Clone Host Grade Applications
Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified B IP IC IF
Beta actin is one of six different actin isoforms which have been identified. Actins are highly conserved proteins that are involved in cell motility, structure and integrity. Because beta-actin is ubiquitously expressed in all eukaryotic cells, it is frequently used as a loading control for assays involving protein detection, such as Western blotting. Antibodies to beta-actin provide a specific and useful tool in studying the intracellular distribution of beta-actin and the static and dynamic aspects of the cytoskeleton.
Catalog #A0760-40A
ApplicationsSuitable for use in Western Blot, Immunocytochemistry and Immunoprecipitation and Immunofluorescence. Other applications not tested.
Recommended DilutionWestern Blot: 1:500-1:2500. Can be blocked with beta Actin peptide (aa2-15). At higher concentrations, other bands can be detected. Note: May be used as a cell extract loading control.
Immunofluorescence: 1:50.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Positive ControlHeLa whole cell lysate and 3T3 cells (mouse).
Storage and StabilityMay be stored at 4°C for short-term only. For long-term storage, store 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.
