Reproducibility is key to advancing scientific discovery and accelerating scientists’ next breakthrough.
Abcam is leading the way with our range of recombinant antibodies, knockout-validated antibodies and knockout cell lines, all of which support improved reproducibility.
We are also planning to innovate the way in which we present recommended applications and species on our product datasheets, so that only applications & species that have been tested in our own labs, our suppliers or by selected trusted collaborators are covered by our Abpromise™ guarantee.
In preparation for this, we have started to update the applications & species that this product is Abpromise guaranteed for.
We are also updating the applications & species that this product has been “predicted to work with,” however this information is not covered by our Abpromise guarantee.
Applications & species from publications and Abreviews that have not been tested in our own labs or in those of our suppliers are not covered by the Abpromise guarantee.

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab65815 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|WB||Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 55 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 52 kDa).|
|IHC-P||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
FunctionTranscriptional activator. Seems to be essential for sexual differentiation and formation of the primary steroidogenic tissues. Binds to the Ad4 site found in the promoter region of steroidogenic P450 genes such as CYP11A, CYP11B and CYP21B. Also regulates the AMH/Muellerian inhibiting substance gene as well as the AHCH and STAR genes. 5'-YCAAGGYC-3' and 5'-RRAGGTCA-3' are the consensus sequences for the recognition by NR5A1. The SFPQ-NONO-NR5A1 complex binds to the CYP17 promoter and regulates basal and cAMP-dependent transcriptional avtivity. Binds phosphatidylcholine (By similarity). Binds phospholipids with a phosphatidylinositol (PI) headgroup, in particular PI(3,4)P2 and PI(3,4,5)P3.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in NR5A1 are a cause of 46,XY disorder of sex development (46,XY DSD) [MIM:612965]; also known as XY sex reversal with or without adrenal failure. A congenital condition in which development of chromosomal, gonadal, or antomic sex is atypical. 46,XY DSD is a disorder of gonadal (testicular) development, which may be complete or partial. The complete form includes streak gonads, normal mullerian structures, and normal female external genitalia. The partial form includes ambiguous external genitalia and partial development of mullerian and wolffian structures.
Defects in NR5A1 are a cause of adrenocortical insufficiency without ovarian defect (ACIWOD) [MIM:184757]. ACIWOD is characterized by severe 'slackness' muscular hypotonia. There is decreased sodium, increased potassium and elevated ACTH.
Defects in NR5A1 are the cause of premature ovarian failure type 7 (POF7) [MIM:612964]. An ovarian disorder defined as the cessation of ovarian function under the age of 40 years. It is characterized by oligomenorrhea or amenorrhea, in the presence of elevated levels of serum gonadotropins and low estradiol.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the nuclear hormone receptor family. NR5 subfamily.
Contains 1 nuclear receptor DNA-binding domain.
modificationsAcetylation stimulates the transcriptional activity.

Predicted band size: 52 kDa
Observed band size: 55 kDa why is the actual band size different from the predicted?
Additional bands at: 30 kDa (possible non-specific binding), 70 kDa (possible non-specific binding)
Exposure time: 16 minutes
Steroidogenic Factor 1/SF-1 contains a potential phosphorylation site, as well as a number of acetylation sites(SwissProt), which may explain its migration at a higher molecular weight than predicted. The 55 kDa band observed is comparable to the molecular weight seen with other commercially available antibodies to this target.
