Determination of phosphate-activated glutaminase activity and its kinetics in mouse tissues using metabolic mapping (quantitative enzyme histochemistry).
Bottom Line: PAG activity was decreased to 22% in the presence of 2 mM 6-diazo-5-oxo-L-norleucine.When compared with liver, kidney and brain, other tissues showed 3-fold to 6-fold less PAG activity.In conclusion, PAG is mainly active in mouse kidney, brain and liver, and shows different kinetics depending on which type of PAG is expressed.

Mentions: Various mouse tissues were metabolically mapped for PAG activity. PAG was mainly active in the liver, kidney and brain (Fig. 11). PAG was twice more active in the kidney and cerebrum than in the liver. Other tissues showed low PAG activity (at least 3-fold less active as compared with liver tissue, and at least 6-fold less as compared with kidney and cerebrum).
