|Target/Specificity||Mouse anti-Human glucocorticoid receptor antibody, clone 8E9 recognizes the human glucocorticoid receptor (GR), also known as Nuclear receptor subfamily 3 group C member 1. Human GR is a 777 amino acid ~97kDa (Moraeset al.2005) member of the NR3 subfamily of nuclear hormone receptors, bearing a single nuclear receptor DNA-binding domain. Multiple isoforms of the human glucocorticoid receptor are generated by either alternative splicing or alternative initiation (UniProt:: P04150).In the absence of bound ligand GRs are located in the cytoplasm and are translocated to the nucleus or mitochondrion following ligation (Rossiniet al.1984). GRs are associated with heat shock proteins in the cytoplasm when ligated to steroid hormone, being disrupted on translocation of the steroid:receptor complex to the nucleus (Tseet al.2011). Mouse anti-Human glucocorticoid receptor antibody, clone 8E9 was raised against a conserved region of the glucocorticoid receptor and recognizes human GR, binding to an epitope between amino acids 167-176 and is therefore expected to bind all described isoforms of the human glucocorticoid receptor.Mouse anti-Human glucocorticoid receptor antibody, clone 8E9 has been used successfully for the identification of human glucocorticoid receptor using flow cytometry (Berkiet al.1998), western blotting (Moraeset al.2005) and immunoprecipitation where it has also been shown to bind to the murine GR (Paul-Clarket al.2003,Bartiset al.2007).|
