Vitamin D3 Receptor

Catalogue number: VDR001

Units100 µl
Application Functional Inhibition
functional inhibition (azide-free solution required!)
Immunohistochemistry (paraffin)
Western Blotting

The antibody to VDR labels the nuclear receptor in a number of tissues like intestine, bone, kidney, epidermis, and endocrine cells. 1,25(OH)2-Vitamin D3, the active form of vitamin D binds to a nuclear receptor (Vitamin D receptor, VDR), which is acting as a transcription factor in calcium and bone metabolism. Many effects of vitamin D3 are due to VDR regulated transcription of certain target gens, which are involved in cell proliferation, differentiation and apoptosis. Vitamin D receptor, detects epitope aa 89-105 in human VDR.


Immunogen: Partially purified chicken vitamin D receptor

Diluted ascites containing 0.01% sodium azide

Purification Method: Diluted ascites containing 0.01% sodium azide


Species Reactivity: Mammals, birds, other vertebrates not tested

IHC(P), IP, WB, functional inhibition (azide-free solution required!)

Working Concentration: (liquid conc.) 1:500-1:1000 (IHC), 1:1000-1:2000 (WB)

Pre-Treatment: Bouin's fixative recommended. Over-fixation will destroy the epitope. For antigen unmasking citrate buffer (ref. DE000) is suitable.

Positive Control: Intestine, skin, kidney
