Ankyrins

A Family of Membrane-Associated Proteins responsible for the attachment of the Cytoskeleton. Erythrocyte-related Isoforms of ankyrin attach the Spectrin Cytoskeleton to a transmembrane protein (Anion Exchange Protein 1, Erythrocyte) in the Erythrocyte Plasma Membrane. Brain-related Isoforms of ankyrin also exist.
