Anatomy of the red cell membrane skeleton: unanswered questions.
Boston, United States. In Blood, Feb 2016
The red cell membrane skeleton is a pseudohexagonal meshwork of spectrin, actin, protein 4.1R, ankyrin, and actin-associated proteins that laminates the inner membrane surface and attaches to the overlying lipid bilayer via band 3-containing multiprotein complexes at the ankyrin- and actin-binding ends of spectrin.
Molecular pathogenesis of meningiomas.
Saint Louis, United States. In J Neurooncol, 2004
Current data indicate that meningioma initiation is closely linked to the inactivation of one or more members of the highly conserved protein 4.1 superfamily, including the neurofibromatosis type 2 gene product merlin/schwannomin, protein 4.IB (DAL-1) and protein 4.1R.
