Isocitrate Lyase, Achlya flagellata, Achlya lsocitrate Lyase
The colorimetric procedure of McFadden and Howes (1960) and the enzyme assay for isocitrate lyase (Shiio, Shiio, and McFadden, 1965) gave positive results for the presence of isocitrate lyase in Achlya flagellata oogonial cultures. This enzyme is an indicator of the glyoxylate pathway (metabolism of lipids to carbohydrates). Further work is in progress to determine if there is a correlation between isocitrate lyase and the microbodies of oogonial initials.
