Affinity Purified anti-PPAR alpha (N -terminal specific) (Rabbit) is shown to detect a 52 kDa band corresponding to PPAR alpha present in a 3T3 whole cell lysate. Approximately 20 g of lysate was loaded per lane for SDS-PAGE.  Detection occurred after using a 1:500 (lane 1) or 1:1000 (lane 2) dilution of antibody followed by 1:2000 dilution of HRP Goat-a-Rabbit IgG for visualization.
Immunohistochemistry using Rockland's anti-PPAR antibody, showing staining of PPAR alpha in rat brain sections, highlighting cytoplasmic staining in ependymal cells and neurons in frontal cortex. Bottom image shows subventricular zone (svz) of lateral ventrical (exit point of progenitor olfactory neurones); top image shows frontal cortex in the same section. Cytoplasmic staining is also observed in the corpus callosum (bottom image) and in dendritic fields of the cortex. Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections of rat brain tissue were incubated with the primary antibody at 1:200 for 1 hour.  Antigen retrieval was performed by heat induction in citrate buffer pH 6.0.

PPAR alpha Antibody Description

Since their discovery in the early 1990's, the peroxisome proliferator activated receptors (PPARs) have attracted significant attention. This is primarily because PPARs serve as receptors for two very important classes of drugs: the hypolipidemic fibrates and the insulin sensitizing thiazolidinediones.  Peroxisome proliferators are non-genotoxic carcinogens that are purported to exert their effect on cells through their interaction with members of the nuclear hormone receptor family termed PPARs. Nuclear hormone receptors are ligand-dependent intracellular proteins that stimulate transcription of specific genes by binding to specific DNA sequences following activation by the appropriate ligand. Upon binding fatty acids or hypolipidemic drugs, PPARs form heterodimers with retinoid X receptors (RXRs) and these heterodimers regulate the expression of target genes. There are 3 known subtypes of PPARs: PPAR-alpha, PPAR-delta and PPAR-gamma.  Mostly target genes are involved in the catabolism of fatty acids. Conversely, PPAR-gamma is activated by peroxisome proliferators such as prostaglandins, leukotrienes and Anti diabetic thiazolidinediones and affects the expression of genes involved in the storage of the fatty acids. PPAR-gamma may also be involved in adipocyte differentiation. It has also been shown that PPARs can induce transcription of acyl coenzyme A oxidase and cytochrome P450 through interaction with specific response elements.
PPAR alpha Antibody was prepared from whole rabbit serum produced by repeated immunizations with a synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 1 to 18 of mouse PPAR alpha.
Immunogen Type
Storage Condition
Store vial at -20° C prior to opening. Aliquot contents and freeze at -20° C or below for extended storage. Avoid cycles of freezing and thawing. Centrifuge product if not completely clear after standing at room temperature. This product is stable for several weeks at 4° C as an undiluted liquid. Dilute only prior to immediate use.
Application Note
Affinity purified PPAR alpha Antibody has been tested for use in ELISA and by western blot.  Expect a single band approximately 52 kDa in size corresponding to PPAR alpha by western blot in the appropriate tissue or cell lysate. A 1:200 dilution is suggested for Immunohistochemistry. Specific conditions for reactivity should be optimized by the end user.
Anti-PPAR alpha Antibody is directed against mouse PPAR alpha protein.  The product was affinity purified from monospecific antiserum by immunoaffinity purification.  A BLAST analysis was used to suggest reactivity with this protein from mouse, rat, bovine, dog, golden hamster and boar sources based on 100% homology for the immunogen sequence. Cross reactivity with PPAR alpha protein from human, chimpanzee and rhesus monkey may also occur as this sequence shows 88% homology (16/18 identities) with the protein from these sources. Cross reactivity with PPAR alpha homologues from other sources has not been determined.  No reactivity is expected against other subtypes of PPAR.
