Ammonia production by the small intestine of the rat

Norma McFarlane Anderson, Franklin I. Bennett, George A O Alleyne

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

1. 1. Slices of duodenum and jejunum produce ammonia from glutamine in vitro. 2. 2. Ammoniagenesis does not increase in response to acidosis or potassium deficiency, two conditions known to cause enhanced ammoniagenesis in the kidney. 3. 3. Gut contains glutaminase 1 as well as γ-glutamyl transpeptidase. 4. 4. These enzymes do not show any increase during starvation.
