The deformability of human erythrocytes was measured in a rheoscope, as a function of intracellular calcium content (varied with ionophore (A23187) and CaCl2) without complete ATP depletion and echinocytic transformation. Loading calcium into intact erythrocytes (calcium content: 16.8 mumol/1 packed cells = 1.48 amol per cell), the cell volume and energy… CONTINUE READING
