Radioactive Indicators in the Study of Phosphorus Metabolism in Rats
RECENT progress in the production of radioactive isotopes by neutron bombardment makes the radioactive isotope of phosphorus 15P32 easily accessible. This isotope, which has a half-life value of 17Expand

Action of Slow Neutrons on Rare Earth Elements
IN view of the discrepancy between the values obtained by different workers for the periods and the intensity of radiation emitted by the radio rare earth elements1–5 after neutron bombardment, weExpand

Elimination of Water from the Human Body
SHORTLY after the first application of radioactive isotopes as indicators, the late H. J. G. Moseley and one of the present writers discussed the prospect opened by the introduction of this method,Expand

Radiopotassium and other Artificial Radio-elements
IN a letter published in NATURE of January 19, it was shown that the bombardment of scandium with neutrons leads, beside the formation of an active scandium isotope1 20Sc46, to the formation of a newExpand

The Interpretation of the Atom
Few discoveries, if any, have influenced so rapidly and deeply physics, chemistry and many kindred sciences as that of the spontaneous disintegration of radioactive elements. The developmentExpand

Effect of X-Rays on the Incorporation of Carbon-14 into Animal Tissue
IN a recent note1, it was shown that irradiation of rats with X-rays diminishes very pronouncedly the rate of incorporation of carbon-14 into desoxyribonucleic acid. Simultaneously, an enhancedExpand

IT was observed by several experimenters1 that the incorporation of phosphorus-32 into desoxyribonucleic acid of the Jensen sarcoma, and also of normal organs, of the rat is markedly reduced byExpand

Life-Cycle of the Red Corpuscles of the Hen
THE life-cycle of the mammalian red corpuscles is not known with certainty. Values varying between 30 and 200 days are recorded. One would expect the problem to be easily solved by making use of anExpand

Rate of Renewal of Ribo‐ and Desoxyribo Nucleic Acids
Summary. Labelled sodium phosphate is administered to rats and after the lapse of 2 hours the specific activity of the ribo-nucleic acid phosphorus and that of the desoxyribo-nucleic acidExpand

Interaction between the Phosphatides of the Plasma and the Corpuscles
PLASMA and corpuscles both contain appreciable amounts of phosphatides, that is, about 80 mgm. per 100 c.c. of plasma and 200 mgm. per 100 c.c. corpuscles. To determino if any exchange takes placeExpand
