Mouse anti Human F-Actin antibody, clone NH3 recognizes human Filamentous actin (F-actin), the polymeric form of actin.. Mouse anti Human F-Actin antibody, clone NH3 binds to the N-terminal region of actin, but not to the extreme N-terminal 40 amino acids.

In tissue sections the antibody stains the cytoplasm of macrophages strongly, and gives granular, localized nuclear staining of all cell types.
