Influence of Haemoglobin Conformation, Nitrite and Eicosanoids on K Transport across the Carp Red Blood Cell Membrane

Abstract

The regulation of K transport across the red blood cell (RBC) membrane by haemoglobin (Hb) conformation was studied in carp, and the K transport mechanisms were identified. When a large proportion of Hb in the R quaternary structure was secured by oxygenation of blood at pH8.14, a net RBC K efflux was induced, which was accompanied by RBC shrinkage. This K… (More)
