Estrogen Receptor Alpha antibody
Encoded by the ESR1 gene, estrogen receptor alpha is a ligand-activated transcription factor composed of several domains important for hormone binding, DNA binding, and activation of transcription. The protein localizes to the nucleus where it may form a homodimer or a heterodimer with estrogen receptor 2. Estrogen and its receptors are essential for sexual development and reproductive function, but also play a role in other tissues such as bone. Estrogen receptors are also involved in pathological processes including breast cancer, endometrial cancer, and osteoporosis. Alternative splicing results in several transcript variants, which differ in their 5' UTRs and use different promoters (provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008).
Mouse anti Human estrogen receptor alpha antibody detects a band of 66 kDa. The antibody has been extensively validated for western blotting using whole cell lysates.
