Abstract: Development of apoptosis is accompanied by a decrease in transcripts of NADP-isocitrate dehydrogenase (NADP-IDH, E.C. 188.8.131.52.), and also alterations of catalytic properties from the rat liver enzyme in comparison with control. Administration of thioctic acid is increased the level of expression towards normal values. Enzyme preparations NADP-IDH were obtained from rat liver at norm conditions, after introduction of tumor necrosis factor and thioctic acid action under apoptosis. Molecular weight of homogenous preparations of NADP-IDH purified from livers of control and experimental rats was 112±5,8 kDa, however Km values and pH-optimum changed in apoptosis. Regulation of NADP-IDH activity under effect of some intermediates of the tricarboxylic acid cycle also differed in these groups.
