Abstract: We report here a quantitative analysis of the interaction of the non-ionic surfactant Triton X-100 with human erythrocyte membranes. By applying a classical treatment for the interpretation of the action of surface active compounds to the hemolytic curves, we could calculate parameters such as R-e-the effective surfactant/lipid molar ratio for erythrocyte membrane saturation (R-e(sat)) and total lysis (R-e(sol))-and K-b, the binding constant of Triton X-100 to human erythrocyte membranes. The K-b (5900 M-1) and R-e (1.58 and 2.14) values presented here are in good agreement with literature data for Triton X-100 solubilization of model phospholipid membranes.
