Technical Data
Sptan1 (Spectrin alpha Chain, Non-erythrocytic 1, Alpha-II Spectrin, Fodrin alpha Chain, Spna2, Spta2)
Fodrin is a universally expressed membrane-associated cytoskeletal protein consisting of a- and b-subunits. The protein is important for maintaining normal membrane structure and supporting cell surface protein function. a-Fodrin is one of the important targets cleaved by caspases during apoptosis. The full length 240kD protein can be cleaved at several sites within its sequence by activated caspases generating N-terminal 150kD, C-terminal 120kD, and 35kD major products. Cleavage of a-Fodrin leads to membrane malfunction and cell shrinkage

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