|Application & Usage||Western blot analysis (0.5-4 µg/ml) and in in Immunohistochemistry (10-20 µg/ml).|
|Other Names||SPTAN1, FLJ44613, SPTA2,|
|Formulation||100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit anti-α-Fodrin polyclonal antibody in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, 0.01% thimerosal.|
|Handling||The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||alpha-Fodrin Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Fodrin, which seems to be involved in secretion, interacts with calmodulin in a calcium-dependent manner and is thus candidate for the calcium-dependent movement of the cytoskeleton at the membrane.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Cytoplasm, cell cortex. Note=Expressed along the cell membrane in podocytes and presumptive tubule cells during glomerulogenesis and is expressed along lateral cell margins in tubule cells.|

Fodrin is a universally expressed membrane-associated cytoskeletal protein consisting of α- and β-subunits. The protein is important for maintaining normal membrane structure and supporting cell surface protein function. α-Fodrin is one of the important targets cleaved by caspases during apoptosis. The full length 240 kDa protein can be cleaved at several sites within its sequence by activated caspases generating N-terminal 150 kDa, C-terminal 120 kDa, and 35 kDa major products. Cleavage of α-Fodrin leads to membrane malfunction and cell shrinkage.
