Endossin

A 700kDa protein detected by probing a monoclonal antibody raised against myoblast proteins by Western blot.  A second protein of approx. 500kDa was also detected but this was not thought to be a proteolytic fragment of the 700kDa protein (Desjardins et al, 1994).  Endossin is present just under the plasma-membrane, but it not thought to be an intra-membranous protein.
