Potassium influxes in red cells from eight species have been found to follow exponential relationship with membrane phosphatidylcholine and sphingomyelin content. This relationship with membrane phosphatidylcholine and sphingomyelin content. This relationship with membrane phospholipid patterns was found to exist with both ouabain sensitive and insensitive fraction of potassium transport. When published values of chloride and phosphate permeabilities were compared with potassium permeabilities… CONTINUE READING
