Physicochemical and functional modifications induced by obesity on human erythrocyte membranes.


BACKGROUND Na+,K(+)-ATPase activity was evaluated in relation to membrane composition and molecular organization in erythrocyte membranes from obese patients by the amphyphylic molecule 6-dodecanoyl-2-dimethylamino-naphthalene (Laurdan). Its possible relationship with fat distribution and hyperinsulinaemia was also investigated. DESIGN Subjects were 10… (More)
