The N-terminal decapeptide of alpha-smooth muscle actin.
This antibody reacts with smooth muscle cells of blood vessels and parenchymal tissue of intestine, testis and ovary. This antibody strongly crossreacts with alphasmooth muscle actin in a variety of mammalian and non-mammalian species.
The antibody is conjugated with FITC at a ratio 6 Moles of Fluorescein to 1 Mole of antibody. Maximum excitation of FITC occurs at wavelength 492 nm, and maximum emission occurs at wavelenght 520 nm.

ab8211 staining alpha smooth muscle Actin in SV40LT-SMC cells. The cells were fixed with 100% methanol (5 min), permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 for 5 minutes and then blocked with 1% BSA/10% normal goat serum/0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h. The cells were then incubated overnight at +4°C with ab8211 at a 1/100 dilution (shown in green) and ab195889, Mouse monoclonal to alpha Tubulin (Alexa Fluor® 594), at a 1/250 dilution (shown in red). Nuclear DNA was labelled with DAPI (shown in blue).
Image was taken with a confocal microscope (Leica-Microsystems, TCS SP8).
This product also gave a positive signal under the same testing conditions in SV40LT-SMC cells fixed with 4% formaldehyde (10 min).
