Abstract/Summary

Starch gel electrophoresis was used to analyze the number and activity of the dehydrogenases acting on pyruvate in various tissues of 14 species of marine molluscs (6 bivalves, 6 gastropods and 2 cephalopods). Four distinct enzymes, lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), octopine dehydrogenase (ODH), alanopine dehydrogenase (ADH: pyruvate + alanine+ NADH = alanopine + NAD+) and strombine dehydro­genase (SDH: pyruvate + glycine + NADH = strombine + NAD+) were identified. All four enzymes were present in Mytilus edulis while various numbers and combinations were present in the other molluscs.
