Effect of Squaric Acid and Isoascorbate on Glyoxalase-I Cell Division and DNA Synthesis in Datura Callus
Part of the
Basic Life Sciences
book series (BLSC, volume 22)
The presence of the enzyme glyoxalase was reported by Neuberg (1) and Dakin and Dudley in 1913 (2). Since then, it has been isolated from many animal systems and from yeast. However, except for one casual report, its existence has not been reported in higher plants.
