As part of a programme of comparative measurements of P d (diffusional water permeability) the RBCs (red blood cells) from dingo (Canis familiaris dingo) and greyhound dog (Canis familiaris) were studied. The morphologies of the dingo and greyhound RBCs [examined by light and SEM (scanning electron microscopy)] were found to be very similar, with regard to aspect ratio and size; the mean diameters were estimated to be the same (∼7.2 μm) for both dingo and greyhound RBCs. The water diffusional… 
Comparative NMR studies of diffusional water permeability of red blood cells from different species: XVIII platypus (Ornithorhynchus anatinus) and saltwater crocodile (Crocodylus porosus)
TLDR
The results suggest that “conventional” WCPs (water channel proteins), or AQPs (aquaporins), are probably absent from the plasma membranes of RBCs from both the platypus and the saltwater crocodile.

TLDR
The results indicate that no water channel proteins (WCPs) or aquaporins are present in the membrane of RBCs from monotremes (echidna, platypus), chicken, little penguin and saltwater crocodile whereas WCPs from the membranes of R BCs from marsupials have peculiarities.
Morphology and water permeability of red blood cells from green sea turtle (Chelonia mydas)
TLDR
Results indicate that in the membrane of GST RBCs, there were no WCPs that were inhibited by the mercurial reagent, while the lipid bilayer of this membrane is unusually permeable to water.
Self-diffusion of Water and Blood Lipids in Mouse Erythrocytes
The self-diffusion of water and lipids in water—mouse RBCs’ suspension was investigated by pulsed field gradient NMR technique at different diffusion times in temperature range from 5 to 35 °C. For
Temperature dependency of whole blood viscosity and red cell properties in desert ungulates: Studies on scimitar-horned oryx and dromedary camel.
TLDR
Dromedary camel blood does not undergo stark changes in viscosity with changes in temperature, therefore, blood fluidity could be rather maintained during the day and night cycle, which should reduce the need of the vascularity to rhythmically adapt to changing shear forces when camels experience heterothermy.
About the Mechanism of Mammalian Erythrocytes Osmotic Stability
The peculiarities of the effect of hypertonic shock and hypotonic stress on erythrocytes of different species of mammals (human, bull, horse, rabbit, dog, rat) have been investigated. Based on the
Cryopreserved Cells Regeneration Monitored by Atomic Force Microscopy and Correlated With State of Cytoskeleton and Nuclear Membrane
TLDR
The first study of the stiffness of cryopreserved cells during post-thawing regeneration using AFM combined with confocal fluorescence microscopy is provided, demonstrating that the nonfrozen cell stiffness decreased proportionally to the cryoprotectant concentration in the medium.

Comparative nuclear magnetic resonance studies of diffusional water permeability of red blood cells from different species. IX. Australian feral chicken and domestic chicken (Gallus domesticus)
TLDR
The results suggest that no changes in the RBC water permeability are correlated with marked alterations in the habitat of chicken introduced to Australia (and that membrane proteins play little role in the diffusion of water across chicken RBC membrane).

TLDR
The membrane polypeptide electrophoretic pattern of rabbit RBCs has been compared with its human counterpart and the rabbit membrane contained a higher amount of spectrin (bands 1 and 2), while the band 6 (glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate dehydrogenase) was markedly less intense.
Comparative NMR studies of diffusional water permeability of erythrocytes from some animals introduced to Australia: Rat rabbit and sheep
TLDR
It is suggested that no changes in the RBC water permeability are correlated with marked alterations in the habitat of animal species introduced to Australia or by sex hormone status, if the NMR instrument-parameters are carefully chosen.
Comparative nuclear magnetic resonance studies on water diffusional permeability of red blood cells from mice and rats.
TLDR
There were no significant differences in the water permeability of mouse and rat RBCs, the values of P being around 6 x 10 (-3)/sec at 20 degrees C and 11 x 10(-3) cm/sec at 37 degrees C, and the activation energy was around 27 kJ/mol after incubation with PCMBS, in both species.
The basal permeability to water of human red blood cells evaluated by a nuclear magnetic resonance technique
TLDR
The values of P and Ea,d obtained after induction of maximal inhibition of water diffusion by PCMBS can be taken as references for the basal permeability to water of the human red blood cell membrane.

TLDR
The water diffusional permeability (P(d) of red blood cells (RBC) from agile wallaby, red-necked wallaby and Goodfellow's tree kangaroo was monitored and the inhibitory effect of a mercury-containing sulfhydryl (SH)-modifying reagent p-chloromercuribenzoate (PCMB) on agile wallabies RBCs was investigated.
