Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab5904 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
IP Use at an assay dependent concentration.
WB 1/2000. Detects a band of approximately 50 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 54 kDa).Can be blocked with Human Retinoic Acid Receptor gamma 1 peptide (ab39773).
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration.
EMSA Use 1µl for 102 cells.

Use 1-2µl. ab5904 has been shown to efficiently super shift the human RAR gamma-1/retinoid X receptor (RXR)/RAR response element complex in gel super shift experiments using a number of different response elements.


  • Function

    Receptor for retinoic acid. Retinoic acid receptors bind as heterodimers to their target response elements in response to their ligands, all-trans or 9-cis retinoic acid, and regulate gene expression in various biological processes. The RAR/RXR heterodimers bind to the retinoic acid response elements (RARE) composed of tandem 5'-AGGTCA-3' sites known as DR1-DR5. In the absence of ligand, acts mainly as an activator of gene expression due to weak binding to corepressors. Required for limb bud development. In concert with RARA or RARB, required for skeletal growth, matrix homeostasis and growth plate function.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the nuclear hormone receptor family. NR1 subfamily.
    Contains 1 nuclear receptor DNA-binding domain.
  • Domain

    Composed of three domains: a modulating N-terminal domain, a DNA-binding domain and a C-terminal ligand-binding domain.

Customer reviews and Q&As


Thank you for your enquiry.

I can confirm that ab5904 Retinoic Acid Receptor gamma 1 antibody is sold as whole antiserum.

Unpurified antibodies, such as those sold as whole antiserum, ascites or tissue culture supernatant will not have a concentration stated on the datasheet. Antibody concentration is usually determined by protein assay, and serum / ascites / tissue culture supernatant will contain a lot of other proteins, which means the antibody quantification would not be accurate.

I can confirm that for whole antiserum, concentration of antibody is known to very between 1 - 10 mg/ml.

I also would like to make you aware that ab5904 is not tested in CHIP and therefore is not covered by our guarantee for CHIP.
We wouldlike to receive feedback on how this antibody performed in your CHIP experiment.

I am sorry we are not able to provide an exact concentration on this occasion, but hope this information will be helpful to you. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
