Comparative rheology of nucleated and non-nucleated red blood cells

  journal={Pfl{\"u}gers Archiv},
Deformation and dynamic flow behaviour of nucleated duck erythrocytes were compared to those of non-nucleated human cells during steady flow (at wall shear stresses up to 3 N·m−2) through glass capillaries (diameter between 5 μm and 12 μm). While the deformation process of both cell species is qualitatively similar, significant quantitative differences demonstrate a lower deformability of the nucleated erythrocytes. In comparison to human cells, the avian red cells exhibit significantly lower… CONTINUE READING
