1/10 - 1/50.
1/1000. Predicted molecular weight: 63 kDa.
Orphan nuclear receptor. Binds DNA as a monomer to hormone response elements (HRE) containing a single core motif half-site preceded by a short A-T-rich sequence. This isomer binds to the consensus sequence 5'-[AT][TA]A[AT][CGT]TAGGTCA-3'. Regulates a number of genes involved in lipid metabolism such as apolipoproteins AI, APOA5, CIII, CYP71 and PPARgamma, in cerebellum and photoreceptor development including PCP2, OPN1SW, OPN1SM AND ARR3, in circadian rhythm with BMAL1, and skeletal muscle development with MYOD1. Possible receptor for cholesterol or one of its derivatives.
Widely expressed in a number of tissues.
Belongs to the nuclear hormone receptor family. NR1 subfamily. Contains 1 nuclear receptor DNA-binding domain.
Phosphorylation by PKC in neurons inhibits transcriptional activity. Phosphorylated on Thr-216 by ERK2 in vitro. Sumoylated by SENP1 and SENP2. Sumoylation, promoted by PIAS2, PIAS3, PIASy but not PIAS1, enhances the transcriptional activity. Desumoylated by SENP1. Ubiquitinated. Ubiquitination is required for efficient transcriptional activity and is prevented by Hairless.
Immunofluorescence of HeLa cells labelling ROR alpha with ab82289. Hela cells were fixed with 4% PFA (20 min), permeabilized with Triton X-100 (0.1%, 10 min), then incubated with ab82289 (1:25, 1 h at 37℃). Alexa Fluor® 488 conjugated donkey anti-rabbit antibody (green) was used as the secondary antibody (1:400, 50 min at 37℃). Cytoplasmic actin was counterstained with Alexa Fluor® 555 (red) conjugated Phalloidin (7units/ml, 1 h at 37℃) and nuclei were counterstained with DAPI (blue) (10 µg/ml, 10 min). ROR alpha immunoreactivity is localized to the nucleus.
