Anti-beta-Actin antibody

* Required Fields

Product name Anti-beta-Actin antibody
Short Description Rabbit monoclonal against beta-Actin
Description Beta (beta) actin is a member of highly conserved actins that are involved in cell motility, structure, and integrity. Beta actin exists in two forms in the cytoplasm: globular actin monomer (G-actin) with a molecular weight of approximately 42 kDa, and the fibrous polymer (F-actin). Due to its ubiquitous expression in eukaryotic cells, beta actin is widely used as a loading control for western blotting, which guides the user to identify the cell integrity. Defects in beta actin result in dystonia juvenile-onset (DYTJ), which often leads to abnormal posture, dopa-unresponsive dystonia, developmental malformations and loss of hearing. Studies have also demonstrated the association of actin with malignancies such as breast cancer and lymphoma.

Post-translational Modifications PTM: ISGylated. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:16139798}.; PTM: Oxidation of Met-44 and Met-47 by MICALs (MICAL1, MICAL2 or MICAL3) to form methionine sulfoxide promotes actin filament depolymerization. MICAL1 and MICAL2 produce the (R)-S-oxide form. The (R)-S-oxide form is reverted by MSRB1 and MSRB2, which promote actin repolymerization . {ECO:0000250}.; PTM: 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. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:23673617}.; PTM: (Microbial infection) Monomeric actin is cross-linked by V.cholerae toxins RtxA and VgrG1 in case of 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 (PubMed:19015515). 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 (PubMed:26228148). {ECO:0000305|PubMed:19015515, ECO:0000305|PubMed:26228148}.
Cellular Localization Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton {ECO:0000269|PubMed:17289661}. Localized in cytoplasmic mRNP granules containing untranslated mRNAs.
