Effects of hexoses and anions on the erythritol permeability of human red cells.


1. The effect of hexoses and of the anions chloride, thiocyanate, and salicylate on the permeability of human red cells to [(14)C]erythritol has been studied.2. It was confirmed that erythritol competes with glucose, mannose, and galactose for the hexose transfer system of the red cell membrane. Approximately 25% of the erythritol influx was insensitive to… (More)
