synthetic peptide (amino acids 23-44 in bovine) common to the N-terminus of mammalian clathrin light chains, LCa and LCb, conjugated to KLH. This region is not involved in heavy chain binding and is completely conserved in all mammals.

clathrin light chain A , CLTA2
Various cell types express both forms of clathrin LC in different relative levels. LCs are randomly distributed on clathrin triskelion, resulting in four types of clathrin triskelion with different LC composition (3LCa, 2LCa 1LCb, 2LCb-1LCa, 3LCb). In most cells, the LCa form is dominant. In contrast, cells with a regulated secretory pathway contain more LCb than LCa, suggesting that LCb may play a role in the specialized clathrin functions in these cells. Neuronal cells, express splicing variants of both LCa and LCb. A distinguishing feature of the LCb light chain is its ability to be phosphorylated by a casein kinase, at a site which is not present in the LCa sequence.
