Glutamine utilization by rat neutrophils: presence of phosphate-dependent glutaminase.


The capacity of rat neutrophils to utilize glutamine was investigated by 1) determination of oxygen consumption in the presence of glucose or glutamine, 2) measurement of maximal activity of phosphate-dependent glutaminase, 3) Northern blot, Western blot, and immunocytochemical detection of glutaminase, and 4) measurement of glutamine utilization and also… (More)
