Human small bowel: immunohistochemical staining for Alpha Smooth Muscle Actin. Note cytoplasmic staining of the muscularis mucosa, vascular walls and smooth muscle fibers in the lamina propria. SMA: clone clone αsm-1

SMA (Alpha Smooth Muscle Actin)

smooth-muscle-actin-alpha-sma

Antigen Background

Cytoplasmic actins are part of the microfilament system of cytoskeletal proteins. Smooth muscle actin is found in vascular walls, intestinal muscularis mucosae and muscularis propria and in the stroma of various tissues.


Product Specific Information

Enzyme pretreatment may enhance staining in some cases.


Disclaimer

SMA (Alpha Smooth Muscle Actin) is recommended for the detection of specific antigens of interest in normal and neoplastic tissues, as an adjunct to conventional histopathology using non-immunologic histochemical stains.
