if you are willing to donate some time to look up all the proteins in a RBC, maybe we can then find out their half life which can probably answer your question better.

ok.. and i have another question concerning RBC. What is the function of the antibodies expressed on their surface (ABO system) and are there any functional differences btw. the antibodies of different blood groups?

antigens, not antibodies. a different antigen from a donor that the host body isnt used to will result an immediate immunological response, and thats caused by the antibodies

yes.. i ment antigens:) and i know that they cause the immunological response when blood of different type is donated, but that is their primary function? do the antigens cause response in the presence of some other substances than donor blood:) ?

no studies have been done that suggest so. Just a bunch of antigens
