Actin has a molecular weight of 42 kDa.
While actin should run as a 42 kDa band when detected by Western blotting, there are recent observations that cleavage products can be seen in cells undergoing apoptosis. Initial cleavage gives a band at 41 kDa, which may appear as a doublet on the blot. In addition, further cleavage results in a major band at 30 kDa and a small band at 14 kDa which have been shown to be cleavage products due to the action of interleukin 1 -converting enzyme. This may explain the detection of smaller bands when blotting with this antibody. This banding pattern may be detected with other actin antibodies as well. Kayalar, C., et al., Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci., USA, 93:2234-2238, (1996).
