Ankyrins are scaffold proteins that function to link proteins that mediate the attachment of integral membrane proteins to the spectrin-actin based membrane cytoskeleton. In this manner, ankyrin family proteins play key roles in various processes including cell motility, activation, proliferation, contact and the maintenance of specialized membrane domains.

Store at ≤ -20 C for long term storage. For short term storage, store at 2-8 C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the vial prior to removing the cap.
Cross-reacts with Ankyrin-B and Ankyrin-G
Each new lot of this antibody is tested to confirm that it recognizes a single immunoreactive band of expected molecular weight when used to probe brain lysate.
These antibodies are to be used as research laboratory reagents and are not for use as diagnostic or therapeutic reagents in humans.
