Mutant forms of spectrin alpha-subunits in hereditary elliptocytosis.
(American Society for Clinical Investigation, 1987-07)
Two variant spectrins have been described in hereditary elliptocytosis (HE) and pyropoikilocytosis (HPP). Both are characterized by increased susceptibility of the alpha I (N-terminal) 80-kD domain to mild tryptic digestion, ...
Partial deficiency of erythrocyte spectrin in hereditary spherocytosis.
(Nature Publishing Group, 1985-03-28)
Hereditary spherocytosis (HS) is a common, clinically heterogeneous haemolytic anaemia in which the primary erythrocyte defect is believed to be some abnormality in the spectrin-actin membrane skeleton, leading to loss of ...
The Rh polypeptide is a major fatty acid-acylated erythrocyte membrane protein
(American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 1988-12-05)
The erythrocyte Rh antigens contain an Mr = 32,000 integral protein which is thought to contribute in some way to the organization of surrounding phospholipid. To search for possible fatty acid acylation of the Rh polypeptide, ...
Deficient red-cell spectrin in severe, recessively inherited spherocytosis
(Massachusetts Medical Society, 1982-05-13)
Bepridil and cetiedil. Vasodilators which inhibit Ca2+-dependent calmodulin interactions with erythrocyte membranes
(American Society for Clinical Investigation, 1984-09)
Two new vascular smooth muscle relaxants, bepridil and cetiedil, were found to possess specific CaM-inhibitory properties which resembled those of trifluoperazine. Trifluoperazine, bepridil, and cetiedil inhibited ...
Sequence and exon-intron organization of the DNA encoding the alpha I domain of human spectrin. Application to the study of mutations causing hereditary elliptocytosis.
(American Society for Clinical Investigation, 1989-10)
We have determined the exon-intron organization and the nucleotide sequence of the exons and their flanking intronic DNA in cloned genomic DNA that encodes the first 526 amino acids of the alpha I domain of the human red ...
Polymorphism in the Mr 32,000 Rh protein purified from Rh(D)-positive and -negative erythrocytes
(National Academy of Sciences, 1988-06)
A Mr 32,000 integral membrane protein has previously been identified on erythrocytes bearing the Rh(D) antigen and is thought to contain the antigenic variations responsible for the different Rh phenotypes. To study it on ...
Purification and partial characterization of the Mr 30,000 integral membrane protein associated with the erythrocyte Rh(D) antigen
(American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 1987-12-25)
Erythrocytes bearing the Rh(D) antigen have an Mr 30,000 integral membrane protein which can be surface-labeled with 125I and can be quantitatively immunoprecipitated from Triton X-100-solubilized spectrin-depleted membrane ...
Identification, purification, and partial characterization of a novel Mr 28,000 integral membrane protein from erythrocytes and renal tubules
(American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, 1988-10-25)
A novel Mr 28,000 integral membrane protein ("28kDa") was identified in human erythrocytes and found entirely associated with the Triton X-100 insoluble membrane skeletons. Antibodies to 28kDa reacted strongly on immunoblots ...
Reductions of erythrocyte membrane viscoelastic coefficients reflect spectrin deficiencies in hereditary spherocytosis
(American Society for Clinical Investigation, 1988-01)
Hereditary spherocytosis is a common hemolytic anemia associated with deficiencies in spectrin, the principal structural protein of the erythrocyte membrane-skeleton. We have examined 20 different individuals from 10 ...
