PR is a nuclear hormone receptor that activates transcription of various genes, especially in reproductive tissues, regulated by its ligand progesterone. Two isoforms exist : PR-A (94 kDa) and PR-B (114 kDa). Antibody PR detects both isoforms. Ratio of these isoforms varies in reproductive tissues and during carcinogenesis. The antibody labels cells in breast, ovary and uterus, and is an important marker for detection of breast cancer.
