Met5-enkephalin-arg6-phe7 content of human and rabbit plasma.


Using an adsorption technique combined with high pressure liquid chromatography and a specific radioimmunoassay, the met5-enkephalin-arg6-phe7 (YGGFMRF) content was measured in human and rabbit plasma. This heptapeptide content was 0.16 +/- 0.03, 0.20 +/- 0.05 pmol/10 ml plasma, for human and rabbit plasma, respectively. The degradation of YGGFMRF injected… (More)
