Term Information [More information on spectrin]

Accession
GO:0008091
Name
spectrin
Ontology
cellular_component
Synonyms
None
Definition
Membrane associated dimeric protein (240 and 220 kDa) of erythrocytes. Forms a complex with ankyrin, actin and probably other components of the membrane cytoskeleton, so that there is a mesh of proteins underlying the plasma membrane, potentially restricting the lateral mobility of integral proteins.
