Detection of Xanthine Dehydrogenase Activity in Soluble Proteins of Rat Liver separated by Paper Electrophoresis


IT has been shown by paper electrophoresis that xanthine dehydrogenase activity is bound to the globulin fractions of rat serum1. Using differential centrifugation, it was demonstrated that xanthine oxidase and xanthine dehydrogenase activities are present in the supernatant fluid corresponding to the ‘cell sap’ containing the soluble proteins of the rat liver2.
