Properties

Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab68167 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/1000 - 1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 103 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 103 kDa).
IP 1/20 - 1/40.
IHC-P 1/100 - 1/250. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.

See IHC antigen retrieval protocols.

  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for Flow Cyt or ICC/IF.
  • Target

    • Function
      F-actin cross-linking protein which is thought to anchor actin to a variety of intracellular structures. This is a bundling protein.
    • Tissue specificity
      Expressed in both skeletal and cardiac muscle.
    • Involvement in disease
      Defects in ACTN2 are the cause of cardiomyopathy dilated type 1AA (CMD1AA) [MIM:612158]. Dilated cardiomyopathy is a disorder characterized by ventricular dilation and impaired systolic function, resulting in congestive heart failure and arrhythmia. Patients are at risk of premature death.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the alpha-actinin family.
      Contains 1 actin-binding domain.
      Contains 2 CH (calponin-homology) domains.
      Contains 2 EF-hand domains.
      Contains 4 spectrin repeats.
    • Cellular localization
      Cytoplasm > myofibril > sarcomere > Z line. Colocalizes with MYOZ1 and FLNC at the Z-lines of skeletal muscle.
