The changes as a result of aging of the normal human erythrocyte, with special emphasis on the membrane proteins, have been investigated to determine whether they are related to the age-dependent macrophage uptake of the red cell. Alterations in the metabolism can effect the arrangement of membrane proteins as evidenced by lectin agglutination of the red cells. Although serum proteins interact with the red cell, no alteration could be demonstrated in density-separated red cells. Author
