Description

Laminins, which consist of three subunits called α, β and γ chains, are major cell-adhesive components of extracellular matrix, especially basement membranes (BMs). The laminin family is constituted of over 15 isoforms, and each member is expressed in a tissue-specific manner and plays a differential role in each tissue. In the case of laminin α3 chain, there are two splicing variants, the truncated form α3A and the full-length α3B. Laminin-3A32 (Lm3A32) (Figure 1 left), formerly called laminin-5 or -5A, is composed of α3A, β3 and γ2 chains and distributed in the skin, esophagus, lung, breast and other epithelial tissues. This laminin has been extensively investigated in cancer biology because of its strong cell adhesion and cell motility activities. It also supports growth and adhesion of some types of stem cells. On the other hand, laminin-3B32 (Lm3B32) (formerly, laminin-5B; Figure 1 right) is composed of α3B, β3 and γ2 chains and less widely expressed than laminin-3A32. Although laminin-3B32 shows higher cell adhesion activity than laminin-3A32 in vitro, differences of biological functions between two laminins remain to be clarified. Dr. Kaoru Miyazaki and co-workers developed two types of anti-α3 antibodies, clone BG5 for α/α3B and clone F7 for anti-α3B. Although clone BG5 recognizes both α3A and α3B chains by immunoblotting, ELISA, immunoprecipitation/immunoaffinity purification, it specifically detects α3A chain in immunohistochemistry. In the analysis, BG5 highly detects laminin-3A32 in the basement membranes of normal epithelial tissues and of relatively benign or differentiated carcinomas. It may also detect laminin-3A11. As its sister clone F7 is specific for α3B chain, the combination of BG5 and F7 is an important tool to investigate the difference of the fulllength and truncated α3 laminins. These antibodies, together with the anti-γ2 antibody P2H capable of detecting invasive cancers, are powerful tools in pathological analyses of human cancers. Note: anti-laminin α3B clone F7 and anti-laminin γ2 clone P2H are also available as catalog no. FDV-0023 and FDV-0025, respectively.

Validation of specificity by ELISA
Five recombinant human laminins were coated on multi-well plate and detected by clone BG5 and F7. BG5 detects Lm3A32 and Lm 3B32. F7 specifically detects Lm3B32 isoform. F3.png
Immunohistochemistry : Normal tissues
Sample:
(A) Normal skin tissue (paraffin slice)
(B) Normal mammary gland (paraffin slice)
(C) Normal lung tissue (paraffin slice)

*1 Clone BG5 only detects alpha 3A in IHC. However, this clone may react with alpha 3B in ELISA, IP and Western Blot.
*2 Clone 12D can be only used for IHC (Frozen) and under non-reducing condition for Western Blot.
*3 Non-preservative added. So these 4 clones can be degraded at 4
oC. We recommend -20oC storage.
