Scientific Data

Immunohistochemistry Lumican antibody in Mouse Intestine by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-Fr). View Larger

Lumican in Mouse Intestine. Lumican was detected in perfusion fixed frozen sections of mouse intestine using Goat Anti-Mouse Lumican Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF2745) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Lower panel shows a lack of labeling if primary antibodies are omitted and tissue is stained only with secondary antibody followed by incubation with detection reagents.

Detection of Mouse Lumican by Immunohistochemistry Immunoperoxidase for lumican. (A) Ovx group: A weak immunoreaction is observed in the endometrial stroma, especially under the luminal epithelium (arrow) and in the deep stroma, as well as in the EML and connective tissue between muscle layers of the myometrium; (B) E2-group: the reaction is present in the whole endometrial stroma and in both layers of the myometrium; (C) MPA-group: the reaction is present in the whole stroma, however it is weak in the subepithelial stroma (asterisk). In the myometrium, deposition of lumican is observed in the EML and connective tissue between layers; (D) E2+MPA-group: the immunoreaction is strong in the whole endometrial stroma. In the myometrium, a weak staining is observed in both IML and EML, being strong in the connective tissue between them. L = uterine lumen; G = endometrial gland; SS = superficial stroma; DS = deep stroma; V = blood vessel; IML = internal muscle layer; EML = external muscle layer. Scale bar: 50 μm.

Background: Lumican

Lumican is a 40 kDa member of the family of small leucine-rich repeat proteoglycans (SLRPs) and the class II subfamily (1). Mouse Lumican is synthesized as a 338 amino acid (aa) precursor that contains an 18 aa signal sequence and a 320 aa mature chain (SwissProt #: 51885). The mature chain contains a negatively charged N‑terminal domain containing sulfated tyrosine and disulfide bonds, 12 leucine-rich repeats (LRRs), four potential sites of N-linked glycosylation, and a carboxyl terminal domain containing two conserved cysteines (1). Mature mouse Lumican is 98%, 88%, and 70% aa identical to mature rat, human, and chick Lumican, respectively. SLRPs constitute an important fraction of noncollagenous extracellular matrix proteins (ECM) proteins (1-2). Lumican is expressed in a variety of tissues, including skin, artery, lung, cornea, kidney, bone, aorta, and articular cartilage (1). Lumican’s role in vivo has been found using Lumican null mice. These mice have functional deficits including corneal opacity as well as skin and tendon fragility associated with disorganized and loosely packed collagen fibers (1, 3-6). The abnormal connective tissue phenotype seen in the Lumican null mice shows the importance of the role of Lumican in collagen fibrillogenesis (1). In addition to the control of collagen fibril assembly, Lumican has been shown to play a role in the regulation of cell proliferation (7-8), migration (8-9), and adhesion (9). Lumican’s overexpression has been reported in carcinoid tumor, breast, colorectal, neuroendocrine, uterine cervical, and pancreatic cancers (10).
