Additional Information
Gene Name fragment of Actin
Target/Specificity Synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acid residues from the C terminal region of the 32-kDa actin fragment.
Dilution WB~~ 1:1000
Format neat serum.
Antibody Specificity Specific for the ~ 32 kDa fractin protein in Western blots with no reactivity to intact actin. There is often a ladder of smaller bands in cells or culture or in vivo preparations due to further degradation by other proteases.
StorageMaintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
PrecautionsFractin A marker of apoptosis Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.

Fractin (fragment of actin) is a caspase-specific cleavage product of actin and serves as a novel marker of apoptosis-related events. The antibody has been shown to detect the processes and cell bodies of degenerating neurons and plaque-associated microglia in Alzheimer’s disease (Yang et al., 1998). It has recently been reported that Fractin may have a functional role in apoptotic signaling in oligodendrocytes (Schulz, R., et al., Glia, 2009, in press).
