Estrogen Receptor α
Reacts with estrogen receptor alpha.
The antibody strongly labels the nuclei of cells known to contain a high level of estrogen receptor, e.g. epithelial and myometrial cells of the uterus, and normal, hyperplastic and neoplastic cells of the mammary gland. A number of publications has confirmed the usefulness of the Dako antibody.

For in vitro diagnostic use.
FLEX Monoclonal Mouse Anti- Human Estrogen Receptor α, Clone 1D5, Ready-to-Use (Link), is intended for use in immunohistochemistry together with Autostainer Link instruments. The antibody labels estrogen receptor α-positive cells and is useful in the assessment of estrogen receptor status in human breast carcinomas (1-3). The clinical interpretation of any staining or its absence should be complemented by morphological studies using proper controls and should be evaluated within the context of the patient's clinical history and other diagnostic tests by a qualified pathologist.
Soluble recombinant human estrogen receptor (7).
The antibody specifically reacts with ERα and shows no reaction with ERβ (8, 9). The epitope is located in the N-terminal domain (A/B region) of ERα. In Western immunoblotting using protein extracts from COS cells transfected with a plasmid vector expressing ER, the human breast cancer cell line MCF-7, and human endometrial tissue, the antibody labels a polypeptide of approximately 67 kDa corresponding to ER. No labeling of COS cells transfected with plasmid containing a deleted mutant with missing sequences encoding for the A/B region of ER was observed (7).
As demonstrated by immunohistochemistry, the antibody reacts with the ERα-equivalent protein in rat (8).
Ready-to-use monoclonal mouse antibody provided in liquid form in a buffer containing stabilizing protein and 0.015 mol/L sodium azide.
Clone: 1D5 (7). Isotype: IgG1, kappa.
