Addition of dihydroxyacetone DHA to acid-citrate-phosphate ACD blood is effective in partially maintaining 2,3-diphosphoglycerate levels for a period of 21 to 28 days. DHA has no effect on adenosine triphosphate ATP levels or cell viability. The overall effect of adenine with DHA is unfavorable since it retards the effect of the DHA while only slightly raising ATP levels. DHA may be valuable in maintaining increased hemoglobin function levels throughout the present 21 day storage period. Author
