Targeting a Protein that Constructs Cell Parts and Surfaces
Scientists at the University of Florida have developed a wide variety of monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies, cell lines, vectors and biological materials that can be used in other research projects. Anyone interested in accessing these materials via a license from the University of Florida should contact our office to make arrangements. This is a rabbit polyclonal antiserum, raised against laminin protein isolated from rat heart. Laminins are a family of extracellular matrix proteins found in basement membranes and associated with cell surfaces. This antiserum recognizes the laminin-1 and laminin-2 in human and rodent species (and perhaps others) and is useful in ELISA, Western blotting and immunocytochemistry (including paraffin sections).
