Oxalate Exchange in Red Blood Cells of Calcium-Oxalate Stone Formers: A Pharmacological Study
We have previously presented data demonstrating that oxalate selfexhange in red blood cells (RBC) of renal stone formers occurs more rapidly than normal (1). We also have evidence that the anomaly resides in band 3 protein, the anion exchanger (1), and is in some way related to the degree of phosphorylation of the protein (2).
