Unformatted text preview: 10nm. Furthermore, the contour length of each spectrin molecule is 200 nm and L e is approximately 70nm. Calculate the K s for the cortex using your model from part a). Comment on how this compares to the value mentioned in class for a red blood cell. 1 Photo removed due to copyright considerations. (Spectrin structure in red blood cell.) c) Now derive an expression for the membrane area expansion modulus K e for the model. d) Calculate the value of K e using the optical tweezer data.
