A first-order semilogarithmic plot of the decrease in turbidity that takes place during hemolysis is used to define an apparent rate of hemolysis. The effect on this rate of hemolysis of various membrane modifications is studied. Triton X-100, ethanol and chlorpromazine, which dissolve into the membrane, all increase the rate of hemolysis, even though the same concentration of ethanol and chlorpromazine has been shown to decrease the osmotic fragility. Glutaraldehyde, azodicarboxylic acid… CONTINUE READING
