The axonally transported high molecular weight protein fodrin, known to be present in the cortical cytoplasm of neurones and other cells, has been purified to homogeneity and several of its biochemical properties have been characterized. Fodrin is an F-actin-binding and cross-linking protein inducing actin gels. It is composed of two nonidentical polypeptide chains (Mr = 240,000 and 235,000) which form a tetrameric complex of a molecular weight close to 930,000. The similarity of fodrin with… CONTINUE READING
