The maintenance of the biconcave shape and its changes in the echinocytic or stomatocytic direction result from interactions between a great number of membrane components. These investigations - both in the field of ATP-and Ca2+-dependent shape changes - refer to the paramount importance of phosphorylation and interactions of the protein network covering the inner surface of the membrane.
