Sulfhydryl/disulfide forms of rat liver 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase.

Using radiation inactivation and immunoblotting techniques, evidence for functionally active forms of rat liver 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase with molecular weights of about 100,000 and 200,000 was obtained. In liver microsomes isolated from rats fed both mevinolin and colestipol, the Mr 100,000 form was the predominant species, whereas in… CONTINUE READING
