Actins are highly conserved proteins that are involved in various types of cell motility and are ubiquitously expressed in all eukaryotic cells. The ACTA1 gene encodes skeletal muscle alpha-actin, the principal actin isoform in adult skeletal muscle, which interacts with a variety of proteins to produce the force for muscle contraction. There is only the N-termninal 8 amino acids difference among the actin family members. This antibody is specific to the ACTA1. It does not cross-react with other actin isoforms.
