Activities of neuronal and astrocytic marker enzymes in autopsied brain tissue from patients with hepatic encephalopathy

Abstract

Activities of the γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and cholinergic nerve-terminal marker enzymes glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD) and choline acetyltransferase (CAT) as well as the astrocytic enzyme glutamine synthetase (GS) were measured in homogenates of dissected brain tissue obtained at autopsy from nine cirrhotic patients dying in hepatic encephalopathy and… (More)
