General description

Actopaxin is a member of actin binding proteins that include beta-parvin/affixin and gamma-parvin. Actopaxin is known to associate with F-actin and paxillin LD motifs LD1 and LD4. This protein also directly binds to serine/threonine integrin-linked kinase (ILK). Studies have reported that actopaxin may be involved in integrin-dependent remodeling of the actin cytoskeleton during cell adhesion, motility and division.
Rabbit anti-actopaxin recognizes actopaxin (42 kDa). Staining of actopaxin in immunoblotting is specifically inhibited with actopaxin immunizing peptide (mouse, amino acids 35-53).


synthetic peptide corresponding to the N-terminal region of mouse actopaxin (amino acids 35-53). The sequence is identical in human actopaxin and has considerable homology (~70%) with β-parvin/affixin, but no homology with γ-parvin.


Actopaxin was detected in HEK 293 cell lysates at 42 kDa by western blot using rabbit anti-actopaxin antibody at a 1:1000 dilution. In these cells, actopaxin associated with an ILK complex.

Applications in which this antibody has been used successfully, and the associated peer-reviewed papers, are given below.
Immunofluorescence (1 paper)

Rabbit anti-actopaxin can also be used for protein microaarays.
