Lys- and Leu-aminopeptidase activity after acute toluene exposure in the rat brain.


Changes in Lys- and Leu-aminopeptidase activities in several brain regions of the rat, after acute toluene administration, are described in this research. Aminopeptidase activity has been suggested as a candidate regulator of the degradation of several neuroactive peptides. Lys-aminopeptidase activity was significantly decreased in the thalamus, amygdala… (More)
