Biosynthesis of acid mucopolysaccharides by the surviving new born rat skin. I. - Kinetics of the biosynthesis at the polymer level.

1) The amounts of individual mucopolysaccharides in the new born rat skin have been estimated and their specific rates of labelling assessed in vitro. Total and percentage amounts of these polymers agree satisfactorily with previously published data. 2) Relative rates of labelling from [U14C]-glucose have been estimated by combining column chromatography… CONTINUE READING
