BACKGROUND Cryohydrocytosis is an inherited dominant hemolytic anemia characterized by mutations in a transmembrane segment of the anion exchanger (band 3 protein). Transfection experiments performed in Xenopus oocytes suggested that these mutations may convert the anion exchanger into a non-selective cation channel. The present study was performed to(More)
Release of hemoglobin (Hb) into the circulation is a central pathophysiologic event that contributes to morbidity and mortality in chronic hemolytic anemias and severe malaria. These toxicities arise from Hb-mediated vasoactivity, possibly due to NO scavenging and localized tissue oxidative processes. Currently, there is no established treatment that(More)
Congenital dyserythropoietic anemias (CDAs) are rare hereditary disorders characterized by ineffective erythropoiesis and striking abnormalities of erythroblast morphology. The mutated genes are known for the most frequent types, CDA I and II, but data about their frequency do not exist. The objective of this retrospective study was to estimate the(More)
We identified 11 human pedigrees with dominantly inherited hemolytic anemias in both the hereditary stomatocytosis and spherocytosis classes. Affected individuals in these families had an increase in membrane permeability to Na and K that is particularly marked at 0 degrees C. We found that disease in these pedigrees was associated with a series of single(More)
The ubiquitously expressed iron storage protein ferritin plays a central role in maintaining cellular iron homeostasis. Cytosolic ferritins are composed of heavy (H) and light (L) subunits that co-assemble into a hollow spherical shell with an internal cavity where iron is stored. The ferroxidase activity of the ferritin H chain is critical to store iron in(More)
The systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) is triggered by C5a generation following an excessive complement amplification, but it has remained unclear how complement amplification is stimulated. It is known that neutrophilic elastase can cleave IgG to F(ab')(2) and that F(ab')(2)-containing immune complexes (F(ab')(2)-IC) stimulate complement(More)
We report on two elderly patients with newly diagnosed acute myeloid leukemia (AML) who were treated in palliative intention because of comorbidities and intermediate or poor risk cytogenetics. Both received G-CSF to reduce the risk of infection related to neutropenia. Interestingly, one patient achieved a full hematological remission and the other a(More)
Plasma sodium concentration is normally held within a narrow range. It may however vary greatly under pathophysiological conditions. Changes in osmolality lead to either swelling or shrinkage of red blood cells (RBCs). Here we investigated the influence of suspension osmolality on biophysical properties of RBCs and their ability to perfuse an artificial(More)
Congenital dyserythropoietic anemia type I (CDA I) is a rare autosomal recessive disorder with ineffective erythropoiesis and iron overloading. More than 100 cases have been described, but with the exception of a report on a large Bedouin tribe, these reports include only small numbers of cases, and no data on the lifetime evolution of the disease are(More)
