The ability of hydrazine, acetylphenylhydrazine, methylhydrazine, and phenylhydrazine to stimulate proteolysis in red cells has been characterized. All four hydrazines effectively stimulated proteolysis in red cells and in hemolysate as evidenced by a two- to threefold increase in the rate of tyrosine release. The rate of tyrosine release varied linearly… CONTINUE READING
