The antibody is specific for an epitope located on the 47 kDa peptide derived from a chymotryptic cleavage of gelsolin. The antibody reacts with plasma and cytoplasmic gelsolin. An additional application for this antibody is immunoaffinity chromatography, for purification of gelsolin, and for detection of gelsolin-actin complexes in cell extracts.

Gelsolin is a calcium dependent actin binding protein. It is a potent modulator of actin filament length and gelation. Gelsolin has been shown to exist in at least two variant forms, cytoplasmic gelsolin and plasma gelsolin. Plasma gelsolin has also been called actin depolymerizing factor (ADF) or brevin. Human plasma and rabbit macrophage gelsolins differ by the presence of a 25 amino acid residue extension at the NH2 terminus in the human plasma gelsolin which appears to account for the difference in relative molecular weights.
