Gallery: Lamin B2 Antibody #9622
Lamin B2 Antibody recognizes endogenous levels of total lamin B2 protein.Species predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology: Monkey, Pig
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Leu75 of human lamin B2 protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
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). Lamins have been subdivided into types A and B. Type-A lamins consist of lamin A and C, which arise from alternative splicing of the lamin A gene LMNA. Lamin A and C are cleaved by caspases into large (41-50 kDa) and small (28 kDa) fragments, which can be used as markers for apoptosis (4,5). Type-B lamins consist of lamin B1 and B2, encoded by separate genes (6-8). Lamin B1 is also cleaved by caspases during apoptosis (9). Research studies have shown that duplication of the lamin B1 gene LMNB1 is correlated with pathogenesis of the neurological disorder adult-onset leukodystrophy (10).
