  • Function

    Fodrin, 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 disease

    Defects 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 similarities

    Belongs to the spectrin family.
    Contains 3 EF-hand domains.
    Contains 1 SH3 domain.
    Contains 23 spectrin repeats.
  • Post-translational

    Phosphorylation of Tyr-1176 decreases sensitivity to cleavage by calpain in vitro.
  • Cellular localization

    Cytoplasm > 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.
