ZooMAb antibodies represent an entirely new generation of recombinant monoclonal antibodies.
Each ZooMAb antibody is manufactured using our proprietary recombinant expression system, purified to homogeneity, and precisely dispensed to produce robust and highly reproducible lot-to-lot consistency. Only top-performing clones are released for use by researchers. Each antibody is validated for high specificity and affinity across multiple applications, including its most commonly used application. ZooMAb antibodies are reliably available and ready to ship when you need them.

Clone 6L12 is a ZooMAb rabbit recombinant monoclonal antibody that specifically detects beta-Actin in multiple species. It targets an epitope within 16 amino acids from the N-terminal region.
KLH-conjugated linear peptide corresponding to 16 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human beta-Actin.
Anti-beta-Actin, clone 6L12 ZooMAb, Cat. No. ZRB1312, is a recombinant rabbit monoclonal antibody that specifically detects beta-Actin and has been tested for use in Immunocytochemistry, Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin), and Western Blotting.
Western Blotting Analysis: A 1:1,000 dilution from a representative lot detected -Actin in C2C12, C6, and COS-1 cell lysate.
Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin) Analysis: A 1:100 dilution from a representative lot detected -Actin in human uterus and human stomach tissue sections.
Immunocytochemistry Analysis: A 1:100 dilution from a representative lot detected -Actin in C2C12 cells.
Note: Actual optimal working dilutions must be determined by end user as specimens, and experimental conditions may vary with the end user.
Actin, cytoplasmic 1 (UniProt: P60709; also known as beta-Actin) is encoded by the ACTB gene (Gene ID: 60) in human. Actins are ubiquitous eukaryotic proteins that serve as multi-functional, basic building blocks of cytoskeletal microfilaments. They play critical roles in a wide range of cellular processes, including cell division, cell migration, chromatin remodeling, transcriptional regulation, and vesicle trafficking. These functions are attributed to their ability to form filaments, which can quickly assemble and disassemble depending upon the needs of the cell. At least six different actin types have been reported in mammals. Although actins show about 90% overall sequence homology, isoforms do show spatial, temporal, and tissue-specific expression patterns and only 50-60% homology is found in their 18 N-terminal residues. Beta- and gamma-actins are the major structural components of the actin cytoskeleton in non-muscle cells. Beta-actin plays a predominant role in cell migration and its enrichment has also been observed at the leading edge of migrating cells, whereas gamma-actin appears to be more uniformly distributed throughout the cell. In addition, beta-actin can also undergo N-terminal arginylation that regulates lamella formation in motile cells. Beta-actin has also been consistently utilized as a loading control in Western blotting applications due to the fact that its expression is fairly consistent, although its levels can somewhat differ in different tissues and its expression can be affected by certain pathological conditions. This ZooMAb recombinant monoclonal antibody, generated by our propriety technology, offers significantly enhanced specificity, affinity, reproducibility, and stability over conventional monoclonals.
