Glutamine- and phosphate-containing hypotonic storage media better maintain erythrocyte membrane physical properties.


We have shown that red blood cell (RBC) adenosine-5'-triphosphate (ATP) is better maintained and that there is less hemolysis and K+ leakage in hypotonic experimental additive solutions (EASs) containing glutamine and glutamine plus phosphate (Pi) than in the conventional additive solution Adsol during blood bank storage. The objective of this study was to… (More)
