It binds to poorly differentiated cells and terminally differentiated cells and is used in cell separation techniques.Asialoglycoproteins: Endogenous glycoproteins from which SIALIC ACID has been removed by the action of sialidases. They bind tightly to the ASIALOGLYCOPROTEIN RECEPTOR which is located on hepatocyte plasma membranes. After internalization by adsorptive ENDOCYTOSIS they are delivered to LYSOSOMES for degradation. Therefore receptor-mediated clearance of asialoglycoproteins is an important aspect of the turnover of plasma glycoproteins. They are elevated in serum of patients with HEPATIC CIRRHOSIS or HEPATITIS.Sulfates: Inorganic salts of sulfuric acid.Galectin 3: A multifunctional galactin initially discovered as a macrophage antigen that binds to IMMUNOGLOBULIN E, and as 29-35-kDa lectin that binds LAMININ. It is involved in a variety of biological events including interactions with galactose-containing glycoconjugates, cell proliferation, CELL DIFFERENTIATION, and APOPTOSIS.Trypsin: A serine endopeptidase that is formed from TRYPSINOGEN in the pancreas. It is converted into its active form by ENTEROPEPTIDASE in the small intestine. It catalyzes hydrolysis of the carboxyl group of either arginine or lysine. EC A molecule that binds to another molecule, used especially to refer to a small molecule that binds specifically to a larger molecule, e.g., an antigen binding to an antibody, a hormone or neurotransmitter binding to a receptor, or a substrate or allosteric effector binding to an enzyme. Ligands are also molecules that donate or accept a pair of electrons to form a coordinate covalent bond with the central metal atom of a coordination complex. (From Dorland, 27th ed)ABO Blood-Group System: The major human blood type system which depends on the presence or absence of two antigens A and B. Type O occurs when neither A nor B is present and AB when both are present. A and B are genetic factors that determine the presence of enzymes for the synthesis of certain glycoproteins mainly in the red cell membrane.Food, Formulated: Food and dietary formulations including elemental (chemically defined formula) diets, synthetic and semisynthetic diets, space diets, weight-reduction formulas, tube-feeding diets, complete liquid diets, and supplemental liquid and solid diets.Muscle, Skeletal: A subtype of striated muscle, attached by TENDONS to the SKELETON. Skeletal muscles are innervated and their movement can be consciously controlled. They are also called voluntary muscles.Swainsonine: An indolizidine alkaloid from the plant Swainsona canescens that is a potent alpha-mannosidase inhibitor. Swainsonine also exhibits antimetastatic, antiproliferative, and immunomodulatory activity.alpha-Glucosidases: Enzymes that catalyze the exohydrolysis of 1,4-alpha-glucosidic linkages with release of alpha-glucose. Deficiency of alpha-1,4-glucosidase may cause GLYCOGEN STORAGE DISEASE TYPE II.Structure-Activity Relationship: The relationship between the chemical structure of a compound and its biological or pharmacological activity. Compounds are often classed together because they have structural characteristics in common including shape, size, stereochemical arrangement, and distribution of functional groups.Plants, Medicinal: Plants whose roots, leaves, seeds, bark, or other constituent parts possess therapeutic, tonic, purgative, curative or other pharmacologic attributes, when administered to man or animals.Galactans: Polysaccharides composed of repeating galactose units. They can consist of branched or unbranched chains in any linkages.Starvation: Lengthy and continuous deprivation of food. (Stedman, 25th ed)

Chemical Composition of Carbohydrate:. A carbohydrate is any member of a widespread class of natural organic substances that includes sugars, starch and cellulose. The chemical composition of carbohydrates – as analysed in the nineteenth century – is a combination of carbon C, hydrogen H and water H 2 O. Many carbs have the general chemical formula Cx H 2 O x, but the class is too large to fit into a simple chemical formula. Carbohydrates are often isomers – meaning, they have the same atomic composition but different structures. Fructose, galactose and glucose are isomers with the chemical formula C 6 H 12 O 6. There are many classification schemes for carbohydrates. The most common one separates them into 4 major groups: monosaccharides, disaccharides, oligosaccharides and polysaccharides. Types of ...

Burke, Ph.D. We are all aware of the need for carbohydrates for aerobic performance. Now it appears not only do carbohydrates aid endurance performance, but also help the immune response to exercise. Triathletes ran or cycled for 2.5 hours at 75% of maximal aerobic capacity on two occasions. On one occasion they drank a carbohydrate drink and on another, a placebo containing no carbohydrate. When drinking the carbohydrate drink, the triathletes showed higher blood sugar and insulin levels, and lower blood cortisol and growth hormone levels. A lower cortisol level is an indicator of less stress. When drinking the carbohydrate drink they also showed lower white blood cell counts. The authors conclude that carbohydrate ingestion during activity lessens hormonal responses indicative of stress and raises the immune response.

*  Juice Fasting
In its wisdom, the organism recognizes the need to preserve its lean mass muscle and chooses to replace its source of fuel as quickly as possible with expendable, and abundantly available, fat tissue. In 30 - 36 hours following the last intake of food, that body will progressively undergo a transition into phase 4, the final state of adaptation in the fast. Phase 4 - The catabolism of fat lipidolysis provides the body with another alternative way of providing fuel. Due to the prolific availability of fat, even in slender individuals, supplying the body’s energy needs, this way can continued for an extended period of time. Provision by lipidolysis will continue until re-alimentation re-feeding or starvation is allowed to begin. Whereas carbohydrates and amino acids provide only 4 calories per gram, fat contains over double that - yielding 9 calories per gram. In a state of complete rest, the body requires an average of only 900 calories per day, which can be provided by 100 grams of fat. There have ...

It s important to have a list of carbohydrate foods before going on a low or high carbohydrate diet or simple or complex carbohydrate diet. There is a huge difference between the two. It s best to break down carbohydrate foods into two categories. Simple and complex carbohydrates and low and high carbohydrate foods. SIMPLE CARBOHYDRATES. As a rule, simple carbohydrates are easily broken down and quickly enter the bloodstream.

Polysaccharide means "many sugars." Polysaccharides, or complex carbohydrates, are several simple sugar molecules linked together. They can be as many as 10,000 simple sugar molecules linked together. Starch and fiber are complex carbohydrates because they are polysaccharides. Simple or Complex. For most people, it's better to choose more complex carbohydrate foods over simple carbohydrate foods. The first reason is that complex carbohydrates usually take longer to be broken down into glucose in your blood, meaning they provide prolonged energy and stabilize your blood sugar rather than spiking it up like simple carbohydrates do. A blood sugar spike, such as one resulting from eating food high in simple carbohydrates like candy, can be bad for your ...

Dietary carbohydrates and cardiovascular disease risk factors in the Framingham Offspring Cohort. Dietary GI was positively associated with fasting triglycerides, fasting insulin, and inversely associated with HDL cholesterol and ISI0,120. Intakes of total carbohydrate were inversely associated with waist circumference and HDL cholesterol, and positively associated with fasting triglycerides. These findings support the hypothesis that a high GI diet unfavorably affects CVD risk factors and therefore, substitution of high with low GI dietary carbohydrates may reduce the risk of CVD. We examined cross-sectional associations between total carbohydrate and dietary glycemic index GI intakes and several cardiovascular disease CVD risk factors in a sample of 2,941 Framingham Offspring Participants. After adjustment for potential confounding factors, dietary GI ...

The average cocks of today could defeat those cocks bred and fed in the 1920's. Why. For the same reasons human beings today are stronger, bigger and faster than their grandparents: breeding and feeding. Great strides have been made in genetics and nutrition in the past fifty, and particularly, the last twenty years. Consequently, average life expectancy, general health, and size have increased by leaps and bounds. In the animal world horses run faster, cows produce more milk and beef, hens lay more eggs, and so on. Cockers of today are more knowledgeable and generally better educated, with more available information, than ever before. But, while most cockers are great students of experience, as a rule, they do little to actually study genetics and nutrition with an eye ...

Examples of Simple and Complex Carbohydrates. Many health experts recommend cutting down or eliminating sugar and other simple carbohydrates, and increasing the servings of complex carbohydrates in the diet. Unfortunately, over-consumption of sugar, high-fructose corn syrup and other highly refined carbohydrates has been associated with a higher incidence of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and even breast cancer. And eating refined carbs can, over time, result in almost uncontrollable sugar cravings. With the popularity of low-carb diets, many people are afraid to eat any carbohydrates, but it is important to distinguish between the health-robbing effects of simple sugars and other carbs, and the health-giving properties of complex carbohydrates. Complex carbohydrates are high-fiber foods, which improve your digestion. Examples: simple and complex carbohydrates. Some examples of healthy foods containing complex carbohydrates:.

*  Insulin index
The index is similar to the Glycemic Index and Glycemic Load, but rather than relying on blood glucose levels, the Insulin Index is based upon blood insulin levels. Insulin index represents a comparison food portions with equal overall caloric content 250 kcal or 1000 kJ, while GI and GL represents a comparison of portions with equal digestible carbohydrate content typically 50 g. This measure can be more useful than either the Glycemic Index or the Glycemic Load because certain foods e.g., lean meats and proteins cause an insulin response despite there being no carbohydrate s present, and some foods cause a disproportionate insulin response relative to their carbohydrate load. 1 but high-protein foods and bakery products that are rich in fat and refined carbohydrates "elicit insulin responses that were disproportionately higher than their glycemic responses." They also conclude that insulin indices may be useful for dietary management and avoidance of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus and ...

To get fit and turn into healthy, dieting and exercise go hand in hand. Although some diets advise the lowering of fats and carbohydrates, others recommend only the reduction of fats. Even though some diet programs recommend lower carbohydrate intake, now you ask, raised whether it will have any effect on weight reduction and the unsafe effects of weight. When the carbohydrate intake is reduced, there's no question that many people might see some initial reduction in weight loss, however, this just isn't sustained in the long run. Using a low carbohydrate diet will gradually result in a boost in lethargy and definately will result in a gradual increase in weight following your initial weight reduction. Often the initial weight reduction is really just the reduction in fluids from the cells, or water weight. This loss in fluids is not always healthy.

Below are some foods that can help in weight management and the prevention dangerous spikes in blood glucose:. 1 Choose complex carbohydrates over simple carbohydrates - Keeping sugar levels stable is a top priority for diabetics. That is why complex carbohydrates are a better source of energy compared to simple carbohydrates that produce spikes in the bloodstream and cause serious problems. Instead, choose complex carbohydrates like whole wheat, brown rice, beans, oats, quinoa and whole wheat pasta as they are slowly digested and absorbed into the blood, thus producing a gradual and consistent sugar level instead of unpredictable spikes. whole wheat bran while soluble fiber can lower cholesterol.

We are now learning protein quality is just as important as quantity in determining the effects on thermogenesis, protein synthesis, and protein degradation. Here is what we know. Protein is the Most Thermogenic Thermogenesis, or more appropriately the thermic effect of feeding, refers to the generation of heat due to digestion and metabolism of food. Several studies show protein to be more thermogenic than carbohydrates and fat.

*  Carbohydrates: Fuel of Choice -
Food for Thought Carbohydrate-rich foods are the fuel of choice for athletes. For example: here's the carbo requirement for a 150-pound elite runner training several hours each day: 150 pounds 4.5 grams = 675 grams of carbohydrate Because 1 gram of carbohydrate = 4 calories, we can now convert 675 carb grams into carb calories by using the following equation: 675 4 = 2,700 carbohydrate calories Now, let's look at a typical 150-pound health club member, working out at a moderate intensity approximately 45 minutes, 4 5 days a week: 150 pounds 3.0 grams = 450 grams of carbohydrate Now, convert into carb calories: 450 4 = 1,800 carbohydrate calories As you can see, a more intense endurance exercise program will demand more carbohydrate. The Starchy Carbs Generally speaking, breads, grains, and other starchy foods contain approximately 15 grams give or take a few of carbohydrate per serving 1 slice bread, cup pasta, 1 serving of cereal. For instance, a pasta entree can easily total five grain servings, and ...

*  .. What to eat before a 5K race .. Related content .. Related posts .. Strength and cardio training
Traditional endurance wisdom encourages carbohydrate loading or “carbo-loading,” by eating large amounts of carbohydrates the day before and the day of your race. The logic behind this is that carbohydrates are the body’s primary fuel, especially during exercise, when they account for 40 to 50 percent of energy production. The problem with this theory becomes clear when you understand that the fuel used during exercise is stored in your muscles and liver. If you think of these stored carbohydrates as fuel in a car, then your muscles and liver can be compared to the gas tank. Like a car’s gas tank, there is a limit to how much fuel can be stored. Numerous studies have shown that not only does the carbo-loading myth offer no benefit to  runners – it could actually slow you down. Another common practice is to eat simple carbohydrates, like honey or sugar, shortly before the race for a quick boost of energy. This, however, can lead to dehydration: your cells need excess water to ...

Carbohydrate chemistry: Carbohydrate chemistry is a subdiscipline of chemistry primarily concerned with the synthesis, structure, and function of carbohydrates. Due to the general structure of carbohydrates, their synthesis is often preoccupied with the selective formation of glycosidic linkages and the selective reaction of hydroxyl groups; as a result, it relies heavily on the use of protecting groups.Carbohydrate loading: Carbohydrate loading, commonly referred to as carb-loading or carbo-loading, is a strategy used by endurance athletes, such as marathon runners, to maximize the storage of glycogen (or energy) in the muscles and liver.http://www.Eutherian fetoembryonic defense system (eu-FEDS) hypothesis: The Eutherian Fetoembryonic Defense System (eu-FEDS) is a hypothetical model describing a method by which immune systems are capable of recognizing additional states of relatedness like "own species" such as is observed in maternal immune tolerance in pregnancy. The model includes descriptions of the proposed signaling mechanism and several proposed examples of exploitation of this signaling in disease states.N-linked glycosylation: N-linked glycosylation, is the attachment of the sugar molecule oligosaccharide known as glycan to a nitrogen atom (amide nitrogen of asparagine (Asn) residue of a protein), in a process called N-glycosylation, studied in biochemistry. This type of linkage is important for both the structure and function of some eukaryotic proteins.Leguminous lectin family: In molecular biology, the leguminous lectin family is a family of lectin proteins.Starch gelatinization: Starch gelatinization is a process of breaking down the intermolecular bonds of starch molecules in the presence of water and heat, allowing the hydrogen bonding sites (the hydroxyl hydrogen and oxygen) to engage more water. This irreversibly dissolves the starch granule in water.Glycosylation: Glycosylation (see also chemical glycosylation) is the reaction in which a carbohydrate, i.e.MonosaccharideMannose 6-phosphateTumor-associated glycoprotein: Tumor-associated glycoproteins (TAGs) are glycoproteins found on the surface of many cancer cells.

However the actual food consumption may be lower than the quantity shown as food availability depending on the magnitude of wastage and losses of food in the household, e.GalactoseList of glycoside hydrolase families: Glycoside hydrolases (O-Glycosyl hydrolases) are a widespread group of enzymes that hydrolyse the glycosidic bond between two or more carbohydrates, or between a carbohydrate and a non-carbohydrate moiety. A classification system for glycosyl hydrolases, based on sequence similarity, has led to the definition of numerous different families.Blood glucose monitoring: Blood glucose monitoring is a way of testing the concentration of glucose in the blood (glycemia). Particularly important in the care of diabetes mellitus, a blood glucose test is performed by piercing the skin (typically, on the finger) to draw blood, then applying the blood to a chemically active disposable 'test-strip'.Jacalin: Jacalin is a plant based lectin, but not a legume lectin, found in jackfruit. It has been studied for capturing O-glycoproteins such as mucins and IgA1, for potential applications in human immunology.Sucrose gap: The sucrose gap technique is used to create a conduction block in nerve or muscle fibers. A high concentration of sucrose is applied to the extracellular space to increase resistance between two groups of cells, which prevents the correct opening and closing of sodium and potassium channels.Fructose malabsorptionProteinogenic amino acid: Proteinogenic amino acids are amino acids that are precursors to proteins, and are incorporated into proteins cotranslationally — that is, during translation. There are 23 proteinogenic amino acids in prokaryotes (including N-Formylmethionine, mainly used to initiate protein synthesis and often removed afterward), but only 21 are encoded by the nuclear genes of eukaryotes.Disaccharide: A disaccharide or bioseBiose on www.merriam-webster.FucoseGlucuronamideSialic acid: Sialic acid is a generic term for the N- or O-substituted derivatives of neuraminic acid, a monosaccharide with a nine-carbon backbone.Glycogen synthase: ; ; rendered using PyMOL.Mayo Clinic Diet: The Mayo Clinic Diet is a diet created by Mayo Clinic.

One 3/4 cup serving contains 3 grams of protein, 5 grams of dietary fiber and 90 calories, 5 of which come from fat.Index of energy articles: This is an index of energy articles.Sodium periodateProtein primary structure: The primary structure of a peptide or protein is the linear sequence of its amino acid structural units, and partly comprises its overall biomolecular structure. By convention, the primary structure of a protein is reported starting from the amino-terminal (N) end to the carboxyl-terminal (C) end.GlucosamineMolar mass distribution: In linear polymers the individual polymer chains rarely have exactly the same degree of polymerization and molar mass, and there is always a distribution around an average value. The molar mass distribution (or molecular weight distribution) in a polymer describes the relationship between the number of moles of each polymer species (Ni) and the molar mass (Mi) of that species.MelezitoseMargaret Jope: Margaret Jope (1913–2004) was a Scottish biochemist, born as Henrietta Margaret Halliday in Peterhead, Scotland.CD33: CD33 or Siglec-3 is a transmembrane receptor expressed on cells of myeloid lineage. It is usually considered myeloid-specific, but it can also be found on some lymphoid cells.MannosamineAllolactoseLiver sinusoid: A liver sinusoid is a type of sinusoidal blood vessel (with fenestrated, discontinuous endothelium) that serves as a location for the oxygen-rich blood from the hepatic artery and the nutrient-rich blood from the portal vein.SIU SOM Histology GISulfoquinovosyl diacylglycerol: Sulfoquinovosyl diacylglycerols, abbreviated SQDG, are a class of sulfur-containing but phosphorus-free lipids (sulfolipids) found in many photosynthetic organisms.Galectin: Galectins are a family of proteins defined by their binding specificity for β-galactoside sugars, such as N-acetyllactosamine (Galβ1-3GlcNAc or Galβ1-4GlcNAc), which can be bound to proteins by either N-linked or O-linked glycosylation. They are also termed S-type lectins due to their dependency on disulphide bonds for stability and carbohydrate binding.Spin–lattice relaxation in the rotating frame: Spin–lattice relaxation in the rotating frame is the mechanism by which Mxy, the transverse component of the magnetization vector, exponentially decays towards its equilibrium value of zero, under the influence of a radio frequency (RF) field in nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). It is characterized by the spin–lattice relaxation time constant in the rotating frame, T1ρ.Lipotoxicity: Lipotoxicity is a metabolic syndrome that results from the accumulation of lipid intermediates in non-adipose tissue, leading to cellular dysfunction and death.

(1/4726) Studies of the binding of different iron donors to human serum transferrin and isolation of iron-binding fragments from the N- and C-terminal regions of the protein.

1. Trypsin digestion of human serum transferrin partially saturated with iron(III)-nitrilotriacetate at pH 5.5 or pH 8.5 produces a carbohydrate-containing iron-binding fragment of mol.wt. 43000. 2. When iron(III) citrate, FeCl3, iron (III) ascorabate and (NH4)2SO4,FeSO4 are used as iron donors to saturate the protein partially, at pH8.5, proteolytic digestion yields a fragment of mol.wt. 36000 that lacks carbohydrate. 3. The two fragments differ in their antigenic structures, amino acid compositions and peptide 'maps'. 4. The fragment with mol.wt. 36000 was assigned to the N-terminal region of the protein and the other to the C-terminal region. 5. The distribution of iron in human serum transferrin partially saturated with various iron donors was examined by electrophoresis in urea/polyacrylamide gels and the two possible monoferric forms were unequivocally identified. 6. The site designated A on human serum transferrin [Harris (1977) Biochemistry 16, 560--564] was assigned to the C-terminal region of the protein and the B site to the N-terminal region. 7. The distribution of iron on transferrin in human plasma was determined.  (+info)

(2/4726) The structure of a glycopeptide (GP-II) isolated from Rhizopus saccharogenic amylase.

Mild alkaline treatment of glycopeptide (GP-II) resulted in the loss of 1 mole of serine and 5 moles of threonine per mole of GP-II, suggesting the presence of O-glycosyl bonds between 1 serine and 5 threonine residues and carbohydrate chains. Treatment of GP-II with alkaline borohydride released only disaccharide. Methylation studies of the carbohydrate moiety gave 2,3,4,6-tetra-O-methyl and 2,4,6-tri-O-methyl derivatives of mannose in a ratio of approximately 1:1. In addition, one step of Smith degradation resulted in the loss of about 6 residues of mannose per mole of GP-II. Moreover, alpha-mannosidase [EC] liberated about 6 residles of mannose per mole of GP-II. On the basis of these data, the structure of the carbohydrate moiety of GP-II was confirmed to be 3-O-alpha-mannosylmannose. The amino- and carboxyl-terminal amino acids of GP-II were determined to be threonine and serine, respectively. On reductive cleavage of N-proline bonds with metallic sodium in liquid ammonia, 2 moles of alanine per mole of GP-II were lost. From the compositions of three fragments isolated from the reductive cleavage products, the amino acid sequence of the peptide portion of GP-II was determined. Based on these data, a probable structure was proposed for GP-II.  (+info)

(3/4726) Isolation and characterization of two mouse L cell lines resistant to the toxic lectin ricin.

Two variant mouse L cell lines (termed CL 3 and CL 6) have been selected for resistant to ricin, a galactose-binding lectin with potent cytotoxic activity. The resistant lines exhibit a 50 to 70% decrease in ricin binding and a 300- to 500-fold increase in resistance to the toxic effects of ricin. Crude membrane preparations of CL 3 cells have increased sialic acid content (200% of control), while the galactose, mannose, and hexosamine content is within normal limits. Both the glycoproteins and glycolipids of CL 3 cells have increased sialic acid, with the GM3:lactosylceramide ratios for parent L and CL 3 cells being 0.29 and 1.5, respectively. In contrast, the membranes of CL 6 cells have a decrease in sialic acid, galactose, and hexosamine content with mannose being normal. Both cell lines have specific alterations in glycosyltransferase activities which can account for the observed membrane sugar changes. CL 3 cells have increased CMP-sialic acid:glycoprotein sialyltransferase and GM3 synthetase activities, while CL 6 cells have decrease UDP-GlcNAc:glycoproteinN-acetylglucosaminyltransferase and DPU-galactose:glycoprotein galactosyltransferase activities. The increased sialic acid content of CL 3 cells serves to mask ricin binding sites, since neuraminidase treatment of this cell line restores ricin binding to essentially normal levels. However, the fact that neuraminidase-treated CL 3 cells are still 45-fold resistant to ricin indicates that either a special class of productive ricin binding sites is not being exposed or that the cell line has a second mechanism for ricin resistance.  (+info)

(4/4726) A new sugar chain of the proteinase inhibitor from latex of Carica papaya.

The structure of a sugar chain of the proteinase inhibitor from the latex of Carica papaya was studied. Sugar chains liberated on hydrazinolysis were N-acetylated, and their reducing-end residues were tagged with 2-aminopyridine. One major sugar chain was detected on size-fractionation and reversed-phase HPLC analyses. The structure of the PA-sugar chain was determined by two-dimensional sugar mapping combined with sequential exoglycosidase digestion and partial acid hydrolysis, and by 750 MHz 1H-NMR spectroscopy. The structure found was Manalpha1-6(Manalpha1-3)Manalpha1-6(Manalpha1-3) (Xylbeta1-2)Manbeta1- 4GlcNAcbeta1-4(Fucalpha1-3)GlcNAc. This sugar chain represents a new plant-type sugar chain with five mannose residues.  (+info)

(5/4726) Prophenoloxidase-activating enzyme of the silkworm, Bombyx mori. Purification, characterization, and cDNA cloning.

Prophenoloxidase-activating enzyme (PPAE) was purified to homogeneity as judged by SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis from larval cuticles of the silkworm, Bombyx mori. The purified PPAE preparation was shown to be a mixture of the isozymes of PPAE (PPAE-I and PPAE-II), which were eluted at different retention times in reversed-phase high performance liquid chromatography. PPAE-I and PPAE-II seemed to be post translationally modified isozymes and/or allelic variants. Both PPAE isozymes were proteins composed of two polypeptides (heavy and light chains) that are linked by disulfide linkage(s) and glycosylated serine proteases. The results of cDNA cloning, peptide mapping, and amino acid sequencing of PPAE revealed that PPAE is synthesized as prepro-PPAE with 441 amino acid residues and is activated from pro-PPAE by cleavage of a peptide bond between Lys152 and Ile153. The homology search showed 36.9% identity of PPAE to easter, which is a serine protease involved in dorso-ventral pattern formation in the Drosophila embryo, and indicated the presence of two consecutive clip-like domains in the light chain. A single copy of the PPAE gene was suggested to be present in the silkworm genome. In the fifth instar larvae, PPAE transcripts were detected in the integument, hemocytes, and salivary glands but not in the fat body or mid gut. A polypeptide cross-reactive to mono-specific anti-PPAE/IgG was transiently detected in the extract of eggs between 1 and 3 h after they were laid.  (+info)

(6/4726) Paracellular glucose transport plays a minor role in the unanesthetized dog.

Traditionally, intestinal glucose absorption was thought to occur through active, carrier-mediated transport. However, proponents of paracellular transport have argued that previous experiments neglected effects of solvent drag coming from high local concentrations of glucose at the brush-border membrane. The purpose of this study was to evaluate glucose absorption in the awake dog under conditions that would maximize any contribution of paracellular transport. Jejunal Thiry-Vella loops were constructed in six female mongrel dogs. After surgical recovery, isotonic buffers containing L-glucose as the probe for paracellular permeability were given over 2-h periods by constant infusion pump. At physiological concentrations of D-glucose (1-50 mM), the fractional absorption of L-glucose was only 4-7% of total glucose absorption. Infusion of supraphysiological concentrations (150 mM) of D-glucose, D-maltose, or D-mannitol yielded low-fractional absorptions of L-glucose (2-5%), so too did complex or nonabsorbable carbohydrates. In all experiments, there was significant fractional water absorption (5-19%), a prerequisite for solvent drag. Therefore, with even up to high concentrations of luminal carbohydrates in the presence of significant water absorption, the relative contribution of paracellular glucose absorption remained low.  (+info)

(7/4726) Sugar- and nitrogen-dependent regulation of an Amanita muscaria phenylalanine ammonium lyase gene.

The cDNA of a key enzyme of secondary metabolism, phenylalanine ammonium lyase, was identified for an ectomycorrhizal fungus by differential screening of a mycorrhizal library. The gene was highly expressed in hyphae grown at low external monosaccharide concentrations, but its expression was 30-fold reduced at elevated concentrations. Gene repression was regulated by hexokinase.  (+info)

(8/4726) Lack of effect of carbohydrate depletion on some properties of human mast cell chymase.

Human chymase from vascular tissues was purified to homogeneity by heparin affinity and gel filtration chromatography. Treatment of human chymase with endoglycosidase F resulted in cleavage of the carbohydrate moiety yielding a deglycosylation product that did not lose its catalytic activity. This enzymatic deglycosylation product was enough to explore possibilities that N-glycan might modify some properties of human chymase. Substrate specificity, optimum pH and the elution profile from the heparin affinity gel were not affected by the deglycosylation. Only a slight but significant difference was observed in the Km value for conversion of angiotensin I to angiotensin II. Other kinetic constants such as kcat were not influenced. The kinetics of conversion of big endothelin-1 to endothelin-1(1-31) were not significantly affected. The deglycosylated human chymase was more susceptible to deactivation under alkaline pH and thermal stress. Even at physiological temperature and pH, the activity of glycosylated human chymase was more stable. From these results, it appears that the N-glycan of human chymase contributes to the stability of this enzyme but not to its functional properties.  (+info)

  • Most foods contain carbohydrates, which the body breaks down into simple sugars - the major source of energy for the body. (
  • What Foods Contain Carbohydrates? (


  • Carbohydrate - Mainly sugars and starches, together constituting one of the three principal types of nutrients used as energy sources (calories) by the body. (


  • There are two major types of carbohydrates (or carbs) in foods: simple and complex. (
  • Foods containing simple carbohydrates are often thought of as "bad carbs," but many foods that contain simple sugars are very healthy, such as apples, blackberries, grapefruit, lemons and many other fruits. (
  • Carbohydrates ("carbs") are found in food. (
  • Carbohydrates are essential to your body s ability to produce energy so the proper approach is to eat carbs early in the day so that you will burn them for fuel during the day and not store them as fat. (
  • Let s face it, most people are not able to eliminate carbs completely from their diet anyways because of all the desirable foods containing carbohydrates so this is the plan that will work best for most people. (
  • The best plan is to go ahead and eat carbohydrates (of course try to limit the sugar) but eat them early and make sure that you are active enough during the day to burn what you eat and the best way to ensure this is to perform some intense exercise making use of the carbs you eat to fuel better workouts which ultimately leads to greater weight loss. (
  • Also a lot of carbohydrates are processed, so you don't get the advantage of feeling full from fiber found in unprocessed carbs. (
  • WE need carbs - but it's about what kind of carbohydrate you are eating. (


  • When carbohydrate calories are plentiful, one's body never needs to use its fat reserves for energy. (


  • Sprouted, or Ezekiel Bread, is a great carbohydrate choice with lots of nutrients and protein. (
  • By trying to lose weight with a high carbohydrate, low protein, low fat diet, you'll constantly be fighting insulin spikes and resulting hunger. (
  • A high protein, low carbohydrate, moderate fat diet, based on three small meals with one or two high protein snacks spread throughout the day, is an attractive option to burn fat in a healthy, muscle-sparing way. (


  • Simple carbohydrates, such as pasta, breads, and most sweets get into the bloodstream too quickly, triggering a large release of insulin from the pancreas. (


  • As with simple sugars, some complex carbohydrate foods are better choices than others. (
  • The amount of sugar chains and the body's ability to digest and absorb the sugars determines the type of carbohydrate. (


  • Foods containing one or two sugar molecules that are quickly digested are simple carbohydrates, and foods containing three or more linked sugar molecules that take longer to digest are complex carbohydrates. (

  • Only once your carbohydrate intake is limited will your body reluctantly start to burn fat. (


  • That's why many people with diabetes count their carbohydrates to keep track of how much they're eating. (


  • Often it's the sugar and fat contained in carbohydrates that make you fat. (
  • Excess carbohydrates are then stored as glycogen (a kind of sugar inside the liver). (

  • Carbohydrates? Some diets like the Atkins diet severely limit the intake of carbohydrates, but allow food thats are high in fat and protein. What changes would such a diet cause in the metabolism of the dieter?
  • Carbs are your energy, so anything high in carbs gives you energy if you dont use that energy it turns into fat. so by limiting the carbs you are forcing your body to use up body fat for energy, so thats how you lose the weight by burning and running on your own body fat. While on this kinda diet you feel hungry but your not, it is just that you are not having much carbs that your body thinks you need, but you dont when you have so much body fat to run off of. But when you lose the weight, then start eating more carbs but still try to limit them otherwise you will be right back to where you started. Hope that helped. If you need more info donr hesitate to ask me.

How many carbohydrates should I consume if I want to lose weight?

  • I weigh193 and have been losing weight steadily over the past 6 months. I have lost a total of 40 pounds. I started eating a diet very low in carbohydrates (20-30). Should I continue eating this few?
  • Losing weight is a simple equation: if you burn more calories than you eat, the weight will come off. Start off by estimating how many calories you burn each day using the calorie calculator This will give you an idea of how many calories to eat. Healthy weight loss is 1-2 pounds per week. To lose 1 pound per week you need to create a calorie deficit (burn more than you eat) of 500 calories per day. To lose 2 pounds a week, you have to double the deficit to 1000 calories per day. You can achieve this by eating less, exercising more or a combination of both. Guide to Dieting - Health, Exercise and Diets -

What are good vegetarian sources of carbohydrates and proteins for infants?

  • My son is now almost 11 months old and prefers eating dairy products and fruits. I'm trying to introduce him to rice and potatoes. He doesn't seem to like rice pasta or potatoes in any form.Does anyone know alternate carbohydrate and protein sources. Plus any secret recipes that have worked well to make your young ones eat those carbohydrates up? Many thanks.
  • I like the Morningstar Farms/Boca "chicken" nuggets. They're so much healthier than real chicken, and young kids love them. They're really soft and easy to chew, so a young toddler will be able to eat them without a problem. And sooo easy and quick to prepare. Also raw or cooked soybeans-They taste kind of sweet, so kids will be more likely to eat them than some other veggies. Mashed potatoes are good-If your son won't eat them, you could try adding a crop of food coloring to make them more "fun." That always worked for my son. Cut up cheese is good as well. Once he turns 12 months, you'll be able to give him whole milk, which is a great source of protein.

How does burning carbohydrates while exercising work?

  • I'm curious as to how carbohydrates are used while exercising (I know during high intensity workouts) but as far as how fast do you burn them up when exercising. The harder you do cardio, the more calories you burn right, I assume carbs are the same, but are they used up at the same rate? I'm 18 and I am trying to perfect my diet as much as possible.

What are complex carbohydrates and is sweet potato one of them and are they good for me?

  • Waht are these complex carbohydrates and if they are good for me,how are the good for me and what can i find them in.

What's the difference between complex carbohydrates and simple sugars?

  • Aren't they basically the same and make you gain weight? Why do some people think complex carbohydrates or starches are good for you while simple sugars or simple carbohydrates are not?
  • Both have the same amount of calories (4 per gram of carbohydrate) but their nutritional value is very different. Complex carbohydrates are what you find in whole grains (brown rice, whole wheat, quinoa, etc), beans/legumes, vegetables. Complex carbohydrates are better for you, and are an essential part of your diet, because foods with complex carbs have high amounts of fiber in them, which improves digestion. Foods that are more digestible have their nutrients better absorbed into the body and give you better energy. Foods with complex carbohydrates also have more protein. Simple carbohydrates include fruit, which should be a part of your diet as well. Foods with lots of added sugar, like cake, candy, soda and honey, have little nutritional value and are likely to make you gain weight. Don't be afraid of carbohydrates, your body needs them to function properly.

Does simple carbohydrates still work to fuel the body?

Ive been trying to read online and all they say about simple carbohydrates is that its bad for u and etc. I don't care about the calories or getting fatter because i have a sport event that i need energy for. So does simple carbohydrates still help give u more energy?
  • Yeah definitely. Think about Gatorade or Powerade.
