The glutamate dehydrogenase activity found in the serum of patients with Reye's syndrome is shown to be inhibited about 1000-fold more potently by GTP than is the normal human enzyme. 1 mM ADP, which with the normal enzyme effectively reverse GTP inhibition, has no effect in the GTP inhibition of the Reye's syndrome serum activity.
