Purification Purified
Background Actin is a globular, roughly 42- kDa protein found in all eukaryotic cells. Actin participates in many important cellular functions, including muscle contraction cell motility cell division and cytokinesis vesicle and organelle movement, cell signaling, and the establishment and maintenance of cell junctions and cell shape. Expression of smooth muscle alpha actin is regulated by hormones and cell proliferation and is altered by pathological conditions including onogenic transformation and atherosclerosis.Synonyms: ACTSA, ACTVS, Alpha-actin-2, Cell growth-inhibiting gene 46 protein
Gene ID 59
UniProt P62736
