Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab3579 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|EMSA||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|ChIP||Use at an assay dependent concentration. See Lerner et al., 2003.|
|GSA||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|Flow Cyt||Use at an assay dependent concentration.
ab171870 - Rabbit polyclonal IgG, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
|ICC||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|IP||Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.|
|WB||Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 97 kDa.Can be blocked with Glucocorticoid Receptor peptide (ab5833). Detects an ~97 kDa protein representing GR as well as two other unidentified proteins at ~135 to ~145 kDa from rat liver extract. These cross reacting proteins are not believed to be GR or GR precursors as they do not bind [3H]dexamethasone mesylate.|
|IHC-Fr||Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Staining of GR in rat hippocampus results in staining primarily in the nucleus.|

FunctionReceptor for glucocorticoids (GC). Has a dual mode of action: as a transcription factor that binds to glucocorticoid response elements (GRE) and as a modulator of other transcription factors. Affects inflammatory responses, cellular proliferation and differentiation in target tissues. Could act as a coactivator for STAT5-dependent transcription upon growth hormone (GH) stimulation and could reveal an essential role of hepatic GR in the control of body growth. Involved in chromatin remodeling. Plays a significant role in transactivation. Involved in nuclear translocation.
Tissue specificityWidely expressed. In the heart, detected in left and right atria, left and right ventricles, aorta, apex, intraventricular septum, and atrioventricular node as well as whole adult and fetal heart.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in NR3C1 are a cause of glucocorticoid resistance (GCRES) [MIM:138040]; also known as cortisol resistance. It is a hypertensive, hyperandrogenic disorder characterized by increased serum cortisol concentrations. Inheritance is autosomal dominant.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the nuclear hormone receptor family. NR3 subfamily.
Contains 1 nuclear receptor DNA-binding domain.
DomainComposed of three domains: a modulating N-terminal domain, a DNA-binding domain and a C-terminal ligand-binding domain.
modificationsIncreased proteasome-mediated degradation in response to glucocorticoids.
Phosphorylated in the absence of hormone; becomes hyperphosphorylated in the presence of glucocorticoid. The Ser-203-phosphorylated form is mainly cytoplasmic, and the Ser-211-phosphorylated form is nuclear. Transcriptional activity correlates with the amount of phosphorylation at Ser-211.
Sumoylated; this reduces transcription transactivation.
Ubiquitinated; restricts glucocorticoid-mediated transcriptional signaling.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Nucleus. Cytoplasmic in the absence of ligand, nuclear after ligand-binding and Nucleus. Localized largely in the nucleus.
