Description

Antigen: human PGC-1α amino acids 75-90 (NIFEKIDEENEANLLA) · Host: rabbit · Application(s): WB and IHC (paraffin-embedded tissue sections); other applications not tested · Three peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ coactivator 1 (PGC-1) isoforms have been characterized - PGC-1α, PGC-1β, and PGC-1-related coactivator (PRC). PGC-1α and PGC-1β are products of two distinct genes with protein sequences sharing high homology at both the N- and C-terminus.1 PGC-1α is a tissue-specific and inducible transcriptional coactivator for several nuclear receptors and plays a key role in energy metabolism, hepatic gluconeogenesis, and cholesterol homoeostasis.2 PGC-1β is also thought to activate oxidative metabolism in tissues, although it does so through a relatively restricted set of transcriptional partners compared to PGC-1α. PGC-1α is most abundant in kidney and heart whereas PGC-1β is primarily expressed in heart, brown adipose, and skeletal muscle.3,4 Changes in PGC-1α levels may play a role in metabolic disorders such as type II diabetes and obesity5 Human PGC-1α is 798 amino acids in length with a calculated molecular weight of 91 kDa. Cayman’s PGC-1 polyclonal antibody detects the protein at around 96 kDa in murine kidney and liver samples. In human liver microsomes and HEK293 cells, both PGC-1α and PGC-1β are detected.
