Tropomodulin 1 antibody | TRM-17 (Mab17)
Tropomodulin 1 is a sarcomeric protein highly expressed by erythrocytes, heart and skeletal muscle, which binds to and caps pointed ends of actin filaments to prevent thin filament elongation. The binding of the N-terminal region of Tmod1 with the actin-binding protein tropomyosin blocks the elongation and depolymerization of actin filaments, contributing to the geometry of the membrane skeleton.
Mouse anti Tropomodulin 1 (N-Terminal) antibody, clone TRM-17 recognizes an epitope between amino acid residues 6-57 within the N-terminal (NT) region of tropomodulin 1 and inhibits the binding of Tmod1 to tropomyosin.
