Abstract

1. The ATP dependent acetyl-, propionyl- and butyryl-CoA synthetase activities were measured in the soluble fraction of both guinea-pig heart and liver mitochondria. 2. When measured in 300 mM Tris-HC1, the V of propionate activation in heart (equals 892 munits/mg protein) is much higher than the V of acetate (equals 637 munits/mg protein) and butyrate… (More)
