Abstract

The plasma membrane plays important roles in maintaining specific intracellular environment, allowing the cell to be an autonomous biological unit. The basic structure of the plasma membrane was originally proposed as the “fluid mosaic model” by Singer and Nicolson in 1972. Investigation has accumulated knowledge that enables us to regard the plasma membrane as the “trilayer”, including the membrane skeleton which underlies the lipid bilayer (see Fig. 1). The structure and function of the membrane skeleton has been extensively studied using the red cell membranes. Moreover, this network system has been shown to exist in other cells as well. In the present review, through taking a view of plasma membrane from inside the cell (see Fig. 2), the structure-function correlation of the red cell membrane skeleton and its regulations are summarized.
