FunctionFodrin, which seems to be involved in secretion, interacts with calmodulin in a calcium-dependent manner and is thus candidate for the calcium-dependent movement of the cytoskeleton at the membrane.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in SPTAN1 are the cause of epileptic encephalopathy early infantile type 5 (EIEE5) [MIM:613477]. EIEE5 is a disorder characterized by seizures associated with hypsarrhythmia profound mental retardation with lack of visual attention and speech development, as well as spastic quadriplegia.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the spectrin family.
Contains 3 EF-hand domains.
Contains 1 SH3 domain.
Contains 23 spectrin repeats.
modificationsPhosphorylation of Tyr-1176 decreases sensitivity to cleavage by calpain in vitro.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm > cytoskeleton. Cytoplasm > cell cortex. Expressed along the cell membrane in podocytes and presumptive tubule cells during glomerulogenesis and is expressed along lateral cell margins in tubule cells.

HRP conjugated goat anti-mouse at 1/5000 dilution
Performed under reducing conditions.
Predicted band size: 297 kDa
Observed band size: 250 kDa why is the actual band size different from the predicted?

IF using ab11755.
ab11755 at 1/100 staining mouse gut (small bowel) tissue sections by IHC-P. The tissue was paraformaldehyde fixed and a heat mediated antigen retrieval step in citrate buffer was performed before the tissue was blocked and incubated with the antibody for 45 minutes. An HRP conjugated goat anti-mouse antibody was used as the secondary.
