The metabolism of β1C-globulin labeled with iodine-131 was studied in six normal individuals and in three individuals with glomerulonephritis who exhibited markedly reduced serum concentrations of this protein. Fractional of serum β1C-globulin in glomerulonephritis appears to be chiefly secondary to decreased synthesis.
