The effects of palmitate on human erythrocyte membrane potential and osmotic stability.

Abstract

To evaluate the mechanism(s) of erythrocyte stabilization in hypotonic medium by free fatty acids, we have studied the effect of palmitic acid and its derivatives on human erythrocyte membrane electrochemical properties, osmotic stability and fluidity. Palmitic acid increased the membrane potential to the highest extent as compared with its derivatives. The… (More)
