Phospholipid hydroperoxide cysteine peroxidase activity of human serum albumin. (1/2289)

Human serum albumin (HSA) reduced the phospholipid hydroperoxide, 1-palmitoyl-2-(13-hydroperoxy-cis-9, trans-11-octadecadienoyl)-l-3-phosphatidylcholine (PLPC-OOH) to the corresponding hydroxy-derivative with a high apparent affinity (Km=9. 23+/-0.95 microM). Removal of bound lipid during purification increased this activity. At physiological concentration, HSA reduced the phospholipid hydroperoxide in the absence of a cofactor. However, in the presence of a cofactor (reductant), the rate of the reaction was increased. All of the major aminothiols in plasma could act as reductants, the best being the most abundant, cysteine (Km=600+/-80 microM). For every nanomole of PLPC-OOH reduced by HSA, 1.26 nmol of cystine was formed, indicating a reaction stoichiometry of 1 mol PLPC-OOH to 2 mol cysteine. We used chemical modification to determine which amino acid residues on HSA were responsible for the activity. Oxidation of thiol group(s) by N-ethylmaleimide led to a reduction in the rate of activity, whereas reduction of thiols by either dithiothreitol or the angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor, captopril, increased the activity. Both N-ethylmaleimide-modified HSA and dithiothreitol-treated HSA exhibited increased apparent affinities for PLPC-OOH. For a range of preparations of albumin with different modifications, the activity on PLPC-OOH was dependent on the amount of free thiol groups on the albumin (correlation coefficient=0.91). Patients with lowered albumin concentrations after septic shock showed lowered total plasma thiol concentrations and decreased phospholipid hydroperoxide cysteine peroxidase (PHCPx) activities. These results therefore show for the first time that HSA exhibits PHCPx activity, and that the majority of the activity depends on the presence of reduced thiol group(s) on the albumin.  (+info)

Bilirubin, formed by activation of heme oxygenase-2, protects neurons against oxidative stress injury. (2/2289)

Heme oxygenase (HO) catalyzes the conversion of heme to carbon monoxide, iron, and biliverdin, which is immediately reduced to bilirubin (BR). Two HO active isozymes exist: HO1, an inducible heat shock protein, and HO2, which is constitutive and highly concentrated in neurons. We demonstrate a neuroprotective role for BR formed from HO2. Neurotoxicity elicited by hydrogen peroxide in hippocampal and cortical neuronal cultures is prevented by the phorbol ester, phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (PMA) via stimulation of protein kinase C. We observe phosphorylation of HO2 through the protein kinase C pathway with enhancement of HO2 catalytic activity and accumulation of BR in neuronal cultures. The neuroprotective effects of PMA are prevented by the HO inhibitor tin protoporphyrin IX and in cultures from mice with deletion of HO2 gene. Moreover, BR, an antioxidant, is neuroprotective at nanomolar concentrations.  (+info)

Genomic structure of the canalicular multispecific organic anion-transporter gene (MRP2/cMOAT) and mutations in the ATP-binding-cassette region in Dubin-Johnson syndrome. (3/2289)

Dubin-Johnson syndrome (DJS) is an autosomal recessive disease characterized by conjugated hyperbilirubinemia. Previous studies of the defects in the human canalicular multispecific organic anion transporter gene (MRP2/cMOAT) in patients with DJS have suggested that the gene defects are responsible for DJS. In this study, we determined the exon/intron structure of the human MRP2/cMOAT gene and further characterized mutations in patients with DJS. The human MRP2/cMOAT gene contains 32 exons, and it has a structure that is highly conserved with that of another ATP-binding-cassette gene, that for a multidrug resistance-associated protein. We then identified three mutations, including two novel ones. All mutations identified to date are in the cytoplasmic domain, which includes the two ATP-binding cassettes and the linker region, or adjacent putative transmembrane domain. Our results confirm that MRP2/cMOAT is the gene responsible for DJS. The finding that mutations are concentrated in the first ATP-binding-cassette domain strongly suggests that a disruption of this region is a critical route to loss of function.  (+info)

Soccer players under regular training show oxidative stress but an improved plasma antioxidant status. (4/2289)

Physical activity is known to induce oxidative stress in individuals subjected to intense exercise. In this study, we investigated the lipoprotein profile and the plasma antioxidant status in a group of soccer players engaged in a regular training programme. As was expected for aerobic exercise, high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C) and HDL3-C levels were significantly increased in the sportsmen (P<0.05). Total plasma antioxidant capacity was 25% higher in sportsmen than in controls (P<0.005). Accordingly, plasma hydrosoluble antioxidant levels (ascorbic acid and uric acid) were found to be significantly elevated in the soccer players (P<0.005). In addition, these subjects showed high concentrations of alpha-tocopherol in plasma compared with controls (P<0.005). Furthermore, an increase in plasma superoxide dismutase activity was also observed in relation to exercise (P<0.01). The elevation in plasma activities of antioxidant enzymes and the higher levels of free radical scavengers of low molecular mass may compensate the oxidative stress caused by physical activity. High levels of high-density lipoprotein in plasma may offer additional protection by inhibiting low-density lipoprotein oxidation and thus liposoluble antioxidant consumption. Therefore, soccer players under regular training show an improved plasma antioxidant status in comparison to sedentary controls.  (+info)

Functional heterogeneity of UDP-glucuronosyltransferase as indicated by its differential development and inducibility by glucocorticoids. Demonstration of two groups within the enzyme's activity towards twelve substrates. (5/2289)

1. UDP-glucuronosyltransferase activity towards 12 substrates has been assessed in rat liver during the perinatal period. 2. Between days 16 and 20 of gestation, enzyme activities towards the substrates 2-aminophenol, 2-aminobenzoate, 4-nitrophenol, 1-naphthol, 4-methylumbelliferone and 5-hydroxytryptamine (the 'late foetal' group) surge to reach adult values, while activities towards bilirubin, testosterone, beta-oestradiol, morphine, phenolphthalein, and chloramphenicol (the 'neonatal' group) remain negligible or at less than 10% of adult values. 3. By the second postnatal day, enzyme activities towards the neonatal group have attained, or approached adult values. 4. Dexamethasone precociously stimulates in 17-day foetal liver in utero transferase activities in the late foetal, but not the neonatal group. A similar inductive pattern is found for 15-day foetal liver in organ culture. 5. It is suggested that foetal glucocorticoids, whose synthesis markedly increases between days 16 and 20 of gestation, are responsibile for triggering the simultaneous surge of all the hepatic UDP-glucuronosyltransferase activities in the late foetal group. The neonatal group of activities apparently require a different or additional stimulus for their appearance. 6. The relationship of these two groups of transferase activities to other similar groups observed during induction by xenobiotics and enzyme purification is discussed.  (+info)

Role of bilirubin overproduction in revealing Gilbert's syndrome: is dyserythropoiesis an important factor? (6/2289)

Gilbert's syndrome was diagnosed in 37 patients with unconjugated hyperbilirubinaemia without overt haemolysis or structural liver abnormality, who had a marked reduction in hepatic bilirubin UDP-glucuronosyltransferase activity (B-GTA) (as compared with that of 23 normal subjects). No significant correlation existed in these patients between serum bilirubin level and the values of B-GTA, thus suggesting that factors other than a low B-GTA must influence the degree of hyperbilirubinaemia in Gilbert's syndrome. Studies of 51Cr erythrocyte survival and 59Fe kinetics in 10 unselected patients demonstrated slight haemolysis in eight, whereas mild ineffective erythropoiesis was suggested in all from a low 24-hour incorporation of radioactive iron into circulating red cells. This overproduction of bilirubin resulting from mild haemolysis and perhaps dyserythropoiesis might reflect only an extreme degree of the normal situation. It certainly contributes to the hyperbilirubinaemia of Gilbert's syndrome and may play a major role in the manifestation of this condition.  (+info)

Unconjugated bilirubin exhibits spontaneous diffusion through model lipid bilayers and native hepatocyte membranes. (7/2289)

The liver is responsible for the clearance and metabolism of unconjugated bilirubin, the hydrophobic end-product of heme catabolism. Although several putative bilirubin transporters have been described, it has been alternatively proposed that bilirubin enters the hepatocyte by passive diffusion through the plasma membrane. In order to elucidate the mechanism of bilirubin uptake, we measured the rate of bilirubin transmembrane diffusion (flip-flop) using stopped-flow fluorescence techniques. Unconjugated bilirubin rapidly diffuses through model phosphatidylcholine vesicles, with a first-order rate constant of 5.3 s-1 (t(1)/(2) = 130 ms). The flip-flop rate is independent of membrane cholesterol content, phospholipid acyl saturation, and lipid packing, consistent with thermodynamic analyses demonstrating minimal steric constraint to bilirubin transmembrane diffusion. The coincident decrease in pH of the entrapped vesicle volume supports a mechanism whereby the bilirubin molecule crosses the lipid bilayer as the uncharged diacid. Transport of bilirubin by native rat hepatocyte membranes exhibits kinetics comparable with that in model vesicles, suggesting that unconjugated bilirubin crosses cellular membranes by passive diffusion through the hydrophobic lipid core. In contrast, there is no demonstrable flip-flop of bilirubin diglucuronide or bilirubin ditaurate in phospholipid vesicles, yet these compounds rapidly traverse isolated rat hepatocyte membranes, confirming the presence of a facilitated uptake system(s) for hydrophilic bilirubin conjugates.  (+info)

Auxiliary partial orthotopic liver transplantation for Crigler-Najjar syndrome type I. (8/2289)

OBJECTIVE: To determine if auxiliary partial orthotopic liver transplantation (APOLT) has the long-term potential to correct the underlying abnormality in Crigler-Najjar syndrome type 1 (CNS1) without the need for total liver replacement. BACKGROUND: Orthotopic liver transplantation has been used successfully to replace the defective enzyme in CNS1. Experimental studies have shown that only 1% to 2% of the normal hepatocyte mass is needed for bilirubin conjugation. If APOLT corrects the underlying metabolic abnormality, it has the advantage of preserving the native liver, which would serve as a "safety net" should the graft fail, and there is the potential for gene therapy in the future with possible withdrawal of immunosuppression. METHODS: Seven APOLT procedures were performed in six recipients with CNS1. Median age at transplantation was 10.5 years. Six transplants were performed as a left auxiliary liver transplant, and one was performed as a right auxiliary liver transplant. Median serum bilirubin level at transplantation was 320 micromol/L. All patients required 12 to 16 hours of phototherapy daily before the transplant to maintain serum bilirubin levels between 250 and 350 micromol/L. RESULTS: Median serum bilirubin level was 50 micromol/L at day 5 after the transplant and 23 micromol/L at a median follow-up of 32 months. In four children, early severe acute rejection developed, requiring conversion to tacrolimus; one underwent a second transplant for chronic rejection and graft atrophy but died from lymphoproliferative disease 6 months after the second transplant. CONCLUSIONS: This report shows that APOLT is technically feasible and provides adequate hepatocyte mass to correct the underlying metabolic abnormality in CNS1.  (+info)

The bilirubin binding panel creates an analog expansion of the current "one size fits all" BTotal guidelines that are arbitrarily digitalized according to clinical status, birth weight, or gestational age.14,15 It also increases the vascular bilirubin variables available for studies attempting to link adverse outcomes with "brain bilirubin exposure."25-27,47 As with any clinical laboratory test, the bilirubin binding panel must be interpreted in the context of the clinical circumstances. Poor bilirubin binding will have little clinical impact if bilirubin accumulation is minimal,2 and excellent bilirubin binding may not prevent kernicterus when excessive bilirubin accumulation is present.29.

In a large nationally representative cohort, we found an independent association between increasing concentration of serum total bilirubin and decreasing prevalence of PAD. We did not find evidence that this association is dependent on bilirubin levels beyond the reference range, on the presence of liver disease, or on alcohol intake. These data, together with evidence from experimental atherosclerosis, are consistent with the hypothesis that bilirubin is an endogenous protectant mechanism against PAD.. Inflammation and oxidative stress are essential to the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis.9-11 Bilirubin is a antioxidant under physiological conditions and suppresses inflammation in the vasculature.1,7 Additionally, bilirubin functions as a cytoprotectant.6 These properties appear to allow bilirubin to inhibit multiple steps in atherogenesis.

Background: Although nondipper hypertension has been associated with increased cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, the relationship between bilirubin levels and nondipper hypertension remains unclear. Several studies have demonstrated that higher serum bilirubin levels inhibit inflammation and the proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells, which may suggest a relationship between serum bilirubin levels and cardiovascular disease. The aim of this study was to compare serum bilirubin levels between dipper and nondipper hypertensive patients. Methods: The present study included 80 hypertensive patients who were stratified into two groups: 50 dipper patients (mean [± SD] age 51.5 ± 8 years; 29 male) and 30 nondipper patients (mean age 50.6 ± 5.4 years; 17 male).

N2 - Bilirubin monoglucuronide is the major pigment in the human and rat bile. The dismutation of bilirubin monoglucuronide occurs at a normal rate in vitro in the liver of uridine diphosphate glucuronosyltransferase deficient man and rat. This chapter presents a procedure for the isolation of azopigmcnts. Preparations procedure involves the preparation of rat liver microsomes; the biosynthesis of bilirubin monoglucuronide; and the preparation of ethyl anthranilate diazo reagent. In the assay, the enzyme suspension is incubated with sodium phosphate at pH 6.6 containing glucaro-l,4-lactonc. Bilirubin monoglucuronide is dissolved in Tris-HCl at pH 7.8 and 0.05 ml is added to the enzyme-buffer mixture. After incubation at 37 ° for 3 min, the reaction is stopped with 2 ml ice-cold ethyl anthranilate diazo reagent. After incubation at 25 ° for 30min, 1ml of 20% ...
Objective. The management of nonhemolytic hyperbilirubinemia in term newborns is controversial. To evaluate the usefulness of serum unbound bilirubin concentrations (UBCs) in the management of hyperbilirubinemia, we compared the concentrations with abnormal auditory brainstem responses (ABRs).. Methods. ABRs and serum UBCs in 37 hyperbilirubinemic term newborns (total bilirubin concentrations [TBCs] ≥20 mg/dL and direct bilirubin concentrations ,2 mg/dL) were measured before treatment with either phototherapy or exchange transfusions. Eight of these newborns had blood incompatibilities. These hyperbilirubinemic newborns were divided into three groups according to the findings of ABR: group A, normal ABR (n = 18); group B, prolonged latency of wave I only (n = 8); and group C, prolonged interpeak latency of wave I-III/I-V and/or poor amplitude (n = 11).. Results. The peak TBC was significantly different between groups A and C (22.8 ± 2.2 mg/dL and 25.4 ± 2.5 mg/dL, respectively; P , .05), ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Bilirubin, renal hemodynamics, and blood pressure. AU - Stec, David E.. AU - Hosick, Peter A.. AU - Granger, Joey P.. PY - 2012/9/13. Y1 - 2012/9/13. N2 - Bilirubin is generated from the breakdown of heme by heme oxygenase and the reduction of biliverdin by the enzyme biliverdin reductase. Several large population studies have reported a significant inverse correlation between plasma bilirubin levels and the incidence of cardiovascular disease. Protection from cardiovascular disease is also observed in patients with Gilberts syndrome which is a disease characterized by mutations in hepatic UGT1A1, the enzyme responsible for the conjugation of bilirubin into the bile. Despite the strong correlation between plasma bilirubin levels and the protection from cardiovascular disease, the mechanism by which increases in plasma bilirubin acts to protect against cardiovascular disease is unknown. Since the chronic antihypertensive actions of bilirubin are likely due to its renal actions, ...
Cause of elevated bilirubin - What is the cause of elevated bilirubin in young man, more than 2 years? Bilirubin is 31 (norm |17)no gilbert syndrome Many possible causes.. . ranging from problems with the gallbladder or bile duct to liver problems to problems with metabolism. If you know that Gilbert syndrome is not present, you must have seen a physician about this in the past. If a diagnosis still has not been made, I would ask to see a hepatologist for more definitive testing. Good luck.
Category : CLINICAL CHEMISTRY. Test Name : BILIRUBIN (Direct, Indirect or Total). Description : A bilirubin test measures the amount of bilirubin in a blood sample. Bilirubin is a brownish yellow substance found in bile. It is produced when the liver breaks down old red blood cells. Bilirubin is then removed from the body through the stool (feces) and gives stool its normal brown color.. Bilirubin circulates in the bloodstream in two forms:. Indirect (or unconjugated) bilirubin. This form of bilirubin does not dissolve in water (it is insoluble). Indirect bilirubin travels through the bloodstream to the liver, where it is changed into a soluble form (direct or conjugated).. Direct (or conjugated) bilirubin. Direct bilirubin dissolves in water (it is soluble) and is made by the liver from indirect bilirubin.. Direct bilirubin dissolves in water (it is soluble) and is made by the liver from indirect bilirubin.. When bilirubin levels are high, the skin and sclera (white parts of the eye) may appear ...
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 ...

Helpful, trusted answers from doctors: Dr. Singh on direct to indirect bilirubin ratio: A relatively large portion of the population has something called gilberts, which is completely harmless, and causes elevated indirect bilirubin in times of stress or illness. If you are completely healthy and just have an elevated indirect bilirubin from time to time, it is almost certainly gilberts. Ask your doctor what he/she thinks.
At the 19th Annual Conference of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN), lymphoma expert and NCCN Panel Chair on Lymphoma, Andrew D. Zelenetz, MD, PhD, fielded questions from oncologists. The ASCO Post was there to capture his recommendations for a common clinical scenario-treating the elderly patient with elevated bilirubin. Dr. Zelenetz is Vice Chair of the Department of Medicine and former Chief of the Lymphoma Service at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, New York.. Clinical Scenario. The patient is an 80-year-old who presented with monoclonal gammopathy. At 3 months follow-up, he had weight loss and jaundice, with splenic and liver lesions, a bilirubin of 10 mg/dL and climbing, and an ejection fraction of 40%. The biopsy revealed large cell lymphoma that was CD20-positive. How would you treat this patient? "For the older patient with elevated bilirubin, you have a few good options, some of them rather surprising," Dr. Zelenetz said.. The obvious option, "which is easy," he ...
Bilirubin is one of the most commonly used tests to assess liver function. Approximately 85% of the total bilirubin produced is derived from the heme moiety of hemoglobin, while the remaining 15% is produced from RBC precursors destroyed in the bone marrow and from the catabolism of other heme-containing proteins. After production in peripheral tissues, bilirubin is rapidly taken up by hepatocytes where it is conjugated with glucuronic acid to produce bilirubin mono- and diglucuronide, which are then excreted in the bile.. A number of inherited and acquired diseases affect one or more of the steps involved in the production, uptake, storage, metabolism, and excretion of bilirubin. Bilirubinemia is frequently a direct result of these disturbances.. The most commonly occurring form of unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia is that seen in newborns and referred to as physiological jaundice.. The increased production of bilirubin, that accompanies the premature breakdown of erythrocytes and ineffective ...
Jaundice in the newborn Pale stools and a plasma conjugated bilirubin level greater than 30 ␮mol/l suggest the possibility of hepatitis or atresia of the bile ducts, and the advice of a paediatrician is needed. If there is a suspicion that the jaundice is related to breastfeeding, the other conditions causing jaundice should be excluded and the mother advised to continue breastfeeding. If the plasma bilirubin concentration is rising rapidly and breastfeeding is stopped for 48 hours, the infants plasma bilirubin concentration will fall abruptly and will not usually rise on return to breastfeeding. Although about 10% of mothers are colonised and about 25% of their infants acquire this organism, only one in 1000 infants has symptoms. About half of those with symptoms die. In the early onset type, which occurs in the first few days of life, there may be a persistently raised respiratory rate followed by the vague features of septicaemia and later peripheral cyanosis. The chest radiograph may show ...
Bilirubin diglucuronide is a conjugated form of bilirubin formed in bilirubin metabolism. The hydrophilic character of bilirubin diglucuronide enables it to be water-soluble. It is pumped across the hepatic canalicular membrane into the bile by the transporter MRP2. Lengyel, G.; et al. (2007-08-29).

What is the purpose of this test: Total bilirubin and conjugated bilirubin (direct) is measured to diagnose and monitor hepatobiliary disorders. How to prepare: A simple blood sample is taken. Dietary restrictions are not necessary. Target values: Total bilirubin: Conjugated bilirubin: 0 to 3.4 mcmol/L Newborns have higher levels of bilirubin, especially when they are premature. Associated tests: In most cases, conjugated hyperbilirubinemia is associated with abnormal liver function. A semi-quantitative measurement of bilirubinuria (presence of bilirubin in urine) is used to highlight conjugated hyperbilirubinemia and to closely monitor related disorders. - RemedysRx
We used an enzymatic method for measuring total bilirubin in serum. Results by this method varied linearly with bilirubin concentrations to at least 300 mg/L. The day-to-day precision (CV) of the method ranged from less than 1% to about 11% at bilirubin concentrations of 183 and 12 mg/L, respectively. Commonly used anticoagulants, serum preparation materials, and selected drugs had no effect on the apparent bilirubin concentration, but turbidity caused a slight increase and hemoglobin concentrations of 2 g/L resulted in lower values, by as much as 17 mg/L at a bilirubin concentration of 95 mg/L. Patients results obtained with this enzymatic method were slightly lower than those obtained with methods based on the Jendrassik-Grof principle. The largest differences, seen in samples with high "direct" bilirubin concentrations, can be decreased by measuring the absorbance at 425 nm instead of at 465 nm as recommended by the supplier of the bilirubin oxidase method.. ...
Bilirubin, resulting largely from the turnover of hemoglobin, is found in the plasma in two main forms: unconjugated or conjugated with glucuronic acid. Unconjugated bilirubin is transported into hepatocytes. There, it is glucuronidated by UGT1A1 and secreted into the bile canaliculi. We report a genome wide association scan in 4300 Sardinian individuals for total serum bilirubin levels. In addition to the two known loci previously involved in the regulation of bilirubin levels, UGT1A1 (P = 6.2 x 10-62) and G6PD (P = 2.5 x 10-8), we observed a strong association on chromosome 12 within the SLCO1B3 gene (P = 3.9 x 10-9). Our findings were replicated in an independent sample of 1860 Sardinians and in 832 subjects from the Old Order Amish (combined P , 5 x 10-14). We also show that SLC01B3 variants contribute to idiopathic mild unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia. Thus, SLC01B3 appears to be involved in the regulation of serum bilirubin levels in healthy individuals and in some bilirubin-related ...
My daughter was born 2 weeks before the expected delivery date. She weighed 3 kg. After a few days, I noticed a slight yellow colour in her skin. Phototherapy was done for half an hour but was discontinued as the doctor asked us to wait for the blood test result. Blood test revealed a bilirubin level of 15. After 2 days, phototherapy was done 4-5 times for 30 minutes each. |b|Blood test on the next day showed a bilirubin level of 23.5 and baby was shifted to NICU for continuous phototherapy|/b|. Her haemoglobin was 21 and her weight had come down to 2.6 kg from 3 kg. That night the yellow colour increased further. From one NICU staff I came to know that her bilirubin had reached 27 but I am not too sure. Hospital authorities say that they did not do blood transfusion as the baby was active and Hb was 21. Baby was sucking milk. But she slept off while sucking. Her bilirubin came down to 17.4. Now her bilirubin is 14.5. She is active now, sucking milk. There is a little bit of yellow colour in the body

Hemoglobin released from red blood cells is broken down into heme, and reduced to unconjugated (indirect) bilirubin which is then bound to serum albumin. Unconjugated bilirubin is converted to water-soluble conjugated (direct) bilirubin in the liver and stored in the gallbladder as bile. Bile is released into the intestines to assist in digestion and cholesterol metabolism as well as absorption of lipids and fat-soluble vitamins. Hyperbilirubinemia can be due to an increase in either unconjugated bilirubin or conjugated bilirubin levels. Conditions causing increased red blood cell destruction or decreased conjugation lead to unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia. Conditions that impair secretion of bile from liver or gallbladder result in conjugated hyperbilirubinemia. ...
The fixed phagocytic cells of the spleen and bone marrow destroy old red blood cells and convert the heme groups of hemoglobin to the pigment bilirubin. The bilirubin is secreted into the blood and carried to the liver where it is bonded to (conjugated with) glucuronic acid, a derivative of glucose. Some of the conjugated bilirubin is secreted into the blood and the rest is excreted in the bile as bile pigment that passes into the small intestine. The blood normally contains a small amount of free and conjugated bilirubin. Medical Tests Analyzer labtest bloodtest What does the test result mean?
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 ...

AIM To investigate the effect of anaesthetic agents on transcutaneous bilirubin levels during the first 24 h in neonates delivered by caesarean section. METHODS A total of 168 neonates delivered by caesarean section, during which sevoflurane was used for general anaesthesia (group A), bupivacaine for spinal anaesthesia (group B), levobupivacaine for epidural anaesthesia (group C) and 155 neonates delivered vaginally were included in the study. Transcutaneous bilirubin levels (TBLs) of infants were measured during the first 24 h and compared with each other. RESULTS The TBLs in neonates delivered vaginally were higher than those delivered by caesarean section, but the difference was not significant. TBLs were higher in groups A and C than in group B (p = 0.034, p = 0.011 respectively). TBLs were higher in group C than in group A, but the difference was not significant (p | 0.05). When the groups were compared with vaginal delivery group, TBLs in groups A and C were found higher (p = 0.03, p = 0.022
Bilirubin is the product that is formed from further breakdown of heme. As a waste product, bilirubin is secreted into bile and is also what gives urine its yellow color. Additionally, yellow bruises obtain their color also from bilirubin in a condition called jaundice. Since bilirubin is a breakdown from hemoglobin, it is generated in large quantities as red blood cells undergo turnover. Phagocytes then absorb the dead red blood cells where it is converted into free bilirubin and then released into plasma and eventually absorbed by liver cells. Finally, bacteria in the intestine metabolizes bilirubin where it is eliminated as urine or feces, which is also one of the reasons for its brown color.. ...
1. In all the cases of bilirubinaemia examined, whether the animals suffered from canine piroplasmosis or hepatic disturbances abnormal amounts of bilirubin were excreted in the urines. 2. Haemoglobin was frequently present in the urine of dogs suffering from piroplasmosis. The highest concentration of haemoglobin found was 799 mg. per 100 c.c. urine. No haemoglobin could be detected in the urines of dogs suffering from hepatic disturbances. 3. The plasma bilirubin of the piroplasmosis cases gave an indirect v. d. Bergh reaction whereas that of the hepatic disturbance cases gave the direct reaction with the v. d. Bergh reagent. The highest plasma bilirubin figure obtained was 53 v. d. Bergh units in a case of canine piroplasmosis. 4. In the piroplasmosis cases an increase in bilirubin was accompanied by a decrease in haemoglobin in the blood, whereas in the hepatic disturbance cases there was no decrease of the blood haemoglobin, the bilirubin in the plasma being due to retention and not to ...
Bilirubin is a strong antioxidant. Increased serum levels were associated with respiratory disease and mortality risk. We studied the association of bilirubin with lung function in the SAPALDIA cohort.Associations between natural logarithmized bilirubin and forced expiratory volume in the first second (FEV1), forced vital capacity (FVC), FEV1/FVC, and mean forced expiratory flow between 25%-75% of FVC (FEF25-75) were tested using multiple linear regression in the whole study population (n=4195) and strata of ever smoking and high body mass index (BMI, defined by the highest distribution quartile). Associations were retested with single nucleotide polymorphism rs6742078, a genetic determinant of bilirubin.High bilirubin levels were significantly associated with higher FEV1/FVC and FEF25-75 overall. Upon stratification, significant associations persisted in ever smokers, amounting to 1.1 percent (95%-confidence interval 0.1 to 2.2) increase in FEV1/FVC, and 116.2 mL·sec(-1) (-15.9 to 248.4) in ...
Bilirubin is a degradation product of haem, which is constantly formed in all. mammals. Increased levels of bilirubin in humans lead to jaundice, a condition. that is very common during the first days after birth. This neonatal. jaundice can routinely be treated by phototherapy without any serious side. effects. During this treatment, bilirubin undergoes a photoreaction to isomers. that can be excreted. The most efficient photoreaction is the isomerisation. around a double bond (Z-E-isomerisation), which results in more soluble. photoproducts.. The work presented in this thesis shows results of a femtosecond optical. spectroscopy study, combined with quantum-mechanical investigations, of. the mechanism of isomerisation of bilirubin. The spectroscopic research was. conducted with bilirubin in organic solvents, and in buffer complexed by. human serum albumin. This albumin complex is present in the blood, and. has thus medical importance. Quantum-chemical calculations (CASSCF) on. a bilirubin model ...
Measurement of the levels of bilirubin is used in the diagnosis and treatment of liver, hemolytic, hematologic, and metabolic disorders, including hepatitis and gall bladder obstruction. The assessment of direct bilirubin is helpful in the differentiation of hepatic disorders. The increase in total bilirubin associated with obstructive jaundice is primarily due to the direct (conjugated) fraction. Both direct and indirect bilirubin are increased in the serum with hepatitis. ...
A method is disclosed for determining the bilirubin concentration in the blood serum of a person from measurement of the spectral reflectance of the skin. The disclosed method detects the severity of jaundice, a common neonatal condition, and enables determination of the type of treatment regimen needed to prevent the bilirubin level from becoming sufficiently high to cause kernicterus which can result in brain damage. The method includes measuring the reflectance of the skin within a predetermined frequency spectrum, and more particularly at a number of specific wavelengths in the visible portion of the spectrum.

To get an adequate understanding of the problem of jaundice in neonates, to know a little about the metabolism of bilirubin in neonates. Bilirubin is a product that is toxic and must be issued by the body. Most of the bilirubin is derived from blood hemoglobin degradation and partly from the hem free or eritropoesis ineffective. Bilirubin formation was initiated by the oxidation process that produces biliverdin and several other substances. Biliverdin is reduced and this is a free bilirubin or bilirubin IX alpha. This substance is difficult to dissolve in water but soluble in fat, therefore had the difficult nature of the lipophilic and easily excreted through biological membranes such as the placenta and blood brain barrier. Free bilirubin is then fused with albumin and transported to the liver. In the hepatic uptake mechanism occurs, so that bilirubin is bound by the receptor liver cell membrane and into the liver cell. As soon as there is in the heart cells, occur persnyawaan with ligandin ...

A 31-year-old woman with 3 pregnancies, 1 live birth, and 1 abortion, and no past medical history, was followed for prenatal care at a family medicine unit. Routine follow-up and screening tests were provided, including a second-trimester ultrasound scan. All prenatal test results were normal and the pregnancy was uncomplicated.. Routine vaginal delivery occurred at 39 weeks and 2 days. The infant had Apgar scores of 9 at 1 and 5 minutes and a birth weight of 3.770 kg. At 36 hours of life, the baby was found to be mildly jaundiced, with a total serum bilirubin level of 195 μmol/L, below the threshold for intervention. Of note, the conjugated serum bilirubin level was 9 μmol/L, slightly above the normal range of 0 to 5 μmol/L used by the local laboratory. No follow-up was requested for this minimally elevated conjugated bilirubin level. Weight loss of 4.8% was noted 2 days after birth, but was believed to be within the normal range. The baby was ...
It is not at all uncommon for a healthy newborn to develop jaundice in the first several days of life. Bilirubin is produced when red blood cells are broken down. It is a yellow pigment that we all metabolize in the liver and then it is excreted in urine and stools. In an newborn, the body produces almost 2-3 times the bilirubin that an adult does. Because newborns are also "immature" their liver cannot keep up with the bilirubin production and therefore bilirubin levels rise. In some cases the bilirubin is high enough to cause a yellowing of the skin (jaundice), and this is termed physiologic jaundice of the newborn. Your infant will have their bilirubin level checked while they are in the hospital and your pediatrician will follow any bilirubin levels that seem to be rising. In most hospitals the bilirubin is tested transcutaneously (through the skin), and you may never know that you baby has been tested. If bilirubin levels seem to be high, a blood test will be performed to more accurately ...

Introduction: Genome-wide association studies have mapped loci that are associated with serum levels of bilirubin. Bilirubin is a major component of gallstones, so we investigated whether these variants predict gallstone bilirubin content and overall risk for gallstones.. Materials and methods: Loci that were identified in a meta-analysis to meet a genome-wide significance level of P,1.0 10-7 (UGT1A1, SLCO1B1, LST-3TM12, SLCO1A2) were analyzed in 1018 individuals with known gallstone composition. Gallstone risk was analyzed in 2606 German individuals that received operations for gallstone disease and 1121 controls and replicated in 210 cases and 496 controls from South America.. Results: Using the presence of bilirubin as a phenotype, variants rs6742078 (UGT1A1, P=0.003), rs4149056 (SLCO1B1, P=0.003), and rs4149000 (SLCO1A2, P=0.015) were associated with gallstone composition.

The presence of bilirubin in amniotic fluid, which results in a yellow color, is an indicator of fetal erythroblastosis. Visual inspection of amniotic fluid is unreliable because bilirubin is not the only cause of an excessive yellow color; therefore, the presence of bilirubin must be confirmed with spectrophotometric methods. Meconium may contribute a green color (biliverdin) that can obscure the color of bilirubin and hemoglobin.. ...

snapshot analysis. The most common adverse events occurring in at least 10 percent of patients in either arm of the study were diarrhea, nausea, upper respiratory infection, headache, fatigue and ocular icterus. The most common adverse events were similar across both treatment arms with the exception of ocular icterus (associated with elevated bilirubin levels), which was less frequent for the Quad arm than for the ATV/r plus Truvada arm of the study (1 and 14 percent, respectively). With the exception of elevated bilirubin levels among patients receiving atazanavir-based therapy, grade 3-4 laboratory abnormalities were similar for both treatment regimens, with only elevated creatine kinase occurring in more than 5 percent of patients (6 percent for the Quad and 7 percent for ATV/r plus Truvada). Lipid increases were comparable between study arms, with the exception of the higher triglyceride elevations observed among patients taking the atazanavir-based regimen (p=0.006). Both treatment ...
There are data showing no statistically significant difference in the pharmacokinetics (PK) of sorafenib in Child-Pugh A versus Child-Pugh B patients.[11] A phase I trial conducted in Japan also showed no substantial differences in the incidence of adverse events or clinically relevant differences in PK between the Child-Pugh A and B groups.[16] Overall, toxicity profiles for Child-Pugh B patients seem to be similar to or slightly worse than those for Child-Pugh A patients (see Table 2). However, toxicity reflecting worsening hepatic dysfunction, such as hyperbilirubinemia, encephalopathy, and ascites, appears to be to be greater in Child-Pugh B patients. Notably worsening bilirubin levels were reported in 40% of Child-Pugh B patients, compared with 18% of Child-Pugh A patients.[11] Nevertheless, because direct bilirubin levels were not reported, it is unclear if the rise in total bilirubin was related to sorafenib as a result of decreased bilirubin glucuronidation; this can increase indirect ...

Breakdown of haemoglobin leads to bilirubin which is bound to albumin in the circulation. In the liver it dissociates and free bilirubin enters the hepatic cell where it is conjugated by glucuronyl transferase with 2 molecules of uridine diphosphoglucuronic acid (UDPGA) to form bilirubin diglucuronide and UDP. The diglucuronide is more water soluble than free bilirubin..

Previously thought to be an "animal-only" pigment, bilirubin is best known as the yellowish hue associated with bruises and jaundice sufferers. In 2009 the FIU researchers found bilirubin in the arils of Strelitzia nicolai, the white Bird of Paradise tree. The incredible discovery-that bilirubin exists in both plants and animals-put Pirones research on the scientific map. The current study expands the original research and reveals new insights into the presence of animal pigment in flowers. Advisor David Lee credits Pirone for her persistence and scientific acumen. "Cary has made a remarkable discovery", he noted, adding that it was Pirones persistence and curiosity that persuaded colleagues that she was on the right track.. Strelitzia reginae Aiton, the Bird of Paradise plant, is known for its vibrant orange and blue inflorescences. Native to South Africa, it is widely cultivated in warm temperate and tropical regions. Aside from the widely recognized shape of its flower, which resembles the ...

In a prospective study of 196 consecutive single births a significant increase in serum bilirubin concentrations was found in infants born after low amniotomy induction and oxytocin infusion compared with those born spontaneously. This relationship was not dose-dependent and may have been associated with artificial interruption of pregnancy rather than the oxytocin itself. Infants delivered after spontaneous labour accelerated by oxytocin showed no such increase. The hormonal surge at the spontaneous onset of labour may affect fetal enzyme induction, but other factors, such as methods of infant feeding and oral contraceptive use, were found not to be significant. ...
Van den Bergh reaction is a chemical reaction used to measure bilirubin levels in blood. More specifically, it determines the amount of conjugated bilirubin in the blood. The reaction produces azobilirubin. Principle: bilirubin reacts with diazotised sulphanilic acid to produce purple coloured azo bilirubin.this reaction is highly useful in understanding the nature of jaundice. This was pioneered by the Dutch Physician, Abraham Albert Hijmans van den Bergh (1869-1943) of Utrecht. http://www.jbc.org/cgi/reprint/132/1/119.pdf 1939 "BILIRUBIN AND THE VAN DEN BERGH REACTION" (PDF).

Several neurodevelopmental follow up studies have failed to show an association between peak TSB levels and later adverse outcomes in VLBW neonates.37-42 Graziani and coworkers40 reported that bilirubinaemia in the range 2.3-22.5 mg/dl (39-382 μmol/l) was not related to the development of cerebral palsy or early developmental delay. Similarly, Macgregor and coworkers in a large cohort (n = 213) of extremely low birthweight (, 1000 g) neonates observed comparable TSB levels across (a) neurologically normal (mean serum bilirubin 8.9 mg/dl (151 μmol/l); range 4.1-25.3 mg/dl (70-430 μmol/l)), (b) neurologically equivocal (mean serum bilirubin 9.1 mg/dl (155 μmol/l); range 4.7-25.3 mg/dl (80-430 μmol/l)), (c) neurologically abnormal (mean serum bilirubin 9.1 mg/dl (155 μmol/l); range 2.7-19.9 (46-338 μmol/l)), and (d) the subset of abnormal infants with sensorineural hearing loss (mean serum bilirubin 9.0 mg/dl (153 μmol/l); range 5.9-12.7 mg/dl (100-216 μmol/l))41 and concluded that ...

Background. Cardiovascular diseases, including myocardial infarction and stroke, are the main reason of death in Sweden and Western Europe. High iron stores are believed to produce oxygen radicals, which is the presumed putative mechanism behind lipid peroxidation, atherosclerosis and subsequent cardiovascular disease. Iron levels are associated with the hemochromatosis associated HFE single nucleotide polymorphisms C282Y and H63D.. Bilirubin is an antioxidant present in relatively high levels in the human body. Several previous studies have found an association between high bilirubin levels and a lower risk for cardiovascular disease. Bilirubin levels are highly influenced by the common promoter polymorphism TA-insertion UGT1A1*28, the main reason for benign hyperbilirubinemia in Caucasians.. There is a lack of prospective studies on both the association of iron and bilirubin levels, and the risk for myocardial infarction and ischemic stroke.. Material and methods. Iron, transferrin iron ...

We report the molecular defect of albumin Herborn, a new genetic variant of human serum albumin which has been found in Germany. Isoelectric focusing analysis of CNBr fragments from the purified variant allowed us to localize the mutation in fragment CNBr 3 (residues 124-298). This fragment was isolated on a preparative scale and subjected to tryptic and V8 protease digestion. Sequence determination of the abnormal tryptic and V8 peptides revealed that the variant arises from the substitution Lys240→Glu. The -2 charge change of albumin Herborn, which is probably due to a A→G transition in the first position of the corresponding codon in the structural gene, has no significant effect on its electrophoretic mobility under non-denaturating conditions. Therefore we have assumed that residue 240, which has been implicated in the bilirubin primary binding site (Jacobsen, C. (1978) Biochem. J. 171, 453-459), is buried. The binding of bilirubin and biliverdin by albumin Herborn was quantified using ...

The majority of bilirubin (80%) is produced from the degradation of hemoglobin from erythrocytes undergoing normal (removal of aged or effete cells) or abnormal destruction (i.e. intravascular or extravascular hemolysis) within mononuclear phagocytes (principally splenic, hepatic and bone marrow macrophages). A small percentage (20%) is derived from the catabolism of various hepatic hemoproteins (myoglobin, cytochrome P450) as well as from the overproduction of heme from ineffective erythropoiesis in the bone marrow.. Within macrophages, a free heme group (iron + porphyrin ring) is oxidized by microsomal heme oxygenase into biliverdin and the iron is released (the iron is then stored as ferritin or released into plasma, where it is bound to the transport protein, transferrin). Biliverdin reductase then reduces the green water-soluble biliverdin into unconjugated (water-insoluble but lipid soluble) bilirubin. Heme oxygenase is also located in renal and hepatic parenchyma, enabling these tissues ...
Pancreatic cancer is particularly deadly because it remains asymptomatic until its too late. One early symptom is jaundice, a yellow-green discoloration of the skin and the whites of the eyes as the blood pigment bilirubin accumulates in the body. By the time enough bilirubin accumulates to be visible to the naked eye, things have generally progressed to the inoperable stage. BiliScreen captures images of the eyes and uses image analysis techniques to detect jaundice long before anyone would notice. To control lighting conditions, a 3D-printed mask similar to Googles Cardboard can be used; theres also a pair of glasses that look like something from Sir Elton Johns collection that can be used to correct for ambient lighting. Results look promising so far, with BiliScreen correctly identifying elevated bilirubin levels 90% of the time, as compared to later blood tests. T...

As Aaron and I transition to our new role as parents we are considering ourselves very lucky. Nolan is such a good baby. Nolan did have to go to the doctor several times this past week to have his bilirubin levels checked. The bilirubin levels indicate jaundice. At one point Nolans levels were at 18, when this happened we had to put him on bili-light which is a light that helps to break down the bilirubin in his blood. After the bili-light treatment his bilirubin levels have continued to go down. Today we had another check at the doctor and his level was down to 10, so the nurse said that jaundice is no longer a concern for Nolan. What a relief!. I am continuing to recover from the surgery. I felt very good the first few days, but it is starting to catch up with me now. I just have to remember to take it slow and nap when he is sleeping.. Nolan has been a very popular little guy with many visitors stopping by the house to snuggle him. It has been so nice seeing family and friends.. It has been ...
Many normal, healthy newborns have a yellowish tinge to their skin, which is known as jaundice. It is caused by a buildup of a chemical called bilirubin in the childs blood. This occurs most often when the immature liver has not yet begun to efficiently do its job of removing bilirubin from the bloodstream (bilirubin is formed from the bodys normal breakdown of red blood cells). While babies often have a mild case of jaundice, which is harmless, it can become a serious condition when bilirubin reaches what the pediatrician considers to be a very high level. Although jaundice is quite treatable, if the bilirubin level is very high and is not treated effectively, it can even lead to nervous system or brain damage in some cases, which is why the condition must be checked for and appropriately treated. Jaundice tends to be more common in newborns who are breastfeeding, most often in those who are not nursing well; breastfeeding mothers should nurse at least eight to twelve times per day, which ...

No new safety issues were identified, and the overall incidence of treatment-emergent adverse events during BMS AI424-044 was comparable across treatment groups. Grade 3 or 4 and serious adverse events were infrequent, occurring with a comparable incidence among treatment groups. The most frequent laboratory abnormality in BMS AI424-044 was elevated total bilirubin, predominantly of the indirect and unconjugated type. The incidence of grade 3 (2.6-5 times ULN) or grade 4 (>5 times ULN) elevations in total bilirubin was higher for patients who continued on atazanavir (atazanavir, 400 mg, 26%; atazanavir, 600 mg, 44%) than for patients who were switched from nelfinavir to atazanavir, 400 mg (13%). Grade 4 elevations in total bilirubin were transient and occurred in only 5 patients (atazanavir, 400 mg, 1 patient [1%]; atazanavir, 600 mg, 4 patients [3%]). Three of these patients, all in the atazanavir 600-mg treatment group, had grade 4 elevations and underwent a reduction in dose in accordance ...

The spitting up started before we left the hospital, but he had the high bilirubin levels (jaundice), and so I was nursing him and then syringe feeding him colostrum Id pumped before he was born (for that exact situation of high bilirubin levels and trying to avoid food allergies as with happened with Jack after wed supplemented with formula when he was born) so I thought maybe he was just being overfed. Once we had been home a few days, the spitting up turned into throwing up which turned into projectile vomiting 4 times over the weekend, and him screaming alot. Because of this he ended up on zantac. Well, zantac is not meant to stop the vomiting, just to help with the burn. And the liquid form of the med for kids is downright disgusting. We finally figured out that I had to pump once every few days just to be able to give his medicine. I put about 10ml of milk to put the med into in a bottle so he would actually get the full dose instead of spitting out half of it. He gets it every 6 hours. ...
Methods A total of 140 full-term normal newborns were enrolled in a prospective study at Siriraj Hospital. For each newborn, the serum bilirubin level was determined at age 24 h. The newborns were followed up for the development of severe hyperbilirubinemia until discharge. The cut-off point of the serum bilirubin level at 24 h was ,7.5 mg/dl. Sensitivity, specificity, positive and negative predictive values and accuracy of bilirubin levels at age 24 h in the diagnosis of severe neonatal hyperbilirubinemia were determined. ...
The influence of dietary composition on the unconjugated hyperbilirubinaemia of Gilberts syndrome was studied in 29 patients. After a period on a normal diet (10 MJ) an intravenous infusion of 40% glucose (8-4 MJ) together with a 1-6 MJ oral diet for two days resulted in an increment in plasma bilirubin concentration of 127 +/- 18% (mean +/- SEM) above the basal level. Both the administration of intravenous Intralipid 20% and the return to a normal diet caused a prompt reversal of this glucose effect. An increment of 135 +/- 10% in plasma bilirubin concentration was obtained when a standard "fasting" diet (1-6 MJ) was given for two days. When the lipid content of this "fasting" diet was increased from 33% to 85%, the rise in plasma bilirubin was only 49 +/- 19%. A 10 MJ oral diet for three days, which contained most of its energy content as carbohydrate and only 0-6% as lipid, produced a 76 +/- 12% increase in plasma bilirubin concentration. When the lipid content of the diet was increased to ...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Oral administration of ursodeoxycholic acid (UDCA) and cholesterol causes bile salt malabsorption; the former by competition for and the latter by down-regulation of ileal bile acid transporters. Because ileectomy in rats induces enterohepatic cycling of bilirubin, the hypothesis that dietary steroids might have the same effect was tested. METHODS: Male inbred C57L/J mice and Sprague-Dawley rats were fed low doses of UDCA, chenodeoxycholic acid (CDCA), or cholesterol added to laboratory chow with simultaneous chow-fed controls. After 1 week (mice) or 2 weeks (rats), indices of bile salt malabsorption and enterohepatic cycling of bilirubin were measured, including bilirubin secretion rates into bile, serum and intestinal bilirubin and bile salt levels, and urobilinogen levels in cecum, large intestine, and feces. RESULTS: Dietary UDCA and cholesterol, but not CDCA, significantly increased bilirubin secretion rates into bile. In UDCA-fed mice, gallbladder biles contained

Sarver R.W., Gao H., Tian F.. An NMR method was developed for determining binding sites of small molecules on human serum albumin (HSA) by competitive displacement of (13)C-labeled oleic acid. This method is based on the observation that in the crystal structure of HSA complexed with oleic acid, two principal drug-binding sites, Sudlows sites I (warfarin) and II (ibuprofen), are also occupied by fatty acids. In two-dimensional [(1)H,(13)C]heteronuclear single quantum coherence NMR spectra, seven distinct resonances were observed for the (13)C-methyl-labeled oleic acid as a result of its binding to HSA. Resonances corresponding to the major drug-binding sites were identified through competitive displacement of molecules that bind specifically to each site. Thus, binding of molecules to these sites can be followed by their displacement of oleic acids. Furthermore, the amount of bound ligand at each site can be determined from changes in resonance intensities. For molecules containing fluorine, ...
