Scientific summary

Adhesion molecules are expressed on the surface of differentiating erythroblasts and play an important role during erythropoiesis. A subset of these molecules persists on the surface of circulating red blood cells and is at the origin of abnormal cell-cell interactions in red cell disorders such as Sickle Cell Disease, Polycythemia Vera and Hereditary Spherocytosis.

Our work aims to identify the membrane proteins involved in such interactions and to characterize the signaling cascades regulating their adhesion function under pathophysiological conditions.
