Biochemical localization of gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase within cellular elements of the rat cerebral cortex

Research Communications in Chemical Pathology and Pharmacology

Abstract

The presence of the enzyme gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase was established in cellular elements of the rat cerebral cortex. Lowest enzyme activity was found in the total cerebral homogenate while approximately four-fold increased enzymatic activities were evident in capillary-enriched, glial-enriched and purified neuronal fractions.

Astrocytes

Astrocytes are glial cells that support the blood-brain barrier, facilitate neurotransmission, provide nutrients to neurons, and help repair damaged nervous tissues. Here is the latest research.
