The mature size of rat 4-aminobutyrate aminotransferase is different in liver and brain.
The amino acid sequence predicted from a rat liver cDNA library indicated that the precursor of beta-AlaAT I (4-aminobutyrate aminotransferase, beta-alanine-oxoglutarate aminotransferase) consists ofExpand

Influence of dietary protein levels on beta-alanine aminotransferase expression and activity in rats.
beta-Alanine-oxoglutarate aminotransferase (beta-AlaAT I) and beta-alanine-pyruvate aminotransferase (beta-AlaAT II) catalyze the transamination reaction of omega-amino acids such as beta-alanine,Expand

Radioimmunoreactive serum elastase levels and histologic changes during experimental pancreatitis in rats.
A radioimmunoassay system showed elastase levels of 128 to 232 ng/mL in normal rat serum. The average normal value was approximately 64-fold greater than the minimal detectable amount. NoExpand

Changes in Plasma Progestins and Luteal Prostaglandin F2.ALPHA. Levels in Immature Pseudopregnant Rats.
To investigate the role of locally produced prostaglandin F2α (PGF2α) in luteal function, luteal PGF2α and plasma levels of progestins, progesterone, and 20α-hydroxypregn-4-en-3-one (20α-OHP) wereExpand

L-threonine supplementation increases the amplitude of the feed intake cycle of rats fed a low-protein zinc-deficient diet.
Rats fed a Zn-deficient diet show characteristic variations in feed intake. These variations were followed by means of a personal computer. The specific feed intake patterns in rats fed aExpand

The influence of various carbohydrates on the feeding pattern of rats fed zinc-deficient diets.
When dextrin, maltose, sucrose, glucose, and fructose were used as a source of carbohydrate in a diet, the food intake of rats fed either a Zn-adequate or Zn-deficient diet was evaluated daily overExpand

Preference for glucose in Zn-deficient rats selecting from glucose and fructose diets.
Glucose and fructose selection patters of rats were analyzed for 28 d by a 2-choice selection in either Zn-adequate or Zn-deficient status. In this paper, we describe the following serial studies:Expand

Purification and expression of a processing protease on β‐alanine‐oxoglutarate aminotransferase from rat liver mitochondria
GABA[arrow beta]AlaAT convertase is an endopeptidase that processes brain‐type 4‐aminobutyrate aminotransferase (GABA AT; EC to liver‐type β‐alanine‐oxoglutarate aminotransferase (β‐AlaATExpand
