Membrane fluctuations in erythrocytes are linked to MgATP-dependent dynamic assembly of the membrane skeleton.

Abstract

The observation of low-frequency fluctuations of the cell membrane in erythrocytes and in several nucleated cells suggests that this phenomenon may be a general property of the living cell. A study of these fluctuations in human erythrocytes and its ghosts has now been carried out using a novel optical method based on point dark field microscopy. We have… (More)
