Erythrocyte membrane protein band 4.2 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the EPB42 gene.

Protein 4.2 is a cytoskeleton protein found in red blood cells.

Erythrocyte membrane protein band 4.2 is an ATP-binding protein which may regulate the association of protein 3 with ankyrin. It probably has a role in erythrocyte shape and mechanical property regulation. Mutations in the EPB42 gene are associated with recessive spherocytic elliptocytosis and recessively transmitted hereditary hemolytic anemia.
