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

Identity of D-3-aminoisobutyrate-pyruvate aminotransferase with alanine-glyoxylate aminotransferase 2.
D-3-Aminoisobutyrate-pyruvate aminotransferase (EC 2.6.1.40) and alanine-glyoxylate aminotransferase 2 (EC 2.6.1.44) were co-purified from rat liver as a single protein. The ratio of the twoExpand

Cloning of rat dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase and correlation of its mRNA increase in the rat liver with age.
Overlapping cDNAs encoding dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase (DPD), the rate-limiting enzyme of pyrimidine degradation, were isolated from a rat liver cDNA library, and a 4,353 bp cDNA sequence with aExpand

Behavior of alginate gel beads containing chitosan salt prepared with water-soluble vitamins.
Alginate gel beads were prepared which contained weak acid salts of chitosan (Alg-CS) and water-soluble vitamins (e.g. ascorbic acid (AS)) and the behavior of the beads, uptake of bile acids wasExpand

Inhibitory effect of ethanol administration on beta-alanine-2-oxoglutarate aminotransferase (GABA aminotransferase) in disulfiram-pretreated rats.
Ethanol in the presence of disulfiram (N,N,N',N'-tetraethylthiuram disulfide, an inhibitor of aldehyde dehydrogenase) inhibited liver beta-alanine-oxoglutarate aminotransferase (beta-AlaAT I)Expand

Effect of dietary protein on pyrimidine-metabolizing enzymes in rats.
The effect of dietary protein on pyrimidine-metabolizing enzymes was studied in the rat. The activities of dihydropyrimidine dehydrogenase and beta-ureidopropionase in the livers of rats fed aExpand

Inhibition of D-3-aminoisobutyrate-pyruvate aminotransferase by 5-fluorouracil and alpha-fluoro-beta-alanine.
Among pyrimidine derivatives, we found that 5-fluorouracil potently inhibited purified rat liver D-3-aminoisobutyrate-pyruvate aminotransferase, whereas 5-fluorouridine did so to a much lesserExpand
