Specific activity of glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase, estimated in direct and reverse reactions, was decreased, as compared with normal state, without any alterations in the ratio of activities, in muscle homogenates of rabbits with Brown-Pearce carcinoma. The enzymatic activity was decreased by an order of magnitude in homogenates of the tumor as compared with muscle homogenates of the tumor-bearing animals simultaneously with relative stimulation of the reverse reaction. Specific activity of the crystalline enzyme from muscles of tumor-bearing animals was decreased as compared with normal tissues but the ratio of activities was 2-fold increased due to the reverse reaction. In the carcinoma activity of one of the three enzyme fractions, obtained after isoelectrofocusing, was similar to the control values; in the second fraction the ratio of activities was decreased due to inhibition of the direct reaction, the third fraction was inactive. Amino acid composition of crystalline glycerol-3-phosphate dehydrogenase, isolated from tumor-bearing animals, was different in content of 5 amino acids from the enzyme amino acid composition of controls, thus suggesting the structural differences of the proteins from these fractions.
