The degradation of main membrane proteins, spectrin and band 3 protein, was studied in erythrocyte membranes of elderly diabetic patients and of healthy donors of various ages. In general, the rates of proteolysis were higher in diabetics. The degradation intensity depended on the sex of the diabetic patients and on the age of healthy donors.
