Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab68915 in the following tested applications.

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

Application Abreviews Notes

WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 56 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 56 kDa).

Target

  • FunctionComponent of a complex of multiple actin cross-linking proteins. Involved in the control of myofibril assembly and stability at the Z lines in muscle cells.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in skeletal muscle (at protein level). Expressed in skeletal muscle, heart, bone marrow and thyroid gland.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in MYOT are the cause of limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 1A (LGMD1A) [MIM:159000]. LGMD1A is an autosomal dominant degenerative myopathy with onset within a mean age of 28 years. LGMD1A is characterized by progressive skeletal muscle weakness of the hip and shoulder girdles, later progressing to include distal weakness, as well as a distinctive dysarthric pattern of speech. Affected muscle exhibits disorganization and streaming of the Z-line.
    Defects in MYOT are the cause of myopathy myofibrillar myotylin-related (MFM-MYOT) [MIM:609200]. A neuromuscular disorder characterized by progressive skeletal muscle weakness greater distally than proximally, tight heel cords, hyporeflexia, cardiomyopathy and peripheral neuropathy in some patients. Affected muscle exhibits disorganization and streaming of the Z-line, presence of large hyaline structures, excessive accumulation of myotilin and other ectopically expressed proteins and prominent congophilic deposits.
    Defects in MYOT are the cause of spheroid body myopathy (SBM) [MIM:182920]. SBM is an autosomal dominant form of myofibrillar myopathy (MFM), characterized by slowly progressing proximal muscle weakness and dysarthric nasal speech. There is no evidence of cardiomyopathy. Muscle biopsy shows spheroid bodies within the type I muscle fibers.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the myotilin/palladin family.
    Contains 2 Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains.
  • Cellular localizationCell membrane > sarcolemma. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton. Cytoplasm > myofibril > sarcomere > Z line. Sarcomeric, also localized to the sarcolemma. Colocalizes with MYOZ1 at the Z-lines in skeletal muscle.

  • Anti-Myotilin antibody (ab68915) at 1 µg/ml + Skeletal Muscle (Rat) Tissue Lysate at 10 µg

    Secondary
    Goat polyclonal to Rabbit IgG - H&L - Pre-Adsorbed (HRP) at 1/3000 dilution

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size : 56 kDa
    Observed band size : 56 kDa


    Exposure time : 2 minutes
  • IHC image of ab68915 staining in skeletal muscle 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 sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab68915, 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.
