Oleic acid binding and transport capacity of human red cell membrane.

Resealed human red cell membranes, ghosts, bind oleate (OL) by a limited number of sites when equilibrated at 37 degrees C, pH 7.3 with OL bound to bovine serum albumin (BSA) in molar ratios below 1.5. The binding capacity is 34 +/- 2.2 nmol g-1 ghosts with a dissociation equilibrium constant (37 degrees C) Kdm 1.38 +/- 0.15 fold Kd of albumin binding Kdm… CONTINUE READING
