Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Affinity Purified IH IF
Actin is a highly conserved skeletal protein which is in both muscle and nonmuscle cells. The mammalian tissues express at least 6 unique actin isotypes. Alpha isotype is found exclusively in muscle cells including alpha-skeletal, alpha-cardiac, and alpha and gamma smooth muscle actin. Beta and gamma nonmuscular actins have been observed in non-muscle cells.
Catalog #A0760-26
