Paper Abstract

Rotational mobility of band 3 (an anion channel protein) in human erythrocyte membranes and ghost membranes was studied to analyze band 3 self-association in the membrane and anchorage of band 3 by the cytoskeletal/peripheral protein network associated with the inner surface of the membrane. Rotational diffusion of band 3 was observed by time-resolved phosphorescence anisotropy decay of erythrosin and eosin covalently attached to band 3 (1 probe/band 3). The phosphorescence lifetimes of eosin and erythrosin attached to band 3 are approximately 2.4 and 0.4 msec, respectively. The use of both probes enabled us to observe rotational correlation times of band 3 between 10 psec and 7 msec (see Figure 1).
