Print the Datasheet for Lamin C Antibody

  • An important part of the cell nucleus is formed by nuclear lamina Nuclear lamins form a network of filaments at the nucleoplasmic site of the nuclear membrane Two main subtypes of nuclear lamins can be distinguished ie A-type lamins and B-type lamins The A-type lamins comprise a set of three proteins arising from the same gene by alternative splicing ie lamin A lamin C and lamin Adel10 while the B-type lamins include two proteins arising from two distinct genes ie lamin B1 and lamin B2 The nuclear lamins comprise a unique subclass of the intermediate filament protein family They share a molecular domain organisation with the other intermediate filament proteins in that they are fibrous molecules that have an aminoterminal globular head a central rod of a-helices and a carboxyterminal globular domain Many biochemical and molecular features of lamins have been studied but their functions remain still largely undetermined One of the functions ascribed to the lamina is the maintenance of the structural integrity of the nucleus Besides interactions with the nuclear membrane and other intermediate filaments lamins interact with the nuclear chromatin Eukaryotic chromatin is organised into loops which are attached to the nuclear matrix This organisation is thought to contribute to compaction of the chromatin and regulation of gene expression Lamins as part of the nuclear matrix may be involved in these processes since chromatin binding sites have been detected in both A- and B-type lamins

Immunofluorescence protocol - Formaldehyde fixation

   1. Collect cells from T.c.unit and remove media from petri dish using suction.
   2. Wash with 1x PBS and remove.
   3. Incubate cells in pre-warm (37°C) Para-Formaldehyde for 12 minutes at room temperature on an orbital shaker.
   4. Remove PFA and incubate in 0.5% Triton X-IOO in 1x PBS for 5 minutes at room temperature.
   5. Prepare blocking reagent, this is also the antibody diluent.
   6. Wash cells 2x with 1x PBS at room temperature, for 4 minutes/wash on an orbital shaker.
   7. Block with 1 % NCS and 1x PBS for 30 minutes at room temperature.
   8. Prepare primary antibodies (50?l/coverslip) and moist staining chambers.
   9. Wash cells 2x with lx PBS at room temperature and air dry briefly.
  10. Incubate with primary antibody for 1 hr at room temperature in the dark in staining chambers. During this time prepare the secondary antibody.
  11. Wash cells 5x with 1x PBS (5 beaker changes/5 counts in each beaker)
  12. Incubate with secondary antibody for 1 hour at room temperature in the dark in staining chambers.
  13. Wash cells 5x with 1x PBS.
  14. Mount in Dapi.

Solutions (prepare fresh the same day of staining).

    * 1x Phosphate buffered saline.
    * Blocking reagent: 1% NCS in 1x PBS (use fresh l0x PBS).
    * Fixation solution: 3.5% Para formaldehyde.

1.75g PFA in 20 ml d.H20 plus 5 drops 1M NaOH. Stir on a hot plate at 50-60°C until dissolved. Add 4 drops IN HCI and check pH indicator strip. PH should be 7.4. Complete volume with d.H20 to 25ml and add 25ml 2xPBS. Check pH before adding to cover slips.


Immunofluorescence protocol - Methanol/acetone fixation

   1. Collect cells from T.C.unit and remove media from petri dish using suction.
   2. Wash with 1x PBS and remove.
   3. Fix cells with cold methanol: acetone 1: 1 for 10 minutes on ice.
   4. Prepare blocking reagent, this is also the diluent for the antibodies.
   5. Remove fixative and wash cells 3x with Ix PBS at RT, for 4 minutes/wash on orbital shaker.
   6. Block with 1% NCS and Ix PBS for 30 minutes at RT.
   7. Prepare primary antibodies (50?l/coverslip) and moist staining chambers.
   8. Wash cells 2x with 1 x PBS at RT and air dry for approximately 7 minutes.
   9. Incubate with primary antibody for 1 hr at RT in the dark in staining chambers.  During this time prepare secondary antibody.
  10. Wash cells 5x with 1x PBS (5 beaker changes/5 counts in each beaker)
  11. Incubate with secondary antibody for 1 hr at R T in the dark in staining chambers.
  12. Wash cells 5x with 1x PBS.
  13. Mount in Dapi.

Solutions (prepare fresh the same day of staining)

    * 1x Phosphate buffered saline.
    * Blocking reagent: 1% NCS in 1x PBS (use fresh 10x PBS).
    * Fixation solution: methanol:acetone 1: 1 ice cold.



Western Blotting Protocol

   1. Transfer gel to PDVF or nitrocellulose membrane
   2. Place membrane in plastic tray in blocking buffer for one hour with agitation
   3. Rinse in wash buffer
   4. Incubate in wash buffer plus primary antibody for one hour
   5. Wash 6 X 5 minutes with wash buffer
   6. Incubate in wash buffer plus secondary antibody for one hour
   7. Wash 6X 5 minutes with wash buffer
   8. Detect (e.g. ECL, Amersham according to manufacturers instructions)

Wash buffer
PBS + 0.1% Tween 20

Blocking buffer
Wash buffer + 5% dried milk powder

The concentration of antibodies used depends on each antibody, the amount of antigen and the detection method used. Generally, dilution is in the range of a few hundred times dilution to a few thousand times dilution, but usually has to be determined empirically.
