Application example

western blot using anti-plant actin antibody

15 µg of total protein extracted with PEB (AS08 300) from  leaf tissue of (1) Arabidopsis thaliana, (2) Hordeum vulgare, (3) Zea mays were separated on 4-12% NuPage (Invitrogen) LDS-PAGE and blotted 1h to PVDF. Filters were blocked 1h with 2% low-fat milk powder in TBS-T (0.1% TWEEN 20) and probed with anti-actin (AS13 2640, 1:2500, 1h) and secondary anti-rabbit (1:10 000, 1 h) antibody (HRP conjugated, recommended secondary antibody AS09 602) in TBS-T containing 2% low fat milk powder. Antibody incubations were followed by washings in TBS-T (15, +5, +5, +5 min). All steps were performed at RT with agitation. Signal was detected with chemiluminescent detection reagent using a Fuji LAS-3000 CCD (300s, standard sensitivity). Exposure time was 2 min.


 immunolocalization using anti-plant actin antibody

Actin cytoskeleton in 5 days old Arabidopsis thaliana seedlings. Actin signal shown in green, PIN1 in red and DAPI in blue. The material has been fixed in 2 % formaldehyde for 45 minutes. Tissue cleaning has been performed before immunolocalization. Rabbit anti-actin primary antibody was diluted in 1:250 and anti-rabbit Alexa 488 and Alexa 555 were both diluted in 1: 500 (Invitrogen). Scale bar - 20 µm.

Western blot of anti-actin antibodies on potato tuber flesh

Proteins were extracted from tuber flesh of Russet Burbank potato (Solanum tuberosum) with 0.1 M Tris HCl (pH=8.0), 5% sucrose (m/v), 2% (m/v) SDS, protease inhibitors (PMSF 1mM). Samples were heated 95°C 5 min, and 10 μg of total protein was resolved in 12% SDS PAGE and blotted to PVDF membrane for 1h-1.5h using tank transfer. Blots were blocked with a skimmed milk 4% (m/v) in T-TBS (1.5h) at RT with agitation. Primary antibodies (AS13 2640) were applied overnight +4°C in dilution 1:5000 with agitation. After washing with T-TBS 2-3 times, membrane was incubated with secondary antibodies (Goat Anti-Rabbit HRP conjugate, Transgen biotech HS101) 1:10000 for 1 hour at RT. Blot was washed as above and developed with ECL (Clarity Western ECL Substrate, BioRad, 170-5060) for 5 – 10 minutes. Exposure time – 20.395 seconds.

Actin is a highly conserved protein and an essential component of cell cytoskeleton and plays an important role in cytoplasmic streaming, cell shape determination, cell division, organelle movement and extension growth. Preferentially expressed in young and expanding tissues, floral organ primordia, developing seeds and emerging inflorescence.
