  • W. Ramsay
  • Medicine
    Journal of clinical pathology
  • 1 September 1973
TLDR
A screening procedure is described which involves the sequential quantitative use of ion exchange and gel filtration in testing the extent to which two published methods fulfil the recommended criteria for estimation of serum transferrin by iron-binding capacity.
Age-related storage of iron in the liver of horses
  • W. Ramsay
  • Medicine
    Veterinary Research Communications
  • 2005
TLDR
There was a highly significant age-related increase in the non-haem iron concentration in the liver (r=0.635,p<0.001), but not in the muscles, in which the iron concentration was much lower than in the Liver.
The determination of iron in blood plasma or serum.
  • W. Ramsay
  • Biology
    Clinica chimica acta; international journal of…
  • 1957
TLDR
A new method based on the experience of the author in determining non-haem iron in the chick embryo and its liver is described, with illustrative examples of its use and comparisons with the results of others.
Iron metabolism in the laying hen.
TLDR
The laying hen excretes relatively large quantities of iron in the eggs, and a good layer may lose 150-200 mg.
THE SEPARATION OF FERRITIN AND HAEMOSIDERIN FOR STUDIES IN THE METABOLISM OF IRON.
TLDR
The ferritin fraction has been identified by its solubility, its appearance under the electron microscope, crystallization with Cd(2+) and the fact that it corresponds quantitatively to the heat-stable portion of the tissue non-haem iron.
Some effects of oestradiol benzoate on iron metabolism in the immature pullet.
  • W. Ramsay, E. Campbell
  • Biology, Medicine
    Quarterly journal of experimental physiology and…
  • 16 July 1956
TLDR
The injection of œstradiol benzoate into pullets 12–14 weeks old caused a fall in blood haemoglobin and a large rise in plasma iron and a possible slight increase in non-haem iron in the liver.
