Oxidative Pentose Phosphate Pathway in the Rat Heart

Abstract

The oxidative pentose phosphate pathway is poorly developed in the rat heart compared with other organs, since the activity of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G-6-PDH), the first and rate-limiting enzyme of the oxidative pentose phosphate pathway, is low. As a consequence, the available pool of 5-phosphoribosyl-l-pyrophosphate and the rate of adenine… (More)
