|Calculated MW||80955 Da|
|Other Names||Alpha-adducin, Erythrocyte adducin subunit alpha, ADD1, ADDA|
|Target/Specificity||A synthetic phospho-peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Ser59 of human alpha Adducin was used as an immunogen. The antibody only detects alpha Adducin phosphorylated on Serine 59.|

|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Adducin alpha Antibody Phospho (pS59) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Membrane-cytoskeleton-associated protein that promotes the assembly of the spectrin-actin network. Binds to calmodulin.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Cell membrane; Peripheral membrane protein; Cytoplasmic side|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in all tissues. Found in much higher levels in reticulocytes than the beta subunit|

Alpha adducin is a 80-120 kD member of the aldolase class II family and adducin subfamily. Adducin is a membrane skeletal protein that binds to actin filaments (F-actin) and promotes the association of spectrin with F-actin to form a spectrin-actin meshwork beneath plasma membranes (1-2). Adducin is a heterodimeric protein that consists of related subunits; α and β, or α and γ subunits (3). Adducin binds with high affinity to Ca(2+)/calmodulin and is a substrate for protein kinase C (PKC), and protein kinase A (PKA) (4). PKA specifically phosphorylates Ser59, Ser408, Ser436, and Ser481 located in the neck domain of alpha Adducin. Phosphorylation of Adducin alpha by Rho-kinase at Thr445 and Thr480 enhances the F-actin-binding activity of Adducin alpha (5).
