NCBI Summary for EPB42
Erythrocyte membrane protein band 4.2 is an ATP-binding protein which may regulate the association of protein 3 with ankyrin. It probably has a role in erythrocyte shape and mechanical property regulation. Mutations in the EPB42 gene are associated with recessive spherocytic elliptocytosis and recessively transmitted hereditary hemolytic anemia. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
UniProt Comments for EPB42
Epb4.2: Probably plays an important role in the regulation of erythrocyte shape and mechanical properties. Defects in EPB42 are the cause of spherocytosis type 5 (SPH5); also known as hereditary spherocytosis type 5 (HS5). Spherocytosis is a hematologic disorder leading to chronic hemolytic anemia and characterized by numerous abnormally shaped erythrocytes which are generally spheroidal. Absence of band 4.2 associated with spur or target erythrocytes has also been reported. Belongs to the transglutaminase superfamily. Transglutaminase family. 2 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.
