ABSTRACT



The research was carried out on 20 clinically healthy dairy cows characterized by high and low milk production. Blood analysis was performed in order to determine the differences in erythrocyte cell membrane protein concentration in comparison with milk productivity. Statistically significant correlation was found between concentration of erythrocyte membrane protein and milk production in the electrophoresis test of ghost erythrocyte cell membrane protein. In the high milk production animal group, the mean concentration of total spectrin in cell membranes is higher on average by 11.23% (p≤0.001), ancirin 2.1 by 8.37% (p≤0.01) and ancirin 2.3 by 13.47% (p≤0.01) than in the low milk production animal group respectively. No significant differences were observed in the concentration [%] of other erythrocyte cell membrane proteins isolated during electrophoresis.

Key words: erythrocyte, cell membrane protein, dairy cow, milk production.
