Target

  • Relevance
    Vitamin B12 is a member of the vitamin B complex. It contains cobalt, and so is also known as cobalamin. It is exclusively synthesised by bacteria and is found primarily in meat, eggs and dairy products. There has been considerable research into proposed plant sources of vitamin B12. Fermented soya products, seaweeds, and algae such as spirulina have all been suggested as containing significant B12. However, the present consensus is that any B12 present in plant foods is likely to be unavailable to humans and so these foods should not be relied upon as safe sources. Vitamin B12 is necessary for the synthesis of red blood cells, the maintenance of the nervous system, and growth and development in children. Deficiency can cause anaemia. Vitamin B12 neuropathy, involving the degeneration of nerve fibres and irreversible neurological damage, can also occur.

Answer

Danke für Ihre Anfrage.

Ich muss Ihnen hiermit bestätigen, dass ab31510 nicht für WB und IP getestet und garantiert.

Da Vitamin B 2 kein Protein ist, kann es nicht auf einen SDS Gel "aufgetrennt" und deshalb halte ich es für nicht möglich Vitamin B12 mittels WB nachzuweisen.

Theoretisch wäre es meiner Meinung jedoch möglich mit ab31510 Vitamin B12 immunozupräzipitieren. Welche Art von Nachweismethode danach angewendet werden sollte kann ich leider nicht empfehlen.

Es tut mir leid, dass ich keine positive Antwort für Sie habe und hoffe, dass diese Information dennoch hilfreich ist.
