  • Treatment of human erythrocytes with the SH oxidant, diamide, suppresses shape transformations of biconcave erythrocytes into echinocytes or stomatocytes by shape-transforming agents assumed to exert their action via the lipid phase as well as via membrane proteins. The effect of diamide on shape changes is due to a formation of inter- and intramolecular disulfide bonds in membrane proteins, and can be reversed by reduction of these disulfide bonds. A monofunctional SH reagent, N-ethylmaleimide… CONTINUE READING
