Cobalamin binding proteins are synthesized by the fetus from at least 16-19 gestational weeks. Cerebrospinal fluid contained transcobalamin with size and isoelectric points identical to adult transcobalamin. The unsaturated cobalamin-binding capacity in the fetal cerebrospinal fluid was comparable to adult levels, that is 0.01-0.04 nmol/l, median 0.03 nmol/l, n = 4. The unsaturated cobalamin-binding capacity in serum was low compared to adult values (0.02-0.04 nmol/l, median 0.03 nmol/l, n = 4… CONTINUE READING
