MAPs are equivalent to intramembrane particles (IMPs), 80 % of which are composed of band 3 molecules. In the early 1970s, when electron microscopy with the freeze-fracture method became widely utilized, MAPs, that is IMPs, appeared to be considered erroneously as glycophorins, which were being investigated extensively at that time [77]. In normal subjects, IMPs (mostly band 3 molecules) are distributed regularly like icebergs floating on the sea with wide open channels of water between them (Fig.

In red cell membranes of various species of mammals, the asymmetry of the distribution of these phospholipids has been observed as being a fairly common phenomenon. The extent of this asymmetry, however, is variable, that is, PC at the outer leaflet of pig’s platelets is about 40 % of the total PC, and only 20 % of the total PC is present at the brushborder of a rabbit’s gut [6]. The biological significance of the variation of phospholipid distribution among the various species of mammals is not known at the present time.
