Azide at an effective antimicrobial concentration, 7.7 mmol/liter, inhibits neither the cytoplasmic or the mitochondrial isoenzymes of human aspartate aminotransferase (EC 2.6. 1. 1) or porcine malate dehydrogenase (EC 1.1.1.37). It markedly prolongs the usefulness of substrates in assays for estimating aspartate aminotransferase activity (aspartate… CONTINUE READING
