Control of rat-liver glutaminase by ammonia and pH

European Journal of Biochemistry
A J VerhoevenA J Meijer


Regulation by ammonia of phosphate-dependent glutaminase in isolated rat-liver mitochondria was studied at pH values near the cytosolic pH of 7.0. 1. Glutaminase activity, both in the absence and presence of bicarbonate, was completely dependent on the presence of ammonia. 2. Glutaminase activity, both in the absence and presence of bicarbonate, was strongly depressed by decreasing the pH of the incubation medium from 7.0 to 6.8 when the ammonia concentration was below 0.5 mM. 3. Bicarbonate stimulated glutaminase activity only in the presence of low concentrations of ammonia. 4. The data indicate that the reported inhibition of glutamine degradation in the perfused liver at low pH [e.g. Häussinger et al. (1980) Hoppe-Seyler's Z. Physiol. Chem. 361, 995-1001] is due to a decreased affinity of glutaminase for ammonia.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathy

Hereditary Sensory Autonomic Neuropathies are a group of inherited neurodegenerative disorders characterized clinically by loss of sensation and autonomic dysfunction. Here is the latest research on these neuropathies.

Separation Anxiety

Separation anxiety is a type of anxiety disorder that involves excessive distress and anxiety with separation. This may include separation from places or people to which they have a strong emotional connection with. It often affects children more than adults. Here is the latest research on separation anxiety.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule.
