Polyclonal Rabbit Serum E IH IC IF
Laminin is a basic component of basement membranes that mediates a number of biological functions such as cell adhesion, growth, migration and differentiation. It has been shown to bind to cells through membrane receptors. It is a very complex protein composed of three chains that form a cruciform structure with three short arms and one long arm. The molecule has one heavy (A) chain (Mr ~400kD) and two light (B) chains (Mr ~200kD). Furthermore, there are three types of light chains, B1, B2 and s-laminin. All the chains contain globular domains, rod-like domains with cysteine-rich repeats and an azhelical domain that participates in the triple coiled-coil structure forming the long arm of the molecule. Additionally, the A chain has a large C-terminal globule, termed domain G. The gene encoding the laminin protein maps to 18p11.31 region of human chromosome.
