The third stomach of ruminants, situated on the right side of the abdomen at a higher level than the fourth stomach and between this latter and the second stomach, with both of which it communicates. From its inner surface project large numbers of leaves or folia, each of which possesses roughened surfaces. In the center of each folium is a band of muscle fibers which produces a rasping movement of the leaf when it contracts. One leaf rubs against those on either side of it, and large particles of food material are ground down between the rough surfaces, preparatory to further digestion in the succeeding parts of the alimentary canal.

Polaprezinc protects gastric mucosal cells from noxious agents through antioxidant properties in vitro. (1/198)

BACKGROUND: Polaprezinc has been shown to exert an anti-oxidant property in a tube experiment, protect gastric mucosa from experimental ulcerations in vivo, and accelerate the healing of gastric ulcer in humans. AIM: To examine a possible protective effect of polaprezinc on oxidant-mediated injury in primary monolayer cultures of rat gastric fundic mucosa. METHODS: Cytotoxicity was quantified by measuring 51Cr release. Whether or not polaprezinc exerts an antioxidant property was investigated by determining the effect of this agent on hydrogen peroxide (H2O2)-induced injury. The effects of polaprezinc on superoxide (O2-. ) generation as well as on ethanol (EtOH)-induced injury were also examined. Generation of O2-. was assessed by the reduction in cytochrome c. RESULTS: H2O2 caused a time- and dose-dependent increase in 51Cr release. The dose-response curve of 51Cr release by H2O2 shifted to the right in the presence of polaprezinc. Polaprezinc, at submillimolar concentrations, prevented H2O2-induced 51Cr release. EtOH also caused a dose-dependent increase in 51Cr release, which was prevented by the addition of polaprezinc. The incubation of cells with EtOH caused an increase in cytochrome c reduction, as the concentrations of EtOH increased. Polaprezinc inhibited EtOH-induced cytochrome c reduction. Protection by polaprezinc was microscopically associated with the prevention of monolayer disruption. CONCLUSIONS: Polaprezinc is antioxidative and directly protects gastric mucosal cells from noxious agents through its antioxidant properties in vitro. This finding may provide the theoretical basis for the usage of an antiulcer drug with antioxidant properties for the treatment of gastric inflammation, such as that induced by ethanol.  (+info)

Polaprezinc, a mucosal protective agent, in combination with lansoprazole, amoxycillin and clarithromycin increases the cure rate of Helicobacter pylori infection. (2/198)

AIM: To evaluate the efficacy of polaprezinc, a mucosal protective agent, in combination with a 7-day triple therapy containing lansoprazole, amoxycillin and clarithromycin, as a treatment for Helicobacter pylori. METHODS: Sixty-six consecutive patients suffering from dyspeptic symptoms with H. pylori infection were randomly allocated to one of two regimens: one group (LAC; n = 31) received lansoprazole 30 mg b.d., amoxycillin 500 mg b.d. and clarithromycin 400 mg b.d. for 7 days. The other group (LACP; n = 35) received the LAC regimen plus polaprezinc 150 mg b.d. for 7 days. H. pylori status was evaluated by rapid urease test, histology and culture at entry and 4 weeks after treatment. RESULTS: Five patients did not complete the treatment: no follow-up endoscopy was performed on two patients in the LAC group; one patient in the LAC group and two in the LACP group had their treatment stopped due to severe diarrhoea. By per protocol analysis, H. pylori eradication was achieved in 24 of the 28 evaluable patients (86%; 95% CI: 72-100%) after LAC therapy, and in 33 of the 33 evaluable patients (100%) after LACP therapy (P < 0.05). On intention-to-treat analysis, the rates of eradication were 24 of 31 patients (77%; 95% CI: 62-93%) in the LAC group, and 33 of 35 patients (94%; 95% CI: 86-100%) in the LACP group (P < 0.05). CONCLUSION: A 7-day triple therapy with lansoprazole, amoxycillin and clarithromycin is effective in H. pylori eradication, but this regimen is significantly improved by the addition of polaprezinc.  (+info)

Carnosine stimulates vimentin expression in cultured rat fibroblasts. (3/198)

Two-dimensional electrophoretic gel profiles were compared between rat 3Y1 fibroblasts cultured in the presence and absence of 30 mM L-carnosine (beta-alanyl-L-histidine) for one week without any replenishment of medium. While a number of cellular proteins changed their expression levels by the addition of carnosine, we identified one of the most prominently varied proteins as vimentin. Immunoblot analysis with anti-vimentin antibody demonstrated that the vimentin levels increased about 2-fold after one-week culture in the presence of carnosine. We also confirmed that the increase of vimentin expression was dependent on the concentration of carnosine added to the medium. Moreover, when cultured cells were stained with anti-vimentin antibody and observed by light microscopy, most cells grown in the presence of carnosine were found to have markedly developed vimentin filaments. The increase of vimentin expression was also observed by adding with carnosine related dipeptides, N-acetylcarnosine and anserine.  (+info)

Polaprezinc down-regulates proinflammatory cytokine-induced nuclear factor-kappaB activiation and interleukin-8 expression in gastric epithelial cells. (4/198)

Gastric epithelial chemokine response is a primary factor in the induction of gastric inflammation associated with Helicobacter pylori infection. Because sustained inflammation is a risk for gastric mucosal damage, agents that down-regulate inflammatory responses may be of therapeutic significance. We examined the effect of polaprezinc, a potent antiulcer agent, on proinflammatory cytokine-induced interleukin (IL)-8 expression in gastric epithelial cells. Because IL-8 expression is regulated by the transcription factor nuclear factor-kappaB (NF-kappaB), we also examined the effect of polaprezinc on NF-kappaB activity. MKN28 cells were used as a model of gastric epithelial cells. Secreted IL-8 was quantified by IL-8 specific enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, and IL-8 mRNA expression was examined by Northern blot analysis. NF-kappaB activity was analyzed by electrophoretic mobility shift assay. Western blot analysis with anti-phospho-IkappaB-alpha antibody was performed to assess IkappaB-alpha phosphorylation. Polaprezinc-suppressed IL-8 secretion induced by tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha) or IL-1beta in a dose-dependent manner. IL-8 mRNA expression also was inhibited by polaprezinc. NF-kappaB activation in response to TNF-alpha, IL-1beta, phorbol ester, and H(2)O(2) was down-regulated by polaprezinc. Western blot analysis showed inhibition of TNF-alpha-induced IkappaB-alpha phosphorylation in the presence of polaprezinc. Collectively, these results suggest that polaprezinc is a novel type of anti-inflammatory agent that down-regulates inflammatory responses of gastric mucosal cells.  (+info)

Hydrogen peroxide-mediated Cu,Zn-superoxide dismutase fragmentation: protection by carnosine, homocarnosine and anserine. (5/198)

The fragmentation of human Cu,Zn-superoxide dismutase (SOD) was observed during incubation with H(2)O(2). Hydroxyl radical scavengers such as sodium azide, formate and mannitol protected the fragmentation of Cu,Zn-SOD. These results suggested that *OH was implicated in the hydrogen peroxide-mediated Cu,Zn-SOD fragmentation. Carnosine, homocarnosine and anserine have been proposed to act as anti-oxidants in vivo. We investigated whether three compounds could protect the fragmentation of Cu,Zn-SOD induced by H(2)O(2). The results showed that carnosine, homocarnosine and anserine significantly protected the fragmentation of Cu,Zn-SOD. All three compounds also protected the loss of enzyme activity induced by H(2)O(2). Carnosine, homocarnosine and anserine effectively inhibited the formation of *OH by the Cu,Zn-SOD/H(2)O(2) system. These results suggest that carnosine and related compounds can protect the hydrogen peroxide-mediated Cu,Zn-SOD fragmentation through the scavenging of *OH.  (+info)

Heme-dependent radical generation: possible involvement in antimalarial action of non-peroxide microbial metabolites, nanaomycin A and radicicol. (6/198)

Antimalarial screening was performed for microbial metabolites that simulate artemisinin in their mode of action, a potent antimalarial component of an herbal remedy with a characteristic peroxide structure. Nanaomycin A was identified in this screen as an antimalarial compound, together with radicicol and several other compounds already reported (J. Antibiotics 51: 153 approximately 160, 1998). Nanaomycin A inhibited in vitro growth of the human malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum with an IC80 value of 33.1 nM. It was as potent as radicicol and about 1/10 as potent as artemisinin. Studies on the mode of action suggested that the antimalarial action of the two non-peroxides, nanaomycin A and radicicol, involved heme-dependent radical generation, as is for the peroxide artemisinin. Namely, the inhibition of in vitro growth of malaria parasite by nanaomycin A or radicicol was reversed by tocopherol, a radical scavenger added to the assay mixture. Secondly, in a reaction system established for radical detection, in which a test radical donor and beta-alanylhistidine as a radical recipient were incubated with and without hemin, the two compounds caused heme-dependent decreases of beta-alanylhistidine, as did artemisinin. Among the 14 microbial metabolites identified during this screening, a correlation was observed between antimalarial activity and heme-dependent radical generating activity.  (+info)

Amino acid flux in ruminal and gastric veins of sheep: effects of ruminal and omasal injections of free amino acids and carnosine. (7/198)

The possibility of free amino acid (FAA) and peptide absorption across the ruminant stomach wall was studied in multicatheterized wethers fed every 12 h. During the last third of the feeding cycle, two intraruminal or intraomasal injections of solutions containing increasing amounts of Ser, Gly, Val, Met, Phe, Lys, and carnosine were successively performed. Before injections, a net uptake of each of these FAA was measured in the ruminal and the gastric veins. The ruminal injections produced a linear increase in ruminal FAA concentration. The highest ruminal concentrations (observed with 3 g of FAA and carnosine) ranged between 5 and 14 mM. After ruminal injections, Ser (P < .05), Gly (P < .05), Val (P < .05), Met (P < .10), and Lys (P < .10) uptake decreased and carnosine net release linearly increased (P < .05), suggesting absorption across the ruminal epithelium. Owing to the low net flux generated by high ruminal concentration, the ruminal epithelium permeability to these molecules seemed to be low. After omasal injections, net flux of injected FAA were not modified, suggesting a low permeability of the gastric epithelia to FAA. Carnosine net release linearily increased (P < .05) with increasing level of carnosine injection, indicating the possibility of dipeptide absorption at the gastric level. This study demonstrated in vivo that the stomach epithelia possess the capacity to absorb FAA and small peptides; however, the permeability of these epithelia to these molecules seemed limited.  (+info)

Effects of carnosine and related compounds on the stability and morphology of erythrocytes from alcoholics. (8/198)

The effects of carnosine and related compounds on erythrocytes from alcoholics were studied. In their presence, erythrocytes showed an increased ability to resist haemolysis and showed a more normal morphology, with carnosine and N-acetyl-carnosine being the most effective compounds. These beneficial properties of the dipeptides do not appear to be directly related to their antioxidant or buffering properties.  (+info)

The nervous tissue of many vertebrates, including humans, can synthesize beta-alanyl-L-histidine (carnosine). The biological functions of carnosine are still open to question, although several theories supported by strong experimental data have been proposed. The objective of this study was to examine the effects of carnosine on neurotoxicity in differentiated rat pheochromocytoma (PC12) cells. Neurotoxicity was induced by N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA), which caused time- and concentration-dependent cell death as measured by MTT and LDH assays. Pretreatment with carnosine significantly prevented the neurotoxicity in a concentration-dependent manner. The protective effect of carnosine was antagonized by the H1 receptor antagonist pyrilamine, but not by the H2 receptor antagonist cimetidine. In addition, alpha-fluoromethylhistidine, a histidine decarboxylase inhibitor, slightly reversed the protective action of carnosine. These results indicate that carnosine can effectively protect against NMDA-induced
The objective of this study was to examine the effect of carnosine on the hippocampal-dependent learning in perforant pathway/dentate gyrus synapses. The experiments were carried out on adult rats. A bipolar stimulating electrode was placed to the medial perforant path and a double-barrel glass micropipette was placed in the dentate gyrus as the recording electrode. Artificial cerebrospinal fluid (to control group) or carnosine (0.1, 1 mu g/mu L) was infused into the dentate gyrus via one of the barrels of the glass electrode. Our results showed that the I/O curve of excitatory postsynaptic potential (EPSP) slope or population spike (PS) amplitude was not significantly shifted by carnosine. Although carnosine infused prior to high-frequency stimulation (HFS) decreased the slope of EPSP and amplitude of PS, when infused after HFS, no effect was observed. In the present study, we speculated that carnosine decreased LTP by inhibiting sGC activation. The present experiment provides the first ...
Carnosine (β-alanyl-L-histidine) is a dipeptide abundant in mammalian skeletal muscles [1, 2]. Various physiological actions have been ascribed to carnosine in muscle, including acting as an antioxidant [3], regulating Ca2+ sensitivity [4], protecting proteins against glycation by acting as a sacrificial peptide [5], and preventing the formation of protein-protein cross links by reacting with protein-carbonyl groups [6]. Primarily, carnosine with pH buffering capacity is widely used in the field of sports nutrition [7]. Because the dissociation exponent (pKa) of carnosine is 6.83 [8, 9], it is suggested that carnosine attenuates the reduction in blood pH by a large amount of H+ originating from the dissociation of lactic acid during strenuous exercise, and suppresses a loss of force [10]. At the same time, muscle carnosine contents are positively correlated with high-intensity exercise performance [11] and fast-twitch muscle fibers [12]. Increase of muscle carnosine predominantly was due to the ...
Zinc L-carnosine (beta-alanyl-L-histidinato zinc) (N-(3-aminopropionyl)-L-histidinato zinc), often simply called zinc carnosine, and also known as polaprezinc, is a mucosal protective chelate compound of zinc and L-carnosine. It is a quadridentate 1:1 complex of a polymeric nature. It contains 23% zinc and 77% L-carnosine by mass. It is an approved drug in Japan where it is clinically used to treat gastric ulcers. Its mechanism of action is believed to oxygen radical scavenging, anti-oxidation, and acceleration of gastrointestinal wound healing. It exhibits ROS-quenching activities. It can remain in the stomach without rapid dissociation and adhere specifically to ulcerous lesions, after which L-carnosine and zinc are released to heal the ulcer. It has been shown to stimulate mucus production and to maintain the integrity of the gastric mucosal barrier. In summary, it maintains homeostasis of the gastric mucosa by prostaglandin-independent cytoprotective effects due to anti-oxidative membrane ...
L-Carnosine Reduces Glycation L-Carnosine is a dipeptide composed of the amino acids beta-alanine and L-histidine. It occurs naturally in muscle, brain and other tissues in high concentrations. In in vitro studies, L-carnosine reduced glycation, a process in which DNA and protein are damaged by glucose. The end products of glycation are highly reactive molecules called advanced glycation end products (AGEs), which can further damage proteins, lipids and nucleic acids. The accumulation of AGEs is associated with aging.

Carnosine (beta-alanyl-L-histidine) is found exclusively in animal tissues. It is a dipeptide of the amino acids beta-alanine and histidine. Carnosine has the potential to suppress many of the biochemical changes (e.g., protein oxidation, glycation, AGE formation, and cross-linking) that accompany aging and associated pathologies (PMID 16804013 ). It is highly concentrated in muscle and brain tissues. Some autistics patients take it as a dietary supplement, and attribute an improvement in their condition to it. Supplemental carnosine may increase corticosterone levels. This may explain the hyperactivity seen in autistic subjects at higher doses. Carnosine also exhibits some antioxidant effects. The antioxidant mechanism of carnosine is attributed to its chelating effect against metal ions, superoxide dismutase (SOD)-like activity, ROS and free radicals scavenging ability (PMID 16406688 ...

L-Carnosine is classified as a dipeptide, which is a combination of two amino acids, in this case alanine and histidine. It naturally occurs in high concentrations in skeletal muscle tissue, and therefore may support muscle vitality. L-Carnosine is also an antioxidant that stabilizes cellular membranes, protecting them from damage by free radicals.* Because L-Carnosine is only found in vertebrates, it is especially important for persons who do not consume beef, pork or chicken.
OBJECTIVE:. It is our hypothesis that L-carnosine treatment of persons with bipolar illness will improve their cognitive outcomes, more specifically, measures of attention and executive function, verbal and visuospatial memory and psychomotor performance, relative to placebo treatment. We also hypothesize that L-carnosine treatment may secondarily improve any residual affective symptoms.. RESEARCH PLAN:. We aim to test these hypotheses by conducting a randomized, placebo controlled, add on treatment trial of L-carnosine (added to ongoing prescribed pharmacological treatment, for example - lithium, anticonvulsants, antipsychotic agents and depressants) for a period of 12 weeks. Measures of cognition, and psychopathology will be utilized for evaluating primary and secondary outcomes, along with safety assessments.. METHODS:. Up to 48 subjects with DSM IV TR bipolar I disorder will be recruited from Western Psychiatric Institute and Clinic, Mayview State Hospital and Mon Yough Community Services, ...
Beta-Alanine is a precursor to the amino acid Carnosine, which functions as a lactic acid buffer capable of reducing fatigue in the working muscle. Though it takes time to accumulate in muscle tissue, Beta-Alanine supplementation, for at least two weeks, is highly effective at increasing muscular Carnosine concentration.. One study in particular that measured the Carnosine levels of sprinters found that individuals with higher muscular Carnosine levels exhibited higher power output in the latter half of a 30m sprint (because they had less lactic acid build-up). Multiple studies have confirmed that Beta Alanine supplementation increases muscular Carnosine in a dose dependent manner. In particular, a 2012 study published in Amino Acids found that subjects who consumed 1.6 or 3.2 grams of Beta Alanine daily experienced significant increases in muscle Carnosine in as little as two weeks, with the higher dose achieving a higher concentration of Carnosine. The doses used in this study, 1.6 and 3.2g, ...
High-intensity exercise leads to reductions in muscle substrates (ATP, PCr6, and glycogen) and a subsequent accumulation of metabolites (ADP, P, H(+), and Mg(+)) with a possible increase in free radical production. These factors independently and collectively have deleterious effects on muscle, with significant repercussions on high-intensity performance or training sessions. The effect of carnosine on overcoming muscle fatigue appears to be related to its ability to buffer the increased H(+) concentration following high-intensity work. Carnosine, however, has other roles such as an antioxidant, a metal chelator, a Ca(2+) and enzyme regulator, an inhibitor of protein glycosylation and protein-protein cross-linking. To date7comma; only 1 study has investigated the effects of carnosine supplementation (not in pure form) on exercise performance in human subjects and found no improvement in repetitive high-intensity work. Much data has come from in vitro work on animal skeletal muscle fibers or ...
Pure Beta Alanine Powder Review, Benefits, Best Doses and Negative Side Effects. Why use Beta-Alanine Supplements to Boost Muscle Carnosine Concentrations?
Alanine also directly affects levels of carnosine in the body. Carnosine is a unique dipeptide that interferes with the glycation process. Levels of carnosine decline with age and carnosine supplements are not readily absorbed. Alanine supplementation is more effective at upgrading stores of carnosine in the body.. A simple definition of glycation is the cross-linking of proteins and sugars to form non-functioning structures in the body. Advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) are formed when sugars react with proteins, such as collagen, an essential component of healthy skin, which comprises up to one-third of the bodys proteins and has a slow turnover rate. AGEs threaten healthy skin by increasing collagen breakdown and reducing collagens regenerative ability. The result is wrinkling and sagging skin. Carnosine effectively prevents glycation from damaging the structure of skin, thus keeping skin firm, elastic and youthful.. Muscle carnosine content is inversely related to age. After the age ...
The typical effects of beta alanine (BA) supplementation is evident by the results of a new study. The study involved 18 high level rowers who used BA for 7 weeks at a dose of 5 grams a day. Other rowers ingested a placebo for the same amount of time. Before and after supplementation, muscle carnosine levels were measured, and performance was evaluated in a 2000 meter ergometer test. The baseline test showed a strong correlation between muscle carnosine levels in the rowers and speed at various distances. After the BA supplementation, carnosine content increased by 45.3% in the soleus muscle (slow-twitch) and 28.2% in the gastrocnemius muscle (fast-twitch). Performance testing also showed that the BA group was 4.3 seconds faster than the placebo group. Prior to BA, they were 0.3 seconds slower. Muscle carnosine levels was positively correlated to 2000 meter rowing performance. As such, carnosine was able to increase speed in these elite athletes. Strength wasnt measured in the study, although ...
The objective of this study was to perform a systematic review and meta-analysis of the articles that addressed the effect BA or carnosine supplementation on physical exercise (PE)-induced oxidative stress (OS). Before May 2018 we searched throughout PubMed, CAPES Periodic and SPORTDiscus human model peer review, randomized control studies with chronic BA or carnosine supplementation on PE-induced OS. A total of 128 citations were found. Only four articles met criteria for inclusion. All four studies used healthy young sedentary, recreationally active or athletic participants. After a chronic BA or carnosine supplementation, the studies evaluated PE-induced OS both immediately and several hours after exercise (0.5 to 48 h). In response to PE-induced OS, when compared to placebo, BA/carnosine supplementation increased total antioxidant capacity [TAC; Effect Size (ES) = 0.35, 95% Confidence Interval (CI) 0.06 to 0.65, p = 0.02] and glutathione (GSH; ES = 0.75, 95% CI 0.32 to 1.19, p = 0.0007)
Neurological, neurodegenerative, and psychiatric disorders represent a serious burden because of their increasing prevalence, risk of disability, and the lack of effective causal/disease-modifying treatments. There is a growing body of evidence indicating potentially favourable effects of carnosine, which is an over-the-counter food supplement, in peripheral tissues. Although most studies to date have focused on the role of carnosine in metabolic and cardiovascular disorders, the physiological presence of this di-peptide and its analogues in the brain together with their ability to cross the blood-brain barrier as well as evidence from in vitro, animal, and human studies suggest carnosine as a promising therapeutic target in brain disorders. In this review, we aim to provide a comprehensive overview of the role of carnosine in neurological, neurodevelopmental, neurodegenerative, and psychiatric disorders, summarizing current evidence from cell, animal, and human cross-sectional, longitudinal studies,

This powerful dipeptide amino acid is a combination of histidine and beta-alanine, and found in high concentrations of skeletal tissues. With its strong antioxidant and free radical fighting properties, NOW L-Carnosine is a sound way to protect the bodys most vital building blocks from many forms of cellular damage. And as one of the most effective anti-carbonylation agents in use today, L-Carnosine may have a positive impact on our ability to slow the effects of age-related degeneration by hindering production of abnormal proteins.
This study reports the synthesis and characterization of novel ruthenium (II) complexes with the polydentate dipeptide, L-carnosine (2-[(3-aminopropanoyl)amino]-3-(1H-imidazol-5-yl)propanoic acid). Mixed-ligand complexes with the general composition [MLp(Cl)q(H2O)r]·xH2O (M = Ru(II); L = L-carnosine; p = 3 − q; r = 0-1; and x = 1-3) were prepared by refluxing aqueous solutions of the ligand with equimolar amounts of ruthenium chloride (black-alpha form) at 60 °C for 36 h. Physical properties of the complexes were characterized by elemental analysis, DSC/TGA, and cyclic voltammetry. The molecular structures of the complexes were elucidated using UV-Vis, ATR-IR, and heteronuclear NMR spectroscopy, then confirmed by density function theory (DFT) calculations at the B3LYP/LANL2DZ level. Two-dimensional NMR experiments (1H COSY, 13C gHMBC, and 15N gHMBC) were also conducted for the assignment of chemical shifts and calculation of relative coordination-induced shifts (RCIS) by the complex formed.

Treatment of low-dose aspirin (LDA)-induced small-bowel injury has not been established. Polaprezinc, a chelate of zinc and L-carnosine, may be efficacious for such injury. We conducted a pilot randomized controlled study to investigate whether polaprezinc is effective against LDA-induced small-bowel injuries. Consecutive patients under long-term (|3 months) LDA treatment and who agreed to participate in our study underwent initial capsule endoscopy (CE). Patients with LDA-induced small-bowel injury apparent upon initial CE (n = 20) were randomized into a polaprezinc (150 mg/day for 4 weeks) group and a control (no polaprezinc treatment) group. All underwent follow-up CE after 4 weeks. Changes in the number and characteristics of small-bowel mucosal injuries were compared within and between the two groups. The median number of reddened lesions and erosions/ulcers upon follow-up CE in the polaprezinc group significantly decreased (P | 0.05). However, there was no significant difference in the median

acids beta-alanine and histidine. It is highly concentrated in muscle and brain tissues.. Carnosine and carnitine were discovered by Russian chemist V.Gulevich.[2] Researchers in Britain,[3] South Korea,[4] Russia[5][6] and other countries[7][8][9] have shown that carnosine has a number of antioxidant properties that may be beneficial. Carnosine has been proven to scavenge reactive oxygen species (ROS) as well as alpha-beta unsaturated aldehydesformed from peroxidation of cell membrane fatty acids during oxidative stress.. Carnosine can oppose glycation[10][11] and it can chelate divalent metal ions. Chronic glycolysis is suspected to accelerate aging.[12] Carnosine was found to inhibit diabetic nephropathy by protecting the podocytes and mesangial cells.. Carnosine containing products are also used in topical preparations to reduce wrinkles on the skin.. Some studies have detected beneficial effects of N-acetylcarnosine in preventing and treating cataracts of the eyes; in one of these, ...

Urgent need exists for new therapeutic options in ischemic stroke. We recently demonstrated that carnosine, an endogenous dipeptide consisting of alanine and histidine, is robustly neuroprotective in ischemic brain injury and has a wide clinically relevant therapeutic time window. The precise mechanistic pathways that mediate this neuroprotective effect are not known. Following in vivo administration, carnosine is hydrolyzed into histidine, a precursor of histamine. It has been hypothesized that carnosine may exert its neuroprotective activities through the histidine/histamine pathway. Herein, we investigated whether the neuroprotective effect of carnosine is mediated by the histidine/histamine pathway using in vitro primary astrocytes and cortical neurons, and an in vivo rat model of ischemic stroke. In primary astrocytes, carnosine significantly reduced ischemic cell death after oxygen-glucose deprivation, and this effect was abolished by histamine receptor type I antagonist. However, ...

L-Carnosine is a natural dipeptide compound formed from the amino acids, beta-alanine and histidine. It has been shown to decrease cellular aging, improve the appearance of the skin, and protect the brain and eyes from oxidative damage.
The primary focus of the clinical research on carnosine has focused on its anti-aging effects as well as its effects on brain function.. In regards to general anti-aging effects, several clinical studies have highlighted the potential of carnosine in slowing down the aging process by preventing oxidative damage as well as glycation. In addition, carnosine has also been shown to directly and indirectly inhibits release of inflammatory mediators such as cytokines. Reducing silent inflammation is becoming another key target not only for an anti-aging strategy, but also to help prevent the development of chronic degenerative diseases like heart disease, diabetes, and neurodegenerative disorders like Parkinsons and Alzheimers disease. Given the unique actions of carnitine within the brain, it may be an ideal agent for preventing age-related declines in cognitive function and memory as well.. In regards to boosting brain power, several double-blind, placebo-controlled studies have looked at the use ...
Carnosinemia, also called carnosinase deficiency or aminoacyl-histidine dipeptidase deficiency, is a rare autosomal recessive metabolic disorder caused by a deficiency of carnosinase, a dipeptidase (a type of enzyme that splits dipeptides into their two amino acid constituents). Carnosine is a dipeptide composed of beta-alanine and histidine, and is found in skeletal muscle and cells of the nervous system. This disorder results in an excess of carnosine in the urine, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), blood and nervous tissue. Neurological disorders associated with a deficiency of carnosinase, and the resulting carnosinemia (carnosine in the blood) are common. A variety of neurological symptoms have been associated with carnosinemia. They include: hypotonia, developmental delay, mental retardation, degeneration of axons, sensory neuropathy, tremors, demyelinization, gray matter anomalies, myoclonic seizures, and loss of purkinje fibers. The gene for carnosinase is located on chromosome 18, an ...
During high intensity exercise, lactic acid is formed in the muscles and splits into lactate and hydrogen ions (H+). These H+ ions cause the blood to become more acidic (a drop in pH) which is one of the main causes of fatigue for this type of exercise. When this acid build up occurs, the muscle losses contractility and strength thus making it impossible to continue to exercise at the same intensity. Therefore, to cope with this acidity the body uses buffers and one of these buffers is called carnosine.. Carnosine it made up of histidine and beta-alanine. We have plenty of histidine in our body, but a lack of beta-alanine. Therefore it is this lack of beta-alanine which effects how much carnosine there is. Therefore, beta-alanine supplementation may help to increase the amount of muscle carnosine, a buffer of acidity in high intensity exercise. The body may therefore be able to cope with higher levels acidification.. Who can benefit from using Beta-Alanine?. Beta-alanine works in high intensity ...
Source of beta alanine in an easy-to-dose powder form Helps provide stronger training Enhances your performance during any kind of exercise May slow down ageing processes Increases physical endurance Delays the onset of fatigue QRP Nutrition Beta Alanine is a source of pure beta alanine which allows precise dosage of this potent, performance-enhancing amino acid. It increases endurance and thus allows you provide stronger training stim. Beta-alanine is an amino acid synthesised in the liver and a precursor to carnosine, i.e. a compound which is vital to homeostasis in the body. In food, it is found mainly in meat (beef, pork and poultry) and fish. Beta alanine levels affect the synthesis of carnosine. It is formed when L-histidine, another amino acid, binds to a beta-alanine molecule. Since carnosine cannot cross myocyte membranes, beta-alanine supplementation is the most effective way to boost its levels in the body. Enhanced training performance Carnosine acts as an acid-base buffer in e.g. muscle
This thesis reports on investigations on the structure and reactivity of dipeptide-alkali metal complexes, a series of ruthenium bearing catalysts, dysprosium based single molecule magnets and organometallic di-cobalt complexes. A variety of experimental and theoretical methods was used dependent on the problem: collision induced dissociation, hydrogen/deuterium exchange reactions, gas phase reactions with \(D_2\), infrared multiple-photon dissociation and the determination of minimum energy structures, IR absorption spectra, transition states and electronic transitions based on density functional theory. A case study was carried out to explore the influence of alkali metal ions on the gas phase structure of the dipeptide Carnosine. CID experiments on protonated Carnosine and its alkali metal complexes in an ion trap resulted in different fragment pathways dependent on the size of the alkali metal. The complexation of small ions (\(Li^+\) and \(Na^+\)) promoted the cleavage of bonds in the ...
A leading theory proposes that GWI/CMI is the result of wartime exposure to a variety of factors including vaccinations, various chemicals and stress. These factors initiate prolonged production of inflammation, free radicals, and the resulting injury to the brain, nervous system and muscle tissue. Since carnosine has been shown to protect the brain and muscle cells from the sort of damage underlying GWI/CMI, a double-blind, placebo-controlled study was designed to determine if nutritional supplementation with L-carnosine would significantly improve pain, cognition and fatigue in GWI. The 12-week study involved 25 GWI subjects who were given L-carnosine at 500, 1000 and 1500mg increasing at four-week intervals or a placebo. Primary outcomes included measures assessing cognitive function; feelings of fatigue and pain; and activity levels. The only measure that showed consistent benefit was the influence of carnosine supplementation on improving mental function ...
One of the most sought after nutritious supplements to hit the business sector recently has been beta-alanine. Essentially, beta-alanine is an ancestor to the compound carnosine; which, works by extinguishing the acidic environment made by working muscles. On the off chance that the cell environment inside of the muscle turns out to be excessively acidic, then the muscle quits working-the hypothesis is that carnosine constricts the onset of an acidic domain permitting you to accomplish more work (lift more weights, run quicker, and so on). As you can envision this has gotten many people in the wellness and execution industry energized, in light of the fact that the more work you can do and weights you can lift, the greater, speedier, and more grounded you can get to be.. Carnosine is one of the synthesized in the body utilizing beta alanine and histidine. Since there is a wealth of free histidine in the circulatory system, taking beta alanine will add to higher carnosine levels in the cells. ...
Using a double-lumen tube jejunal perfusion system in vivo, the mutual effects of carnosine (beta-alanyl-L-histidine) and glycylglycine on their respective absorption rates have been studied in six Zambian African adults. Data on the effect of the constituent amino-acids of carnosine on glycylglycine absorption rate have similarly been obtained. The solutions infused in each subject contained (A) carnosine (50 mmol l.-1), (B) carnosine (50 mmol l.-1) and glycylglycine (50 mmol l.-1), (C) glycylglycine (50 mmol l.-1), and (D) glycylglycine (50 mmol l.-1), L-histidine (50 mmol l.-1) and beta-alanine (50 mmol l.-1). Glycylglycine produced a significant impairment in the mean rate of histidine absorption from carnosine (P less than 0-01). However, carnosine did not have a significant effect on the mean rate of glycine absorption from glycylglycine. Mean rate of histidine absorption from solution D was significantly higher than that from solution A (P less than 0-01). Mean rate of glycine absorption ...
1. Serum carnosinase activity was assayed in a group of alcoholic patients with and without histologically proven atrophy of type II skeletal muscle fibres, and in control subjects. No significant activity was detected in muscle biopsy samples or washed erythrocytes.. 2. Serum carnosinase activity was significantly lower in chronic alcoholic patients compared with a group of age-matched controls. Alcoholics with abnormal muscle biopsies had significantly lower enzyme activities than either those patients with normal muscle biopsies or the controls. Serum enzyme activities in patients with normal muscle biopsies were not significantly different from controls.. 3. Serum carnosinase activity was inversely correlated with the degree of muscle atrophy as measured by the type II fibre atrophy factor. There was a positive correlation between the enzyme activity and skeletal muscle mass as reflected by the creatinine-height index. Furthermore, the enzyme activity significantly increased, with resolution ...

Imidazole dipeptides derive their name from the imidazole ring of histidine. Carnosine (beta alanine histidine) is found in skeletal muscles and the brain, where it may be a neurotransmitter. It is hydrolyzed by two isozymes. Cytosolic carnosinase displays a very broad dipeptidase activity but does not hydrolyze anserine or homocarnosine. Serum carnosinase, also found in the cerebrospinal fluid, hydrolyzes carnosine and anserine but hydrolyzes homocarnosine very poorly. Anserine (beta alanine-1-methylhistidine) is normally absent from human tissues and body fluids but may be derived from the diet and is found in patients with serum carnosinase deficiency. Homocarnosine (gamma aminobutyryl histidine) is a brain dipeptide. It is hydrolyzed by serum but not by cytosolic carnosinase. The ...

Im talking about beta-alanine, a naturally occurring, non-essential amino acid that may just give you the edge you need to take your training and results to the next level.. This performance-enhancing nutritional supplement has gained a lot of credit in the supplement word, and recent studies are proving it to be a very promising addition to your supplement stash. The science behind it makes sense, and it works. Lets take a closer look at this sport supplement.. The Science Behind It. Beta-alanine is found in the muscle of animal proteins. It is the beta form of the amino acid alanine, which muscle cells use to make carnosine. Carnosine controls the lactic acid from intense exercise. With intense exercise (muscular contraction), our bodies accumulate a large amount of hydrogen ions that cause our muscles pH to drop or become more ...
It works in conjunction with another compound to produce carnosine, which limits how much lactic acid builds up in your muscles during your workouts. This mechanism improves your stamina and capacity to do work. For instance, it lengthens a measure of fitness known as Time To Exhaustion (TTE), offers a clinically demonstrated benefit during short duration exercises, and may even elevate nitric oxide levels, which are associated with overall health and longevity. Beta-alanine also seems to be able to play a role in building lean muscle mass. Trials show that beta-alanine supplementation can help elderly men and women function better. Many animal and test tube studies hint at additional benefits, but these studies arent as powerful as clinical, double-blind trials.. ...
Introduction Fatigue is an unstoppable outcome to any intense training session or period of training. We can define fatigue as any drop in motor output during a session. Do not mistake fatigue for only something an endurance athlete feels during a run; fatigue includes a reduction in bar speed, falling short of a prescribed rep range, or performance decrements during a session of General Physical Prepardeness (GPP). A drop in motor output is inevitable and even failure will always eventually occur, however, we do have the ability to delay fatigue. As powerlifters delaying fatigue allows us to increase our total training volume or even perform a greater number of reps at a higher percentage of our max, thus leading us to greater strength and power gains. The Problem To Be Addressed The noted drop in motor output occurs as Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) is depleted and metabolites (H+ ions and therefore lactate) accumulate. As Hydrogen ion (H+) concentration increases due to the degradation of ATP, ...

was discovered 100 years ago, today it has been found to have uses in bodybuilding. Beta-Alanine is also known as 3-aminopropanoic acid. It should not be confused with alanine. Beta-Alanine is a non proteinogenic amino acid, which means it cannot be synthesized into a protein. Beta-Alanine can be found naturally in poultry and. beef.. Beta-Alanine research:. Dr. Roger Harris research, which later led to creatine on the market, has also now helped bring attention to beta-alanine. Research starting in 95 and. then by Harris in 98, showed that Beta-Alanine supplementation could help increase performance.

An N-formamido pyrrole- and imidazole-containing triamide (f-PIP) has been shown by DNase I footprinting, SPR, and CD studies to bind as a stacked dimer to its cognate sequences: 5-TACGAT-3 (5-flank of the inverted CCAAT box-2 of the human topoisomerase IIalpha promoter) and 5-ATCGAT-3. A gel shift experiment provided evidence for f-PIP to inhibit protein-DNA interaction at the ICB2 site. Western blot studies showed that expression of the topoisomerase IIalpha gene in confluent NIH 3T3 cells was induced by treatment with f-PIP. The results suggested that the triamide was able to enter the nucleus, interacted with the target site within ICB2, inhibited NF-Y binding, and activated gene expression.. ...

1. Recently, some cases have been reported where intravenous use of omeprazole was followed by loss of vision. We followed up a cohort of close to 140,000 persons during periods of treatment and non-treatment with five anti-ulcer drugs.. 2. The relative risk of vascular disorders of the eye during use of omeprazole compared with non-use was 1.8 (95% CI 0.5-6.0).

Although there have been question marks over beta-alanines effectiveness for enhancing sprinting power in trained athletes such as cyclists, the researchers in this study were left in no doubt about its efficacy, commenting: Beta-alanine supplementation was effective at improving repeated high-intensity cycling performance in both trained and non-trained individuals, highlighting its efficiency as an ergogenic aid for high-intensity exercise, regardless of the training status of the individual.. These findings fit well with previous research involving trained cyclists, which showed that average and peak power output during a sprint at the end of a 110-minute simulated race was increased by 5 per cent and 11.4 per cent respectively when the cyclists had supplemented with 2.4 grams per day of beta-alanine(1).. ...

Supplementation with beta-alanine has been shown to decrease fatigue in athletes, increase total muscular work performed and increase the concentration of carnosine in muscles. Multiple studies have demonstrated beta-alanines effectiveness but they also show that it should be used in conjunction with some form of creatine.

Now youre ready to look into supplements.. Heres what you should look for in a pre-workout.. Most Helpful:. Caffeine. Improves focus and helps mobilize fat tissue for oxidation. Caffeine is a pre-workout staple.. Read my post on caffeine for more info: How Using Caffeine Can Boost Your Workouts and Help You Focus. Creatine. Increases strength levels by replenishing Creatine Phosphate (CP) in the muscles more rapidly, allowing more strength and more reps, which equals more gains.. A high quality protein source, such as whey, casein, or egg protein. These provide plenty of Essential Amino Acids that kickstart the anabolic process and spare muscle.. Can Help, But The Jury Is Still Out:. Citrulline. An amino acid that enhances blood flow and Nitrous Oxide (NO) in the body. Can help with better pumps and nutrient flow.. Carnitine. In theory may help with fat oxidation during exercise, and also may help with recovery.. beta-Alanine. Needed for Carnosine production in the muscles, beta-Alanine may ...
Beta Alanine is a crucial precursor to carnosine, which facilitates the generation of nitric oxide, allowing access to intense muscle pumps from the very first dose.Beta Alanine also reduces oxidative stress, helping to maximize your aerobic and anaerobic endurance, delay muscular fatigue, and inhibit the accumulation
Beta-Alanine is the precursor to carnosine, which is a component that boosts strength and builds muscle. It increases physical performance dramatically when taken in the right doses.. L-Citurline turns into L-arginine and nitric oxide in your body, both of which increase blood flow and energy and give your immune system a boost.. Creatinol-O-Phosphate is a heart healthy component that keeps your blood pumping and your heart rate steady during rigorous workouts..

Sitting on the living room couch of a long-time friend, their dog was placed in my lap. Then I was handed a photograph of the dog taken months prior, showing obvious cataracts that appeared as white opacities where the normal black pupil space would be. Older dogs are often plagued by cataracts.. I was then asked to look at the eyes of the same dog in my lap. There were no white opaque cataracts I could visualize. They had vanished.. My friends told me their veterinarian had prescribed a special amino acid (carnosine) eye drop which had eradicated their dogs cataracts in a relatively swift manner. Why dont we do that for humans?. It is obvious that there is no financial incentive for eye doctors, optometrists or ophthalmologists, to prescribe eye drops which may prevent cloudy cataracts in humans. Modern cataract removal and lens implant surgery is so safe and effective (95% will experience improved vision along with functional improvement in vision - sewing, driving, reading). Why prescribe ...

Im not convinced that its cooking that made us human. Why? Because the slope of the brain expansion curve has been set off before the evidence of large fire exploiting. Second, DHA , the key nutrient foe brain expansion starts to be degradated at 60 C degrees, and if its true that a large consumption of that made us human it suggests that its not a burned steak that allowed such brain expansion and far less cooked starch. The same error, its more about nutrients than calories themselves and starchy tubers are just backup foods when meat was not available rather than an inportant key nutrient for brain expansion. Tubers dont have the nutrient density of meat, especially organ meats as described by the table from Lalonde, and furthermore they lack of DHA, B12 and aminoacids like taurin, carnitine, carnosine etc…how can they made us human? And the last evidence is that at the transition of agriculture every stuff was cooked, but starch from grains was not enough to sustain big brains, ...
As long as your keep away nutrition information on beef and broccoli sugar infused, breaded, or deep fried imitations of uncooked fruits and nutrition information on beef and broccoli, you will be simply wonderful..
