Colonic mucosal lysosomal enzyme activities in ulcerative colitis


Optimal assay conditions and kinetic properties of three acid hydrolase activities, acid phosphatase, arylsulfatase, and β-glucuronidase and a non-lysosomal alkaline phosphatase activity, were determined in colon mucosa from 12 normal subjects and compared to mucosa from 5 patients with ulcerative colitis. There were significant decreases in specific… (More)
