Ankyrin-1 or -Ankyrin-R is encoded by the gene ANK1. Ankyrin R is a scaffold protein that functions to link proteins that mediate the attachment of integral membrane proteins to the spectrin-actin based membrane cytoskeleton. In this manner, ankyrin family proteins play key roles in various processes including cell motility, activation, proliferation, contact and the maintenance of specialized membrane domains. Ankyrin R is found expressed in erythrocytes, skeletal muscle and brain. Diseases associated with this gene include Spherocytosis.
