Anatomical context of SORD


Associations of SORD with chemical compounds

  • They also had high activities of aspartate transaminase and cholinesterase in the plasma and a low activity of sorbitol dehydrogenase [7].
  • In snakes the Km for sorbitol was low with moderate activity of sorbitol dehydrogenase, suggesting that the enzyme could reach maximum activity with lower sorbitol concentration in comparison to other vertebrates [6].
  • The enzymes studied were alkaline phosphatase (AP), aspartate transaminase (AST), L-gamma-glutamyl-transferase (gamma-GT), isocitrate dehydrogenase (ICDH), leucine arylamidase (LAP), malate dehydrogenase (MDH) and sorbitol dehydrogenase (SDH) [8].
