Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A method is described for determining the activity of deoxycytidylate deaminase in serum. The ammonia liberated from deoxycytidine monophosphate has been specifically determined by enzymatic amination of alpha-ketoglutarate using glutamate dehydrogenase. The concurrent oxidation of NADH2 at 340 nm was proportional to the ammonia liberated from deoxycytidine monophosphate. Using the technique described, a result would be available to the clinician in under 4.5 h. The "normal activity" for deoxycytidine deaminase in normal male, female and pregnancy sera has been determined.
