Cytochemical localization of a D-amino acid oxidizing enzyme in peroxisomes of Drosophila melanogaster.

PMID:  2575804     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A peroxide generating oxidase is demonstrated cytochemically in the peroxisomes of adult and larval Drosophila melanogaster, Oregon R and Rosy-506 strains. This enzyme activity is demonstrable using D-pipecolate or D-proline, but not L-proline, as substrate and is inhibited by kojic acid. Thus this enzyme shares cytochemical characteristics with vertebrate D-amino acid oxidase.
