The bioavailability, dispostion kinetics and dosage of sulphadimethoxine in dogs. (1/7831)

The disposition kinetics of sulphadimethoxine were studied in six normal beagle dogs after intravenous injection of a single dose (55 mg/kg). The median (range) distribution and elimination half times of the drug were 2.36 (2.06-3.35) hours and 13.10 (9.71-16.50) hours, respectively. Total body clearance of the drug had a median value of 21.7 ml/kg/h and a mean value of 21.4 ml/kg/h. While the overall tissue to plasma level ratio (k12/k21) of the drug was 0.55 after distribution equilibrium had been attained, analogue computer simulated curves showed that at 24 hours the fractions (percentage) of the dose in the central and tissue compartments were 12 and 11%, respectively. The drug was shown, by equilibrium dialysis method, to be highly bound to plasma proteins (greater than 75%) within the usual therapeutic range (50 to 150 mug/ml) of plasma levels. The systemic availability of sulphadimethoxine from the oral suspension was 32.8% (22.5-80.0). Since the absorption half time, 1.87 (0.86-3.22) hours, was considerably shorter than the half-life, 13.10 (9.71-16.50) hours, of the drug, the rate of absorption would have little influence on the dosage regimen. Based on the experimental data obtained, a satisfactory dosage regimen might consist of a priming dose of 55 mg/kg by the intravenous route and maintenance doses of either 27.5 mg/kg of sulphadimethoxine injection given intravenously or 55 mg/kg of the oral suspension administered at 24 hour intervals. The adequacy and duration of therapy will depend upon the clinical response obtained.  (+info)

UK-18892, a new aminoglycoside: an in vitro study. (2/7831)

UK-18892 is a new aminoglycoside antibiotic, a derivative of kanamycin A structurally related to amikacin. It was found to be active against a wide range of pathogenic bacteria, including many gentamicin-resistant strains. The spectrum and degree of activity of UK-18892 were similar to those of amikacin, and differences were relatively minor. UK-18892 was about twice as active as amikacin against gentamicin-susceptible strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Both amikacin and UK-18892 were equally active against gentamicin-resistant strains of P. aeruginosa. There were no appreciable differences in the activity of UK-18892 and amikacin against Enterobacteriaceae and Staphylococcus aureus. Cross-resistance between these two antimicrobials was also apparent.  (+info)

A cell-surface superoxide dismutase is a binding protein for peroxinectin, a cell-adhesive peroxidase in crayfish. (3/7831)

Peroxinectin, a cell-adhesive peroxidase (homologous to human myeloperoxidase), from the crayfish Pacifastacus leniusculus, was shown by immuno-fluorescence to bind to the surface of crayfish blood cells (haemocytes). In order to identify a cell surface receptor for peroxinectin, labelled peroxinectin was incubated with a blot of haemocyte membrane proteins. It was found to specifically bind two bands of 230 and 90 kDa; this binding was decreased in the presence of unlabelled peroxinectin. Purified 230/90 kDa complex also bound peroxinectin in the same assay. In addition, the 230 kDa band binds the crayfish beta-1,3-glucan-binding protein. The 230 kDa band could be reduced to 90 kDa, thus showing that the 230 kDa is a multimer of 90 kDa units. The peroxinectin-binding protein was cloned from a haemocyte cDNA library, using immuno-screening or polymerase chain reaction based on partial amino acid sequence of the purified protein. It has a signal sequence, a domain homologous to CuZn-containing superoxide dismutases, and a basic, proline-rich, C-terminal tail, but no membrane-spanning segment. In accordance, the 90 and 230 kDa bands had superoxide dismutase activity. Immuno-fluorescence of non-permeabilized haemocytes with affinity-purified antibodies confirmed that the crayfish CuZn-superoxide dismutase is localized at the cell surface; it could be released from the membrane with high salt. It was thus concluded that the peroxinectin-binding protein is an extracellular SOD (EC-SOD) and a peripheral membrane protein, presumably kept at the cell surface via ionic interaction with its C-terminal region. This interaction with a peroxidase seems to be a novel function for an SOD. The binding of the cell surface SOD to the cell-adhesive/opsonic peroxinectin may mediate, or regulate, cell adhesion and phagocytosis; it may also be important for efficient localized production of microbicidal substances.  (+info)

Absorption, metabolism, and excretion of 14C-temozolomide following oral administration to patients with advanced cancer. (4/7831)

The purpose of this study is to characterize the absorption, metabolism, and excretion of carbon 14-labeled temozolomide (14C-TMZ) administered p.o. to adult patients with advanced solid malignancies. On day 1 of cycle 1, six patients received a single oral 200-mg dose of 14C-TMZ (70.2 microCi). Whole blood, plasma, urine, and feces were collected from days 1-8 and on day 14 of cycle 1. Total radioactivity was measured in all samples. TMZ, 5-(3-methyltriazen-1-yl)imidazole-4-carboxamide (MTIC), and 4-amino-5-imidazole-carboxamide (AIC) concentrations were determined in plasma, and urine and plasma samples were profiled for metabolite/degradation products. Maximum TMZ plasma concentrations were achieved between 0.33 to 2 h (mean, 1.2 h), and half-life, apparent volume of distribution, and oral clearance values averaged 1.9 h, 17 liters/m2, and 104 ml/min/m2, respectively. A first-order absorption, one-compartment linear model, which included first-order formation of MTIC from TMZ and elimination of MTIC via degradation to AIC, and a peripheral distribution compartment for AIC, adequately described the plasma TMZ, MTIC, and AIC concentrations. MTIC systemic clearance was estimated to be 5384 ml/min/m2, and the half-life was calculated to be 2.5 min. Metabolite profiles of plasma at 1 and 4 h after treatment showed that 14C-derived radioactivity was primarily associated with TMZ, and a smaller amount was attributed to AIC. Profiles of urine samples from 0-24 h revealed that 14C-TMZ-derived urinary radioactivity was primarily associated with unchanged drug (5.6%), AIC (12%), or 3-methyl-2,3-dihydro-4-oxoimidazo[5,1-d]tetrazine-8-carboxyl ic acid (2.3%). The recovered radioactive dose (39%) was principally eliminated in the urine (38%), and a small amount (0.8%) was excreted in the feces. TMZ exhibits rapid oral absorption and high systemic availability. The primary elimination pathway for TMZ is by pH-dependent degradation to MTIC and further degradation to AIC. Incomplete recovery of radioactivity may be explained by the incorporation of AIC into nucleic acids.  (+info)

The crayfish plasma clotting protein: a vitellogenin-related protein responsible for clot formation in crustacean blood. (5/7831)

Coagulation in crayfish blood is based on the transglutaminase-mediated crosslinking of a specific plasma clotting protein. Here we report the cloning of the subunit of this clotting protein from a crayfish hepatopancreas cDNA library. The ORF encodes a protein of 1,721 amino acids, including a signal peptide of 15 amino acids. Sequence analysis reveals that the clotting protein is homologous to vitellogenins, which are proteins found in vitellogenic females of egg-laying animals. The clotting protein and vitellogenins are all lipoproteins and share a limited sequence similarity to certain other lipoproteins (e.g., mammalian apolipoprotein B and microsomal triglyceride transfer protein) and contain a stretch with similarity to the D domain of mammalian von Willebrand factor. The crayfish clotting protein is present in both sexes, unlike the female-specific vitellogenins. Electron microscopy was used to visualize individual clotting protein molecules and to study the transglutaminase-mediated clotting reaction. In the presence of an endogenous transglutaminase, the purified clotting protein molecules rapidly assemble into long, flexible chains that occasionally branch.  (+info)

Cryptocyanin, a crustacean molting protein: evolutionary link with arthropod hemocyanins and insect hexamerins. (6/7831)

Cryptocyanin, a copper-free hexameric protein in crab (Cancer magister) hemolymph, has been characterized and the amino acid sequence has been deduced from its cDNA. It is markedly similar in sequence, size, and structure to hemocyanin, the copper-containing oxygen-transport protein found in many arthropods. Cryptocyanin does not bind oxygen, however, and lacks three of the six highly conserved copper-binding histidine residues of hemocyanin. Cryptocyanin has no phenoloxidase activity, although a phenoloxidase is present in the hemolymph. The concentration of cryptocyanin in the hemolymph is closely coordinated with the molt cycle and reaches levels higher than hemocyanin during premolt. Cryptocyanin resembles insect hexamerins in the lack of copper, molt cycle patterns of biosynthesis, and potential contributions to the new exoskeleton. Phylogenetic analysis of sequence similarities between cryptocyanin and other members of the hemocyanin gene family shows that cryptocyanin is closely associated with crustacean hemocyanins and suggests that cryptocyanin arose as a result of a hemocyanin gene duplication. The presence of both hemocyanin and cryptocyanin in one animal provides an example of how insect hexamerins might have evolved from hemocyanin. Our results suggest that multiple members of the hemocyanin gene family-hemocyanin, cryptocyanin, phenoloxidase, and hexamerins-may participate in two vital functions of molting animals, oxygen binding and molting. Cryptocyanin may provide important molecular data to further investigate evolutionary relationships among all molting animals.  (+info)

Quantitative prediction of metabolic inhibition of midazolam by itraconazole and ketoconazole in rats: implication of concentrative uptake of inhibitors into liver. (7/7831)

To evaluate the extent of drug-drug interaction concerning metabolic inhibition in the liver quantitatively, we tried to predict the plasma concentration increasing ratio of midazolam (MDZ) by itraconazole (ITZ) or ketoconazole (KTZ) in rats. MDZ was administered at a dose of 10 mg/kg through the portal vein at 60 min after bolus administration of 20 mg/kg ITZ or during 0.33 mg/h/body of KTZ infusion. The ratio values in the area under the plasma concentration curve of MDZ in the presence of ITZ and KTZ was 2.14 and 1.67, respectively. The liver-unbound concentration to plasma-unbound concentration ratios of ITZ and KTZ were 11 approximately 14 and 1.3, respectively, suggesting a concentrative uptake of both drugs into the liver. ITZ and KTZ competitively inhibited the oxidative metabolism of MDZ in rat liver microsomes, and Ki values of ITZ and KTZ were 0.23 microM and 0.16 microM, respectively. We predicted the ratio values of MDZ in the presence of ITZ and KTZ, using Ki values and unbound concentrations of both drugs in the plasma or liver. The predicted ratio values in the presence of ITZ or KTZ calculated by using unbound concentration in the plasma were 1.03 approximately 1.05 and 1.39, whereas those calculated using unbound concentration in the liver were 1.73 approximately 1.97 and 1.51, respectively, which were very close to the observed ratio values. These findings indicated the necessity to consider the concentrative uptake of inhibitors into the liver for the quantitative prediction of the drug-drug interactions concerning metabolic inhibition in the liver.  (+info)

Airway inflammatory response to ozone in subjects with different asthma severity. (8/7831)

The aim of this study was to evaluate whether ozone exposure induces a similar airway inflammatory response in subjects with different degrees of asthma severity. Two groups of asthmatic subjects were studied: seven with intermittent mild asthma not requiring regular treatment (group A); and seven with persistent mild asthma requiring regular treatment with inhaled corticosteroids and long-acting beta2-agonists (group B). All subjects were exposed, in a randomized cross-over design, to air or O3 (0.26 parts per million (ppm) for 2 h with intermittent exercise); subjects in group B withdrew from regular treatment 72 h before each exposure. Before the exposure, and 1 and 2 h after the beginning of the exposure they performed a pulmonary function test, and a questionnaire was completed to obtain a total symptom score (TSS). Six hours after the end of the exposure, hypertonic saline (HS) sputum induction was conducted. Sputum cell percentages, eosinophil cationic protein (ECP) and interleukin (IL)-8 concentrations in the sputum supernatant were measured. TSS significantly increased and forced vital capacity (FVC) and forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) significantly decreased after O3 exposure in comparison with air exposure in group A, whereas no changes were observed in group B except for a significant decrement of FEV1 2 h after the beginning of O3 exposure. Sputum neutrophil percentage was significantly higher after O3 exposure than after air exposure in both groups (Group A: 70.2% (28-87) versus 26.6% (8.6-73.2); Group B: 62.1% (25-82.4) versus 27.9% (14.4-54)). IL-8 was higher in sputum supernatant collected 6 h after O3 exposure than after air, only in group A. No change due to O3 has been found in sputum eosinophil percentage and ECP concentration in both groups. In conclusion, the degree of airway response to a short-term exposure to ozone is different in subjects with asthma of different severity. The available data do not allow elucidation of whether this difference depends on the severity of the disease or on the regular anti-inflammatory treatment.  (+info)

Blood proteins, also termed plasma proteins or serum proteins, are proteins present in blood plasma. They serve many different functions, including transport of lipids, hormones, vitamins and minerals in activity and functioning of the immune system. Other blood proteins act as enzymes, complement components, protease inhibitors or kinin precursors. Contrary to popular belief, haemoglobin is not a blood protein, as it is carried within red blood cells, rather than in the blood serum. Serum albumin accounts for 55% of blood proteins, and is a major contributor to maintaining the osmotic pressure of plasma to assist in the transport of lipids and steroid hormones. Globulins make up 38% of blood proteins and transport ions, hormones, and lipids assisting in immune function. Fibrinogen comprises 7% of blood proteins; conversion of fibrinogen to insoluble fibrin is essential for blood clotting. The remainder of the plasma proteins (1%) are regulatory proteins, such as enzymes, proenzymes, and ...
High blood protein (hyperproteinemia) is an increase in the concentration of protein in the bloodstream. High blood protein is not a specific disease or condition in itself, but it might indicate you have a disease.. High blood protein rarely causes signs or symptoms on its own.

In this article the importance of blood proteins for drug dosing regimes is discussed. A simple mathematical model is presented for estimating recommended drug doses when the concentration of blood proteins is decreased. Practical guidance for drug dosing regimes is discussed and given in the form of a figure. It is demonstrated that correction of drug dosing regimes is needed only for when there is a high level of drug conjugation with blood proteins and a high degree of hypoalbuminaemia. An example of the use of this model is given.

We have tabulated the 77 currently known mutations of the familiar human blood protein, serum albumin (ALB). A total of 65 mutations result in bisalbuminemia. Physiological and structural effects of these mutations are included where observed. Most of the changes are benign. The majority of them were detected upon clinical electrophoretic studies, as a result of a point mutation of a charged amino acid residue. Three were discovered by their strong binding of thyroxine or triiodothyronine. A total of 12 of the tabulated mutations result in analbuminemia, defined as a serum albumin concentration of ,1 g/L. These were generally detected upon finding a low albumin concentration in patients with mild edema, and involve either splicing errors negating translation or premature stop codons producing truncated albumin molecules. A total of nine mutations, five of those with analbuminemia and four resulting in variants modified near the C-terminal end, cause frameshifts. Allotypes from three of the point ...
Background: The immense diagnostic potential of human plasma has prompted great interest and effort in cataloging its contents, exemplified by the Human Proteome Organization (HUPO) Plasma Proteome Project (PPP) pilot project. Due to challenges in obtaining a reliable blood plasma protein list, HUPO later re-analysed their own original dataset with a more stringent statistical treatment that resulted in a much reduced list of high confidence (at least 95%) proteins compared with their original findings. In order to facilitate the discovery of novel biomarkers in the future and to realize the full diagnostic potential of blood plasma, we feel that there is still a need for an ultra-high confidence reference list (at least 99% confidence) of blood plasma proteins. Methods: To address the complexity and dynamic protein concentration range of the plasma proteome, we employed a linear ion-trap-Fourier transform (LTQ-FT) and a linear ion trap-Orbitrap (LTQ-Orbitrap) for mass spectrometry (MS) ...

Semantic Scholar extracted view of Evolution of the immunologic species specificity of human serum proteins. by Masha Goodman
1. Hemoglobins and serum proteins of herring have been analyzed by agar gel electrophoresis (hemoglobins) and combined starch and agar gel electrophoresis (serum proteins). The material comprises twelve samples from the Norwegian coast and the North Sea and one sample from the east coast of Canada, a total of 1,546 specimens. 2. The results of the hemoglobin analyses were in general agreement with the ontogenetic variation described by WILKINS and ILES (1966). 3. Intraspecific variation was noted in the transferrin components. Three common transferrin types were found and assumed to be controlled by two allelomorphic genes. No relation to age or length was found. Presence of additional weak components complicated the type determination. Hemoglobins in the sera as well as prolonged storage made the type determination unreliable. 4. Observed albumin variations could be explained assuming control by two alleles, while observed variations in other serum protein groups were too weak or too diffuse ...

Proteinuria in normal dogs can be produced at will by parenteral injections of dog plasma.. As the plasma injections are continued the plasma protein concentration rises and at some point protein begins to appear in the urine. The level of plasma protein concentration at which proteinuria appears in normal dogs ranges from 9.6 to 10.4 gm. per cent. This may be termed the renal threshold for proteinuria. Repeat experiments in the same dog show threshold levels to be practically identical.. An interval of days (4 to 26 days) has been noted between the start of plasma protein injections and the appearance of the proteinuria. Larger doses of plasma shorten this interval and the critical plasma protein level is attained sooner.. Considerable amounts of protein may appear in the urine-298 gm. protein during a 52 day period in one instance studied-yet the urine clears in 1 to 4 days after cessation of protein injections. Autopsy shows undamaged kidneys.. Maximal levels of plasma protein concentration ...

The amyloid plaques that form between the brains neurons as it ages are toxic and hence cause the cognitive losses associated with Alzheimers.. We have, for the first time, demonstrated that the cytotoxic effects of amyloid beta can be prevented by fibrinogen in a dose-dependent manner. Fibrinogen acts as a shield or antidote against its toxicity, lead scientist of the study Debabrata Dash from Banaras Hindu University (BHU), told IANS on Thursday.. Dash said the toxic effects of amyloid beta on blood platelets as well as on neuronal cells can be significantly reduced by pre-treatment with fibrinogen.. As fibrinogen is already known to bind amyloid beta, it can capture or sequester amyloid beta and prevent the latter from interacting with neuronal cells or platelets, he said.. There is a catch. Fibrinogen does not cross blood-brain barrier (BBB) so this rules out the possibility of the protein gaining entry into brain and capturing the rogue amyloid beta peptides.. But peptides or small ...

Left: Platelets (shown in the left drawing as grey circles) circulate in blood in a resting state and do not interact with blood proteins. Middle: Adsorption of blood proteins to the biomaterial surface is thought to alter their conformation.. Right: Adsorbed proteins are then thought to activate platelets.. Platelet activation leads to changes in their shape and size, secretion of granules and consequent expression of granule markers (CD62P and CD63), activation of the GPIIb/IIIa integrin complex, exposure of phosphatidyl serine (PS) , which catalyzes thrombin production. Thrombin activates fibrin which polymerizes to form the clot. When activated, platelets also secrete over 200 active substances - growth factors and cytokines - with various, sometimes contradictory functions.[4] Understanding how the secretion of these factors is regulated would allow the regenerative potential of the platelets to be harnessed.. ...

Autoimmunity and macrophage recruitment into the central nervous system (CNS) are critical determinants of neuroinflammatory diseases. However, the mechanisms that drive immunological responses targeted to the CNS remain largely unknown. Here we show that fibrinogen, a central blood coagulation protein deposited in the CNS after blood-brain barrier disruption, induces encephalitogenic adaptive immune responses and peripheral macrophage recruitment into the CNS leading to demyelination. Fibrinogen stimulates a unique transcriptional signature in CD11b(+) antigen-presenting cells inducing the recruitment and local CNS activation of myelin antigen-specific Th1 cells. Fibrinogen depletion reduces Th1 cells in themultiple sclerosis model, experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis. Major histocompatibility complex (MHC) II-dependent antigen presentation, CXCL10- and CCL2-mediated recruitment of T cells and macrophages, respectively, are required for fibrinogen-induced encephalomyelitis. Inhibition of ...
Human Serum Albumin (HSA) is a protein commonly used in vaccines and often administered for serious burn injuries and liver disease and commonly in short supply due to a lack of donors. That's why researchers from Wuhan University have figured out how to grow it-not in people, but in rice.
By using a chemical procedure in which surfactant molecules, a form of wetting agent, are attached to the protein surface, the researchers remove the water by freeze-drying at low temperature to produce a solid powder. When warmed to room temperature, the powder melts to produce a viscous liquid that contains a very high concentration of myoglobin molecules, while the protein structure remains unchanged even though no water is present.. The experiments, carried out by Professor Stephen Mann, Dr Adam Perriman and Alex Brogan and colleagues in the School of Chemistry at the University of Bristol, and reported in the prestigious journal Nature Chemistry, found that the ability of the liquid protein to reversibly bind oxygen remains unchanged, which means that the potency of the oxygen molecules can be varied in response to the pressure applied.. The resulting liquid is a simplified form of artificial blood that might be used as a smart solvent-less fluid of highly concentrated protein for oxygen ...
In NIH-supported study, blood test in symptom-free volunteers links levels of specific protein with beta amyloid deposits. Scientists are seeking ways to detect the earliest stages of Alzheimers disease, since harmful changes may be taking place in the brain years before symptoms appear. Now, researchers report that a blood test detecting a specific protein in blood samples from cognitively normal older people may reflect the levels of beta-amyloid protein in the brain - a hallmark of the disease. Supported in part by the National Institutes of Health, the findings may eventually lead to a blood test that helps predict risk for Alzheimers disease and who may be a good candidate for participating in clinical trials ...

Years before symptoms of Alzheimers disease manifest, the brain starts changing and neurons are slowly degraded. Scientists at the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE), the Hertie Institute for Clinical Brain Research (HIH) and the University Hospital Tuebingen now show that a protein found in the blood can be used to precisely monitor disease progression long before first clinical signs appear. This blood marker offers new possibilities for testing therapies. The study was carried out in cooperation with an international research team and published in the journal Nature Medicine.. The fact that there is still no effective treatment for Alzheimers is partly because current therapies start much too late, says Mathias Jucker, a senior researcher at the DZNEs Tuebingen site and at the HIH. He headed the current study. In order to develop better treatments, scientists therefore need reliable methods to monitor and predict the course of the disease before symptoms such as memory ...

Over ten years, nearly 24,000 children of LSS survivors or controls were screened for electrophoretic variants of 30 blood proteins (Table 1); 10,000 of these children were also tested for enzyme-deficient variants (Table 2). The children were classified into two groups according to the combined parental gonadal dose of each child, either 0.01 Gy or greater (exposed group) or below 0.01 Gy (control group). A total of 1,233 electrophoretic variants and 47 enzyme-deficient variants were detected. Studies of parents showed that most variants were pre-existing and that only six electrophoretic variants and one enzyme-deficient variant originated from new mutations in parental germ cells. In the study of electrophoretic variants, two new mutations were detected in the exposed group and four in controls. The only enzyme-deficient mutant found was in the exposed group ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Immunochemical analysis of sulfonamide drug allergy. T2 - Identification of sulfamethoxazole-substituted human serum proteins. AU - Meekins, Carlos V.. AU - Sullivan, Timothy J.. AU - Gruchalla, Rebecca S.. PY - 1994/12. Y1 - 1994/12. N2 - Background: Sulfonamides undergo oxidative metabolism to yield reactive metabolites that haptenate proteins readily. Although it has been shown that sulfonamide metabolites bind covalently to murine microsomes, sulfonamide-conjugated serum proteins have not been analyzed in the peripheral blood of treated individuals.Objective: We hypothesized that during treatment with sulfamethoxazole, intracellular proteins are haptenated by drug metabolites, and some of these are destined for secretion into the serum.Methods: Using antibodies specific for sulfamethoxazole and an alkaline phosphatase immunoblotting technique, we attempted to demonstrate the presence of sulfamethoxazole-substituted proteins in the serum of individuals during a course of ...
Blood accessible biomarkers to assess disease activity and their response to therapies in Juvenile Dermatomyositis (JDM) are urgently needed. This pilot study aims to identify serum protein biomarkers associated with clinical disease activity in untreated JDM and their response to medical therapy. SomaScan® technology screened JDM patients for 1305 proteins at three points: 1) before start of treatment, 2) while on therapy, and 3) after treatment tapering when patients were clinically inactive. To define disease associated biomarkers, SomaScan® data from untreated JDM patients (n = 8) were compared to SomaScan® data from an independent age-matched healthy control group (n = 12). Longitudinal analysis defined treatment responsive proteins at three time points: untreated (7 samples), treated (7 samples), and clinically inactive (6 samples). To confirm the SomaScan® data, a subset of nine candidate proteins (CXCL11, IL-17B, IL-17D, IL-22, CXCL10, MCP-1, ANGPT2, MIF, IL-23) were tested by ELISA after
Analysis of human serum proteins by liquid phase isoelectric focusing and matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization-mass spectrometry.
Bacterial lipopolysaccharides (endotoxins) show strong biological effects at very low concentrations in human beings and many animals when entering the blood stream. These include affecting structure and function of organs and cells, changing metabolic functions, raising body temperature, triggering the coagulation cascade, modifying hemodynamics and causing septic shock. Because of this toxicity, the removal of even minute amounts is essential for safe parenteral administration of drugs and also for septic shock patients care. The absence of a general method for endotoxin removal from liquid interfaces urgently requires finding new methods and materials to overcome this gap. Nanostructured carbonized plant parts is a promising material that showed good adsorption properties due to its vast pore network and high surface area. The aim of this study was comparative measurement of endotoxin- and blood proteins-related adsorption rate and adsorption capacity for different carboneous materials produced at

alpha-2-HS-glycoprotein (AHSG) also known as fetuin-A is a protein that in humans is encoded by the AHSG gene. Fetuin-A belongs to the fetuin class of plasma binding proteins and is more abundant in fetal than adult blood. Alpha2-HS glycoprotein, a glycoprotein present in the serum, is synthesized by hepatocytes. The AHSG molecule consists of two polypeptide chains, which are both cleaved from a proprotein encoded from a single mRNA. It is involved in several functions, such as endocytosis, brain development and the formation of bone tissue. The protein is commonly present in the cortical plate of the immature cerebral cortex and bone marrow hemopoietic matrix, and it has therefore been postulated that it participates in the development of the tissues. However, its exact significance is still obscure. The choroid plexus is an established extrahepatic expression site. The mature circulating AHSG molecule consists of two polypeptide chains, which are both cleaved from a proprotein encoded from a ...
Bactericidal/permeability-increasing protein (BPI), a cationic protein isolated from human neutrophils, binds lipopolysaccharide (LPS), kills gram-negative bacteria, and neutralizes many of the effects of LPS in vitro and in vivo. We hypothesized that a recombinant 23-kDa NH2-terminal fragment of BPI (BPI23) would reduce acute lung injury in endotoxemic pigs. At -18 h, pigs received an intravenous priming dose of LPS (20 micrograms/kg). Anesthetized ventilated swine were randomized to receive 1) no further treatment (n = 4); 2) LPS (250 micrograms/kg over 50 min) and BPI23 (3-mg/kg bolus and 3 mg/kg over 60 min) (n = 6); or 3) LPS and thaumatin, a cationic protein devoid of LPS neutralizing activity that has a molecular mass and isoelectric point that are similar to that of BPI23 (n = 7). BPI23 treatment significantly ameliorated LPS-induced hypoxemia, functional upregulation of opsonin receptors on circulating phagocytes, and alveolitis but had no effect on the elaboration of tumor necrosis ...
Objectives: The contribution of vascular disease to neurocognitive decline is now widely recognized. Fetuin-A is an abundant plasma protein known to predict vascular disease. Prior studies have shown that fetuin-A levels are lower in patients with Alzheimers disease in direct proportion to the severity of cognitive impairment; however, their association with normal cognitive aging is unknown. We evaluated the association of serum fetuin-A levels with cognitive function in relatively high-functioning, community-dwelling older adults from the Rancho Bernardo Study.. Methods: This is a population-based study of 1382 older adults (median age 75) who had plasma fetuin-A levels and cognitive function evaluated in 1992-96; 855 had repeat cognitive function assessment a median of 4 years later.. Results: Adjusting for age, sex, education, and depression, higher levels of fetuin-A were associated with better baseline performance on the Mini-Mental Status Exam (MMSE) (P=0.012) and a tendency for better ...
The bactericidal/permeability-increasing protein (BPI) gene has been identified as a candidate gene for disease-resistance breeding. We evaluated whether polymorphisms in exons 4 and 10 of the BPI gene are associated with immune indices [interleukin-2 (IL-2), IL-4, IL-6, interferon-b (IFN-b), IL-10, and IL-12]. In this study, we identified one mutation (C522T) in the BPI exon 4 site and two mutations (A1060G and T1151G) in the BPI exon 10 site.
We have examined the interactions of hemoglobin containing liposomes and of liposomes composed of polymerizable phospholipids with blood cells and proteins. All types of liposomes studied bound a variety of serum proteins with IgG being the most abundant component in each case. Polymerized methacrylate liposomes specifically bound a 53 kilodalton protein not bound by other liposome types. None of the liposomes tested provoked platelet aggregation; however, unpolymerized methacrylate liposomes markedly inhibited ADP induced platelet aggregation. Most liposomes tested did not affect clotting of plasma; however, polymerized methacrylate liposomes bound clotting factor V and thus inhibited clotting.*BLOOD PLATELETS

DescriptionCardiopulmonary bypass is a procedure that temporarily substitutes a patients heart and lung functions with an extracorporeal heart-lung machine. This allows surgeons to operate on motionless heart and lungs, while still providing the body with proper blood circulation. However, the heart-lung machine has been shown to activate the bodys systemic inflammatory response, resulting in short- and long- term organ dysfunction, and even death. The severity of this inflammatory response is strongly correlated to the production levels of specific cytokines and complements found in the bloodstream. Current detection methods require taking discrete blood samples during surgery and waiting at least several hours, but typically one to two weeks when including laboratory queue times in hospitals, for results. I propose a microdialysis device that continuously samples the patients blood for biomarkers during surgery. The primary function of this device is to prepare a purified solution, with ...

The findings provide new opportunities to understand the mechanisms controlled by the protein, as well as investigate whether it could be a clinically useful diagnostic marker for early Alzheimers disease. The study was funded in part by the Medical Research Council (MRC), Alzheimers Research UK, Wellcome Trust and the National Institute for Health Research.. The study, led by researchers at the MRC Social, Genetic and Development Psychiatry Centre, analysed blood samples in 55 pairs of identical twins. The twins were taking part in a wider study called TwinsUK and also had taken a memory and thinking test in 1999 and in 2009. The researchers looked for changes in the levels of proteins that might correlate with changes in cognitive function over the ten-year period.. The researchers discovered that the level of a protein called MAPKAPK5 was associated with ten-year change in scores on the memory and thinking test. Those volunteers with lower levels of the protein in their blood tended to have ...

When blood plasma proteins are depleted by bleeding with return of the washed red cells (plasmapheresis) it is possible to bring dogs to a steady state of hypoproteinemia and a constant level of plasma protein production if the diet protein intake is controlled and limited. Such dogs are outwardly normal but have a lowered resistance to infection and to certain intoxications.. When the protein intake of such dogs is completely replaced by the growth mixture (Rose) of crystalline amino acids, plasma protein production is excellent, weight and nitrogen balance are maintained. This growth mixture consists of ten amino acids, threonine, valine, leucine, isoleucine, tryptophane, lysine, phenylalanine, methionine, histidine, arginine, and is as effective as most diet proteins in plasma protein production.. The above amino acid mixture in aqueous solution may be given by vein with equally good plasma protein production and no apparent clinical disturbance even when given rapidly.. Cystine may replace ...
Liver dysfunction of psoriatic patients: low serum total protein and albumin increase hospital stays, Li Yin, Ying Ying Hu, Jing Guo, Jie Tu, Zhi Qiang Yin
Protein electrophoresis is the most frequent measurement of the primary blood proteins: albumin and globulins (alpha1, alpha2, beta, and gamma). Under the influence of an electrical field, at a pH of 8.6, the proteins separated by an electrical charge, molecular size, and shape. Plotted on treated paper, the serum proteins form five homogeneous bands of the relative protein values in percentages. These percentages, when multiplied by the total protein concentration, reflect the absolute value of each protein. High-resolution electrophoresis allows the detection of additional bands or zones. Immunoelectrophoresis may be performed to identify the nature of suspicious bands or to monitor the progress of gammopathies, disturbances in immunoglobulin synthesis. The most rapid form of unknown band identification combines high-resolution electrophoresis with immunoprecipitation. Certain protein electrophoresis band patterns are characteristic of specific disease states. ...
One of the major drawbacks of many current cancer therapies is the lack of selectivity for tumor cells. Given this, a promising approach is the generation of molecularly targeted therapies that are selectively toxic to the tumor, sparing normal cells that have a different molecular phenotype. A potential therapeutic target that we and others have investigated is the DNA damage-induced cell cycle checkpoint, which can be inhibited (at least in cell culture) by pharmacological means, selectively sensitizing cells that have a disrupted p53 pathway.. UCN-01 has been shown to be a potent checkpoint inhibitor in cell culture, but it also has the undesirable properties of avid binding to human serum proteins and inhibition of other, non-checkpoint kinases (14, 15, 16) . Therefore, we have been examining analogues of UCN-01 and related compounds to identify those that sensitize cells to DNA damage by checkpoint inhibition but are more selective and do not bind human serum proteins (17 , 21) . Recent ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Direct effect of insulin on the synthesis of specific plasma proteins. T2 - Biphasic response of hepatocytes cultured in serum- and hormone-free medium. AU - Liang, T. J.. AU - Grieninger, G.. PY - 1981. Y1 - 1981. N2 - Monolayers of chicken embryo hepatocytes, cultured in chemically defined medium, retain the ability to synthesize a wide spectrum of plasma proteins for several days in the absence of added hormones. Addition of insulin to the medium elicited a biphasic stimulation of plasma protein synthesis: a rapid response of the synthesis of a limited number of plasma proteins (e.g., albumin and α1-globulin M), then, after prolonged exposure to the hormone, the involvement of additional plasma proteins (e.g., fibrinogen and lipoproteins). Synthesis of transferrin and a few other plasma proteins was not affected by the presence of insulin. The degree of stimulation for the most responsive plasma proteins ranged between 2- to 4-fold during the early phase and 10- and even ...
Introduction: The prediction of plasma protein binding (ppb) is of paramount importance in the pharmacokinetics characterization of drugs, as it causes significant changes in volume of distribution, clearance and drug half life. This study utilized Quantitative Structure - Activity Relationships (QSAR) for the prediction of plasma protein binding. Methods: Protein binding values for 794 compounds were collated from literature. The data was partitioned into a training set of 662 compounds and an external validation set of 132 compounds. Physicochemical and molecular descriptors were calculated for each compound using ACD labs/logD, MOE (Chemical Computing Group) and Symyx QSAR software packages. Several data mining tools were employed for the construction of models. These included stepwise regression analysis, Classification and Regression Trees (CART), Boosted trees and Random Forest. Results: Several predictive models were identified; however, one model in particular produced significantly superior

Soon after the introduction of high resolution two-dimensional electrophoresis (2-DE) in 1975 by Klose (16), OFarrell (17), and others, the technique was applied to the plasma proteins by the present authors (18) with the result that the number of resolved species increased to 300 or more. The 2-DE map of human plasma that resulted is recognizably the same as those produced later by many investigators: in contrast to cellular protein patterns, the plasma 2-DE pattern appears basically the same in everyones hands perhaps due to the very high solubility of the proteins involved and the ease with which the distinctive glycosylation trains of specific proteins can be recognized. A more comprehensive database was reported in 1991 in which 727 spots were resolved, of which 376 were identified as 49 different proteins (19). A plasma map using an immobilized pH gradient first dimension separation was presented the following year with 40 protein identifications carried out by microsequencing (20), and ...

In present livestock husbandry with increasing requirements for higher health and welfare issues but also tight economical margins, there is a need for tools allowing the early warning for disease. Ideally, easy to perform tools should be available that warn farmers and veterinarians that animals are infected, preferably before the onset of clinical signs. Regular use of such tools may diminish growth retardations and production losses. However, tests for early diagnosis can only be developed when animal-associated biomarkers exist that differ between uninfected healthy animals and infected, but not yet diseased, animals. The search for such biomarkers can be performed by two different approaches, either focusing on differences in predefined candidate markers, or by comparative fingerprint analysis of all components present in a biological sample.. In human medicine extensive research has been performed aiming at the discovery of early biomarkers for different kinds of disease, including ...

Moreover, the researchers analyzed the serum protein profiles of db+/db+ and +m/+m mice for the primary time, using SELDI-TOF-MS.. In addition they examined associated effects of oral inexperienced natural tea administration on serum proteins. A number of proteins have been utilized in diabetic mice to ...
Human serum albumin (HSA) is the most abundant plasma protein in the human body with a plasma concentration of 0.6mM. HSA plays an important role in drug transport and metabolism. Enzymatic activity of HSA on different substrates or drugs has been studied and documented. The structural mechanism of this activity, however, is unknown. In this study, we have determined the crystal structures of HSA-myristate in a complex of aspirin and of salicylic acid, respectively. The crystal structure of HSA-myristate-aspirin illustrates that aspirin transfers acetyl group to Lys199 and is hydrolyzed into salicylic acid by HSA. The hydrolysis product, salicylic acid, remains bound to HSA at a similar location, but it shows a very different orientation when compared with the salicylic acid in the HSA-myristate-salicylic acid ternary complex. These results not only provide the structural evidence of esterase activity of HSA, and demonstrate the conformational plasticity of HSA on drug binding, but also may ...

A method and system for the extracorporeal treatment of blood to remove fluid from the fluid overloaded patient is disclosed that non-invasively measures osmotic pressure across a filter membrane of a blood filter. The filter is permeable to water and electrolytes, but not to blood protein. The osmotic pressure indicates the protein concentration in the blood. Osmotic pressure is used to detect when hypotension is about to occur in a patient, as a result of excessive blood volume reduction during treatment of the blood. Using the osmotic pressure measurement as a feedback signal, the rate of fluid extraction is automatically controlled to achieve the desired clinical outcome and avoid precipitating a hypotensive crisis in the patient.
The bodys first line of defense, known as the innate immune system, protects against foreign invaders, including tiny microbes, bacteria or viruses. Yet it also poses a major challenge for therapeutic applications that rely on microscopic drug-delivering vehicles, or nanoparticles. These nanoparticles are in the same size range as many pathogens and are quickly detected and destroyed by macrophages, the innate immune systems sentinel cells.. Macrophages rely on proteins in blood serum that stick to foreign objects in the bloodstream; these biological red flags attract macrophages to engulf the intruders. In the past, scientists working on nanoparticles have attempted to circumvent this process by, for example, masking the engineered particles with a compound called polyethylene glycol, or PEG, to create a stealth coat that blocks these blood proteins from sticking to the nanoparticle surface.. A new approach exploits an Achilles heel of the innate immune system. Despite their veracious ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Novel inhibitors of AKT. T2 - Assessment of a different approach targeting the pleckstrin homology domain. AU - Meuillet, E. J.. PY - 2011/6/1. Y1 - 2011/6/1. N2 - Protein kinase B/AKT plays a central role in cancer. The serine/threonine kinase is over-expressed or constitutively active in many cancers and has been validated as a therapeutic target for cancer treatment. However, targeting the kinase activity has revealed itself to be a challenge due to non-selectivity of the compounds towards other kinases. This review summarizes other approaches scientists have developed to inhibit the activity and function of AKT. They consist of targeting the pleckstrin homology (PH) domain of AKT. Indeed, upon the generation of 3-phosphorylated phosphatidylinositol phosphates (PI3Ps) by PI3-kinase (PI3K), AKT translocates from the cytosol to the plasma membrane and binds to the PI3Ps via its PH domain. Thus, several analogs of PI3Ps (PI Analogs or PIAs), alkylphospholipids (APLs), such as ...
There are no blood values or levels that measure nutritional status. However, there are some blood proteins and enzymes that may alert the physician to changes in the body in response to artificial nutrition. These markers are only one tool that the physician uses in the assessment of the consumers overall health. Although there are a number of markers, I will cover only a few here. Albumin is a protein found in the blood; it is responsible for maintaining proper fluid balance inside the system that circulates the blood in the body (similar action to sodium). It is also involved in carrying various materials and drugs to different body locations. It is made in the liver, and proper nutrition is one mechanism necessary for its production. Historically, low albumin was considered an indication of malnutrition, but we know now that this is not entirely true.. Interpreting blood albumin levels is a complicated and complex process. Low blood albumin levels can be the result of wasting in certain ...

In the first mouse study, when young and old mice were conjoined, allowing blood to flow between the two, the young mice showed a decrease in neurogenesis while the old mice showed an increase. When blood plasma was then taken from old mice and injected into young mice, there was a similar decrease in neurogenesis, and impairments in memory and learning.. Analysis of the concentrations of blood proteins in the conjoined animals revealed the chemokine (a type of cytokine) whose level in the blood showed the biggest change - CCL11, or eotaxin. When this was injected into young mice, they indeed showed a decrease in neurogenesis, and this was reversed once an antibody for the chemokine was injected. Blood levels of CCL11 were found to increase with age in both mice and humans.. The chemokine was a surprise, because to date the only known role of CCL11 is that of attracting immune cells involved in allergy and asthma. It is thought that most likely it doesnt have a direct effect on neurogenesis, ...
Cordell E Logan. Aquagen™ may be one of the greatest discoveries since air. Since 1776, it is estimated that the oxygen in our atmosphere has declined about 11%. Oxygen is needed now more than ever before. Oxygen is a healer and a preventer of disease. Aquagen™ is a stabilized water-oxygen-salt mixture typically used by putting 10-15 drops in pure drinking water as a nutritional supplement.. A lack of oxygen has been assisted with almost all degenerative disease conditions. Lack of oxygen impairs nutrient transport by the red blood cells. Oxygen prevents build up of excess fluid around the cells. Excessive fluid causes oxygen to be pulled in from the blood stream as well as pulling blood proteins into this excess fluid (osmotic pressure gradient changes). This results in less oxygen in the blood and lymphatic congestion. Lack of oxygen contributes to pain. One final stage is when the cells, in a last ditch effort to survive, turns more or less into a plant cell. Plant cells don t use ...
Calcium plays a vital role in the biochemistry of the cell, particularly in signal transduction pathways. The skeleton acts as a major storage site for the element and releases Ca2+ into the bloodstream under controlled conditions. Circulating calcium is either in the free, ionized form or bound to blood proteins such as albumin. The hormone secreted by the parathyroid gland, parathyroid hormone, regulates the resorption of Ca2+ from bone.
That new UCSF paper is yet another example of the intricacies of DNA and gives us a teaching moment on how science can be done in a completely different way. Consider the blood protein hemoglobin found throughout the vertebrate species, illustrated here to show its four protein chains and their many helices. Each of the four chains has about 140 amino acids which are glued together in a long line, and then fold up into a glob. Those 140 amino acids are encoded by the corresponding DNA gene. In the gene, there are three DNA nucleotides for each amino acid. For instance, the figure below shows a short segment of a human and a horse gene, both of which code for a hemoglobin chain. The letters, ACGCT … represent the nucleotides-small molecules that make up the DNA strand. The letters A, C, G and T stand for adenine, cysteine, guanine and thymine, respectfully ...
This test is most often done when your provider suspects you have kidney disease. It may be used as a screening test.. Although small amounts of protein are normally in urine, a routine dipstick test may not detect them. A urine microalbumin test can be performed to detect small amounts of albumin in the urine that may not be detected on dipstick testing. If the kidney is diseased, proteins may be detected on a dipstick test, even if blood protein levels are normal. ...

  • WEDNESDAY, June 24, 2015 (HealthDay News) -- Researchers have discovered a protein that pancreatic tumors consistently shed into the blood, making a potentially significant advance toward a blood test that could catch the deadly cancer early. (
  • The pea protein could be used as a natural food product such as an additive or dietary supplement to help the millions of people worldwide that suffer from these conditions, suggested the researchers. (
  • The researchers now hope to test the pea protein on humans with mild hypertension. (
  • Speculating on how the pea protein achieves the effects they found, the researchers suggested it stimulates the production of COX-1 (cyclooxygenase -1), a protein that boosts kidney function, but they don't know for sure. (
  • If the human trials are successful, the researchers envisage their special protein being commercially available within the next two to three years. (
  • Canadian researchers have found that egg proteins can help reduce BP in hypertensive patients. (
  • An international team of researchers led by scientists at the University of Cambridge and MSD has created the first detailed genetic map of human proteins, the key building blocks of biology. (
  • Previously, there was only a small fraction of this knowledge, mainly because researchers could measure only a few blood proteins simultaneously in a robust manner. (
  • The researchers used a new technology ("SOMAscan") developed by a company, SomaLogic, to measure 3,600 proteins in the blood of 3,300 people. (
  • In some cases, the researchers identified multiple genetic variants influencing levels of a protein. (
  • Although studies in patients with multiple sclerosis or Alzheimer's disease (and in related animal models) indicate that fibrin may play a role in promoting these disorders, most researchers have shied away from targeting fibrin to treat neurological diseases because of concerns that targeting the protein would impair its beneficial role in blood clotting, which prevents excessive bleeding after injuries. (
  • To come up with a very precise and highly effective antibody, the researchers focused on targeting only a small region of the fibrin protein that is involved in activating the immune system in the brain. (
  • This, the researchers believe, could explain why people with blood-clotting problems seem to have a higher risk of developing cancer. (
  • Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine have developed a paradigm-shifting method for detecting small amounts of proteins in the blood. (
  • The researchers compared detection of Her2/neu in the blood between ELISA and FACTT. (
  • Using ELISA, the researchers could not detect Her2/neu from mouse blood until the tumors reached an inoperable size, but with the new FACTT technology they could detect Her2/Neu in some mice when tumors were barely visible and within two days of implantation. (
  • Umbilical cord blood could hold the key to restoring the learning and memory ability that declines with age, find researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine in California. (
  • But now, a team of MED researchers has published a study in the American Journal of Hypertension, finding that a crucial nutrient-protein-may have been overlooked, and could offer a surprising level of protection. (
  • Using data from the Framingham Heart Study' s long-running Framingham Offspring Study , the researchers found that adults who consumed more protein, whether from dairy, eggs, meat, or plant sources, had lower blood pressure levels after four years of follow-up. (
  • BOSTON (May 11, 2009) - In a study led by Akiko Hata, PhD, of Tufts University School of Medicine, researchers have shown that a protein expressed in the heart, FHL2, inhibits the genes necessary for the quiescence of vascular smooth muscle cells (vSMCs), which line blood vessels. (
  • The researchers have previously shown that BMPs (Bone Morphogenetic Proteins) play a role in the maintenance of smooth muscle cells in the pulmonary artery. (
  • Chinese researchers say a protein that makes up about 60% of protein mass in blood plasma can be used as a prognostic indicator in people on chemotherapy for malignant pleural mesothelioma. (
  • Now, an international team of researchers from the UK and USA, working with biotech company SomaLogic, has shown that large-scale measurement of proteins in a single blood test can provide important information about our health and can help to predict a range of different diseases and risk factors. (
  • In a proof-of-concept study based on five observational cohorts in almost 17,000 participants, researchers scanned 5,000 proteins in a plasma sample taken from each participant. (
  • Using existing genetic sequencing technology, the researchers can then search for the aptamers and determine which proteins are present and in what concentrations. (
  • The researchers analyzed the results using statistical methods and machine learning techniques to develop predictive models - for example, that an individual whose blood contains a certain pattern of proteins is at increased risk of developing diabetes. (
  • The researchers report that their protein-based models were all either better predictors than models based on traditional risk factors or would constitute more convenient and less expensive alternatives to traditional testing. (
  • The supplements used were formulated in a way that allowed researchers to compare the effects of soy protein, milk protein, and refined complex carbohydrate on blood pressure without changing sodium, potassium, and calcium. (
  • Using a computerised test, the researchers then assessed each individual's cognitive ability, and compared the results with the measured level of each protein in the blood. (
  • Twenty hours after infusing these proteins back into mice, the researchers found a strong signal in the brain, indicating high uptake. (
  • The researchers say that their findings may help improve the success of bone marrow transplants, and lead to better treatments for life-threatening blood diseases. (
  • Blood tests of people who display the hostile outbursts that characterize a psychiatric illness known as intermittent explosive disorder show signs of inflammation, researchers say. (
  • The proteins were selected in an unbiased, "agnostic" manner, Ganz said, as the researchers were interested in their potential predictive power, irrespective of any biological role they might play in heart disease. (
  • The baseline Heart and Soul blood samples were collected between 2000 and 2002, and the researchers employed a four-year "prediction horizon time," meaning that they checked whether patients experienced adverse cardiovascular events in the four years following the donation of blood required for enrollment in the study. (
  • NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) - With their potential to enable easier patient sampling and significantly lower assay costs, dried blood spots are an area of growing interest among clinical proteomic researchers and companies. (
  • Researchers asked 15 healthy young men and women to test their blood sugar levels at different points after eating. (
  • The researchers found that the people who consumed 63 grams of protein in the middle of the night had significantly higher blood sugar levels after eating breakfast a few hours later than when they only had water overnight. (
  • A snack a few hours before a meal can help control blood sugar levels, so researchers anticipated that would happen here as well-except the opposite showed to be true. (
  • After comparing four dietary approaches, the researchers concluded: "This evidence suggests that it is the total protein intake - not the type of protein - that is instrumental in reducing blood pressure, as part of a DASH-like dietary pattern," the researchers stated. (
  • To uncover what makes blood stem cells self-renew in a lab, the researchers analyzed the genes that turn off as human blood stem cells lose their ability to self-renew, noting which genes turned off when blood stem cells differentiate into specific blood cells such as white or red cells. (
  • The researchers wondered if maintaining the level of the MLLT3 protein in blood stem cells in lab dishes would be sufficient to improve their self-renewing abilities. (
  • Researchers consider the body's network of blood vessels to be an organ itself. (
  • Researchers have identified a stem cell protein that may play an important role in finding cure for blood cancer. (
  • It could help design targeted therapies for myeloproliferative disease, a group of slow-growing blood cancers, according to researchers, including Maneesha S. Inamdar from the Jawaharlal Nehru Centre for Advanced Scientific Research (JNCASR) in Bengaluru. (
  • The researchers studied three proteins-RhoA, Rac 1 and N -cadherin. (
  • Blood vessel with no RhoA protein activity keeps its barrier function (left), but when the researchers activated RhoA only in the mural cells, barrier function was lost (right). (
  • To study this barrier and determine why a lack of blood flow causes it to leak, the researchers built a blood-vessel-on-a-chip model consisting of a channel lined with a layer of human endothelial cells surrounded by extracellular matrix within a microfluidic device, which allowed them to easily simulate and control the flow of blood through a vessel and evaluate the cells' responses. (
  • When the researchers added a chemical that blocks Notch1 activation, they observed that the vessel started to leak, which they determined to be caused by the disruption of adherens junctions between neighboring endothelial cells and the reorganization of actin fibers within each cell, confirming that activation of Notch1 by blood flow is necessary for the formation and maintenance of blood vessels' endothelial barrier. (
  • A study by researchers from the University of East Anglia, found people who eat high levels of amino acids - which are found in meat and plant-based protein have lower blood pressure and arterial stiffness. (
  • The researchers have combined a protein called albumin with porphyrin to create a molecular complex that can absorb light energy, to allow it to split up water molecules. (
  • Stanford University researchers said that understanding how the protein, a cellular receptor, functions could help battle brain tumours and stroke by choking off or supplementing vital blood-vessel development, and may enhance the delivery of drugs across the blood-brain barrier. (
  • Interestingly, the researchers noticed that the timing of vessel development coincided with the formation of a physiological security checkpoint called the blood-brain barrier. (
  • Publishing in the Dec. 10 issue of the Journal of Clinical Oncology , researchers said a test for four blood proteins -- CEA, RBP, SCC and AAT -- may provide a simple follow-up for patients who've had suspicious chest lesions detected by imaging methods such as CT scan. (
  • In this study, the researchers compared the levels of the four proteins in the blood of about 100 lung cancer patients to levels in about 100 people without cancer. (
  • DENVER - Researchers at National Jewish Medical and Research Center have identified a protein that inhibits the formation of new blood vessels. (
  • The protein, known as angiopoietin-1, or Ang1, can restore leaky vessels to normal, block the effects of substances that make vessels leaky, and complement the action of another natural blood vessel growth stimulant known as VEGF, researchers at UC San Francisco and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc. report in the December 24 issue of Science. (
  • SALT LAKE CITY, March 22, 2009 - Researchers in Canada are reporting that proteins found in a common garden pea show promise as a natural food additive or new dietary supplement for fighting high blood pressure and chronic kidney disease (CKD). (
  • The researchers fed small daily doses of the protein mixture to laboratory rats with polycystic kidney disease, a severe form of kidney disease used as a model for research on CKD. (
  • At the end of the 8-week-long study period, the protein-fed rats with kidney disease showed a 20 percent drop in blood pressure when compared to diseased rats on a normal diet, the researchers say. (
  • Based on those promising results, the researchers plan to test the protein extract in humans with mild hypertension within the next year at the Richardson Centre for Functional Foods and Nutraceuticals, University of Manitoba, in collaboration with co-investigator Dr. Peter Jones. (
  • However, it appears to boost production of cyclooxygenase-1 (COX-1), a protein that boosts kidney function, the researchers say. (
  • All participants wore a continuous glucose monitoring system, and the researchers recorded the participants' postprandial blood glucose every 30 minutes for 5 hours after the meal. (
  • Waste blood from the meat industry has the potential to be collected and processed to generate high-added-value food ingredients, say researchers … who outline it's 'exceptional' nutritive and functional properties. (
  • Medical researchers have only recently confirmed that any such markers could be used for a blood test, and given their ultra-low concentrations, that test would need to be much more sensitive than the standard ELISA array. (
  • Rice University researchers in the lab of Ching-Hwa Kiang use the bobbing needle from an atomic force microscope to grab and pull individual protein molecules. (
  • The researchers recruited 352 people aged 22 or over with pre-hypertension and stage-1 high blood pressure and randomly assigned them to receive either 40 grams per day of protein from soy or milk, or carbohydrate supplementation each for eight weeks. (
  • But researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine and Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences recently made a surprising discovery: strep's M protein alone wipes out macrophages, but not other types of immune cells. (
  • The researchers said this new information should inform current strep vaccine strategies, many of which are based on M protein, and new treatment approaches for invasive infections and toxic shock syndrome, where hyper-immune responses can be detrimental. (
  • After noticing that macrophages in a laboratory dish quickly died after M protein exposure, the researchers wanted to determine why - and why it happens only macrophages. (
  • The researchers also noted that carbohydrates and not protein is the main fuel for rapid ATP synthesis during high-intensity exercise, and they proposed that the benefits observed from protein supplementation may be linked to improved brain metabolism during recovery. (
  • Researchers from the Federal University of Uberlândia, in Brazil, conducted a randomised crossover study to compare the acute effect of consumption of a high-protein/moderate carbohydrate (HP-MCHO) versus low-protein/high-carbohydrate (LP-HCHO) meal at night on the postprandial metabolic response of male night workers the following breakfast. (
  • The study, conducted by researchers from the University of Bath, looked into the effect of nocturnal whey protein shake consumption on postprandial responses to breakfast. (
  • When they looked at their data, the researchers were surprised to discover the blood sugar response to breakfast was higher when participants consumed the protein shake rather than plain water at 4am. (
  • Researchers now report that they've identified hundreds of proteins in human blood that wax and wane in surprising ways as we age. (
  • It is the molecule responsible for transporting oxygen from the lungs to the rest of your body through the vast transport network of your blood vessels. (
  • Blood pressure is the pressure of the blood flowing through your blood vessels against the vessel walls. (
  • Aside from its role as a blood-clotting agent, thrombin is also involved in creating new blood vessels, and it is able to degrade the extracellular matrix that keeps cells together. (
  • So it's possible that the cancer cells are increasing thrombin production to help the tumour spread, by making it easier to invade healthy tissue and creating blood vessels to supply the new tumour cells. (
  • The volume of the blood vessels in their brain increased by 50 per cent and the number of brain stem cells by 29 per cent. (
  • New research from Rice University, Baylor College of Medicine (BCM) and the Puget Sound Blood Center (PSBC) has revealed how stresses of flow in the small blood vessels of the heart and brain could cause a common protein to change shape and form dangerous blood clots. (
  • VWF is synthesized in the cells that line the walls of blood vessels, and it's stored there until the cells get signals that the vessels are in danger of injury," Moake said. (
  • The act of unfurling makes VWF sticky for platelets, and that begins the process of hemostasis, which prevents people from bleeding to death when blood vessels are damaged by cuts and wounds. (
  • However, previous research had shown that a type of physical stress called "shear" -- which can arise in partially occluded arterial blood vessels with high flow rates -- could cause PVWF to become sticky to platelets. (
  • The regulation of blood pressure is a complex process, involving the heart, kidneys, blood vessels, and numerous hormones interacting throughout the body. (
  • Other animal proteins, especially eggs, contain high levels of arginine, which dilates blood vessels and lowers blood pressure. (
  • The ability to transition between the two states is necessary for the normal development of blood vessels, regulating blood pressure, and repairing vessels that suffer from injury. (
  • By understanding the pathways that modulate vSMCs, we are closer to being able to develop reagents to ameliorate abnormal function of blood vessels," says Hata, associate professor at Tufts University School of Medicine and a member of the biochemistry program faculty at the Sackler School of Graduate Biomedical Sciences at Tufts. (
  • Among the blood vessels, venoles, capillaries, and arteriols (the microcapillary system) have the smallest diameter but they are of greatest significance for the well function of any tissue. (
  • Whereas the large blood vessels transport the above mentioned compounds to the organs, the microcapillary system penetrates through every tissue and supplies the individual cells with the nutrients necessary. (
  • Under normal circumstances, protein and blood are not found in the urine, as the kidneys retain them within their blood vessels. (
  • Proteins are electrically charged molecules that attract fluid and help keep it within blood vessels. (
  • Albumin supports healing and tissue growth and keeps blood from draining out of the vessels, according to WebMD. (
  • BOSTON - Scientists at the Harvard Medical School have discovered and produced in pure form a human substance that stimulates the production of blood vessels. (
  • They must generate new blood vessels to survive and grow. (
  • The new understanding of blood vessels could make it possible to inhibit the process as well, and starve the cancer. (
  • The scientists also hope the substance may be used to increase the blood vessel supply of an organ such as the heart in cases where this proliferation of blood vessels may be lifesaving. (
  • Being able to generate vascular systems, or new blood vessels, is critical because understanding normal blood-vessel growth is fundamental to our knowledge of how organisms grow and repair damaged tissue,'' said Dr. Bert Vallee, leader of the research that has gone on for about 10 years. (
  • Blood vessels act as a transportation system, bringing and discarding molecules to and from each organ to keep the internal stability our bodies need. (
  • But during chronic disease, or even minor injury, blood vessels can be damaged enough to compromise vital organ function. (
  • Chen and his team created a 3-D blood vessel-on-a-chip model that can be used to understand what happens to vessels during injury on a molecular scale. (
  • Scientists have long known that the endothelial cells that line the inside of blood vessels are the main regulators of the barrier in between the blood circulating within the vessels and the rest of the body. (
  • With chronic disease, such as liver cirrhosis, the blood vessels are constantly exposed to these proteins, and the loss of barrier function is prolonged. (
  • when blood flow is disrupted, such as during surgical procedures or a stroke, the vessels start to leak, which can cause a host of inflammatory responses that lead to cell damage and disease. (
  • Scientists at the Wyss Institute at Harvard University set out to solve the mystery of how blood flow keeps the vessels intact and, to their surprise, discovered a completely new cell signaling pathway that is a promising target for drugs to treat a variety of debilitating conditions. (
  • We found that the well-known Notch protein is responsible for keeping blood vessels from becoming leaky, and does so through a secondary signaling pathway that operates in a completely different manner than its known transcription-based pathway," says Chris Chen, M.D., Ph.D., Associate Faculty member of the Wyss Institute and Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Boston University, who is the corresponding author of the paper. (
  • The endothelial cells that line blood vessels are linked tightly together through connections called adherens junctions to form a barrier that keeps the blood inside the vessel and regulates how easily other substances can pass in and out of it. (
  • Curiously, blocking Notch1's known mechanism of action - the detachment of its intracellular domain from the rest of the protein - did not make the vessels leak, which implied that some other part of the protein was responding to blood flow. (
  • This suspicion was strengthened by in vivo experiments in which the scientists injected mice with a chemical that blocked Notch1 activation along with blue dye, and saw that the dye leaked out of the blood vessels of treated mice at a much faster rate than expected. (
  • Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a general term for conditions affecting the heart or blood vessels and it is usually associated with a build up of fatty deposits in the arteries. (
  • Washington, Nov 12 (ANI): A new study has suggested that one protein single-handedly controls the growth of blood vessels into the developing brains of mice embryos. (
  • Endothelial cells line blood vessels throughout the body and help blood to flow more smoothly. (
  • These embryos did not have any blood vessels entering their forebrains or developing spinal cords at all. (
  • In contrast, control mice embryos, with normal expression of GPR124, began developing brain blood vessels by about 11.5 days. (
  • While the mice at first seemed normal, they began to develop large tangles of blood vessels in their forebrains as they aged. (
  • When we slightly altered the naturally occurring protein it was even more effective at inhibiting the sprouting of new blood vessels. (
  • Cancer tumors need nutrients and oxygen supplied by blood vessels in order to grow. (
  • They also use blood vessels to spread to other parts of the body. (
  • The strategy of fighting cancer by preventing the growth of new blood vessels has generated great interest in recent years, with the first antiangiogenic drug being approved earlier this year. (
  • Endothelial cells are specialized cells that develop into blood vessels. (
  • In cell culture studies, Schiemann and Albig showed fibulin-5 levels drop significantly when endothelial cells begin to form blood vessels, a process known as tubulation. (
  • They also show that high levels of fibulin-5 could prevent the sprouting of new blood vessels by inhibiting the proliferation and movement of endothelial cells. (
  • Blood vessels are extremely dynamic: depending on the external conditions, they can adapt their permeability for nutrients, their contractility, and even their shape. (
  • Unlike cardiac muscle cells, for example, the smooth muscle cells in blood vessels demonstrate a high degree of plasticity, so they can specialise or multiply as required, even repairing damage to the vessel wall. (
  • The walls of blood vessels consist of smooth muscle cells, elastic fibres, and endothelial cells, which line the interior surface of the vessel. (
  • A protein recently found to increase blood vessel growth now appears to protect vessels from leaking as well, a potential boon to treatments for chronic inflammatory diseases and for new therapies that grow healthy blood vessels in damaged hearts and limbs. (
  • The new findings, based on studies of blood vessels in the skin of mice, "raise the possibility that a combination of VEGF and Ang1 could have additive effects in promoting angiogenesis (the growth of new blood vessels) plus the added beneficial effect of forming non-leaky vessels," the authors state in the Science paper. (
  • The concern is not about vessels leaking blood, but rather plasma, the part of blood that lacks red blood cells. (
  • VEGF and Ang1 are the only natural growth-inducing proteins shown to act specifically on the cells that line blood vessels - endothelial cells. (
  • The new studies reported in the paper examined the effects of Ang1 and VEGF, separately and together, on the performance of blood vessels in the skin of mice. (
  • Peripheral Vascular Disease Understand more about diseases and disorders of the blood vessels outside of the heart. (
  • Focusing on a protein called von Willebrand factor (VWF), a team of scientists discovered how stresses of blood flow in small blood vessels of the brain and heart could cause changes to the shape of VWF and form blood clots. (
  • Pineal region tumors are normally composed of a variety of cells including astrocytes, ganglion cells, blood vessels, and pinealocytes, which are the cells of this organ. (
  • These proteins arise from blood vessels, nerve cells and muscle cells. (
  • Total protein and Albumin/Globulin (A/G) ratio. (
  • New research suggests that the blood protein albumin may offer a simple, fast way to predict treatment response in people with malignant pleural mesothelioma. (
  • To do this, first author Andrew Yang collected blood from young healthy mice, depleted highly abundant proteins such as albumin and antibodies, and radiolabeled the remaining proteins. (
  • There are two types of protein measured in the blood: albumin and globulin. (
  • Serum albumin accounts for 55% of blood proteins, is a major contributor to maintaining the oncotic pressure of plasma and assists, as a carrier, in the transport of lipids and steroid hormones. (
  • Based on lipid analysis and Western blotting, we show that the bacteria-like entities consist of membrane vesicles containing serum and exosome proteins, including albumin, fetuin-A, apolipoprotein-A1, alkaline phosphatase, TNFR1 and CD63. (
  • Their study took blood from over 100 sets of healthy twin volunteers, of whom 55 were identical twin-pairs, and measured over 1,000 proteins in the samples. (
  • The study, the largest of its kind, measured over 1,000 proteins in the blood of over 200 healthy individuals, using a laboratory test called a SOMAscan*, a protein biomarker discovery tool which allows a high volume of proteins to be measured simultaneously. (
  • Ganz said the team was surprised to discover that about 200 of the original 1,000 proteins targeted had at least some predictive value. (
  • The development of nanoscale membrane bilayers (Nanodiscs) has now allowed us to probe, with nanometer resolution, how local variations in phospholipid composition regulate the activity of key protease-cofactor complexes in blood clotting. (
  • Our bodies contain around 30,000 different proteins, which are coded for by our DNA and regulate biological processes. (
  • As we better understand the biological pathways that regulate the growth of stem cells, we may identify new approaches for treating blood disorders," said Dr. Wei Tong, a hematology researcher at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, who led the study published online in the Journal of Clinical Investigation. (
  • The 3-D blood vessel-on-a-chip has allowed Chen and the team to identify specific proteins that regulate vascular barrier function. (
  • Fibulin-5, a member of a family of extracellular matrix proteins that regulate tissue development, remodeling and repair, interacts with endothelial cells. (
  • Contrary to expectations, the two G protein-mediated signalling pathways antagonistically regulate the plasticity of smooth muscle cells," says Offermanns, summarising the findings. (
  • In search of better options, Baldan looked to one of the proteins that regulate the metabolic fate of lipid droplets. (
  • For example, it is used as a diagnostic test to determine exposure to infectious agents, such as HIV, by identifying antibodies present in a blood sample. (
  • When you're healthy, plasma cells (a type of white blood cell) in your body's bone marrow help your body fight infections by producing antibodies that find and attack germs. (
  • During this process, laboratory technicians measure the different antibodies in your blood. (
  • Radiolabeled plasma proteins (bottom) pass easily into the young mouse brain, while antibodies (top) are locked out. (
  • Immune function (antibodies are proteins). (
  • The standard protein detection assay, ELISA, involves attaching antibodies to the proteins in question, then measuring how much the sample's color changes in response to enzymes linked to the antibodies. (
  • M protein is known to help the bacteria adhere to human tissues, make it harder for immune cells to engulf the bacteria, and bind or inhibit other components of the human immune system, such as antibodies and antimicrobial peptides. (
  • Our study suggests that targeting M proteins with vaccines or antibodies or blocking the way macrophages bring it into the cell might prove clinically useful in cases where hyper-inflammation has become a problem, such as in an invasive infection or toxic shock syndrome," he said. (
  • The challenge is that human antibodies generated against M protein can cross-react with host tissue, leading to rheumatic fever, an autoimmune disease. (
  • For those who ate an average of 100 grams of protein per day, there was a 40 per cent lower risk of having high blood pressure than those on a low-protein diet. (
  • While average adults need 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight, athletes need anywhere between 1.2 to 2.0 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight, depending on the intensity and duration of training, according to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics . (
  • For example, if you ate a steak containing 45 grams of protein and your carb-to-insulin ratio is 15:1, you would use a 30:1 ratio to cover the protein, or 1.5 units of insulin. (
  • You may need this test if you have an unexplained blood clot or a family history of blood clots. (
  • A lack of this protein or a problem with the function of this protein may cause blood clots to form in veins. (
  • Blood clots tend to form more often in the veins of people with cancer, a syndrome first described almost 150 years ago by French physician Armand Trousseau. (
  • So inflammation caused by cancer could lead to increased thrombin levels and, as thrombin is a blood-clotting agent, this could explain why cancer patients are more likely to suffer from blood-clots. (
  • University of Houston researcher Chandra Mohan is reporting in Arthritis Research and Therapy that clotting proteins, both those that promote blood clots (pro-thrombotic) and those that work to dissipate them (thrombolytic), are elevated in the urine of patients who suffer from lupus nephritis (LN). (
  • The insoluble fibrin aggregates (clots) and aggregated platelets then block the damaged blood vessel and prevent further bleeding. (
  • New research has revealed how stresses of flow in the bloodstream can cause a common protein to change shape and initiate the formation of dangerous blood clots. (
  • Scientists have tried, without great success, to find markers, or indicators, for pancreatic cancer -- proteins in the blood that consistently and specifically signal the presence of the disease. (
  • Scientists in the Molecular Medicine Partnership Unit (MMPU), a collaboration between the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg, Germany, and the University of Heidelberg Medical Centre, have discovered how stressed cells boost the production of the key blood-clotting factor, thrombin. (
  • The scientists were surprised to find that the proteins could remain in the dangerous, clot-initiating shape for up to five hours before returning to their normal, healthy shape. (
  • Her2/neu proteins were in fact first identified by the Greene laboratory in the early 1980s, and the Her2/neu gene was found by other scientists to be overexpressed in breast cancer. (
  • Scientists don't know all the details yet, but they've found that dairy proteins contain certain compounds that act as natural ACE (angiotensin-converting-enzyme) inhibitors, one of the major types of blood pressure medications. (
  • Scientists at King's College London have identified a single blood protein that may indicate the development of Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI) years before symptoms appear, a disorder that has been associated with an increased risk of Alzheimer's disease or other dementias. (
  • The scientists were surprised by the amount of protein that got in. (
  • According to research conducted by nutritional scientists, "lean beef" is a particularly beneficial source of protein for lowering blood pressure. (
  • Newswise - UCLA scientists have discovered a link between a protein and the ability of human blood stem cells to self-renew. (
  • It could also enable scientists to produce blood stem cells from pluripotent stem cells, which have the potential to create any cell type in the body. (
  • The scientists also detected and cloned the gene that is the genetic blueprint for making the protein. (
  • Now, with the 3-D blood vessel-on-a-chip, scientists in a laboratory can study cell-to-cell interactions in vasculature in the most lifelike setting yet. (
  • Now scientists have found that this type of fat, compared to other types, produces higher levels of a protein that can be detected in the blood. (
  • In recent years scientists at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and Harvard Medical School in Boston have been exploring the unexpected complexity of the molecule retinol-binding protein (RBP4), once thought to have the sole purpose of ferrying vitamin A (retinol) through the bloodstream. (
  • In the new study, reported in the July 2007 issue of the journal Cell Metabolism , the scientists set out to determine if blood levels of RBP4 were directly influenced by visceral fat, which surrounds abdominal organs and has been linked to disease risk. (
  • Some patients experience tissue swelling due to blood vessel leakage after VEGF treatment, the scientists note. (
  • Together, the two proteins seem to offer the best of both worlds, the scientists concluded. (
  • According to previous research, the New Orleans-based scientists note that a 2 mmHg decrease in systolic blood pressure could lead to 6 percent fewer stroke-related deaths, a 4 percent lower rate of heart disease deaths and a 3 percent reduction in overall deaths among Americans. (
  • High protein was also found to attenuate increases in cerebral blood perfusion which led to a 16% longer cycling time, report scientists from the University of Taipei (Taiwan) and the Competitor Institute of Sports Nutrition in Beijing. (
  • Scientists know that if they transfuse blood from a young mouse to an old one, then they can stave off or even reverse some signs of aging. (
  • The scientists studied nearly 3,000 proteins in blood plasma that was drawn from more than 4,000 people with a span of ages from 18 to 95. (
  • Tanaka says new technology that allows scientists to identify many proteins simultaneously is accelerating this research dramatically. (
  • The study's results suggest that partly replacing refined carbohydrates with foods or drinks high in soy or milk protein may help prevent and treat high blood pressure, said Jiang He, M.D., Ph.D., lead researcher of the study. (
  • Some previous observational research on eating carbohydrates inconsistently suggested that a high carbohydrate diet might help reduce blood pressure," said He, an epidemiologist at Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine in New Orleans, La. "In contrast, our clinical trial directly compares soy protein with milk protein on blood pressure, and shows they both lower blood pressure better than carbohydrates. (
  • This may result in the body having more carbohydrates already available upon waking, such that the energy in the breakfast can less easily be used or stored, so it builds up more in the blood," she said. (
  • Fat, protein, and carbohydrates are all essential to your overall health. (
  • Carbohydrates and fat are the body's primary energy sources, but protein fills many other crucial roles in the body. (
  • A recent study published in Circulation reported that increasing protein intake may actually help lower systolic blood pressure by more than 2 mmHg in comparison with intake of carbohydrates. (
  • This may mean simply increasing protein intake or partially replacing simple carbohydrates, such as white bread, with soy or milk protein. (
  • All breakfasts had 30 g of carbohydrates, but varying amounts of protein and fat. (
  • Thus, one would expect glucose levels would stay elevated for a longer time after a breakfast of eggs, bacon, and toast compared to a breakfast equal in carbohydrates but low in protein and fat, such as toast and fruit," said Ms. Maryniuk. (
  • Daily supplements of milk and soy protein are both effective at lowering blood pressure, and both performed better that carbohydrates, say results of a clinical trial. (
  • According to Dr He, the study's findings suggest that partly replacing refined carbohydrates with foods or drinks high in soy or milk protein may help prevent and treat high blood pressure. (
  • "Some previous observational research on eating carbohydrates inconsistently suggested that a high carbohydrate diet might help reduce blood pressure," ​ said He. (
  • In contrast, our clinical trial directly compares soy protein with milk protein on blood pressure, and shows they both lower blood pressure better than carbohydrates. (
  • Importantly, this rise in blood sugar occurs gradually over several hours and increases much less than it would if you ate an equivalent amount of carbohydrates. (
  • In recent years, doctors have also come to realise that people with activated blood coagulation are more likely to develop cancer. (
  • Because coagulation system disorders have been reported in SLE and lupus nephritis patients and the frequency of thrombotic events was documented to be higher in SLE patients than in the general population, Mohan's lab examined urinary proteins related to coagulation. (
  • Fibrinogen is an acute phase protein that is part of the coagulation cascade of proteins. (
  • Professor of biomedical engineering Chandra Mohan reports that clotting proteins are elevated in the urine of patients with lupus nephritis. (
  • Among the proteins examined, urine plasmin emerged as the strongest independent predictor of kidney function and renal disease status," reports Mohan, Hugh Roy and Lillie Cranz Cullen Endowed Professor of biomedical engineering. (
  • Finding elevations in both pro-thrombotic and thrombolytic proteins in the urine of patients with lupus nephritis was unexpected. (
  • When I first saw the presence of both I thought 'This can't be right, so let's look at this in more detail with more urine samples and better assays,'" said Mohan, who describes the presence of both proteins as "a raging war" within the kidneys. (
  • Among the proteins examined, urine plasmin emerged as the strongest independent predictor of kidney function and renal disease status. (
  • Finding M proteins in the blood or urine is usually a sign of disease. (
  • It can lead to a condition called Bence Jones proteinuria that causes a buildup of certain M proteins in the urine. (
  • They may also notice unusual levels of protein in your urine. (
  • If a doctor sees that your blood or urine test results show abnormal protein levels, they'll recommend further testing. (
  • They do so by filtering the blood and excreting noxious chemicals and molecules into the urine. (
  • If you find protein and blood in your urine, it could be a sign of kidney disease. (
  • Protein and blood in your urine can be detected using a test called a urinalysis. (
  • The kidney does not allow molecules as large as proteins to be filtered into the urine. (
  • Therefore the presence of protein in the urine, also called proteinuria, is an indication that either the glomeruli, the microscopic filtering units within the kidneys, or the tubules that carry blood throughout the kidney are damaged. (
  • Some temporary causes for the presence of protein in the urine include fever and heat exposure. (
  • Conditions that cause persistently elevated protein levels in the urine include kidney infections, chronic renal failure, glomerulonephritis - an inflammation of the glomeruli - and high blood pressure. (
  • If the level of protein loss in the urine is large enough that it decreases the amount of protein in the bloodstream, fluid can leak out into the surrounding tissues, causing edema. (
  • Blood in the urine can be a scary sight, although sometimes the blood loss is microscopic and can only be picked up by a urinalysis. (
  • The treatment for the presence of protein and blood in the urine depends on the underlying cause. (
  • Is a Urine Protein Level of 234.0 High? (
  • Hi Jmc, There are a number of possible causes for blood, protein and ketones in the urine. (
  • The current induces the different proteins in your serum to move and group together. (
  • In the new research, published in the June 21, 2016 online issue of JAMA , the research team began by measuring levels of more than 1,000 different proteins in blood samples obtained as baseline measures in the UCSF-based "Heart and Soul" study, which has followed the cardiovascular health of study participants for as long as 11 years. (
  • Higher blood concentrations of Her2/neu correlate with a lower response rate to chemotherapy and shorter survival time after relapse. (
  • They accurately tease-out vanishingly small concentrations of proteins and other molecules that help give a picture of overall health or signal the presence of specific diseases. (
  • Concentrations of the tight junction proteins (TJs) Claudin-5 (CLDN5), Occludin (OCLN), and zonula occludens 1 (ZO-1) and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) were measured by using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay in serum and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) samples obtained from patients with ICH. (
  • This process is fast and simple enough to be incorporated in point-of-care devices, like home HIV tests, but only works when the proteins are in large concentrations. (
  • As you keep increasing the number of proteins, the traditional test will eventually be able to detect them, but this new system can quantify the number of proteins at concentrations a thousand times less. (
  • It is packed into the red blood cells that transport it, with around 250 million molecules in each cell. (
  • But in several neurological disorders, the blood-brain barrier--which keeps large molecules in the blood from entering the brain--becomes abnormally permeable, allowing fibrin to leak into the brain and trigger inflammation. (
  • Kiang's team uses the bobbing needle to grab and pull apart individual protein molecules. (
  • The FACTT technology uses a different enzyme amplification system so quantitative signals can be obtained from even a few protein molecules compared to ELISA. (
  • Other recent studies have identified small molecules - organic compounds that are often used to create pharmaceutical drugs - that help to multiply human blood stem cells in the laboratory. (
  • When Mikkola's team used the small molecules, they observed that blood stem cell self-renewal improved in general, but the cells could not maintain proper MLLT3 levels, and they also did not function as well when transplanted into mice. (
  • They've engineered a new compound from two molecules that occur naturally in blood, to use solar energy to split water molecules into hydrogen and oxygen. (
  • One of the great things about these advancements in technology is it's becoming a lot cheaper to measure a lot of these molecules," she says, "so bigger studies and more studies can assess the same proteins. (
  • Aside from water, proteins are the most abundant kind of molecules in the body. (
  • SAN FRANCISCO, CA--October 15, 2018--Normally, the blood protein fibrin does not enter the brain. (
  • A May 2018 study published in the Journal of Dietary Supplements recommends that you try to fulfill your protein requirements from natural food sources and resort to protein supplements only if you are not getting enough protein from your normal diet. (
  • For comparison, they used blood samples from healthy donors and small groups of people with other conditions, such as pancreatitis (chronic inflammation of the pancreas). (
  • For their new study, published online on October 15 in the journal Nature Immunology , Akassoglou and her colleagues used models of neurodegeneration simulating two major brain diseases that are associated with blood-brain barrier leakage, chronic inflammation, and vascular abnormalities: multiple sclerosis and Alzheimer's disease. (
  • But Danckwardt and colleagues discovered that, when our cells come under stress from inflammation, another protein, called p38 MAPK, reacts by adding a chemical tag to those production-slowing proteins. (
  • Most will have elevated protein levels as long as there is inflammation present. (
  • Inflammation from the disease can impact many different parts of the body including joints, skin, kidneys, blood cells, brain and heart. (
  • A blood CRP, or C-reactive protein, level is measured to determine if inflammation is present in the body, according to MedlinePlus. (
  • A C-reactive protein (CRP) blood test is used to identify inflammation or infection in the body. (
  • C-reactive protein is released into the blood by the liver shortly after the start of an infection or inflammation. (
  • Doctors may order the C-reactive protein test if symptoms suggest any kind of inflammation, particularly related to inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), arthritis flare-ups, or an autoimmune disorder such as rheumatoid arthritis or lupus. (
  • What we show is that inflammation markers [proteins] are up in these aggressive individuals," said Dr. Emil Coccaro, professor and chair of psychiatry and behavioral neuroscience at the University of Chicago. (
  • For the study, Coccaro looked at levels of two types of indicators of inflammation in blood: C-reactive protein and interleukin-6. (
  • The blood test to evaluate inflammation won't be a diagnostic test, however, because the disorder is diagnosed by observation and reports of behavior. (
  • When the body sends out a signal that triggers inflammation, certain proteins are released that cause the blood vessel to lose its ability to act as a barrier. (
  • C-reactive protein levels can be high when there is inflammation or infection. (

  • A protein in blood can repair age-related damage in the brains and muscles of old mice, returning them to a more youthful state. (
  • The idea that an infusion of young blood could regenerate ageing bodies was explored several years ago when the circulatory systems of old mice were physically connected to those of young animals , as if they were conjoined twins. (
  • This rejuvenated the stem cells in the bone marrow of the older mice that replenish their blood , and led to a wave of studies comparing the blood of old and young mice to try and identify the youth-giving substance. (
  • In a separate study, a team led by Tony Wyss-Coray at the Stanford School of Medicine in California gave 18-month-old mice, the equivalent of mid-to-late middle age, eight injections of blood plasma taken from 3-month-old mice. (
  • Providing older mice with injections of human umbilical cord blood revitalized their brain function. (
  • The brains of older mice act younger when exposed to human umbilical cord blood. (
  • A previous study demonstrated that when young mice's plasma - the cell-free part of blood - was injected into old mice, their performance in memory and learning tests improved. (
  • They found that in young healthy mice, the blood-brain barrier allows in large quantities of endogenous plasma protein via receptor-mediated transport. (
  • In young mice, plasma proteins pass readily into the brain. (
  • In their latest study, her team observed that mice genetically engineered to lack the Lnk protein had 10 times the normal amount of HSCs in their bone marrow. (
  • The study, done on mice, suggests a stem cell protein called Asrij is a novel regulator of wild type tumour suppressor p53 stability in hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs). (
  • In order to investigate the signalling pathways and their regulation, Till Althoff, who headed the study, examined mice whose genes for the various G proteins he had specifically deactivated. (
  • In this particular study, they examined how lipids are metabolized in both the liver and fat tissue in mice treated with antisense oligonucleotides that reduce the expression of the protein FSP27. (
  • Having shown that FSP27 is necessary for triglyceride accumulation, Baldan hypothesized that obese mice would benefit from silencing this protein. (
  • Baldan and his team studied two groups of mice with obesity, high blood sugar, and fatty liver disease: one that consumed a high-fat diet (the dietary model) and another that was genetically modified to have this trait (the genetic model). (
  • The mice were genetically modified to overproduce the growth-inducing proteins in the skin, where the effects on blood vessel leakage could be observed. (
  • Likewise, mice administered with purified M protein alone produced significantly more IL-1beta than mice that received a control. (
  • Thinking back to those age-reversing experiments in mice, it might also be possible to isolate proteins in the blood that contribute to that effect. (
  • We also found that FHL2 is important in the regulation of vasomotor tone, or the contraction and relaxation of muscles in the blood vessel. (
  • He said identification of the substance was particularly important because many diseases involved abnormalities in blood-vessel proliferation. (
  • Much research is devoted to blood-vessel formation and the substances that control it. (
  • Professor Christopher Chen (BME, MSE), director of the Biological Design Center and associate faculty at the Wyss Institute at Harvard University, has now built a way to study blood vessel function in a way that closely mimics the real thing. (
  • Then they could measure activity levels of specific proteins along with how penetrable the vessel became under inflammatory conditions. (
  • By measuring both the levels of activity of these three proteins and the vessel barrier function at the same time, they could gauge how each protein's activity affected the barrier. (
  • Each one of these proteins plays a different role in maintaining vessel barrier function. (
  • They analysed data from 2,000 women with a healthy BMI, looked at their diet and compared it to their blood pressure - and blood vessel stiffness. (
  • And the effects were very specific for the nervous system since all other organs had normal blood vessel development," said Kuo. (
  • If a blood vessel is damaged, existing smooth muscle cells can give rise to new specialised muscle cells to repair it. (
  • For example, if a coronary blood vessel is opened up with dilatation and stents via a catheter, muscle cell growth may cause it to narrow once again. (
  • This is surprising in that these signalling pathways act together in other contexts: stimuli that promote vessel contraction and thus increase blood pressure activate both signalling pathways in parallel. (
  • VEGF stands for vascular endothelial growth factor, the focus of current clinical trials to increase blood vessel growth in limbs and hearts with inadequate blood supplies. (
  • The studies confirmed that each protein boosts blood vessel growth. (
  • Blood vessel leakiness is a common and potentially serious problem in clinical medicine. (
  • The cytoplasmic and often nuclear expression of S100 protein is present in nearly all tumor cells, and vimentin typically stains tumor cell cytoplasm adjacent to vessel walls. (
  • Cells in the pancreas can release glucagon , a hormone that signals the body to produce glucose from glycogen in the muscles and liver and release it into the blood. (
  • Low protein levels indicate conditions like liver disease, nephrotic syndrome, malnutrition or malabsorption. (
  • All blood proteins are synthesized in liver except for the gamma globulins. (
  • As long as you aren't taking too much protein supplements, it shouldn't affect your liver enzymes. (
  • But can protein shakes affect your liver enzymes? (
  • Your liver plays an important part in digesting the amino acids that are the building blocks of proteins. (
  • The liver is the checkpoint for the distribution of all macronutrients, including proteins. (
  • In a study published in the Journal of Lipid Research , Saint Louis University scientist Angel Baldan, PhD, reports that turning off a protein found in liver and adipose tissue significantly improves blood sugar levels, as well as reduces body fat in an animal model. (
  • In fact, we found that this protein is necessary to accumulate triglycerides in the liver. (
  • When there is no insulin to balance the glucagon, blood sugar levels rise as the liver releases stored sugar. (
  • For example, in proteins traced back to the liver, "that would tell us that the liver is aging. (
  • Sometimes, blood tests can help them see how well an organ (such as the liver or kidneys ) is working. (
  • Participants were age 22 or older, with systolic blood pressure ranging from 120 to 159 mmHg and diastolic blood pressure from 80 to 95 mmHg. (
  • The study results showed no decrease in diastolic blood pressure. (
  • Although the effect of protein on diastolic blood pressure (bottom number) was not considered statistically significant, protein did have a significant impact on systolic blood pressure (top number), helping to lower systolic blood pressure by 2-2.3 mmHg. (
  • High blood pressure (hypertension), defined as having a systolic and diastolic blood pressure (BP) greater than 140 and 90 mmHg, is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD) - a disease that causes almost 50 per cent of deaths in Europe, and reported to cost the EU economy an estimated $200 bn per year. (
  • Results showed that soy and milk protein supplementations were associated with reductions in systolic blood pressure of 2.0 and 2.3 mmHg, respectively, but no changes in diastolic blood pressure, compared with the carbohydrate group. (

  • The level of MBL protein in an individual's circulation is genetically determined and can vary drastically from person to person. (
  • The paper deals with two herbicides, glyphosate and glufosinate ammonium that are sprayed on both genetically modified (GM) and non-GM crops, and an insecticidal protein Cry1Ab that is produced by the naturally occurring soil bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis sub sp. (
  • The gene encoding this protein has been used to genetically modify some crops so that they contain the protein and are thus protected against certain insect pests. (
