Abstract The use of L-glutamate dehydrogenase (GLUD) as a reagent in staining mixtures to detect the isozymes of enzymes which catalyze the production of ammonia has been investigated. Methods have been devised for the electrophoresis and detection, using GLUD, of seven enzymes: cytidine deaminase, adenosine deaminase, adenosine monophosphate deaminase, arginase, argininosuccinase, D-amino acid oxidase, and D-aspartate oxidase. GLUD-linked staining methods appear to be sensitive, specific, and of general application.
