  • Function
    Ligand-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 specificity
    Expressed in all tissues tested including blood, brain, heart, kidney, liver, lung, pancreas and skeletal muscle.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) domain.
    Contains 1 PAC (PAS-associated C-terminal) domain.
    Contains 2 PAS (PER-ARNT-SIM) domains.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Initially cytoplasmic; upon binding with ligand and interaction with a HSP90, it translocates to the nucleus.

  • ab84833 staining Aryl hydrocarbon receptor in MDA-MB-231 cells treated with tranilast (ab120643), by ICC/IF. Increase in Aryl hydrocarbon receptor expression correlates with increased concentration of tranilast, as described in literature.
    The cells were incubated at 37°C for 24h in media containing different concentrations of ab120643 (telmisartan) in DMSO, fixed with 100% methanol for 5 minutes at -20°C and blocked with PBS containing 10% goat serum, 0.3 M glycine, 1% BSA and 0.1% tween for 2h at room temperature. Staining of the treated cells with ab84833 (5 µg/ml) was performed overnight at 4°C in PBS containing 1% BSA and 0.1% tween. A DyLight 488 goat anti-rabbit polyclonal antibody (ab96899) at 1/250 dilution was used as the secondary antibody. Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI and are shown in blue.
  • ab84833 staining Aryl hydrocarbon Receptor in Human colon tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-Fr - frozen sections). Tissue was fixed with acetone and blocked with 10% sreum for 30 minutes at 21°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody for 16 hours at 4°C. An undiluted Alexa fluor®555-conjugated Donkey anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal was used as the secondary antibody.

  • ab84833 staining Aryl hydrocarbon receptor protein on mouse embryonic stem cell by ICC/IF. The cells were paraformaldehyde fixed, permeabilized in 0.1% triton-x and blocked in 1% serum for 30 minutes at 21°C. The primary antibody was diluted 1/100 and incubated with sample for 2 hours at 21°C. An Alexa Fluor® 488 conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG, diluted 1/100 was used as secondary.

Thank you for your inquiry. I can confirm that the flow cytometry image with ab84833 is courtesy of an anonymous Abreview. I would like to suggest to review the Abreview: https://www.abcam.com/index.html?datasheet=84833&tab=abreviews&intabreviewid=21732 If you have any additional questions about the specific protocol used I would like to encourage you to contact the author of the Abreview via the link provided on the top of the page with the abreview. Protocols usually have to be optimized and I would like to recommend to start with a standard protocol for intracellular staining: https://www.abcam.com/index.html?pageconfig=resource&rid=11448 I hope this information is helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any further questions.
