Immunogen affinity purified
Western Blot 2.0 ug/ml
This PPAR gamma antibody is useful for Western blot, where a band is detected at ~55 kDa.
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.
Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARG), also known as nuclear receptor subfamily 1 group C member 3, NR1C3, GLM1, CIMT1, PPARG1, PPARG2, and PPARgamma, regulates adipocyte differentiation and binds peroxisome proliferators that include hypolipidemic drugs and fatty acids. PPARG regulates the peroxisomal beta-oxidation pathway of these fatty acids. PPARG activates transcription for acyl-CoA oxidase and regulates glucose homeostasis. PPARG is a member of the PPAR family, which is a subfamily of nuclear receptors. PPARG is found in the nucleus and the cytoplasm and is most prevalent in adipose tissue but also found in skeletal muscle, spleen, heart, liver, placenta, lung, and ovary. PPARG is found in three known isoforms (57.6, 54.8, and 21.6 kDa), which are produced by alternative splicing. The PPARG protein is subject to phosphorylation. PPARG has been linked to many diseases such as obesity, diabetes, atherosclerosis, and cancer. Recent research has indicated that mutations in PPARG play a role in non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (PMID: 22160635). Other research has found that using PPARG ligands as part of a chemotherapy treatment could help improve treatment for advanced pancreatic cancer (PMID: 22020928). Similar cancer research discovered that PPARG can be used to induce colorectal carcinoma cell death, making PPARG, in conjunction with survivin and caspase-3, a potential cancer cell regulator (PMID: 21765467).
