Nuclear lamin proteins (lamin A, B and C) form a complex structural scaffold, called the nuclear lamina, which is associated with the inside of the nuclear envelope.
Lamins bind to a huge number of nuclear protein complexes and are involved in several processes, including chromatin organisation, gene regulation, genome stability, nuclear and cytoskeletal organisation, mechanical stability, differentiation, and tissue-specific functions. Mutations in lamin proteins result in laminopathies such as muscular dystrophy and the accelerated aging condition, Hutchinson-Gilford progeria.
This antibody recognises human lamin A and C in both Western blots and immunohistochemistry with a strong signal and low background signal.
