The terminal step in the anaerobic glycolysis of muscle in the chambered nautilus, Nautilus pompilius, is not pyruvate reduction to lactate as in vertebrate muscle. Instead of lactate dehydrogenase, these organisms utilize octopine dehydrogenase (E.C., catalyzing the reductive condensation of pyruvate and arginine, which is dependent on the(More)

1. Pyruvate kinase was partially purified from the foot, mantle, and digestive gland of active and aestivating snails. 2. At pH 7.0 the apparent Km values for phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) were 0.064 mmol/l for the enzyme from foot and 0.071 mmol/l for the enzyme from mantle; those for ADP were 0.35 mmol/l for the foot enzyme and 0.33 mmol/l for the mantle(More)
NAD(+)-linked isocitrate dehydrogenase was found in the brain, heart, gills, kidney, liver and muscle of trout, and in the liver and muscle of eel. A complex homogenization buffer containing 1 mM ADP, 5 mM MgSO4, 5 mM citrate and 40% glycerol is required for retrieval of significant amounts of stable enzyme. The highest activities were found in brain of(More)
