Erythrocyte ghosts have been found to be peculiarly useful for the study of the metabolism of nucleosides (1, 2). Preparations made by osmotic hemolysis were found to be unable to metabolize glucose. Adenosine, however, caused a disappearance of inorganic phosphate from ghost plasma suspensions with an equivalent production of organic acid-soluble ester… CONTINUE READING
