Abstract:

Electrophoretic patterns of blood serums after in vitro irradiation show marked decreases in the concentration of albumin and gamma globulin. These changes are accompanied by compensatory increases in the beta and alpha components. It is postulated that perhaps albumin and gamma globulin molecules are altered by irradiation so that they become electrophoretically indistinguishable from alpha and beta proteins. Increases in biuret values were found only in human blood plasma and serum after in vitro doses of 2.54 x 106 r. Electrophoretic changes produced by in vitro irradiation of serum with massive doses parallel those changes observed after in vivo exposure to lethal and sublethal doses. Author
