ACTA2 is a member of the actin family of proteins, an extremely conserved family of proteins which takes part in cell motility, structure and integrity. Three types of actin isoforms are known: Alpha, beta and gamma. Alpha actins are a main factor of the contractile mechanism, and beta and gamma take part in the regulation of cell motility. ACTA2 is an alpha actin which is located in skeletal muscle. Mutations in ACTA2 cause aortic aneurysm familial thoracic type 6. Various alternatively spliced variants, encoding the same protein were identified.
ACTA2 Human Recombinant produced in E. coli is a single polypeptide chain containing 400 amino acids (3-377) and having a molecular mass of 44.4 kDa. ACTA2 is fused to a 25 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
