A variety of techniques are used to separate the compounds, ionize them, and introduce them to the first mass analyzer. For example, for in GC-MS/MS, GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY-MASS SPECTROMETRY is involved in separating relatively small compounds by GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY prior to injecting them into an ionization chamber for the mass selection.Tumor Markers, Biological: Molecular products metabolized and secreted by neoplastic tissue and characterized biochemically in cells or body fluids. They are indicators of tumor stage and grade as well as useful for monitoring responses to treatment and predicting recurrence. Many chemical groups are represented including hormones, antigens, amino and nucleic acids, enzymes, polyamines, and specific cell membrane proteins and lipids.Kallikreins: Proteolytic enzymes from the serine endopeptidase family found in normal blood and urine.

Renin, an enzyme produced in the kidney, acts on angiotensinogen, an alpha-2 globulin produced by the liver, forming ANGIOTENSIN I. Angiotensin-converting enzyme, contained in the lung, acts on angiotensin I in the plasma converting it to ANGIOTENSIN II, an extremely powerful vasoconstrictor. Angiotensin II causes contraction of the arteriolar and renal VASCULAR SMOOTH MUSCLE, leading to retention of salt and water in the KIDNEY and increased arterial blood pressure. In addition, angiotensin II stimulates the release of ALDOSTERONE from the ADRENAL CORTEX, which in turn also increases salt and water retention in the kidney. Angiotensin-converting enzyme also breaks down BRADYKININ, a powerful vasodilator and component of the KALLIKREIN-KININ SYSTEM.Encyclopedias as Topic: Works containing information articles on subjects in every field of knowledge, usually arranged in alphabetical order, or a similar work limited to a special field or subject. (From The ALA Glossary of Library and Information Science, 1983)Renin: A highly specific (Leu-Leu) endopeptidase that generates ANGIOTENSIN I from its precursor ANGIOTENSINOGEN, leading to a cascade of reactions which elevate BLOOD PRESSURE and increase sodium retention by the kidney in the RENIN-ANGIOTENSIN SYSTEM. The enzyme was formerly listed as EC 3.4.99.19.Angiotensinogen: An alpha-globulin of about 453 amino acids, depending on the species. It is produced by the liver and secreted into blood circulation. Angiotensinogen is the inactive precursor of natural angiotensins. Upon successive enzyme cleavages, angiotensinogen yields angiotensin I, II, and III with amino acids numbered at 10, 8, and 7, respectively.Angiotensin II: An octapeptide that is a potent but labile vasoconstrictor. It is produced from angiotensin I after the removal of two amino acids at the C-terminal by ANGIOTENSIN CONVERTING ENZYME. The amino acid in position 5 varies in different species. To block VASOCONSTRICTION and HYPERTENSION effect of angiotensin II, patients are often treated with ACE INHIBITORS or with ANGIOTENSIN II TYPE 1 RECEPTOR BLOCKERS.Peptidyl-Dipeptidase A: A peptidyl-dipeptidase that catalyzes the release of a C-terminal dipeptide, -Xaa-*-Xbb-Xcc, when neither Xaa nor Xbb is Pro. It is a Cl(-)-dependent, zinc glycoprotein that is generally membrane-bound and active at neutral pH. It may also have endopeptidase activity on some substrates. (From Enzyme Nomenclature, 1992) EC 3.4.15.1.Angiotensin I: A decapeptide that is cleaved from precursor angiotensinogen by RENIN. Angiotensin I has limited biological activity. It is converted to angiotensin II, a potent vasoconstrictor, after the removal of two amino acids at the C-terminal by ANGIOTENSIN CONVERTING ENZYME.

  • The influence of female sex hormones on body fluid regulation and metabolism homeostasis has been widely studied. (humankinetics.com)
  • Failure of regulation profoundly affects body fluid volumes, blood pressure, cardiovascular function, and acid-base balance. (nap.edu)
  • In fact, the most important means by which the body maintains a balance between water intake and output, as well as a balance between intake and output of most electrolytes in the body, is by controlling the rates at which the kidneys excrete these substances. (123doc.org)
  • The kidneys are faced with the task of adjusting the excretion rate of water and elec- trolytes to match precisely the intake of these substances, as well as compensating for excessive losses of fluids and electrolytes that occur in certain disease states. (123doc.org)
  • Reduction of fluid intake occurs irrespective of space motion sickness and leads to hypovolemia. (biologists.org)
  • Nevertheless, it is fascinating that elevated ADH levels and reduced fluid intake occur simultaneously early in flight. (biologists.org)
  • Sodium Acetate Injection, USP 40 mEq is indicated as a source of sodium, for addition to large volume intravenous fluids to prevent or correct hyponatremia in patients with restricted or no oral intake. (nih.gov)
  • The importance of a reduced sodium intake, as well as fluid removal with diuretics, for volume management BP control in patients with chronic kidney disease is discussed elsewhere. (uptodate.com)
  • Moderate sodium intake helps increase resistance to heat cramps and heat stroke, especially during times of excessive sweat ing and hence increased fluid loss. (everything2.com)
  • We should consider two types of water: metabolic water, produced by synthesis reactions in the body, and pre-formed water, originating from the intake of drinks and foods. (cosmeticsandtoiletries.com)
  • How does the total intake of fluids compare with the total output of fluids? (prezi.com)
  • A major emphasis and strength of our proposal is the rigorously collected, matched samples of multiple body fluids on the same subjects, with emphasis on accurate acquisition and analysis of exRNA and our extensive experience in all aspects of the proposed work. (grantome.com)
  • The field of extracellular RNA (exRNA) is changing rapidly, but has already altered our view of communication between cells and has introduced a new class of diagnostic biomarkers. (grantome.com)
  • Recent advances in RNA sequencing technologies have identified a large and diverse population of extracellular RNA (exRNA) including microRNA and long non-coding RNA (lncRNAs). (nih.gov)
  • Angiotensin I is then converted to an octapeptide , angiotensin II by angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE), which is thought to be found mainly in endothelial cells of the capillaries throughout the body, within the lungs and the epithelial cells of the kidneys. (wikipedia.org)
  • In this course, students learn to recognize and to apply the basic concepts that govern integrated body function (as an intact organism) in the body's nine organ systems. (coursera.org)
  • This fluid contains 75-90% water, as well as many enzymes, soluble proteins, nutrients and other ions, which are involved in the body's metabolic reactions. (cosmeticsandtoiletries.com)
  • Free radicals are a type of a highly reactive metabolite that is naturally produced by your body as a result of normal metabolism and energy production. (mercola.com)
  • The thyroid gland plays an important role in energy metabolism and in the growth of the body. (webindia123.com)
  • I'm a chemist , not a doctor, but I assume a Ringer's IV would aid in the recovery from a hangover by countering the effects of dehydration (alcohol is a diuretic ), which in turn helps the body detoxify and expel congener s and all the nasty by-products of alcohol metabolism. (everything2.com)
  • The other major component of the ECF is the intravascular fluid of the circulatory system called blood plasma. (wikipedia.org)
  • HUBS 192 will build on the principle of homeostasis developed in HUBS 191 with consideration of the five main body systems: cardiovascular, respiratory, gastrointestinal, renal/urinary and reproductive systems. (otago.ac.nz)
  • Plasma and interstitial fluid are very similar because water, ions, and small solutes are continuously exchanged between them across the walls of capillaries, through pores and capillary clefts. (wikipedia.org)
  • When sodium chloride enters the body, it dissociates almost completely into its constituent particles, the ions sodium and chloride. (encyclopedia.com)
  • Each membrane contains different transport proteins that allow the RPE to mediate the vectorial movement of metabolites, ions, and fluid between the subretinal space and the blood supply. (jneurosci.org)
  • The metabolic pathways (sequences of chemical transformations in the body), both of synthesis and of decomposition, have become known in considerable detail for most steroids present in mammals , and much research relates to control of these pathways and to the mechanisms by which steroid hormones exert their effects.
