The patterns of expression of two ankyrin isoforms demonstrate distinct steps in the assembly of the membrane skeleton in neuronal morphogenesis.


We have identified in chicken neurons two membrane-bound isoforms of goblin (ankyrin), the specific membrane attachment protein for spectrin in avian erythrocytes, which exhibit distinct patterns of expression and assembly during neuronal morphogenesis. Early in cerebellar and retinal development, neither goblin isoform is detected in mitotic cells… (More)
