Recently it has become possible by chemical selection using sorbitol instead of glucose in the culture medium to produce pure astroglial cultures from astroglia-rich primary cultures from mouse brain. The glycogen-degrading enzyme glycogen phosphorylase in brain is localized in astrocytes and ependymal cells. In view of this fact it appeared necessary to study the influence of glucose and other hexoses on the glycogen metabolism in these cultures lacking the influence of other cell types in… CONTINUE READING
