Glucose-6-phosphatase is an endoplasmic reticulum system which is found primarily in liver and kidney. Recently, it has become clear that it is also present in lower amounts in a variety of other tissues. Previous histochemical studies of glucose-6-phosphate hydrolysis in trachea have given equivocal results and only one study on adult oesophagus has shown glucose-6-phosphatase, enzymatic activity but without cellular localization. We have now shown, using microassay techniques, that microsomes… CONTINUE READING
