This process leads to changes in the lipid bilayer of the erythrocyte membrane, affecting its fluidity and stability.
The analysis of lipid profiles in circulating erythrocyte membranes (EM) offers an extensive information on metabolic pathways involved in lipid metabolism and can be utilized to investigate the relationship between the patterns of fatty acid metabolism and disease [12,13].

[63], we did not notice significant changing neither on lipid profile, except for LDL concentrations, nor in plasma and erythrocyte membrane PUFAs, suggesting that HT supplementation in healthy subjects, as expected, does not exert any change in lipid profile, which instead is modulated by MUFAs contained in EVOO, in accordance with Wahle et al.
(4-6, 11) The severity of HPP symptoms seen in specific individuals likely relates to the degree of erythrocyte membrane instability conferred by different spectrin mutations.
Tissue sequestration is primarily mediated by members of the parasite variant antigen family of P falciparum erythrocyte membrane protein 1, which is expressed on the membrane of infected erythrocytes.
The rigidity of the microvilli seemed high enough to induce invaginations in the erythrocyte membrane (Figure 1(a)).
Presence of additional signs including mainly neurological findings is directive especially in the diagnosis of erythrocyte membrane defects (Table 2).
(15, 16) Familial pseudohyperkalemia is an autosomal disorder characterized by abnormal passive outward leakage of potassium across the erythrocyte membrane. (17, 18) This occurs when blood is stored in room temperature.
