Tissue Cystathionine in Mice Treated with Cysteine and Homoserine

Abstract

Extract: Mouse brain was demonstrated to concentrate DL-homoserine and L-cysteine from plasma. Simultaneous injection of 7.5 μmoles DL-homoserine and L-cysteine intraperitoneally to mice resulted in a marked increase of brain cystathionine at the end of 5 hr. The concentration of cystathionine in the experimental group (0.143 ± 0.022 μmole/g) was more than… (More)
