Product Pathways - Nuclear Receptor Signaling
Androgen Receptor (D6F11) XP® Rabbit mAb (Alexa Fluor® 594 Conjugate) #8938
Reactivity Key: H=Human
Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot. Species enclosed in parentheses are predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology.
Specificity / Sensitivity
Androgen Receptor (D6F11) XP® Rabbit mAb (Alexa Fluor® 594 Conjugate) detects endogenous levels of total androgen receptor protein.
Source / Purification
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with recombinant protein corresponding to residues near the amino terminal region of human androgen receptor protein.
This Cell Signaling Technology antibody is conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 594 fluorescent dye and tested in-house for direct immunofluorescent analysis in human cells. The antibody is expected to exhibit the same species cross-reactivity as the unconjugated Androgen Receptor (D6F11) XP® Rabbit mAb #5153.
Androgen receptor (AR), a zinc finger transcription factor belonging to the nuclear receptor superfamily, is activated by phosphorylation and dimerization upon ligand binding (1). This promotes nuclear localization and binding of AR to androgen response elements in androgen target genes. Research studies have shown that AR plays a crucial role in several stages of male development and the progression of prostate cancer (2,3).
