Distribution of opine dehydrogenases and lactate dehydrogenase activities in marine animals
Abstract 1. 1. Opine dehydrogenases (OpDHs) and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) activities were determined in various marine animals. OpDHs were detected in six marine invertebrate phyla; Porifera,Expand
Distribution of neuroexcitatory amino acids in marine algae
Abstract Contents of three neuroexcitatory amino acids, N- methyl- d,l -aspartic acid (NMA), kainic acid (KA) and domoic acid (DA) were investigated in 46 marine algae species. NMA was detected inExpand
The occurrence of N-methyl-D-aspartic acid in muscle extracts of the blood shell, Scapharca broughtonii.
A novel ninhydrin-positive compound, N-methyl-D-aspartic acid, was identified in the muscle extracts of the blood shell, Scapharca broughtonii. This compound is already known to have potentExpand
Nonradioactive assay for adenosine 5'-phosphosulfate sulfotransferase using reversed-phase ion-pair high-performance liquid chromatography.
A nonradioactive and simple method for the assay of adenosine 5'-phosphosulfate sulfotransferase (APSSTase) is described. The method is based upon the quantitative measurement of the substrateExpand
Specific determination of histamine in fish by high-performance liquid chromatography after diazo coupling.
A new approach to the pre-column derivatization and analysis of histamine by HPLC is described, the method being based upon the formation of a diazo-coupled derivative of histamine. ThisExpand
Purification and properties of tauropine dehydrogenase from a red alga, Rhodoglossum japonicum
Tauropine dehydrogenase which is a member of ‘opine’ dehydrogenases and catalyzes the reductive condensation of taurine with pyruvate was purified from a red alga, Rhodoglossum japonicum using aExpand
Studies on the extracts from the muscle of molluscs - VIII. Isolation of D-rhodoic acid from the abalone muscle.
In the strongly acidic fraction of the muscle extract of abalone Haliotis discus hannai, an unique compound which showed very weak ninhydrin reaction was detected by paper electrophoresis. It wasExpand
