SPTAN1 Fodrin, which seems to be involved in secretion, interacts with calmodulin in a calcium-dependent manner and is thus candidate for the calcium-dependent movement of the cytoskeleton at the membrane. Belongs to the spectrin family. 3 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
