Background: Glycophorin C (GYPC) is an integral membrane glycoprotein. It is a minor species carried by human erythrocytes, but plays an important role in regulating the mechanical stability of red cells. A number of glycophorin C mutations have been described. The Gerbich and Yus phenotypes are due to deletion of exon 3 and 2, respectively. The Webb and Duch antigens, also known as glycophorin D, result from single point mutations of the glycophorin C gene. The glycophorin C protein has very little homology with glycophorins A and B. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2012]

Target (Information from UniProt)
Function: This protein is a minor sialoglycoprotein in human erythrocyte membranes. The blood group Gerbich antigens and receptors for Plasmodium falciparum merozoites are most likely located within the extracellular domain. Glycophorin-C plays an important role in regulating the stability of red cells.
Tissue Specificity: Glycophorin-C is expressed in erythrocytes. Glycophorin-D and IsoGPC are ubiquitously expressed.
Sequence Similarities: Belongs to the glycophorin-C family.
Post-Translational Modification: O-glycosylated with core 1 or possibly core 8 glycans.
Cellular Location: Cell membrane.

Linked to the membrane via band 4.1.
