We have identified succinic semialdehyde dehydrogenase protein in rat and human neural and nonneural tissues. Tissue localization was determined by enzymatic assay and by western immunoblotting using polyclonal antibodies raised in rabbit against the purified rat brain protein. Although brain shows the highest level of succinic semialdehyde dehydrogenase activity, substantial amounts of enzyme activity occur in mammalian liver, pituitary, heart, and ovary. We further demonstrate the absence of succinic semialdehyde dehydrogenase enzyme activity and protein in brain, liver, and kidney tissue samples from an individual affected with succinic semialdehyde dehydrogenase deficiency, thereby verifying the specificity of our antibodies.
