Abstract:

The accumulation of Vitamin B 1 in the liver of animals leads to an increase in the consumption of oxygen and racemic acid with liver homogenates of vitamin-treated animals. Plague toxin rarely inhibits the metabolism of racemic acid in control white mice and absolutely does not act on such in animals, an organism of which is saturated with Vitamin B 1.
