The haemoglobin, haematocrit, erythrocyte count, transferrin and serum iron values of a group of 65 healthy young people aging from 18-25 years were determined. Ferritin in serum was quantitated by radioimmunoassay to determine the usefulness of this assay in reflecting iron stores of healthy people.
1. Rat reticulocytes previously incubated with ((59)Fe, (125)I)-labelled transferrin were hemolysed to yield labelled ghosts. 2. The solubilized ghosts can be fractionated, by gel filtration on Sepharose 2B and 6B, into several (59)Fe- and (125)I-containing compounds, classified as A, B(1) and B(2). 3. These fractions were prepared from ghosts which were… (More)
Hexachlorobenzene (HCB) induces a porphyria characterized by a diminished activity of the enzyme uroporphyrinogen decarboxylase (URO-D), presumably due to inactivation by reactive metabolites of HCB. We studied the effect of iron on HCB porphyria in female rats, to determine whether the iron dependent process of lipid peroxidation was involved in the… (More)
