Na+-dependent, electroneutral L-ascorbate transport across brush border membrane vesicles from guinea pig small intestine.
In brush border vesicles from guinea pig small intestine L-ascorbate transport is Na+-dependent and electroneutral (in the presence of Na+, as shown by its lack of response to either positive orExpand

Isocitrate lyase of conifers (Pinus pinea).
1. Isocitrate lyase has been purified about 60 times from the conifer Pinus pinea. A first characterization was made. 2. The high instability is an important feature of this enzyme from higherExpand

Is the salivary "ferning" a reliable index of the fertile period?
We found that the fern leaf crystallisation of human saliva is a non-specific phenomenon, independent on the action of estrogenic hormones. Salivary ferning can be obtained in practice during theExpand

A new continuous optical assay for isocitrate lyase
A new continuous optical assay method for isocitrate lyase is reported. This is a coupled assay which requires lactate dehydrogenase as an ancillary enzyme. The method yields linear data up to 0.12Expand

Multisite inhibition of Pinus pinea isocitrate lyase by phosphate.
Our results show that the phosphate ion is a nonlinear competitive inhibitor of Pinus pinea isocitrate lyase. In addition, this compound induces a sigmoidal response of the enzyme, which usuallyExpand

Gravitational stress on germinating Pinus pinea seeds.
In the germination of lipid-rich seeds, the glyoxylate cycle plays a control role in that, bypassing the two decarboxylative steps of the Krebs cycle; it allows the net synthesis of carbohydratesExpand
