Technical Data
Spectrin, alpha II, SH3 domain, non-erythroid (Fodrin
This antibody was developed against the alpha II spectrin SH3 domain.(1) Specific marker for human, rat and mouse alpha II spectrin or fodrin.

Source: Tissue culture supernatant

Applications: Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot, Immunofluorescence, Immunohistochemistry (Frozen only). Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution: Immunofluorescence: 1:100-1:500, Immunohistochemistry: 1:50-1:100; Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability: May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, aliquot and add glycerol (40-50%). Freeze at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.

Recombinant alpha II spectrin (non-erythroid spectrin or fodrin) SH3 domain
Purified by ammonium sulfate precipitation and dialyzed.
Supplied as a liquid in PBS, pH 7.2, 0.1% sodium azide.
In cerebellar cell cultures, it labels axons and periphery of cell bodies consistent with localization of fodrin. Does not crossreact with alpha I (erythroid) spectrin SH3 domain.
Intended for research use only. Not for use in human, therapeutic, or diagnostic applications.
