Extraction and Quantification of GABA and Glutamate from Cyanobacterium Synechocystis sp. PCC 6803
Authors:  Simab Kanwal and Aran Incharoensakdi, date: 09/20/2016, view: 9260, Q&A: 0
GABA (γ-amino butyric acid) is a biologically active four carbon non-protein amino acid found in prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Glutamate is a five carbon α-amino acid which can be converted to GABA catalyzed by the enzyme glutamate decarboxylase. In ...
