Fresh human blood samples were collected from healthy controls and splenectomized and unsplenectomized patients with hereditary spherocytosis due to band 3 or ankyrin and spectrin deficiency. The erythrocytes were separated into age-related fractions using self-forming Percoll density gradients. Membrane proteins were analysed by 2D electrophoresis and identified by mass spectrometry. Annexin VII was present in reticulocytes but was then lost as the cells matured. A different pattern was found in band 3-deficient samples: annexin VII was in fact present in both mature and immature red cell membranes. Cytoskeletal anomalies may then influence the turn-over of annexin VII during erythrocyte maturation.

Abstract

Fresh human blood samples were collected from healthy controls and splenectomized and unsplenectomized patients with hereditary spherocytosis due to band 3 or ankyrin and spectrin deficiency. The erythrocytes were separated into age-related fractions using self-forming Percoll density gradients. Membrane proteins were analysed by 2D electrophoresis and identified by mass spectrometry. Annexin VII was present in reticulocytes but was then lost as the cells matured. A different pattern was found in band 3-deficient samples: annexin VII was in fact present in both mature and immature red cell membranes. Cytoskeletal anomalies may then influence the turn-over of annexin VII during erythrocyte maturation.
