Peptide comprising the first 10 amino acids of alpha-smooth muscle actin with an acetylated N-terminus coupled to keyhole limpet hemocyanin via the C-terminal cysteine (Ac-EEEDSTALVC).
Reacts exclusively with alpha-smooth muscle actin, which is typical for vascular and visceral smooth muscle cells, but which is also present in myofibroblasts. The epitope is Ac-EEED, and is highly conserved. Therefore, the antibody cross-reacts with many species including protochordates, lower craniates and mammals.
Short term: store at 4°C. Long term: store at -20°C. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
This antibody carries the LSBio 100% Guarantee.
