The estrogen receptor mouse antibody (ER) is a 66-kDa protein that mediates the actions of estrogens in estrogen-responsive tissues. The ER gene consists of more than 140kb of genomic DNA divided into 8 exons. These translate into a protein with six functionally discrete domains, labeled A through F. This antibody can be use for labeling estrogen targeted tissues such as breast.
