Abstract

THE concentration of acetate in the blood determined enzymatically1 in a number of experimental subjects was found to be about 2 µgm./ml., independent of the nutritional régime (see Table 1). Attempts to raise the level of acetate in the blood by oral ingestion of acetic acid or acetates were unsuccessful, because the experimental subjects were not able to consume a sufficient quantity of those substances.
