Disease relevance of Elliptocytosis, Hereditary


High impact information on Elliptocytosis, Hereditary

  • Molecular basis of hereditary elliptocytosis due to protein 4.1 deficiency [5].
  • We here analyze the molecular basis of heterozygous 4.1(-) hereditary elliptocytosis, associated with protein 4.1 partial deficiency, in nine related French families. cDNA sequencing revealed a single codon deletion (AAA) resulting in a lysine residue deletion within the 10-kD binding domain, 3' of Motif I [6].
  • alpha I/74 hereditary elliptocytosis (HE) is a subgroup of HE in which patients exhibit an impaired self-association of spectrin dimers and an abnormal proteolytic cleavage of the alpha I domain of spectrin [7].
  • To explain the transient anemia and poikilocytosis seen during infancy in hereditary elliptocytosis (HE), we resealed erythrocyte (RBC) ghosts from affected children or their elliptocytic parents with 2,3-diphosphoglycerate (DPG) (0-8 mM), a compound that dissociates membrane skeletons, then measured ghost mechanical stability in the ektacytometer [8].
  • Defective binding of spectrin to ankyrin in a kindred with recessively inherited hereditary elliptocytosis [9].
