Spectrin is the major constituent of the cytoskeletal network underlying the erythrocyte plasma membrane. It associates with band 4.1 and actin to form the cytoskeletal superstructure of the erythrocyte plasma membrane.
Involvement in disease
Defects in SPTB are the cause of elliptocytosis type 3 (EL3) [MIM:182870]. EL3 is a Rhesus-unlinked form of hereditary elliptocytosis, a genetically heterogeneous, autosomal dominant hematologic disorder. It is characterized by variable hemolytic anemia and elliptical or oval red cell shape. Defects in SPTB are the cause of spherocytosis type 2 (SPH2) [MIM:182870]; also known as hereditary spherocytosis type 2 (HS2). Spherocytosis is a hematologic disorder leading to chronic hemolytic anemia and characterized by numerous abnormally shaped erythrocytes which are generally spheroidal. SPH2 is characterized by severe hemolytic anemia. Inheritance is autosomal dominant.
Belongs to the spectrin family. Contains 2 CH (calponin-homology) domains. Contains 17 spectrin repeats.
The first phosphorylation event occurs on Ser-2114, followed by Ser-2125, Ser-2123, Ser-2128, Ser-2117, and Thr-2110.
