Specifications

Control peptide for A0760-51J, Actin, Pan.
Catalog #A0760-51K
Actin and myosin are the two major cytoskeleton proteins implicated in cellular movement, secretion, phagocytosis, and kinesis. Actin is one of the most conserved cellular protein. At least 6 actin isoforms have been identified by protein sequence analyses. Four actin isoforms represent the differentiation markers of muscle tissues. There are three a-actins a-skeletal, a-cardiac, and a-smooth muscle), one b-actin (b-non-muscle), and two g-actins (g-smooth muscle and g-non-muscle). Actin isoform are ~90% conserved, except in the N-terminal 18aa (50-60%homology). Beta-actin protein and mRNA levels are often used as a reference for comparing changes in cellular protein/mRNA levels by Western or Northern blots.
SourcePurified human actin protein, from 11aa-MAPS peptide, C-terminal.
Molecular Weight 43kD
ApplicationsSuitable for use in Western Blot and Antibody Blocking. Other applications not tested.
Recommended DilutionWestern Blot: 10ul/lane. SDS may crystallize in cold conditions. It should redissolve by warming before taking it from the stock. It should be heated once prior to loading on gels. If the product has been stored for several weeks, then it may be preferable to add 5ul of fresh 2x sample buffer per 10ul of the antibody solution prior to heating and loading on gels.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Storage and StabilityMay be stored at 4°C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20°C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
