Free amino acids and some enzymes of their metabolism in the early development of the placenta

Abstract

Changes in the activity of glutamate dehydrogenases and of aspartate and alanine aminotransferases and in the concentration of free amino acids in the guinea pig placenta were discovered in the course of its development. These parameters attained their highest values on the 25th–30th day of pregnancy, i.e., at the time of definitive formation of the placenta. By the 40th day of pregnancy the activity of these enzymes and concentration of free amino acids showed a reduction and after the 45th day they remained at a certain stable level until parturiton.
