MA1-26017 detects alpha smooth muscle Actin from human, mouse, rat, rabbit, bovine, baboon samples. It does not react with fibroblasts, striated muscle, or myocardium.
MA1-26017 has been successfully used in immunohistochemistry (paraffin/frozen), and Immunoflourescence procedures. Positive control of smooth muscle or leiomyosarcoma suggested.
The MA1-26017 immunogen is a synthetic peptide corresponding to the N-terminal residues M(1) C E E E D S T A L(10) of alpha smooth muscle Actin.
Store at 4°C short term. For extended storage, store at -20°C, avoiding freeze/thaw cycles.
Stains smooth muscle cells in vessel walls, gut walls, and myometrium. Myoepithelial cells in breat and salivary gland are also stained. This antibody reacts with tumors arising from smooth muscles and myoepithlial cells.
