Nuclear hormone receptor. The steroid hormones and their receptors are involved in the regulation of eukaryotic gene expression and affect cellular proliferation and differentiation in target tissues. Can activate the transcriptional activity of TFF1.
Belongs to the nuclear hormone receptor family. NR3 subfamily. Contains 1 nuclear receptor DNA-binding domain.
Composed of three domains: a modulating N-terminal domain, a DNA-binding domain and a C-terminal ligand-binding domain.
Phosphorylated by cyclin A/CDK2. Phosphorylation probably enhances transcriptional activity. Glycosylated; contains N-acetylglucosamine, probably O-linked. Ubiquitinated. Deubiquitinated by OTUB1. Dimethylated by PRMT1 at Arg-260. The methylation may favor cytoplasmic localization. Palmitoylated (isoform 3). Not biotinylated (isoform 3).
Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Cell membrane. A minor fraction is associated with the inner membrane and Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Cell membrane. Associated with the inner membrane via palmitoylation.
Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) analysis of human breast tissue labelling Estrogen Receptor alpha with purified ab108398 at 1/250. Heat mediated antigen retrieval was performed using Tris/EDTA buffer pH 9. A prediluted HRP-polymer conjugated anti-rabbit IgG was used as the secondary antibody. Counterstained with Hematoxylin.
Immunocytochemsitry/Immunofluorescence analysis of MCF-7 cells labelling Estrogen Receptor alpha (green) with purified ab108398 at 1/200. Cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde. An Alexa Fluor® 488-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG (1/200) was used as the secondary antibody. Counterstained with DAPI (blue).
ab108398 staining Estrogen Receptor alpha in the human cell line MCF-7(human breast carcinoma) by flow cytometry. Cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde, permeabilized with 90% methanol and the sample was incubated with the primary antibody at a dilution of 1/20. A goat anti rabbit IgG (Alexa Fluor® 488) at a dilution of 1/2000 was used as the secondary antibody.
Isoytype control: Rabbit monoclonal IgG (Black)
Unlabelled control: Cell without incubation with primary antibody and secondary antibody (Blue)

ChIP analysis using unpurified ab108398 binding Estrogen Receptor alpha in MCF7 cells derived from Human breast carcinoma. Cells were cross-linked for 10 minutes with 1% formaldehyde. Samples were incubated with undiluted primary antibody for 16 hours at 4°C. Protein binding was detected using real-time PCR. Positive control: Estrogen treated MCF7 cells tested at PS2 promoter. Negative Control:IgG ChIP and ethanol-depleted cells tested at PS2 promoter.
