Technical Data
Estrogen-Related Receptor, alpha (ERRa, NR3B1, NR3 Steroid Receptor)
Estrogen-related receptor alpha is a nuclear receptor protein related to the Estrogen receptor. It is reported to interact with estrogen and similar steroids and functions as a transcriptional activator. In mouse, ERR alpha is expressed in many adult and embryonic tissues (particularly at the onset of ossification) as well as in several osteoblast cell lines. ERR alpha expression has been documented in mouse in brain, spinal cord, pituitary gland, heart, intestine, bone, brown adipose tissue, heart, uterus, cervix, nerve, skeletal muscle, and vagina. ESTs have been isolated from human tissue libraries, including cancerous blood, brain, breast, cervix, colon, duodenum, eye, head/neck, kidney, liver, lung, ovary, pancreas, skeletal muscle, skin, stomach, and uterus, and normal adrenal, blood, brain, colon, embryo, eye, head/neck, heart, kidney, prostate, skeletal muscle, testis, and uterus.

Suitable for use in Immunohistochemistry, Western Blot, Immunoprecipitation, Electrophoretic Mobility Shift Assay. Other applications not tested.
