Long descriptionAmong the six actin isoforms described in mammals, two are found in virtually all cells (β- and γ-cytoplasmic), two are detected in smooth muscle cells (α- and γ-smooth muscle) and two are present in striated muscles, one predominantly in skeletal (α-skeletal) and one in cardiac (α-cardiac) muscle cells. These actin isoforms differ slightly in their N-terminus, but the sequence of each of these actins is highly conserved in higher vertebRates. Alpha- muscle actin is present in striated as well as smooth muscle cells, and in pathological tissues derived therefrom. It has for example been detected in several types of muscle derived tumors, and also been shown to appear in stress fibers of fibroblastic cells involved in contractile phenomena such as wound healing and fibrocontractive diseases.
Antibody come fromHHF35 is a Mouse monoclonal IgG1 antibody derived by fusion of NS-1 Mouse myeloma cells with spleen cells from a BALB/c Mouse immunized with an SDS-extracted protein fraction from Human myocardium.
Other descriptionEach vial contains 50 ul 1 mg/ml purified monoclonal antibody in PBS containing 0.09% sodium azide.

Antigen-antibody binding interactionMouse anti actin alpha-muscle Antibody
Antibody is raised inMouse
Antibody's reacts withChicken,Human,Monkey,Rabbit,Rat,Swine,Zebrafish
Antibody's reacts with these speciesThe epitope recognized by α-SM1 is highly conserved. The antibody therefore cross-reacts with many species including protochordates, lower craniates and mammals.
Antibody's specificityHHF35 reacts with both α-muscle and γ-smooth muscle actin, and therefore reacts with skeletal muscle, cardiac muscle, vascular and visceral smooth muscle cells, pericytes and myoepithelial cells. It is also reactive in myofibroblasts. It does not react with epithelial, endothelial, neural or normal connective tissue cells when applied under the proper conditions to these tissue sections.
Research interestCardiovascular,Cytoskeleton,Stem cell research
ApplicationElectron microscopy,ELISA,Immunocytochemistry,Immunohistochemistry (frozen),Immunohistochemistry (paraffin),Western blotting
Antibody's suited forHHF35 is useful for immunohistochemistry on frozen and paraffin-embedded tissues preserved in several types of fixatives (see reference 1), immunoblotting, immuno-electron microscopy and ELISA. For immunohistochemical applications to paraffin embedded tissues it is recommended to dilute the antibody in PBS containing 50 mM EDTA. Optimal antibody dilution should be determined by titration; recommended range is 1:200 – 1:1000 for immunohistochemistry with avidin-biotinylated Horseradish peroxidase complex (ABC) as detection reagent, and 1:1000 – 1:5000 for immunoblotting applications.
StorageStore at 4°C, or in small aliquots at -20°C.

DescriptionThe Mouse anti actin alpha-muscle is a α- or alpha protein sometimes glycoprotein present in blood.This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
TestMouse or mice from the Mus musculus species are used for production of mouse monoclonal antibodies or mabs and as research model for humans in your lab. Mouse are mature after 40 days for females and 55 days for males. The female mice are pregnant only 20 days and can give birth to 10 litters of 6-8 mice a year. Transgenic, knock-out, congenic and inbread strains are known for C57BL/6, A/J, BALB/c, SCID while the CD-1 is outbred as strain.
