Red Blood Cell Biology Laboratory

The¬†Red Cell Biology Laboratory¬†at the¬†Section of Cell Biology and Biophysics¬†of the¬†Dept. of Biology¬†(NKUA, School of Sciences) launched its activity in late¬†80’s. It carries out research on the structure, molecular¬†physiology¬†and¬†biochemistry of RBCs¬†in vivo and in vitro. For over 15 years it has been specialized in the study of¬†RBC storage lesion, namely, modifications that happen during storage of RBCs in anticoagulant/preservative/additive solutions at blood banks, and its effects on transfusion therapy, as well as in the study of¬†extracellular vesicles (mostly in plasma).

More specifically, our research activities focus on

RBC

morphology

and ultrastructure

RBC

aging, surface removal signaling,
erythrophagocytosis
 and eryptosis

RBC

protein and lipid composition, proteome, regulation of proteostasis

RBC

redox and energy metabolism

RBC

stress responses to stimuli corresponding to control or disease states

EVs

membrane microvesiculation - Release of EVs in plasma
