Target

  • FunctionAnchors the extracellular matrix to the cytoskeleton via F-actin. Ligand for dystroglycan. Component of the dystrophin-associated glycoprotein complex which accumulates at the neuromuscular junction (NMJ) and at a variety of synapses in the peripheral and central nervous systems and has a structural function in stabilizing the sarcolemma. Also implicated in signaling events and synaptic transmission.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in muscle fibers accumulating in the costameres of myoplasm at the sarcolemma. Expressed in brain, muscle, kidney, lung and testis. Isoform 5 is expressed in heart, brain, liver, testis and hepatoma cells. Most tissues contain transcripts of multiple isoforms, however only isoform 5 is detected in heart and liver.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in DMD are the cause of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) [MIM:310200]. DMD is the most common form of muscular dystrophy; a sex-linked recessive disorder. It typically presents in boys aged 3 to 7 year as proximal muscle weakness causing waddling gait, toe-walking, lordosis, frequent falls, and difficulty in standing up and climbing up stairs. The pelvic girdle is affected first, then the shoulder girdle. Progression is steady and most patients are confined to a wheelchair by age of 10 or 12. Flexion contractures and scoliosis ultimately occur. About 50% of patients have a lower IQ than their genetic expectations would suggest. There is no treatment.
    Defects in DMD are the cause of Becker muscular dystrophy (BMD) [MIM:300376]. BMD resembles DMD in hereditary and clinical features but is later in onset and more benign.
    Defects in DMD are a cause of cardiomyopathy dilated X-linked type 3B (CMD3B) [MIM:302045]; also known as X-linked dilated cardiomyopathy (XLCM). Dilated cardiomyopathy is a disorder characterized by ventricular dilation and impaired systolic function, resulting in congestive heart failure and arrhythmia. Patients are at risk of premature death.
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 2 CH (calponin-homology) domains.
    Contains 22 spectrin repeats.
    Contains 1 WW domain.
    Contains 1 ZZ-type zinc finger.

Anti-Dystrophin antibody images

  • Immunohistochemical staining of human skeletal muscle with ab15277
  • Muscle stem cells (from normal mouse) were injected into the gastric muscle of an MDX mouse. Dystrophin staining: primary antibody ab15277 and secondary antibody is donkey anti-rabbit Alexa 594.

    This image was kindly supplied as part of the review submitted by Jessica Tebbets.

  • ab15277 staining dog muscle cells by ICC/IF.  Cells were methanol fixed and incubated with ab15277, diluted 1/200, for 12 hours at 4°C.  A FITC conjugated goat anti-rabbit antibody, diluted 1/200, was used as the secondary.

    See Abreview

  • Immunofluorescence analysis of Human muscle fibers, staining Dystrophin with ab15277.

    Cells were fixed with formaldehyde and blocked with 10% serum for 20 minutes at 23°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/100 in diluent) for 12 hours at 2°C. An AlexaFluor®488-conjugated goat anti-rabbit polyclonal IgG (1/200) was used as the secondary antibody.

I apologize for the delay in my reply. We do not have any experimental data regarding the cross reactivity of ab15277 with human Utrophin. The immunogen for ab15277 shares no homology with the human Utrophin sequence.

I have been discussing this with the lab, and they actually use a 1:25 dilution of this antibody in Western blot. Would you be able to try this high concentration of antibody, to see if the specific signal improves? I have attached the Wester...
