L-Ascorbic acid potentiates nitric oxide synthesis in endothelial cells. (1/917)

Ascorbic acid has been shown to enhance impaired endothelium-dependent vasodilation in patients with atherosclerosis by a mechanism that is thought to involve protection of nitric oxide (NO) from inactivation by free oxygen radicals. The present study in human endothelial cells from umbilical veins and coronary arteries investigates whether L-ascorbic acid additionally affects cellular NO synthesis. Endothelial cells were incubated for 24 h with 0.1-100 microM ascorbic acid and were subsequently stimulated for 15 min with ionomycin (2 microM) or thrombin (1 unit/ml) in the absence of extracellular ascorbate. Ascorbate pretreatment led to a 3-fold increase of the cellular production of NO measured as the formation of its co-product citrulline and as the accumulation of its effector molecule cGMP. The effect was saturated at 100 microM and followed a similar kinetics as seen for the uptake of ascorbate into the cells. The investigation of the precursor molecule L-gulonolactone and of different ascorbic acid derivatives suggests that the enediol structure of ascorbate is essential for its effect on NO synthesis. Ascorbic acid did not induce the expression of the NO synthase (NOS) protein nor enhance the uptake of the NOS substrate L-arginine into endothelial cells. The ascorbic acid effect was minimal when the citrulline formation was measured in cell lysates from ascorbate-pretreated cells in the presence of known cofactors for NOS activity. However, when the cofactor tetrahydrobiopterin was omitted from the assay, a similar potentiating effect of ascorbate pretreatment as seen in intact cells was demonstrated, suggesting that ascorbic acid may either enhance the availability of tetrahydrobiopterin or increase its affinity for the endothelial NOS. Our data suggest that intracellular ascorbic acid enhances NO synthesis in endothelial cells and that this may explain, in part, the beneficial vascular effects of ascorbic acid.  (+info)

Effect of ornithine and lactate on urea synthesis in isolated hepatocytes. (2/917)

1. In hepatocytes isolated from 24 h-starved rats, urea production from ammonia was stimulated by addition of lactate, in both the presence and the absence of ornithine. The relationship of lactate concentration to the rate of urea synthesis was hyperbolic. 2. Other glucose precursors also stimulated urea production to varying degrees, but none more than lactate. Added oleate and butyrate did not stimulate urea synthesis. 3. Citrulline accumulation was largely dependent on ornithine concentration. As ornithine was increased from 0 to 40 mM, the rate of citrulline accumulation increased hyperbolically, and was half-maximal when ornithine was 8-12 mM. 4. The rate of citrulline accumulation was independent of the presence of lactate, but with pyruvate the rate increased. 5. The rate of urea production continued to increase as ornithine was varied from 0 to 40 mM. 6. It was concluded that intermediates provided by both ornithine and lactate are limiting for urea production from ammonia in isolated liver cells. It was suggested that the stimulatory effect of lactate lies in increased availability of cytosolic aspartate for condensation with citrulline.  (+info)

Hepatocyte gene therapy in a large animal: a neonatal bovine model of citrullinemia. (3/917)

The development of gene-replacement therapy for inborn errors of metabolism has been hindered by the limited number of suitable large-animal models of these diseases and by inadequate methods of assessing the efficacy of treatment. Such methods should provide sensitive detection of expression in vivo and should be unaffected by concurrent pharmacologic and dietary regimens. We present the results of studies in a neonatal bovine model of citrullinemia, an inborn error of urea-cycle metabolism characterized by deficiency of argininosuccinate synthetase and consequent life-threatening hyperammonemia. Measurements of the flux of nitrogen from orally administered 15NH4 to [15N]urea were used to determine urea-cycle activity in vivo. In control animals, these isotopic measurements proved to be unaffected by pharmacologic treatments. Systemic administration of a first-generation E1-deleted adenoviral vector expressing human argininosuccinate synthetase resulted in transduction of hepatocytes and partial correction of the enzyme defect. The isotopic method showed significant restoration of urea synthesis. Moreover, the calves showed clinical improvement and normalization of plasma glutamine levels after treatment. The results show the clinical efficacy of treating a large-animal model of an inborn error of hepatocyte metabolism in conjunction with a method for sensitively measuring correction in vivo. These studies will be applicable to human trials of the treatment of this disorder and other related urea-cycle disorders.  (+info)

Arginine biosynthesis in Neisseria gonorrhoeae: enzymes catalyzing the formation of ornithine and citrulline. (4/917)

Many of the Neisseria gonorrhoeae strains isolated from patients require arginine for growth in a defined medium. As a basis for genetic studies of these Arg- strains, we examined two biosynthetic enzymes of Arg+ (nonrequiring) gonococci. Cell-free extracts contained (i) glutamate acetyltransferase, which catalyzes the formation of L-ornithine from alpha-N-acetyl-L-ornithine, and (ii) ornithine transcaramylase, which catalyzes the reaction between L-ornithine and carbamyl phosphate, yielding L-citrulline. Arg- strains were unable to utilze alpha-N-acetyl-L-ornithine for growth lacked significant activity of glutamate acetyltransferase, and activity was gained by Arg+ clones derived by DNA-mediated transformation. Some of the Arg- patient isolates were unable to use either alpha-N-acetyl-L-ornithine or L-ornithine in place of arginine, and two separate steps of genetic transformation were required to yield Arg+ cells. Extracts of these doubly auxotrophic cells lacked glutamate acetyltransferase activity, but, unexpectedly, they displayed normal ornithine transcarbamylase activity. This finding illustrates the importance of identifying the products specified by arg loci during genetic studies of arginine auxotrophy.  (+info)

Effects of ethanol on intraovarian nitric oxide production in the prepubertal rat. (5/917)

Nitric oxide (NO) has been shown to contribute to ovarian development and function. In non-ovarian tissues NO can be altered by ethanol (ETOH), a drug considered to be a gonadal toxin in men as well as male and female rats. The present study was undertaken to determine if some of the detrimental effects of chronic ETOH exposure on prepubertal ovarian function could be due to ETOH-induced alterations in the intraovarian NO system. Rats were implanted with intragastric cannulae on day 24 and began receiving control or ETOH diets on day 29. All rats were killed on day 34, determined to be in the late juvenile stage of development, and their ovaries and blood were collected. We analyzed the expression of the two constitutive forms of nitric oxide synthase (NOS), i.e. neuronal (n) NOS and endothelial (e) NOS, as well as the inducible (i) form of NOS protein in the ovaries of control and ETOH-treated rats by Western immunoblotting. Results demonstrate that eNOS protein increased markedly (P<0.02; 140 kDa) in ETOH-treated rats compared with controls. ETOH treatment did not alter the protein expression of nNOS (155 kDa) and only slightly increased that of iNOS (130 kDa). We also assessed NOS activity as determined by nitrite accumulation and by the conversion of L-[14C]arginine to L-[14C]citrulline. In this regard, the ETOH-treated animals showed an increase in ovarian nitrite generation (P<0.05), as well as an increase in ovarian citrulline formation (P<0.0001), when compared with control animals. Along with the above described ETOH-induced increases in ovarian eNOS and NO activity, the serum levels of estradiol were concomitantly suppressed (P<0.001) in the ETOH-treated rats. These results demonstrate for the first time the ETOH-induced changes in the prepubertal ovarian NO/NOS system, and suggest that these alterations contribute to the detrimental actions of the drug on prepubertal ovarian development and function.  (+info)

Cholinergic and GABAergic regulation of nitric oxide synthesis in the guinea pig ileum. (6/917)

Nitric oxide (NO) synthesis was examined in intact longitudinal muscle-myenteric plexus preparations of the guinea pig ileum by determining the formation of [3H]citrulline during incubation with [3H]arginine. Spontaneous [3H]citrulline production after 30 min was 80-90 dpm/mg, which constituted approximately 1% of the tissue radioactivity. Electrical stimulation (10 Hz) led to a threefold increase in [3H]citrulline formation. Removal of calcium from the medium or addition of NG-nitro-L-arginine strongly inhibited both spontaneous and electrically induced production of [3H]citrulline. TTX reduced the electrically induced but not spontaneous [3H]citrulline formation. The electrically induced formation of [3H]citrulline was diminished by (+)-tubocurarine and mecamylamine and enhanced by scopolamine, which suggests that endogenous ACh inhibits, via muscarinic receptors, and stimulates, via nicotinic receptors, the NO synthesis in the myenteric plexus. The GABAA receptor agonist muscimol and GABA also reduced the electrically evoked formation of [3H]citrulline, whereas baclofen was without effect. Bicuculline antagonized the inhibitory effect of GABA. It is concluded that nitrergic myenteric neurons are equipped with GABAA receptors, which mediate inhibition of NO synthesis.  (+info)

Nitric oxide production is reduced in patients with chronic renal failure. (7/917)

In patients with chronic renal failure (CRF), atherosclerosis is a major cause of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Generally, atherosclerosis has been associated with a reduced bioavailability of nitric oxide (NO). Experimental studies have indicated the presence of enhanced NO degradation by reactive oxygen species as well as decreased NO production as possible causes for this reduced NO bioavailability. So far, the question whether or not NO production is impaired in patients with CRF has never been investigated. Therefore, we measured whole body NO production in 7 patients with CRF, and in 7 matched healthy subjects. To assess the relative importance of a dysfunction of NO synthase (NOS), we compared the NO production of these patients to that of 2 other groups known to have endothelial dysfunction, ie, 7 patients with familial hypercholesterolemia (FH) who did not yet have signs of clinical cardiovascular disease (all nonsmokers), and 5 cigarette smokers. These groups were also compared with 7 nonsmoking, age-matched healthy subjects. Whole body NO production, determined as in vivo arginine-to-citrulline conversion, was assessed by giving an intravenous infusion of [15N2]-arginine as a substrate for NOS and measuring isotopic plasma enrichment of [15N]-citrulline by LC-MS. NO production in the CRF patients (0.13+/-0.02 micromol. kg-1. h-1) was significantly lower (P<0.05) than in the corresponding control group (0.23+/-0.09 micromol. kg-1. h-1). NO production also tended to be lower in the FH patients (0.16+/-0.04 micromol. kg-1. h-1), but the difference with the corresponding control group did not reach significance (0.22+/-0.06 micromol. kg-1. h-1). In the group of smokers, NO production was similar to that in nonsmokers (0. 22+/-0.09 micromol. kg-1. h-1). In conclusion, it is demonstrated for the first time that basal whole body NO production is reduced in patients with CRF. This finding implies that therapeutic interventions to endothelial dysfunction in these patients should be primarily directed toward improvement of NO production. The finding of only a tendency toward reduction of NO production in patients with FH and the absence of a reduction in cigarette smokers suggests that other mechanisms such as enhanced NO degradation may be involved in the decrease of NO bioavailability in these groups.  (+info)

Lactate inhibits citrulline and arginine synthesis from proline in pig enterocytes. (8/917)

Hypocitrullinemia and hypoargininemia but hyperprolinemia are associated with elevated plasma concentration of lactate in infants. Because the small intestine may be a major organ for initiating proline catabolism via proline oxidase in the body and is the major source of circulating citrulline and arginine in neonates, we hypothesized that lactate is an inhibitor of intestinal synthesis of citrulline and arginine from proline. To test this hypothesis, jejunum was obtained from 14-day-old suckling pigs for preparation of enterocyte mitochondria and metabolic studies. Mitochondria were used for measuring proline oxidase activity in the presence of 0-10 mM L-lactate. For metabolic studies, enterocytes were incubated at 37 degrees C for 30 min in Krebs bicarbonate buffer (pH 7.4) containing 5 mM D-glucose, 2 mM L-glutamine, 2 mM L-[U-14C]proline, and 0, 1, 5, or 10 mM L-lactate. Kinetics analysis revealed noncompetitive inhibition of intestinal proline oxidase by lactate (decreased maximal velocity and unaltered Michaelis constant). Lactate had no effect on either activities of other enzymes for arginine synthesis from proline or proline uptake by enterocytes but decreased the synthesis of ornithine, citrulline, and arginine from proline in a concentration-dependent manner. These results demonstrate that lactate decreased intestinal synthesis of citrulline and arginine from proline via an inhibition of proline oxidase and provide a biochemical basis for explaining hyperprolinemia, hypocitrullinemia, and hypoargininemia in infants with hyperlactacidemia.  (+info)

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Disease-associated factors influence parenteral support (PS) reduction in response to teduglutide in patients with intestinal failure associated-short bowel syndrome (SBS-IF). We sought to determine correlative relationships between plasma citrulline levels, small bowel length, and PS volume.. METHODS: A post hoc analysis of plasma citrulline levels from patients in the STEPS 24-week study of teduglutide in patients with SBS-IF. Plasma citrulline was assessed in all patients; patients were stratified 3 times into subgroups based on bowel anatomy, cause of SBS-IF, and baseline PS volumes. Correlation analyses used simple linear regression models. Statistical comparisons between study groups were conducted using 2-sided t tests for 2 independent mean differences.. RESULTS: Baseline plasma citrulline correlated with remnant small bowel length (r = 0.355, P = 0.002), but not with baseline PS volume (r = -0.167, P = 0.14), in the overall population. There was a robust correlation ...
1.Arginine can be produced in the kidney from citrulline. An important source of circulating citrulline is the intestinal breakdown of glutamine. Consequently, partial enterectomy leads to decreased plasma citrulline levels. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of diminished arterial citrulline levels on renal arginine production and total-body free arginine pools.. 2.Renal amino acid metabolism was studied 24 ;h after 75% small bowel resection in rats fasted overnight (16 ;h) (n = 12; total fast 40 ;h). Sham-operated (n = 9) and non-operated 16-h and 40-h fasted controls were studied in parallel (n = 8/n = 7). During anaesthesia, l-(2,3-3H)-arginine and para-aminohippuric acid were infused until steady state. Subsequently, arterial and renal venous blood samples were taken. Concentrations of para-aminohippurate and amino acids and specific activity of arginine and citrulline were measured to calculate renal plasma flow, net renal uptake or release, and unidirectional ...
Since the first description of citrulline as a potential marker for intestinal function in 1998, its use has been investigated in a variety of disease processes including Short Bowel Syndrome, Celiac disease, chemotherapy and radiation induced intestinal injury, infections producing intestinal cytopathic effects like Adenovirus, and predicting rejection in intestinal transplantation. The use of citrulline levels as a diagnostic tool to predict gastrointestinal disease in the premature population has not been properly addressed.. The introduction of enteral nutrition in the premature infant is a process of trial and error, knowing that the immaturity of the gastrointestinal system may lead to frequent episodes of feeding intolerance. This is augmented by the fear of the development of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) once feeds are commenced. NEC is a condition characterized by disruption of the intestinal epithelial barrier, a pathogenic process shared with some of the conditions mentioned above ...
Rat peritoneal macrophages were incubated in the presence of 0.05-1.0 mM-[14C]citrulline. The synthesis of [14C]arginine from 0.1 mM-[14C]citrulline was about 300 pmol/h per 10(6) cells in macrophages from saline-injected (control) rats. Both arginine synthesis from citrulline and nitrate production (an indicator of NO generation) were increased about 3-fold in the cells from lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-treated animals. The arginine synthesis was very sensitive to extracellular citrulline concentration in the range found in plasma (0.05-0.1 mM). The rate of arginine synthesis from citrulline was inhibited by about 20% by 0.5 mM-L-glutamine in both control and LPS-treated rat cells, but was inhibited by 0.5 mM-L-arginine only in control cells. Our results demonstrate that citrulline, produced by NO synthetase, can be recycled to arginine in macrophages. The citrulline-arginine cycle may contribute to the regulation of intracellular availability of arginine and thus the prolonged production of NO by ...
Citrullination, the post-translational conversion of arginines to citrullines, may contribute to rheumatoid arthritis development given the generation of anti-citrullinated protein antibodies (ACPAs). However, it is not known which peptidylarginine deiminase (PAD) catalyzes the citrullination seen in inflammation. PAD4 exacerbates inflammatory arthritis and is critical for neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs). NETs display citrullinated antigens targeted by ACPAs and thus may be a source of citrullinated protein. However, PAD4 is not required for citrullination in inflamed lungs. PAD2 is important for citrullination in healthy tissues and is present in NETs, but its role in citrullination in the inflamed joint, NETosis and inflammatory arthritis is unknown. Here we use mice with TNFα-induced inflammatory arthritis, a model of rheumatoid arthritis, to identify the roles of PAD2 and PAD4 in citrullination, NETosis, and arthritis. In mice with TNFα-induced arthritis, citrullination in the ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Plasma arginine and ornithine are the main citrulline precursors in mice infused with arginine-free diets. AU - Marini, Juan C.. AU - Didelija, Inka Cajo. AU - Castillo, Leticia. AU - Lee, Brendan. PY - 2010/8/1. Y1 - 2010/8/1. N2 - Dietary arginine is the main dietary precursor for citrulline synthesis, but it is not known if other precursors can compensate when arginine is absent in the diet. To address this question, the contributions of plasma and dietary precursors were determined by using multitracer protocols in conscious mice infused i.g. either an arginine-sufficient diet [Arg(+)] or an arginine-free diet [Arg(2)]. The plasma entry rate of citrulline and arginine did not differ between the 2 diet groups (156 ± 6 and 564 ± 30 μmol·kg-1·h-1, respectively); however, the entry rate of ornithine was greater in the mice fed the Arg(+) than the Arg(-) diet (332 ± 33 vs. 180 ± 16 μmol·kg -1·h-1). There was a greater utilization of plasma ornithine for the synthesis of ...

INTRODUCTION: Smoking is a well-established risk factor for rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and it has been proposed that smoking-induced citrullination renders autoantigens immunogenic. To investigate this mechanism, we examined human lung tissue from 40 subjects with defined smoking status, with or without chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and control tissues from other organs for citrullinated proteins and the deiminating enzymes peptidylarginine deiminase type-2 (PAD2) and -4 (PAD4). METHODS: Lung tissue samples, dissected from lobectomy specimens from 10 never smokers, 10 smokers without airflow limitation, 13 COPD smokers and eight COPD ex-smokers, and control tissue samples (spleen, skeletal muscle, liver, ovary, lymph node, kidney and heart), were analysed for citrullinated proteins, PAD2 and PAD4 by immunoblotting. Citrulline and homocitrulline residues in enolase and vimentin were analysed by partial purification by gel electrophoresis followed by mass spectrometry in 12 of the lung

Another well-known aspect of citrulline is the breakdown of citrulline into L-arginine. L-arginine then can be converted into nitric oxide and increase blood flow. In a small study of only 8 men, supplementing with 2 and 15g of citrulline increased arginine levels in the blood, and in a dose dependent manner13.. In a double-blind placebo-controlled trial of healthy men, citrulline supplementation did in fact increase serum nitric oxide and decrease a measure of arterial stiffness, indicating possible vasorelaxation14.. Given the large effect of citrulline on cardiovascular parameters and recent evidence from individuals with heart failure, L-citrulline may be an ideal supplement for individuals with cardiovascular problems15. Besides changes in fatigue, soreness, and cardiovascular parameters there may be some positive effect of citrulline supplementation on growth hormone.. In one double-blind placebo-controlled study conducted in 17 young men, 6 grams of citrulline prior to exercise increased ...

Objective: To investigate the dynamics of IgG1 and IgG4 anti-citrullinated protein antibodies (ACPA) subclasses during anti-TNF treatment in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA).. Methods: IgG, IgG1 and IgG4 ACPA levels were determined by ELISA on citrullinated fibrinogen (ACF) and IgG1:IgG4 ACPA ratios were calculated. A pilot study was performed in 28 ACF positive patients treated with infliximab for one year. Confirmation of the results was obtained using a cohort of 180 consecutive patients treated with adalimumab for 28 weeks.. Results: The median reduction in ACF levels was 31% for total IgG, 29% for IgG1, 40% for IgG4 and 22% for the IgG4:IgG1 ACF ratio in the infliximab cohort. In the adalimumab treated patients, ACF levels declined 14% for total IgG and IgG1, and 36% for IgG4 ACF; the IgG4:IgG1 ratio was reduced by 24% (all percentage values P , 0.05). The decrease in antibody levels was correlated with the clinical response; EULAR good responders had the greatest decline in antibody ...
Methods A strong and specific association between autoantibodies against citrullinated proteins and serum markers for osteoclast-mediated bone resorption was found in the serum of RA patients. Moreover, human osteoclasts expressed enzymes eliciting protein citrullination such as PAD2 and revealed specific inducible N-terminal citrullination of vimentin during their differentiation process. Affinity purified human autoantibodies against mutated citrullinated vimentin (MCV) not only bound to the osteoclast surface, but also lead to a robust induction of osteoclastogenesis and bone resorptive activity. Adoptive transfer of human MCV antibodies into RAG1-/- mice was followed by induction of osteopenia and increased osteoclastogenesis in vivo. This effect was based on the inducible release of TNFa from osteoclast precursors and the subsequent increase of CD11b+ osteoclast precursor cell numbers with enhanced expression of RANK and CSF1 receptors in vivo.. ...
Autoantibodies directed against citrulline-containing proteins have an impressive specificity of nearly 100% in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and have been suggested to be involved in the disease pathogenesis. The targeted epitopes are generated by a post-translational modification catalysed by the calcium-dependent enzyme peptidyl arginine deiminase (PAD), which converts positively charged arginine to polar but uncharged citrulline. The aim of this study was to explore the effects of citrullination on the immunogenicity of autoantigens as well as on potential arthritogenicity. Thus, immune responses to citrullinated rat serum albumin (Cit-RSA) and to unmodified rat serum albumin (RSA) were examined as well as arthritis development induced by immunisation with citrullinated rat collagen type II (Cit-CII) or unmodified CII. In addition, to correlate the presence of citrullinated proteins and the enzyme PAD4 with different stages of arthritis, synovial tissues obtained at different time points from
Five mammalian peptidylarginine deiminases (PADs), PAD1-4 and PAD6, each with a defined tissue distribution, mediate citrullination of arginine in the presence of sufficient concentrations of Ca2+ (reviewed in Ref.26). Interestingly, PAD enzymes were found in monocytes (PAD4) and macrophages (PAD2 and PAD4) in synovial fluid (27), indicating that they could be involved in citrullination of synovial proteins once they become activated. Indeed, it has been shown that citrullination of synovial proteins is an active process during inflammation (28, 29) and that several citrullinated proteins, such as fibrin (30), can be found in the RA synovium. Together with citrullinated proteins in the inflamed joint, B cells actively secreting ACPA have been detected in synovial fluid and synovium from RA patients (31, 32) but not in peripheral blood or in healthy controls. The presence of IgM ACPA-secreting B cells in synovial fluid is indicative of a continuous activation of B cells specific for citrullinated ...
Objective Production of anticitrullinated protein antibodies (ACPAs) is an important biomarker for rheumatoid arthritis (RA). We undertook this study to determine whether genetic factors (HLADRB1 alleles) are associated with extreme ACPA levels in individuals with ACPA-positive RA, and to ascertain whether there are any phenotypic characteristics associated with these subgroups of RA. Methods HLADRB1 allelic groups were genotyped in 1,073 ACPA-positive RA patients from the Swedish Epidemiological Investigation of Rheumatoid Arthritis study. We found that 283 patients (26.4%) had high ACPA levels (defined as ,1,500 units/ml using the Euro-Diagnostica anti-CCP2 test), while the rest of the patients had moderate ACPA levels and served as the comparison group. A replication group consisted of 235 RA patients. Results No significant differences in baseline disease activity were observed between patients with high and those with moderate ACPA levels. However, the HLADRB1*15 allele was associated with ...

Background: A novel protein post-translational modification, citrullination was shown previously in a number of key myofilament proteins, tropomyosin (R 133, R 238), actin (R 39) and myosin heavy chain (R 1176, 1303, 1434) in HF patient (values for total spectra counts for citrullinated proteins in control, ISHD and IDCM: 1.8 ±1.3, 3.2±2.7 and 2.3±1.9, respectively). The alterations in contractile proteins underlying enhanced Ca2+-sensitivity of the contractile apparatus in end-stage failing human myocardium are still not resolved. Protein citrullination arises from the enzymatic conversion of arginine residues to citrulline result in loss of a positive charge and reduction in hydrogen-bonding ability. And here, the biophysical and biochemical effect on myofilament function is determined.. Method: F-actin-tropomyosin binding, tropomyosin-actin-myosin, actin-myosin and myosin ATPase activity assays, and F-actin stability assays were carried out.. Results: In vitro citrullinated tropomyosin ...
RESULTS: 19.5% of plasmablast-derived antibodies from CCP-positive RA patients, but none from the CCP-negative RA patient or healthy controls, specifically recognized citrullinated antigens. The immunoglobulin genes encoding these ACPAs were highly mutated with increased replacement/silent mutation ratios, suggesting the involvement of active antigen selection in ACPA generation. Interestingly, 63% of the ACPAs cross-reacted with OMAs and/or citrullinated enolase from P. gingivalis. The reactivity of ACPAs against citrullinated proteins from P. gingivalis was confirmed by immuno blot and mass spectrometry. Furthermore, germ-line reversions of some ACPAs completely eliminated their reactivity to citrullinated human antigens but retained their reactivity to P. gingivalis ...
Antibodies targeting citrullinated proteins (ACPAs [anticitrullinated protein antibodies]) are commonly found in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA), strongly associate with distinct HLA-DR alleles, and predict a more aggressive disease course as compared with seronegative patients. Still, many features of these antibodies, including their site of production and the extent of MHC class II-driven T cell help, remain unclarified. To address these questions, we have used a single B cell-based cloning technology to isolate and express immunoglobulin (Ig) genes from joint-derived B cells of active RA patients. We found ∼25% of synovial IgG-expressing B cells to be specific for citrullinated autoantigens in the investigated ACPA + RA patients, whereas such antibodies were not found in ACPA − patients. The citrulline-reactive monoclonal antibodies did not react with the unmodified arginine peptides, yet several reacted with more than one citrullinated antigen. A role for active antigen ...
Practical applications - What the scientists say: Although citrulline malate supplements are marketed to improve muscle performance via a reduction in lactic acid and ammonia production, the current study does not fully support this assertion. While our investigation did note improved muscle performance occurring during the strength protocol,blood lactate remained indifferent comparing the citrulline malate treatment to the placebo treatment. The known capacity of citrulline malate to increase plasma L-arginine (Hickner. 2006), act as a buffer to lactate and hyperammonemia (Briand. 1992; Giannesini. 2011; Verleye. 1995) remain valid; however, further research is necessary to determine which mechanism may be directly attributed ergogenic effects occurring during resistance training protocols. Finally, specific investigations utilizing training protocols designed to test muscular strength and power are warranted. (Wax. 2014 ...

The Citrulline is basically the amino acid which is produced naturally within the human body. However you can also consume Citrulline from additional supplements which will help in increasing the levels of Citrulline in your body which is beneficial in increasing the performance during workouts and exercises. One of the impact that Citrulline has on the body is it increases the flow of blood to the tissues of the body. When you compare this in the context of workouts, the intake of Citrulline helps in supplying your exercising muscles with the required nutrients as well as oxygen that is required for optimum performance.. One of the research conducted found out that cyclists who took Citrulline lasted 12% longer before getting exhausted in comparison to those who were on placebo. Another study found out that the Citrulline has positive impact on the upper body for training purposes. The participants who took Citrulline were able to perform 53% more of the repetitions in comparison to those who ...
Autoantibodies directed against citrullinated epitopes of proteins are highly diagnostic of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and elevated levels of protein citrullination can be found in the joints of RA patients. Although the pathophysiological mechanisms and the cell type(s) responsible for the increase in protein citrullination remain incompletely understood, the neutrophil is emerging as a prime suspect. Here we report that fully viable resting neutrophils from healthy donors have enzymatically active PAD4 exposed on their surface and that they spontaneously secrete enzymatically active PAD2. Activation of the neutrophils by several stimulatory agents, such as immune complexes, tumor necrosis factor a, phorbol myristate acetate, and agonists of Toll-like receptors1, 5, 7, and 9, increased the immunoreactive amount of PAD4 on the cells. However, immune complex, LPS and PMA stimulation reduced PAD2 secretion. The presence of extracellular PAD2 and PAD4 was not caused by NETosis, apoptosis, or lysis ...
Arginine is derived from dietary protein intake, body protein breakdown, or endogenous de novo arginine production. The latter may be linked to the availability of citrulline, which is the immediate precursor of arginine and limiting factor for de novo arginine production. Arginine metabolism is highly compartmentalized due to the expression of the enzymes involved in arginine metabolism in various organs. A small fraction of arginine enters the NO synthase (NOS) pathway. Tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4) is an essential and rate-limiting cofactor for the production of NO ...

To assess the diagnostic potential of IgG antibodies to citrullinated and corresponding native autoantigens in early arthritis. IgG autoantibodies to 390 distinct unmodified and corresponding in vitro citrullinated recombinant proteins were measured by a multiplex assay in baseline blood samples from a German multicenter national cohort of 411 early arthritis patients (56.5 ± 14.6 years, 62.8% female). The cohort was randomly split into a training cohort (n = 329, 28.6% ACPA positive) and a validation cohort (n = 82, 32.9% ACPA pos.). The diagnostic properties of candidate antibodies to predict a subsequent diagnosis of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) as opposed to a non-RA diagnosis were assessed by receiver operating characteristics analysis and generalized linear modeling (GLM) with Bonferroni correction in comparison to clinically determined IgM rheumatoid factor (RF) and citrullinated peptide antibody (ACPA) status. Of 411 patients, 309 (75.2%) were classified as RA. Detection rates of antibody

Antibodies to citrulline-modifi ed proteins have a high diagnostic value in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). However, their biological role in disease development is still unclear. To obtain insight into this question, a panel of mouse monoclonal antibodies was generated against a major triple helical collagen type II (CII) epitope (position 359 - 369; ARGLTGRPGDA) with or without arginines modifi ed by citrullination. These antibodies bind cartilage and synovial tissue, and mediate arthritis in mice. Detection of citrullinated CII from RA patients synovial fl uid demonstrates that cartilage-derived CII is indeed citrullinated in vivo. The structure determination of a Fab fragment of one of these antibodies in complex with a citrullinated peptide showed a surprising beta -turn conformation of the peptide and provided information on citrulline recognition. Based on these findings, we propose that autoimmunity to CII, leading to the production of antibodies specific for both native and citrullinated ...
L-arginine and L-citrulline are chemically related amino acids, and they are frequently converted back and forth in your cells. However, the conversion from L-arginine to L-citrulline requires a different metabolic pathway than the conversion from L-citrulline to L-arginine. The conversion of citrulline to arginine utilizes a pathway that first produces ornithine. The arginine-to-citrulline conversion is more direct and produces a molecule of nitric oxide. One of nitric oxides many effects is to dilate your arteries, which improves blood flow to exercising muscles. It is believed that supplementation with L-citrulline increases arginine synthesis, which in turn enhances nitric oxide production.. Considerations. Supplementation with L-citrulline malate could improve exercise performance through two mechanisms. By facilitating removal of ammonia from exercising muscles, citrulline enhances cellular metabolism, improves energy production and extends exercise times. By increasing nitric oxide ...
OBJECTIVE: To map the antibody response to human citrullinated alpha-enolase, a candidate autoantigen in rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and to examine cross-reactivity with bacterial enolase. METHODS: Serum samples obtained from patients with RA, disease control subjects, and healthy control subjects were tested by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for reactivity with citrullinated alpha-enolase peptides. Antibodies specific for the immunodominant epitope were raised in rabbits or were purified from RA sera. Cross-reactivity with other citrullinated epitopes was investigated by inhibition ELISAs, and cross-reactivity with bacterial enolase was investigated by immunoblotting. RESULTS: An immunodominant peptide, citrullinated alpha-enolase peptide 1, was identified. Antibodies to this epitope were observed in 37-62% of sera obtained from patients with RA, 3% of sera obtained from disease control subjects, and 2% of sera obtained from healthy control subjects. Binding was inhibited with homologous
ABSTRACT: Protein citrullination originates from enzymatic deimination of amino acid arginine in a protein and is involved in various biological processes during health and disease. However, it has not been investigated in heart. Therefore, our goal was to identify novel substrates for peptidylarginine deiminase (PAD), enzyme responsible for this modification and associate it with changes in protein citrullination during heart failure (HF).. METHODS: Proteomics methods were used to identify citrullinated proteins and the site of modification in control mouse and control vs. HF human heart tissue (5 per group). The characterization of deiminated proteins was facilitated by modification of peptide-bound citrullineted Arg residues with antipyrine and butanedione, allowing for the unambiguous identification by mass spectrometry. Verification of citrullinated proteins was carried out by 2DE (modification causes pI shift) and western blot with anti-citrullinated antibody. PAD enzyme expression was ...

Abstract Study Objective Long‐term intake of proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) might increase the risk of cardiovascular events. One suggested mechanism is that PPIs inhibit the enzyme dimethylarginine dimethylaminohydrolase (DDAH) and thereby block the degradation of endothelial asymmetrical dimethylarginine (ADMA). Excess ADMA in turn leads to impaired endothelial nitric oxide (NO) generation. So far, this mechanism has only been established in human cell cultures. Previous studies that examined this pathway in human populations measured circulating ADMA and found no association with PPI use and excess plasma ADMA. But in a recent study, plasma ADMA was not correlated with intracellular ADMA. We therefore focused on changes in plasma citrulline as an indicator for potential DDAH inhibition. Design We analyzed the association between regular daily PPI intake and flow‐mediated dilation (FMD) of the brachial artery as well as plasma concentrations of citrulline, arginine, ADMA, and symmetric ...

L-Citrulline Improves Splanchnic Perfusion and Reduces Gut Injury during Exercise. Med. Sci. Sports Exerc., Vol. 46, No. 11, pp. 2039-2046, 2014. Purpose: Splanchnic hypoperfusion is a physiological phenomenon during strenuous exercise. It has been associated with gastrointestinal symptoms and intestinal injury and may hamper athletic performance. We hypothesized that L-citrulline supplementation improves splanchnic perfusion and decreases intestinal injury by enhancing arginine availability. The aim of this study was to determine the effect of L-citrulline intake on splanchnic perfusion, intestinal injury, and barrier function during exercise. Methods: In this randomized, double-blind crossover study, 10 men cycled for 60 min at 70% of their maximum workload after L-citrulline (10 g) or placebo (L-alanine) intake. Splanchnic perfusion was assessed using gastric air

The autoimmune character of RA is underscored by prominent production of autoantibodies such as those against IgG (rheumatoid factor), and a broad array of joint tissue-specific and other endogenous citrullinated proteins. Anti-citrullinated protein antibodies (ACPA) can be detected in the sera and synovial fluids of RA patients and ACPA seropositivity is one of the diagnostic criteria of RA. Studies have demonstrated that RA T cells respond to citrullinated peptides (epitopes) of proteoglycan (PG) aggrecan, which is one of the most abundant macromolecules of articular cartilage. However, it is not known if ...
The organic compound l-citrulline is an α-amino acid and is considered non-essential. It is an amino acid that participates in and is a key intermediate in the important Urea cycle which is the pathway by which mammals excrete ammonia.. The rind of watermelon (Citrullus lanatus) is the highest source of l-citrulline. Garlic and onions also have some trace amounts of l-citrulline. Due to the fact that these food sources have little amounts of l-citrulline, it is necessary to consume a l-citrulline supplement to achieve the therapeutic effects. L-Citrulline is an amino acid that plays an important role in nitric oxide metabolism and regulation. L-Citrulline is converted to L-Arginine in the body to support L-Arginine and nitric oxide levels. Increased production of nitric oxide (NO) promotes vascular dilation which improves oxygen and blood circulation throughout the body. The ingestion of l-citrulline can abrogate the state of oxidative stress and reverse the progression of atherosclerosis. This ...
Dr. Chen-Kang Chang and team studied the effects of branched-chain amino acids (BCAA), arginine, and citrulline supplementation on central fatigue. Between periods of intensive Taekwando exercise, they measured the premotor reaction time of athletes who were given amino acid (AA) supplements versus those who received a placebo. They also measured the ratios of free tryptophan to BCAA, since tryptophan is a precursor to serotonin- a molecule that may be responsible for lethargy when present in high levels ...

Citrullination (or deamination) is carried out by a small family of enzymes called peptidylarginine deiminases (PADIs) and is involved in innate immunity, nerve cell myelination, skin homeostasis and pluripotency. Conversely, abnormal citrullination is a pathological feature of diseases such as autoimmunity (rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, ulcerative colitis, psoriasis), neurodegeneration (Alzheimers and prion diseases), atherosclerosis and late stage cancer, while its inhibition by genetic and pharmacological means was shown to prevent or revert some of these pathologies. Despite the likely mechanistic importance of citrullination in both cell physiology and disease, it remains largely unexplored.. The central aims of our work are to define the molecular mechanisms that control PADI activation under physiological conditions, understand how PADIs modulate protein and cell function and decipher how abnormal citrullination contributes to pathology. We employ a combination of ...
OBJECTIVE: Anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide (CCP) antibodies have emerged as sensitive and specific serological markers of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). However, antibodies to several other citrulline-containing proteins, including citrullinated fibrin and vimentin, have been detected in patients with RA, suggesting that citrulline is an essential constituent of autoantigens for RA-specific autoantibodies. We examined the diagnostic performance of the newly developed anti-mutated citrullinated vimentin (MCV) antibody assay. METHODS: Concentrations of anti-MCV, anti-CCP2, and rheumatoid factors (RF) were determined in the sera of 237 individuals: 119 patients with RA and 118 controls, including patients with other rheumatic diseases and healthy subjects. Diagnostic properties were compared by receiver-operating characteristic curve analysis. RESULTS: Using manufacturers recommended cutoff values, sensitivity and specificity of anti-MCV antibodies were 75.6% and 91.5% in RA, compared to 66.4% and ...
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is characterized by synovial joint inflammation and by development of pathogenic humoral and cellular autoimmunity to citrullinated proteins. Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) are a source of citrullinated autoantigens and activate RA synovial fibroblast-like synoviocytes (FLS), cells crucial in joint damage. We investigated the molecular mechanisms by which NETs promote proinflammatory phenotypes in FLS and whether these interactions generate pathogenic anti-citrulline adaptive immune responses. NETs containing citrullinated peptides are internalized by FLS through a RAGE-TLR9 pathway, promoting FLS inflammatory phenotype and their up-regulation of major histocompatibility complex (MHC) class II. Once internalized, arthritogenic NET peptides are loaded into FLS MHC class II and presented to antigen-specific T cells. HLA-DRB1*04:01 transgenic mice immunized with mouse FLS loaded with NETs develop antibodies specific to citrullinated forms of relevant autoantigens ...
Peptidyl arginine deiminase, type IV, also known as PADI4, is a human protein which in humans is encoded by the PADI4 gene. The human gene is found on the short arm of Chromosome 1 near the telomere (1p36.13). It is located on the Watson (plus) strand and is 55,806 bases long. The protein is 663 amino acids long with a molecular weight of 74,095 Da. This gene is a member of a gene family which encodes enzymes responsible for the conversion of arginine to citrulline residues. This gene may play a role in granulocyte and macrophage development leading to inflammation and immune response. PADI4 plays a role in the epigenetics, the deimination of arginines on histones 3 and 4 can act antagonistically to arginine methylation (Chromatin modifications and their function, Kouzarides 2007, Cell, review) The protein may be found in oligomers and binds 5 calcium ions per subunit. It catalyses the reaction: Protein L-arginine + H2O = protein L-citrulline + NH3 It is normally found in the cytoplasm, nucleus ...
Purification of MCV-ACPAs. Samples of serum with very high ACPA response (,1,000 IU/ml) were obtained from 3 RA patients presenting at the Department of Medicine 3 of the University Clinic of Erlangen. ACPA activity was detected with a commercially available ELISA for detection of antibodies against citrullinated vimentin (Orgentec Diagnostika).. Recombinant MCV was conjugated to CNBr-sepharose (GE Healthcare) (1 mg protein/ml equilibrated sepharose) according to the manufacturers instructions and stored at 4°C in PBS with 0.1% BSA. Prior to affinity purification of ACPAs, IgG was purified by affinity chromatography on a protein A column (GE Healthcare). Eluted IgG fractions were immediately neutralized with 1:10 volume of 1 M Tris-buffer (pH 8.0) and dialyzed against PBS (pH 7.2). Each purified IgG fraction was applied to a separate citrullinated vimentin affinity column (1 ml matrix per serum sample) and incubated for 2 hours at 4°C, rotating end over end. The column was washed with 0.5 M ...
Objectives To determine whether serum immunity to peptidylarginine deiminase (PPAD) impacts the clinical response to biological disease-modifying antirheumatic medication (bDMARD) in sufferers with arthritis rheumatoid (RA). DAS28-CRP (P = 0.01 for both) as well as the anti-CCP IgG amounts (P = 0.02 for both) from baseline to 3 and six months later on. A multiple regression evaluation revealed a considerably positive association between your anti-PPAD IgG titers and adjustments in the DAS28-CRP after six months of bDMARD therapy (P = 0.006), after adjusting for age group, gender, cigarette smoking, periodontal condition, and RA-related SNPs. Bottom line The serum IgG amounts to PPAD have an effect on the scientific response to bDMARD in sufferers with RA. Launch Arthritis rheumatoid (RA) is definitely a systemic autoimmune disease that has a breach of self-tolerance, chronic synovial swelling and joint damage [1]. Periodontitis can be a chronic inflammatory disease seen as BIBR-1048 a local ...

In rheumatoid arthritis (RA), immunological triggers at mucosal sites, such as the gut microbiota, may promote autoimmunity that affects joints. Here, we used discovery-based proteomics to detect HLA-DR-presented peptides in synovia or peripheral blood mononuclear cells and identified 2 autoantigens, N-acetylglucosamine-6-sulfatase (GNS) and filamin A (FLNA), as targets of T and B cell responses in 52% and 56% of RA patients, respectively. Both GNS and FLNA were highly expressed in synovia. GNS appeared to be citrullinated, and GNS antibody values correlated with anti-citrullinated protein antibody (ACPA) levels. FLNA did not show the same results. The HLA-DR-presented GNS peptide has marked sequence homology with epitopes from sulfatase proteins of the Prevotella sp. and Parabacteroides sp., whereas the HLA-DR-presented FLNA peptide has homology with epitopes from proteins of the Prevotella sp. and Butyricimonas sp., another gut commensal. Patients with T cell reactivity with each self-peptide ...

Introduction: It has previously been shown that an increased number of antibodies against citrullinated peptides/proteins (ACPA) predate the onset of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Over time antibody positivity expands, involving more specific responses when approaching the onset of symptoms. We investigated the impact of human leukocyte antigen-shared epitope (HLA-SE) alleles and smoking on the development of ACPA, as well as in combination with ACPA during the state of quiescent autoimmunity (before the onset of symptoms), on the development of RA. Methods: Blood samples donated to the Medical Biobank of Northern Sweden from individuals prior to the onset of symptoms of RA (n = 370) and after onset (n = 203) and from population-based controls (n = 585) were used. Antibodies against 10 citrullinated peptides, fibrinogen (Fib alpha 561-583, alpha 580-600, beta 62-81a, beta 62-81b, beta 36-52), vimentin (Vim2-17, 60-75), filaggrin (CCP-1/Fil307-324),alpha-enolase (CEP-1/Eno5-21), collagen type II ...

Next we performed reanalyses of the mutation patterns of the monoclonal antibodies generated from ACPA+ patient samples based on citrulline reactivity. As seen in Fig. 4 c, the citrulline-specific antibodies displayed fewer overall mutations but higher R/S ratios in their CDRs as compared with the citrulline-negative clones (Fig. 4 d). Traditionally, selection of high-affinity B cells during affinity maturation is primarily dependent on the presentation of antigens to T cells and takes place in germinal centers (Liu et al., 1997). However, it is known that such affinity maturation may also take place at extrafollicular sites (William et al., 2002). To address whether the citrulline-specific antibodies had undergone affinity-driven maturation, we reverted four antibodies with high citrulline reactivity to their predicted germline sequences. Reversion of mutations in these four citrulline-specific monoclonal antibodies led to a loss of reactivity to all the autoantigens (Fig. 2 e). The above ...

Agmatine can regulate nitric oxide levels, which leads to the pump often felt at the gym after taking pre workout supplements containing this ingredient.*. Citrulline is another supplement which raises plasma arginine concentration. Its unknown whether citrulline and agmatine taken together further enhance systemic nitric oxide production.* Some research suggests that they compete for uptake, so its likely not worthwhile to combine arginine and citrulline. Other supplements that do not go well with agmatine include creatine, DAA, and Yohimbine. Read more about these interactions at ...

It is isolated from the salty lakes in El-Fayoum and Lake of Bardawil-Sinai in Egypt and can withstand very high concentrations of salt: The potentiality of , a unicellular biflagellate green alga to protect against intestinal injury induced after radiation exposure was studied. was given orally in doses of 100 and 200 mg/kg to male Wistar rats for 5 days before exposure to 6 Gray (Gy) gamma radiation and continued for a further two days. Rats were sacrificed 24 h later and intestinal segments were dissected out. One segment was examined histologically and another was used to prepare homogenates to assess relevant biochemical parameters reflecting intestinal injury. Radiation exposure led to a rise in the histological damage score, an increase in tissue tumor necrosis factor (TNF-α), interleukin (IL-1β) and thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) but a reduction in tissue reduced glutathione (GSH) and in serum citrulline. ...
The importance of including informative controls is similarly underscored in additional figures in the manuscript of Carmona-Rivera et al. In Fig. 1B of the manuscript, Carmona-Rivera et al. demonstrated that ACPAs target several proteins in NETs. Although the detection of antigens in NETs by RA autoantibodies is reproducible using PMA (Fig. 1B, lane 1), the inclusion of unstimulated neutrophils demonstrates that the same bands are also found (some even more prominently) in control cells (Fig. 1B, lane 2). This is far less than the prominent detection of autoantigens in hypercitrullinated neutrophils (Fig. 1B, lane 3). Nevertheless, the absence of controls in Fig. 1B of the manuscript makes it impossible to confirm whether citrullinated autoantigens are generated during NETosis. Because dying cells redistribute their intracellular proteins, it is not surprising that citrullinated proteins found in control neutrophils may be redistributed during NETosis (or any other form of cell death) and ...

Citrullinated proteins derived from the conversion of peptidyl-arginine to peptidyl-citrulline are present in the joints of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) who also uniquely produce high levels of anti-citrullinated protein Abs. RA. In this study we isolated a CD4 T cell collection PD 0332991 Isethionate specific for CF that produces inflammatory cytokines. When transferred into mice with collagen-induced arthritis (CIA) this T cell collection specifically enhanced the severity of autoimmune arthritis. Additionally pathogenic IgG2a autoantibody levels to mouse type II collagen were increased in mice that received the T cells in CIA and levels of these T cells were increased in the synovium suggesting the T cells may have had systemic effects around the B cell response as well as local effects around the inflammatory environment. This work demonstrates that CD4 T cells specific for CF can amplify disease severity after onset of CIA. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is usually a chronic ...
L-Citrulline Malate: A compound consisting of Citrulline, a nonessential amino acid. It plays a vital role in many important biological processes including regulating nitric oxide production, helping to eliminate the burn associated with lactic acid build up, reducing the negative effects of ammonia and bacterial endo toxins on performance, increasing the rate of muscle ATP (Andenosine Triphosphate, the major energy source within the cell) production during exercise and greater phosphocreatine recovery after exercise. In fact, L-Citrulline Malate seems to increase plasma Arginine levels better than taking the amino acid Arginine itself! If the enhanced pumps and improved nutrient delivery properties are the reason you are using Arginine based NO products, you need to pay close attention to L-Citrulline Malate as this may result in muscles that can keep on going and going…completely smashing the aerobic threshold ...
BACKGROUNDSepsis leads to a complex systemic response of cytokines (both pro- and anti-inflammatory) and more recently recognized adipokine mediators. Endothelial nitric oxide (NO) may be a key component in regulating this response, but the pharmacologic manipulation of endothelial NO via L-arginine supplementation or inhibitors has provided inconsistent clinical data related to outcomes. These failures are related to the metabolism of L-arginine in the liver, toxicity of L-arginine, and asymmetric dimethylarginine inhibition, all of which may explain the arginine paradox. L-citrulline (CIT) offers a potentially valuable means of supplementing arginine and therefore impacting favorably NO availability. The goal of this study was to determine whether CIT supplementation altered the systemic response of mediators and cytokines in a rat model of sepsis with varying degrees of severity.METHODSSepsis was induced with 2 models of cecal ligation and puncture (CLP) of varying severity in Wistar rats. ...
Animals. We have previously described the development of mice with myocyte-specific overexpression of eNOS (Brunner et al., 2001). Hearts from TG line 23 were used in this study. This line shows a more than 50-fold overexpression of eNOS in cardiomyocytes. Wild-type (WT) littermates served as controls. NOS activities, determined as [3H]l-citrulline formation, are approximately 50-fold higher in this TG line than in WT hearts (Brunner et al., 2001). Hearts from animals of either sex of the following four experimental groups were studied: 1) WT control, 2) TG control, 3) WT diabetic, and 4) TG diabetic. A total of four sets of hearts, each comprising all four groups, was used: set I for functional studies, set II for measurement of ROS and nitrite in coronary effluent, set III for measurement of cGMP in coronary effluent, and set IV for myocardial O2 uptake measurements (see Results). The protocols for which sets II and III were used required the coinfusion of the spin trap and ...
... has been used as a food acidulant since 1946. It is approved for use as a food additive in the EU,[3] USA[4] and Australia and New Zealand.[5] As a food additive, it is used as an acidity regulator and can be denoted by the E number E297. It is generally used in beverages and baking powders for which requirements are placed on purity. Fumaric acid is used in the making of wheat tortillas as a food preservative and as the acid in leavening.[6] It is generally used as a substitute for tartaric acid and occasionally in place of citric acid, at a rate of 1 g of fumaric acid to every ~1.5 g of citric acid, in order to add sourness, similarly to the way malic acid is used. As well as being a component of some artificial vinegar flavors, such as "Salt and Vinegar" flavored potato chips,[7] it is also used as a coagulant in stove-top pudding mixes. The European Commission Scientific Committee on Animal Nutrition, part of DG Health, found in 2014 that fumaric acid is "practically non-toxic" ...
