Membrane Integrity of Two Human Erythrocyte Genotypes in The Presence of Aqueous Solution of Sodium Metabisulphite and Their Correlations In Vitro.

Paul Chidoka Chikezie.


Erythrocyte membrane integrity is a pre-requisite for cellular functionality. The present study sought to investigate the capacity of normal adult haemoglobin (HbAA) and homozygote haemoglobin S (HbSS) erythrocytes to withstand osmotic stress when incubated over time (0 h ≤ t ≤ 8 h) in relatively low concentrations of Na2S2O5

Key words: Erythrocytes, genotypes, malondialdehyde, mean corpuscular fragility, sodium metabisulphite.
