Abstract

The activity of branched-chain 2-oxo acid dehydrogenase kinase was 3-fold greater in extracts of heart mitochondria than in extracts of liver mitochondria from rats fed on normal diet. Feeding rats on a 0%-casein diet for 10 days increased the activity of branched-chain kinase 4-fold in extracts of liver mitochondria and in branched-chain dehydrogenase complex purified from such extracts; starvation (48 h) was without effect. In extract of heart mitochondria, kinase activity was increased 2-fold by feeding on 0%-casein diet and 1.5-fold by 48 h of starvation.
