Promastigotes from late-log phase cultures of Leishmania donovani were washed and resuspended in Hanks' Balanced Salt Solution without glucose or phenyl red but with 20 mM (N-[2-hydroxyethyl] piperazine-N'-[2-ethanesulfonic acid]) (HEPES) (HBSS-, 305 mOsm/kg). They were then added to a solution containing 86Rb such that the final osmolality and ionic… (More)
