Studies on aspartate aminotransferase (GOT) and l-alanine aminotransferase (GPT) of Paramphistomum explanatum have shown that GPT activity has more than twice the activity of GOT. The effect of some —SH reagents like cadmium, mercury, silver and iodoacetamide revealed that both enzymes were inhibited except that GOT was insensitive to cadmium ions. GPT was found to be much more sensitive to —SH reagents than GOT. There was unusual reaction to the two thiols used, cysteine and mercaptoethanol… CONTINUE READING
