Background Fractin (fragment of Actin) is a Caspase-specific cleavage product of actin and serves as a novel marker of apoptosis-related events. It has recently been reported that Fractin may have a functional role in apoptotic signaling in oligodendrocytes (Schulz, R., et al., Glia, 2009, in press).

Species Reactivity
Species reactivity (tested):
Human and Rat.
Specific for the ~ 32 kDa Fractin protein in Western blots with no reactivity to intact actin. There is often a ladder of smaller bands in cells or culture or in vivo preparations due to further degradation by other proteases.
The antibody has been shown to detect the processes and cell bodies of degenerating neurons and plaque-associated microglia in Alzheimer's disease. (Ref.1)
