Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab13524 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|Flow Cyt||Use 1µg for 106 cells.
ab37371 - Rat polyclonal IgG, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
|IHC-P||Use a concentration of 10 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.|
|IHC-Fr||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|IP||Use at an assay dependent concentration. (PMID 2142158).|
|ICC||1/100. Fix cells with methanol or with paraformaldehyde-lysine-periodate formulation. If the latter is used, permeabilize with saponin, not with Triton X-100 or NP-40. The antibody will label the presumptive lysosomes and late endosomes in cells that have been permeabilized with saponin 0.01%.|
|ICC/IF||1/100. (see Abreview)|
|WB||Use at an assay dependent concentration. See Abreview.|
FunctionImplicated in tumor cell metastasis. May function in protection of the lysosomal membrane from autodigestion, maintenance of the acidic environment of the lysosome, adhesion when expressed on the cell surface (plasma membrane), and inter-and intracellular signal transduction. Protects cells from the toxic effects of methylating mutagens.
Tissue specificityIsoform LAMP-2A is highly expressed in placenta, lung and liver, less in kidney and pancreas, low in brain and skeletal muscle. Isoform LAMP-2B is highly expressed in skeletal muscle, less in brain, placenta, lung, kidney and pancreas, very low in liver.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in LAMP2 are the cause of Danon disease (DAND) [MIM:300257]; also known as glycogen storage disease type 2B (GSD2B). DAND is a lysosomal glycogen storage disease characterized by the clinical triad of cardiomyopathy, vacuolar myopathy and mental retardation. It is often associated with an accumulation of glycogen in muscle and lysosomes.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the LAMP family.
modificationsO- and N-glycosylated; some of the 16 N-linked glycans are polylactosaminoglycans.
Cellular localizationCell membrane. Endosome membrane. Lysosome membrane. This protein shuttles between lysosomes, endosomes, and the plasma membrane.

Additional bands at: 28 kDa (possible non-specific binding), 70 kDa (possible non-specific binding)
Exposure time: 3 minutes
Blocked with 5% milk for 1 hour at RT.
Incubated with primary antibody in 5% BSA/TBST for 16 hours at 4°C.
Immunofluorescence staining of LAMP2 in adult mouse cardiac myocytes using ab13524 at 1/100. Top panels: WT. Lower panels: PINK -/- myocytes. Cells were fixed in 4% PFA and permeabilized with 0.2% saponin. Blocking was performed with 5% normal goat serum + 0.2% Triton X100 in PBS. Hoechst 33342 was used for counter-staining.
PFA perfusion-fixed, frozen section of mouse brain tissue stained for LAMP2 using ab13524 at 1/500 dilution in immunohistochemical analysis. Goat anti-rat AlexaFluor® 488 secondary antibody.
ab13524 staining LAMP2 in Mouse uterus tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-Fr - frozen sections). Tissue was fixed with paraformaldehyde and blocked with 3% BSA for 30 minutes at room temperature. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/300 in PBS + 1% BSA) for 12 hours at 4°C. An Alexa Fluor® 488-conjugated Goat anti-rat IgG polyclonal (1/200) was used as the secondary antibody.
Rabbit corneal endothelial cell stained for LAMP2 (green) using ab13524 at 1/1000 dilution in ICC/IF.
