Life Span of Carbamylated Red Cells in Sickle Cell Anemia


By using three isotopes of diisopropyl-phosphofluoridate ([3H]-, [14C]-, and [32P]DFP) simultaneously, the life span of red cells from 20 patients with sickle cell anemia (Hb SS) has been studied after varying degrees of carbamylation in vitro with cyanate (NCO) and carbamyl phosphate (CP). The results are expressed in terms of the red cell mean life span (MLS).
