The authors conclude that under physiological conditions in the blood (that is at high bicarbonate concentration and neutral pH) calcium enters the red cells mainly via the anion-calcium co-transport, possibly by using the anion transport system of the cell membrane. The diffusion of the positively charged calcium ions is normally negligible, but may increase under the effect of various drugs or membrane hyperpolarization.
