After a single intravenous injection of suramin the rate of removal of the drug from the plasma into other tissue compartments of the rat is independent of initial concentration. The data can be fitted to the sum of two exponential functions, consistent with a two-compartment, open model system. Trypanosomes take up only small amounts of suramin in vivo and(More)
Glycerol kinase of Trypanosoma brucei has been shown to be capable of catalysing sn-glycerol-3-phosphate dependent ADP phosphorylation for ATP generation. The rate of this reaction (Vr) is sufficient to account for the observed rate of glycerol production from anaerobic glucose metabolism by intact cells and to account for net ATP synthesis. Glycerol kinase(More)
Studies measuring the glycolytic intermediate and adenine nucleotide concentrations in Trypanosoma brucei metabolising glucose either aerobically or under conditions where glycerol-3-phosphate oxidase is inactive have shown the following: 1. Inhibition with 0.5 mM salicylhydroxamic acid (SHAM) accurately simulates anaerobic conditions in T. brucei; 2. On(More)
