Monoclonal Mouse Affinity Purified B IP IH
Actin, an ubiquitous protein in eukaryotes, is the major component of the cytoskeleton. At least six isoforms are known in mammals. Nonmuscle beta- and gamma-actin, also known as cytoplasmic actin, are predominantly expressed in nonmuscle cells, controlling cell structure and motility. Alpha-cardiac and alpha-skeletal actin are expressed in striated cardiac and skeletal muscles, respectively; two smooth muscle actins, alpha- and gamma-actin, are found primarily in vascular smooth muscle and enteric smooth muscle, respectively. These actin isoforms regulate contractile potentials for muscle cells. Actin exists mainly as a fibrous polymer, F-actin. In response to cytoskeletal reorganizing signals during processes such as cytokinesis, endocytosis, or stress, cofilin promotes fragmentation and depolymerization of F-actin, resulting in an increase in the monomeric globular form, G-actin. The Arp2/3 complex stabilizes F-actin fragments and promotes formation of new actin filaments. It has been reported that actin is hyperphosphorylated in primary breast tumors. Cleavage of actin under apoptotic conditions has been observed in vitro and in cardiac and skeletal muscle. Actin cleavage by caspase-3 may accelerate ubiquitin/proteosome dependent muscle proteolysis.
