Isocitrate dehydrogenase activity and its regulation by estradiol in tissues of rats of various ages

Cell Biochemistry and Function
R N Yadav


The activity and hormonal regulation of NAD- and NADP-linked isocitrate dehydrogenase (EC. and EC., respectively) in the brain, liver and kidney cortex of female rats of various ages was investigated. The activity of NAD-ICDH of brain was greater than extramitochondrial (-c) or intramitochondrial (-m) NADP-ICDH. In contrast, liver c-NADP-ICDH was much higher than NAD- or m-NADP-ICDH, whereas in kidney cortex the activity of m-NADP-ICDH is dominant over both NAD- and c-NADP-ICDH in all the age group of rats studied. The activity of the NAD-ICDH of brain and all the enzymes of liver and kidney cortex increases until adulthood (33-weeks) and decreases thereafter in old rats (85-weeks). In brain c-NADP-ICDH was much higher in immature (6-weeks) rats and decreases with increasing age of the animal, whereas m-NADP-ICDH showed no significant change with the age of the rats. Bilateral ovariectomy decreases the level of all the three forms of enzyme in all the tissues of 6-, 13- and 33-week rats but failed to show any significant effect in 85-week old rats. Exogenous administration of estradiol induces all the three forms of enzyme in all the tissues of ovariectomized rats. The degree of response is tissue- and age-speci...Continue Reading

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.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection

Lipidomics can be used to examine the lipid species involved with pathogenic conditions, such as viral associated inflammation. Discovered the latest research on Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection.

Spatio-Temporal Regulation of DNA Repair

DNA repair is a complex process regulated by several different classes of enzymes, including ligases, endonucleases, and polymerases. This feed focuses on the spatial and temporal regulation that accompanies DNA damage signaling and repair enzymes and processes.

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Torsion Dystonia

Torsion dystonia is a movement disorder characterized by loss of control of voluntary movements appearing as sustained muscle contractions and/or abnormal postures. Here is the latest research.

Archaeal RNA Polymerase

Archaeal RNA polymerases are most similar to eukaryotic RNA polymerase II but require the support of only two archaeal general transcription factors, TBP (TATA-box binding protein) and TFB (archaeal homologue of the eukaryotic general transcription factor TFIIB) to initiate basal transcription. Here is the latest research on archaeal RNA polymerases.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Central Pontine Myelinolysis

Central Pontine Myelinolysis is a neurologic disorder caused most frequently by rapid correction of hyponatremia and is characterized by demyelination that affects the central portion of the base of the pons. Here is the latest research on this disease.
