Data Examples

Western Blot Detection of Human, Mouse, and Rat a-Cardiac Actin antibody by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of Human, Mouse, and Rat alpha -Cardiac Actin by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line, A431 human epithelial carcinoma cell line, C2C12 mouse myoblast cell line, and C6 rat glioma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat a-Cardiac Actin Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB93081) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). A specific band was detected for a-Cardiac Actin at approximately 40 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Immunohistochemistry View Larger

alpha -Cardiac Actin in Human Heart. alpha -Cardiac Actin was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human heart using Mouse Anti-Human/Mouse/Rat alpha -Cardiac Actin Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB93081) at 1.7 µg/mL for 1 hour at room temperature followed by incubation with the Anti-Mouse IgG VisUCyte™ HRP Polymer Antibody (VC001). Before incubation with the primary antibody, tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (CTS013). Tissue was stained using DAB (brown) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to cardiomyocytes. Staining was performed using our protocol for IHC Staining with VisUCyte HRP Polymer Detection Reagents.

Background: alpha-Cardiac Actin

Actin, alpha cardiac muscle 1 (ACTC1) is a 377 aa cytoskeletal filament in cardiac muscle which interacts with the 50-KDa domain of the myosin motor domain in cardiac muscle contraction. Actin is highly conserved across species, and differs from skeletal muscle actin (ACTA1) by only four amino acids. Mutations in the ACTC1 gene are linked to familial hypertrophy cardiomyopathy, atrial septal defects, arrhythmia, and chronic inflammatory cardiomyopathy.
