The release of spectrin-free vesicles from ATP-depleted human red blood cells (Lutz et al. (1977) J. Cell. Biol. 73, 548) can be considered the final step of a shape change from discocytes to echinocytes. The study of physical and chemical properties of released vesicles suggests that vesicle release is not merely a consequence of charge alterations within… CONTINUE READING
