Red Cell Structure and Its Breakdown

  • Eric Ponder
Part of the Protoplasmatologia book series (PROTOPLASMATOL., volume 10, 2)


In writing this chapter for “Protoplasmatologia,” I have tried to confine the material to a consideration of the problems of the red cell and its breakdown as they appear at the moment. The problems of 1955 are very different from those which presented themselves tea years ago, as will he realized by anybody who compares this chapter with my monograph. “Hemolysis and Related Phenomena.” 1948. In these ten years. the situation has changed because of six new departures: the observation of fine structure. made with the electron microscope, the realization that there are many varieties of ghosts which have properties of their own, the increasing amount of evidence that some of the simplifying hypotheses regarding the osmotic behaviour of the red cell have broken down, the observation of the hitherto negleeted fragmentation phenomena, the realization that many Iytic reactions cannot be described by the equations for simple chemical reactions. and. finally. the appreciation of the fact that the mammalian red cell has a complex metabolism and that this metabolism is concerned with processes such as active ion transport.
