Water exchange across the erythrocyte plasma membrane studied by HR-MAS NMR spectroscopy.

Water exchange across the plasma membrane of erythrocytes (red blood cells (RBCs)) was studied by means of high-resolution magic angle spinning (HR-MAS) NMR spectroscopy. Under HR-MAS conditions, the centrifugal force causes the splitting of RBC suspensions into a two-phase system composed of a central core of cell free water and an outer layer of tightly… CONTINUE READING
