Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab60134 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
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.
ChIP Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 23922987
WB Use a concentration of 1.25 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 68 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 63 kDa). Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
IHC-P Use a concentration of 4 - 8 µg/ml.
ELISA Use at an assay dependent concentration.


  • Function

    Orphan nuclear receptor. Binds DNA as a monomer to hormone response elements (HRE) containing a single core motif half-site preceded by a short A-T-rich sequence. This isomer binds to the consensus sequence 5'-[AT][TA]A[AT][CGT]TAGGTCA-3'. Regulates a number of genes involved in lipid metabolism such as apolipoproteins AI, APOA5, CIII, CYP71 and PPARgamma, in cerebellum and photoreceptor development including PCP2, OPN1SW, OPN1SM AND ARR3, in circadian rhythm with BMAL1, and skeletal muscle development with MYOD1. Possible receptor for cholesterol or one of its derivatives.
  • Tissue specificity

    Widely expressed in a number of tissues.
  • Sequence similarities

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

    Phosphorylation by PKC in neurons inhibits transcriptional activity. Phosphorylated on Thr-216 by ERK2 in vitro.
    Sumoylated by SENP1 and SENP2. Sumoylation, promoted by PIAS2, PIAS3, PIASy but not PIAS1, enhances the transcriptional activity. Desumoylated by SENP1.
    Ubiquitinated. Ubiquitination is required for efficient transcriptional activity and is prevented by Hairless.

  • ICC/IF image of ab60134 stained HepG2 cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab60134, 1µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.

Thank you for your inquiry.

We offer normal tissue brain slides from mouse for the use in IHC-P. I recommend to have a look at the following product and if it might be suitable for you.


For the human kidney staining a concentration of 4-8µg/ml of the Anti-ROR alpha antibody was used.

Please note, that this concentration may need to be optimised for different samples and different conditions.

The secondary antibody ( a biotinylated goat anti-rabbit IgG) was used in a 1:200 dilution for 20min at 37C. After rinsing, the sections are incubated with streptavidin-HRP at 1:200 under the same conditions.

For the blocking 10% normal goat serum in PBS was used at RT for 30min.

I hope this information is helpful for you. Please do not hesitate to come back to me if you have any further questions.
