|Application ||WB, E|
|Calculated MW||202524 Da|
|Other Names||Laminin subunit alpha-4, Laminin-14 subunit alpha, Laminin-8 subunit alpha, Laminin-9 subunit alpha, LAMA4|
|Target/Specificity||This LAMA4 antibody is generated from a rabbit immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 1474-1508 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human LAMA4.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||LAMA4 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Binding to cells via a high affinity receptor, laminin is thought to mediate the attachment, migration and organization of cells into tissues during embryonic development by interacting with other extracellular matrix components.|
|Cellular Location||Secreted, extracellular space, extracellular matrix, basement membrane. Note=Major component|
|Tissue Location||In adult, strong expression in heart, lung, ovary small and large intestines, placenta, liver; weak or no expression in skeletal muscle, kidney, pancreas, testis, prostate, brain. High expression in fetal lung and kidney. Expression in fetal and newborn tissues is observed in certain mesenchymal cells in tissues such as smooth muscle and dermis|
