Incubation of synaptosomes with [3H]acetate results in rapid labeling of protein. Labeling is decreased in the presence of veratridine, and the effect of veratridine is blocked by tetrodotoxin. Most of the radioactivity can be removed by base or acid hydrolysis, and is probably incorporated as acetate; it is this fraction that is affected by the veratridine. The data suggest that veratridine stimulates deacetylation of synaptosomal protein. This raises the question whether acetylation-deacetylation is involved in membrane function

The concept of metabolic compartmentation describes the presence in a tissue of functionally different and chemically distinct pools of a given substrate. These separate pools equilibrate only very slowlyt if at a11, and exhibit different turnover and flux rates. Such heterogeneous functional pools of amino acids were coming under investigation in microorganisms (Britten et al. 1955; Cowie, Walton 1956; Cowie, McClure 1959), plants (Steward et al. 1956; Maclennan et al. 1963), and animal tissues (Korner, Tarver 1957; Green, Lowther 1959; Kipnis et al. 1961) at about the same time that we began our studies on glutamate-glutamine metabolism in brain.

Glucose is the major source of energy in all brain cells and its metabolism is closely coupled to functional activity. Advantage has been taken of this by Sokoloff (1977) and Sokoloff et al. (1977) to study energy metabolism in different brain areas and their response to a variety of drugs and stimuli. For this purpose these workers have developed the procedure for mrasuring autoradiographically the accumulation of [14C]-deoxyglucose into its phosphate derivative, a compound which does not differentiate glial from neuronal metabolism. They could be enhanced if one could differentiate glial from neuronal metabolic response to the various experimental ...
