|W IHC-P||H M R (B)||Endogenous||28, 70||Rabbit|
Reactivity Key: H=Human M=Mouse R=Rat B=Bovine
Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot. Species enclosed in parentheses are predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology.
Specificity / Sensitivity
Lamin A/C Antibody detects endogenous levels of total full length lamin A (and lamin C) (70 kDa), as well as the small fragment of lamin A (and lamin C) resulting from cleavage at aspartic acid 230 (28 kDa).
Source / Purification
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Asp230 of human lamin A. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
Western blot analysis of extracts from HeLa cells, untreated or staurosporine-treated (1 µM), using Lamin A/C Antibody.
Western blot analysis of extracts from HeLa, Raw 264.7 and PC12 cells, using Lamin A/C Antibody.
Immunohistochemical staining of paraffin-embedded human breast tumor, showing staining of the nuclear envelope, using Lamin A/C Antibody.
Lamins are nuclear membrane structural components that are important in maintaining normal cell functions such as cell cycle control, DNA replication, and chromatin organization (1-3). Lamin A/C is cleaved by caspase-6 and serves as a marker for caspase-6 activation. During apoptosis, lamin A/C is specifically cleaved into a large (41-50 kDa) and a small (28 kDa) fragment (3,4). The cleavage of lamins results in nuclear disregulation and cell death (5,6).
