RADIOIMMUNOASSAY FOR STEROID HORMONES VI. RADIOIMMUNOASSAY FOR HUMAN PLASMA DESOXYCORTICOSTERONE
A radioimmunoassay for measurement of human plasma desoxycorticosterone (DOC) has been developed. Antiserum was raised against DOC-21-hemisuccinate conjugated to bovine serum albumin. Plasma DOC was purified from crossreacting steroids by single column chromatography (8 mm, i. d. ×260 mm, length). The coefficients of variation for within-assay and between-assay were 13.0% and 8.6 %, respectively.
