Introduction: Ankyrin

Description of Ankyrin

Ankyrin: loosely associated membrane protein which links spectrin to integral membrane proteins such as "band 3."
Source: CRISP

Ankyrin: A family of membrane-associated proteins responsible for the attachment of the cytoskeleton. Erythrocyte-related isoforms of ankyrin attach the SPECTRIN cytoskeleton to a transmembrane protein (ANION EXCHANGE PROTEIN 1, ERYTHROCYTE) in the erythrocyte plasma membrane. Brain-related isoforms of ankyrin also exist.
