Monoclonal Rabbit Supernatant B IC
Alpha Fodrin is a member of the spectrin family of widely distributed filamentous proteins that form a supporting and organizing scaffold for cell membranes (1). Non-erythroid alpha spectrin, also called Alpha Fodrin, is a major cortical cytoskeletal protein that has been implicated in the establishment of specialized membrane- cytoskeletal domains in differentiating cells (2-3). Cleavage of Alpha Fodrin accompanies apoptosis, induced by activation via the CD3/T cell receptor complex, ligation of the Fas (CD95) molecule and other Fas-expressing cells, or treatment of cells with staurosporine, dexamethasone, or synthetic ceramide (4). The major products of the cleavage are amino-terminal (135kDa) and carboxy-terminal (150kDa and 120kDa) fragments. Antibodies against Alpha Fodrin are observed in diseases characterized by chronic apoptosis, and are valuable in the evaluation fo Sicca- and Sjögren's syndrome (5-6).
