Red Cell Metabolism and Function : Proceedings of the First International Conference on Red Cell Metabolism and Function, held at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, October 1–3, 1969

In the last six years, a remarkable series of stUdies have demonstrated an intimate relationship between red cell metabolism and the function of the cell as an organ of gas transport. First came the demonstration of binding of organic phosphocompounds of the red cell to hemoglobin; this was followed...
