WB: Approx. 110 kDa band observed in human skeletal muscle lysates (calculated MW of 91.0 kDa band according to NP_037393.1). IHC-P usage is reported in scientifc literature (PMID: 23763823).
91 kDa. Disclaimer note: The observed molecular weight of the protein may vary from the listed predicted molecular weight due to post translational modifications, post translation cleavages, relative charges, and other experimental factors.
The protein encoded by this gene is a transcriptional coactivator that regulates the genes involved in energy metabolism. This protein interacts with PPARgamma, which permits the interaction of this protein with multiple transcription factors. This protein can interact with, and regulate the activities of, cAMP response element binding protein (CREB) and nuclear respiratory factors (NRFs). It provides a direct link between external physiological stimuli and the regulation of mitochondrial biogenesis, and is a major factor that regulates muscle fiber type determination. This protein may be also involved in controlling blood pressure, regulating cellular cholesterol homoeostasis, and the development of obesity.

FAQs for PGC1 alpha Antibody (NB100-60955). (Showing 1 - 2 of 2 FAQs).
Please differentiate me between PPAR and PGC clearly.i am confuse to know the differ these two. waiting for your reply
Thank you very much for contacting Novus Biologicals technical support team and sharing your query on the differences between PGC-1 alpha and PPAR. These are two different proteins encoded by their respective genes and serves different functions. PGC-1 alpha (PGC1A or PPAR gamma coactivator 1-alpha) is a transcriptional co-activator for steroid receptors and nuclear receptors, and it regulates diverse aspects of cellular physiology. It up-regulates the transcriptional activity of PPAR-gamma /thyroid hormone receptor on the uncoupling protein promoter; regulates the key mitochondrial genes involved in adaptive thermogenesis; implicates in the metabolic reprogramming in response to nutrients availability through the coordination of the expression of a wide array of genes involved in the regulation of glucose and fatty acid metabolism. Among our PGC-1 alpha antibodies, NBP1-04676 is our best selling product with nice customer feedback and citations in at least 13 research publications. PPAR (PPAR alpha) on the other hand is a ligand-activated transcription factor which gets activated by the endogenous ligand 1-palmitoyl-2-oleoyl-sn-glycerol-3-phosphocholine, and oleylethanolamide (a naturally occurring lipid that regulates satiety), and acts as a key regulator of lipid metabolism. It also acts as a receptor for peroxisome proliferators such as hypolipidemic drugs and fatty acids. It regulates the peroxisomal beta-oxidation pathway of fatty acids, and also functions as transcription activator for the ACOX1 and P450 genes. We have a variety of PPAR alpha antibodies. I hope you will find this information helpful but please let me know if I can support you with anything else from my end. Thank you very much for choosing Novus Biologicals as your quality reagent supplier and we wish you the best with your research projects.
My question is whether the antibody (anti-PGC) detects the phosphorylated PGC protein? Or if it just detects the total PGC protein?
NB100-60955 is not specific for a particular phosphorylated form of PGC-1 alpha. This protein is only phosphorylated on two residues but has 13 known acetylation sites, which is why the protein is detected at around 100 kDa instead of the predicted 91 kDa. This antibody should detect the unphosphorylated and unacetylated form as well, if they are present in your sample.
