The gels were stained for eight enzymes including aspartate aminotransferase (Weeden, 1984), aconitase (Cardy and Beversdorf, 1984), leucine aminopeptidase (Wendel and Weeden, 1989), malate dehydrogenase, phosphogluconate dehydrogenase, phosphoglucoisomerase, shikimate dehydrogenase, and triose phosphate isomerase.
It is suggested NAD+ to some degree regulates formation of aberrant proteins and generation of oxygen free-radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS), because when NAD+ is limiting, glycolytic triose phosphates spontaneously decompose into methylglyoxal (MG), a highly deleterious glycating agent and ROS inducer.
Despite deproteinization of the erythrocytes, we found large intraassay variations for the triose phosphates and hexose phosphates, which were ascribed to enzymatic conversion.
