Western blot analysis of AHR over-expressed 293 cell line, cotransfected with AHR Validated Chimera RNAi ( Cat # H00000196-R01V ) (Lane 2) or non-transfected control (Lane 1). Blot probed with AHR monoclonal antibody (M02), clone 3B12 (Cat # H00000196-M02 ). GAPDH ( 36.1 kDa ) used as specificity and loading control.
This gene encodes a ligand-activated transcription factor involved in the regulation of biological responses to planar aromatic hydrocarbons. This receptor has been shown to regulate xenobiotic-metabolizing enzymes such as cytochrome P450. Its ligands included a variety of aromatic hydrocarbons. [provided by RefSeq
