The red cell membrane has an exceptionally high permeability for CO2, PCO2 approximately 0.15 cm/s, which is two to three orders of magnitude greater than that of some epithelial membranes and similarly greater than the permeability of the red cell membrane for HCO3-. As shown previously, this high PCO2 can be drastically inhibited by 10 microM 4,4'-diisothiocyanato-2,2'-stilbenedisulfonate (DIDS), indicating that membrane proteins may be involved in this high gas permeability. Here, we have… CONTINUE READING
