Laminin alpha 1 in Embryonic Mouse Decidua.
Laminin alpha 1 was detected in immersion fixed frozen sections of embryonic mouse decidua (E10.5) using 10 µg/mL Rat Anti-Mouse Laminin alpha 1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB4656) overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained with the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL013) and counterstained with DAPI (blue).

Laminin alpha 1 in Mouse Kidney, Skin, Intestine, and Skeletal Muscle.
Laminin alpha 1 was detected in perfusion fixed frozen sections of mouse kidney glomeruli (panel A), skin (panel B), intestine (panel C), and skeletal muscle (panel D) using Rat Anti-Mouse Laminin alpha 1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB4656) at 10 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL013) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cell surfaces. View our protocol for Fluorescent IHC Staining of Frozen Tissue Sections.

Background: Laminin alpha 1
Laminins are heterotrimeric, non-collagenous glycoproteins composed of alpha, beta, and gamma chains. Through interactions with integrins, dystroglycan, and other receptors, Laminins contribute to cell differentation, cell shape and migration, maintenance of tissue phenotypes, and survival. Laminin-1 is comprised of alpha 1, beta 1, and gamma 1 subunits.
