Functional Analysis of Cytoskeletal Protein Dematin in Glucose Metabolism.

Wu, Jiayi.

Abstract: Dematin, a membrane-cytoskeleton associated actin-binding protein, is known to bind to human erythrocyte membrane glucose transporter, GLUT1/SLC2A1, and hence may attach and stabilize the GLUT1 to the spectrin-actin network. The headpiece domain of dematin contains actin-binding and cAMP-kinase phosphorylation sites, which are required for the stability of erythrocyte membrane. Dematin a... read more
