Antigen/Purification: ExpandCollapse

The antigen is a peptide corresponding to amino acid residues from the N-terminal region of human thyroid hormone receptor, α12-isotype.

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

Biological Significance: ExpandCollapse

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).
