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]
