This antibody recognizes actin of skeletal, cardiac, and smooth muscle cells. Anti-muscle specific actin recognizes both alpha and gamma isotype irrespective of all muscle groups. This antibody is not reacting with non-muscle cells such as vascular endothelial cells and connective tissues and also non-reactive to neoplastic cells of non-muscle-derived tissue such as carcinomas, melanomas, and lymphomas. It is reactive with tumors of smooth muscle (leiomyomas and leiomyosarcomas) as well as skeletal muscle (rhabdomyomas and rhabdomyosarcomas).
