(17) Ferric iron in aqueous solution was used as an iron-only control.
(18) The implications of inhibition of protein kinase C by adriamycin-iron(III) are discussed.
(19) The duodenal mucosa of genotypically normal iron replete and iron deficient mice and mice with sex-linked (sla) and microcytic anemias (mk) was examined for the presence of iron-binding proteins.
