* Required Fields

Product name Anti-Beta Actin antibody
Short Description Rabbit polyclonal antibody to beta actin.
Description Beta actin is a member of the actin protein family and is encoded by the ACTB gene. It localises to the cytoplasm where it acts as a cellular cytoskeleton, and is also involved in pathways at the blood-brain barrier, immune cell transmigration, regulation of actin cytoskeleton by Rho GTPases and development Slit-Robo signalling.
Applications ELISA, IHC, WB
Dilution range WB 1:1000-1:4000
IHC 1:100-1:300
ELISA 1:20000
Specificity Beta actin polyclonal antibody detects endogenous levels of beta actin protein.

Function Actins are highly conserved proteins that are involved in various types of cell motility and are ubiquitously expressed in all eukaryotic cells.
Post-translational Modifications MICALs (MICAL1, MICAL2 or MICAL3) will oxidise amino acids Met-44 and Met-47 to form methionine sulfoxide, which in turn promotes the depolymerisation of actin filaments. MICAL1 and MICAL2 will produce the (R)-S-oxide form, which is reverted by MSRB1 and MSRB2, which promote actin repolymerization.
Monomethylation at Lys-84 (K84me1) regulates actin-myosin interaction and actomyosin-dependent processes. Demethylation by ALKBH4 is required for maintaining actomyosin dynamics supporting normal cleavage furrow ingression during cytokinesis and cell migration.
Monomeric actin is cross-linked by V.cholerae toxins RtxA and VgrG1 during infection. Bacterial toxins mediate the cross-link between Lys-50 of one monomer and Glu-270 of another actin monomer, resulting in formation of highly toxic actin oligomers that cause cell rounding. The toxin can be highly efficient at very low concentrations by acting on formin homology family proteins. Toxic actin oligomers bind with high affinity to formins and adversely affect both nucleation and elongation abilities of formins, causing their potent inhibition in both profilin-dependent and independent manners.
