Evaluation of the importance of transamination versus deamination in astrocytic metabolism of [U-13C]glutamate.


Glutamate metabolism was studied in primary cultures of cerebral cortical astrocytes to determine the significance of transamination for the oxidative metabolism of glutamate. Cultures were incubated with [U-13C]glutamate (0.5 mM) in the presence and absence of the transaminase inhibitor aminooxyacetic acid (AOAA) and in some cases with methionine… (More)
