Spectrin oxidation correlates with membrane vesiculation in stored RBCs

, : Spectrin oxidation correlates with membrane vesiculation in stored RBCs. Blood 69(6): 1777-1781

An increase in spectrin oxidation in a variety of erythrocytes displaying a tendency to vesiculate has been previously described. To explore this relationship in more detail, we have studied blood stored in citrate-phosphate-dextrose-adenine under blood bank conditions because, in this system, vesiculation occurs slowly. Vesiculation was quantitated by measuring acetylcholinesterase release, and the extent of spectrin oxidation was detected by using thiol-disulfide exchange chromatography. A strong correlation (r = .92) was found between the extent of spectrin oxidation and vesiculation when blood from five donors was analyzed at weekly intervals during storage. This strongly suggests that spectrin oxidation plays a role in the formation of spectrin-free vesicles, thereby limiting the shelf life of stored blood.

A deletion within beta spectrin adjacent to the ankyrin-binding site precludes spectrin attachment to the membrane in hereditary spherocytosis. We describe a spectrin variant characterized by a truncated beta chain and associated with hereditary spherocytosis. The clinical phenotype consists of a moderate hemolytic anemia with striking spherocytosis and mild spiculation of the red cells....

This was correlated with turnover...
