This is a record of the concentrations of the nonenzyme components of the Embden-Meyerhof system in mouse brain measured at brief intervals after the production of complete ischemia by decapitation. All of the 18 recognized active components were looked for. Of these, 1,3-diphosphoglycerate did not reach levels measurable by the procedures used. Additional(More)
Metabolic control analyses of glucose utilization were performed for four groups of working rat hearts perfused with Krebs-Henseleit buffer containing 10 mM glucose only, or with the addition of 4 mM D-beta-hydroxybutyrate/1 mM acetoacetate, 100 nM insulin (0.05 unit/ml), or both. Net glycogen breakdown occurred in the glucose group only and was converted(More)
In the preceding paper (1) are recorded the concentrations in mouse brain of the substrates and cofactors of the EmbdenMeyerhof pathway, and the changes in concentration when the glycolytic rate is increased many fold by sudden ischemia (decapitation). In this paper, the concentrations found are examined in relationship to the activity and kinetic(More)
Diphosphopyridine nucleotide and triphosphopyridine nucleotide when used in appropriate enzyme systems become exceedingly useful reagents for the measurement of almost any biochemical substance. A companion paper describes procedures for measuring each of the pyridine nucleotides, whether in the oxidized or reduced form, at concentrations as low as 1O-g M(More)
Hippocampal slices were prepared under three conditions: (1) in medium containing glucose and oxygen at 4 degrees C; (2) as in (1), but at 37 degrees C; (3) in medium devoid of glucose and oxygen at 37 degrees C. The rates of recovery to roughly steady-state levels and through 8 h of incubation were monitored for energy metabolite levels and related(More)
