General description

Rabbit polyclonal anti-PGRMC1 antibody reacts with human membrane-associated progesterone receptor component 1.
Progesterone receptor membrane component 1/Sigma-2 receptor (PGRMC1) is a heme-binding protein involved in the activation of P450 proteins. PGRMC1 also binds plasminogen activator inhibitor RNA-binding protein-1 (PAIR-BP1). PGRMC1 is involved in the regulation of cancer cell survival or death following chemotherapy. PGRMC1-regulated gene expression is involved in progesterone inhibition of apoptosis.


Membrane-associated progesterone receptor component 1 recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)


Rabbit polyclonal anti-PGRMC1 antibody is used to tag membrane-associated progesterone receptor component 1 for detection and quantitation by immunocytochemical and immunohistochemical (IHC) techniques. It is used as a probe to determine the presence and roles of membrane-associated progesterone receptor component 1 in the regulation of cell survival and apoptosis.
Applications in which this antibody has been used successfully, and the associated peer-reviewed papers, are given below.
Immunocytochemistry (1 paper)
Western Blotting (1 paper)

Features and Benefits

Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.

Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways:
  • IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues.
  • Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.


Corresponding Antigen APREST74350.

Physical form

Solution in phosphate-buffered saline, pH 7.2, containing 40% glycerol and 0.02% sodium azide

During cholestatic liver diseases, cholangiocytes express neuroendocrine phenotypes and respond to a number of hormones and neuropeptides by paracrine and autocrine mechanisms. We examined whether the neuroendocrine hormone progesterone is produced by and targeted to cholangiocytes, thereby regulating biliary proliferation...
