To study the developmental controls for both intestinal and placental calcium-binding protein (CaBP), we have altered mineral metabolism by feeding pregnant mice diets high in calcium and strontium. The effects of these dietary changes on CaBP content of maternal intestine and placenta and also on fetal mineral accumulation have been measured. Feeding(More)
A protein similar to rat intestinal calcium-binding protein (CaBP) has been identified in both mouse placenta and mouse small intestine. The mouse protein had a molecular weight of approximately 10,000, exhibited cation-binding properties, and demonstrated immunologic identity with vitamin D-dependent rat CaBP. Under normal dietary conditions, the(More)
A heat extract prepared from radiolabeled Salmonella cells was used to determine if covalent binding to activated surface of polystyrene plates would improve antigen retention thus contributing to increase sensitivity in an enzyme immunoassay for Salmonella antigen. The effect of treatment with ethylchloroformate on the retention of antigens passively(More)
