 Title    Asymmetrie Reconstitution of the Erythrocyte Anion Transport System in Vesicles of Different Curvature: Implications for the Shape of the Band 3 Protein  
 Abstract    The anion transport protein o f the human erythrocyte membrane, band 3, was solubilized and purified in solutions o f the non-ionic detergent nonaethylene glycol lauryl ether and then reconstituted in spherical egg phosphatidylcholine bilayers as described earlier (U. Scheuring, K. Kollewe, W. Haase, and D. Schubert, J. Membrane Biol. 90, 1 2 3 -1 3 5 (1986)). The result­ ing paucilamellar proteoliposom es o f average diameter 70 nm were transformed into smaller vesicles by French press treatment and fractionated according to size by gel filtration. The smallest protein-containing liposom es obtained had diameters around 32 nm; still smaller vesi­ cles were free o f protein. All proteoliposom e samples studied showed a rapid sulfate efflux which was sensitive to specific inhibitors o f band 3-mediated anion exchange. In addition, the orientation o f the transport protein in the vesicle membranes was found to be "right-side-out" in all samples. This suggests that the orientation o f the protein in the vesicle membranes is dictated by the shape o f the protein's intramembrane domain and that this domain has the form o f a truncated cone or pyramid.
