Glucose metabolism in Mycobacterium smegmatis was investigated by the radiorespirometric method and by assaying for key enzymes of the major energy-yielding pathways. Glucose is oxidized in this organism mainly through the Embden-Meyerhof-Parnas pathway, irrespective of the carbon source used for growth. The pentose phosphate pathway plays only a minor role(More)
Rats were made atherogenic by feeding a synthetic diet containing high fat (20%) and cholesterol (2%) for two, three or four weeks. For alpha-tocopherol acetate supplementation studies, the rats on atherogenic diet for two weeks received alpha-tocopherol acetate 5 mg or 20 mg/100 g body weight once daily, orally for two weeks along with the atherogenic(More)
An aldolase was partially purified from fermenter grownMycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv cells. The aldolase has a molecular weight of 150,000, possesses a tetrameric structure and cleaves both fructose diphosphate and fructose-1-phosphate, the former being cleaved 17 times faster. The enzyme was inactivated by treatment with NaBH4 in the presence of(More)
