Article metrics

Abstract

IN a report dealing with the biosynthesis of milk components by the cow, Kleiber1 described the use of sodium formate labelled with carbon-14 as one of the precursors. This communication reports the transfer of carbon-14 to the components of goat's milk when formate was the precursor.
