SPECIES REACTIVITY:Human, Mouse, Rat
TESTED APPLICATIONS:ELISA, IF, IHC-P, WB
APPLICATIONS:LAMP-1 antibody can be used for the detection of LAMP-1 by Western blot at 1 - 2 μg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunohistochemistry starting at 2.5 μg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 μg/mL.

Antibody validated: Western Blot in mouse samples; Immunohistochemistry in rat samples and Immunofluorescence in human and rat samples. All other applications and species not yet tested.
USER NOTE:Optimal dilutions for each application to be determined by the researcher.
POSITIVE CONTROL:1) Cat. No. 1287 - EL4 Cell Lysate
 2) Cat. No. 1320 - Human Colon Tissue Lysate
PREDICTED MOLECULAR WEIGHT:Predicted: 46 kDa

Observed: 95 kDa
SPECIFICITY:LAMP-1 antibody is predicted to not cross-react with LAMP-2. Due to extensive post-translational modification, LAMP-1 often migrates at higher than predicted molecular weight in SDS-PAGE.
IMMUNOGEN:LAMP-1 antibody was raised against a 15 amino acid synthetic peptide from near the center of human LAMP-1.

The immunogen is located within amino acids 230 - 280 of LAMP-1.
HOST SPECIES:Rabbit

Properties

PURIFICATION:LAMP-1 Antibody is affinity chromatography purified via peptide column.
PHYSICAL STATE:Liquid
BUFFER:LAMP-1 Antibody is supplied in PBS containing 0.02% sodium azide.
CONCENTRATION:1 mg/mL
STORAGE CONDITIONS:LAMP-1 antibody can be stored at 4˚C for three months and -20˚C, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.
CLONALITY:Polyclonal
ISOTYPE:IgG
CONJUGATE:Unconjugated

Background

BACKGROUND:LAMP-1 Antibody: Autophagy, the process of bulk degradation of cellular proteins through an autophagosomic-lysosomal pathway is important for normal growth control and may be defective in tumor cells. It is involved in the preservation of cellular nutrients under starvation conditions as well as the normal turnover of cytosolic components and is negatively regulated by TOR (Target of rapamycin). A protein recently found to be involved in autophagy, LAMP-2, is a highly glycosylated protein associated with the lysosome. LAMP-1 shares much homology to LAMP-2 and is thought to have overlapping functions. Mice lacking LAMP-1 had very minor defects compared to those deficient in LAMP-2 expression. However, the loss of both proteins resulted in embryonic lethality, suggesting that each protein possesses some unique and necessary functions.
