FAQs for beta-Actin Antibody (NBP1-47423H). (Showing 1 - 4 of 4 FAQ).
Why is beta actin used as a loading control in blotting ?
Beta actin is a highly-expressed protein found in all cells, and is considered a house keeping protein whose expression is necessary for any cell's proper functioning. For this reason it is used as a loading control to confirm that the same amount of total protein is loaded in each lane of an SDS-PAGE gel so that appropriate comparisons can be made between the actual proteins of interest in different samples.
Are the beta-Actin antibodies validated in Simple Western?
Yes, we offer a few beta actin antibodies that have been tested in Simple Western: NBP1-47423, NB600-501, NB600-532, NB600-503, and NB100-56874.
Do Beta-Actin antibodies come in lyophilized format?
ACTB antibodies like MAB8969 AND MAB8929 come in lyophilized form.
What the theoretical molecular weight for Beta-Actin antibodies?
The TMW of beta Actin antibodies is approximately 40 - 42 kDa.
Beta-Actin's Role in Neuronal Plasticity Beta-Actin is a highly conserved protein involved in cell growth, cytoskeletal and extracellular support structures and cell migration. Because beta-Actin is ubiquitously expressed in all eukaryotic cells, it is frequently used as a loading contro... Read full blog post.
