Please refer to the product datasheet for known applications of a given antibody. We\'ve tested the Actin antibody with the following immunoassay(s):
Immunohistochemistry (IHC) (Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded human leiomyoma stained with Actin antibody using peroxidase-conjugate and DAB chromogen. Note cytoplasmic staining of smooth muscle cells.)
Mouse monoclonal Actin antibody.
Biological Significance: Actin is a globular, roughly 42- kDa protein found in eukaryotic cells. It is also one of the most highly-conserved proteins, differing by no more than 20% in species as diverse as algae and humans. Actin is the monomeric subunit of two types of filaments in cells: microfilaments, one of the three major components of the cytoskeleton, and thin filaments, part of the contractile apparatus in muscle cells. Biohazard Information: This product contains sodium azide as preservative. Although the amount of sodium azide is very small appropriate care must be taken when handling.
Immunogen: Actin antibody was raised in mouse using N-terminal decapeptide of smooth muscle isoform of actin, acetylated at the N-terminus, as the immunogen. In general, we may offer more than one antibody to a given target to enable options for the researcher. Available antibodies recognizing Actin are readily searchable from our website. Different antibodies against the same target such as Actin may be optimized or tested for different applications and species. This enables researchers to select the option that may be best for their model system, to screen more than antibody to determine which one may be best for their model system, as well as to use more than one antibody to follow up on and validate their results.
