Intracellular acid-base heterogeneity in nucleated avian erythrocytes.


1. Intracellular hydrogen ion activity, [H+]i, was extimated in human erythrocytes and in nucleated avian erythrocytes from measurements of the distribution of ammonia and 5,5'-dimethyloxazolidine-2,4'-dione (DMO) between intracellular and extracellular fluid. 2. In human erythrocytes there was no difference between values for [H+]i derived from… (More)
