Ankyrin 1 is a member of the ankyrin family of proteins that function to link integral membrane proteins to the underlying spectrin-actin cytoskeleton and play key roles in activities such as cell motility, activation, proliferation, contact, and the maintenance of specialized membrane domains. Ankyrin 1 was first discovered in erythrocytes, but since has also been found in brain and muscles. Mutations in erythrocytic ankyrin 1 have been associated in approximately half of all patients with hereditary spherocytosis [taken from NCBI Entrez Gene (Gene ID: 286].
