Target

  • Function

    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 ACTA2 are the cause of aortic aneurysm familial thoracic type 6 (AAT6) [MIM:611788]. AATs are characterized by permanent dilation of the thoracic aorta usually due to degenerative changes in the aortic wall. They are primarily associated with a characteristic histologic appearance known as 'medial necrosis' or 'Erdheim cystic medial necrosis' in which there is degeneration and fragmentation of elastic fibers, loss of smooth muscle cells, and an accumulation of basophilic ground substance.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the actin family.
  • Cellular localization

Images

  • Overlay histogram showing HeLa cells stained with ab210128 (red line). The cells were fixed with 4% formaldehyde (10 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Triton X-100 for 15 min, blocked with Image-iT® FX Signal Enhancer for 30 min at 22ºC and then blocked with 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum for 1 hr at 22ºC. Cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab210128, 1/50 dilution) for 30 min at 22ºC.

    Isotype control antibody (black line) was rabbit IgG (monoclonal) Alexa Fluor® 405 (ab208150) used at the same concentration and conditions as the primary antibody. Unlabelled sample (blue line) was also used as a control.

    Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a 50mW violet laser (405nm) and 450/50 bandpass filter.

    This antibody gave a positive signal in HeLa cells fixed with 80% methanol (5 min)/permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Triton X-100 for 15 min used under the same conditions.
