Our Anti-Thyroid Hormone Receptor, α1/α2-Isotype primary antibody from PhosphoSolutions is mouse monoclonal. It detects human and rat Thyroid Hormone Receptor, α1/α2-Isotype and is Protein G purified. It is great for use in WB.
Thyroid hormones are essential for development of the central nervous system and deficits in these hormones during development affects such cognitive functions as learning and memory (Ambrogini et al., 2005; Chan and Kilby, 2000). Thyroid hormones exert their physiological role mainly through binding to specific nuclear receptors including the predominant isoforms of thyroid hormone receptors TRα1, TRα2, TRβ1 and TRβ2. TRα1, TRβ1 and TRβ2 bind T3 with high affinity and also bind to thyroid hormone response elements (TREs) on chromatin to regulate the transcriptional processes in several target tissues, including adult rat brain (Constantinou et al., 2005).
Protein G Purified
Synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acid residues from the N-terminal region of human thyroid hormone receptor, α1/α2-isotype, conjugated to keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH).
Storage at -20°C is recommended, as aliquots may be taken without freeze/thawing due to presence of 50% glycerol. Stable for at least 1 year at -20°C.
Protein G purified culture supernatent.
10 mM HEPES (pH 7.5), 150 mM NaCl, 100 µg per ml BSA and 50% glycerol.
