Glycyl-L-glutamine regulates the expression of asymmetric acetylcholinesterase molecular forms in cultured cardiac post-natal myocytes.

Asymmetric acetylcholinesterase (AChE) forms were associated with pre-natal but not post-natal ventricular myocytes, when myocytes were cultured in a defined medium on laminin-coated plates for 72 h. In contrast, globular AChE molecular forms were associated with both pre-natal and post-natal myocytes. Glycyl-L-glutamine (10(-4) or 109-6) M), but not glycyl… CONTINUE READING
