The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-Fr Use a concentration of 0.5 - 1 µg/ml. Formalin or acetone fixed tissues.
WB Use a concentration of 1 - 2 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 70 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 198 kDa).
IHC-P Use a concentration of 0.5 - 1 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
ICC Use a concentration of 0.5 - 1 µg/ml. Acetone fixed.


  • Function
    Lamins are components of the nuclear lamina, a fibrous layer on the nucleoplasmic side of the inner nuclear membrane, which is thought to provide a framework for the nuclear envelope and may also interact with chromatin.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in LMNB1 are the cause of leukodystrophy demyelinating autosomal dominant adult-onset (ADLD) [MIM:169500]. ADLD is a slowly progressive and fatal demyelinating leukodystrophy, presenting in the fourth or fifth decade of life. Clinically characterized by early autonomic abnormalities, pyramidal and cerebellar dysfunction, and symmetric demyelination of the CNS. It differs from multiple sclerosis and other demyelinating disorders in that neuropathology shows preservation of oligodendroglia in the presence of subtotal demyelination and lack of astrogliosis.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the intermediate filament family.
  • Post-translational
    B-type lamins undergo a series of modifications, such as farnesylation and phosphorylation. Increased phosphorylation of the lamins occurs before envelope disintegration and probably plays a role in regulating lamin associations.
  • Cellular localization
    Nucleus inner membrane.
