The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use at an assay dependent dilution.
Use a concentration of 1 - 2 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 210 kDa. The best results were obtained by incubating the primary antibody overnight at 4C.
Use at 2 µg/mg of lysate.
1/50. Staining of acid-alcohol fixed tissues requires antigen unmasking with 15,000 U/ml of bovine testicular hyaluronidase in PBS, pH 7.4 for 30 minutes at 37C.
FunctionBinding to cells via a high affinity receptor, laminin is thought to mediate the attachment, migration and organization of cells into tissues during embryonic development by interacting with other extracellular matrix components.
Tissue specificityFound in the basement membranes (major component).
Sequence similaritiesContains 11 laminin EGF-like domains. Contains 1 laminin IV type A domain. Contains 1 laminin N-terminal domain.
DomainThe alpha-helical domains I and II are thought to interact with other laminin chains to form a coiled coil structure. Domains VI and IV are globular.

ab17792 staining Laminin gamma 1 in dog skeletal muscle tissue by Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with acetone. Samples were incubated with the primary antibody at a 1/100 dilution for 8 hours at 4°C. An FITC-conjugated goat polyclonal was used as secondary antibody at a 1/200 dilution.
