Product Description

Actin is a major component of the cytoskeleton and is present in most cell types. This MAb is highly specific to actin from smooth muscles. Its epitope lies in the first four N-terminal amino acids. This MAb does not stain cardiac or skeletal muscle; however, it does stain myofibroblasts and myoepithelial cells. This antibody could be used together with anti-muscle specific actin and myogenin in making a diagnosis of smooth muscle and skeletal muscle tumors. In most cases of rhabdomyosarcoma, this antibody yields negative results whereas anti-muscle specific actin and myogenin are positive. Leiomyosarcomas are positive only with anti-muscle specific actin and anti-smooth muscle actin and are negative with anti-myogenin.

Application notes

Flow Cytometry (0.5-1 ug/million cells/0.1 mL), Immunofluorescence 0.5-1 ug/mL, Immunohistology formalin-fixed 0.25-0.5 ug/mL for 30 minutes at RT, Optimal dilution for a specific application should be determined by user, Staining of formalin-fixed tissues requires boiling tissue sections in 10 mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0, for 10-20 min followed by cooling at RT for 20 minutes

Positive control

Blood vessels in all tissues, smooth muscle or leiomyosarcoma
