Red cells ow their mechanical properties, that is, their resistance and their elastic deformability, to a protein network that laminates the lipid bilayer and to proteins spanning the latter. All proteins are interconnected. Their structure, as well as the structure of the corresponding genes, will be outlined. Numerous mutations have allowed to reclassify hereditary elliptocytosis (HE) and poikilocytosis (HP), and, more recently, hereditary spherocytosis (HS) into well defined subsets of… CONTINUE READING
