|Applications||ChIP ELISA IHC EMSA|
|Antigen/Gene or Protein Targets||HuR|
|Synonyms||ELAV-like protein 1, Human antigen R|
ELAV-like protein 1 or HuR (human antigen R) is a protein that in humans is encoded by the ELAVL1 gene. The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the ELAVL protein family. This encoded protein contains 3 RNA-binding domains and binds cis-acting AU-rich elements. It stabilizes mRNAs and thereby regulates gene expression.
A popular technique is to use anti-HuR antibodies to pull out interacting mRNAs and thereby analyse gene expression in a particular tissue. Monoclonal antibody 4C8 was selected by its ability to bind to the HuR/mRNA complex and thus is very useful for EMSA, ChIP and CLIP studies.
