Membrane lipid alterations and Na+-pumping activity in erythrocytes from IDDM and NIDDM subjects.


The Na+-pumping activity of the erythrocyte plasma membrane in diabetic subjects was studied together with the lipid composition. Insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) patients (n = 25) were divided into young (28.1 +/- 7.4 yr old, mean +/- SD; n = 16) and old (7.17 +/- 9.8 yr old; n = 10) subjects; the age of non-insulin-dependent (NIDDM) patients was… (More)
