Spectrin is the predominant component of the membrane skeleton of the red blood cell and is essential in determining shape and deformability of the membrane. It consists of 2 nonidentical subunits, alpha (MW 240,000) and beta (MW 225,000). Spectrin is present in the red cell membrane in a tetrameric or possibly higher polymeric form through head to head self association of heterodimers that are linked by actin polymers and protein 4.1 to form a 2 dimensional network.

Suitable for use in Immunofluorescence and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Western Blot: 1:40. Detects a band at 220kD and 240kD
Immunofluorescence: 1:40
