Insulin Receptor Characteristics of Erythrocytes from Human Newborns

By Kanwal K. Gambhir, Shriniwas G. Nerurkar, Teresa Allen, Ruth M. Hill, H. S. Sekhon and Lennox S. Westney


Erythrocytes from human newborns were observed to have specific insulin receptors. The characteristics of these receptors were similar to those of the normal adult subjects. An observed slight increase in Ro and a decrease in K̄e of insulin receptors in erythrocytes may be speculated to facilitate the transfer of insulin from the fetal erythrocytes to other rapidly growing fetal tissues at a rate faster than that present in the circulation of the adult subjects
