Human Growth Hormone R/GHR Antibody Summary

Species Reactivity
Detects human Growth Hormone R/GHR in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs, less than 15% cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse GHR and recombinant rat GHR is observed.
Polyclonal Goat IgG
Antigen Affinity-purified
Mouse myeloma cell line NS0-derived recombinant human Growth Hormone R/GHR
Accession # P10912
Lyophilized from a 0.2 μm filtered solution in PBS with Trehalose. *Small pack size (SP) is supplied either lyophilized or as a 0.2 µm filtered solution in PBS.
Endotoxin Level
<0.10 EU per 1 μg of the antibody by the LAL method.


Recommended Concentration
Western Blot
0.1 µg/mL
Recombinant Human Growth Hormone R/GHR Fc Chimera (Catalog # 1210-GR)
Flow Cytometry
0.25 µg/106 cells
Human whole blood CD19+ B cells
5-15 µg/mL
Immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human breast cancer tissue
Ready to be labeled using established conjugation methods. No BSA or other carrier proteins that could interfere with conjugation.
Measured by its ability to neutralize Growth Hormone R/GHR-mediated inhibition of proliferation in the Nb2‑11 rat lymphoma cell line. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 0.125-0.5 µg/mL in the presence of 10 ng/mL Recombinant Human Growth Hormone R/GHR Fc Chimera and 0.2 ng/mL Recombinant Human Growth Hormone.

Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.

Growth Hormone R/GHR Inhibition of Growth Hormone-dependent Cell Proliferation and Neutralization by Human Growth Hormone R/GHR Antibody. Recombinant Human Growth Hormone R/GHR Fc Chimera (Catalog # 1210-GR) inhibits Recombinant Human Growth Hormone (Catalog # 1067-GH) induced proliferation in the Nb2-11 rat lymphoma cell line in a dose-dependent manner (orange line). Inhibition of Recombinant Human Growth Hormone (0.2 ng/mL) activity elicited by Recombinant Human Growth Hormone R/GHR Fc Chimera (10 ng/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Goat Anti-Human Growth Hormone R/GHR Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1210). The ND50 is typically 0.125-0.5 µg/mL.

Background: Growth Hormone R/GHR

Growth hormone (GH), also known as somatotropin, is a member of a family of growth factors that includes prolactin, placental lactogens, proliferins and somatolactin (1, 2). It is synthesized primarily by somatotropes in the anterior pituitary and is released as an endocrine hormone. Other cells and tissues, including lymphoid tissues, can also produce GH (3). GH is a pleiotropic molecule which can act directly or indirectly via IGF-I, to regulate growth and metabolism as well as enhance T cell survival and thymic functions (1, 2, 4). GH exerts its biological actions by binding to the GH receptor (GHR) that is present in many cell types (1, 2). Human GHR cDNA encodes a 638 amino acid (aa) residue type I transmembrane protein with an 18 aa putative signal peptide, a 246 aa extracellular domain, a 24 aa transmembrane domain and a 350 aa cytoplasmic domain (5). At least two alternatively spliced isoforms of human GHR, lacking the sequence encoded by exon 3, or lacking most of the cytoplasmic domain, also exist (6, 7). Soluble GH-binding proteins corresponding to extracellular domain of the transmembrane proteins can be generated from the membrane proteins (8). Ligation of GHR by GH has been shown to result in receptor dimerization and activation of the JAK/STAT signaling cascade (9). The soluble GHBP has been shown to interfere with GH signaling by competing with the transmembrane receptor of GH. Alternatively, the GHBP has also been shown to enhance GH action by slowing GH clearance (8, 10).
