Identification of an amino acid transporter associated with the cystinuria-related type II membrane glycoprotein. (1/77)

We identified an amino acid transporter that is associated with the cystinuria-related type II membrane glycoprotein, rBAT (related to b(0,+) amino acid transporter). The transporter designated BAT1 (b(0, +)-type amino acid transporter 1) from rat kidney was found to be structurally related to recently identified amino acid transporters for system L, system y(+)L, and system x(-)C, which are linked, via a disulfide bond, to the other type II membrane glycoprotein, 4F2hc (4F2 heavy chain). In the nonreducing condition, a 125-kDa band, which seems to correspond to the heterodimeric complex of BAT1 and rBAT, was detected in rat kidney with anti-BAT1 antibody. The band was shifted to 41 kDa in the reducing condition, confirming that BAT1 and rBAT are linked via a disulfide bond. The BAT1 and rBAT proteins were shown to be colocalized in the apical membrane of the renal proximal tubules where massive cystine transport had been proposed. When expressed in COS-7 cells with rBAT, but not with 4F2hc, BAT1 exhibited a Na(+)-independent transport of cystine as well as basic and neutral amino acids with the properties of system b(0,+). The results from the present investigation were used to establish a family of amino acid transporters associated with type II membrane glycoproteins.  (+info)

Cloning and expression of a b(0,+)-like amino acid transporter functioning as a heterodimer with 4F2hc instead of rBAT. A new candidate gene for cystinuria. (2/77)

We have cloned a transporter protein from rabbit small intestine, which, when coexpressed with the 4F2 heavy chain (4F2hc) in mammalian cells, induces a b(0,+)-like amino acid transport activity. This protein (4F2-lc6 for the sixth member of the 4F2 light chain family) consists of 487 amino acids and has 12 putative transmembrane domains. At the level of amino acid sequence, 4F2-lc6 shows significant homology (44% identity) to the other five known members of the 4F2 light chain family, namely LAT1 (4F2-lc1), y(+)LAT1 (4F2-lc2), y(+)LAT2 (4F2-lc3), xCT (4F2-lc4), and LAT2 (4F2-lc5). The 4F2hc/4F2-lc6 complex-mediated transport process is Na(+)-independent and exhibits high affinity for neutral and cationic amino acids and cystine. These characteristics are similar to those of the b(0,+)-like amino acid transport activity previously shown to be associated with rBAT (protein related to b(0,+) amino acid transport system). However, the newly cloned 4F2-lc6 does not interact with rBAT. This is the first report of the existence of a b(0,+)-like amino acid transport process that is independent of rBAT. 4F2-lc6 is expressed predominantly in the small intestine and kidney. Based on the characteristics of the transport process mediated by the 4F2hc/4F2-lc6 complex and the expression pattern of 4F2-lc6 in mammalian tissues, we suggest that 4F2-lc6 is a new candidate gene for cystinuria.  (+info)

Luminal heterodimeric amino acid transporter defective in cystinuria. (3/77)

Mutations of the glycoprotein rBAT cause cystinuria type I, an autosomal recessive failure of dibasic amino acid transport (b(0,+) type) across luminal membranes of intestine and kidney cells. Here we identify the permease-like protein b(0,+)AT as the catalytic subunit that associates by a disulfide bond with rBAT to form a hetero-oligomeric b(0,+) amino acid transporter complex. We demonstrate its b(0,+)-type amino acid transport kinetics using a heterodimeric fusion construct and show its luminal brush border localization in kidney proximal tubule. These biochemical, transport, and localization characteristics as well as the chromosomal localization on 19q support the notion that the b(0,+)AT protein is the product of the gene defective in non-type I cystinuria.  (+info)

Identification of five novel SLC3A1 (rBAT) gene mutations in Japanese cystinuria. (4/77)

Identification of five novel SLC3A1 (rBAT) gene mutations in Japanese cystinuria. BACKGROUND: Cystinuria is an inheritable amino aciduria and has been classified into three subtypes: I, II, and III. One of the genes responsible for cystinuria has recently been identified as SLC3A1 or rBAT, but only type I cystinuria seems to be caused by genetic alterations in rBAT. To our knowledge, thus far 38 mutations in rBAT gene have been described. In this study, we investigated rBAT mutations in Japanese patients and compared the results with the previously reported mutations in other races. METHODS: We investigated 36 Japanese cystinuria patients by mutational analysis of rBAT gene. To identify newly mutated alleles, genomic DNA was analyzed by polymerase chain reaction-single strand conformation polymorphism (PCR-SSCP). When an abnormal migration was observed on SSCP, a nucleotide sequence determination was performed. RESULTS: Five novel mutations were identified in five patients, three with missense mutations (L346P, I445T, C673R), one with a 1 bp deletion (1820delT), and one with a 2 bp insertion (1898insTA), and we detected three previously reported polymorphisms. Three of the mutations were homozygous, in whom parents had intermarried, and two were heterozygous for each mutations. Analysis of rBAT in family of the 1898insTA patient revealed that the patient had inherited the mutated allele from his parents. CONCLUSION: Five novel mutations in the rBAT gene have been identified in Japanese patients with cystinuria. A racial difference was not apparent in the position and frequency of the mutations.  (+info)

Functional analysis of mutations in SLC7A9, and genotype-phenotype correlation in non-Type I cystinuria. (5/77)

Cystinuria (OMIM 220100) is a common recessive disorder of renal reabsorption of cystine and dibasic amino acids that results in nephrolithiasis of cystine. Mutations in SLC3A1, which encodes rBAT, cause Type I cystinuria, and mutations in SLC7A9, which encodes a putative subunit of rBAT (b(o,+)AT), cause non-Type I cystinuria. Here we describe the genomic structure of SLC7A9 (13 exons) and 28 new mutations in this gene that, together with the seven previously reported, explain 79% of the alleles in 61 non-Type I cystinuria patients. These data demonstrate that SLC7A9 is the main non-Type I cystinuria gene. Mutations G105R, V170M, A182T and R333W are the most frequent SLC7A9 missense mutations found. Among heterozygotes carrying these mutations, A182T heterozygotes showed the lowest urinary excretion values of cystine and dibasic amino acids. Functional analysis of mutation A182T after co-expression with rBAT in HeLa cells revealed significant residual transport activity. In contrast, mutations G105R, V170M and R333W are associated to a complete or almost complete loss of transport activity, leading to a more severe urinary phenotype in heterozygotes. SLC7A9 mutations located in the putative transmembrane domains of b(o,+)AT and affecting conserved amino acid residues with a small side chain generate a severe phenotype, while mutations in non-conserved residues give rise to a mild phenotype. These data provide the first genotype-phenotype correlation in non-Type I cystinuria, and show that a mild urinary phenotype in heterozygotes may associate with mutations with significant residual transport activity.  (+info)

Familial hyperargininaemia. (6/77)

A third case of hyperargininaemia occurring in one family was studied from birth. In cord blood serum arginine concentration was only slightly raised, but arginase activity in red blood cell haemolysates was very low. In the urine on day 2 a typical cystinuria pattern was present. Arginine concentration in serum increased to 158 mumol/100 ml on the 41st day of life. Later determinations of the arginase activity in peripheral blood showed values below the sensitivity of the method. Blood ammonia was consistently high, and cystinuria was present. The enzymatic defect was further displayed by intravenous loading tests with arginine. Serum urea values were predominantly normal or near the lower limit of normal, suggesting the presence of other metabolic pathways of urea synthesis. In urine there was no excretion of guanidinosuccinic acid, while the excretion of other monosubstituted guanidine derivatives was increased, pointing to a connexion with hyperargininaemia. Owing to parental attitude, a low protein diet (1-5 g/kg) was introduced only late. The infant developed severe mental retardation, athetosis, and spasticity.  (+info)

Cystinuria type I: identification of eight new mutations in SLC3A1. (7/77)

BACKGROUND: Cystinuria is a heritable disorder of amino acid transport characterized by the defective transport of cystine and the dibasic amino acids through the brush border epithelial cells of the renal tubule and intestine tract. Three types of cystinuria (I, II, and III) have been described based on the urinary excretion of cystine and dibasic amino acids in obligate heterozygotes. The SLC3A1 gene coding for an amino acid transporter named rBAT is responsible for type I cystinuria, whereas the SLC7A9 gene coding for a subunit (b0,+AT) of rBAT is involved in determining non-type I (types II and III) cystinuria. METHODS: The SLC3A1 gene sequence was investigated in a sample of seven type I/type I, three type I/non-type I, six type I/untyped, and four untyped unrelated cystinuric patients by RNA single-strand conformation polymorphism (RNA-SSCP). RESULTS: Eight new point mutations (S168X, 765+1G>T, 766-2A>G, R452Q, Y461X, S547W, L564F, and C673W) and seven previously reported mutations were detected. These new mutations increase the number of mutated alleles so far characterized in SLC3A1 to 62. CONCLUSIONS: We have found SLC3A1 mutations in 0.739 of the type I chromosomes studied. The relatively high proportion of uncharacterized type I chromosomes suggests either that there may be mutations not yet found in SLC3A1 or that many of the assigned type I chromosomes in mixed type I/non-type I patients may have mutations in SLC7A9. If the hypothesis is excluded in the future, we believe that a third gene may be involved in cystinuria.  (+info)

Human cystinuria-related transporter: localization and functional characterization. (8/77)

BACKGROUND: Cystinuria has been proposed to be an inherited defect of apical membrane transport systems for cystine and basic amino acids in renal proximal tubules. Although the mutations of the recently identified transporter BAT1/b(0,+)AT have been related to nontype I cystinuria, the function and localization of human BAT1 (hBAT1)/b(0,+)AT have not been well characterized. METHODS: The cDNA encoding hBAT1 was isolated from human kidney. Fluorescence in situ hybridization was performed to map the hBAT1 gene on human chromosomes. Tissue distribution and localization of expression were examined by Northern blot and immunohistochemical analyses. hBAT1 cDNA was transfected to COS-7 cells with rBAT cDNA, and the uptake and efflux of 14C-labeled amino acids were measured to determine the functional properties. The roles of protein kinase-dependent phosphorylation were investigated using inhibitors or activators of protein kinases. RESULTS: The hBAT1 gene was mapped to 19q12-13.1 on the human chromosome, which is the locus of nontype I cystinuria. hBAT1 message was expressed predominantly in kidney. hBAT1 protein was localized in the apical membrane of proximal tubules in human kidney. When expressed in COS-7 cells with a type II membrane glycoprotein rBAT (related to b(0,+)-amino acid transporter), hBAT1 exhibited the transport activity with the properties of amino acid transport system b(0,+), which transported cystine as well as basic and neutral amino acids presumably via a substrate exchange mechanism. BAT1-mediated transport was reduced by the protein kinase A activator and enhanced by the tyrosine kinase inhibitor. CONCLUSIONS: hBAT1 exhibited the properties expected for a transporter subserving the high-affinity cystine transport system in renal proximal tubules. The hBAT1 gene was mapped to the locus of nontype I cystinuria, confirming the involvement of hBAT1 in cystinuria.  (+info)

Looking for online definition of cystinuria type I in the Medical Dictionary? cystinuria type I explanation free. What is cystinuria type I? Meaning of cystinuria type I medical term. What does cystinuria type I mean?
Cystinuria is a disease of disrupted amino acid transport in the collecting ducts of the kidney failing to reclaim certain amino acids (cystine and the dibasic amino acids ornithine, lysine and arginine referred to as COLA). The increased urinary COLA concentrations reach saturation levels for cystine, which precipitates to form crystals and stones resulting in renal to urethral obstructions. Mutations in the SLC3A1 and SLC7A9 genes give rise to cystinuria in the vast majority of cystinuric humans, where the disease shows autosomal recessive or dominant inheritance (reviewed in Palacin et al. 2001; Chillaron et al. 2010).. Cystine calculi have been reported from at least 70 dog breeds, with increased incidence in several breeds (Ling et al. 1998; Osborne et al. 1999); in contrast, cystinuria is rarely seen in cats. We previously demonstrated autosomal recessively inherited cystinuria in Newfoundland dogs (with less frequent urolithiasis in females due to anatomical urological differences) caused ...
Cystinuria is a condition characterized by the buildup of the amino acid cystine, a building block of most proteins, in the kidneys and bladder. As the kidneys filter blood to create urine, cystine is normally absorbed back into the bloodstream. People with cystinuria cannot properly reabsorb cystine into their bloodstream, so the amino acid accumulates in their urine.. As urine becomes more concentrated in the kidneys, the excess cystine forms crystals. Larger crystals become stones that may lodge in the kidneys or in the bladder. Sometimes cystine crystals combine with calcium molecules in the kidneys to form large stones. These crystals and stones can create blockages in the urinary tract and reduce the ability of the kidneys to eliminate waste through urine. The stones also provide sites where bacteria may cause infections.. Cystinuria affects approximately 1 in 10,000 people.. ...
Cystinuria is defined as an inherited disorder characterized by increased urinary excretion of cystine and the dibasic amino acids arginine, lysine and ornithine. The only clinical manifestation of cystinuria is renal cystine stone formation due to the low solubility of cystine in the urine. Cystinuria can be attributed to mutations in the SLC3A1 and SLC7A9 genes in the majority of all cases and it has been a common expectation that molecular genetic studies of cystinuria would aid in understanding of the varying clinical outcome seen in the disease. Besides human, the disease has been most extensively studied in the domestic dog.. The present study was undertaken to investigate the molecular genetic basis of cystinuria in patients from Sweden and to correlate genetic findings with phenotypes produced regarding cystine and dibasic amino acid excretion. Further, attempts were made to elucidate the molecular genetics of cystinuria in the dog.. The entire coding sequences of the SLC3A1 and SLC7A9 ...
It is critical to prevent stone formation in people with cystinuria as these stones can get very big very quickly. Not only do people with cystine stones undergo a high number of procedures and surgeries, but also compared to the more common stone types, their kidney function is more often impaired.. The biggest key to preventing cystine stones (as most others) is to maintain a very high fluid intake. In the case of cystine stones, we can estimate exactly how much a person needs to drink by their total daily cystine excretion, which can be obtained from a 24-hr urine collection - or better yet several. Once we know how much cystine, on average, a person makes, we can determine how much fluid intake is necessary.Typically, at least 3-4 liters of urine are required daily, and often much more than that. Variety helps to maintain such high intakes.. We also know that making the urine more alkaline (less acidic) is a cornerstone of therapy in patients with cystinuria. Some patients with cystine ...
The first cystine stone was identified in 1810 by Wollaston, who called it cystic oxide.65 Cystinuria is an autosomal recessive disease characterised by renal and intestinal dibasic amino acid transport defects affecting cystine, ornithine, arginine, and lysine, of which cystine is the least soluble and therefore the most likely to precipitate as a stone.66 Cystinuria type I has now been shown to be caused by a mutation in the gene SLC3AI, which encodes the rBAT protein.67 The M467T mutation appears to be particularly important, but there are several other minor variants that may also be relevant.68 Regardless of cause, the primary goal of medical management is to prevent the formation of new stones by reducing the cystine concentration to below its upper limit of solubility. The precise solubility limits are unclear, with a variety of possibilities cited: urine solubility of 250 mg/litre (200 μmol/litre) at pH 5.0, rising to 500 mg/litre (410 μmol/litre) at pH 7.5, and 1000 mg/litre (820 ...

1. By using ion-exchange columns coupled to a sensitive automated Sakaguchi reaction, in addition to the normal ninhydrin reaction for amino acids, homoarginine, a guanidino homologue of arginine, was found in the plasma and urine of both normal and cystinuric individuals.. 2. In all seven cystinuric subjects studied, urinary excretion of homoarginine was approximately ten times that found in normal subjects; the plasma levels of this amino acid were considerably reduced relative to normal individuals.. 3. Homoarginine in the plasma can be derived either metabolically from lysine or from dietary sources.. 4. In normal subjects homoarginine was cleared at a higher rate than arginine. On the other hand, the clearance of arginine exceeded that for homoarginine in the majority of cystinuric subjects although the values obtained for homoarginine indicate that the defect in amino acid transport also affects this amino acid.. 5. The defect in the proximal tubular reabsorption of homoarginine is less ...
Cystinuria is a rare genetic disorder characterized by recurrent, painful kidney stones, primarily composed of cystine, the dimer of the amino acid cysteine (Sumorok and Goldfarb, 2013). Using a mouse model of cystinuria, we have recently shown that administration of drugs that increase cystine solubility in the urine can be a novel therapeutic strategy for the clinical management of the disease (Zee et al., 2017). There is a large unmet need in the field for developing new drugs for cystinuria. To that end, here we describe a simple in vitro cystine solubility assay that is amenable for screening compounds to identify potential drugs that may influence cystine solubility. The assay includes preparing a supersaturated solution of cystine, incubating this solution with drug(s) of choice, and finally using high pressure liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (HPLC-MS/MS) to quantify the amount of cystine precipitated under various conditions.
0028] Based on the results, it can reasonably be projected that soluble N.sup.α-long chain alkanoyl dibasic amino acid alkyl ester salts will provide synergistic anti-microbial activity when combined with a glycerol mono-fatty acid ester. It would seem that in order to obtain the practical benefits of the synergism between an N.sup.α-long chain alkanoyl dibasic amino acid alkyl ester salt and a glycerol mono-fatty acid ester, the solubility of the N.sup.α-long chain alkanoyl dibasic amino acid alkyl ester salt would need to be sufficient to release a concentration of N.sup.α-long chain alkanoyl dibasic amino acid alkyl ester cation which is greater than microbial inhibitory concentration of that ion in water at RT. Based on the data, it would seem that the absolute minimum solubility required would be approximately 5 ppm in water at RT. Desirably, however, the solubility of the N.sup.α-long chain alkanoyl dibasic amino acid alkyl ester salt should be such that the amount of cation released ...
In this report, an 8-year-old girl is presented with the complaint of progressive night blindness. The authors have performed eye funduscopy, which showed chorioretinal atrophy in gyrate shape. A high level of plasma ornithine was determined. Urinary excretion of ornithine as well as lysine and cystine were increased. Patient was treated with high dose pyridoxine supplement (500 mg/dl). The night blindness condition of the patient improved. After 1 month of pyridoxine therapy ornithine level of her plasma was successfully reduced and blindness improved.
Some patients may experience drug fever, a marked febrile response to penicillamine, usually in the second to third week following initiation of therapy. Drug fever may sometimes be accompanied by a macular cutaneous eruption. In the case of drug fever in patients with Wilsons disease or cystinuria, penicillamine should be temporarily discontinued until the reaction subsides. Then penicillamine should be reinstituted with a small dose that is gradually increased until the desired dosage is attained. Systemic steroid therapy may be necessary, and is usually helpful, in such patients in whom drug fever and rash develop several times.. In the case of drug fever in rheumatoid arthritis patients, because other treatments are available, penicillamine should be discontinued and another therapeutic alternative tried since experience indicates that the febrile reaction will recur in a very high percentage of patients upon readministration of penicillamine.. The skin and mucous membranes should be ...

Peak times for clinical expression of cystinuria are usually during the second and third decades of life (the disease may appear as early as in the first year or as late as in the ninth decade of life). Renal cholics with hematuria as a consequence of nephrolithiasis, urinary tract infections, and obstructive uropathies are common manifestations. Hypertension and renal failure occur occasionally. Onset of neurologic symptoms, such as progressive loss of motor and cognitive milestones, seizures, spasticity, and ataxia, have been reported to occur in early childhood. Further deterioration of neurologic status often coincides with urinary tract infections. Alteration of intestinal flora by ...

Renal tubular reabsorption of cystine and lysine were studied in the isolated perfused rat kidney to bridge the gap between in vivo clearance studies, and in vitro transport studies of tubule fragments, cells, and brush-border membranes. Lysine was reabsorped by a saturable transport system shared by the dibasics. Cystine was also reabsorbed by a saturable transport system, which was shared in part by the dibasics (maximum inhibition 30%). The lysine threshold (Fmin) was 0.9 mumol.min-1.g-1, with a tubular maximum (TM) of 2.4 mumol.min-1.g-1. The cystine Fmin was 0.06 mumol.min-1.g-1; the TM could not be estimated because it was above the limit of cystine solubility. There was no evidence of cystine ,secretion.- The gamma-glutamyltransferase inhibitor, AT-125, decreased cystine excretion, but only in the presence of glutathione, glycine, glutamate, and the diabasic amino acids. This suggests that cystine from glutathione degradation at the brush border may contribute to urinary cystine (an ...

Red or orange stones probably contain uric acid. Likewise, stones that do not show up on simple abdominal flat plate x rays are probably uric acid. These are easy to prevent, and recurrences are unnecessary.. Allow me to elaborate on this. Pure uric acid stones are almost all due to an excessively acid urine pH, and will stop if you raise that pH. Potassium citrate tablets, 10 mEq size, 2 twice daily is almost always enough. Sometimes it takes 2 tabs 3 times a day. Crystal light lemonade has in one liter about the same amount of alkali as two of the tablets. I could say that there is little excuse for another uric acid stone.. If stones contain uric acid and other crystals, those other crystals need to be dealt with on their own. They may not respond to higher urine pH, and could be worsened.. Yellow stones are probably cystine, and due to cystinuria, a complex disease with its own special treatments. Because almost all kidney stone panels include a cystine screening test, cystinuria is almost ...

Initial treatment is with adequate hydration, alkalization of the urine with citrate supplementation or acetazolamide, and dietary modification to reduce salt and protein intake (especially methionine). If this fails then patients are usually started on chelation therapy with an agent such as penicillamine.[10][11] Tiopronin is another agent. Once renal stones have formed, however, the first-line treatment is ESWL (Extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy). If ESWL do not work efficiently surgery can be necessary. Both endoscopic surgery and conventional open-abdominal surgery have proven to be effective treatment modalities for patients with more advanced disease. Adequate hydration is the foremost aim of treatment to prevent cysteine stones. The goal is to increase the urine volume because the concentration of cystine in the urine is reduced which prevents cystine from precipitating from the urine and forming stones. People with cystine stones should consume 5 to 7 liters a day. The rationale ...
Background: Cystinuria is the most common inherited cause of recurrent kidney stones (1). Its principal disorder is impaired reabsorption of cystine in the proximal renal tubule. As a result, large amounts of cystine are excreted in urine, kidney stones form because cystine is poorly soluble, and the patient experiences many urologic interventions. Measures to prevent stone formation include changing the diet to reduce cystine excretion, diluting urine to a lower cystine concentration, and making the urine alkaline to improve cystine solubility. Cystine-binding thiol drugs also improve cystine solubility but need to be discontinued because of adverse effects in 30% to 60% of cases (1) ...
Cystinuria is a disease of autosomal recessive inheritance. This disease belongs to the so-called orphan diseases although its prevalence may change depending on the country.. It is known that urinary pH is a risk factor for the formation of cystine crystals because their solubility is pH-dependent. In different studies it has been shown that the solubility of cystine in urine increases when alkalinizing urinary pH, thus reducing the likelihood of crystal formation. Therefore, the control of urinary pH along with hygienic-dietetic measures that alkalize the urine or decrease the urinary concentration of cystine (abundant intake of water, food, etc.) are highly recommended as a preventive method to prevent the formation of cystine crystals whose retention and growth results in the formation of stones.. The Lit-control®pH Meter is a pH meter that allows a patient to self-monitor its urinary pH in a comfortable and simple way. With this tool the patient is able to know if his urinary pH is within ...

Philip Anderson Shaffer was born in Martinsburg, West Virginia. He graduated from the University of West Virginia with a B.A. in 1900 and from Harvard University with a Ph.D. degree in 1904. At Harvard, Shaffer worked with Otto Folin and became interested in methods for the determination of organic substances in blood, urine, and milk. For a time, Shaffer served as a research biological chemist at the McLean Hospital in Waverly, Massachusetts, and from 1904 to 1910 he was an instructor in pathological chemistry at Cornell University Medical College. He then became professor of biological chemistry at the Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, Missouri, where he built up a strong department of physiological chemistry. Shaffers scientific work was varied in character. He studied metabolism in disease, nutrition in typhoid fever, protein metabolism in exophthalmic goiter, and protein metabolism in cystinuria. His studies on antiketogenesis were especially noteworthy and appeared in a ...

The recent humanitarian release of Libyan citizen Abdalbaset al-Megrahi from prison in Greenock, Scotland, because of his poor health, and his subsequent "heros welcome" in Libya is strikingly incongruous when compared with the tragic fate of Fathi al-Jahmi, a Libyan prisoner who also suffered from poor health, including coronary artery disease, congestive heart failure, hypertension, and diabetes.. Libyan authorities held Mr. al-Jahmi prisoner in Tripoli on two occasions for a total of six and a half years. His "crime"? The peaceful exercise of his fundamental rights of freedom of expression and association. He advocated for democratic reforms and free elections, as have many other Libyan citizens whose outspoken opinions have led to their imprisonment. Additionally, Mr. al-Jahmi had the audacity to directly criticize the Libyan government and its leader of 40 years, Colonel Muammar al-Quaddafi.. Mr. al-Jahmis second arrest took place in March 2004. In February 2005, a medical doctor ...

Asthma with atopy is often characterized by type 2 inflammation but less progress has been made in defining non-type 2 asthma. We have previously identified a subgroup of young non-atopic asthmatics with perceived food hypersensitivity and poor asthma control. Our aim was to further characterize this subgroup of non-type 2 asthmatics, including the use of a broad panel of inflammation-related proteins. Sex- and age-matched subjects (10-35 years old) were divided into three groups with regard to history of asthma and atopy: non-atopic asthmatics with perceived cows milk hypersensitivity but with IgE antibodies | 0.35 kUA/L (NAA; n = 24), non-atopic controls with IgE | 0.35 kUA/L (NAC; n = 24), and atopic asthmatics with IgE ≥ 0.35 kUA/L (AA; n = 29). Serum or plasma were analysed using the multi-allergen tests Phadiatop and fx5 (ImmunoCAP), a multiplex immunoassay comprising 92 inflammation-related proteins (Proseek Inflammation), and an ELISA for human neutrophil lipocalin (S-HNL).

Changes in urinary and plasma taurine and amino acids have been evaluated in trained runners competing in the Rotterdam Marathon, 1998, both immediately after completing the event and 24h after recovery. There were significant changes in the urinary amino acids excretion, the majority showing a significant decrease both immediately at the completion of the Marathon and after 24h recovery. In contrast urinary taurine excretion increased immediately post Marathon, although not significantly as the range of results was wide. Such changes in urinary taurine correlated with percentage changes in plasma creatine kinase both immediately post race, (r = 0.972, P , 0.001), and 24h later (r = 0.872, P , 0.001), possibly indicating that the source of the taurine was muscle. Significant correlations between the individual values for urinary and plasma amino acids in all of the athletes were calculated for taurine (r = 0.528), glycine (r = 0.853), threonine (r = 0.749), alanine (r = 0.747), serine (r = ...

There has been studies and research looking into Type 2 diabetes and finding that it may be the result of the bodys genetics as a way to survive winters without food and "stocking up" during summer months, etc. There was research into Native American Indians that showed evidence that genetics has led to the body actually allowing those who are "Type 2" prone to actually have survived in the past due to this, etc. Well, anyhow, this is controversial at this point. But a recent look at statistics in the U.S. has shown that while obesity in the U.S. has grown DRAMATICALLY in the last 2 years, there is NO increase in Type 2 diabetes. What this indicates is that obesity doesnt CAUSE Type 2 diabetes in any way...but rather, that the genetics that lead to the development of Type 2 diabetes ALSO make people prone to obesity. In other words, obesity is NOT a cause of Type 2 diabetes...but rather a co-symptom of the genetics that lead to Type 2 diabetes. This is good news and bad. First, it means that ...

Also claims protein can spike insulin just as much if not more than carbs and that a high insulin response isnt a bad thing.... This was on the SC forum though, best to keep it to the blog post.

Levodopa (L-DOPA) is the naturally occurring precursor amino acid for dopamine and the main therapeutic agent for neurologic disorders due to dopamine depletion, such as Parkinsons disease. Levodopa absorption in small intestine has been suggested to be mediated by the large neutral amino acids transport machinery, but the identity of the involved transporters is unknown. Clinically, co-administration of levodopa and dietary amino acids is avoided to decrease competition for transport in intestine and at the blood brain barrier. Levodopa is routinely co-administered with levodopa metabolism inhibitors (dopa decarboxylase and cathechol-o-methyl transferase inhibitors) that share structural similarity with levodopa. In this systematic study involving Xenopus laevis oocytes and MDCK epithelia expression systems and ex vivo preparations from wild type and knockout mice, we identified the neutral and dibasic amino acids exchanger (antiporter) b0,+AT-rBAT (SLC7A9-SLC3A1) as the luminal intestinal ...

The thought that comes to mind is that what makes one person have a leaky gut for hours and another person has a leaky gut for just minutes. This leads to our understanding that a person must have a genetic predisposition to a disease. We cant fix predisposition because that it what we get from our parents. But it is only with the environmental trigger, however, that a person actually becomes sick. Fasano and others believe that many autoimmune diseases are affected by food sensitivities and changes in the microbiome at an early age. The leaky gut has been associated with other autoimmune diseases such as type I diabetes.[i] Type I diabetes is one such autoimmune disease which a patients own immune system attacks the insulin producing beta cells. Without insulin, our bodies are unable to process sugars and convert them to a storage form, fat. The link between how the leaky gut triggers immune reactions that attack the pancreas in some people and cause type I diabetes and in others creates ...

The tests only cover the region of interest that is associated with a specific disease mutation and does not give you a profile of all the dogs genes. The test indicate if the dog is clear (no mutant copies for that gene present), a carrier (only one mutant copy present) or affected (two mutant copies present). In Figure 4 an example of a chromatogram of the region of the gene associated with the PRA-prcd disease is shown. The mutation is indicated within the two lines and is a base pair substitution of a G to an A. Each peak on the graph indicates a different base to represent the sequence of the gene. A clear dog will have a G on both copies of the gene and will never display the symptoms of the disease nor will it pass the mutant gene to its offspring. On the graph only one peak is visible as they align on top of each other. A carrier dog will not display the symptoms of the disease but may pass the gene to its offspring. This dog has a G on one copy of the gene and an A on the other copy ...
