An interesting interaction between glyoxylate and cystein takes place in phosphate buffer (pH 7.0) to form a product which is resistant to hydrolysis at ordinary temperatures. The reaction product is broken up by acid hydrolysis at elevated temperatures under controlled conditions, giving a quantitive yield of glyoxylate. Other keto acids, such as α-ketoglutarate, pyruvate and oxaloacetate, do not interact with cysteine under similar conditions. Methods based on these findings are described for(a) direct estimation of other keto acids in the presence of glyoxylate, and (b) assay of isocitritase and glyoxylate transaminase.
