The results of the study of ACD-adenine can be summarized as follows Ion-exchange chromatographic analyses of the erthyrocyte phosphate compounds were carried out on blood which had been stored in ACD and in ACD-adenine for 0, 2, 4, 6 and 8 weeks. No obvious differences were found between ACD and ACD-adenine in the intermediates of glucose metabolism, nor was there any evidence for the accumulation of any of the components of the pentose shunt in either case. On the other hand, it was confirmed that storage of the blood in ACD-adenine led to a significant elevation of the adenine nucleotides, AMP, ADP and ATP, which was especially striking in the case of ATP late in storage.
