Spectrophotometric Determination of Glutamine Synthetase Activity in Cultured Cells
Authors:  I-Chen Peng, Alex J. Bott and Wei-Xing Zong, date: 10/05/2016, view: 12348, Q&A: 0
Glutamine synthetase (GS), which catalyzes the conversion of glutamate and ammonia to glutamine, is widely distributed in animal tissues and cell culture lines. The importance of this enzyme is suggested by the fact that glutamine, the product of ...
