Phosphate activated glutaminase comprises two kinetically distinguishable enzyme forms in cultures of cerebellar granule cells, of cortical neurons and of astrocytes. Specific activity of glutaminase is higher in cultured neurons compared with astrocytes. Glutaminase is activated by phosphate in all cell types investigated, however, glutaminase in(More)
The kinetics and other properties of phosphate-activated glutaminase have for the first time been studied in the crude mitochondrial fraction (P2 fraction) from human brain. The enzyme is for unexplained reasons inactivated postmortem. The enzyme activity decreases by storing the tissue or homogenate at 37 degrees C. The inactivation is not caused by(More)
