Intraspecific variation in erythrocyte sizes among populations of Hypsiboas cordobae (Anura, Hylidae).
(Firenze University Press, 2013-12)
We studied the morphology and size of erythrocytes of H. cordobae, and analysed the geographic variation of this character along the distribution of the species, in relation to the latitudinal and altitudinal distances. ...
In vitro and ex vivo effect of hyaluronic acid on erythrocyte flow properties
(Biomed Central, 2010-12)
Background: Hyaluronic acid (HA) is present in many tissues; its presence in serum may be related to certaininflammatory conditions, tissue damage, sepsis, liver malfunction and some malignancies. In the present work, ...
An unusual pattern of Na+ and K+ movements across the horse erythrocyte membrane
Marked differences in the activities of three monovalent cation transport systems in horse versus human erythrocytes are reported. Whereas horse erythrocytes exhibit a 6-fold higher sodium-lithium countertransport, the ...
DNA fragmentation in programmed cell death in nucleate erythrocytes: A cytochemical analysis
(Japan Soc Histochem CytochemKyotoJapão, 2000)
Morphological Effects and Antioxidant Capacity of Solanum crispum (Natre) In Vitro Assayed on Human Erythrocytes
In order to gain insight into the molecular mechanism of the antioxidant properties of Solanum crispum, aqueous extracts of its leaves were assayed on human erythrocytes and molecular models of its membrane. Phenolics and ...
Effect of Bothrops asper (Fer-De-Lance) snake venom on erythrocyte membrane. A comparative study
1. The effect of Bothrops asper venom on erythrocytes of different species, sheep erythrocyte ghost vesicles and liposomes made of phospholipids from sheep erythrocytes was studied. 2. B. asper venom had a direct hemolytic ...
Effects of detyrosinated tubulin on Na+,K+-ATPase activity and erythrocyte function in hypertensive subjects
(Elsevier Science, 2015-01)
Formation of tubulin/Na+,K+-ATPase (NKA) complex in erythrocytes of hypertensive subjects results in a 50% reduction in NKA activity. We demonstrate here that detyrosinated tubulin, which is increased in hypertensive ...
