It was found experimentally that the activity of the urea-cycle enzymes in the leucocytes of uraemic rats was parallel to that in their liver. Conclusions as to the activity of the urea-cycle enzymes in the liver can thus be drawn from the urea-cycle enzyme activity in the leucocytes. Investigation of the urea-cycle enzyme in the leucocytes of patients with renal insufficiency, in the pre-dialytic and dialytic states, showed that in both groups the ornithine carbamoyl transferase and the… CONTINUE READING
