Approximately the same levels of six of the seven enzymes catalyzing reactions of the pentose phosphate pathway are in the cisternae of washed microsomes from rat heart, spleen, lung, and brain. Renal and hepatic microsomes also have detectable levels of these enzymes except ribulose-5-phosphate epimerase and ribose-5-phosphate isomerase. Their location in the cisternae is indicated by their latencies, i.e. requirement for disruption of the membrane for activity. In addition, transketolase… CONTINUE READING
