Abstract

Serum deoxycytidylate deaminase (EC 3.5.4.12, dCMP deaminase) activity was routinely estimated over 7 years in 2460 pregnancies. The results confirm that elevated dCMP deaminase activity (greater than 4.8 units) is associated with the development of pre-eclampsia but not with essential hypertension in pregnancy; a high rising level can precede eclampsia… (More)
