Rubidium Uptake in Erythrocytes

  • Chapter

Part of the Handbook of Experimental Pharmacology book series (HEP,volume 56 / 1)

Abstract

Active uptake by „Kälteerythrocyten“ (i.e., human erythrocytes stored at 4 °C for 5–8 days) of photometrically measured potassium has been demonstrated to be inhibited by the cardiac glycosides (c.g.), k-strophanthoside, and digitoxin and their aglucons (Schatzmann, 1953). The drug concentrations necessary to yield this effect ranged from 0.1 µg/ml to 10µg/ml. This effect was shown to be due to an inhibition of membrane Na+-K+-ATPase activity (Post et al., 1960; Dunham and Glynn, 1961; Glynn, 1957).
