Influence of cobalamin deficiency compared with that of cobalamin absorption on serum holo-transcobalamin II.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Cobalamin attached to transcobalamin II (TC II), known as holo-TC II, is the active cobalamin fraction taken up by tissues. Holo-TC II is also the form in which absorbed cobalamin enters the circulation from the ileum. Therefore, holo-TC II has been proposed variously as a marker of cobalamin adequacy, cobalamin absorption, or both, including… (More)
