DATASHEET  




$395

Actin is a major cytoskeletal protein involved in diverse cellular functions including cell motility, adhesion, and morphology. Six different actin isoforms have been identified in vertebrates. There are four α isoforms: skeletal, cardiac, and two smooth muscle (enteric and aortic) actins, along with two cytoplasmic actins (β and γ). Actin exists in two principal forms, globular, monomeric (G) actin, and filamentous polymeric (F) actin. The assembly and disassembly of actin filaments, and also their organization into functional networks, is regulated by a variety of actin-binding proteins (ABPs). Phosphorylation may also be important for regulating actin assembly and interaction with ABPs. In Dictyostelium, phosphorylation of Tyr-53 occurs in response to cell stress and this phosphorylation may alter actin polymerization. In B cells, SHP-1 tyrosine dephosphorylation of actin leads to actin filament depolymerization following BCR stimulation.

Western blot analysis of mouse C2C12 cells untreated (lanes 1 & 3), or treated with pervanadate (1 mM) for 30 min (lanes 2 & 4). The blot was probed with anti-Actin (N-terminal) antibody (lanes 1 & 2) or anti-Actin (Tyr-53) antibody (lanes 3 & 4).

Formalin fixed, citric acid treated parafin sections of E18 mouse skeletal muscle. Sections were probed with anti-Actin (AM2021) then anti-Mouse:HRP before detection using DAB. (Images provided by Carl Hobbs and Dr. Pat Doherty at King's College London).



Mouse monoclonal and rabbit polyclonal antibodies are supplied in phosphate-buffered saline, 50% glycerol, 1 mg/ml BSA, and 0.05% sodium azide. The secondary reagents are supplied in the same buffer without azide. Store all at –20°C. Stable for 1 year.

The products are are safely shipped at ambient temperature for both domestic and international shipments. Each product is guaranteed to match the specifications as indicated on the corresponding technical data sheet. Please store at -20C upon arrival for long term storage.



*All molecular weights (MW) are confirmed by comparison to Bio-Rad Rainbow Markers and to western blot mobilities of known proteins with similar MW.
