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time : 3 minutes
