INTRODUCTION Erythrocyte spectrin is the major component of a skeletal protein meshwork which lines the cytoplasmic surface of the red cell membrane. This structure has been termed the membrane skeleton in order to distinguish it from cytoskeletal structures which traverse the cytoplasm of nucleated cells. The spectrin membrane skeleton plays several roles essential to normal red cell physiology including maintaining the shape of the erythrocyte, allowing it the property of reversible deformability when faced with a range of
