|Description||Spectrins are central components of the cytoskeleton that form a scaffold below the plasma membrane. Spectrins contain two subunits, alpha and beta, which intertwine to form heterodimers that can self associate into elongated tetramers. alpha-spectin I and beta-spectrin I form heterodimers in red blood cells, while nonerythroid mammalian cells contain heterodimers of alpha-spectin I and II with beta-spectrin I to V. The structure of spectrins includes a succession of triple-helical repeats along with various domains, such as SH3 domain, EF hands, PH domains, and binding domains for ankyrin, actin, band 4.1, and calmodulin. alpha-spectrin II is a widely expressed non-erythroid alpha-spectrin that contains an SH3 domain, a calmodulin binding site, and two cleavage sites for proteases, such as calpains and caspase-3. beta-spectrin II is a widely expressed non-erythroid beta-spectrin that contains a C-terminal region that interacts with alpha-spectrins and a PH domain. alpha-spectrin II and beta-spectrin II, like many other spectrins, can form heterodimers that can self associate into tetramers, as well as interact with Band 4.1, F-actin, and other proteins near the plasma membrane. This scaffold of cytoskeletal and plasma membrane proteins is critical for the maintenance of cell structure.|
1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
2. Please refer to us for technical protocols.
3. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
4. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
