Total lysates (15 µg protein) from HeLa, NIH3T3, rat brain and zebra fish were resolved by electrophoresis (4-20% Tris-glycine gel), transferred to nitrocellulose, and probed with 1:2000 diluted (0.1 µg/mL) purified anti-β-actin antibody (upper). Proteins were visualized using an HRP anti rat-IgG secondary antibody (cat# 405405) or HRP Donkey anti-rabbit IgG Antibody (cat# 406401) for GAPDH and chemiluminescence detection. GAPDH (poly6314, cat# 631401) antibody was used as a loading control (lower). Lane M: MW ladder.

    Western blot of purified anti-β-actin antibody (clone W16197A). Lane 1: Molecular weight marker; Lane 2: 20 µg of Drosophila head lysate; Lane 3: 20 µg of Drosophila S2 (embryonic) cell lysate. The blot was incubated with 0.1 µg/mL of the primary antibody overnight at 4°C, followed by incubation with HRP-labeled goat anti-rat IgG (Cat. No. 405405). Enhanced chemiluminescence was used as the detection system.

Description

β-actin is a ubiquitously expressed and highly conserved 42 kD cytoplasmic protein involved in cell motility. This critical cytoskeletal component can be disrupted by drugs such as cytochalasin. Because β-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).
