Effect of selective alteration of membranous or cytoplasmic properties on erythrocyte elongation in shear flow.

Abstract

This study examines the relative contributions of the cytoplasmic and membranous compartments to the shear-induced elongation of single red blood cells (RBC). The mechanical properties of the cell membrane of normal human RBC were altered by controlled heat treatment (HT) (48 degrees C for 1, 5 and 9 min). Using RBC transformed by conversion of… (More)
