Isolated rat livers were perfused with a medium free of immune globulins, protein and hemoglobin to investigate age-dependent differences in the phagocytosis of erythrocyte membranes. Membranes of young erythrocytes were phagocyted significantly more than those of old ones. The control parameters of the liver function also were significantly higher during… (More)
