Hydrophobic labelling of spectrin in erythrocytes using arylisothiocyanates.


PMID 3579888

Abstract

Labelling of spectrin with the hydrophobic probes 2-naphthylisothiocyanate and 4-[125I]-iodophenylisothiocyanate dispersed in lipid vesicles was studied. Although spectrin is a peripheral protein of the erythrocyte membrane, it was found to be labelled as a result of incubation of washed red blood cells with hydrophobic arylisothiocyanates.
