Human serum sialo transferrins in diseases

Clin Chim Acta. 1987 Jun 15;165(2-3):141-5. doi: 10.1016/0009-8981(87)90157-4.


Using isoelectric focusing and crossed immunoelectrophoresis on ready-made Immobiline Dry Plates, pH 5-6, we were able to separate human serum transferrin in subfractions with different sialo acid content. The amount of these subfractions is significant different in sera of patients with diseases like CA, RA, haemochromatosis and in sera of pregnant women.
