DescriptionRabbit polyclonal to alpha Adducin
SpecificityThere are 2 isoforms of alpha adducin on the Uniprot protein database page for mouse. The antibody immunogen has high alignment to isoform 1: Isoform 1 80 kDa 100% Isoform 2 69 kDa 30% The aduccin protein is made up of 4 subunits, including the alpha beta and gamma subunits (according to the Uniprot page), Alignment of the immunogen with the mouse beta adducin: http://www.uniprot.org/uniprot/Q9QYB8 isoform 1 100% isoform 2 30% isoform 3 100% And with the mouse gamma adducin: http://www.uniprot.org/uniprot/Q9QYB5 isoform 1 92% Isoform 2 92% The antibody has not been specifically tested for detection of the other subunits, however according to the high alignments, the antibody is likely to detect several isoforms of these beta and gamma subunits.

FunctionMembrane-cytoskeleton-associated protein that promotes the assembly of the spectrin-actin network. Binds to calmodulin.
Tissue specificityExpressed in all tissues. Found in much higher levels in reticulocytes than the beta subunit.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the aldolase class II family. Adducin subfamily.
DomainEach subunit is comprised of three regions: a NH2-terminal protease-resistant globular head region, a short connecting subdomain, and a protease-sensitive tail region.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm > cytoskeleton. Cell membrane.

ICC/IF image of ab51130 stained Hek293 cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab51130, 1µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
ab51130 used in Immunoprecipitation and Western Blot.
Immunoprecipitation of NLN (EC 184.108.40.206), Thimet Oligopeptidase (thimet OP; EC 220.127.116.11), a-Adducin, and collapsin response mediator protein 2 (CRMP2) from photoradiolabeled P10 mouse forebrain membrane preparations. Immunoprecipitation of each protein was carried out from parallel nonspecific (NS) and total (Tot) photoradiolabeled groups.
a, equal amounts of NS and total sample of each protein immunoprecipitate were used to count the radioactive signal. Bck, background radioactivity; ***, p < 0.001 versus all other groups; n = 3–4).
b–e, representative Western blot confirmation of successful immunoprecipitation of each candidate protein from NS and total samples.
