An attractive feature of this assay is that phagocytic activity is assessed using large sample sizes, in this(More)
The uptake, distribution, and exchange of chlorinated hydrocarbon insecticides (dieldrin and chlordecone) and biphenyls (2,4,5-2',4',5'-hexachlorobiphenyl and 3-chlorobiphenyl) among human lipoproteins was examined by fluorescence quenching, gel filtration, and ultrafiltration. The chlorinated hydrocarbons were rapidly taken up from solution or silica(More)
