value. True Mucin and Nucle0albumin.--These two substances have
physical properties in common, react to some tests in the same
manner, and thus have sometimes been confused. True mucin is
derived from the intact epithelial cells lining the genitourinary
tract, and may entangle cells and other material to form the
nubecula. Although the secretion of mucin by the epithelium lming
the genitourinary tract is small compared with that secreted by
epithelium of the alimentary tract, it is generally stated to be
secreted by the former. Mucin contains a carbohydrate group but no
phosphorus. It is precipitated by dilute phosphoric acid, but is
soluble in excess of acetic acid. Sodium chlorid keeps it in
solution. Nucleoalbumin, on the other hand, _ is formed by the
disintegration of the nuclei of desquamated cells and possioly by
cells from other sources. It contains. phosphorus, and is not

mucous membrane inflammatory processes are apt to produce an

appear in the urine in diabetes mellitus, but does not do so
commonly. If it is present, boiling the glucose-free urine with F
ehling's solution produces a greenish color. Sugars other than
dextrose (glucose or grape-sugar) may appear in the urine, and
owing to their different responses to chemical tests it is
necessary to recognize...
