Anti-Plectin, N-terminal Actin Binding Domain [PN643] Antibody

This mouse monoclonal antibody reacts with human, pig, and bovine Plectin (PLEC1); the antibody is specific for the N-terminal actin-binding domain (aa 171-595). Immunoblotting experiments using cytoplasmic extracts from DJM-1 cells confirmed reactivity with the 500 kDa Plectin protein.

Plectin, present in nearly all mammalian cells, is a cytoskeletal liker protein whose size is approximetry 500kDa. Plectin is expressed in a wide variety of tissues, including skin, striated muscle, and gastrointestinal tract epithelia. Plectin acts as a link between the three main components of the cytoskeleton: actin microfilaments, microtubules and intermediate filaments. In addition, plectin links the cytoskeleton to junctions found in the plasma membrane that structurally connect different cells. By holding these different networks together plectin plays an important role in maintaining the mechanical integrity and viscoelastic properties of tissues. This protein is reported to relate to Epidermolysis Bullosa, Muscular Dystrophy and Pancreatic Ductal Adenocarcinoma.
