Ultrastructure of hemoglobin-depleted human erythrocyte resealed ghosts.

Journal Article

Both negative-stain and freeze-fracture electron microscopic techniques revealed that the ultrastructure of resealed white ghosts prepared at high dilution during the hemolysis step is very different from that of resealed ghosts prepared at low or moderate dilution (pink ghosts). The negative-stained resealed white ghosts showed light halo substructures on membrane surfaces and protrusions at the edge of the ghosts. Freeze-fracturing of these ghosts showed that membrane blebbing had occurred and that fragments of the membranes resealed to form small right-side-out vesicles ranging from 0.1 to 0.3 micrometer in diameter.
