Acetylcholine synthesis and carbohydrate metabolism by R. P Harpur( )

1 edition published in 1949 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although the action of acetylcholine (ACh) had been known to physiologists for many years, it was not until 1929 that Dale and Dudley(27) Isolated ACh from animal tissues for the first time. In 1936 Quastel, Tennenbaumand Wheatley(87) demonstrated the presence in brain cortex slices of an enzyme system which synthesizes ACh, and showed that the synthesis is closely associated with the aerobiobreakdown of glucose. It was found also that glucose can be replaced to some extent by lactate or pyruvate, but still only under aerobic condition. [...]" --

Studies in soil metabolism by Peter Gordon Scholefield( )

1 edition published in 1949 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Soil contains many and varied microorganisms which are able to cope with and actively metabolize the materials, both organic and in some cases inorganic, that are presented to it under natural conditions. This must be expected for otherwise there would gradually accumulate those substances which could not be so transformed. Hence soil has proved to be of great use to the microbiologist and the bacteriologist in their search for new and specific microorganisms. However successful these studies have been their end has almost invariably been the isolation of a pure culture of such microorganisms and an investigation of their properties in this form. A rather different picture presents itself in soil as found in the field as under this condition the biological transformations are proceeding either simultaneously or successively and cannot be adequately paralleled by experiments on individual pure cultures.[...]" --
A study of animal and plant transaminases by Ralph Witty( )

1 edition published in 1951 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1927 Dorothy Needham (l), observed that when glutamic acid was added to minced pigeon breast muscle it disappeared without a parallel formation of ammonia, or a decrease in the total amino group concentration. She assumed,that the amino group of glutamic acid was transferred to some reactive carbohydrate residue to form a new amino acid. A similar phenomenon was observed by Banga and Szent- Gyorgyi (8), who noted that the rate of oxalacetic acid disappearance from pigeon breast muscle preparations was increased by glutamic acid. However, they did not recognize this as a transamination reaction. The correctness of Needham⁰́₉s assumption was demonstrated by Braunstein and Kritzmann (2), when they described the reversible reaction in muscle between glutamic acid and pyruvic acid which proceeds as follows: 1 (+) glutamic + pyruvic [symbol] [alpha]ketoglutaric + 1 (+) alanine. The enzyme catalysing the reaction they termed aminopherase. They proved its reversibility by isolating and chemically identifying the alanine and glutamic acid formed. The equilibrium was reached in 20 to 25 minutes under their conditions. In a later study (3) they found the enzyme was not limited to skeletal muscle but was present, also, in heart muscle, brain, liver and kidney [...]" --

Studies on Enzymatic Adaptation in Micro-Organisms. by Donn Kushner( )

1 edition published in 1952 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the past ten years, the importance of the phenomenon of enzymtic adaptation has beoome more and more apparent. Besides being in itself of considerable interest, it possesses implications for general cellular physiology extending outside of the area in which adaptation was originally studied, that of variations in micro-organisms. Thus, advances in our understanding of genetic mechanisms have already been made through studies of enzymatic adaptation. It has been predicted that further knowledge of enzymatic adaptation will throw light on some of the mechanisms of cellular differentiation in animal tissues. Arguments have been advanced to link adaptive enzyme formation with detoxication mechanisms and antibody formation in higher animals." --
Biochemical investigations of snake venoms in relation to their neurotoxic effects by Beatriz M Bragança( )

1 edition published in 1951 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Venoms are complex mixtures of pharmacologically very active components, many of which have been shown to be proteins having enzymic activities. They are powerful toxins to man and animals and as such have aroused the interest of investigators in various fields from early times. [...]" --
