α-actinin from chicken gizzard

General description

α-Actinin is a 100kDa actin-binding protein that is found in muscle as well as non-muscle cells. In smooth muscles, α-actinin is present in dense bodies and plaques whereas in normal skeletal muscles, it is associated with z-discs that define muscle sarcomeres. Rabbit anti-α-actinin antibody stains α-actinin in cell cultures using indirect immunofluorescence. The antibody reacts best with cultured chicken fibroblasts, however, adequate labeling may also be obtained with cells of other species. In an immunoblot assay, the antiserum specifically stains the α-actinin band.


Anti-Actinin antibody was used to detect actinin in human mesangial cells. Cells were first grown on glass cover slips, fixed in cold methanol and permeabilized with 3.5% paraformaldehyde/0.1% Tween-20 for 5 min at room temperature.

Applications in which this antibody has been used successfully, and the associated peer-reviewed papers, are given below.
