    • Abstract


      The analytic potential of arginase has been studied in the liver and kidney of frogRana hexadactyla during prolonged starvation. Starvation involves the alterations of Michaelis-Menten constant and the maximal velocity of arginase in both the tissues. Increased activation energy values for the enzymes of both the tissues during starvation indicated decreased catalytic potential.
