Synthesis of the Transferrin Receptor in Peripheral Sheep Reticulocytes: Evidence for Incomplete Oligosaccharide Processing
Studies involving red cells have provided generations of investigators with new insights into the behaviour of more complex cells. This has been particularly true in the study of membrane proteins and their functions, as well as the organization of the cytoskeleton. The behaviour of the red cell is also striking in its development and maturation, undergoing vast changes in composition, appearance and variety of catalytic functions in its voyage from stem cell to circulating erythrocyte. In fact, it may almost be true to say that the red cell continuously changes until its senescent properties are recognized and it is eliminated from the circulation.
