Studies during the last three decades have enabled the development of detailed molecular insights into the structural basis of altered function in various inherited red cell membrane disorders. This review highlights our current understanding of molecular and mechanistic insights into various inherited red cell membrane disorders involving either altered membrane structural organization (hereditary spherocytosis, hereditary elliptocytosis and hereditary ovalocytosis) or altered membrane… Expand
Advances in understanding the pathogenesis of red cell membrane disorders
TLDR
A comprehensive review of the recent literature on the molecular genetics of erythrocyte membrane defects and their reported clinical consequences is provided. Expand
Hereditary spherocytosis, elliptocytosis, and other red cell membrane disorders.
TLDR
Both these diseases can be readily diagnosed by various laboratory approaches that include red blood cell cytology, flow cytometry, ektacytometry, electrophoresis of the red cell membranes proteins, and mutational analysis of gene encoding red cell membrane proteins. Expand
Red Blood Cell Membrane Defects
TLDR
This chapter will review the pathophysiology of red cell membrane disorders as well as their diagnosis and clinical management, including the recognition and management of hemolytic anemia. Expand
Diagnostic tool for red blood cell membrane disorders: Assessment of a new generation ektacytometer.
TLDR
The workflow of the samples shipped to the Hematology laboratory for RBC membranes disorder analysis and the data obtained for a large cohort of French patients presenting with RBC membrane disorders using a newly available version of the ektacytomer are described. Expand
Red Cell membrane disorders Hereditary spherocytosis La sphérocytose héréditaire
Hereditary spherocytosis is a common hemolytic disorder characterized by a defect or deficiency in one or more of the proteins composing red blood cell membrane. As a result, red blood cells have anExpand
Proteomic identification of erythrocyte membrane protein deficiency in hereditary spherocytosis
Hereditary spherocytosis (HS) is the most common congenital hemolytic anemia in Caucasians, with an estimated prevalence ranging from 1:2000 to 1:5000. The molecular defect in one of the erythrocytesExpand
Red Cell Membrane and Enzyme Defects
TLDR
In this chapter enzyme reactions in the red cell are presented as a flow diagram and causes of hemolytic anemia due to corpuscular defects have been listed. Expand
Imaging of the diffusion of single band 3 molecules on normal and mutant erythrocytes.
TLDR
Using quantum dots to image the diffusion of individual band 3 molecules in the plasma membranes of intact human erythrocytes from healthy volunteers and patients with defects in one of their membrane components suggests that single particle tracking of band 3 might constitute a useful tool for characterizing the general structural integrity of the human ERYthrocyte membrane. Expand
Current knowledge about the functional roles of phosphorylative changes of membrane proteins in normal and diseased red cells.
TLDR
The insufficient information about the PTMs occurring in a large majority of the red membrane proteins and the general lack of mass spectrometry data evidence the need of new comprehensive, proteomic approaches to improve the understanding of thered cell membrane physiology. Expand
Pathogenesis and Investigations in Hereditary Red Blood Cell Membrane Disorders
Red blood cell (RBC) membrane disorders are chiefly inherited conditions caused by mutations in the genes encoding for cytoskeletal proteins or transmembrane transporters, leading to decreased redExpand

The molecular basis of hereditary red cell membrane disorders.
TLDR
The mutation-disease relationship is reviewed and a number of points will be underscored: widespread weak alleles modulate the expression of the SPTA1 gene, encoding the alpha-chain of spectrin. Expand
Molecular basis for membrane rigidity of hereditary ovalocytosis. A novel mechanism involving the cytoplasmic domain of band 3.
TLDR
The findings imply that the cytoplasmic domain of an integral membrane protein can have profound effects on membrane material behavior, and this model for increased membrane rigidity is proposed. Expand
Red blood cell membrane defects.
TLDR
An overview of the currently known molecular basis of red cell membrane disorders is presented and dehydrated hereditary stomatocytosis was shown to belong to a pleiotropic syndrome: DHS + fetal edema + pseudohyperkalemia, which maps 16q23-24. Expand
Hereditary spherocytosis--defects in proteins that connect the membrane skeleton to the lipid bilayer.
TLDR
Electron micrographs show that small membrane vesicles are shed during the formation of spherocytes, which gives further insight into the pathogenetic consequences of membrane protein defects as well as the causes of the variability of disease severity. Expand
The hereditary stomatocytoses: genetic disorders of the red cell membrane permeability to monovalent cations.
TLDR
The hereditary stomatocytoses are mostly accounted for by genetic disorders of red cell membrane permeability to monovalent cations, which are comprised of a hemolytic anemia, frequently macrocytosis, and the presence of abnormally shaped red blood cells. Expand
Basis of unique red cell membrane properties in hereditary ovalocytosis.
Hereditary ovalocytes from a Mauritian subject are extremely rigid, with a shear elastic modulus about three times that of normal cells, and have increased resistance to invasion by the malariaExpand
Deficiency of skeletal membrane protein band 4.1 in homozygous hereditary elliptocytosis. Implications for erythrocyte membrane stability.
TLDR
Erythrocytes from three patients with severe hemolytic anemia, marked erythrocyte fragmentation, and elliptocytic poikilocytosis, were studied in terms of both their membrane protein composition and their mechanical characteristics, suggesting a central role for this protein in the maintenance of normal membrane stability and normal cell shape. Expand
Ankyrin–1 mutations are a major cause of dominant and recessive hereditary spherocytosis
TLDR
It is found that ankyrin-1 mutations are a major cause of dominant and recessive HS, that band 3 mutations are less common, and that the severity of HS is modified by factors other than the primary gene defect. Expand
Red blood cell deformability, membrane material properties and shape: regulation by transmembrane, skeletal and cytosolic proteins and lipids.
TLDR
This review has attempted to synthesize all of this currently available information and define the contributions of various membrane components to different RBC properties. Expand
Cellular and membrane properties of alpha and beta thalassemic erythrocytes are different: implication for differences in clinical manifestations.
TLDR
Analysis of biophysical and biochemical analyses on erythrocytes obtained from affected patients demonstrated that interaction of excess alpha- and beta-globin chains with membranes produces different cellular changes and suggest that the observed differences in the pathophysiology of alpha-and beta-thalassemias may be related to different cellular effects induced by the excess.
