SUMMARY, EXPLANATION AND LIMITATIONS:
The expression of Androgen Receptor (AR) is reportedly inversely correlated with histologic grade i.e. well differentiated prostate tumors show higher expression than the poorly differentiated tumors. In prostate cancer, AR has been proposed as a marker of hormone-responsiveness.
Clone: AR 441
Immunogen: A synthetic peptide from human AR.
Staining pattern: Nuclear.
Positive control: Tissue sample from prostate carcinoma.
This antibody is designed for the specific localization of human AR using IHC techniques in formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue sections.
