A general method for selection of alpha-acetolactate decarboxylase-deficient Lactococcus lactis mutants to improve diacetyl formation. (1/531)

The enzyme acetolactate decarboxylase (Ald) plays a key role in the regulation of the alpha-acetolactate pool in both pyruvate catabolism and the biosynthesis of the branched-chain amino acids, isoleucine, leucine, and valine (ILV). This dual role of Ald, due to allosteric activation by leucine, was used as a strategy for the isolation of Ald-deficient mutants of Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis biovar diacetylactis. Such mutants can be selected as leucine-resistant mutants in ILV- or IV-prototrophic strains. Most dairy lactococcus strains are auxotrophic for the three amino acids. Therefore, the plasmid pMC004 containing the ilv genes (encoding the enzymes involved in the biosynthesis of IV) of L. lactis NCDO2118 was constructed. Introduction of pMC004 into ILV-auxotrophic dairy strains resulted in an isoleucine-prototrophic phenotype. By plating the strains on a chemically defined medium supplemented with leucine but not valine and isoleucine, spontaneous leucine-resistant mutants were obtained. These mutants were screened by Western blotting with Ald-specific antibodies for the presence of Ald. Selected mutants lacking Ald were subsequently cured of pMC004. Except for a defect in the expression of Ald, the resulting strain, MC010, was identical to the wild-type strain, as shown by Southern blotting and DNA fingerprinting. The mutation resulting in the lack of Ald in MC010 occurred spontaneously, and the strain does not contain foreign DNA; thus, it can be regarded as food grade. Nevertheless, its application in dairy products depends on the regulation of genetically modified organisms. These results establish a strategy to select spontaneous Ald-deficient mutants from transformable L. lactis strains.  (+info)

Criteria for choosing amino acid therapy in acute renal failure. (2/531)

Metabolic studies were performed on 19 patients with acute renal failure. Therapy included intravenous hyperalimentation using 15 to 20 g of essential amino acids or 20 to 40 g of essential plus nonessential amino acids and hypertonic glucose (37 to 50%). The effect of this parenteral feeding appears to be primarily pharmacological. Hypertonic glucose promotes the hyperinsulinemia important to be membrane function, the operation of the sodium pump, and cell metabolism. Administration of high biological value crystalline amino acdis potentiates the effect of insulin by inhibiting protein breakdown and promoting protein synthesis, particularly in muscle. This reduces tissue catabolism and urea formation, and promotes potassium, magnesium, and phosphate homeostasis. The branched-chain ketogenic amino acids valine, leucine, and isoleucine may be of particular importance. When indicated, administration of renal failure hyperalimentation and peritoneal or hemodialysis can be expected to complement each other and accelerate recovery. This intravenous fluid therapy, in turn, must be coordinated with proper hemodynamics, usually requiring a colloidal solution to maintain intravascular volume, and cardiotrophic agents such as digitalis and dopamine. Early use of renal failure can be expected to demonstrate the most striking response in terms of survival, early recovery from acute renal failure, and the preservation of physiological homeostasis.  (+info)

Effects of dietary mixtures of amino acids on fetal growth and maternal and fetal amino acid pools in experimental maternal phenylketonuria. (3/531)

BACKGROUND: Branched-chain amino acids have been reported to improve fetal brain development in a rat model in which maternal phenylketonuria (PKU) is induced by the inclusion of an inhibitor of phenylalanine hydroxylase, DL-p-chlorophenylalanine, and L-phenylalanine in the diet. OBJECTIVE: We studied whether a dietary mixture of several large neutral amino acids (LNAAs) would improve fetal brain growth and normalize the fetal brain amino acid profile in a rat model of maternal PKU induced by DL-alpha-methylphenylalanine (AMPhe). DESIGN: Long-Evans rats were fed a basal diet or a similar diet containing 0.5% AMPhe + 3.0% L-phenylalanine (AMPhe + Phe diet) from day 11 until day 20 of gestation in experiments to test various mixtures of LNAAs. Maternal weight gains and food intakes to day 20, fetal body and brain weights at day 20, and fetal brain and fetal and maternal plasma amino acid concentrations at day 20 were measured. RESULTS: Concentrations of phenylalanine and tyrosine in fetal brain and in maternal and fetal plasma were higher and fetal brain weights were lower in rats fed the AMPhe + Phe diet than in rats fed the basal diet. However, fetal brain growth was higher and concentrations of phenylalanine and tyrosine in fetal brain and in maternal and fetal plasma were lower in rats fed the AMPhe + Phe diet plus LNAAs than in rats fed the diet containing AMPhe + Phe alone. CONCLUSION: LNAA supplementation of the diet improved fetal amino acid profiles and alleviated most, but not all, of the depression in fetal brain growth observed in this model of maternal PKU.  (+info)

In vitro transcriptional studies of the bkd operon of Pseudomonas putida: L-branched-chain amino acids and D-leucine are the inducers. (4/531)

BkdR is the transcriptional activator of the bkd operon, which encodes the four proteins of the branched-chain keto acid dehydrogenase multienzyme complex of Pseudomonas putida. In this study, hydroxyl radical footprinting revealed that BkdR bound to only one face of DNA over the same region identified in DNase I protection assays. Deletions of even a few bases in the 5' region of the BkdR-binding site greatly reduced transcription, confirming that the entire protected region is necessary for transcription. In vitro transcription of the bkd operon was obtained by using a vector containing the bkdR-bkdA1 intergenic region plus the putative rho-independent terminator of the bkd operon. Substrate DNA, BkdR, and any of the L-branched-chain amino acids or D-leucine was required for transcription. Branched-chain keto acids, D-valine, and D-isoleucine did not promote transcription. Therefore, the L-branched-chain amino acids and D-leucine are the inducers of the bkd operon. The concentration of L-valine required for half-maximal transcription was 2.8 mM, which is similar to that needed to cause half-maximal proteolysis due to a conformational change in BkdR. A model for transcriptional activation of the bkd operon by BkdR during enzyme induction which incorporates these results is presented.  (+info)

Serum hepatocyte growth factor as an index of extensive catabolism of patients awaiting liver transplantation. (5/531)

BACKGROUND: Whole body catabolism as the result of intrahepatic metabolic derangement is common in liver transplant candidates. However, individual nutritional assessment parameters lack sensitivity and specificity in determining energy status of these patients. Recently, serum hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) has been shown to reflect the recovery of hepatic energy metabolism after liver transplantation. AIMS: The relation between preoperative levels of serum HGF and metabolic variables was investigated to clarify the clinical value of measuring HGF in evaluations of the catabolism. PATIENTS/METHODS: Blood samples were obtained from 30 liver transplant recipients, and biopsy specimens were taken from each recipient's rectus muscle and the explanted liver. Preoperative serum concentration of HGF was determined. Whole body energy metabolism was assessed by measuring glycogen contents of biopsy specimens and plasma or serum levels of glucose, insulin, total ketone bodies, total carnitine, and amino acids. RESULTS: Serum HGF concentration was elevated in 22 of 30 patients and correlated with the Child-Pugh score. It showed a negative association with muscle glycogen content, and a positive correlation with serum levels of glucose, total carnitine, and total ketone bodies. Patients with elevated serum HGF concentrations had higher preoperative plasma levels of aromatic amino acids and branched chain amino acids, associated with lower branched chain to aromatic amino acid ratios. CONCLUSIONS: The elevated serum concentration of HGF in liver transplant candidates reflected inhibition of peripheral glucose storage, enhanced lipid oxidation, and increased peripheral release of branched chain amino acids, and thus extensive energy catabolism.  (+info)

Splanchnic and leg substrate exchange after ingestion of a natural mixed meal in humans. (6/531)

The disposal of a mixed meal was examined in 11 male subjects by multiple (splanchnic and femoral) catheterization combined with double-isotope technique (intravenous [2-3H]glucose plus oral U-[14C]starch). Glucose kinetics and organ substrate balance were measured basally and for 5 h after eating pizza (600 kcal) containing carbohydrates 75 g as starch, proteins 37 g, and lipids 17 g. The portal appearance of ingested carbohydrate was maximal (1.0 mmol/min) between 30 and 60 min after the meal and gradually declined thereafter, but was still incomplete at 300 min (0.46+/-0.08 mmol/min). The total amount of glucose absorbed by the gut over the 5 h of the study was 247+/-26 mmol (45+/-6 g), corresponding to 60+/-6% of the ingested starch. Net splanchnic glucose balance (-6.7+/-0.5 micromol x kg(-1) x min(-1), basal) rose by 250-300% between 30 and 60 min and then returned to baseline. Hepatic glucose production (HGP) was suppressed slightly and only tardily in response to meal ingestion (approximately 30% between 120 and 300 min). Splanchnic glucose uptake (3.7+/-0.6 micromol x kg(-1) x min(-1), basal) peaked to 9.8+/-2.0 micromol x kg(-1) x min(-1) (P<0.001) at 120 min and then returned slowly to baseline. Leg glucose uptake (34+/-5 micromol x leg(-1) x min(-1), basal) rose to 151+/-29 micromol x leg(-1) x min(-1) at 30 min (P<0.001) and remained above baseline until the end of the study, despite no increase in leg blood flow. The total amount of glucose taken up by the splanchnic area and total muscle mass was 161+/-16 mmol (29+/-3 g) and 128 mmol (23 g), respectively, which represent 39 and 30% of the ingested starch. Arterial blood lactate increased by 30% after meal ingestion. Net splanchnic lactate balance switched from a basal net uptake (3.2+/-0.6 micromol kg(-1) x min(-1) to a net output between 60 and 120 min and tended to zero thereafter. Leg lactate release (25+/-11 micromol x leg(-1) x min(-1), basal) drastically decreased postprandially. Arterial concentration of both branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) and non-branched-chain amino acids (N-BCAA) increased significantly after meal ingestion (P<0.001). The splanchnic area switched from a basal net amino acid uptake (31+/-16 and 92+/-48 micromol/min for BCAA and N-BCAA, respectively) to a net amino acid release postprandially. The net splanchnic amino acid release over 5 h was 11.3+/-4.2 mmol for BCAA and 37.8+/-9.7 mmol for N-BCAA. Basally, the net leg balance of BCAA was neutral (-3+/-5 micromol x leg(-1) x min(-1)), whereas that of N-BCAA indicated a net release (54+/-14 micromol x leg(-1) x min(-1)). After meal ingestion, there was a net leg uptake of BCAA (20+/-6 micromol x leg(-1) x min(-1)), whereas leg release of N-BCAA decreased by 50%. It is concluded that in human subjects, 1) the absorption of a natural mixed meal is still incomplete at 5 h after ingestion; 2) HGP is only marginally and tardily inhibited; 3) splanchnic and peripheral tissues contribute to the disposal of meal carbohydrate to approximately the same extent; 4) the splanchnic area transfers >30% of the ingested proteins to the systemic circulation; and 5) after meal ingestion, skeletal muscle takes up BCAA to replenish muscle protein stores.  (+info)

Branched-chain amino acid therapy for spinocerebellar degeneration: a pilot clinical crossover trial. (7/531)

OBJECT: The potential effects of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) on spinocerebellar degeneration (SCD) were explored in eleven patients. METHODS: The patients received 200 ml of BCAA-rich solution, 2 mg of thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH; protirelin), or a placebo daily for 7 days each in a random order. An SCD score was used to quantify the severity of symptoms. PATIENTS: Eleven patients with SCD (7 male, 4 female; mean age 60+/-11; mean disease duration 5.5 years) participated in this study. RESULTS: The mean SCD score of the eleven patients improved significantly by the BCAA treatment compared with the baseline. The conditions of five of the eleven patients (45%) were clearly improved by the BCAA treatment. All of the responders manifested predominantly cerebellar symptoms, but no prominent parkinsonian symptoms. Two patients with marked rigidity and akinesia did not respond to the treatment. CONCLUSION: We concluded that BCAAs do have a beneficial effect on functional improvement in patients with SCD, and that further large scale studies are needed.  (+info)

Contribution of branched-chain amino acids to uteroplacental ammonia production in sheep. (8/531)

The uteroplacental tissues are a principal site of ammonia production for the conceptus. The goal of this study was to examine the effect of the composition of maternal amino acid (AA) infusate on uteroplacental ammonia production. Seven pregnant ewes (126 +/- 1. 4 days gestation) were infused through the maternal femoral vein (duration 3.5 h, rate 240 ml per hour) with three solutions of AAs. The first infusate was comparable to commercial parenteral nutrition preparations, the second infusate contained the same solution without branched-chain AAs (BCAAs), and the third infusate contained only BCAAs. Blood samples were simultaneously collected from the maternal artery, uterine vein, fetal artery, and umbilical vein to determine plasma AA concentrations and whole blood ammonia concentrations, before (control) and 2 h after (experimental) the start of infusion. Uterine and umbilical blood flows were measured using the ethanol steady-state diffusion method. Results showed that fetal arterial and venous ammonia concentrations increased significantly after infusions with all AAs or only BCAAs, but not without BCAAs. Uteroplacental ammonia production increased in response to each of the three infusates. However, this increase was much greater when the BCAAs were present in infusates. We conclude that there is a significant contribution of BCAAs to the uteroplacental ammonia production. Maternal AA infusions containing BCAAs can result in increased fetal blood ammonia concentrations.  (+info)

Title: Branched-chain Amino Acid Oxidation in Skeletal Muscle - Physiological and Clinical Importance of its Modulation by Reactant Availability. VOLUME: 7 ISSUE: 1. Author(s):Milan Holecek. Affiliation:Department of Physiology, Charles University in Prague, Faculty of Medicine in Hradec Kralove, Simkova 870, 500 38 Hradec Kralove, Czech Republic.. Keywords:Branched-chain amino acids, cachexia, glutamine, muscle, nutrition, leucine, cachectic illness, physiological conditions, Decarboxylation of BCKA, glutamine supplementation. Abstract: Enhanced oxidation of branched-chain amino acids (BCAA; valine, leucine and isoleucine) in skeletal muscle is a typical metabolic alteration associated with activated synthesis of glutamine and development of muscle wasting in cachectic illness. The paper demonstrates that the rates of BCAA transamination and decarboxylation in skeletal muscle respond rapidly to changes in BCAA and glutamine availability. Enhanced BCAA availability increases BCAA oxidation and ...

Branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) in plasma are discussed as risk factors for the onset of several diseases. Information about the contribution of the overall diet to plasma BCAA concentrations is controversial. Our objective was to investigate which dietary pattern is associated with plasma BCAA concentrations and whether other additional nutrients besides BCAA further characterize this dietary pattern. Based on the cross-sectional KarMeN study, fasting plasma amino acid (AA) concentrations, as well as current and habitual dietary intake were assessed in 298 healthy individuals. Using reduced rank regression, we derived a habitual dietary pattern that explained 32.5% of plasma BCAA variation. This pattern was high in meat, sausages, sauces, eggs, and ice cream but low in nuts, cereals, mushrooms, and pulses. The age, sex, and energy intake adjusted dietary pattern score was associated with an increase in animal-based protein together with a decrease in plant-based protein, dietary fiber, and an
This study aimed to determine the effects of diets chronically supplemented with branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) on the fatigue mechanisms of trained rats. Thirty-six adult Wistar rats were trained for six weeks. The training protocol consisted of bouts of swimming exercise (one hour a day, five times a week, for six weeks). The animals received a control diet (C) (n = 12), a diet supplemented with 3.57% BCAA (S1) (n = 12), or a diet supplemented with 4.76% BCAA (S2) (n = 12). On the last day of the training protocol, half the animals in each group were sacrificed after one hour of swimming (1H), and the other half after a swimming exhaustion test (EX). Swimming time until exhaustion was increased by 37% in group S1 and reduced by 43% in group S2 compared to group C. Results indicate that the S1 diet had a beneficial effect on performance by sparing glycogen in the soleus muscle (p | 0.05) and by inducing a lower concentration of plasma ammonia, whereas the S2 diet had a negative effect on performance
SCOPE: This study addresses the effects of branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) on global gene expression in liver and skeletal muscle and the molecular mechanisms underlying the improvement in liver cirrhosis using DNA microarray analysis combined with
1. The oxidation of the three branched-chain amino acids was regulated in parallel fashion in rat tissues studied in vitro. 2. With 0.1 mM-[1-14C]isoleucine as substrate in the presence of 5.5 mM-glucose, 14CO2 production was 0.6 mumol/2 h per g in the aorta, 0.3 in peripheral nerve, 0.2 in muscle and 0.13 in spinal cord. 3. The ratio 14C oxidized/14C incorporated into proteins with 0.1 mM-[1-14C]leucine was 1.3 in hemidiaphragms, 3.3 in sciatic nerve and 1.0 in nerves undergoing Wallerian degeneration. Leucine oxidation decreased only slightly during degeneration, but protein synthesis doubled. 4. Hemidiaphragms incubated with [1-14C]leucine or 4-methyl-2-oxo[1-14C]pentanoate increased 14CO2 production 7-9-fold as substrate concentration was increased from 0.1 to 0.5 mM; under the same conditions 14CO2 production by nerves increased only 2-3-fold. 5. 2-Oxoglutarate stimulated the oxidation of the branched-chain amino acids by muscles and peripheral nerves and the oxidation of ...
What do they do?. The branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are leucine, isoleucine, and valine. BCAAs are considered essential amino acids because human beings cannot survive unless these amino acids are present in the diet.. BCAAs are needed for the maintenance of muscle tissue and appear to preserve muscle stores of glycogen (a storage form of carbohydrate that can be converted into energy).1 BCAAs also help prevent muscle protein breakdown during exercise.2. Some research has shown that BCAA supplementation (typically 10-20 grams per day) does not result in meaningful changes in body composition,3 nor does it improve exercise performance4 5 6 7 8 or enhance the effects of physical training.9 10 However, BCAA supplementation may be useful in special situations, such as preventing muscle loss at high altitudes11 and prolonging endurance performance in the heat.12 Studies by one group of researchers suggest that BCAA supplementation may also improve exercise-induced declines in some aspects of ...
One supplement which I always recommend all of my clients touse is BCAAs, and I would recommend you to do the same. After getting yourprotein supplements bought there is no question in my mind that BCAAs are themost important supplement if protecting your muscle, building muscle and promotingmuscle recovery is of importance to you. In short, any athlete who exercisesregularly needs BCAAs in my mind!What are BCAAs? BCAAs are simply essential amino acids whichaccount for about 35-40% of your overall amino acid count. The body is able toproduce the other 60-65% but without proper nutrition and supplementation itwill not be able to benefit from the essential amino acids. These are known asleucine, isoleucine and valine. When you supplement with BCAAs your body isable to metabolise them within the muscle. BCAA products which have a high concentrationin leucine are generally more beneficial due to the increase anti-cataboliceffects this amino acid can offer.Why do I need BCAAs? Above we touched on some of the

Leg-muscle force during maximal voluntary isometric contractions was measured 2 d after exercise (Day 3), and the BCAA supplementation suppressed the muscle-force decrease (to ~80% of the value recorded under the control conditions) observed in the placebo trial. Plasma BCAA concentrations, which decreased after exercise in the placebo trial, were markedly elevated during the 2 hr postexercise in the BCAA trial. Serum myoglobin concentration was increased by exercise in the placebo but not in the BCAA trial. The concentration of plasma elastase as an index of neutrophil activation appeared to increase after the squat exercise in both trials, but the change in the elastase level was significant only in the placebo trial ...
the mitochondrial branched-chain aminotransferase (BCATm, encoded by BCAT2 gene) catalyzes the rapid and reversible transamination of branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs, including Leu, Ile, and Val) in many peripheral tissues (36, 53). BCAAs are essential amino acids that frequently represent the most abundant component of dietary protein, and dietary supplementation with BCAA has been linked to positive health benefits such as satiety, lean body mass, muscle protein accretion, and glucose homeostasis (for review see Ref. 49). Paradoxically, increased plasma BCAAs have been shown to be predictive of an increased risk of diabetes mellitus and insulin resistance or have been associated with these disorders (1, 7, 10, 14, 21, 47, 58, 63, 73, 75, 84, 85, 87). While understanding the factors underlying this paradox is an active area of investigation, these positive and negative health associations have frequently been attributed, rightly or wrongly, to the ability of BCAAs to act as direct or indirect ...
Dr. Chen-Kang Chang and team studied the effects of branched-chain amino acids (BCAA), arginine, and citrulline supplementation on central fatigue. Between periods of intensive Taekwando exercise, they measured the premotor reaction time of athletes who were given amino acid (AA) supplements versus those who received a placebo. They also measured the ratios of free tryptophan to BCAA, since tryptophan is a precursor to serotonin- a molecule that may be responsible for lethargy when present in high levels ...

Decrease in blood concentration of branched-chain amino acids, especially leucine, is known to promote liver carcinogenesis in patients with chronic liver disease, but the mechanism is unclear. We herein established hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) cells knocked out for DEPDC5 by using the CRISPR/Cas9 system, and elucidated that cell viability of the DEPDC5 knockout (DEPDC5-KO) cells was higher than that of the DEPDC5 wild-type (DEPDC5-WT) under leucine starvation. Considering that autophagy deficiency might be involved in acquired resistance to leucine deprivation, we observed reduction of LC3-II followed by accumulation of p62 in the DEPDC5-KO, which induced reactive oxygen species (ROS) tolerance ...

Information about Branched-Chain Amino Acids, including dosage recommendations, uses, potential side effects, and deficiency signs
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Branched chain amino acids - made up of Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine - comprise approximately 35% of the amino acid composition of muscle tissue. Branched chain amino acids (BCAAs) have attracted a lot of interest in body building and strength based sports because they are the only amino acids that are actually metabolised in the muscle. BCAAs are converted into two other amino acids - glutamine and alanine - which are released in large quantities during intense aerobic exercise. They can also be used directly by the muscles, particularly when muscle glycogen is depleted.

The Western meat-rich diet is both high in protein and fat. Although the hazardous effect of a high fat diet (HFD) upon liver structure and function is well recognized, whether the co-presence of high protein intake contributes to, or protects against, HF-induced hepatic injury remains unclear. Increased intake of branched chain amino acids (BCAA, essential amino acids compromising 20% of total protein intake) reduces body weight. However, elevated circulating BCAA is associated with non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and injury. The mechanisms responsible for this quandary remain unknown; the role of BCAA in HF-induced liver injury is unclear. Utilizing HFD or HFD+BCAA models, we demonstrated BCAA supplementation attenuated HFD-induced weight gain, decreased fat mass, activated mammalian target of rapamycin (mTOR), inhibited hepatic lipogenic enzymes, and reduced hepatic triglyceride content. However, BCAA caused significant hepatic damage in HFD mice, evidenced by exacerbated hepatic oxidative stress,

Insulin stimulates muscle protein synthesis when the levels of total amino acids, or at least the essential amino acids, are at or above their postabsorptive concentrations. Among the essential amino acids, branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) have the primarily role in stimulating muscle protein synthesis, and are commonly sought alone to stimulate muscle protein synthesis in humans. Fourteen healthy, young subjects were studied before and after insulin infusion to examine whether insulin stimulates muscle protein synthesis in relation to the availability of BCAA alone. Half of the subjects were studied in the presence of postabsorptive BCAA concentrations (Control), while the other half in the presence of increased plasma BCAA (BCAA). When compared to that prior to the initiation of the insulin infusion, fractional synthesis rate of muscle protein (%/hour) did not change (P , 0 .05) during insulin in either the Control (0.04 ± 0.01 vs 0.05 ± 0.01) or the BCAA (0.05 ± 0.02 vs 0.05 ± 0.01) ...

Its true that BCAAs may help athletes perform better physically. This may be true especially for inexperienced athletes who arent very skilled at maintaining energy and stamina. In these cases, BCAAs are usually taken to prevent fatigue. And, like caffeine, these amino acids may also help improve concentration, which may be helpful to athletes in a competitive scenario. Taking BCAAs for muscle growth is probably only beneficial for people who dont get enough protein in their regular diets. In these situations, BCAAs may promote synthesis of the muscle protein in order to support muscle growth and prevent muscle breakdown during difficult workouts. In fact, there is some evidence that BCAAs are beneficial to several different tissues and organs in the body in addition to muscular tissue.. ...

BCAA Complex contains the ideal 2:1:1 ratio of the free-form, crystalline branched chain amino acids L-Leucine, L-Isoleucine and L-Valine combined with the conditionally essential amino acid L-Glutamine. The higher amount of Leucine reflects its importance in muscle metabolism as the most effective branch chain amino acid for stimulation of protein synthesis and it is more readily utilized for energy. BCAAs exert an anticatabolic effect by reducing the breakdown of protein, thereby protecting muscle tissue. Glutamine is a preferred source of fuel for the intestinal cells and is in high demand by skeletal muscles following physical exertion. Vitamin B6 enhances amino acid metabolism. These statements have not been evaluated by the food and Drug Administration. This
Branched Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs) have become a staple in most bodybuilders, physique athletes and even sports mens supplement stacks. They are renowned for aiding in muscle recovery and growth as they are able to combat catabolism.Below we have expert, Just Maguires explanation as to why they are so effective!BCAA aids the release of insulin when glucose is present, thus increasing the drive of glucose to muscle cells. When glucose load is not present with BCAA inclusion then the outcome will be an increase in glucagon output, this in term increases growth hormone production and leptin sensitivity. So as you can see not only are brach chain amino acids necessary for prevention of excessive proteolysis during training but they also serve a purpose in regulating energy output through hormonal adaptation.With that said we believe Reflex BCAAs are a great value product!

They are Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine and are believed to be the major amino acids that are oxidized in skeletal muscle. (Alanine, Aspartate, and Glutamate may also be used) Novice athletes and those with low dietary intake of protein can benefit from supplementation with BCAAs due to their ability to promote muscle protein synthesis and muscle growth over time.. Leucine: Aids in muscle protein synthesis (the KEY amino acid and is currently thought to be the rate limiting factor in regards to maximizing muscle protein synthesis within the capacity of skeletal muscle, rather than the total number of protein ingested). Isoleucine: Induces glucose uptake into the cell. Valine: Role is still not fully understood. Meat and eggs have all the BCAAs you should need in a day to be healthy unless you are protein deficient. ...

Consisting of isoleucine, leucine and valine, branched chain amino acids (BCAA) are nutrients that the body needs but cant produce on its own, requiring a dietary or supplemental source. Foods that are rich in BCAA include meat, dairy and soy products, as well as poultry and eggs. Leucine, which was discovered in the early 19th century, is widely considered to be the most prominent of the branched chain amino acids, but the three work together to offer a number of health-supporting qualities. Branched chain amino acids are the building blocks of protein, and are perhaps most famous for their important role in muscle growth, maintenance and repair.**. Branched chain amino acids have become increasingly popular with athletes, particularly those involved in weight training, due to their ability to modulate the metabolism of muscle protein. In fact, science has shown that BCAA make up approximately one-third of the protein found in muscle. Studies have indicated that BCAA are rapidly absorbed into ...

BCAAs have been proposed to benefit performance in several ways including as a stimulant for muscle protein synthesis (through leucine). BCAAs may also prevent muscle protein breakdown and reduce markers of exercise induced muscle damage. There is also some research suggesting that BCCAs have the potential to act as a fuel source for muscles during exercise, although the research surrounding this is inconclusive. Lastly, BCAAs may interfere with the transport of tryptophan into the brain, reducing the synthesis of serotonin thereby reducing feelings of fatigue.. ...
Branch Chain Amino Acids (BCAA). Branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) is the name given to three of the eight essential amino acids needed to make protein: leucine, isoleucine and valine. They are called branched-chain because their structure has a branch off the main trunk of the molecule. The combination of these three essential amino acids makes up approximately one-third of skeletal muscle in the human body. The body cannot produce BCAAs on its own, but must obtain through diet or supplementation. In order to get energy, the body can actually break down muscle in order to obtain BCAAs. By supplementing BCAAs during and after your workout, you can help prevent muscle tissue breakdown, which occurs as a natural part of metabolism.. ...
Before creatine, arginine and whey protein ranked supreme as popular bodybuilding supplements, the branched-chain amino acids were the hot ticket for bodybuilders. Today, BCAAs are back on the must-have list of supplements because bodybuilders have found that they work well to enhance muscle growth, strength, energy and even fat loss. If youre not using them, heres your guide to why you should.
Protein synthesis and tissue repair - proteins are sources of amino acids. Amino acids play a very important role in maintaining normal functioning in the human body. In fact, absences of one or more of these amino acids lead to disease conditions such as depression and phenylketonuria. Whey protein contains a great amount of leucine and branched-chain amino acids. These amino acids spark the process of protein synthesis (the production of protein). Protein synthesis is very important in tissue repair and recovery. In cases the cells or tissues in the body are damaged, these amino acids stimulate the production of more proteins in order to repair and strengthen them. Breaks in the skin or in the muscles, in cases of trauma are situations where protein synthesis is highly needed. High amounts of leucine and branched-chain amino acid would spark protein synthesis, closing the wound faster and preventing the person from getting further infections.

Purpose: To determine if leucine or BCAA ingestion increases the activation of the ERK1/2 MAPK pathway greater than that which resistance exercise (RE) elicits alone; to determine a possible mechanism for a BCAA or leucine induced ERK1/2 MAPK pathway via IRS-1 and SHP-2. Methods: 30 males (22.5yrs; 81.1kg) were randomly assigned to 1 of 3 groups: Leucine (60mg/kg/bw), BCAA (120mg/kg/bw), or placebo. Subjects performed 4 sets of leg press and leg extension at 80% 1RM to failure. Supplementation was ingested at 3 time points: 30 minutes prior to RE, and immediately pre- and post-RE. Venous blood was sampled at baseline; 30min later, immediate post-exercise, 30min post-exercise; 2hrs post-exercise, and 6hrs post-exercise for serum glucose, insulin, GH, and IGF-1. Muscle biopsies were sampled at baseline, and 30min post, 2hr post, and 6hr post-exercise for MEK1, ERK1/2, IRS-1, and SHP-2. Skeletal muscle variables were transformed to delta values and analyzed via a 3 (group) x 4 (time points) ...
Branched-chain amino acids stimulate the building of protein in muscle and possibly reduce muscle breakdown. Branched-chain amino acids seem to prevent faulty message transmission in the brain cells of people with advanced liver disease, mania, tardive dyskinesia, and anorexia. - WebMD
Lactic acid bacteria are essential as flavor producers of cheese and fermented products. They are capable of catabolizing aromatic, branched chain, and sulfur amino acids to flavor compounds. During cheese ripening the numbers of lactococcal colonies decrease, but lactococci survive without replication in culture. This prompted an investigation into possible mechanisms of catabolism of branched chain amino acids into branched chain fatty acids and the physiological relevance of amino acid catabolism to the bacteria. We hypothesized that lactococci catabolize branched chain amino acids to branched chain fatty acids during nonculturability. Lactococci, lactobacilli, and brevibacteria catabolized both branched chain amino acids and keto acids into branched chain fatty acids. Lactococci survived carbohydrate-limited conditions for over 4 yrs. Their survival was represented by maintaining intracellular ATP, enzyme activity, membrane integrity, capability of ATP- and PMF-dependent substrate transport,

How and when should you take BCAAs ? Usually 4-10 grams of BCAAs (combined, not of each BCAA) before and after a workout is the best dose for most people. Of course, those with body weight between 100-150lbs would take a smaller dose (4-5 grams) while those 150 and above would tend toward the higher side (8-10 grams). The best way to take these supplements is to monitor how you feel on them and take a month to use them before a workout only, then a month to do after, then both and analyze which method gave you the best results! Some people like to mix BCAAs in their water bottle and drink while they workout. Obviously, there are many ways to use this supplement! Everyones body is a bit different, so trial and evaluation is the only way to find the best fit for you ...
Another way soy accelerates fat loss is with its unique concentration of amino acids. Soy-protein isolate has the highest concentration of amino acids in what is called the "critical cluster". This cluster of amino acids contains the three branch chain amino acids (BCAAs) and two essential aminos - glutamine and arginine. These critical amino acids help a bodybuilder spare muscle while losing body fat during a pre-contest diet. Any time you diet, your body tries to break down muscle glycogen in an effort to provide the body with more calories. In fact, your body will often try to use broken down muscle for fuel before it uses stored body fat. This is called muscle catabolism or muscle breakdown. These three branch chain amino acids are the first amino acids that are used for fuel when your body begins muscle catabolism. If you have a high amount of these branch chain amino acids in your diet, your body will first use these for fuel before it breaks down your stored muscle ...
Of the eight essential amino acids that cannot be produced by the body‚ the three branched-chain aminos Leucine‚ Isoleucine and Valine are of key importance. Based on their unique structure‚ activity‚ storage and metabolism‚ BCAAs have become a staple in the lives of many athletes and physically active individuals. They account for nearly 1/3 of the amino acids in muscle protein‚ and play a number of key roles in the repair and growth of muscle tissues. These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). These products are not meant to diagnose‚ treat or cure any disease or medical condition.

Leucine, Isoleucine and Valine belong to the family of protein building Branched-Chain Amino Acids (BCAAs). They are among the 9 essential aminos for humans, because our bodies cant manufacture them, so their only source is our daily food or food supplementation.. BCAAs account for 35% of the essential amino acids in muscle proteins. On the other hand, Glutamine is a top ingredient for athletes in popularity, so we included it to boost Glutamine intake levels. As a plus, BCAA+GLUTAMINE XPRESS is fortified with Taurine as well!. The 1:1 combination of high dose BCAAs and Glutamine in this scientifically formulated powder promotes muscle recovery during and after high-intensity workouts preventing undesirable muscle breakdown and performance decrease.. ...

The protein in itself will definitely aid in muscle recovery, but your muscles cant completely Recuperate or mature without having a enough source of BCAAs ...
Branched-chain amino acids are used to enhance athletic performance, stimulate muscle growth, and encourage strength and endurance, and improve muscle recovery time.
Ristow says that the multiple branched-chain amino acids are already being used to treat liver damage and are also added to sport nutrition products. "However, the point is not for people to grow even older, but rather to stay healthy for longer," says the internist. The study will deliver important indicators on how the ageing process could be influenced and how age-related diseases such as diabetes or high blood pressure could be prevented. In light of unfavourable demographics and steadily increasing life expectancy, it is important to extend the healthy life phase and not to reach an even higher age that is characterised by chronic diseases, argue the researchers. With such preventive measures, an elderly person could greatly improve their quality of life while at the same time cutting their healthcare costs by more than half ...
Branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are naturally-occurring molecules that form the building blocks of protein. BCAA supplements may improve appetite in cancer patients and slow the progression of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). BCAAs are also used to potentially boost athletic performance.

We previously showed that the oxidation of branched-chain amino acids is increased in rats treated with clofibrate [Paul and Adibi (1980) J. Clin. Invest. 65, 1285-1293]. Two subsequent studies have reported contradictory results regarding the effect of clofibrate treatment on gene expression of branched-chain keto acid dehydrogenase (BCKDH) in rat liver. Furthermore, there has been no previous study of the effect of clofibrate treatment on gene expression of BCKDH kinase, which regulates the activity of BCKDH by phosphorylation. The purpose of the present study was to investigate the above issues. Clofibrate treatment for 2 weeks resulted in (a) a 3-fold increase in the flux through BCKDH in mitochondria isolated from rat liver, and (b) a modest but significant increase in the activity of BCKDH. However, clofibrate treatment had no significant effect on the mass of E1α, E1β, and E2 subunits of BCKDH or the abundance of mRNAs encoding these subunits. On the other hand, clofibrate treatment ...

Toxoplasma gondii belongs to the coccidian-subgroup of the Apicomplexa phylum. The Coccidia are obligate intracellular pathogens that establish infection in their mammalian host via the enteric route. These parasites lack a mitochondrial pyruvate dehydrogenase complex but have preserved the degradation of branched-chain amino acids (BCAA) as a possible pathway to generate acetyl-CoA. Importantly, degradation of leucine, isoleucine and valine could lead to concomitant accumulation of propionyl-CoA, a toxic metabolite that inhibits cell growth. Like fungi and bacteria, the Coccidia possess the complete set of enzymes necessary to metabolize and detoxify propionate by oxidation to pyruvate via the 2-methylcitrate cycle (2-MCC). Phylogenetic analysis provides evidence that the 2-MCC was acquired via horizontal gene transfer. In T. gondii tachyzoites, this pathway is split between the cytosol and the mitochondrion. Although the rate-limiting enzyme 2-methylisocitrate lyase is dispensable for parasite ...
