Exclusion of Inulin from Solutions of Hyaluronic Acid

Naturevolume 187page1024 (1960) | Download Citation



THE partition of inulin between buffer and solutions containing hyaluronic acid has been observed by dialysing inulin to equilibrium between the two solutions. ‘Millipore HA’ membranes were used which are readily permeable to inulin but impermeable to hyaluronic acid. The hyaluronic acid was prepared from ox synovial fluid by the method of Ogston and Stanier1; inulin was Kerfoot biochemical reagent twice ‘recrystallized’ from dilute ammonia.
