The binding of phenylbutazone to bovine and horse serum albumin

  • 41 Accesses

  • 1 Citations


Adynamic dialysis technique was used to study the protein binding of phenylbutazone to bovine and horse serum albumin. Data obtained indicates that the bovine serum albumin results are in general agreement with the previously published results. It was also found that the magnitude of binding of phenylbutazone to horse serum albumin was the same as that to bovine albumin.
