A procedure for the generation and isolation of internal peptide fragments for less than 10 micrograms of protein bound to either polyvinylidene difluoride (PVDF) or nitrocellulose membranes after electrophoretic transfer from sodium dodecyl sulfate-polyacrylamide gels (SDS-PAGE) is presented. This technique has produced internal sequence data for 120(More)
Groups of C57BL/Do (black and albino) mice were injected with graded activities of 226Ra, 239Pu, 241Am, 249Cf, or 252Cf and were followed throughout life. Bone sarcoma was the principal radiation-induced end point, and the risks associated with average skeletal doses of the four transuranium radionuclides, relative to radium, were determined. The relative(More)
Decorporation of Pu and Am by tetrameric catechoylamide (CAM) ligands has been investigated in beagles and mice. Eight dogs were injected intravenously (iv) with 237 + 239Pu(IV) + 241Am(III) citrate, and 30 min later, pairs of dogs were injected iv with 30 mumole/kg of 3,4,3-LICAM(C) [N1,N5,N10,N14-tetrakis(2,3-dihydroxy-5-sulfobenzoyl)tetr aazatetradecane,(More)
The intraocular radiotoxicity of intravenously injected 226Ra and 228Ra was studied in beagle dogs. Approximately 0.071% of injected radium was retained in each eye of beagles following intravenous administration. The retention was principally in the tapetum and the intraocular pigmented structures where significant pigmentary lesions were produced. These(More)
