α-Actin Antibody (a-SM1) is a mouse monoclonal IgG2a (kappa light chain) provided at 200 µg/ml
raised against an N-terminal decapeptide of smooth muscle α-Actin of human origin
recommended for detection of smooth muscle α-Actin of mouse, rat and human origin by WB, IP, IF, IHC(P) and ELISA; non cross-reactive with actin from fibroblasts (β-and γ-cytoplasmic), myocardium (α-myocardial), and striated muscle (α-sarcomeric)
available conjugated to agarose for IP
See m-IgGκ BP-HRP (mouse IgGκ binding protein-HRP), our highly recommended recombinant alternative to conventional secondary anti-mouse IgG reagents.
See α-Actin (1A4): sc-32251 for α-Actin antibody conjugates, including AC, HRP, FITC, PE, Alexa Fluor® 488, 594, 647, 680 and 790.

All eukaryotic cells express Actin, which often constitutes as much as 50% of total cellular protein. Actin filaments can form both stable and labile structures and are crucial components of microvilli and the contractile apparatus of muscle cells. While lower eukaryotes, such as yeast, have only one Actin gene, higher eukaryotes have several isoforms encoded by a family of genes. At least six types of Actin are present in mammalian tissues and fall into three classes. α-Actin expression is limited to various types of muscle, whereas β-Actin and γ-Actin are the principle constituents of filaments in other tissues. Members of the small GTPase family regulate the organization of the Actin cytoskeleton. Rho controls the assembly of Actin stress fibers and focal adhesion. Rac regulates Actin filament accumulation at the plasma membrane. Cdc42 stimulates formation of filopodia.
