Detection of ROR alpha /NR1F1 in Human PBMCs by Flow Cytometry. Human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) stimulated to induce Th17 cells were stained with Mouse Anti-Human CD4 PE‑conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # FAB3791P) and either (A) Mouse Anti-Human ROR alpha /NR1F1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB8924) or (B) Mouse IgG1 Isotype Control (Catalog # MAB002) followed by Allophycocyanin-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # F0101B). To facilitate intracellular staining, cells were fixed and permeabilized with FlowX FoxP3 Fixation & Permeabilization Buffer Kit (Catalog # FC012).

Background: ROR alpha/NR1F1
RORa (Retinoid-related Orphan Receptor alpha ) is a member of the NR1 nuclear hormone receptor family. ROR alpha is a DNA binding transcription factor, and can bind as a monomer or homodimer to hormone response elements to enhance expression. Knockout mice implicate ROR alpha as being essential in the development of the cerebellum. It has also been reported to regulate lymphocyte development and play a role in Th17 differentiation. Human ROR alpha shares 99% amino sequence identity with mouse ROR alpha.
