BACKGROUND: The development of the red blood cell (RBC) storage lesion remains incompletely understood. To gain a greater insight into the mechanisms involved, a proteomics analysis was used to identify proteins that accumulate in supernatants of standard nonleukoreduced RBC products (S-RBCs) and prestorage leukofiltered RBC products (LF-RBCs) during storage. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS: S-RBCs and LF-RBCs were collected and stored in accordance with standard blood bank procedures. Supernatant samples were collected at fortnightly intervals until product expiry (at Day 42). Maps of supernatant proteins were generated by two-dimensional (2D)-gel electrophoresis and selected proteins were identif..
