Erythroid Cells by Marie-Jeanne Heynen (auth.), J. Robin Harris (eds.)

By Marie-Jeanne Heynen (auth.), J. Robin Harris (eds.)

This sequence of books, dedicated to points of blood mobile biochemistry, improvement, immu­ nology, and ultrastructure, has advanced and separated from the usual Plenum sequence Subcellular Biochemistry. it's the goal of those volumes to attract jointly similar parts of research and to supply, within the fullness of time, whole insurance of this speedily advancing very important biomedical self-discipline. either primary and medically utilized subject matters, facing general and pathological cells, might be incorporated. This, the 1st quantity of the sequence, incorporates a different selection of chapters, all of which relate to erythroid cells. the variety of fabric integrated is very extensive and the authors have used contrasting technical techniques, either inside of their own experimen­ tal stories and inside of their manuscripts. This has resulted in the construction of a truly curiosity­ ing compilation, which does, however, own a powerful total thematic solidarity. as with any edited volumes, a few subject matters of value and curiosity will not be integrated. this can be due to oversight on my half, as editor, or as the authors initially chosen didn't post their manuscript by means of the agreed-upon submission date. For those omissions I take complete accountability and belief that no less than many of the subject matters passed over, for example membrane cation shipping platforms, should be lined inside of a destiny quantity of the sequence. This publication commences with chapters of a developmental nature.

Superlattices and Other Heterostructures: Symmetry and Optical Phenomena

Superlattices and different Heterostructures offers with the optical homes of superlattices and quantum good constructions with emphasis on phenomena ruled by way of crystal symmetries. After a short advent to team idea and symmetries, tools for calculating spectra of electrons, excitons, and phonons in heterostructures are mentioned.

Sample text

Patches of evenly spaced ribosomes are distributed in an asymmetrical and irregular way along the membranes (Figure 3b). , 1978). After the last cell division, there is an important reduction of the amount of RER per unit volume cytoplasm (Heynen and Verwilghen, 1982). In the nonproliferating late erythroblasts and reticulocytes (Figures 7, 8a), the endoplasmic reticulum consists mainly of clear agranular cisternae and vesicles. Part of these elements originate from endocytosis of the plasma membrane, which brings about the remodeling of an irregularly shaped reticulocyte into a biconcave erythrocyte (Gasko and Danon, 1974).

1983). Like glycophorins A and B, band 3 is not expressed by committed erythroid stem cells but is instead expressed at about the time that hemoglobin synthesis occurs. Fukuda et at. (1980) demonstrated that erythroblasts grown in vitro expressed little band 3, as indicated by radiolabeling of cell membrane proteins and detection of protein with the molecular weight and labeling characteristics of band 3 in SDS-polyacrylamide gels. Thus, band 3 is most likely expressed just slightly later than glycophorin A.
