|Synonyms||AE1, DI, EPB3|
|Function||Functions both as a transporter that mediates electroneutral anion exchange across the cell membrane and as a structural protein. Major integral membrane glycoprotein of the erythrocyte membrane; required for normal flexibility and stability of the erythrocyte membrane and for normal erythrocyte shape via the interactions of its cytoplasmic domain with cytoskeletal proteins, glycolytic enzymes, and hemoglobin. Functions as a transporter that mediates the 1:1 exchange of inorganic anions across the erythrocyte membrane. Mediates chloride-bicarbonate exchange in the kidney, and is required for normal acidification of the urine.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Basolateral cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein Note=Detected in the erythrocyte cell membrane and on the basolateral membrane of alpha-intercalated cells in the collecting duct in the kidney|
|Tissue Location||Detected in erythrocytes (at protein level). Erythrocytes.|

The AE1 (anion exchanger, band 3) protein is expressed in erythrocytes and in the A-type intercalated cells of the kidney distal collecting tubule. In both cell types it mediates the electroneutral transport of chloride and bicarbonate ions across the lipid bilayer, and, in erythrocytes (1). AE1 is phosphorylated on Tyr359 and Tyr404 by Lyn in erythrocytes. Phosphorylation of these residues is necessary for correct localization and recycling of kidney AE1 to the basolateral membrane (2).
