Abstract

The change in form of the mammalian red cell from that of a biconcave disc to that of a sphere in saline, serum, or plasma to which lecithin has been added is studied in detail. The transformation is reversible, and is unaccompanied by a change in cell volume. Different quantities of lecithin are necessary to bring about the shape change in the cells of different animals.
