RARB Antibody (Center)

Peptide Affinity Purified Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody (Pab)

  • WB - RARB Antibody (Center) AP18153C
    RARB Antibody (Center) (Cat. #AP18153c) western blot analysis in K562 cell line lysates (35ug/lane).This demonstrates the RARB antibody detected the RARB protein (arrow).
  • IF - RARB Antibody (Center) AP18153C
    Fluorescent confocal image of Hela cell stained with RARB Antibody (Center)(Cat#AP18153c). Hela cells were fixed with 4% PFA (20 min), permeabilized with Triton X-100 (0.1%, 10 min), then incubated with RARB primary antibody (1:25, 1 h at 37℃). For secondary antibody, Alexa Fluor® 488 conjugated donkey anti-rabbit antibody (green) was used (1:400, 50 min at 37℃).Cytoplasmic actin was counterstained with Alexa Fluor® 555 (red) conjugated Phalloidin (7units/ml, 1 h at 37℃). Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI (blue) (10 µg/ml, 10 min). RARB immunoreactivity is localized to nucleus significantly.

Protein Information
Synonyms HAP, NR1B2
Function Receptor for retinoic acid. Retinoic acid receptors bind as heterodimers to their target response elements in response to their ligands, all-trans or 9-cis retinoic acid, and regulate gene expression in various biological processes. The RXR/RAR heterodimers bind to the retinoic acid response elements (RARE) composed of tandem 5'-AGGTCA-3' sites known as DR1-DR5. In the absence or presence of hormone ligand, acts mainly as an activator of gene expression due to weak binding to corepressors. In concert with RARG, required for skeletal growth, matrix homeostasis and growth plate function.
Cellular Location Isoform Beta-1: Nucleus. Isoform Beta-4: Cytoplasm.

This gene encodes retinoic acid receptor beta, a member of the thyroid-steroid hormone receptor superfamily of nuclear transcriptional regulators. This receptor localizes to the cytoplasm and to subnuclear compartments. It binds retinoic acid, the biologically active form of vitamin A which mediates cellular signalling in embryonic morphogenesis, cell growth and differentiation. It is thought that this protein limits growth of many cell types by regulating gene expression. The gene was first identified in a hepatocellular carcinoma where it flanks a hepatitis B virus integration site. The gene expresses at least two transcript variants; one additional transcript has been described, but its full length nature has not been determined. [provided by RefSeq].
