Background of Alpha Actinin 2

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.

Antibody Validation

1 Customer Q&As for Anti-Alpha-Actinin ACTN2 Antibody (Monoclonal, EA-53)


We are currently using anti-Alpha-Actinin antibody (Monoclonal, EA-53) MA1104 for rabbit tissue, and we are satisfied with the IHC results. The species of reactivity given in the datasheet says human, mouse, rabbit, rat. Is it possible that the antibody can work on dog tissues as well?

Asked: 2019-11-08


The anti-Alpha-Actinin antibody (Monoclonal, EA-53) (MA1104) has not been validated for cross reactivity specifically with dog tissues, though there is a good chance of cross reactivity. We have an innovator award program that if you test this antibody and show it works in dog you can get your next antibody for free. Please contact me if I can help you with anything.
