1. Serum from normal subjects has been chromatographed on Sephadex G-200 columns and the fractions containing transcobalamins 0, I and II have been identified. 2. The fractions corresponding to transcobalamin I contained, on average, 90% of the endogenous vitamin B12. Only 3% was attached to transcobalamin 0, and 7% was bound to transcobalamin II.
Under carefully controlled conditions electronic cell counters, for example the Coulter Counter, Model FN, and Channelyzer, may be calibrated to give MCV values down to as small as 20 fl which agree with those derived from the centrifugation PCV (corrected for plasma trapping) and the red cell count. The MCV values will be too high if the instrument uses a… (More)

1. Plasma samples from ten mammals were chromatographed on Sephadex G-200 columns and the total cobalamin content of each fraction was determined. 2. Unlike the situation in man, the bulk of the endogenous plasma cobalamin was found attached to a transcobalamin II-like protein in all ten animals. Transcobalamin 0 carried between 3 and 20% and this… (More)
A simple method is described for analysing leucocyte-volume distribution curves to obtain a differential leucocyte-count. The results derived by this method agree well with the differential counts obtained by microscopical examination of the stained blood-film.
Cell volume-distribution curves may be analysed using log-probability paper or by considering volumes corresponding to frequencies of 50 or 60% of that at the mode. All methods give similar results; the log-probability paper method is better because it allows the researcher to check that the underlying distribution is lognormal; methods based on 50 or 60%… (More)
Red cell volume distribution curves have been used to measure microcytosis and anisocytosis in normal subjects, blood donors and patients with iron deficiency anaemia. These measurements were more sensitive than the conventional red cell indices for detecting blood donors with a low transferrin saturation. Three stages are suggested as iron deficiency… (More)
When trace quantities of labelled albumin have been added to blood, the packed cell volume (PCV) may be determined by isotope counting using the relationship: (plasma counts-blood counts)/(plasma counts). This method for measuring the PCV is not affected by plasma trapping between the red cells and the results do not depend upon the centrifugation… (More)
