Involvement in diseaseDefects in BSCL2 are the cause of congenital generalized lipodystrophy type 2 (CGL2) [MIM:269700]. Congenital generalized lipodystrophy is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by a near absence of adipose tissue, extreme insulin resistance, hypertriglyceridemia, hepatic steatosis and early onset of diabetes. Defects in BSCL2 are the cause of spastic paraplegia type 17 (SPG17) [MIM:270685]; also known as Silver spastic paraplegia syndrome. Spastic paraplegia is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by a slow, gradual, progressive weakness and spasticity of the lower limbs. SPG17 is characterized by prominent amyotrophy of the hand muscles, the presence of mild to severe pyramidal tract signs, and spastic paraplegia. SPG17 is a motor neuron disease overlapping with distal spinal muscular atrophy type 5. Defects in BSCL2 are a cause of distal hereditary motor neuropathy type 5 (HMN5) [MIM:600794]; also known aS distal hereditary motor neuropathy type V (DSMAV). HMN5 is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by degeneration of motor nerve fibers, predominantly in limb distal regions.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the seipin family.

Secondary Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (HRP) preadsorbed (ab97080) at 1/5000 dilution Developed using the ECL technique
IHC image of BSCL2 staining in Human normal testis formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with EDTA (pH9, epitope retrieval solution 2) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab106793, 5µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.
For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
