Recognizes human Filamentous actin (F-actin). The binds to the N-terminal region of actin, but not to the extreme N-terminal 40 amino acids. In tissue sections the stains the cytoplasm of macrophages strongly, and gives granular, localized nuclear staining of all cell types.

Actins are highly conserved proteins that are involved in cell motility, structure and integrity, processes that are crucial for tissue development and the development of organism. The actin cytoskeleton is one of the principal drivers of cell motility and is capable of responding to complex signaling cascades. Recent evidence suggests that it may play key roles in regulating apoptosis and aging. Beta actin is one of six different actin isoforms which have been identified. Like GAPDH, beta-actin is constitutively expressed at high levels in almost all tissues and cell lines making it ideal for use as a loading control marker in immunoblots.

How a cell "reaches" out for help By Christina Towers, PhD. Parkinson's disease is a debilitating neurodegenerative condition defined by the accumulation of alpha-synuclein-containing (alpha-SYN) intra-cytoplasmic inclusions, called Lewy bodies. The... Read full blog post.
