|Abstract:||In order to determine whether human umbilical cord blood erythrocytes are capable of progesterone biosynthesis, sonicated preparations of plasma- free erythrocytes at the range of total cell numbers between 18.4 x 109 and 62.9 x 109 cells obtained from umbilical cord arterial and venous blood collected from normal pregnant women (n = 6, age 28-39 years) following spontaneous vaginal delivery were incubated with [7n-3H]-pregnenolone as substrate. The leucocyte content of the incubates was negligible (|
