The measurement of the oxidation-reduction potential of ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) is desirable in the elucidation of its physiological action and from the data presented, it is not possible to accept this interpretation without reservation. Expand
The formation of glycocyamine in animal tissues
It was shown in preceding communications that glycocyamine is converted into creatine by surviving liver slices, but this work found no evidence of this methylating mechanism in any other tissues, except possibly slight activity in the kidney. Expand
The hydrolysis of phosphocreatine and the origin of urinary creatinine.
It was conclusively proved by Bloch, Schoenheimer, and Rittenberg by isotope tracer evidence that creatinine was the only normal urinary constituent containing any significant amount of body creatine nitrogen. Expand
The oxidation of ascorbic acid and its reduction in vitro and in vivo
The outstanding chemical property of ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is that it is a reducing agent. The suggestion is obvious that its physiological function may be associated with this property, and, ifExpand
Two Inducers of Rapid Erythroblast Multiplication in vitro
Autoradiographic experiments showed that the newly formed erythroblasts all came from marrow cells, greater in the basophils than in the acidophils. Expand
New biochemical approach to the treatment of congestive heart failure.
Factors affecting protein synthesis in vitro in rabbit reticulocytes.
In order to obtain a maximal rate of protein synthesis the reaction mixture was improved further by adding to it certain substances which depend upon added iron for their effect, which increased the effect of plasma. Expand
