Ultra pure Actin, Alpha Cardiac Muscle 1, Native Protein is purified from bovine heart and has a molecular mass of 43,000 dalton.


Alpha-cardiac actin belongs to the actin family which is comprised of three main groups of actin isoforms, alpha, beta, and gamma. The alpha actins are found in muscle tissues and are a major constituent of the contractile apparatus. Defects in the cardiac actin have been associated with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (IDC) and familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (FHC).

Other Names

Actin alpha cardiac muscle 1, Alpha-cardiac actin, ACTC1, ACTC, UniProtKB - Q3ZC07 (ACTC_BOVIN)


Bovine heart.


Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder. The protein was lyophilized from a 1 mg/ml solution containing 10mM Tris-acetate buffer pH 8.0, 0.2 mM CaCl2, 0.2 mM ATP, 1 mM DTT and 0.5% SDS.


Greater than 98.0%.


It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Cardiac Actin in sterile 18MΩ-cm H2O not less than 100 µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.


At ambient temperature. Upon receipt, store the product at the temperature recommended below.


Lyophilized Cardiac-Actin, although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution, Cardiac Actin should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.


  • Protein standard in 1D and 2D SDS gelelectrophoresis
