It is known that erythroid and non-erythroid spectrins binding of vesicles and monolayers containing PE proved sensitive to inhibition by red blood cell ankyrin. We now show that the bacterially-expressed recombinant peptides representing betaII(brain)-spectrin's ankyrin-binding domain and its truncated mutants showed lipid-binding activity, although only those containing a full-length amino terminal fragment showed high to moderate affinity towards phospholipid mono- and bilayers and a… CONTINUE READING
