[Aldehyde dehydrogenase activity in the barrier brain structures].

The histochemical method was used to study the aldehyde dehydrogenase (EC 1.2.1.3.; ALDH) activity in capillaries and glial structures of different regions in the rat central nervous system (CNS). The occurrence of three metabolic barriers for aldehydes on systemic level in the CNS has been shown. They are: the barrier between blood and the nervous tissue… CONTINUE READING
