Spectrin binding and the control of membrane protein mobility


, : Spectrin binding and the control of membrane protein mobility. Journal of Supramolecular Structure 8(4): 455-463

Transmembrane proteins of the human erythrocyte show restricted in-plane mobility. Many of the restrictions on mobility are attributable to the molecules of spectrin which are located on the protoplasmic surface of the erythrocyte membrane. These molecules are elongate, form end-to-end heterodimer associations, and bind selectively to protein (or proteins) accessible on inside-out, but not right-side out, membrane vesicles.

A deletion within beta spectrin adjacent to the ankyrin-binding site precludes spectrin attachment to the membrane in hereditary spherocytosis. We describe a spectrin variant characterized by a truncated beta chain and associated with hereditary spherocytosis. The clinical phenotype consists of a moderate hemolytic anemia with striking spherocytosis and mild spiculation of the red cells....

Spectrin is a widely expressed protein with specific isoforms found in erythroid and nonerythroid cells. Spectrin contains an Src homology 3 (SH3) domain of unknown function. A cDNA encoding a candidate spectrin SH3 domain-binding protein was iden...

Tetramers of alpha- and beta-spectrin heterodimers, linked by intermediary proteins to transmembrane proteins, stabilize the red blood cell cytoskeleton. Deficiencies of either alpha- or beta-spectrin can result in severe hereditary spherocytosis...
