The hexokinase: fumarase ratios of mitochondria isolated from ten tissues of the rat were determined, and compared with the tissue content of phosphoglucomutase and phosphorylase, taken as representatives of enzymes concerned with glycogen metabolism. A generally inverse relationship was found between the mitochondrial hexokinase: fumarase ratio and phosphoglucomutase levels. The cytochrome: fumarase ratios were relatively invariant in these same mitochondria. The results are interpreted as… CONTINUE READING
