This rabbit IgG polyclonal antibody was generated against purified human red blood cell spectrin beta-chain monomer and is specific for human red blood cell beta-spectrin.
Spectrin is a cytoskeletal protein that lines the intracellular side of the plasma membrane in eukaryotic cells along with actin. Spectrin plays a role in cell shape control, arrangement of transmembrane proteins, and organelle positioning. Beta-Spectrin functions as a structural element and stabilizes erythrocyte membranes. Mutations in beta-spectrin are described as a possible cause of neonatal hemolytic anemia, spherocytosis type 2, and hereditary elliptocytosis.
