The following reagents are used to generate the images below.Boster recommends Enhanced Chemiluminescent Kit with anti-Mouse IgG (EK1001) for Western blot, and HRP Conjugated anti-Mouse IgG Super Vision Assay Kit (SV0001-1) for IHC(P) and IHC(F).
Images And Assay Conditions
Figure 1. Western blot analysis of Alpha-Actinin using anti- Alpha-Actinin antibody (MA1104).
Electrophoresis was performed on a 5-20% SDS-PAGE gel at 70V (Stacking gel) / 90V (Resolving gel) for 2-3 hours. The sample well of each lane was loaded with 50ug of sample under reducing conditions.
Lane 1: rat cardiac muscle tissue lysates,
Lane 2: rat skeletal muscle tissue lysates,
Lane 3: mouse cardiac muscle tissue lysates,
Lane 4: mouse skeletal muscle tissue lysates,
Lane 5: human placenta tissue lysate.
After Electrophoresis, proteins were transferred to a Nitrocellulose membrane at 150mA for 50-90 minutes. Blocked the membrane with 5% Non-fat Milk/ TBS for 1.5 hour at RT. The membrane was incubated with mouse anti- Alpha-Actinin antigen affinity purified monoclonal antibody (Catalog # MA1104) at 0.5 μg/mL overnight at 4°C, then washed with TBS-0.1%Tween 3 times with 5 minutes each and probed with a Biotin Conjugated goat anti-mouse IgG secondary antibody at a dilution of 1:10000 for 1.5 hour at RT. The signal is developed using an Enhanced Chemiluminescent detection (ECL) kit (Catalog # EK1001) with Tanon 5200 system. A specific band was detected for Alpha-Actinin at approximately 103KD. The expected band size for Alpha-Actinin is at 103KD.
Figure 2. IHC analysis of Alpha-Actinin using anti- Alpha-Actinin antibody (MA1104).
Alpha-Actinin was detected in paraffin-embedded section of mouse lung tissues. Heat mediated antigen retrieval was performed in citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution) for 20 mins. The tissue section was blocked with 10% goat serum. The tissue section was then incubated with 1.5μg/ml mouse anti- Alpha-Actinin Antibody (MA1104) overnight at 4°C. Biotinylated goat anti-mouse IgG was used as secondary antibody and incubated for 30 minutes at 37°C. The tissue section was developed using Strepavidin-Biotin-Complex (SABC)(Catalog # SA1021) with DAB as the chromogen.
Figure 3. IHC analysis of Alpha-Actinin using anti- Alpha-Actinin antibody (MA1104).
Alpha-Actinin was detected in paraffin-embedded section of human mammary cancer tissues. Heat mediated antigen retrieval was performed in citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution) for 20 mins. The tissue section was blocked with 10% goat serum. The tissue section was then incubated with 1.5μg/ml mouse anti- Alpha-Actinin Antibody (MA1104) overnight at 4°C. Biotinylated goat anti-mouse IgG was used as secondary antibody and incubated for 30 minutes at 37°C. The tissue section was developed using Strepavidin-Biotin-Complex (SABC)(Catalog # SA1021) with DAB as the chromogen.

|Background||Alpha-actinin was initially isolated from rabbit skeletal muscle as a factor that induces the gelation of F-actin and promotes the superprecipitation of actomyosin. Alpha actinins are actin-binding proteins that carry out different purposes in different different cell types. In myofibrillar cells, alpha-actinin constitutes a major component of Z-discs in striated muscle and of the functionally analogous dense bodies and dense plaques in smooth muscle. Alpha-actinin(alpha A) shares structural homology with spectrin and dystrophin.|
