Background for Actin:
Actin, a highly conserved protein, is a major component of both the cytoskeletal and contractile structures
in the cell types. It varies in amount, being related to the type of differentiation and to the functional state
of cells and tissues. The actins exhibit over 90% sequence homology, but each isoform has a unique
NH2-terminal sequence. The isoforms are comprised of three alpha-actin, one beta-actin, two gammaactin. Because the amino acid sequence of the C-terminal is the same for almost all actins, this antibody
has been raised using a synthetic peptide corresponding to the C-terminal 11 residues.
