Prior to use, inspect vial for the presence of any precipitate or other unusual physical properties. These can indicate that the antibody has degraded and is no longer suitable for patient samples. Please run positive and negative controls simultaneously with all patient samples to account and control for errors in laboratory procedure. Use of methods or materials not recommended by enQuire Bio including change to dilution range and detection system should be routinely validated by the user.

Actin, Muscle Information for Pathologists
Discovered in 1987 (Am J Pathol 1987;126:51); also called HHF35, MSA. Recognizes all alpha actins (skeletal, smooth, cardiac) and gamma smooth muscle actin; but not beta cytoplasmic or gamma cytoplasmic actin (the latter is also called non-muscle actin). Recognizes actin expressed in all cells with muscle differentiation (cardiac, smooth and skeletal muscle), myoepithelial cells, myofibroblasts, pericytes and myogenic tumors (Am J Clin Pathol 1991;96:32). Uses by pathologists Identify skeletal muscle (Tumori 2007;93:198, J Cutan Pathol 2007;34:352) and smooth muscle cells (Eur Respir J 2001;17:316) in normal tissue or various disease entities.
Common Uses By Pathologists:
Identify skeletal muscle (Tumori 2007;93:198, J Cutan Pathol 2007;34:352) and smooth muscle cells (Eur Respir J 2001;17:316) in normal tissue or various disease entities. Classify tumors with smooth or skeletal muscle, pericytes, myofibroblasts (Cardiovasc Pathol 2006;15:91) or myoepithelial cells. Differentiate leiomyosarcoma (MSA+, keratin-) from spindle cell carcinoma (MSA-, keratin+, Am J Otolaryngol 2005;26:201).
