The disposition of membrane polypeptides in stored blood

Keith A. Frey, Keith R. Shelton

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Major polypeptides in the plasma membrane of human erythrocytes appear to undergo few if any spatial or conformational changes relative to each other during storage of blood under blood bank conditions. Membrane-bound glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase is an exception. It ceases to undergo cross-linking reactions mediated by low levels of gluteraldehyde after 21 days of storage.
