Band 3 (AE1), the anion exchanger of the human erythrocyte membrane, mediates not only fluxes of small hydrophilic anions (e.g., chloride, oxalate), but also the flip-flop of long-chain amphiphilic anions (e.g., dodecylsulfate). Treatment of erythrocytes with papain, long known to inhibit the transport of the former type of anions, accelerates the transport of the latter type. In an attempt to elucidate the basis of these opposite responses to papain, several small amphiphilic arylalkyl sulfonates and -sulfates were tested for the response of their transport, via AE1, to papain. Although all these probes are most likely transported by a flux and not by flip-flop, their transport was inhibited by papain only in some cases, but accelerated in others. Different responses to papain therefore most likely do not reflect differences between transport by flux or by flip.
