Method "The mean cell volume (MCV, fl), the membrane area (A, cm^2/cell) and the cell water fraction (F[w]) of chick embryonic red blood cells change during maturation and were determined at each stage using standard haematological and microscopic techniques. The calculations of the apparent permeability coefficient and flux depend on A and the cell water volume (V[o]) (V[w]=F[w]xMCV, corrected for trapped volume between the cells (primary source [1])) and proper values were used accordingly. The values are summarized in Table 1."
Comments "F[w] is the cell water fraction determined by drying a cell sample to constant weight. The values of A and MCV for chicken red cells are from (primary source [1]), and for fetal cells from (primary source [2]). The experiments were carried out at pH 7.7."
