Effect of the shape of human erythrocytes on the evaluation of the passive electrical properties of the cell membrane.


The possible influence of the cell shape on the derivation of the passive electrical parameters of a biological cell membrane is discussed in light of two different models which describe the cell as a shelled ellipsoidal particle and as a biconcave disk obtained by the revolution of the Cassini oval, respectively. Whereas within the first model, the Laplace… (More)
