Blood was drawn from ten healthy volunteer donors into citrate-phosphate-dextrose adenine (CPDA-1) anticoagulant and placed on the quarantine shelf of the blood bank refrigerator. Plasma glucose, sodium, potassium, chloride, bicarbonate, glutamic-oxaloacetic transaminase, lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) and hemoglobin as well as white cell count, hematocrit,(More)
The stability of red blood cell antigens and plasma coagulation factors stored in new plastic blood packs containing either citrate-phosphate-dextrose (CPD) or citrate-phosphate-dextrose-adenine (CPDA-2) was studied. The containers were made of either polyolefin (PL 732TM) plastic without a plasticizer, or polyvinyl chloride with a non-diethylhexyl(More)
Amyloid deposits formed from islet amyloid polypeptide (IAPP) are a hallmark of type 2 diabetes mellitus and are known to be cytotoxic to pancreatic β-cells. The molecular structure of the fibrillar form of IAPP is subject of intense research, and to date, different models exist. We present results of solid-state NMR experiments on fibrils of recombinantly(More)
