Condition in which the plasma levels of homocysteine and related metabolites are elevated (>13.9 µmol/l). Hyperhomocysteinemia can be familial or acquired. Development of the acquired hyperhomocysteinemia is mostly associated with vitamins B and/or folate deficiency (e.g., PERNICIOUS ANEMIA, vitamin malabsorption). Familial hyperhomocysteinemia often results in a more severe elevation of total homocysteine and excretion into the urine, resulting in HOMOCYSTINURIA. Hyperhomocysteinemia is a risk factor for cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases, osteoporotic fractures and complications during pregnancy.

VITAMIN B 6 refers to several PICOLINES (especially PYRIDOXINE; PYRIDOXAL; & PYRIDOXAMINE) that are efficiently converted by the body to PYRIDOXAL PHOSPHATE which is a coenzyme for synthesis of amino acids, neurotransmitters (serotonin, norepinephrine), sphingolipids, and aminolevulinic acid. During transamination of amino acids, pyridoxal phosphate is transiently converted into PYRIDOXAMINE phosphate. Although pyridoxine and Vitamin B 6 are still frequently used as synonyms, especially by medical researchers, this practice is erroneous and sometimes misleading (EE Snell; Ann NY Acad Sci, vol 585 pg 1, 1990). Most of vitamin B6 is eventually degraded to PYRIDOXIC ACID and excreted in the urine.

Cell growth inhibition by farnesyltransferase inhibitors is mediated by gain of geranylgeranylated RhoB. (1/5837)

Recent results have shown that the ability of farnesyltransferase inhibitors (FTIs) to inhibit malignant cell transformation and Ras prenylation can be separated. We proposed previously that farnesylated Rho proteins are important targets for alternation by FTIs, based on studies of RhoB (the FTI-Rho hypothesis). Cells treated with FTIs exhibit a loss of farnesylated RhoB but a gain of geranylgeranylated RhoB (RhoB-GG), which is associated with loss of growth-promoting activity. In this study, we tested whether the gain of RhoB-GG elicited by FTI treatment was sufficient to mediate FTI-induced cell growth inhibition. In support of this hypothesis, when expressed in Ras-transformed cells RhoB-GG induced phenotypic reversion, cell growth inhibition, and activation of the cell cycle kinase inhibitor p21WAF1. RhoB-GG did not affect the phenotype or growth of normal cells. These effects were similar to FTI treatment insofar as they were all induced in transformed cells but not in normal cells. RhoB-GG did not promote anoikis of Ras-transformed cells, implying that this response to FTIs involves loss-of-function effects. Our findings corroborate the FTI-Rho hypothesis and demonstrate that gain-of-function effects on Rho are part of the drug mechanism. Gain of RhoB-GG may explain how FTIs inhibit the growth of human tumor cells that lack Ras mutations.  (+info)

Hsp60 is targeted to a cryptic mitochondrion-derived organelle ("crypton") in the microaerophilic protozoan parasite Entamoeba histolytica. (2/5837)

Entamoeba histolytica is a microaerophilic protozoan parasite in which neither mitochondria nor mitochondrion-derived organelles have been previously observed. Recently, a segment of an E. histolytica gene was identified that encoded a protein similar to the mitochondrial 60-kDa heat shock protein (Hsp60 or chaperonin 60), which refolds nuclear-encoded proteins after passage through organellar membranes. The possible function and localization of the amebic Hsp60 were explored here. Like Hsp60 of mitochondria, amebic Hsp60 RNA and protein were both strongly induced by incubating parasites at 42 degreesC. 5' and 3' rapid amplifications of cDNA ends were used to obtain the entire E. histolytica hsp60 coding region, which predicted a 536-amino-acid Hsp60. The E. histolytica hsp60 gene protected from heat shock Escherichia coli groEL mutants, demonstrating the chaperonin function of the amebic Hsp60. The E. histolytica Hsp60, which lacked characteristic carboxy-terminal Gly-Met repeats, had a 21-amino-acid amino-terminal, organelle-targeting presequence that was cleaved in vivo. This presequence was necessary to target Hsp60 to one (and occasionally two or three) short, cylindrical organelle(s). In contrast, amebic alcohol dehydrogenase 1 and ferredoxin, which are bacteria-like enzymes, were diffusely distributed throughout the cytosol. We suggest that the Hsp60-associated, mitochondrion-derived organelle identified here be named "crypton," as its structure was previously hidden and its function is still cryptic.  (+info)

The biosynthesis of transfer RNA in insects. II. Isolation of transfer RNA precursors from the posterior silk gland of Bombyx mori. (3/5837)

The occurrence of precursors to tRNA in the post-polysomal fraction of the posterior silk gland of Bombyx mori was demonstrated by pulse-chase labeling and DNA-RNA hybridization competition experiments. These precursors had molecular sizes ranging from 4S to 5S on polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. Analysis of the incorporation of the methyl group from [methyl-14C]methionine revealed that a radioactive peak on polyacrylamide gel appeared in the 4.5S region during brief labeling. This suggested that some methylation occurred at the 4.5S precursor step.  (+info)

Purification and characterization of initiation factor IF-E2 from rabbit reticulocytes. (4/5837)

Initiation factor IF-E2 was isolated from rabbit reticulocytes and purified 120-fold to near homogeneity by ammonium sulfate fractionation, column chromatography on DEAE-cellulose and phosphocellulose, and, when suitable, by sucrose density gradient centrifugation. The factor is a complex protein containing three nonidentical polypeptides of molecular weight 57,000, 52,000, and 36,000. It behaves as a complex throughout its purification and during polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis in nondenaturing buffer but its thress components are readily separated by electrophoresis in denaturing buffers. None of its components corresponds to any of the polypeptides of the other initiation factors or to any proteins of ribosomes washed in buffers containing a high salf concentration. A stoichiometric ratio of 1:1:1 was determined for the three polypeptides; based on the assumption of one copy each per complex, the calculated factor molecular weight is 145,000, a value in agreement with the measured value of 160,000. Initiation factor IF-E2 was radioactively labeled in vitro by reductive alkylation or by phosphorylation with a protein kinase also isolated from rabbit reticulocytes. Neither procedure causes a measurable change in the ability of the factor to form a ternary complex with GTP and the initiator methionyl-tRNA. 5'-Guanylyl-methylenediphosphonate may substitute for GTP, but only at relatively high concentrations. The binding of labeled initiation factor IF-E2 and methionyl-tRNA to the 40 S ribosomal subunit was studied by sucrose density gradient centrifugation. Appreciable binding of the factor is seen only when all three components of the ternary complex are included in the reaction mixture. The binding of either the factor or methionyl-tRNA was not stimulated by the addition of globin messenger RNA and initiation factor IF-E3. It was shown that all three polypeptide components of initiation factor IF-E2 are bound to these nascent initiation complexes.  (+info)

Endothelial dysfunction by acute hyperhomocyst(e)inaemia: restoration by folic acid. (5/5837)

Recent evidence demonstrates that hyperhomocyst(e)inaemia is a novel risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. In patients with chronic hyperhomocyst(e)inaemia, endothelial function is impaired. However, whether hyperhomocyst(e)inaemia per se is a cause or an epiphenomenon of endothelial dysfunction remains unknown. In this study, we examined the effects of methionine-induced acute hyperhomocyst(e)inaemia on human endothelial function. In healthy volunteers we administered methionine (0.1 g/kg body weight, per os), a substrate of homocyst(e)ine, with or without folic acid (20 mg, per os) and examined flow-mediated vasodilatation of the brachial artery by high-resolution ultrasonography as a non-invasive measure of endothelial function. We also measured plasma levels of homocyst(e)ine before and 3, 8 and 24 h after methionine loading. Methionine administration increased plasma levels of homocyst(e)ine by four times the basal level at 8 h (P<0.0001, ANOVA). The plasma levels returned to baseline at 24 h. Flow-mediated vasodilatation was significantly decreased to half of the baseline value at 8 h and returned to baseline at 24 h (P<0.0001, ANOVA), whereas endothelium-independent vasodilatation by glyceryl trinitrate was not affected by the methionine loading. Co-administration of folic acid did not attenuate methionine-induced hyperhomocyst(e)inaemia but completely prevented endothelial dysfunction. Our results suggest that in humans a methionine-rich diet may acutely impair endothelial function, which can be prevented by folic acid supplementation.  (+info)

cAMP inhibits translation by inducing Ca2+/calmodulin-independent elongation factor 2 kinase activity in IPC-81 cells. (6/5837)

Treatment of IPC-81 cells led to inhibition of protein synthesis, which was accompanied by an increase in the average size of polysomes and a decreased rate of elongation, indicating that it involved inhibition of peptide chain elongation. This inhibition was also associated with increased phosphorylation of elongation factor eEF2 (which inhibits its activity) and enhanced Ca2+/calmodulin-independent activity of eEF2 kinase. Previous work has shown that phosphorylation of eEF2 kinase by cAMP-dependent protein kinase (cAPK) in vitro induces such activator-independent activity, and the present data show that such a mechanism can occur in intact cells to link physiological levels of cAPK activation with inhibition of protein synthesis.  (+info)

Insulin and TSH promote growth in size of PC Cl3 rat thyroid cells, possibly via a pathway different from DNA synthesis: comparison with FRTL-5 cells. (7/5837)

In the rat thyroid cell lines PC Cl3, FRTL- 5 and WRT, proliferation is mainly regulated by insulin or IGF, and TSH. However, the mechanism regulating cell mass doubling prior to division is still unknown. Our laboratory has shown that in dog thyroid cells insulin promotes growth in size while TSH in the presence of insulin triggers DNA replication. In the absence of insulin, TSH has no effect on cell growth. In this report we investigated insulin action on both cell mass and DNA synthesis and its modulation by TSH and insulin in PC Cl3 and FRTL-5 cells. In PC Cl3 cells, insulin activated not only DNA synthesis but also protein synthesis and accumulation. Although TSH potentiated the stimulation of DNA synthesis induced by insulin, enhancement of protein synthesis by both agents was additive. All TSH effects were reproduced by forskolin. Similar effects were also obtained in FRTL-5 cells. This suggests that insulin and TSH, via cAMP, modulate both growth in size and DNA replication in these cell lines. Lovastatin, which blocks 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl coenzyme A reductase, decreased the induction of DNA synthesis, but not of protein synthesis induced by insulin or TSH in PC Cl3 cells. In FRTL-5 cells, lovastatin reduced protein and DNA synthesis stimulated by insulin but not TSH-induced protein synthesis. Taking these data together, we propose that insulin and/or TSH both modulate cell mass doubling and DNA synthesis in these cell lines, presumably via different pathways, and that there are at least two pathways which regulate growth in size in FRTL-5 thyroid cells: one triggered by insulin, which is lovastatin sensitive, and the other activated by TSH, which is not sensitive to lovastatin.  (+info)

Is human thioredoxin monomeric or dimeric? (8/5837)

We have examined the molecular weight and rotational correlation time of human thioredoxin by analytical ultracentrifugation and NMR spectroscopy, respectively. Two variants of human thioredoxin were studied, namely human thioredoxin identical in amino acid sequence to the one whose NMR structure we previously determined (C62A, C69A, C73A, M74T) and human thioredoxin (C62A, C69A, C73A, M74) containing the wild-type amino acid methionine at position 74. In both cases, the experimental data indicate that the predominant species is monomeric and we find no evidence for the existence of a well-defined dimeric form as was observed in the recently reported crystal structure (Weichsel et al., 1996) of human thioredoxin and the C73S mutant.  (+info)

The objective of this meta-analysis was to evaluate the response of growing-finishing pigs to different dietary methionine sources and to determine the ideal methionine:lysine ratio for nursery to finishing pigs. Data were obtained from peer-reviewed journals. Information were extracted from the material and methods and results sections of pre-selected articles. Forty one articles were included in the first database. Graphical and correlation analyses, multivariate exploratory analysis of factors, variance-covariance analysis, and non-linear models were applied to estimate nutritional requirements. Eighty-three percent of the articles in the database were not used for the determination of the methionine:lysine ratio because the diets did not meet the pigs lysine requirements. Methionine sources were compared using 21 articles of the first database, and performance differences were not found (P,0.05) among pigs fed diets containing L-methionine, DL-methionine, or methionine hydroxy analog.

Twenty-four high producing Holstein cows (14 primiparous and 10 multiparous) were fed concentrate mix containing heat-treated soybean meal without or with 15 g of added DL-methionine daily provided as 50 g of ruminally protected methionine product during wk 4 through 16 postpartum. The 15% crude protein mixed diets contained 30% (dry matter basis) corn silage, 15% alfalfa hay, and 55% concentrate mix. Covariant adjusted yields of milk (34.6 and 33.1 kg/d), 4% fat-corrected milk (28.4 and 27.6 kg/d), and solids-corrected milk (29.0 and 28.5 kg/d) were not increased by feeding supplemental methionine. Percentages of fat (2.81 and 2.92) and protein (2.88 and 2.92) were similar, whereas total solids (11.49 and 12.69) and solids-not-fat (8.68 and 8.77) were higher with supplemental methionine. Dry matter intakes (20.2 and 21.0 kg/d) were higher when cows were fed supplemental methionine. Ruminal pH, volatile fatty acids, and ammonia as well as blood serum urea and glucose were generally unaffected by
TY - JOUR. T1 - Dietary serine and cystine attenuate the homocysteine-raising effect of dietary methionine: a randomized, crossover trial in humans.. AU - Verhoef, P.. AU - Steenge, G.R.. AU - Boelsma, E.. AU - van Vliet, T.. AU - Olthof, M.R.. AU - Katan, M.B.. PY - 2004. Y1 - 2004. N2 - Background: A high plasma total homocysteine (tHcy) concentration is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease. The increase in tHcy induced by methionine, the sole dietary precursor of homocysteine, might be modulated by other amino acids present in dietary proteins. Objectives: Our objectives were to compare the postprandial effect of free and dietary methionine on plasma tHcy concentrations and to investigate whether serine and cystine modify the effect of free methionine on tHcy. Design: We conducted a randomized crossover trial in 24 healthy men. Each subject ingested 4 meals on separate days, which were separated by 1 wk. tHcy concentrations were measured in the fasting state and at 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, and 24 ...
Cysteine and methionine are sulfur-containing amino acids. Cysteine is synthesized from serine through different pathways in different organism groups. In bacteria and plants, cysteine is converted from serine (via acetylserine) by transfer of hydrogen sulfide [MD:M00021]. In animals, methionine-derived homocysteine is used as sulfur source and its condensation product with serine (cystathionine) is converted to cysteine [MD:M00338]. Cysteine is metabolized to pyruvate in multiple routes. Methionine is an essential amino acid, which animals cannot synthesize. In bacteria and plants, methionine is synthesized from aspartate [MD:M00017]. S-Adenosylmethionine (SAM), synthesized from methionine and ATP, is a methyl group donor in many important transfer reactions including DNA methylation for regulation of gene expression. SAM may also be used to regenerate methionine in the methionine salvage pathway [MD:M00034 ...

Researchers in ageing knew for some time that the amino acid methionine plays an important part in protein synthesis, and that reducing it from the diet
The experiment was conducted to investigate the effect of stocking density and incremental methionine levels on performance, immune response, carcass traits, and digestive organs of broiler chicks. A total of 390 day-old broiler chicks (Ross 308) were allocated to six dietary treatments and five replicates base on 3 × 2 factorial arrangement in a completely randomized design. Experimental diets included three levels of stocking density (12, 16 and 18 birds/m2) and two levels of methionine (100 and 120% requirement recommended for Ross 308) applied during 42 days of experiment. The results showed that 18 birds density decreased body weight and weight gain, feed intake and increased feed conversion ratio (P|0.05) in overall rearing period. The 120% methionine level tended to increase body weight at 42 day of age. Stocking density significantly (P|0.05) affected the relative weight of proventriculus, pancreas, gizzard and duodenum. The jejunum relative weight and ileum length of chicks received 120%

ERASMUS, L.J; BESTER, Z and COERTZE, R.J. Milk composition as technique to evaluate the relative bioavailability of a liquid rumen protected methionine source. S. Afr. j. anim. sci. [online]. 2013, vol.43, suppl.1, pp.86-92. ISSN 2221-4062.. Rumen protected amino acids (RPAA) are increasingly being used in dairy cattle diet formulation to obtain the required concentrations of lysine and methionine in metabolisable protein for optimal milk and milk protein production. The objective of this study was to evaluate the relative bioavailability of a liquid rumen protected lysine prototype using the milk composition technique. Forty mid-lactation Holstein cows were used in a complete randomised block design experiment and allocated to one of four experimental treatments. The treatments were: (1) Methionine deficient (Met-) diet, (2) Met- diet supplemented with Smartamine M (SMM), (3) Met- diet supplemented with liquid rumen protected prototype (LRPMet) and (4) Met- diet supplemented with DL Met ...
Objective: To test the hypothesis that an acute increase in plasma homocysteine produced by methionine is associated with an acute increase in pulse wave velocity.. Design: A double blind, cross over, placebo controlled design was used and pulse wave velocity, plasma homocysteine, total cholesterol: high density lipoprotein ratio, plasma triglyceride, oxidised low density lipoprotein cholesterol concentrations, apolipoproteins A1 and B, and C reactive protein were measured between 12.5 and 20 hours after methionine loading or placebo.. Results: Between 12.5 and 20 hours after exposure to a methionine loading test, arterial pulse wave velocity showed no significant difference compared with placebo. At 12 hours after exposure to the methionine loading test, in the presence of a controlled diet, triglyceride concentration significantly increased by 32.6% (p,0.02), cholesterol: high density lipoprotein ratio increased significantly by 22.5% (p,0.05) compared with placebo. Simultaneously, systolic ...

Oxidative stress and the formation of amyloid plaques containing amyloid-β (Aβ) peptides are two key hallmarks of Alzheimers disease. A proportion of methionine (Met) at position 35 within Aβ is oxidized to methionine sulphoxide (Met(OX)) within the Alzheimers plaques. These oxidative processes may be the key to understanding the early stages of Alzheimers disease. In vitro oxidation of Aβ, by the physiological oxidant H2O2, was monitored using (1)H NMR and mass spectrometry. Here we investigate the effect of Aβ methionine oxidation on fiber formation kinetics and morphology using the amyloid specific fluorescence dye Thioflavin T (ThT) and Transmission Electron Microscopy (TEM). Methionine oxidation reduces the total amount of fibers generated for both dominant forms of Aβ, however there are marked differences in the effect of Met(OX) between Aβ(1-40) and Aβ(1-42). Surprisingly the presence of Met(OX) reduces lag-times for Aβ(1-40) fiber formation but extends lag-times for ...

https://www.fightaging.org/archives/2014/05/a-report-from-the-first-international-mini-symposium-on-methionine-restriction-and-lifespan.php Methionine is an essential amino acid. Our metabolism cannot produce it, but is nonetheless an important raw material for the manufacture of proteins, and thus must be obtained in the diet. If you dont obtain enough of it, you die. Fortunately just about any sensible diet, and even most deficient diets, contain far more than you actually need to get by. Very few foodstuffs are lacking in methionine.. If you are the sort who likes undertaking strict and novel diets for the inherent challenge involved, rather than the outcome, then you should give up whatever you are doing right now and give a low methionine diet a try. You will be faced with challenging research to identify appropriate levels of methionine for a human low methionine diet, poor and contradictory nutritional data on the methionine content of various foodstuffs, and a comprehensive avoidance ...
And in reality, that makes perfect sense. Our hair has very little to do with improving the quality of our health, and thats why it is sacrificed by the body to protect more critical functions.. To really nourish and sustain healthy hair growth a diet which contains high levels of the fol-lowing active ingredients are important.. A side effect of these simple diet choices is the possibility of better health!. Sulphurated amino acids. Two of the sulphurated amino acids for new hair growth are L-methionine and L-cysteine. These are the basic building blocks of hair, they are essential for the formation of keratin and promote hair growth.. Your body can and does produce some cysteine on its own from another amino acid - methionine, which is also a sulfur-containing amino acid.

The metabolism of the polyamines spermidine and spermine is known to be enhanced in rapidly proliferating cells. Methionine is a precursor of the aminopropyl moieties of these amines. Therefore, it was of interest to study the effects of a methionine supplemented diet on polyamine metabolism and preneoplastic changes occurring in the intestinal tract of rats treated with the chemical carcinogen azoxymethane (AOM). Adult Wistar rats received 15 mg AOM/kg body wt (i.p.) once each week for 2 weeks. Thereafter, the rats were randomly divided into two groups and received controlled isoenergetic diets containing the same amount of folate, choline and vitamin B12 during 12 weeks: one group was kept on a standard diet; the other was fed the same diet, except that 1% L-methionine was added at the expense of carbohydrates. After 12 weeks, the administration of the methionine-supplemented diet stimulated the turnover rate of ileal epithelial cells, indicating enhanced crypt cell proliferation. Furthermore, ...
Of the 20 canonical amino acids, 18 are composed of carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, and oxygen only. The remaining 2, methionine and cysteine, also contain 1 atom of sulfur. Because sulfur is not as electronegative as oxygen, the sulfur-containing amino acids play a key role in protein structure and synthesis.2 Methionine and cysteine also play important roles in cell metabolism. For instance, methionine serves as a substrate for S-adenosylmethionine, which is vital for methylation of nucleic acids, proteins, lipids, etc. In proteins, cysteine easily forms double bonds with other cysteine residues, thus determining tertiary structure and binding sites. Moreover, cysteine is substrate for glutathione, an important intracellular antioxidant, and H2S, a gas that can induce endothelial-dependent relaxation.3 Cysteine is considered a nonessential amino acid because it is synthesized from the essential amino acid methionine. However, because homocysteine lies in the pathway between methionine and ...
Methionine belongs to the group of essential amino acids. It contains sulfur and is used mainly for the translation process in protein synthesis, and it is the first amino acid to be attached during the process of building a polypeptide chain that will build the final protein.. As methionine is an organic chemical compound, it can be found in various forms, including S-adenosylmethionine, which is a derivative of adenosine and methionine. S-adenosylmethionine is the metabolically active form of methionine, which is a donor of methyl (-CH3) groups. Methyl groups are transferred to amine compounds with the participation of enzymes of the methyltransferases group. In this respect, methionine takes an active part in the bodys detoxification process, as well as regulating keratinization - the process of the epidermis, hair, and nails production.. Moreover, methionine is an element necessary for the synthesis of nucleic acids, choline, glycine, creatine phosphate, and adrenaline as it increases the ...

[11C]methionine (MET) has been used to monitor amino acid metabolism in tumors, the pancreas, liver, and myocardium. The aim of the present study was to standardize [11C]MET positron emission tomography (PET) by optimizing the timing of initiation of the scan and applying correction to the plasma concentrations of neutral amino acids (NAAs), where necessary. Sequential whole-body MET PET/computed tomography (CT) was performed in 11 normal adults after they had fasted for at least 4 h. After whole-body CT for attenuation correction and intravenous bolus injection of MET, the subjects were scanned from the parietal to the groin. The scanning was repeated six to seven times. Decay of radioactivity during the PET scan was corrected to the time of initiation of the first scan. The standardized uptake values (SUVs) were evaluated in various organs by setting regions of interest on the tomographic images. Plasma concentrations of NAAs were examined in relation to the SUV values. The SUVs in the pancreas

The amino acid methionine can enhance the survival capacity of embryos, when added to the cows diet during the prepartum and postpartum periods.
The accessibility of methionines in RNAase A to reaction with OBQ has been studied at highly acidic pH. The differences between the rate constants of reactions of the methionine and methionines of RNAase A with OBQ is a reflection on the limited accessibility of methionines in the protein conformation. Nevertheless, at sufficiently high OBQ concentration, all the four methionines of the enzyme can be modified. At lower concentration of OBQ, a derivative may be prepared in which a specific methionine is modified. The introduced chromophore ionizes at around pH 3 in this derivative. The derivative has partial activity towards RNA which is enhanced on addition of S-protein. ...

On the other hand, it was found that the amino acid methionine, and BTSAA amino acids (leucine, isoleucine and valine) stimulate the activity of the signal protein - kinase TOR. protein kinase TOR activity reduces life expectancy because of the fact that this protein activates the processes of synthesis of new proteins in orgasm at the expense of recycling of old that just clog up the cell. Elevated levels of the old damaged proteins leads to accelerated aging of body cells. It turns out that the reduction in methionine diet significantly prolong the life of man. As it turned out the high level of methionine in the diet reduces life expectancy, obesity triggers (direct factor for stroke and heart attack), increases cell receptor sensitivity to insulin (triggers diabetes and arteriosclerosis), increases blood sugar levels. Diets low in methionine show surprising results. They reduce the risk of some diseases and prolong life expectancy. Lets understand this paradox ...

Methionine is an essential amino acid-one of the building blocks of proteins and peptides that your body cannot manufacture from other chemicals. The body uses methionine to manufacture creatine and uses the sulfur in methionine for normal metabolism and growth. One preliminary study suggests that methionine can prevent bacteria from sticking to urinary tract cells, 1 which may make it useful for preventing bladder infections. ( Cranberry juice is thought to help reduce the incidence of bladder infections in a similar fashion.)

One of the problems with grains is their poor protein quality. Besides containing a fairly low concentration of protein to begin with, they also dont contain a good balance of essential amino acids. This prevents their efficient use by the body, unless a separate source of certain amino acids is eaten along with them. The main limiting amino acid in grains is lysine. Legumes are rich in lysine, which is why cultures around the world pair them with grains. Bacterial fermentation produces lysine, often increasing its concentration by many fold and making grains nearly a complete protein, i.e. one that contains the ideal balance of essential amino acids as do animal proteins (11, scroll down to see graph). Not very many plant foods can make that claim. Fermentation also increases the concentration of the amino acid methionine and certain vitamins ...
Is there a soy barrier in aquafeeds? Reduced performance in high-soy feeds has been blamed on antinutrients, low methionine content and palatability issues.
One of the essential requirements of a good doggie food is that its first 5 key ingredients should be proteins, with an animal protein receiving primacy over plant-based proteins. It is true that certain plants also contain proteinaceous substances. However, when compared to animal proteins, it lacks certain amino acids that the dogs body cannot produce. For instance, the amino acids methionine, isoleucine, tryptophan, and lycine are found in very scarce amounts in certain plants whereas the same amino acids are quite abundant in animal proteins.. But what are amino acids anyway? This is the smallest unit that makes up a protein. It is similar to glucose, fructose, and lactose from carbohydrates and fatty acids from fat. When food is digested it is essentially broken down into its component molecules. The smallest possible molecule that can ever come from a protein is an amino acid.. Food is composed of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates which are then broken down into their smallest components. ...

TY - CHAP. T1 - Protective roles of transsulfuration against methionine toxicity. AU - Kamata, Shotaro. AU - Ishii, Isao. PY - 2013/4/1. Y1 - 2013/4/1. N2 - Methionine is an essential amino acid in mammals, but is the most toxic among the constituent amino acids of proteins. Excessive methionine intake causes oxidative/nitrosative injuries in the liver, hepatic/splenic hypertrophy, altered erythrocyte morphology, and the resultant splenic hemosiderosis in rats; however, the pathophysiology of methionine-induced liver toxicity remains to be elucidated. Methionine can be metabolized into cysteine by methionine cycle and transsulfuration, and cysteine can be further metabolized into cytoprotective metabolites such as glutathione, taurine, and hydrogen sulfide (H2S). We recently found that a methionine-rich diet induces acute lethal hepatitis in transsulfuration-defective cystathionine γ-lyase-deficient mice. Molecular mechanisms by which methionine excess induces hepatic dysfunction and ...
Effect of Methionine Supplementation on Performance and Carcass Characteristics of Awassi Ram Lambs Fed Finishing Diets - Ram Lambs;Methionine, Digestibility;Carcass Characteristics;
Methionine metabolism is critical for the maintenance of embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) pluripotency. However, little is known about the regulation of the methionine cycle to sustain ESC pluripotency. Here, we show that adenosylhomocysteinase (AHCY), an important enzyme in the methionine cycle, is critical for the maintenance and differentiation of mouse embryonic stem cells (mESCs). We show that mESCs exhibit high levels of methionine metabolism, whereas decreasing methionine metabolism via depletion of AHCY promotes mESCs to differentiate into the three germ layers. AHCY is posttranslationally modified with an O-linked β-N-acetylglucosamine sugar (O-GlcNAcylation), which is rapidly removed upon differentiation.

My first canary memory was early childhood as my mother raised about 100 canaries each year. During the breeding season, she was always finding a young chick which she said needed hand feeding. I would use a toothpick to stuff its crop with eggfood. It never occurred to me that each time it was a different chick! I still have a weakness for hand feeding although I rarely do it as the mothers food is far superior. When I was 16, I adopted an elderly grandmother and she raised German rollers. I would sit for hours and listen to her green roller singers. I banded my first birds in 1980. I achieved master breeder exhibitor status in color-bred canaries and German Rollers. I became a judge and hold judging credentials from the Central States Roller Canary, National Colorbred, Stafford Canary, North American Border and Old Varieties Canary Associations. I have judged shows all over the US including Puerto Rico and Canada. My book The Complete Canary Handbook, Canary Tales is in its 14th edition ...
The reaction of iodoacetic acid with bovine lutropin (luteinizing hormone) at pH 3.0 was specific for methionine residues; it was slow and reached its equilibrium after 12 h at 37 degrees C. The number of modified methionine residues increased proportionately with the amount of the alkylating reagent in the reaction mixture. In the presence of a 20-fold molar excess of iodoacetic acid with respect to methionine, essentially all methionine residues in both subunits of bovine lutropin were carboxymethylated. Studies of various recombinations of modified and native alpha and beta subunits showed that methionine residues in bovine lutropin were not essential for interactions between subunits. Various recombinants were characterized by polyacrylamide-gel electrophoresis and gel filtration of Sephadex G-100. Immunological cross-reactivity by radioimmunoassay of the recombinants of modified alpha and beta subunits was relatively similar to that of the native subunits. However, the biological activity ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Prolonged acetaminophen ingestion in mice. T2 - effects on the availability of methionine for metabolic functions.. AU - Reicks, M.. AU - Hathcock, J. N.. PY - 1989/7. Y1 - 1989/7. N2 - The objective of this study was to determine the effect of prolonged ingestion of acetaminophen (ACAP) on the availability of methionine for its metabolic functions in mice. ACAP was fed to weanling mice at levels of 0.0, 0.3, 0.5 or 0.8% of the diet, with methionine provided at requirement (0.5%) or at twice the requirement (1.0%) level, for 2 wk to assess its effect on the availability of methionine for growth. In another study, ACAP was fed to adult mice at levels of 0.0, 0.4, or 0.6% of the diet, with methionine at 0.5 or 1.0% of the diet, for 2 wk to assess its effect on the availability of methionine for protein synthesis and methylation reactions. The growth rate of weanling mice decreased with increasing dietary ACAP in mice fed 0.5% methionine, but not in those fed 1.0%. Hepatic reduced ...
Two experiments (mid- and late lactation) were conducted to test whether methionine (Met) limited milk production in Friesian cows fed sole diets of fresh perennial ryegrass-white clover pasture. In mid-lactation (exp. 1), 26 cows were assigned to one of three treatments: ruminally protected oral DL-Met (15 g d−1), continuous intrajugular infusion of L-Met (15 g d-1) and control. Twelve animals from exp. 1 were used during late lactation (exp. 2) and distributed in two experimental groups: ruminally protected oral DL-Met (15 g d−1) and control. Dry matter, metabolizable energy, crude protein and Met intakes, milk yield and composition and blood Met, cysteine and urea were measured. Oral and intravenous Met supplementation increased blood Met concentration by 50-90% compared with controls. Met supplementation did not alter the concentration of milk fat, protein or lactose in either experiment. Met supplementation had no significant effects on yields of fat, lactose, casein, whey proteins or non
Dietary methionine restriction (MR) and calorie restriction (CR) each improve metabolic health and extend life span. We used comprehensive transcriptome profiling and systems biology analysis to interrogate the unique and overlapping molecular responses in rats provided these dietary regimens for 20 mo after weaning. Microarray analysis was conducted on inguinal white adipose (IWAT), brown adipose tissue (BAT), liver, and skeletal muscle. Compared to controls, CR-induced transcriptomic responses (absolute fold change ≥1.5 and P≤0.05) were comparable in IWAT, BAT, and liver (~800 genes). MR-induced effects were largely restricted to IWAT and liver (~2400 genes). Pathway enrichment and gene-coexpression analyses showed that induction of fatty acid synthesis in IWAT was common to CR and MR, whereas immunity and proinflammatory signaling pathways were specifically down-regulated in MR-treated IWAT and liver (FDR≤0.07-0.3). BAT demonstrated consistent down-regulation of PPAR-signaling under CR ...

article{28a73216-cb79-4da4-9c2e-f0213dfb2b2d, abstract = {During evolution of land plants, a specific motif occurred in the N-terminal domain of the chloroplast-localized small heat shock protein, Hsp21: a sequence with highly conserved methionines, which is predicted to form an amphipathic -helix with the methionines situated along one side. The functional role of these conserved methionines is not understood. We have found previously that treatment, which causes methionine sulfoxidation in Hsp21, also leads to structural changes and loss of chaperone-like activity. Here, mutants of Arabidopsis thaliana Hsp21 protein were created by site-directed mutagenesis, whereby conserved methionines were substituted by oxidation-resistant leucines. Mutants lacking the only cysteine in Hsp21 were also created. Protein analyses by nondenaturing electrophoresis, size exclusion chromatography, and circular dichroism proved that sulfoxidation of the four highly conserved methionines (M49, M52, M55, and M59) is ...
ENGLISH ABSTRACT: CPM Dairy was developed to maintain amino acid balance. because the correct amino acid relationship has an influence on milk production and milk composition (Schwab e/ af. 1992, Rulquin e/ af. 1993). Rulquin e/ af. (1993) found that an increase in lysine and methionine concentration in the diet had no meaningful effect on milk production and milkfat production. However, milk protein production is described as a function of lysine and methionine concentration. In order to balance the amino acid relationships, the CNCPS model has been adopted, using the following guidelines: I. a dairy cow feed characteristic scheme, described by Van Soest e/ af. (1991) and Sniffen e/ aI. (1992), II. a model for rumen fermentation and bacterial growth in the dairy cow, described by Russel e/ af. (1992), Ill. feed val ues for dairy cow feeds, described by Sniffen e/ af. (1992). IV. a set of formulas describing the feeding needs of dairy cows under different circumstances, assembled by Fox e/ af. ...
Hoof wall is approximately 93% protein on a dry matter basis. Horses consuming too little protein have slowed hoof growth and tend to produce inferior quality horn. As a result, the hooves will be at increased risk of problems such as cracking and splitting and, once an issue does occur, it will take far longer for it to grow out.. The composition of the hoof wall is predominantly an insoluble protein called keratin. Keratin is also found in the skin and the hair. Keratin, like all proteins, is made up of a chain of amino acids. The amino acid cysteine accounts for as much as 24% of the total amino acids in keratin. Methionine, an essential amino acid, is also present in keratin but only in small amounts. The role of methionine in hoof formation is in producing cysteine, as the horse can convert dietary methionine into cysteine.. The amino acids methionine and cysteine both contain sulphur, which is an essential element in the formation of keratin. The sulphur components of these amino acids ...
The present study demonstrated that under strictly controlled dietary conditions plasma levels of Hcy shows significant daily rhythmicity, which is independent of the 24-h cycle of sleep and wake, with a peak at around 2200 to 2400. Previously, similar rhythmicity in Hcy with an evening peak was reported in obese diabetic patients by Bremner et al [12] and with nocturnal peak in rats by Baydas et al [13]. We further extended these findings by demonstrating that daily rhythms exist also in normal young adults. In contrast to Hcy, there was no daily rhythmicity in methionine, leucine, isoleucine and tyrosine, in which the 24-h pattern followed both the timing of sleep and the feeding schedule.. Homocysteine is a non-protein sulfur containing amino acid, and an intermediate in the metabolism of the essential amino acid methionine. The metabolism of Hcy is accomplished by two major pathways, remethylation into methionine and transsulfuration to cystationine [14]. In remethylation, Hcy acquires a ...
d-Methionine is an effective methionine source for Escherichia coli (5, 11, 14). The transport system reported to take up d-methionine in E. coli is encoded by the metD locus (11, 12). The system was found to be energized by ATP and regulated by the level of the internal methionine pool (10, 11, 13). The metD locus was mapped between the fhuA (previously called tonA) and the proA loci (12). The specific genes involved in d-methionine transport have not yet been reported.. We have identified the abc-yaeE-yaeC gene cluster (now renamed metNIQ genes) as a likely candidate for the metD locus in the fhuA-proA region. The abc gene was previously found in a search for ABC transporter ATP-binding domains (1). The PROSITE program (6) indicated that the Abc protein harbors an ATP- and GTP-binding site motif A (P-loop) (24) and an ABC transporter family signature (4). Gene yaeE encodes a putative membrane protein with a high sequence similarity to several bacterial amino acid transporters and contains a ...
There were significant (P,0.05) differences among treatment means of all the parameters and they all followed a similar pattern. Birds fed D4 and D5 diets had significantly higher (P,0.05) body weight (698g and 710g) and body weight gain (22.25g and 22.57g) than birds fed D2 (body weight 521g, daily weight gain 15.74g) but were similar to those fed D1 control (body weight 698g, daily weight gain 20.36g) and D3 (body weight 640g, daily weight gain 18.40g).. The feed conversion ratios and protein efficiency ratios of D5 (3.11 and 1.51), D4 (3.06 and 1.49) and D1 (3.00 and 1.53) were significantly higher (P,0.05) than those of D2 (4.19 and 1.09) but similar to those of D3 (3.48 and 1.32). This may be as a result of the high energy and high digestibility of palm oil, its role as a binder of mash grains to reduce ulcerogenic effect of the birds gastric mucosa, increase in feed intake as compared to non-supplemented CCM diets.. The depression of the final live weight of birds fed D2 (60% CCM) ...

2 Department of Aquaculture, Faculty of Fisheries and Aquaculture, Sinop University, Sinop, Turkey DOI : 10.4194/1303-2712-v15_1_13 Viewed : 1527 - Downloaded : 1147 In the research, the effects of diets, including hazelnut meal supplemented with synthetic lysine and methionine, on development of rainbow trout were investigated. Six isonitrogenous and isocaloric diets were prepared. One of them was a fish meal based on control diet and the others were diets containing hazelnut meal (HM) with the increasing percentages as follows: 10 %, 20, 30, 40 and 50. In order to balance lysine and methionine of the diets as much as possible, synthetic lysine and methionine were added to each diet except the control diet which was based on the lysine and methionine content of the control diet. Rainbow trouts (114.16±0.03 g) were stocked in three replications for each group and fed with test diets twice a day until apparent satiation during 60 days. There were no significant differences among groups in terms ...
Brain Energy combines Dopamine, Methionine, Tyrosine, Octacosanol and Rhodiola to create a supplement that increases brain energy. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that affects motor movements and emotion. Phenylalanine is an essential amino acid which means you have to get it in your diet. This amino acid affects mood and a sense of well being. Tyrosine is a conditional amino acid that is n necessary for the synthesis of proteins and is a precursor of some transmitters such as dopamine, epinephrine and norepinephrine. Rhodiola is an adaptogen which may help the bodys resistance to various stresses in life both mental and physical. This botanical may help to stimulate higher energy levels and elevate mood. The essential amino acid Methionine is important for making proteins and octacosanol may help to regenerate nerve fibers, boost energy and repair muscle fiber cells.

S-adenosyl methionine (SAM-e) a derivative of the amino acid methionine found in the human body, act as a methyl donor and is involved in various biochemical reactions. In clinical trials involving SAM-e, it has shown to be effective as standard-antidepressant medication, with fewer side effects.. ...
Each amino acid has an amine group and a carboxylic group. Amino acids link to one another by peptide bonds which form through a dehydration reaction that joins the carboxyl group of one amino acid to the amine group of the next in a head-to-tail manner to form a polypeptide chain. The chain has two ends - an amine group, the N-terminus, and an unbound carboxyl group, the C-terminus.[2] When a protein is translated from messenger RNA, it is created from N-terminus to C-terminus. The amino end of an amino acid (on a charged tRNA) during the elongation stage of translation, attaches to the carboxyl end of the growing chain. Since the start codon of the genetic code codes for the amino acid methionine, most protein sequences start with a methionine (or, in bacteria, mitochondria and chloroplasts, the modified version N-formylmethionine, fMet). However, some proteins are modified posttranslationally, for example, by cleavage from a protein precursor, and therefore may have different amino acids at ...

indicator of cardiovascular problems leading to heart attacks and strokes. It degrades and inhibits the structural components of the arteries: collagen, elastin and proteoglycans. Regulating homocysteine in the blood helps in reducing cardiovascular disease.. So what does folate have to do with homocysteine, you may ask?. Folate along with other B vitamins and some minerals aids in converting excess amounts of the amino acid homocysteine in the blood into the amino acids methionine or cysteine. The amount of homocysteine in the blood is regulated by three B vitamins: B9 (folate), B6 (pyridoxine) and B12 (cyanocobalamin).. Too much bio speak? Folate reduces the amount of homocysteine in the blood thus reducing damage to our artery walls and in doing so helps prevent heart attacks and strokes.. B. Whats in your DNA - brown eyes, good bone structure, clear skin?. Our DNA is the blueprint on which our bodies operate…the instruction manual, so to speak.. Folate coenzymes are involved in the ...
Here, we evaluated the role of MsrA in vascular pathology. MsrA was expressed in all layers of the arterial wall of humans and mice, with high levels in VSMC. MsrA deficiency did not affect susceptibility to atherosclerosis or thrombosis in established experimental mouse models. In contrast, neointimal area was significantly increased in MsrA−/− mice when compared with MsrA+/+ mice after carotid ligation. Neointimal hyperplasia was primarily because of an increase in VSMC proliferation because of augmented G1/S transition. Parallel experiments in cultured VSMC revealed amplified cyclin D1 protein levels, cyclin D1/cdk4 complex formation, Rb phosphorylation, and increased E2F transcription. MsrA deletion increased activation of the Ras/Raf/MEK/ERK1/2 pathway, resulting in elevated cyclin D1 protein levels. Taken together, these data identify methionine oxidation as a key event in regulation of specific VSMC signaling pathways that mediate the vascular response to injury.. MsrA protein levels ...
The methionine analogue 2-amino-5-hexenoic acid (homoallylglycine, Hag) can be utilized by Escherichia coli in the initiation and elongation steps of protein biosynthesis. Use of an E. coli methionine auxotroph and Hag-supplemented medium resulted in replacement of ca. 85% of the methionine residues in mouse dihydrofolate reductase expressed under control of a bacteriophage T5 promoter. N-terminal sequencing indicated 92±5% occupancy of the initiator site by Hag. The vinyl function of Hag remains intact in the purified protein and suggests new chemistries for modification of natural and artificial proteins prepared in bacterial hosts. ...
Homocysteine S -methyltransferases (HMTs, EC 2.1.1.0) catalyze the conversion of homocysteine to methionine using S -methylmethionine or S -adenosylmethionine as the methyl donor. HMTs play an important role in methionine biosynthesis and are widely distributed among microorganisms, plants, and animals. Additionally, HMTs play a role in metabolite repair of S -adenosylmethionine by removing an inactive diastereomer from the pool. The mmuM gene product from Escherichia coli is an archetypal HMT family protein and contains a predicted Zn-binding motif in the enzyme active site. Here we present X-ray structures for MmuM in oxidized, apo, and metallated forms, representing the first such structures for any member of the HMT family. The structures reveal a metal/substrate binding pocket distinct from those in related enzymes. The presented structure analysis and modelling of co-substrate interactions provide valuable insight into the function of MmuM in both methionine biosynthesis and cofactor ...

Legumes contain relatively low quantities of the essential amino acid methionine (which is found in higher amounts in grains). Grains, on the other hand, contain relatively low quantities of the essential amino acid lysine, which legumes contain. This is why some vegetarian cultures - in order to get a good balance of amino acids needed for growth and repair - combine their diet of legumes with cereal grains. Common examples of such combinations are dhal with rice in India, beans with corn tortillas in Mexico, tofu with rice in Asia and peanut butter with bread in the USA and Australia.. National Nutrition & Physical Activity Survey Analysis. A secondary analysis of The Australian 2011-2012 National Nutrition and Physical Activity Survey (NNPAS) conducted by GLNC has found that Australians who eat legumes at least two times a week have higher intakes of essential nutrients. However, many Australians just dont eat them often enough to benefit from the fibre and plethora of nutrients available in ...
Problem statement: Free Met as one of the most limiting AA in dairy cows would be mostly degraded in the rumen. This study was to determine the effect of different levels of Rumen-Protected Met (RPMet) on dairy performance and serum amino acid metabolism. Approach: Thirty-six Holstein cows in similar condition were randomly assigned to six experimental treatments with six replicates each. Levels of RPMet in six treatments were 0(control), 14, 28, 42, 56 and 70 g day-1 per cow, respectively. Results: Treatment had no effect on percentage of milk protein, lactose and SNF. However, milk yield of cows fed 42 g day-1 RPMet was significantly higher than that of the control group and milk fat percentage was significantly increased with 56 g day-1 RPMet supplementation. There was the trend to decrease the concentration of serum amino acids except Met and Arg with the supplementation of RPMet. Serum EAA contents of the group supplementation of 42 g day-1 RPMet were lowest although there were no significant
