CCK receptor dysfunction in muscle membranes from human gallbladders with cholesterol stones. (1/119)

Human gallbladders with cholesterol stones exhibit impaired muscle contraction induced by agonists that act on transmembrane receptors, increased membrane cholesterol content, and abnormal cholesterol-to-phospholipid ratio compared with those with pigment stones. The present study was designed to investigate the functions of the CCK receptor of gallbladder muscle membranes by radioreceptor assay and cross-linking. 125I-labeled CCK-8 binding was time-dependent, competitive, and specific. Scatchard analysis showed that the maximum specific binding (Bmax) was significantly decreased in cholesterol compared with pigment stone gallbladders (0.18 +/- 0. 07 vs. 0.38 +/- 0.05 pmol/mg protein, P < 0.05). In contrast, the affinity for CCK was higher in cholesterol than pigment stone gallbladders (0.18 +/- 0.06 vs. 1.2 +/- 0.23 nM). Similar results were observed in binding studies with the CCK-A receptor antagonist [3H]L-364,718. Cross-linking and saturation binding studies also showed significantly less CCK binding in gallbladders with cholesterol stones. These abnormalities were reversible after incubation with cholesterol-free liposomes. The Bmax increased (P < 0.01) and the dissociation constant decreased (P < 0.001) after incubation with cholesterol-free liposomes. In conclusion, human gallbladders with cholesterol stones have impaired CCK receptor binding compared with those with pigment stones. These changes are reversed by removal of the excess membrane cholesterol. These receptor alterations may contribute to the defective contractility of the gallbladder muscle in patients with cholesterol stones.  (+info)

Fluorescence polarization studies on four biliproteins and a bilin model for phycoerythrin 545. (2/119)

Fluorescence (excitation) polarization spectroscopy in the wavelength region of the bilin chromophores was applied to phycoerythrocyanin (CV-phycocyanin), phycocyanins 645 and 612, and phycoerythrin 545. The cryptomonad biliproteins - phycoerythrin 545 and phycocyanins 612 and 645 - were studied as both protein dimers having an alpha(2)beta(2) polypeptide structure and as alphabeta monomers. The cyanobacterial phycoerythrocyanin (CV-phycocyanin) was a trimeric oligomer. The changes in polarization across the spectrum were attributed to transfers of energy between bilins. Cryptomonad biliproteins are isolated as dimers. The similarities between their steady-state fluorescence polarization spectra and those of the corresponding monomers suggested that the monomers' conformations were analogous to the dimers. This supports the use of monomers in the study of dimer bilin organization. The unusual polarization spectrum of phycoerythrin 545 was explained using a model for the topography of its bilins. Obtaining the emission spectra of phycoerythrin 545 at several temperatures and a deconvolution of the dimer circular dichroism spectrum also successfully tested the bilin model. Circular dichroism spectroscopy was used to determine which polarization changes are formed by Forster resonance energy transfers and which may be produced by internal conversions between high- and low-energy states of pairs of exciton-coupled bilins. Attempts were made to assign energy transfer events to the corresponding changes in fluorescence polarization for each of the four biliproteins.  (+info)

In vitro assembly of phytochrome B apoprotein with synthetic analogs of the phytochrome chromophore. (3/119)

Phytochrome B (PhyB), one of the major photosensory chromoproteins in plants, mediates a variety of light-responsive developmental processes in a photoreversible manner. To analyze the structural requirements of the chromophore for the spectral properties of PhyB, we have designed and chemically synthesized 20 analogs of the linear tetrapyrrole (bilin) chromophore and reconstituted them with PhyB apoprotein (PHYB). The A-ring acts mainly as the anchor for ligation to PHYB, because the modification of the side chains at the C2 and C3 positions did not significantly influence the formation or difference spectra of adducts. In contrast, the side chains of the B- and C-rings are crucial to position the chromophore properly in the chromophore pocket of PHYB and for photoreversible spectral changes. The side-chain structure of the D-ring is required for the photoreversible spectral change of the adducts. When methyl and ethyl groups at the C17 and C18 positions are replaced with an n-propyl, n-pentyl, or n-octyl group, respectively, the photoreversible spectral change of the adducts depends on the length of the side chains. From these studies, we conclude that each pyrrole ring of the linear tetrapyrrole chromophore plays a different role in chromophore assembly and the photochromic properties of PhyB.  (+info)

Sequence of heme decomposition by the coupled oxidation of myoglobin with ascorbic acid. (4/119)

Occurrence of a biliverdin-iron complex or verdoheme as the final oxidation product of heme moiety in the coupled oxidation of myoglobin and ascorbic acid in air was evidenced and the sequence of heme decomposition in this reaction system was concluded to proceed in the order of protoheme, hydroxyheme and biliverdin-iron complex or verdoheme. The final oxidation product usually remains attaached to globin and appears to give a diffuse absorption possibly with a peak at 760 nm at neutral pH. In alkaline solution the compound exhibits an absorption peak at 840 nm, and when reduced with Na(2)S(2)O(4), it is readily converted to biliverdin which exhibits a large absorption with a peak originally at 800 nm, being followed by a gradual shift to 760 nm.  (+info)

Effect of metiamide on the response to secretin and cholecystokinin in man. (5/119)

The effects of intravenous metiamide on the pancreatic exocrine response to intravenous infusion of secretin plus cholecystokinin has been studied in eight patients with duodenal ulceration. The secretion of bicarbonate and water was not altered by metiamide. The secretion of enzymes was significantly less than control during infusion of metiamide. The differences between the pancreatic and gastric responses to metiamide are discussed.  (+info)

Bile bilirubin pigment analysis in disorders of bilirubin metabolism in early infancy. (6/119)

BACKGROUND: Early and accurate diagnosis of Crigler-Najjar syndrome, which causes prolonged unconjugated hyperbilirubinaemia in infancy, is important, as orthotopic liver transplantation is the definitive treatment. AIM: To determine whether bilirubin pigment analysis of bile in infants with prolonged unconjugated hyperbilirubinaemia provides useful diagnostic information in the first 3 months of life. METHODS: Retrospective review of patients with prolonged unconjugated hyperbilirubinaemia referred to the liver unit, Birmingham Children's Hospital, for the diagnosis of Crigler-Najjar syndrome. Bile bilirubin pigment composition was determined by high performance liquid chromatography. Initial diagnoses were made based on the result of bile bilirubin pigment composition. Final diagnoses were made after reviewing the clinical course, response to phenobarbitone, repeat bile bilirubin pigment composition analysis, and genetic studies. RESULTS: Between 1992 and 1999, nine infants aged less than 3 months of age with prolonged hyperbilirubinaemia underwent bile bilirubin pigment analyses. Based on these, two children were diagnosed with Crigler-Najjar syndrome (CNS) type 1, six with CNS type 2, and one with Gilbert's syndrome. Five children whose initial diagnosis was CNS type 2 had resolution of jaundice and normalisation of serum bilirubin after discontinuing phenobarbitone, and these cases were thought to be normal or to have Gilbert's syndrome. One of the initial cases of CNS type 1 responded to phenobarbitone with an 80% reduction in serum bilirubin consistent with CNS type 2. In all, the diagnoses of six cases needed to be reviewed. CONCLUSIONS: Early bile pigment analysis, performed during the first 3 months of life, often shows high levels of unconjugated bilirubin or bilirubin monoconjugates, leading to the incorrect diagnosis of both type 1 and type 2 Crigler-Najjar syndrome.  (+info)

Separation by thin-layer chromatography and structure elucidation of bilirubin conjugates isolated from dog bile. (7/119)

1. A system for separation of bile pigments by t.l.c. and for their structure elucidation is presented. Separated bile pigments are characterized by t.l.c. of derived dipyrrolic azopigments. 2. At the tetrapyrrolic stage hydrolysis in strongly alkaline medium followed by t.l.c. demonstrates the presence of bilirubin-IIIalpha, -IXalpha and -XIIIalpha and allows assessment of their relative amounts. 3. Most structural information is derived from analysis of dipyrrolic azopigments. Such derivatives, obtained by treatment of separated bile pigments with diazotized ethyl anthranilate, were separated and purified by t.l.c. Micro methods showed (a) the nature of the dipyrrolic aglycone, (b) the nature of the bonds connecting aglycone to a conjugating group, (c) the ratio of vinyl/isovinyl isomers present in the aglycone and, (d) the nature of the conjugating groups (by suitable derivative formation and t.l.c. with reference to known compounds). 4. In bile of normal dogs at least 20 tetrapyrrolic, diazo-positive bile pigments could be recognized. Except for two pigments the tetrapyrrolic nucleus corresponded predominantly to bilirubin-IXalpha. All conjugated pigments had their conjugating groups connected in ester linkage to the tetrapyrrolic aglycone, Apart from bilirubin-IXalpha, monoconjugates and homogeneous and mixed diconjugates of bilirubin were demonstrated; conjugating groups of major importance were xylose, glucose and glucuronic acid. 5. Bilirubin isomer determination on native bile and isolated bile pigments, and dipyrrole-exchange assays with [14C8]bilirubin indicated (a) that the conjugates pre-exist in bile, and (b) that no significant dipyrrole exchange occurs during isolation of the pigments.  (+info)

Recombinant holophytochrome in Escherichia coli. (8/119)

We have successfully co-expressed two genes from the bilin biosynthetic pathway of Synechocystis together with cyanobacterial phytochrome 1 (Cph1) from the same organism to produce holophytochrome in Escherichia coli. Heme oxygenase was used to convert host heme to biliverdin IXalpha which was then reduced to phycocyanobilin via phycocyanobilin:ferredoxin oxidoreductase, presumably with the aid of host ferredoxin. In this host environment Cph1 apophytochrome was able to autoassemble with the phycocyanobilin in vivo to form fully photoreversible holophytochrome. The system can be used as a tool for further genetic studies of phytochrome function and signal transduction as well as providing an excellent source of holophytochrome for physicochemical studies.  (+info)

The biochemistry of the porphyrins and of the bile pigments are closely related topics. Heme is synthesized from porphyrins and iron, and the products of degradation of heme are the bile pigments and iron. The biochemistry of the porphyrins and of heme is basic to understanding the varied functions of hemoproteins, and the porphyrias, a group of diseases caused by abnormalities in the pathway of porphyrin biosynthesis. A much more common clinical condition is jaundice, a consequence of an elevated level of plasma bilirubin, due either to overproduction of bilirubin or to failure of its excretion. Jaundice occurs in numerous diseases ranging from hemolytic anemias to viral hepatitis and to cancer of the pancreas. ...
1. In four animals with a bile duct-ureter anastomosis and without disturbance due to obstruction or absorption, the total quantity of bile pigment output during a day under normal conditions varied from 0.0618 to 0.0678 gm. These figures are practically identical with those of Stadelmann (9, 10) but lower than those given by Hooper and Whipple (7), who find that the average bile pigment excretion amounts to about 1 mg. per pound of body weight per 6 hours.. 2. In all the experiments there is definite evidence of a decrease in bile pigment elimination after splenectomy. This is true not only of the elimination when no hemolytic agent is administered but also when excessive blood destruction is caused. Under the latter circumstances the amount of bile pigment is greatly increased but never reaches the high level of blood destruction before splenectomy.. 3. These observations appear to show conclusively that the absence of the spleen influences the formation of bile pigment. To what extent the ...
Using recently developed molecular-shape description algorithms, we searched the Available Chemical Directory for known compounds similar in shape to the potent HIV-1 protease inhibitor Merck L-700,417; 15 compounds most similar in shape to the inhibitor were selected for testing in vitro. Four of these inhibited the protease at 100 µM or less and the most active of the four were the naturally occurring pigments biliverdin and bilirubin. Biliverdin and bilirubin inhibited recombinant HIV-1 protease in vitro at pH 7.8 with Ki values of approx. 1 µM, and also inhibited HIV-2 and simian immunodeficiency virus proteases. The related pyrrolic pigments stercobilin, urobilin, biliverdin dimethyl ester and xanthobilirubic acid showed similar inhibitory activity at low micromolar concentrations. Biliverdin, bilirubin and xanthobilirubic acid did not inhibit viral polyprotein processing in cultured cells, but they reduced viral infectivity significantly. At 100 µM, xanthobilirubic acid affected viral ...

Explanation: Obstructive jaundice develops when a stone obstructs the flow of bile in the common bile duct. When the flow of bile to the duodenum is blocked, the lack of bile pigments results in a clay-colored stool. In obstructive jaundice, urine tends to be dark amber (not straw-colored) as a result of soluble bilirubin in the urine. Hematocrit levels arent affected by obstructive jaundice. Because obstructive jaundice prevents bilirubin from reaching the intestine (where its converted to urobilinogen), the urine contains no urobilinogen ...

For example, using 5mol% CuCI.phen, 200mol% K,CO,, benzene, S OT , and bubbling 0, through the reaction mixture, a 60 % conversion ofp-chlorobenzylalcoholinto p-chlorobenzaldehyde can be achieved. Allylic substrates gave much lower conversions (,30%) and aliphatic alcohols are virtually inert under these conditions. No reaction is observed with any of these substrates under anaerobic conditions, in the absence of the azo derivatives 3. 171 The intermediacy of complex 7 in the aeroblc oxidations was supported by the following observations: 1) independently generated hydrazido complex 7 (CuCI.phen/DBADH,/NaH) proved to be unreactive under anaerobic conditions; 2) passing 0, through the reaction mixture ...

In addition to the black pigment in the interstitium, there are frequent collections of alveolar macrophages filled with black pigment. The pigment is coarsely granular, and particles vary in size. It is not the light-brown pigment found in cigarette smokers, and no birefringent crystals, often seen in such smokers, were found with it. It did not have the coarse, refractile appearance of hemosiderin, and it did not stain with an iron stain. ...
Egg: This egg develops no distinguishing features; but always appears bright and glassy, the clear yolk separating it from several clupeiforms (DIIA1 & DIIA2) of similar size (A). The advanced embryo develops a line of fine black pigment spots down the body, only visible on a white background. Incubation is about 50-55 hours; the eggs in Plate A illustrate the 24-hour development difference. Larva: The early larva has an elongate gut and a myomere count in excess of 45 (B). Four blotches of black pigment, 3 pre-anal and 1 midtail, adorn the 3-4 day larva (C). B: NH, C: 3 days (24 C).. The only synodontid with a smooth-shelled egg listed by both Ikeda & Mito (1988) and Shao et. al. (2001), is S. elongata.

Schmorl noted that unless the specimens were preserved in formaldehyde, the color would disappear. A similar observation led Brodersen and Bartels14 to examine brain tissue for the possible presence of bilirubin oxidizing enzyme in the brain, concluding that such an enzyme was indeed present on the inner mitochondrial membrane of brain cells. Work in our group has since confirmed and expanded upon these observations.15-20 In the brains that Schmorl examined, the jaundiced nuclei were very sharply demarcated and, therefore, contrasted clearly with the color of the surrounding tissue. Because of this sharp demarcation and the predilection for staining of the nuclei, Schmorl proposed the term kernicterus. He further suggested that the yellow color was not simply attributable to saturation of the tissue with bile pigments, such as was the case (he believed) with eg, skin, but to binding of the bile pigments to specific structural elements in the tissue.. Microscopic examination of the tissue ...
Icterus (or jaundice) is defined as the clinical state in which hyperbilirubinemia is detectable as a yellowish discoloration of the plasma or soft tissues. Icterus results when the rate of bilirubin production exceeds its rate of elimination. The intensity and distribution of tissue bile pigment staining depends on 4 factors: 1) the total serum bilirubin concentration; 2) the form of bilirubin (unconjugated or conjugated); 3) capillary perfusion and the ability to detect a yellow hue through normal pink mucous membranes; and 4) tissue composition, i.e., tissue high in fat is predisposed to deposition of lipid soluble unconjugated bilirubin while tissue high in elastic fibers, such as sclera and skin, is predisposed to deposition of water soluble conjugated bilirubin.. BILIRUBIN METABOLISM. The bulk of bilirubin (approximately 80%) is produced as a result of the breakdown of senescent red cells. The remainder comes from catabolism of other pigments (e.g., cytochromes and catalases, particularly ...

Gallstones What are gallstones? Gallstones form when bile stored in the gallbladder hardens into stone-like material. Too much cholesterol, bile salts, or bilirubin (bile pigment) can cause gallstones. When gallstones are present in the gallbladder itself, it is called cholelithiasis. When gallstones are present in the bile ducts, it is called choledocholithiasis. Gallstones that obstruct bile ducts can lead to a severe or life-threatening infection of the bile ducts, pancreas, or liver. Bile ducts can ...
Bilirubin is a bile pigment that is a degradation product of heme. In particular, bilirubin is a yellow breakdown product of normal heme catabolism. Its levels are elevated in certain diseases and it is responsible for the yellow color of bruises. Bilirubin is an excretion product, and the body does not control levels. Bilirubin levels reflect the balance between production and excretion. Thus, there is no normal level of bilirubin. Bilirubin consists of an open chain of four pyrroles (tetrapyrrole); by contrast, the heme molecule is a closed ring of four pyrroles, called porphyrin. -- Wikipedia ...

Jaundice (also called icterus) is when the skin and the whites of the eyes become a yellow color.[1] People with jaundice have a problem with their liver, which stops it from removing dead red blood cells properly. These blood cells contain a chemical called bilirubin.[1] Bilirubin causes the yellow coloring of the skin. Jaundice is common in newly born babies. It usually starts the second day after birth.[2] Jaundice can also be caused by other diseases, like malaria, hepatitis, or gallstones. Jaundice is the most common of all liver problems. The yellow colour of the skin and mucous membranes happens because of an increase in the bile pigment, bilirubin, in the blood.[2] The bile, made by the liver, is a vital digestive fluid needed for proper nutrition. It also stops decaying changes in food. If the bile is stopped from entering the intestines there is an increase in gases and other products. Normally, the production of bile and its flow is constant. ...
Recall that lipids are hydrophobic, that is, they do not dissolve in water. Thus, before they can be digested in the watery environment of the small intestine, large lipid globules must be broken down into smaller lipid globules, a process called emulsification. Bile is a mixture secreted by the liver to accomplish the emulsification of lipids in the small intestine.. Hepatocytes secrete about one liter of bile each day. A yellow-brown or yellow-green alkaline solution (pH 7.6 to 8.6), bile is a mixture of water, bile salts, bile pigments, phospholipids (such as lecithin), electrolytes, cholesterol, and triglycerides. The components most critical to emulsification are bile salts and phospholipids, which have a nonpolar (hydrophobic) region as well as a polar (hydrophilic) region. The hydrophobic region interacts with the large lipid molecules, whereas the hydrophilic region interacts with the watery chyme in the intestine. This results in the large lipid globules being pulled apart into many ...

Increased serum levels of unconjugated bilirubin are associated with the development of brain damage in newborns. performance of the UnaG assay was unaffected by phototherapy and the presence of serum hemoglobin and lipid emulsion. These results demonstrate the clinical applicability of the UnaG method for direct measurement of unconjugated bilirubin levels in newborn serum. Kernicterus or bilirubin-induced neurologic dysfunction is a brain disorder caused by bilirubin neurotoxicity during the neonatal period1. Not only does this disease show worldwide prevalence, its incidence is increasing in developed countries due to the higher survival rates of extremely preterm infants2,3. Although assessment of total bilirubin (TB) levels in serum/plasma is the current gold standard for identifying newborns at risk of kernicterus4,5, TB level is not the most accurate indicator, because TB includes both unconjugated bilirubin and conjugated bilirubin. Of these NVP-AUY922 fractions, elevated serum level of ...

pFake Designer Bags E (extended black) is the most dominant allele of an autosomic locus which controls the extension of black to different parts of the plumage. These allele allows the extension of black pigment to the feathers of the whole plumage, producing solid black plumage. It is present not only in most solid black plumage breeds, but also in black barred breeds, such as Barred Rocks, in mottled breeds such as Ancona and some white breeds such as White Leghorns.[8] This mutation is epistatic to many other color patterns based on the recessive alleles of the locus E: Most crossings between solid black plumage fowls and fowls exhibiting other plumage patterns, give a solid black plumage offspring.[1] But E is also hypostatic to a type of white: Crossings between Black Australorps and White Leghorns, which are so popular in many countries to produce egg layers, give an offspring of nearly white plumage..

Vanadate oxidation The bilirubin is oxidized by vanadate at about pH 3 to produce biliverdin. In the presence of the detergent and the vanadate, both conjugated (direct) and unconjugated bilirubin are oxidized. This oxidation reaction causes the decrease in the optical density of the yellow color, which is specific to bilirubin. The decrease in optical density at 451 nm is proportional to the total bilirubin concentration in the sample.(Metoden tatt i bruk: 5/1-06 ...
Egg: This egg was only once encountered in a gelatinous cluster, and is far less common than ABHIIIA1. The egg is only slightly oval, and as the larva develops, the perivitelline space increases (A). The yolk is rough-surfaced, and the chorion has a green or red tinge. Incubation is about 30 hours. Larva: Newly hatched larvae have four white/yellow pigment spots, and blotchy black pigment, in the outer finfold (B), and a rough finfold surface (C). At 1 day, the two dorsal yellow pigment clusters move into the dorsal finfold (C). At 6 days the larva has black pigment above the gut and a patch on the notochord midway between anus and notochord tip, whilet the yellow pigment persists, but has paled to white (F). B: newly hatched, C: 1 day, D: 2 days, E: 3 days, F: 6 days.. This egg was not reared.

A bile acid test is a blood test taken after the dogs body has been deprived of dog food for a certain period of time, and then fed. Fasting essentially creates a clean slate in the bloodstream. An initial blood sample is taken, and then the patient is given a small amount of dog food and, two hours after finishing his meal, a second blood sample is taken. The two blood samples are compared to determine the efficiency of the liver in removing bile from the bloodstream. A bile acid test merely indicates if there is or is not a problem with the liver-it does not provide enough information to make a diagnosis. ...
