  • Relevance
    LOXL1 is a member of the lysyl oxidase gene family. The prototypic member of the family is essential to the biogenesis of connective tissue, encoding an extracellular copper-dependent amine oxidase that catalyses the first step in the formation of crosslinks in collagens and elastin. A highly conserved amino acid sequence at the C-terminus end appears to be sufficient for amine oxidase activity, suggesting that each family member may retain this function. The N-terminus is poorly conserved and may impart additional roles in developmental regulation, senescence, tumor suppression, cell growth control, and chemotaxis to each member of the family. LOXL1 is active on elastin and collagen substrates. Genetic variations in LOXL1 are associated with risk of developing exfoliation syndrome (XFS) [MIM:177650]; also called exfoliation glaucoma (XFG). Exfoliation syndrome (XFS) is characterized by accumulation of abnormal microfibrillar deposits that line the aqueous bathed surfaces of the anterior segment of the eye. The prevalence of XFS increases with age, and a number of studies have pointed to a geographical clustering of XFS, although this condition is found worldwide; reported prevalence rates average about 10 to 20% of the general population over age 60.

  • Anti-LOXL1 antibody (ab81488) at 1 µg/ml + HepG2 cell lysate at 10 µg

    HRP conjugated anti-Rabbit IgG at 1/50000 dilution

    Predicted band size: 63 kDa

  • LOXL1 was immunoprecipitated using 0.5mg HepG2 whole cell extract, 5µg of Rabbit polyclonal to LOXL1 and 50µl of protein G magnetic beads (+). No antibody was added to the control (-).
    The antibody was incubated under agitation with Protein G beads for 10min, HepG2 whole cell extract lysate diluted in RIPA buffer was added to each sample and incubated for a further 10min under agitation.
    Proteins were eluted by addition of 40µl SDS loading buffer and incubated for 10min at 70oC; 10µl of each sample was separated on a SDS PAGE gel, transferred to a nitrocellulose membrane, blocked with 5% BSA and probed with ab81488.
    Secondary: Mouse monoclonal [SB62a] Secondary Antibody to Rabbit IgG light chain (HRP) (ab99697).
    Band: 63kDa; LOXL1
