Regulation of chicken erythrocyte AMP deaminase by phytic acid. (1/617)

AMP deaminase [EC 3.5.6.4] purified from chicken erythrocytes was inhibited by phytic acid (inositol hexaphosphate), which is the principal organic phosphate in chicken red cells. Kinetic analysis has indicated that this inhibition is of an allosteric type. The estimated Ki value was within the normal range of phytic acid concentration, suggesting that this compound acts as a physiological effector. Divalent cations such as Ca2+ and Mg2+ were shown to affect AMP deaminase by potentiating inhibition by lower concentrations of phytic acid, and by relieving the inhibition at higher concentrations of phytic acid. These results suggests that Ca2+ and Mg2+ can modify the inhibition of AMP deaminase by phytic acid in chicken red cells.  (+info)

Reactivity of cyanate with valine-1 (alpha) of hemoglobin. A probe of conformational change and anion binding. (2/617)

The 3-fold increase in the carbamylation rate of Val-1 (alpha) of hemoglobin upon deoxygenation described earlier is now shown to be a sensitive probe of conformational change. Thus, whereas this residue in methemoglobin A is carbamylated at the same rate as in liganded hemoglobin, upon addition of inositol hexaphosphate its carbamylation rate is enhanced 30% as much as the total change in the rate between the CO and deoxy states. For CO-hemoglobin Kansas in the presence of the organic phosphate, the relative increase in the carbamylation rate of this residue is about 50%. These results indicate that methemoglobin A and hemoglobin Kansas in the presence of inositol hexaphosphate do not assume a conformation identical with deoxyhemoglobin but rather form either a mixture of R and T states or an intermediate conformation in the region around Val-1 (alpha). Studies on the mechanism for the rate enhancement in deoxyhemoglobin suggest that the cyanate anion binds to groups in the vicinity of Val-1 (alpha) prior to proton transfer and carbamylation of this NH2-terminal residue. Thus, specific removal with carboxypeptidase B of Arg-141 (alpha), which is close to Val-1 (alpha) in deoxyhemoglobin, abolishes the enhancement in carbamylation. Chloride, which has the same valency as cyanate, is a better competitive inhibitor of the carbamylation of deoxyhemoglobin (Ki = 50 mM) compared with liganded hemoglobin. Nitrate and iodide are also effective inhibitors of the carbamylation of Val-1 (alpha) of deoxyhemoglobin (Ki = 35 mM); inorganic phosphate, sulfate, and fluoride are poor competitive inhibitors. The change in pKa of Val-1 (alpha) upon deoxygenation may be due to its differential interaction with chloride.  (+info)

Heterotropic effectors exert more significant strain on monoligated than on unligated hemoglobin. (3/617)

The effect of allosteric effectors, such as inositol hexakisphosphate and/or bezafibrate, has been investigated on the unliganded human adult hemoglobin both spectroscopically (employing electronic absorption, circular dichroism, resonance Raman, and x-ray absorption near-edge spectroscopies) and functionally (following the kinetics of the first CO binding step up to a final 4% ligand saturation degree). All data indicate that the unliganded T-state is not perturbed by the interaction with either one or both effectors, suggesting that their functional influence is only exerted when a ligand molecule is bound to the heme. This is confirmed by the observation that CO dissociation from partially liganded hemoglobin ( +info)

Coupling of the oxygen-linked interaction energy for inositol hexakisphosphate and bezafibrate binding to human HbA0. (4/617)

The energetics of signal propagation between different functional domains (i.e. the binding sites for O2, inositol hexakisphospate (IHP), and bezafibrate (BZF)) of human HbA0 was analyzed at different heme ligation states and through the use of a stable, partially heme ligated intermediate. Present data allow three main conclusions to be drawn, and namely: (i) IHP and BZF enhance each others binding as the oxygenation proceeds, the coupling free energy going from close to zero in the deoxy state to -3.4 kJ/mol in the oxygenated form; (ii) the simultaneous presence of IHP and BZF stabilizes the hemoglobin T quaternary structure at very low O2 pressures, but as oxygenation proceeds it does not impair the transition toward the R structure, which indeed occurs also under these conditions; (iii) under room air pressure (i.e. pO2 = 150 torr), IHP and BZF together induce the formation of an asymmetric dioxygenated hemoglobin tetramer, whose features appear reminiscent of those suggested for transition state species (i.e. T- and R-like tertiary conformation(s) within a quaternary R-like structure).  (+info)

Effect of reducing the phytate content and of partially hydrolyzing the protein in soy formula on zinc and copper absorption and status in infant rhesus monkeys and rat pups. (5/617)

BACKGROUND: Although soy formulas have been designed to meet the nutrient requirements of human infants, they also contain phytate, which may negatively affect trace element absorption. OBJECTIVE: We evaluated the effect of removing phytate on zinc and copper absorption and status in infant rhesus monkeys and suckling rat pups and evaluated differences between intact and partially hydrolyzed soy protein. DESIGN: In monkeys, regular and low-phytate soy formulas were fed exclusively for 4 mo and whole-body absorption and retention of 65Zn, 67Cu, 59Fe, 54Mn, and 47Ca were determined at different time points with a whole-body counter. Subsequently, zinc and copper absorption from several human infant formulas and the effect of phytate concentration were evaluated in suckling rat pups by using 65Zn and 64Cu. Finally, infant rhesus monkeys were fed low-phytate formulas with intact or hydrolyzed soy protein for 4 mo and plasma zinc and copper were measured monthly. RESULTS: In the first monkey study, zinc absorption at 1 mo was higher from low-phytate soy formula (36%) than from regular soy formula (22%), whereas there was no significant difference between groups in the absorption of other minerals. Plasma copper was significantly lower in monkeys fed low-phytate soy formula from 2 to 4 mo. In rat pups, zinc absorption was significantly higher from low-phytate soy formula (78%) than from regular soy formula (51%) and hydrolysis of the protein had no significant effect. Phytate content or protein hydrolysis did not significantly affect copper absorption. In the second monkey study, plasma copper concentrations were highest in monkeys fed the low-phytate, hydrolyzed-protein soy formula. CONCLUSION: Reducing the phytate content and partially hydrolyzing the protein in soy formula had a beneficial effect on zinc and copper absorption and status in infant rhesus monkeys.  (+info)

Cloning and functional expression of the cytoplasmic form of rat aminopeptidase P. (6/617)

A rat cytoplasmic aminopeptidase P was purified from liver cytosol with a procedure including an affinity elution step with 3 microM inositol 1,3,4-trisphosphate. Proteolytic fragments were generated, sequenced and the enzyme was cloned from a rat liver cDNA library. The structure shows high (87.8% and 95.5%, respectively) sequence identity at the nucleotide and amino acid levels with the previously described human putative cytoplasmic aminopeptidase P. The cloned rat enzyme was functionally expressed in Escherichia coli and also in COS-1 cells. Western blot analysis, using an antibody generated against the recombinant protein, and Northern blot hybridization showed ubiquitous expression of the protein in different tissues with the highest expression level in the testis.  (+info)

The effect of inositol hexaphosphate on the absorption spectra of alpha and beta chains in nitrosyl hemoglobin. (7/617)

The spectral changes of nitrosyl hemoglobin on addition of inositol hexaphosphate were studied in hybrid-heme hemoglobins. The results showed that the decrease in absorption in the Soret region was mainly due to a spectral change in alpha chains, and that the tension on heme in the quaternary T structure was much stronger in alpha than in beta chains.  (+info)

Expression of an Aspergillus niger phytase gene (phyA) in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. (8/617)

Phytase improves the bioavailability of phytate phosphorus in plant foods to humans and animals and reduces phosphorus pollution of animal waste. Our objectives were to express an Aspergillus niger phytase gene (phyA) in Saccharomyces cerevisiae and to determine the effects of glycosylation on the phytase's activity and thermostability. A 1.4-kb DNA fragment containing the coding region of the phyA gene was inserted into the expression vector pYES2 and was expressed in S. cerevisiae as an active, extracellular phytase. The yield of total extracellular phytase activity was affected by the signal peptide and the medium composition. The expressed phytase had two pH optima (2 to 2.5 and 5 to 5.5) and a temperature optimum between 55 and 60 degrees C, and it cross-reacted with a rabbit polyclonal antibody against the wild-type enzyme. Due to the heavy glycosylation, the expressed phytase had a molecular size of approximately 120 kDa and appeared to be more thermostable than the commercial enzyme. Deglycosylation of the phytase resulted in losses of 9% of its activity and 40% of its thermostability. The recombinant phytase was effective in hydrolyzing phytate phosphorus from corn or soybean meal in vitro. In conclusion, the phyA gene was expressed as an active, extracellular phytase in S. cerevisiae, and its thermostability was affected by glycosylation.  (+info)

Phytic acid (Myo-inositol 1,2,3,4,5,6 hexa-kisphophate) is a storage form of phosphorus and can accumulate to the levels as high as 35% in the wheat kernel. Phytic acid acts as an inhibitor for macronutrients as well as micronutrients and located in the bran of wheat kernel. Due to its inhibitory role, a high concentration of phytic acid is undesirable as it hinders the bio-availability of some essential nutrients such as Fe, Mg, Ca, Zn and Cu, etc. In order to check the inheritance of phytic acid in wheat kernels, phytic acid concentration was initially determined in kernels of 10 wheat genotypes to identify two contrasting genetic groups for diallel analysis. Based on pre-screening results of 10 wheat genotypes, five wheat genotypes (3 with high and 2 with low phytic acid concentration) were crossed in all possible combinations during 2007-2008 by 5 × 5 full diallel mating fashion to insight the inheritance of phytic acid and other yield contributing traits. All 20 F1 hybrids and five ...
Abstract: The effect of solid state fermentation of Aspergillus niger on millets nutritional quality and phytic acid content were investigated in this study. Ammonium sulphate and urea as Nitrogen sources were used in combination with millet at 10 gN kg 1 substrate. The mixture was fermented for 84 h at 35 C and 90-95% RH in the laboratory. The results indicated that the crude protein content of millet was raised from 10.96-17.33%, while the crude lipid was lowered fro 3.12-2.58%. The ash content value was greatly increased from 1.36-7.94%. Five percent changes in minerals (calcium, magnesium and phosphorus) content values were also observed. Phytic acid content value of 0.4 mg 100g 1 reduced significantly to minimal 0.015 mg 100g 1. ...
Dehydrated blends of dairy-cereal combine the functional and nutritional properties of two major food groups. Fortified blended food base (FBFB) was prepared by blending fermented milk with parboiled wheat, co-fermenting the blend at 35 °C, shelf-drying and milling. Increasing co-fermentation time from 0 to 72 h resulted in powder with lower lactose, phytic acid and pH, and higher contents of lactic acid and galactose. Simultaneously, the pasting viscosity of the reconstituted base (16.7%, w/w, total solids) and its yield stress (σ0), consistency index (K) and viscosity on shearing decreased significantly. The changes in some characteristics (pH, phytic acid, η120) were essentially complete after 24 h co-fermentation while others (lactose, galactose and lactic acid, pasting viscosities, flowability) proceeded more gradually over 72 h. The reduction in phytic acid varied from 40 to 58% depending on the pH of the fermented milk prior to blending with the parboiled cereal. The reduction in ...
The same study that found that coconut wasnt as high in phytates as other nuts, also found that walnuts, peanuts, almonds and hazelnuts decreased the absorption rate of iron even more than bread meals! If you have any iron issues, you may want to consider not consuming many nuts. Coconut did not reduce iron absorption significantly, which I would assume was because it was so much lower in phytates. (1). Reducing Phytic Content in Nuts and Seeds. The advice Ramiel offered (with the note that there is very little research to know for sure how to reduce phytic acid levels in nuts and seeds) was to soak nuts and seeds for 18 hour, and then dehydrate at very low temperatures and then roast or cook the nuts. He felt this would likely reduce a large portion of the phytic acid, and even soaking 7 hours was likely to reduce phytic acid levels.. I would add that if you were to try it, you will probably want to drain and rinse the nuts half way through the soaking period as even soaking nuts for 12 hours ...
Background: Supplementation of myo-inositol has proved effective in different pathological conditions associated with insulin-resistance, including polycystic ovary syndrome, diabetes, gestational diabetes, and metabolic syndrome. At the same time, dietary habits in developed countries tend to reduce inositol intake, due to reduced consumption of whole grain foods, legumes, and nuts, rich in phytic acid, the main source of inositol. Aim: The review aims at providing a collection of foods with high phytic acid content to be used for diets that can make available as much inositol as is obtained from nutritional supplements commonly present in the market. Methods: An extensive review concerning the phytic acid content of foods was obtained from literature; furthermore, we designed an exemplifying phytic acid rich diet in by means of a specific nutritional software. Results: Foods with high phytic acid content are: cereals (0.04-3.3% on the dry matter), legumes (0.2-2.4%), oil seeds (0.4-5.7%), and nuts

Enhancement of micronutrient bioavailability is crucial to address the malnutrition in the developing countries. Various approaches employed to address the micronutrient bioavailability are showing promising signs, especially in cereal crops. Phytic acid (PA) is considered as a major antinutrient due to its ability to chelate important micronutrients and thereby restricting their bioavailability. Therefore, manipulating PA biosynthesis pathway has largely been explored to overcome the pleiotropic effect in different crop species. Recently, we reported that functional wheat inositol pentakisphosphate kinase (TaIPK1) is involved in PA biosynthesis, however, the functional roles of the IPK1 gene in wheat remains elusive. In this study, RNAi-mediated gene silencing was performed for IPK1 transcripts in hexaploid wheat. Four non-segregating RNAi lines of wheat were selected for detailed study (S3-D-6-1; S6-K-3-3; S6-K-6-10 and S16-D-9-5). Homozygous transgenic RNAi lines at T4 seeds with a decreased

Journal of Theoretical and Applied Genetics. 117(8):1291-301. Interpretive Summary: In order to identify rice plants showing reduce levels of seed phytic acid, we screened seeds from a population of plants that were chemically treated to cause gene mutations. Seeds were tested for increase inorganic phosphorus. Two different lines, designated N15-186 and N15-375, were identified and chemical analysis of seed extracts revealed that both had increased inorganic phosphorus and reduced phytic acid. N15-186 also had a 9-fold increase in myo-inositol and appeared to have reduced amounts of inositol monophosphate, both of which are compounds from which phytic acid is made. Genetic analysis of N15-186 revealed that the reduction in phytic acid was due to a mutation in a single gene. Further analysis using genetic ...
Phytic acid is the storage form of phosphorus found in many plants, especially in the bran or hull of grains and in nuts and seeds. Although herbivores like cows and sheep can digest phytic acid, humans cant. This is bad news because phytic acid binds to minerals (especially iron and zinc) in food and prevents us from absorbing them. Studies suggest that we absorb approximately 20 percent more zinc and 60 percent more magnesium from our food when phytic acid is absent. Its important to note that phytic acid does not leach minerals that are already stored in the body; it only inhibits the absorption of minerals from food in which phytic acid is present ...
The equilibrium constant (Kequ) for the reaction of 5,5′-dithiobis(2-nitrobenzoate) - DTNB - with the CysF9 [93]β sulphydryl group of the haemoglobins of the sheep decreases by about two orders of magnitude between pH≈5.6 and 9.2: from a mean of 7.2±1 to a mean of 0.044±0.01. Calculations from the pH dependence of Kequ show that in the r⇌t tertiary conformational transition of haemoglobin the t isomer population is 50.7 and 61.8% for the major and minor haemoglobins, respectively. In the presence of inositol hexakisphosphate (inositol-P6), Kequ increases for both haemoglobins by about an order of magnitude through most of the pH range. The t isomer population also increases to 82.1 and 79.6% for the major and minor haemoglobins, respectively. These results indicate that inositol-P6 increases the affinity of the sulphydryl for DTNB by increasing the population of the t isomer. It is highly probable that a minimum fourstate model that includes the r⇌t transition is required for a full ...

Legumes are a popular option for fitness enthusiasts to increase their protein, fiber, and iron consumption. For vegetarian fitness enthusiasts, legumes are a crucial element of their diet as theyre often paired with rice to create a complete protein source. Before your consume boatloads of legumes during your next meal, lets discuss their phytates and phytic acid content.. Phytic acid has antioxidant properties but also binds to vital minerals. Phytic acid inhibits iron absorption of both native-iron and fortified-iron foods, which can cause iron deficiencies over time if large amounts of legumes are consumed. [4] Although study in question failed to provide a formula on what constitutes a large amount of legumes, one can generally classify one can of legumes per day for 6-12 months to be a large amount.. Minerals whose absorption are hindered by the presence of phytates, in order of most to decreasing impact, are zinc, calcium, iron, copper, and magnesium. [5] It is worth reiterating ...

Nature has set it up so that the nut, grain and seed may survive until proper growing conditions are present. Natures defense mechanism includes nutritional inhibitors and toxic substances that can be removed naturally when there is enough precipitation to sustain a new plant after the nut, grain or seed germinates. When it rains the nut, grain or seed gets wet and can then germinate to produce a plant. So we are mimicking nature when we soak our nuts, grains and seeds.. Nutritional inhibitors and toxic substances found in nuts grains and seed can be minimized or eliminated by soaking. These inhibitors and toxic substances are enzyme inhibitors, phytates (phytic acid), polyphenols (tannins), and goitrogens.. Read more. ...
Phosphorus is one of the major constituents of which are involved in metabolic processes, nucleic acid and cell membranes biosynthesis as well as in the regulation of a large number of enzymes. Phytate (myo-inositol hexakisphosphate 3-phosphorilase) is the main storage form of phosphorus in various crops (cereals, legumes, and oilseed crops) and its accumulation in natural ecosystems could reduce the availability of various metal ions such as Fe, Zn, Mg or Ca, and could cause environmental pollution effects. Phytases are enzymes that catalyze the hydrolytic phosphate cleavage of phytic acid to lour inositol phosphate esters and inorganic phosphate. In the case of monogastric animals which do not have microbial phytases in their digestive system, the formation of insoluble metal cation-phytate complexes at physiological pH values is regarded as the major reason for poor mineral availability, because these complexes are essentially nonabsorbable from the gastrointestinal tract. However, phosphorus ...

Abstract. Four purified phytases isolated from Aspergillus niger and Escherichia coli were characterized biochemically and in terms of their adsorption to soils belonging to the Mollisol order. Three different organic P substrates were used to measure enzyme activity in a wide range of pH (2.3 to 9) and temperatures (−10° to 70 °C): p-nitrophenyl-phosphate, glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate and phytic acid. Phytases from A. niger showed a higher capacity to release P (36 to 50 % of P contained in the substrates, 44 to 62 μg P), than phytases from E. coli (24 to 36 %, 20 to 44 μg P). The amount of P released from organic P substrates by A. niger phytases followed the following range: p-nitrophenyl-phosphate > glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate > phytic acid whereas in E. coli phytases the order was p-nitrophenyl-phosphate/glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate > phytic acid. All phytases were active throughout the pH and temperature ranges for optimum crop production. The proportion of phytases found in the solid ...
First, phytates. Phytates, or phytic acids, are substances found in whole grains. They bind to minerals such as magnesium, iron, manganese, and calcium, thus, blocking their absorption. Phytates exist in nature primarily to ward off pests, including humans. There is no scientifically sound reason to eat them, and since most of us dont get enough quality nutrition-especially minerals-we have even more reason to steer clear. While many foods contain them, even nuts and seeds, we can remove most of them by simply not eating the skins which is where the phytates are concentrated. Removal of the skins from nuts and seeds is done easily enough and without processing--the same cant be said for grains because the outer hull (bran) that contains the worst of these phytates. So, if you really have to break down and eat a grain, processed grains and not whole grains, are the lesser of two evils ...
Seven newly bred and three established varieties of mung bean were analysed for proximate composition, minerals, anti-nutrients and in vitro mineral accessibility. They contained 18-23 g protein, 4.0-5.6 g crude fibre and 2.5-4.1 g ash per 100 g dry sample. Iron, zinc, calcium, sodium and potassium ranged from 3.4 to 4.6, 1.2 to 2.3, 79 to 115, 8.1 to 13.5 and 362 to 415 mg/100 g dry weight, respectively. Phytic acid and polyphenols averaged 769 and 325 mg/100 g dry weight, respectively. Varieties differed significantly in terms of nutrient and anti-nutrient contents. Phytic acid and polyphenols were negatively correlated with in vitro mineral accessibility and nutrient digestibility. Protein and starch digestibility ranged from 53 to 67 g/100 g dry weight and 20 to 29 mg maltose released/g dry weight, respectively. Average molar ratios of phytic acid to iron and zinc were 16.8 and 52.7, respectively. Differences in in vitro iron and zinc accessibility could not be explained by phytic acid to ...
The excessive consumption of foods rich in phytic acid. -Your diet lacks fat soluble vitamins A, E, D, and K.. How to reverse tooth decay and heal cavities naturally. Avoid sugar. Oral bacteria prevent the natural flow of flow of dental fluids and it is known to feed on sugar which is extremely acidic and can demineralize the structural makeup of the teeth. This in turn leads to tooth decay. So, instead of using the harmful sugar, you can try Stevia and raw honey. But, make sure to use them in moderation.. Avoid phytic acid. Phylate is an enzyme inhibitor and a mineral blocker that can lead to various health issues. It can be found in beans, nuts, seeds, and grains. About 80% of phosphorus is totally un-absorbable since it is bound to the phytic acid in the grains and beans in the diet that we have today. These molecules bind minerals such as zinc, iron, magnesium, and calcium, that are essential for optimal oral health. By consuming foods high in phytic acid, you reduce the absorption of zinc ...
I would love to camp out a little more in the history of fermenting grains and legumes, but since I have a lot of information to get through, I thought today I should start addressing the topic of phytic acid in grains and legumes. This is what the majority of scientific studies Ive read have been addressing. I havent found studies to answer all of my questions yet, but there are certainly a glut of studies to read!. Before I start discussing some of the following information, I wanted to make a few points about the research.. 1) There are many studies, and I certainly havent read them all. Ive probably read summaries of 50 +, but there are a lot more. There are some studies (like always) whose findings contradict another study. For this reason, Ive found it helpful to read a wide variety of studies to find out what the majority of the studies found.. 2) As Ive read different articles on this topic, both the excellent recent one in the Wise Traditions journal and other bloggers summaries, ...

Hi, Grace!. That is awesome!. You are right, Fosamax is very bad. Statins deplete the body of CoQ10 which is really hard on the heart.. For strong bones, some of the best things you can do are:. Drink raw milk and eat raw cheese (you can get these at the farmers market - Organic Pastures and Winchester Cheese). Eat plenty of butter and cream from grass-fed animals - great for vitamin K which you need to help assimilate the D & calcium (KerryGold butter from Trader Joes is grass-fed - and I buy the Organic Pastures cream). Eat homemade chicken stock (bone broth is full of calcium). Avoid phytates/phytic acid - it blocks mineral absorption. Soak your oatmeal overnight and avoid bread or pasta. Im going to post tomorrow about the Bezian Bakery at the Hollywood & Santa Monica farmers market - his bread is naturally fermented sourdough and so it is lower in phytates. Maybe one day we can convince him to make pasta… :-) I use rice pasta now - it is lower in phytates.. Phytic acid is found ...

The levels of InsP6 that we have measured in mammalian tissues are of a similar order to those deduced from equilibrium labelling of cultured cells with [3H]inositol (e.g. [37], and see [6] for discussion) and we can conclude that mammalian cells contain tens of μM InsP6. If anything, these may be underestimates compromised by a potential non-linearity of the assay when performed on tissue extracts. Moreover, these calculations assume a uniform cytosolic localization, but obviously local concentrations may be higher. This may be most relevant in the context of well defined nuclear functions for this inositol phosphate and its more highly phosphorylated derivatives [11,41-43]. Slime moulds, which synthesize very high levels of InsP6 very quickly [8], remain an enigma only deepened by our results.. Crucially, we have shown, as far as we know, for the first time, that HeLa cells in culture (and by implication, all mammalian cell lines in perpetuity) synthesize all their own InsP6. This depends, of ...
When applied extracellularly, myo-inositol hexakisphosphate (InsP6 ) and myo-inositol pentakisphosphate (InsP5 ) can inhibit the growth and proliferation of tumour cells. There is debate about whether these effects result from interactions of InsP6 and InsP5 with intracellular or extracellular targets. We synthesised FAM-InsP5 , a fluorescent conjugate of InsP5 that allows direct visualisation of its interaction with cells. FAM-InsP5 was internalised by H1229 tumour cells, a finding that supports earlier reports that externally applied inositol phosphates can-perhaps surprisingly-enter into cells. Close examination of the process of FAM-InsP5 uptake suggests a mechanism of non-receptor-mediated endocytosis, which is blocked at 4 °C and probably involves interaction of the ligand with the glycocalyx. However, our results are difficult to reconcile with antiproliferative mechanisms that require direct interactions of externally applied InsP5 or InsP6 with cytosolic proteins, because internalised FAM
Since a couple of years I have stopped eating unfermented grains, have switched to sourdough bread, fermented brown rice, pre-soaked beans etc. I was influenced to do so in the first place by some web sites like this one and that of the Weston Price Foundation, along with some books written by indi-viduals belonging to the same school of thought. The principal benefit of fermenting grains and legumes is said to be the elimination (breaking down) of phytic acid, present in all grains (talking about grains I mean also legumes and other seeds), a potent inhibitor of mineral absorption. Recently I stumbled upon a scientific article that puts the phytic acid issue in a slightly different light. Phytic acid consists mostly of phosphorus, which on fermentation gets released from the molecule and thus becomes bio-available phosphorus. Now, what I ignored is that phosphorus is one of those elements that westerners consume in excess (along with sodium and possibly some others). It has been known for a ...

The subject products consist of two enzyme preparations, each containing a genetically modified form of the enzyme, 6-phytase, which is produced in yeast using recombinant DNA techniques. 6-phytase is found in both plants and animals, and hydrolyses excess dietary phytic acid. One of the preparations is composed of 0.5% pure enzyme, 12.7% sodium chloride and 4.5 % sorbitol, with the remaining ingredients consisting of water, small amounts of citric acid, and fermentation-derived products. The other preparation is composed of 0.5% pure enzyme in water, with food-grade stabilizers and small amounts of citric acid and fermentation-derived products. You indicate that the subject products will be imported for use as additives in poultry and swine feeds to increase the uptake of phytate-bound phosphorus already present in the feeds, thereby decreasing the need for supplementing the animals diets with phosphorus. Both products will be imported in bulk form ...

Inositol pyrophosphates, such as diphosphoinositol pentakisphosphate (IP(7)), are water-soluble inositol phosphates that contain high energy diphosphate moieties on the inositol ring. Inositol hexakisphosphate kinase 1 (IP6K1) participates in inositol pyrophosphate synthesis, converting inositol hexakisphosphate (IP(6)) to IP(7). In the present study, we show that mouse embryonic fibroblasts (MEFs) lacking IP6K1 exhibit impaired DNA damage repair via homologous recombination (HR). IP6K1 knock-out MEFs show decreased viability and reduced recovery after induction of DNA damage by the replication stress inducer, hydroxyurea, or the radiomimetic antibiotic, neocarzinostatin. Cells lacking IP6K1 arrest after genotoxic stress, and markers associated with DNA repair are recruited to DNA damage sites, indicating that HR repair is initiated in these cells. However, repair does not proceed to completion because these markers persist as nuclear foci long after drug removal. A fraction of IP6K1-deficient MEFs
TY - JOUR. T1 - Inositol hexakisphosphate kinase-2, a physiologic mediator of cell death. AU - Nagata, Eiichiro. AU - Luo, Hongbo R.. AU - Saiardi, Adolfo. AU - Bae, Byoung Il. AU - Suzuki, Norihiro. AU - Snyder, Solomon H.. PY - 2005/1/14. Y1 - 2005/1/14. N2 - Diphosphoinositol pentakisphosphate (InsP7) and bis-diphosphoinositol tetrakisphosphate contain pyrophosphate bonds. InsP7 is formed from inositol hexakisphosphate (InsP6) by a family of three inositol hexakisphosphate kinases (InsP6K). In this study we establish one of the InsP6Ks, InsP6K2, as a physiologic mediator of cell death. Overexpression of wild-type InsP6K2 augments the cytotosic actions of multiple cell stressors in diverse cell lines, whereas transfection with a dominant negative InsP6K2 decreases cell death. During cell death, InsP6 kinase activity is enhanced, and intracellular InsP7 level is augmented. Deletion of InsP6K2 but not the other forms of InsP6K diminishes cell death, suggesting that InsP6K2 is the major InsP6 ...
Bifunctional inositol kinase that acts in concert with the IP6K kinases to synthesize the diphosphate group-containing inositol pyrophosphates diphosphoinositol pentakisphosphate, PP-InsP5, and bis-diphosphoinositol tetrakisphosphate, (PP)2-InsP4 (PubMed:17412958). Phosphorylates inositol hexakisphosphate (InsP6) at positions 1 or 3 to produce PP-InsP5 which is in turn phosphorylated by IP6Ks to produce (PP)2-InsP4. Alternatively, phosphorylates at position 1 or 3 PP-InsP5, produced by IP6Ks from InsP6, to produce (PP)2-InsP4 (By similarity). Required for maintaining cellular integrity, normal growth and interactions with the ARP complex (PubMed:10388810). Acts as a regulator of the PHO80-PHO85 cyclin/cyclin-dependent kinase (CDK) complex, thereby regulating signaling of phosphate availability (PubMed:17412959). Required for the function of the cortical actin cytoskeleton, possibly by participating in correct F-actin localization and ensuring polarized growth (PubMed:10388810). Regulates polarized

Lectins, phytic acid and condensed tannins exert major antinutritional effects in common bean when grains are consumed as a staple food. In addition, phaseolin, i.e., the major storage protein of the bean seed, is marginally digested when introduced in the raw form. Our breeding target was to adjust the nutrient/antinutrient balance of the bean seed for obtaining a plant food with improved nutritional value for human consumption. In this study, the seeds of twelve phytohaemagglutinin-E-free bean lines carrying the mutations low phytic acid, phytohaemagglutinin-L-free, α-Amylase inhibitors-free, phaseolin-free, and reduced amount of condensed tannins, introgressed and differently combined in seven genetic groups, were analyzed for their nutrient composition. Inedited characteristics, such as a strong positive correlation (+0.839 **) between the genetic combination “Absence of phaseolin + Presence of the α-Amylase Inhibitors” and the amount of “accumulated iron and zinc&rdquo
A potential extracellular target for inositol phosphates and analogues with anticancer properties is identified. Proteins from detergent-solubilised HeLa cell lysates bound to a novel affinity column of myo-inositol 1,3,4,5,6-pentakisphosphate (InsP5) coupled to Affigel-10. One high-affinity ligand was fibrinogen Bβ. Inositol phosphates and analogues were able to elute purified fibrinogen from this matrix. InsP5 and the inositol phosphate mimic biphenyl 2,3,4,5,6-pentakisphosphate (BiPhP5) bind fibrinogen in vitro, and block the effects of fibrinogen in A549 cell-based assays of proliferation and migration. They are also able to prevent the fibrinogen-mediated activation of phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase. These effects of fibrinogen appear to be mediated through the intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1), as cells not expressing ICAM-1 fail to respond. In contrast, myo-inositol hexakisphosphate and the epimeric scyllo-inositol 1,2,3,4,5-pentakisphosphate were without effect. These findings are
Parents choose soy formula because they believe that it is less allergenic than cows milk even though soybeans themselves are a major allergen, but highly processed unfermented products loaded with phytates, enzyme inhibitors, rancid fatty acids and altered protein most certainly are not easy to digest.. The claim is that soy is an acceptable substitute for milk in the feeding of babies and young children. The main ingredient of soy-based infant formula is soy protein isolate, so along with the growth-depressing trypsin inhibitors, these formulas have a high phytate content. The use of soy formula has caused zinc deficiency in infants that is important to the development of the nervous system. Aluminum content of soy formula is ten times greater than that of milk-based formula and has a toxic effect on the kidneys of infants.. Soy formulas lack cholesterol, which is essential for the development of the brain and the nervous system. Mothers milk has a special enzyme that helps the baby absorb ...
Methods used to quantify inositol phosphates in seeds lack the sensitivity and specificity necessary to accurately detect the lower concentrations of these compounds contained in the leaves of many plants. In order to measure inositol hexakisphosphate (InsP6) and inositol pentakisphosphate (InsP5) levels in leaves of different plants, a method was developed to concentrate and pre-purify these compounds prior to analysis. Inositol phosphates were extracted from leaves with diluted HCl and concentrated on small anion exchange columns. Reversed-phase solid phase extraction cartridges were used to remove compounds that give peaks that sometimes interfere during HPLC. The method permitted the determination of InsP6 and InsP5 concentrations in leaves as low as 10 µM and 2 µM, respectively. Most plants analyzed contained a high ratio of InsP6 to InsP5. In contrast, certain members of the Malvaceae family, such as cotton (Gossypium) and some hibiscus (Hibiscus) species, had a preponderance of InsP5. ...
Why should we soak our seeds and nuts before we eat them? You may have noticed that there are an increasing number of articles on soaking and available health foods that have been sprouted or activated. So what does this mean and why should you also be doing this?. Without getting too sciency you can think of it like this: until the seed/nut is ready to be planted it protects itself with a mechanism that produces nutritional inhibitors that are removed naturally when soaked. In nature this would occur when the seed/nut is watered or rained on which will then encourage its germination and growth. So in a way we are copying natures natural processed by soaking the seeds, nuts and legumes first.. These enzyme inhibitors are called phytates (phytic acid), polyphenols and goitrogens and they basically inhibit the breakdown of food. So on a basic level, digestion when eating these foods will be challenging for the body.. All grains contain phytic acid in the outer layer or bran. Untreated phytic ...
During the soaking process, the phytic acids are removed. Phytic acids can be a problem because when they combine with nutrients in the intestinal tract they can prevent or block optimal absorption. Removing the phytic acids therefore frees up the vitamins and minerals in walnuts for more effective digestion.. Tannins are found in the skin of the walnut. When we soak the walnut, these tannins get rinsed away, removing any bitter flavor and allowing the buttery flavor of the walnut to take center stage.. The enzyme inhibitors are also removed during soaking. Enzyme inhibitors can mess with our natural digestive enzymes which normally break down the food we eat. Once these inhibitors are removed during soaking, the digestion of the walnut becomes much easier.. Another great benefit of soaking is the increased production of several beneficial enzymes, which then release many vitamins otherwise locked up in the walnut, such as vitamin B.. ...
Quinoa may be the best plant-based source of iron available. One cup of quinoa nearly meets a days requirement for iron, as does its alternative grain friends amaranth, teff, and perhaps even kaniwa. (See more on iron rich food, particularly iron in quinoa).. However both quinoa and amaranth (and all grains) contain a substance called phytic acid (phytates) that binds to iron and reduces your bodys ability to absorb the iron.. If you need to rely on quinoa for your iron intake, I encourage you to read more about soaking grains to improve your iron absorption (or read about grains and phytic acid). If that information interests you, note that there is an entire 40+ page paper you can purchase, packed with graphs from the food science literature and recipes you can use in your own kitchen.. If you eat meat, have sauteed clam over a bed of soaked and cooked quinoa. Drizzle olive oil over top and you will be in iron/olive oil heaven. Clam is the food highest in iron.. Quinoa is not the only iron ...
The inositol hexakisphosphate kinases (IP6Ks) are the principal enzymes that generate inositol pyrophosphates. with a decreased amount of synapses. IP6T3 interacts with the cytoskeletal necessary protein spectrin and adducin whose changed individuality in IP6T3 knock-out rodents may mediate phenotypic features of the mutant rodents. These results afford molecular/cytoskeletal systems by which the inositol polyphosphate program has an effect on human brain function. mutant rodents express disorders of electric motor coordination and learning. IP6T3 affects the individuality of the spectrin-adducin complicated noncatalytically, which can account for its influences upon cerebellar Purkinje motor and cells behavior.

Bacteria secreted enzyme mostly are cell associated and the only bacteria that produces extracellular phytases are of the genera Bacillus (Choi et al., 2001; Kerovou et al., 1998; Kim et al., 1998). Bacterial phytases are detected in many species like Bacillus, Pseudomonas, E.coli, Klebsiella, Lactobacillus species (Quan et al., 2001; Pandey et al., 2001; Kim et al., 1999, 1998; Griener et al.,1993; Shimuzu, 1992; Yoon et al.,1996). Bacterial phytases are generally produced by submerged fermentation at pH 7.0. Some bacterial phytases, especially those of the genera Bacillus and Enterobacter, exhibit pH optima in the range from 6.0 to 8.0 (Shimizu, 1992). Therefore, they would be more beneficial as feed additives for poultry as their pH optimum is close to the physiological pH of the poultry crop. The phytases of E. coli have been reported to be periplasmic enzymes (Greiner et al., 1993) and phytase activity in Selenomonas ruminantium, Bacillus spp. and Mitsuokella multiacidus was found to be ...

Type 2 diabetes (T2Ds) is an endocrine/metabolic disease categorised by a reduction in peripheral insulin sensitivity and an associated and progressive decrease in b-cell function. The resulting hyperglycaemia is directly related to the 2nd complications associated with this condition. The devastating complications of diabetes are primary macrovascular and microvascular in nature. Indeed, cardiovascular morbidity is 2-4 times higher in T2Ds than healthy controls. Decreased Akt activity is associated with insulin resistance in skeletal muscle with a novel inositol hexakisphosphate Kinase 1 (IP6K1) pathway recently implicated in Akt inhibition, reduced insulin stimulated glucose uptake and hyperglycaemia (Mackenzie; Diab Metabol 2014:7 55-64).. Recent emerging evidence suggests that upon insulin stimulation of the class I phosphatidylinositol-3-kinase (PI3K), a signal bifurcation occurs, with stream leading to Akt2 activation and GLUT-4 translocation. The second stream leads to the activation of ...

The proximate and antinutrient analyses of six diets based on processed sweet potato- crayfish- soyabean/ bambara groundnut mixtures were determined using Nutrend as standard. Values for two sources of commercial processed soya bean flours used as protein supplements for infants and children in Nigeria were also investigated. Tannin (as tannic acid equivalent)and phytic acid contents of the ingredients and diets were also determined. Ratios of feed ingredients were formulated to provide 352-391 Kcal/kg energy, 12.03 -17.72% proteins per 100g diet, and to reach and adequate level of NdpCal% of 6.54 -8.02. The proximate analysis of the diets showed that protein value ranged between 7.88 -17.72%, carbohydrate 60.90 - 69.53%, lipid 2.02 -6.49%, ash 1.70 - 5.20%, fibre 0.61 -6.59%, and moisture 7.10 -9 .15%. The anti-nutritional factors analysis showed that percent loss in tannin content of 15. 00% and 51.22% in soya beans and bambara groundnut respectively were achieved and percent apparent loss ...

Click here to view the video. Phytate breakdown products also anti-nutritive. Recent publications have shown that it is not just phytate that has anti-nutritive effects; the breakdown products of phytate - IP5, IP4 and IP3 - can also have an anti-nutritive effect in the animal. These lower phytate esters have been shown to correlate with poor digestion of protein; energy; and minerals, indicating that they have an anti-nutritive effect in the animal. The key point is that, with standard phytase dosing, we may be degrading one anti-nutrient and simply replacing it with another.. Despite this, confusion still exists in the market as to what superdosing is and how this should be defined. Many end-users have now adopted the practise of superdosing, which involves using higher phytase doses in feed to reduce the anti-nutritional effects of phytate (IP6) in pigs and poultry. This has proven to give additional animal performance benefits beyond standard phytase doses.. Ongoing research and customer ...

Seeds and nuts are delicious and easy snacks, and they provide numerous essential nutrients, fibre, and healthy fats. Yet, if you are a fan of roasted nuts, we suggest replacing them with raw, dried nuts, as roasting might cause some side-effects and make the nuts go rancid. Also, companies often use cheap oils.. Therefore, simply buy raw ones and roast them on your own, at home. However, you probably werent aware of the fact that you should activate seeds and nuts in order to enjoy all their benefits. The activation process involves soaking them for several hours or overnight.. Nuts and seeds are high in phytic Acid, which is the storage form of phosphorus in plants, and it binds with minerals such as calcium, iron, zinc, magnesium, and manganese in the digestive tract, and makes them unavailable.. The regular consumption of foods high in phytic acid raises the risk of developing mineral deficiencies and osteoporosis.. Hence, if you are a fan of nuts and eat handfuls daily, you should ...

Do you know that anemia is a problem that affects up to 25% of the worlds population and it is primarily caused by low iron intake from diet and or low iron absorption.. Iron is used for making red blood cells (hemoglobin synthesis) so it is a required element for a healthy body. Many of our foods are fortified with Iron and therefore supplementation is not needed. Additionally, it is recommended that you get your iron levels tested to ensure you are getting enough iron before supplementing with iron-rich foods or other supplements.. Foods that enhance iron absorption include vitamin-C-rich foods, and the addition of high-quality proteins in the meal. Foods that lower iron absorption include tannins (found in tea and coffee), calcium, milk and dairy products, phytates, and eggs.. If you wish to increase iron absorption for correct an anemia problem there are some simple dietary changes you can add:. ...
Legumes and cereals contain high amounts of macronutrients and micronutrients but also anti-nutritional factors. Major anti-nutritional factors, which are found in edible crops include saponins, tannins, phytic acid, gossypol, lectins, protease inhibitors, amylase inhibitor, and goitrogens. Anti-nutritional factors combine with nutrients and act as the major concern because of reduced nutrient bioavailability. Various other factors like trypsin inhibitors and phytates, which are present mainly in legumes and cereals, reduce the digestibility of proteins and mineral absorption. Anti-nutrients are one of the key factors, which reduce the bioavailability of various components of the cereals and legumes. These factors can cause micronutrient malnutrition and mineral deficiencies. There are various traditional methods and technologies, which can be used to reduce the levels of these anti-nutrient factors. Several processing techniques and methods such as fermentation, germination, debranning, autoclaving,

Inositol (or myo-inositol) is a B-vitamin-like molecule often used to help regulate blood sugar, manage polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), and alleviate the symptoms of mood disorders such as low mood or anxiousness. Inositol is essential to multiple brain signaling systems, as it helps improve the sensitivity of various receptors, therefore enhancing the delivery of messages from a variety of hormones and neurotransmitters (brain messenger-molecules). Essentially, this helps hormones such as insulin and neurotransmitters such as serotonin and dopamine work more effectively.. Research suggests that high doses of inositol can address the symptoms of behavioural and compulsive disorders, particularly those related to mood imbalances. Recent research also supports a role for lower doses of inositol in cellular defense and normal cell growth and differentiation, especially in combination with I-P-6 (inositol hexaphosphate or phytate).. Those suffering with poor regulation of blood sugar, polycystic ...
Much attention is paid to veganism, and researchers comb the practice day and night. The results of the study indicate that someone can get food. On the other hand, following a diet plan, both macro and micronutrients can be provided. The invention of protein recipes helps, while some research warns of childrens deficiencies, to bridge the gap by mixing food. The vegetarian diet, studies show that eight amino acids, which are essential for the production of amino acids, are necessary for someone. Protein is found in many different foods. On the other hand, its the food they bring.. The protein is denatured when exposed to auxiliary agents and temperatures. These include cysteine, lysine, arginine, histidine, methionine, and tryptophan. Acid is a dietary inhibitor that binds calcium and zinc in cereals and legumes. Mammals that lack the receptor and maybe a phosphorus compound are adversely affected by acidity. Phytic acid reduces fermentation, germination, and receptor therapy. Soaking beans ...

Carbohydrate intake was reduced by almost half. Bread and oatmeal were replaced by potatoes, milk, meat, fish, eggs, butter and vegetables. The diet is reminiscent of what Dr. Weston Price used to reverse tooth decay in his dental clinic in Cleveland, although Prices diet did include rolls made from freshly ground whole wheat. Price also identified the fat-soluble vitamin K2 MK-4 as another important factor in tooth decay reversal, which would have been abundant in Mellanbys studies due to the dairy. The Mellanbys and Price were contemporaries and had parallel and complementary findings. The Mellanbys did not understand the role of vitamin K2 in mineral metabolism, and Price did not seem to appreciate the role of phytic acid from unsoaked whole grains in preventing mineral absorption ...
