MA1-24913 detects Caldesmon from human, rat, gerbil, porcine, and turkey samples.
MA1-24913 has been successfully used in immunofluorescence, and Western blot procedures.
The MA1-24913 immunogen is purified chicken gizzard caldesmon.
Caldesmon is a developmentally regulated protein involved in smooth muscle and non muscle contraction. Two closely related variants of human caldesmon have been identified which differ in their electrophorectic mobility and cellular distribution. The h caldesmon variant (120 - 150 kDa) is predominantly expressed in smooth muscle whereas l caldesmon (70 - 80 kDa) is found in non-muscle tissue and cells. Neither of the two variants has been detected in skeletal muscle.
