Soybean (Glycine soja var Beeson) formate dehydrogenase has been isolated, purified, and partially characterized by affinity chromatography. The enzyme is a dimer having a total molecular weight of 100,000 and a subunit weight of 47,000. It has activity over a broad pH range, is stable for months at 4 degrees C, and has K(m) values of 0.6 millimolar and 5.7(More)
Hydroxypyruvate and glycolate inhibited the oxidation of [U-14C]glyoxylate to [14C]oxalate in isolated perfused rat liver, but stimulated total oxalate and glycolate synthesis. [14C]Oxalate synthesis from [14C]glycine was similarly inhibited by hydroxypyruvate, but conversion of [14C1]glycolate to [14C]oxalate was increased three-fold. Pyruvate had no(More)
Less than 3 per cent of the [1-14C]glycolate administered, orally to fasted and nonfasted male Wistar rats was excreted in the feces in 48 hr. This finding indicates that the glycolate was readily absorbed from the digestive tract. An average of 3 per cent of the administered [1-14C]glycolate was also recovered in 48 hr as urinary [14C]oxalate from fasted(More)
[14C]Oxalate was found in the urine of fasted male Wistar rats fed L-[14C3]-serine, DL-[14C1]serine, [14C1]ethanolamine, [14C1]hydroxypyruvate, [14C3]-hydroxypyruvate, [14C1]glycolate or [14C2]glyoxylate. [14C1]Hydroxypyruvate and [14C1]ethanolamine were the least effective precursors of [14C]oxalate. 20% of the [14C1]serine and [14C3]serine administered(More)
