Western blot analysis of Lane 1: NIH-3T3 cell lysate (Mouse embryonic fibroblast cells), Lane 2: NBT-II cell lysate (Rat Wistar bladder tumour cells) with FLNA polyclonal antibody (Cat # PAB28612) at 1:100-1:500 dilution.
The protein encoded by this gene is an actin-binding protein that crosslinks actin filaments and links actin filaments to membrane glycoproteins. The encoded protein is involved in remodeling the cytoskeleton to effect changes in cell shape and migration. This protein interacts with integrins, transmembrane receptor complexes, and second messengers. Defects in this gene are a cause of several syndromes, including periventricular nodular heterotopias (PVNH1, PVNH4), otopalatodigital syndromes (OPD1, OPD2), frontometaphyseal dysplasia (FMD), Melnick-Needles syndrome (MNS), and X-linked congenital idiopathic intestinal pseudoobstruction (CIIPX). Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene
