Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Ascites IH
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 #A0760-27C
ApplicationsSuitable for use in Immunohistochemistry. Other applications have not been tested.
Recommended DilutionImmunohistochemistry: Formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded human tissue sections, cryostat sections(1), or cell smears
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Positive Control Leiomyosarcoma
Storage and StabilityMay be stored at 4°C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, aliquot and add glycerol (40-50%). Freeze at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20°C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
