A specialized extension of the ER, the nuclear envelope (NE) forms the nuclear compartment boundary in eukaryotic cells. It contains numerous pore complexes and the nucleoplasmic side is linked to nuclear lamina. The nuclear lamina composes the structural framework for the NE and serves as a chromatin anchor site, thus, playing a major role in interphase nuclear organization. Many proteins are associated with lamina, particularly the LAPs (Lamina-Associated Polypeptides). LAP2 (also known as LAP2β) is a hydrophilic protein with a single transmembrane segment near the C-terminus. Thus, it has been defined as a type II integral membrane protein with the majority of its structure exposed to the nucleoplasm. LAP2 binding to lamins contributes to the attachment of the nuclear lamina to the inner nuclear membrane. LAP2 also binds to chromatin, implying its role in chromosomal organization during mitosis. Mitotic phosphorylation of LAP2 regulates its binding to lamins and chromosomes during the disassembly and reassembly of mitosis. Thus, LAP2 is a nuclear protein that plays a role in the organization of the NE during cell cycle progression.

Down Arrow Up Arrow
Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
