Images And Assay Conditions

Figure 1. Western blot analysis of Tropomyosin(Sarcomeric) using anti- Tropomyosin(Sarcomeric) antibody (MA1097).
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 heart tissue lysates,
Lane 2: rat skeletal muscle tissue lysates,
Lane 3: mouse heart tissue lysates,
Lane 4: mouse skeletal muscle tissue lysates,
Lane 5: human Hela whole cell lysates,
Lane 6: human U2OS whole cell lysates,
Lane 7: human A549 whole cell lysates,
Lane 8: human Caco-2 whole cell lysates,
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- Tropomyosin(Sarcomeric) antigen affinity purified monoclonal antibody (Catalog # MA1097) 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 goat anti-mouse IgG-HRP 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 Tropomyosin(Sarcomeric) at approximately 39KD. The expected band size for Tropomyosin(Sarcomeric) is at 33KD.

Protein Function Binds to actin filaments in muscle and non-muscle cells. Plays a central role, in association with the troponin complex, in the calcium dependent regulation of vertebrate striated muscle contraction. Smooth muscle contraction is regulated by interaction with caldesmon. In non-muscle cells is implicated in stabilizing cytoskeleton actin filaments.

Background Tropomyosin is an alpha-helical, parallel, two-chain coiled coil which binds along the length of actin filaments in both muscle and non-muscle cells. This gene associates N-terminus to C-terminus to form a continuous strand along both sides of the actin filament and regulates its function. Tropomyosin contributes to most, if not all, functions of the actin cytoskeleton, and its role is essential for the viability of a wide range of organisms. The ability of tropomyosin to contribute to the many functions of the actin cytoskeleton is related to the temporal and spatial regulation of expression of tropomyosin isoforms.
