  • FunctionPotential transcription factor. May play a role in early mesoderm formation and later in lateral mesoderm differentiation and neurogenesis.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in the brain, thymus, and tonsils. Expressed in samples from patients with chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) and in 58% of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) cell lines.
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 1 homeobox DNA-binding domain.
    Contains 2 LIM zinc-binding domains.
  • DomainThe LIM domains exert a negative regulatory function and disruption of the LIM domains produces an activated form. In addition, two activation domains and a negative regulatory domain exist C-terminally to the homeobox.

Anti-LIM1 antibody images

  • ab14554 staining LIM1 in human fetal kidney cells by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with formaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.5% Triton X-100 in PBS and blocked with 5% BSA for 1 hour at 25°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/200) for 1 hour at 37°C. An Alexa Fluor® 488-conjugated mouse anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal (1/200) was used as the secondary antibody. Actin filaments stained with phalloidin (red).

  • ab14554 at 1/200 dilution staining mouse postnatal day 5 retina cells (known to express LIM 1) by ICC/IF. The cells were formaldehyde fixed and incubated with the antibody for 72 hours. An Alex-Fluor 488 conjugated donkey anti-rabbit antibody was used as the secondary. The image shows strong horizontal cell process labeling with fainter nuclear label.
