Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
SRA, SRA1, STRAA1, Steroid Receptor RNA Activator 1, pp7684
Steroid receptor RNA activator (SRA) selectively mediates transactivation of steroid hormone receptors. Specifically, SRA exists as both an RNA transcript that forms a complex with steroid receptor coactivator-1 and as a stably expressed protein. There are six RNA motifs in SRA that are important for coactivation. SRA is ubiquitously expressed in normal tissues with higher levels of expression in liver and skeletal muscle. SRA is expressed at a low level in brain. SRA is expressed at higher levels in breast tumor than in normal tissue. Overexpression of SRA stimulates ERalpha transcriptional activity. In cells transfected with antisense oligodeoxynucleotides to SRA, ERα expression is reduced in a dose-dependent fashion. SMRT/HDAC1 associated repressor protein (SHARP) binds to SRA and inhibits SRA-potentiated steroid receptor transciption.

Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µl affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 30% glycerol, 1% BSA and 0.02% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blotting (1:500 – 1:2500). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. HeLa cell lysate can be used as a positive control.The antibody recognizes the SRA of human origin. Reactivity to other species has not been tested.
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
How to handle this antibody:
The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by Biovision they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
