The aldolase specific activity of the human carcinoma cell line, HeLa, against fructose 1,6-diphosphate as substrate is 4- to 5-fold greater than the specific activity of diploid human fibroblast cultures derived from skin and lung. HeLa aldolase isozyme is predominantly the A type and its substrate preferences resemble human placenta. These findings provide further support for the oncofetal enzyme constitution of HeLa cells.
