  • Function

    Receptor that binds peroxisome proliferators such as hypolipidemic drugs and fatty acids. Once activated by a ligand, the receptor binds to a promoter element in the gene for acyl-CoA oxidase and activates its transcription. It therefore controls the peroxisomal beta-oxidation pathway of fatty acids. Key regulator of adipocyte differentiation and glucose homeostasis.
  • Tissue specificity

    Highest expression in adipose tissue. Lower in skeletal muscle, spleen, heart and liver. Also detectable in placenta, lung and ovary.
  • Involvement in disease

    Note=Defects in PPARG can lead to type 2 insulin-resistant diabetes and hyptertension. PPARG mutations may be associated with colon cancer.
    Defects in PPARG may be associated with susceptibility to obesity (OBESITY) [MIM:601665]. It is a condition characterized by an increase of body weight beyond the limitation of skeletal and physical requirements, as the result of excessive accumulation of body fat.
    Defects in PPARG are the cause of familial partial lipodystrophy type 3 (FPLD3) [MIM:604367]. Familial partial lipodystrophies (FPLD) are a heterogeneous group of genetic disorders characterized by marked loss of subcutaneous (sc) fat from the extremities. Affected individuals show an increased preponderance of insulin resistance, diabetes mellitus and dyslipidemia.
    Genetic variations in PPARG can be associated with susceptibility to glioma type 1 (GLM1) [MIM:137800]. Gliomas are central nervous system neoplasms derived from glial cells and comprise astrocytomas, glioblastoma multiforme, oligodendrogliomas, and ependymomas. Note=Polymorphic PPARG alleles have been found to be significantly over-represented among a cohort of American patients with sporadic glioblastoma multiforme suggesting a possible contribution to disease susceptibility.

    Immunoprecipitation analysis using Fluorescence labeled PPAR gamma generated in vitro translation. Anti-PPAR gamma antibody (ab41928) is diluted with translation production and mixed with protein G Sepharose beads. It is then rotated at 4oC for 1 hour and precipitates are eluted with addition of SDS loading buffer. Samples are incubated for 10minutes at 70°C and analyzed with Fluorescence imager.

Proteins that are found exclusively or predominantly in a sub-cellular location can be enriched in a lysate of the sub-cellular fraction compared to whole cell or tissue lysates. This can be useful when trying to obtain a signal for a weakly-expressed protein. For instance, a nuclear protein will be a larger proportion of the total protein in a nuclear lysate than it will be in a whole-cell or whole-tissue lysate, making it possible to load more of the protein per gel lane. Another advantage is the removal of potentially cross-reactive proteins present in the unused fractions.
For this particular antibody we recommend working with nuclear extracts to optimise the results. The buffer we would use for nuclear extraction is RIPA, but alternatively you could try the following protocol for nuclear fractionation: https://www.abcam.com/index.html?pageconfig=resource&rid=11408.
We also sell sine Cell fractionation kits, which prepare cytosolic, mitochondrial and nuclear fractions in microplate format (see ab109718).
I am afraid we don’t have any further information using this antibody with different conditions, but if you are unable to prepare nuclear lysates you could always try your cellular or tissue whole cell extracts and run a positive control in parallel.
The recommended concentration for using this antibody in WB is 10ug/ml, but it is always advisable to optimise the method as it varies enormously depending on the conditions and samples used.

Thank you for contacting us.
Regarding PPAR-delta ab:
I think ab58137 (www.abcam.com/ab58137) as you suggested would be the best antibody to try as it has been tested in flow cyt and using the same secondary ab (ab96879) would be fine. However you would have to use a mouse IgG1 as a control as the primary antibody (ab58137) has the isotype IgG1. I suggest isotype control antibody, mouse IgG1 [ICIGG1] ab91353 (www.abcam.com/ab91353).
Regarding PPAR-gamma ab, we do not have any antibodies which have been tested in flow cytometry.
However, if you would be willing to test one of these antibodies and providing us with your results, whether positive or negative, I could give you a discount.
Simply follow these easy steps below to apply for our AbTrial Program:
1. Reply to this email, letting us know you are interested in testing this product.
2. Our scientists will email you an inactive personal discount code for the value of the product.
3. Purchase and test the product at the regular price.
4. Submit your results, including your discount code in the additional notes section of your Abreview.
5. Once the Abreview is submitted, the discount code will become active.

Please let me know if you have any questions about this offer and I would be happy to help you further.
The Terms and Conditions of this offer can be found at: www.abcam.com/abtrial.
If you wish to test the antibody you suggested, ab41928, you could use the same secondary antibody but you would need a mouse IgG2a as a control. I suggest ab91361 as an isotype control (www.abcam.com/ab91361).
I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
