Determination of Transaminase Activity of Serum Protein Fractions separated by Paper Electrophoresis


THE electrophoretic mobility of glutamic–oxalacetic acid transaminase in blood serum has been found to be between those for α2- and β-globulins1. In our experiments2 the glutamic–oxalacetic acid transaminase was associated mainly with α2-globulins. This communication deals with this transaminase and glutamic-pyruvic acid transaminase and their relations to serum protein fractions.
