ER alpha /NR3A1 in T47D and WM-115 Human Cell Lines. ERa/NR3A1 was detected in immersion fixed T47D human breast cancer cell line (positive stain) and WM-115 human malignant melanoma cell line (negative stain) using Rabbit Anti-Human ERa/NR3A1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB57153) at 3 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Rabbit IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL004) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cell nuclei. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Cells on Coverslips.
ER alpha /NR3A1 in Human Breast Cancer Tissue. ERa/NR3A1 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human breast cancer tissue using Rabbit Anti-Human ERa/NR3A1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB57153) at 10 µg/mL for 1 hour at room temperature followed by incubation with the Anti-Rabbit IgG VisUCyte™ HRP Polymer Antibody (Catalog # VC003). Before incubation with the primary antibody, tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # CTS013). Tissue was stained using DAB (brown) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to cell nuclei.

Background: ER alpha/NR3A1
ER alpha (Estrogen receptor alpha; also Estradiol receptor and NR3A1) is a 65-70 kDa member of the NR3 subfamily, nuclear hormone receptor family of proteins. It is widely expressed, and serves as a strong activator of estrogen-responsive genes. ER alpha is normally quiescent and bound to heat-shock proteins and immunophilins. Following beta -estradiol binding, it becomes activated, either homodimerizes or heterodimerizes with ER beta, and binds to DNA with multiple coactivators. Human ER alpha is 595 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains a DNA binding region (aa 185-250), three NLSs (aa 256-260; 266-271; 299-303), a steroid-binding site (aa 351-543), a dimerization motif (aa 497-518), and an O-GlcNAc attachment around Thr575. Major phosphorylation sites exist at Tyr537, Ser167 and Ser118. Multiple splice forms exist. There is an 80 kDa isoform that shows a substitution (duplication) of aa 412-517 for Asp411, a second isoform with a deletion of aa 255-366, a third isoform with a deletion of aa 152-412, and a fourth isoform that shows a Thr substitution for aa 152-595. Human ER alpha is only 46% aa identical to human ER beta. Over aa 1-116, human ER alpha shares 85% aa identity with mouse ER alpha.
