GGH

A gene on chromosome 8q12.3 that encodes gamma-glutamyl hydrolase, which progressively removes gamma-glutamyl residues from pteroyl poly-gamma-glutamate to yield pteroyl-alpha-glutamate (folic acid) and free glutamate. GGH may play a key role in ensuring the bioavailability of dietary pteroylpolyglutamates and in the metabolism of pteroylpolyglutamates and antifolates.

Samples were removed every three hours, heat-treated and treated with conjugase before the microbiological assay was performed.
En los objetivos se intento, desde la transversalidad, elaborar un programa que conjugase lo que hasta ahora se ha tenido como los pilares basicos de la educacion compensatoria, es decir, lectoescritura y calculo, junto con una integracion en el sentido mas amplio, pues partiendo del conocimiento de la propia identidad cultural se pretendia fomentar la autoestima y el enriquecimiento de todos los alumnos y alumnas del colegio, mediante el conocimiento y reconocimiento de otras culturas.
Durkheim queria construir una nueva conciencia colectiva de acuerdo con las necesidades de las sociedades industriales, una nueva religion secular que sacralizase los principios del liberalismo y los conjugase con los valores del socialismo en el marco de la moderna sociedad industrial (1) (Lukes, 1984: 338).
Samples were removed every 3 hr, heat-treated and treated with conjugase before the microbiological assay was performed.
It is assumed that this procedure achieves two goals: the complete lysis of erythrocytes and the exposure of intracellular folate polyglutamates to plasma conjugase enzyme ([gamma]-glutamyl hydrolase) at a pH near 4.
2, which favor plasma conjugase activity, and a large cohort of cells remained intact.
All lysates (including those that may have undergone preliminary freezing-thawing) were incubated for 2 h at 37 [degrees]C so that any released red cell folyl-polyglutamates could undergo deconjugation, with naturally occurring plasma folate conjugase (y-Glu-X carboxypeptidase; EC 3.
The high pH of the extraction buffer inhibited endogenous folate conjugase activity, and the sodium ascorbate prevented oxidative degradation of the folates.
The extract (50 [micro]L) was incubated for 2 h at 37[degrees]C with chick pancreas conjugase (10 [micro]L), prepared as described by Mims and Laskowski (15), to convert the folates to their monoglutamyl forms.
Preliminary studies with standard reduced polyglutamyl and monoglutamyl folate, using HPLC for folate analysis, indicate that there is a loss of folate activity during the incubation with conjugase (data not shown).
n]) with plasma folate conjugase ([gamma]-glu-x carboxypeptidase; EC 3.
That total lysis of all red blood cells will liberate erythrocyte folate completely to unfettered access by plasma folate conjugase and consequently ensure complete RCF deconjugation to the monoglutamate form before analysis by either MA or RFBP assay;
