Scientific Data

Western Blot Detection of Human Laforin/EPM2A antibody by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of Human Laforin/EPM2A by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human heart and brain tissue, and HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL Mouse Anti-Human Laforin/EPM2A Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5714) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). For additional reference, recombinant human Laforin (3 ng) was included. A specific band for Laforin/EPM2A was detected at approximately 38 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 3.

Background: Laforin/EPM2A

Laforin, also known as Lafora PTPase and EPM2A, is a 38 kDa member of the protein tyrosine phosphatase family. Human Laforin is 331 aa in length and contains one carbohydrate binding type-20 (CBM20) domain (aa 1-124) and one tyrosine-protein phosphatase domain (aa 243-311). Multiple splicing variants produce four isoforms of human Laforin, which is most highly expressed in heart, skeletal muscle, kidney, pancreas and brain. It functions as a dual specificity protein phosphatase and may be involved in the control of glycogen metabolism. Mutations in Laforin cause progressive myoclonic epilepsy type 2, also known as Lafora disease.
