Majorphenotypic changes occur inredcell membranes during theperinatal period, buttheunderlying molecular explanations remain poorly defined. Aquaporin CHIP,themajor erythroid andrenal water channel, wasstudied inperinatal rats using affinity-purifie d anti-CHIP IgGforimmunoblotting, flowcytometry, andimmunofluorescence microscopy. CHIPwasnot detected inprenatal redcells butwasfirst identified incirculatingredcells onthethird postnatal day.Mostcirculating red cells werepositive… CONTINUE READING
