Short Communications Biochemistry and Biophysics, Metabolism, Neurobiology, Pharmacology


Fructose-1,6-diphosphate counteracts potassium ejection and proton uptake induced in rat red blood cells by valinomycin and an uncoupler. The effect on potassium ejection is reduced in the presence of ouabain and divalent cations.
