Synthetic peptide corresponding to beta Actin (N terminal) conjugated to keyhole limpet haemocyanin. Sequence:
Actins are highly conserved proteins that are involved in various types of cell motility and are ubiquitously expressed in all eukaryotic cells.
Involvement in disease
Defects in ACTB are a cause of dystonia juvenile-onset (DYTJ) [MIM:607371]. DYTJ is a form of dystonia with juvenile onset. Dystonia is defined by the presence of sustained involuntary muscle contraction, often leading to abnormal postures. DYTJ patients manifest progressive, generalized, dopa-unresponsive dystonia, developmental malformations and sensory hearing loss.

Proteins were loaded onto a 10% SDS-polyacrylamide gel. After gel electrophoresis, blots were subsequently probed with primary antibodies anti- IL-6 at 1:1000 (ab6672), anti- IL-17 at 1:3000, anti-TGF-β at 1:1000 (ab66043). For detection, horseradish peroxidase-conjugated secondary anti-rabbit antibody was used followed by enhanced chemiluminescence development.
Normalization of results was ensured by running parallel western blots with β-actin antibody at 1:25,000 (ab49900). The optical density was quantified using an image densitometer. The data are presented as a percentage of target protein relative to β-actin. A value of p<0.05 is considered significant.
