Androgen R/NR3C4 in Human Prostate. Androgen R/NR3C4 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human prostate using Mouse Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat Androgen R/NR3C4 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB58761) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. 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 the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm of glandular epithelial cells. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections.

Background: Androgen R/NR3C4
The Androgen Receptor (AR) is a 90 kDa steroid hormone receptor that is critical for the development and function of the male reproductive system. AR binding to testosterone or 5 alpha -dihydrotestosterone (DHT) triggers receptor dimerization followed by translocation to the nucleus where it promotes transcription of androgen responsive genes. Multiple polymorphisms in AR are linked to the development of prostate cancer. The ligand binding domain of human AR (aa 661-920) shares 100% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat AR.
