Abstract:

The cellular adenosine triphosphate and 2,3-diphosphoglycerate levels of rejuvenated erythrocytes are higher than those of control cells and are maintained higher throughout the storage intervals investigated. The metabolic integrity of the rejuvenated cells is also improved, as evidenced by greater osmotic resistance, decreased spontaneous lysis, and greater uptake of methylene blue, when compared to control cells.
