Glucocorticoid Receptor antibody | 8E9
In the absence of bound ligand GRs are located in the cytoplasm and are translocated to the nucleus or mitochondrion following ligation (Rossini et 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 (Tse et 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 (Berki et al. 1998), western blotting (Moraes et al. 2005) and immunoprecipitation where it has also been shown to bind to the murine GR (Paul-Clark et al. 2003, Bartis et al. 2007).
