A spectrophotometric assay method for determining succinate dehydrogenase activity is described in which iodonitrotetrazolium chloride is used as a final electron acceptor. The enzyme activity is determined by measuring the formation of formazan due to the tetrazolium salt reduction. The assay is continuous, rapid, simple, and sensitive, and may be used in(More)

Pyrithiamine-induced thiamin deficiency has been used in rat as an experimental form of Wernicke-Korsakoff encephalopathy, a disease associated with chronic alcoholism. Although the main etiological factor is known to be the lack of thiamin, the biochemical mechanisms involved in the pathogenesis remain unclear. Thiamin-dependent enzymes were studied in(More)

1. Various mitogens such as concanavalin A, phytohaemagglutinin, the pokeweed mitogen and trypsin were found to produce a rapid and transient activation of glycogen phosphorylase activity of lymphocytes incubated in a Krebs-Ringer-bicarbonate-glucose buffer. 2. Activation of the enzyme by these mitogens was always accompanied by an increase in the(More)
