Abstract:

The distribution of the protein components in normal human blood serum has been studied by paper-strip electrophoretic analysis. One hundred and four normal samples, taken from donors to the Red Cross Bank of Lawrence, Kansas, were used. The average and standard deviation values for the several components were Albumins 56.5 11.9 per cent Alpha-1 Globulins 3.4 1.7 per cent Alpha-2 Globulins 10.9 3.7 per cent Beta Globulins 12.2 4.2 per cent Gamma Globulins 17.0 5.8 per cent. Values are also presented for the protein content in grams per 100 ml Albumins 4.48 1.2 Alpha-1 Globulins .27 .14 Alpha-2 Globulins .85 .32 Beta Globulins .95 .36 Gamma Globulins 1.30 .67. The average total protein concentration in grams per 100 ml was 7.90 .87. Discussion is presented as to the significance of the fluctuations observed for the individual components of the sera.
