PhosphoSolutions Cat# 1340-RXRB, RRID:AB_2492229
Antigen/Purification: ExpandCollapse

The antigen is a  peptide corresponding to amino acids from N-terminal region of human retinoic acid receptor, β-isotype. The antigen is identical in both β1 and β2 isoforms.

The antibody is prepared from tissue culture supernatant by ammonium sulfate precipitation followed by purification on a Protein G column.

Biological Significance: ExpandCollapse

Retinoic Acid (RA; active metabolite of vitamin A) plays a prominent role in regulating the transition of proliferating precursor cells (such as carcinoma cells and neuronal precursors) to postmitotic differentiated cells (Joshi et al., 2005). The Retinoid X receptors (RXRs) family (RXRα, β and γ) preferentially bind 9-cis-RA and regulate gene transcription by forming heterodimers with a second family of RA receptors (RARs). RAs have been suggested to potentially play a therapeutic role in cervical cancer (Abu et al., 2005). RAs are known to play key roles in neuronal development and an increasing body of evidence indicates that retinoid signaling may regulate synaptic plasticity and associated learning and memory behaviors (Lane and Bailey, 2005).
