Urea metabolism in isolated perfused lungs of the laboratory rat and of a desert rodent, Notomys alexis.

Abstract

1. Using the isolated perfused lung preparation we have demonstrated a low-activity ureolytic enzyme present in rodent lung tissue. The enzyme shares four characteristic features with jack bean urease (EC 3.5.1.5). 2. Ureolytic activity was inhibited by fluoride ions and methionine hydroxamic acid; using the latter inhibitor, the I50 value and maximum… (More)
