General description

Androgens are the male sex hormones that exert biological and transcriptional effects on binding to nuclear androgen receptor (AR). Androgens in humans include androstenedione, testosterone, dihydrotestosterone and dehydroepiandrosterone. Androgen receptor is a ligand inducible nuclear receptor, expressed on brain, bone, skeletal muscles, genital organs, hair follicles and cardiovascular tissue. On binding androgen, the AR is internalized and modulates the transcriptional of target genes. Additionally, AR also exerts extra-nuclear actions wherein it rapidly induces signalling cascades of MAPK and protein kinase C. The regulation by AR results in irreversible sexual differentiation of sex organs during embryogenesis and development of sex-specific characteristics during puberty
Anti-Androgen Receptor specifically recognizes the human androgen receptor protein (110 kDa). An additional band may be observed at 45 kDa. The antibody cross-reacts with rat androgen receptor.

Specificity

The antibody cross-reacts with androgen receptor from rat.

Immunogen

evolutionally conserved peptide corresponding to amino acids 1-21 of the human androgen receptor. This sequence is not found in estrogen, progesterone, or glucocorticoid receptors.

Application

Anti-androgen receptor antibody may be used for immunoblotting using whole rat brain extract at a recommended concentration of 1-2 μg/ml. For immunoprecipitaion from 250 μg of human MCF7 cell lysate, a concentration of 5-10 μg may be used. Immunohistochemistry may be performed on paraffin-embedded human prostate tissue sections at a working antibody concentration of 20-40 μg/ml.
Applications in which this antibody has been used successfully, and the associated peer-reviewed papers, are given below.
Western Blotting (1 paper)
Rabbit anti-androgen receptor (C19) was used in a EMSA (electrophoretic mobility shift assay) which produced a supershift in the molecular weight of a particular DNA sequence indicating binding of the androgen receptor.

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 15 mM sodium azide.
