INCORPORATION OF [14C]GLYCINE INTO PROTEIN OF THE ADULT RAT PERIPHERAL NERVE: EFFECTS OF INHIBITORS

Authors


Abstract

—(1) The rate of incorporation in vitro of [14C]glycine into adult rat peripheral nerve protein was studied and found to be linear up to a concentration of 4.5 μc/ml. It was also linear with time of incubation up to at least 6 hr.

(2) Anaerobiosis, potassium cyanide, dinitrophenol and diphtheria toxin inhibited the incorporation of [14C]glycine into protein, in a manner comparable to other tissues.
