Scientific Background:Fodrin, also referred to as non-erythroid (αII-; brain) spectrin, is a tetrameric (αγ)2 actin-binding, fibrous protein, widely distributed in vertebrates, which forms part of the sub-membranous cytoskeleton within many cell types including neurons, and is particularly abundant with axons. The α-subunits of fodrins and spectrin are highly conserved phylogenetically, with the exception of human α-fodrin, which shares only 55-59% homology with erythroid-specific α-spectrins. The β-subunits of spectrin (and γ-subunits of fodrins) are species specific. The interleukin-1 converting enzyme (ICE) family of proteases has been implicated as important effectors of the apoptotic pathway, perhaps acting hierarchically in a protease cascade. Neuronal fodrin is known to be cleaved by calpain following ischaemic insult and it has been proposed that calpain and an unidentified protease play a role in the onset of neuronal death following transient forebrain ischaemia. Recently, an ICE-like protease has been implicated in the early cleavage of fodrin, producing a 150kDa fragment, proximal to CPP32 in Fas-induced and C2-ceramide mediated apoptosis. A cleavage product of α-fodrin has been proposed as a candidate autoantigen in primary Sjögren’s syndrome and α-fodrin has been shown to be the source of a so-called ‘inhibitory protein factor’ family, members of which have been shown to inhibit both GABA and ATP-dependent glutamate uptake into purified synaptic vesicles.
 
BML-FG6090 WB
Rat primary septo-hippocampal co-cultures (astrocytes and neurons cultured from day E18 rat embyros) were challenged with the pro-apoptotic compound staurosporine or with vehicle (DMSO) for times indicated above. Protein (40 μg) was separated by SDS-PAGE, transferred to PVDF membrane and probed with FG6090. The caspase-3 cleaved 120-kDa fragment of alpha-II-spectrin was detected at a dilution of 1:4000.
