Relationship between the 3,3′,5-Triiodo-L-thyronine Content of Thyroid as determined by a Thin-layer Chromatographic Method and the Biological Potency assayed by a Rat Anti-thiouracil Goitre Method

Abstract

IN a recent paper1, we described a method which could be used for identifying thyroxine in a feeding-stuffs additive; its separation from the other components present ii the hydrolysed iodinated protein was effected on paper and on starch-bound cellulose powder thin-layer plates.
