In a population of schoolchildren aged 12-15 years in which biochemical deficiencies of vitamin C, riboflavin and pyridoxine affected 30.0, 33.9 and 17.2 per cent of subjects respectively, a small but statistically significant correlation was found between VO2max and vitamin C, riboflavin, vitamin A, and parameters of iron nutrition status. The(More)
A study on the relationship between zinc nutrition status and the parameters of growth and physical development was carried out in a group of school children aged 9 to 12 years, selected from a population showing a higher prevalence of "below average" hair zinc concentrations. The growth of the children was assessed as the attained height for age in(More)
Changes in the activities of 15 different enzymes during incubation of a crude yeast extract with the purified yeast proteinases A and B, and carboxypeptidase Y, respectively, have been measured. The spectrum of action of the three proteinases on the enzymes measured differs significantly, increasing or decreasing their activities or having no effect.(More)
The effect of riboflavin administration on iron metabolism was studied in a group of riboflavin-deficient children with Erythrocyte Glutathione Reductase (EC 1.6.4.2) reactivation above 1.20. The results have shown that the administration of riboflavin has resulted in a decrease of serum iron as well as in transferrin saturation which was accompanied by an(More)
Chromatin prepared from liver tissue contains a histone-degrading enzyme activity with a pH optimum of 7.5-8.0, whereas chromatin isolated from purified nuclei is devoid of it. The histone-degrading enzyme activity was assayed with radioactively labelled total histones from Ehrlich ascites tumor cells. Among the different subcellular fractions assayed, only(More)
