beta-Actin Antibody (AC-15) Summary

Slightly modified Beta-cytoplasmic actin N-terminal peptide, Ac-Asp-Asp-Asp-Ile-Ala-Ala-Leu-Val-Ile-Asp-Asn-Gly-Ser-Gly-Lys, conjugated to KLH.
N-terminus of the beta isoform of actin.
Beta-actin (AC-15). In staining of chicken gizzard ultrathin tissue cryosections, the antibody labels the dense bodies and longitudinal channels linking consecutive dense bodies that are also occupied by desmin and the membrane-associated dense plaque. It does not stain adult cardiac and skeletal muscles except for traces due to contaminations of the sample with non-muscle cells, or if embryonic tissue is being used.
Protein A or G purified

FAQs for beta-Actin Antibody (NB110-67828). (Showing 1 - 4 of 4 FAQs).

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Do Beta-Actin antibodies come in lyophilized format?
    • ACTB antibodies like MAB8969 AND MAB8929 come in lyophilized form.
  4. What the theoretical molecular weight for Beta-Actin antibodies?
    • The TMW of beta Actin antibodies is approximately 40 - 42 kDa.
