Target

  • Function
    Orphan receptor. Interaction with RXR shifts RXR from its role as a silent DNA-binding partner to an active ligand-binding subunit in mediating retinoid responses through target genes defined by LXRES. LXRES are DR4-type response elements characterized by direct repeats of two similar hexanuclotide half-sites spaced by four nucleotides. Plays an important role in the regulation of cholesterol homeostasis, regulating cholesterol uptake through MYLIP-dependent ubiquitination of LDLR, VLDLR and LRP8.
  • Tissue specificity
    Visceral organs specific expression. Strong expression was found in liver, kidney and intestine followed by spleen and to a lesser extent the adrenals.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the nuclear hormone receptor family. NR1 subfamily.
    Contains 1 nuclear receptor DNA-binding domain.
  • Cellular localization
    Nucleus.

  • Cross-linking (X-ChIP) analysis of RAW 264.7 murine macrophage cell line nuclear cell lysate labeling LXR alpha with ab41902. 10 minutes duration of cross-linking using formaldehyde as cross-linking agent. Postive control: DMSO treated cells and T091317 treated cells (RAW overexpressing human LXRalpha); nehative control: DMSO treated cells and T091317 treated cells (RAW without overexpression of human LXRalpha, RAW VO). Samples were immunoprecipitated with mouse IgG.

  • Overlay histogram showing HepG2 cells stained with ab41902 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab41902, 1µg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22ºC. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) (ab96879) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG2a [ICIGG2A] (ab91361, 2µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed.

Answer

Thank you for taking time to complete our questionnaire and for contacting us. I am sorry to hear this antibody is not providing satisfactory results.
The details provided will enable us to investigate this case and will provide us with vital information for monitoring product quality. I appreciate the time you have spent in the laboratory and understand your concerns. It is regrettable the results have not been successful. ab41902 is specific to LXR alpha and should not cross-react with LXR beta.
Having reviewed the protocol details, I believe this product should have given satisfactory results. It appears that you may have received a faulty vial.
I apologize for the inconvenience and am pleased to offer you in compensation a credit note, or a refund or a free of charge replacement with an alternative anti-LXR alpha such as ab3585 (www.abcam.com/ab3585) or ab106464 (www.abcam.com/ab106464).
Thank you for your cooperation. I look forward to hearing from you with details of how you would like to proceed.
