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.

To release bound folate, alpha-amylase, protease and conjugase were added to the extracts.
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 4.5, which favors their conversion to assayable folate.
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 3.4.19.9), to the monoglutamate form, which is the appropriate form for assay.
