The androgen receptor (AR) is an ~110 kDa androgen-dependent transcription factor that is a member of the steroid/nuclear receptor gene superfamily.  The AR signaling pathway plays a key role in development and function of male reproductive organs, including the prostate and epididymis. AR also plays a role in nonreproductive organs, such as muscle, hair follicles, and brain.  Abnormalities in the AR signaling pathway have been linked to a number of diseases, including prostate cancer, Kennedy's disease and male infertility.   The PI3K/Akt signaling pathway plays an important role in regulating AR activity through phosphorylation of AR at Ser213/210 and Ser791/790.  Growth factors or cytokines may induce phosphorylation of AR through the PI3K/Akt pathway.  IGF-1 activates the  phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase(PI3K)/AKT pathway in LNCap at high passage number and increases phosphorylation of of  AR at Ser213/210 (can be detected using IMGENEX Cat #IMG-561) and Ser791/790 (1).  Activation of the PI3K/AKt pathway is thought to have a survival role in prostate cancer by protecting cells from apoptosis.

Peptide with sequence EVQLGLGRVYPRPPSC, from N Terminus of the protein sequence according to NP_000035.

Application Notes
An ~95 kDa band is observed in human brain and heart  lysates (calculated MW of 99 kDa according to NP_000035).

Androgen Receptor Antibody

Staining of 35 µg of human brain lysate using IMG-3238 at 0.3 µg/ml.  Primary incubation was 1 hour.  Detected by chemiluminescence.
