MA5-15739-D488 detects beta actin from human, mouse, rat, rabbit, and chicken samples.
MA5-15739-D488 has been successfully used in immunofluorescence. DyLight 488 has an excitation/emission of 493/518 nm.
For visualization of actin filaments by immunofluorescence, fixation and permeabilization with methanol is required.
Beta-actin is one of six different actin isoforms which have been identified. Actins are highly conserved proteins that are involved in cell motility, structure and integrity. Because beta-actin is ubiquitously expressed in all eukaryotic cells, it is frequently used as a loading control for assays involving protein detection, such as Western blotting. Antibodies to beta-actin provide a specific and useful tool in studying the intracellular distribution of beta-actin and the static and dynamic aspects of the cytoskeleton.
