The pH optima, linearity of reactions, apparent energies of activation, and apparent K m values for NADPH, NH 4 >+ and α-ketoglutarate were determined. Based on these data, an accurate, sensitive enzyme assay procedure is presented which was successfully tested on shipboard during a recent cruise in an upwelling region. Preliminary studies on inhibition and activation of the NADP-linked GDH activity have also been carried out. In addition to NADP-linked GDH activity, NAD-linked GDH activity was discovered in certain species of phytoplankton. The possible physiological roles of NAD-and NADP-linked GDH enzymes are discussed.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/50897||ISSN:||0025-3162||DOI:||10.1007/BF00395598||Source:||Marine Biology [ISSN 0025-3162], v. 39, p. 93-101|
