1. Measurable incorporation of radioactive carbon from [U-14C]pyruvate, [U-14C]-glutamate and [14C]bicarbonate into the glycogen synthesized by brain slices in vitro was demonstrated. 2. The fructose diphosphatase activity of guinea-pig brain was determined and found to be about 0.03 mumol of substrate degraded/min per g of fresh tissue. 3. The specific radioactivity of the glucose carbon from glycogen relative to that of the precursor added to the incubation medium gave approximate values of 0… CONTINUE READING
