The Role of Red Blood Cell Deformability and Na,K-ATPase Function in Selected Risk Factors of Cardiovascular Diseases in Humans: Focus on Hypertension, Diabetes Mellitus and Hypercholesterolemia
Deformability of red blood cells (RBC) is the ability of RBC to change their shape in order to pass through narrow capillaries in circulation. Deterioration in deformability of RBC contributes to alterations in microcirculatory blood flow and delivery of oxygen to tissues. Several factors are responsible for maintenance of RBC deformability. One of them is the Na,K-ATPase known as crucial enzyme in maintenance of intracellular ionic homeostasis affecting thus regulation of cellular volume andfatcat:wyn6cwolnvfkfodx6zturm26ie
