General description

In staining of chicken gizzard ultrathin tissue cryosections, the antibody labels the dense bodies and longitudinal channels linking consecutive dense bodies that are also occupied by desmin and the membrane-associated dense plaque. It does not stain adult cardiac and skeletal muscles except for traces due to contaminations of the sample with non-muscle cells, or if embryonic tissue is being used.
Monoclonal Anti-b-Actin (mouse IgG1 isotype) is derived from the AC-15 hybridoma produced by the fusion of mouse myeloma cells and splenocytes from an immunized mouse. ACTB (actin beta) gene codes for β-actin. It is a cytoskeletal housekeeping protein. It is present in the cytoplasm. This gene is located on human chromosome 7p22.1. Actin is a eukaryotic protein. It belongs to the major cytoskeletal protein family.

Immunogen

Biochem/physiol Actions

Actins is a eukaryotic protein. It belongs to the major cytoskeletal protein family and majorly associated with cell motility. It is ubiquitously present in cytoplasm and involved in a myriad of cellular process including locomotion, secretion, cytoplasmic streaming, phagocytosis, and cytokinesis. It is expressed in mammals and birds and at least six isoforms have been identified.

β-Actin modulates cell growth, migration and the G-actin pool. Mutations in ACTB leads to pleiotropic developmental disorder.

Physical form

Solution in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.4, containing 1% bovine serum albumin and 15 mM sodium azide.
