General description

Dystrophin is a 427kD cytoskeletal protein found in muscle sarcolemma as a membrane-spanning protein complex which connects the cytoskeleton to the basal lamina. Defects in the gene coding for dystrophin leads to X-linked Duchenne muscular dystrophy. Monoclonal anti-dystrophin antibody can be used to study the structure and function of dystrophin and its interactions with other proteins. The antibody can also be used in immunohistochemical analysis for prenatal or post-abortion diagnosis of muscle dystrophies carriers. Mouse monoclonal anti-dystrophin antibody reacts specifically with an epitope present on the rod domain of the human dystrophin molecule.

Antigen Background

The rod domain of the human dystrophin molecule is present in normal muscle tissue and in nearly all Becker muscular dystrophies. It is absent in the cases of Duchenne muscular dystrophies and in the dystrophic mouse (mdx).


Monoclonal anti-dystrophin antibody can be used for localization of dystrophin using immunochemical assays like ELISA and immunohistochemistry. The antibody can also be used in immunoblotting for brain dystrophin. Further, it can be used in western blotting and double immunofluorescent labelling (diluted 1: 500) of dystrophin.
