• biconcave
  • Although erythrocytes are flexible (which permits them to squeeze through capillaries), they typically have a distinctive biconcave shape that helps maximize surface area to facilitate the exchange of gases. (giantmicrobes.com)
  • Influence
  • The studies have shown, that under the influence of the Saransk's tap water with the high concentration of the fluoride, iron, calcium and magnesium ions (experience 3) in the pregnant albino rats' blood as compared with the non-pregnant animals (experience 2) there is the increase in the number of erythrocytes by 20. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • This is an important property because erythrocytes must change their shape extensively under the influence of mechanical forces in fluid flow or while passing through microcirculation. (wikipedia.org)
  • cells
  • When your blood is placed in a tall, thin tube, red blood cells (erythrocytes) gradually settle to the bottom. (drugs.com)
  • Each blood sample was then centrifuged on percoll to separate IC bound to erythrocytes from IC in plasma or bound to buffy coat cells. (jci.org)
  • This resulted in an "erythrocyte fraction" beneath the percoll that contained the IC bound to erythrocytes, and a "plasma/buffy coat fraction" above the percoll that contained the IC in plasma and IC bound to buffy coat cells. (jci.org)
