Tryptophan metabolism along the kynurenine pathway in rats.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that, in rat, tryptophan is mainly metabolised along the kynurenine pathway, and rat is a suitable animal model for studying tryPTophan metabolism in the pathological field.
Enzyme activities along the kynurenine pathway in mice.
TLDR
Results demonstrate that, in mouse, tryptophan is mainly metabolised along the kynurenine pathway, with liver showing the highest activity; aminocarboxymuconate-semialdehyde decarboxylase, which showed similar values in both liver and kidney, showed activity markedly lower than 3-hydroxyanthranilate 3,4-dioxygenase.

Kynurenine pathway enzymes in guinea pigs.
TLDR
The activities of the enzymes of the kynurenine pathway were determined and guinea pig is an animal model suitable for studying tryptophan metabolism.
Metabolism of tryptophan along the kynurenine pathway in alloxan diabetic rabbits.
TLDR
In diabetic rabbits, there is an alteration of tryptophan metabolism at the level of 3-hydroxyanthranilic acid --> nicotinic acid step, which has the effect of reducing the biosynthesis of NAD in diabetes.

Tryptophan degradation in mice initiated by indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase.
TLDR
Findings indicated that indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase actively oxidized tryptophan in mice and that its induction resulted in an increase in tryPTophan degradation.
Tryptophan pyrrolase of rabbit intestine. D- and L-tryptophan-cleaving enzyme or enzymes.
TLDR
An enzyme that catalyzes the formation of formyl-d-kynurenine from d-tryptophan was purified about 100-fold from a homogenate of rabbit small intestine and several lines of evidence indicated the involvement of heme in the catalysis by the enzyme.
Metabolites and enzyme activities involved in tryptophan metabolism in two different strains of mouse.
TLDR
Correlation between total urinary excretion of the tryptophan metabolites and enzyme activities appears in the same strain of mice, even though differences are present in different strains.

TLDR
It is suggested that the saturation of rat liver apo-(tryptophan pyrrolase) with its haem activator can be modified by treatment known to cause destruction, inhibition of synthesis, increased utilization and enhanced synthesis of liver haem.
