Glutamate dehydrogenase activity in subcellular fractions of mouse fibrosarcoma

  • Marian Hillar
  • Billy Lennox


Glutamate dehydrogenase activity was found to be present at a high level in neoplastic cytosol and microsomes, 3.45 and 9.90 nmoles NADH/min mg protein, respectively. This remains in accordance with the high rate of RNA and protein synthesis in the neoplastic process.
