Studies on the inhibition of C56-induced lysis (reactive lysis). VI. Modulation of C56-induced lysis polyanions and polycations.


Multiple polyanions and polycations were tested for their ability to influence formation of EC567 from C56, C7, and sheep erythrocytes. Six of 11 polyanions tested, including polyanethol sulfonate, heparin, and dextran sulfate, inhibited this reaction. By contrast, polycations (five or seven tested), including polybrene, protamine, and polyornithine… (More)
