We investigate pathogenic and non-pathogenic mutations occurring at the boundaries of human spectrin repeats. We show that mutations in isolated domains do not correlate with disease; however, in a tandem model system, pathogenic mutations disrupt stabilizing interactions between domains. This causes a much larger destabilisation than expected and demonstrates the importance of studying such mutations in the correct protein context
