Topo-optical investigations of human erythrocyte glycocalyx conformational changes induced by dextran.

Abstract

Cell surface properties are involved in the aggregation process of red blood cells. Using the topo-optical toluidine blue reaction, conformational changes of the glycocalyx (main component glycophorin A) were found when red blood cells were incubated and fixed in the presence of dextran. Relative differences in optical path as a measure of red blood cell… (More)
