General description

Lamin is a structural protein of the nuclear lamina. Lamin A is a type A lamin encoded by the LMNA gene. Lamin A contains 664 amino acids and is expressed in most somatic cells. It contains α-helical rod domain to enable assembly into filaments, a nuclear localization sequence, and a carboxy-terminal CAAX box isoprenylation sequence for nuclear membrane targeting.


synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 598-611 of human lamin A with a C-terminal added cysteine, conjugated to KLH. The corresponding sequence differs by one amino acid in rat, three amino acids in mouse, and by a gap of one amino acid in both rat and mouse lamin A.


Anti-Lamin A (C-terminal) antibody is suitable for use in western blot (0.1-0.2 μg/mL) using HeLa nuclear extract. This antibody can also be used in indirect immunofluorescence (1-2 μg/mL) using HeLa cells, rat NRK and mouse 3T3 cells. Additionally, anti-Lamin A (C-terminal) antibodies are suitable for use in immunoblotting (approx. 70 kDa). Cleaved fragments of lamin A may form additional bands at 45-50 kDa.
Anti-Lamin A (C-terminal) antibody produced in rabbit has been used in:
  • western blotting
  • immunofluorescence microscopy
  • immunohistochemistry

Biochem/physiol Actions

Lamin A cut into a 47kDa fragment that facilitates chromatin condensation and nuclear degradation during cell death
Mutations in lamin A and C have been linked to a variety of rare human diseases including muscular dystrophy, lipodystrophy, cardiomyopathy, neuropathy, and progeroid syndromes (collectively termed laminopathies) and to premature aging (Hutchinson-Gilford progeria syndrome).

Physical form
