RDI Divison of researchd Industries Intl  offers a wide line of  antibodies. Since no one antibody works best for all applications (neutralization, blotting, ELISA, etc), we offer many different types of antibodies to help solve this problem. Please inquire for other applications or types of antibodies not listed below.


cat# RDI-DYSTROBabm        $375.00/vial 50ug

        RDI-DYSTROBabm-1    $625.00/vial 150ug

Background: Acetylcholine receptor clustering is considered an early   event and a marker for synaptogenesis between a motor neuron   and a muscle fiber. This process is mediated by the extracellular protein Agrin which binds to a and b Dystroglycan, previously discovered as Dystrobrevin- associated proteins. Dystrobrevin binds to the actin cytoskeleton by its N-terminal domain, thus providing the link between the actin cytoskeleton and receptor clustering. InTorpedo electric organ, Dystrobrevin is a prominent phosphotyrosine-containing protein. Murine Dystrobrevins comprise a family of four related proteins (1-4) with similar function, generated by alternative splicing. Dystrobrevin-1 is 688 amino acids and has an apparent mobility of 87kDa. Dystrobrevin-2 shares almost identical sequence with Dystrobrevin-1 in the first 500 amino acids and has an apparent mobility of 59kDa.
