GOT isoenzymes of red cells from normal subjects, and from subjects with reticulocytosis have been analysed by cellogel electrophoresis. Hemolysates from normal and from relatively old red cells contain only the anodic fraction (GOT I); whereas hemolysates from subjects with reticulocytosis and from relatively young red cells contain, in addition, the cathodic fraction (GOT II). Since this isoenzyme is derived from mitochondria, it implies that these organelles are still present in reticulocytes and in young red cells.
