CALR

Calreticulin is a multifunctional protein that acts as a major Ca(2+)-binding (storage) protein in the lumen of the endoplasmic reticulum. It is also found in the nucleus, suggesting that it may have a role in transcription regulation. Calreticulin binds to the synthetic peptide KLGFFKR, which is almost identical to an amino acid sequence in the DNA-binding domain of the superfamily of nuclear receptors. Calreticulin binds to antibodies in certain sera of systemic lupus and Sjogren patients which contain anti-Ro/SSA antibodies, it is highly conserved among species, and it is located in the endoplasmic and sarcoplasmic reticulum where it may bind calcium. The amino terminus of calreticulin interacts with the DNA-binding domain of the glucocorticoid receptor and prevents the receptor from binding to its specific glucocorticoid response element. Calreticulin can inhibit the binding of androgen receptor to its hormone-responsive DNA element and can inhibit androgen receptor and retinoic acid receptor transcriptional activities in vivo, as well as retinoic acid-induced neuronal differentiation. Thus, calreticulin can act as an important modulator of the regulation of gene transcription by nuclear hormone receptors. Systemic lupus erythematosus is associated with increased autoantibody titers against calreticulin but calreticulin is not a Ro/SS-A antigen. Earlier papers referred to calreticulin as an Ro/SS-A antigen but this was later disproven. Increased autoantibody titer against human calreticulin is found in infants with complete congenital heart block of both the IgG and IgM classes. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

With Asterand’s TargetEvaluator® database consisting of more than 2000 XpressWay® Gene Expression Profiles, you are sure to find a target of interest. XpressWay® Profiles consist of high quality target expression in 72 normal human tissues from 3 different donors. The tissues are chosen to be representative of the major organ systems of the human body, and comprise many sub-dissected regions. Total RNA is isolated from tissues using Asterand’s standard methodologies, and gene expression is measured using highly sensitive and quantitative real time-PCR. Target gene transcripts are multiplexed with GAPDH as a control for the PCR process. Each XpressWay Sample Report presents visual expression profiles and a complete data set for your gene of interest. Click here for full details of Asterand's qRT-PCR methodologies used to generate XpressWay Profiles.

Profiles are purchased with a license and you will be provided in a full profile report. While any number of profiles may be purchased, if you are purchasing more than 20 profiles, please contact advantage@asterand.com so that your Regional Business Development Director may contact you for special tiered pricing.
