Average concentration of Zinc across erythrocyte

Value 2.8e-4 M
Organism Human Homo sapiens
Reference Marvin RG et al., Fluxes in "free" and total zinc are essential for progression of intraerythrocytic stages of Plasmodium falciparum. Chem Biol. 2012 Jun 22 19(6):731-41. doi: 10.1016/j.chembiol.2012.04.013. p.732 left column bottom paragraphPubMed ID22726687
Method Submicron resolution X-ray fluorescence microprobe (XFM) microscopy
Comments "Total zinc analysis within uninfected erythrocytes by XFM revealed an average concentration across the cell of 2.8(6)?10^-4 M( Figure 1 B). Given an erythrocyte volume of 70 fl, this corresponds to 12 million zinc atoms per cell."
