|Protein Name||Aryl hydrocarbon receptor|
|Molecular Weight||95017 MW|
|Protein Function||Ligand-activated transcriptional activator. Binds to the XRE promoter region of genes it activates. Activates the expression of multiple phase I and II xenobiotic chemical metabolizing enzyme genes (such as the CYP1A1 gene). Mediates biochemical and toxic effects of halogenated aromatic hydrocarbons. Involved in cell-cycle regulation. Likely to play an important role in the development and maturation of many tissues. Regulates the circadian clock by inhibiting the basal and circadian expression of the core circadian component PER1. Inhibits PER1 by repressing the CLOCK-ARNTL/BMAL1 heterodimer mediated transcriptional activation of PER1. .|
|Tissue Specificity||Expressed in all tissues tested including brain, heart, kidney, liver, lung, muscle, ovary, skin, spleen and thymus. .|
|Sequence Similarities||Contains 1 bHLH (basic helix-loop-helix) domain.|
|Subcellular Localization||Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Initially cytoplasmic; upon binding with ligand and interaction with a HSP90, it translocates to the nucleus.|
|Alternative Names||Aryl hydrocarbon receptor;Ah receptor;AhR;Ahr;|
|Research Areas|||epigenetics and nuclear signaling|nuclear signaling pathways|nfkb pathway||

1. Post-translational modification:phosphorylation, methylation, glycosylation etc. These modifications prevent SDS molecules from binding to the target protein and thus make the band size appear larger than expected
2. Post-translational cleavage: this can cause smaller bands and or multiple bands
3. Alternative splicing: the same gene can have alternative splicing patterns generating different size proteins, all with reactivities to the antibody.
4. Amino Acid R chain charge: SDS binds to positive charges. The different size and charge of the Amino Acid side chains can affect the amount of SDS binding and thus affect the observed band size.
5. Multimers: Multimers are usually broken up in reducing conditions. However if the interactions between the multimers are strong, the band may appear higher.,
