Abstract

Acid and alkaline ribonuclease (RNase) activities were measured in serum and urine using procedure based on assumption that all determined RNase activities, both at pH 6.5 and 7.8 represent values produced by overlapping of activities of acid leukocyte type RNase and alkaline pancreatic type RNase. The procedure requires simultaneous determining of RNase activity at pH 6.5 and 7.8 and further calculation of actual activities of acid and alkaline RNase activities using the elaborated experimental formula. Results of determining acid and alkaline RNases in human sera yielded on information on specific contribution of leukocyte type and pancreatic type RNases to increased RNase activity in such clinical conditions as terminal renal failure, myocardial infarction and chronic myelogenous leukemia. It was also found that there is in human urine a remarkably increased proportion of acid RNase activity if compared to this in serum.
