The localization of calspectin (fodrin, a non-erythroid spectrin-like protein), which is known to bind calmodulin and F-actin, was detected in the thyroid gland of normal and TSH-treated rats by means of light-microscopic immunocytochemistry. Calspectin was demonstrated in the cytoplasm of the follicle epithelial cells especially along the baso-lateral plasma membrane in normal rats. In TSH-treated animals, in addition to the baso-lateral plasma membrane region, the apical plasma membrane region of the follicle epithelial cells also showed positive reaction to the immunostaining. These results suggest that calspectin, in conjugation with calmodulin and actin, play a role in the secretory activities including reabsorption activity of colloid of the follicle epithelial cell.
