Energy depletion differently affects membrane transport and intracellular metabolism of riboflavin taken up by isolated rat enterocytes. (1/773)

Isolated rat enterocytes, both normal and those de-energized with rotenone, were used to study the energy dependence of membrane and intracellular intestinal riboflavin transport in vitro. Membrane and intracellular transport were investigated by using short (3 min) and long (20 min) incubation times, respectively. For both types of cells and incubation times, [3H]-riboflavin uptake presented a saturable component prevailing at physiologic intraluminal concentrations. At 3 min incubation, saturable [3H]-riboflavin transport was apparently an energy-independent process with high affinity and low capacity. Values of the saturable component and its apparent constants, Km and Jmax, did not differ in normal and de-energized enterocytes. At 20 min incubation, saturable [3H]-riboflavin transport was a strictly energy-dependent process in which values of the saturable component were significantly greater in normal than in de-energized enterocytes. Km values did not differ in the two types of cells and were unmodified over 3 min, whereas in normal enterocytes, Jmax at 20 min [6.25 +/- 0.2 pmol/(mg protein. 20 min)] was significantly greater than at 3 min [2.67 +/- 0.33 pmol/(mg protein. 3 min)] and compared with de-energized enterocytes at 20 min [2.54 +/- 0.16 pmol/(mg protein. 20 min)]. Both membrane and intracellular events were inhibited by unlabeled riboflavin and analogs, which are good substrates for flavokinase, thus demonstrating the paramount role of this enzyme in riboflavin intestinal transport.  (+info)

Physiological consequence of disruption of the VMA1 gene in the riboflavin overproducer Ashbya gossypii. (2/773)

The vacuolar ATPase subunit A structural gene VMA1 of the biotechnologically important riboflavin overproducer Ashbya gossypii was cloned and disrupted to prevent riboflavin retention in the vacuolar compartment and to redirect the riboflavin flux into the medium. Cloning was achieved by polymerase chain reaction using oligonucleotide primers derived form conserved sequences of the Vma1 proteins from yeast and filamentous fungi. The deduced polypeptide comprises 617 amino acids with a calculated molecular mass of 67.8 kDa. The deduced amino acid sequence is highly similar to that of the catalytic subunits of Saccharomyces cerevisiae (67 kDa), Candida tropicalis (67 kDa), and Neurospora crassa (67 kDa) with 89, 87, and 60% identity, respectively, and shows about 25% identity to the beta-subunit of the FoF1-ATPase of S. cerevisiae and Schizosaccharomyces pombe. In contrast to S. cerevisiae, however, where disruption of the VMA1 gene was conditionally lethal, and to N. crassa, where viable disruptants could not be isolated, disruption of the VMA1 gene in A. gossypii did not cause a lethal phenotype. Disruption of the AgVMA1 gene led to complete excretion of riboflavin into the medium instead of retention in the vacuolar compartment, as observed in the wild type.  (+info)

Reactive oxygen species-induced apoptosis and necrosis in bovine corneal endothelial cells. (3/773)

PURPOSE: The loss of corneal endothelial cells associated with aging and possibly other causes has been speculated to be related to exposure to reactive oxygen species (ROS). The current study was conducted to investigate, by use of photosensitizers, the underlying mechanisms involved in the death of bovine corneal endothelial cells (BCENs) caused by ROS. METHODS: BCEN cells in primary culture were treated with a photosensitizer (riboflavin or rose bengal) with light exposure. The patterns of cell damage and death were assessed using an acridine orange-ethidium bromide differential staining method, TdT-mediated dUTP nick-end labeling (TUNEL) assay, and transmission electron microscopy. The cytotoxicity was assayed by mitochondrial function using 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyl tetrazolium bromide (MTT) testing. Antioxidants, including catalase, L-histidine, salicylic acid, and superoxide dismutase, were used to determine the types of ROS involved. Activation of nuclear factor (NF)-kappaB was examined by fluorescent immunocytochemistry with anti-p65 antibody. RESULTS: Light-irradiated riboflavin or rose bengal resulted in a significant decrease in viability of BCEN cells. Chromosomal condensation and fragmentation were observed in apoptotic cells, and membrane lysis and damage of cell ultrastructures were observed in necrotic cells. Riboflavin induced apoptosis at 30 minutes and thereafter and induced necrosis after 2 hours. Rose bengal was shown to cause similar effects within half the time required for the effects of riboflavin. Catalase and salicylic acid were found to provide protection for BCENs from cytotoxic effects of riboflavin, and L-histidine was found to protect BCENs from cytotoxicity induced by rose bengal. Kinetic studies using immunocytochemistry showed that NF-kappaB was translocated into the nucleus within 15 minutes and 30 minutes after treatment with rose bengal and riboflavin, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: The cytotoxic effects of photo-irradiated riboflavin and rose bengal are shown to be mediated by two distinct but parallel pathways, one leading to apoptosis and the other to necrosis. Possible involvement of NF-kappaB in cell death is suggested. These findings provide potential leads for future investigation into the molecular mechanisms of loss of corneal endothelial cells related to aging, oxidative stress, and possibly other similar causes.  (+info)

Vitamin dificiencies and neural tube defects. (4/773)

Serum folate, red cell folate, white blood cell vitamin C, riboflavin saturation index, and serum vitamin A were determined during the first trimester of pregnancy in over 900 cases. For each of these there was a social classes I + II showed the highest levels which differed significantly from other classes, except for serum folate. In 6 mothers who gave birth to infants with neural tube defects, first trimester serum folate, red cell folate, white blood cell vitamin C, and riboflavin values were lower than in controls. In spite of small numbers the differences were significant for red cell folate (P less than 0-001) and white blood cell vitamin C (P less than 0-05). These findings are compatible with the hypothesis that nutritional deficiencies are significant in the causation of congenital defects of the neural tube in man.  (+info)

Anti-mitochondrial flavoprotein autoantibodies of patients with myocarditis and dilated cardiomyopathy (anti-M7): interaction with flavin-carrying proteins, effect of vitamin B2 and epitope mapping. (5/773)

Vitamin B2 and flavin cofactors are transported tightly bound to immunoglobulin in human serum. We reasoned that anti-mitochondrial flavoprotein autoantibodies (alpha Fp-AB) present in the serum of patients with myocarditis and cardiomyopathy of unknown aetiology may form immunoglobulin aggregates with these serum proteins. However, immunodiffusion and Western blot assays demonstrated that the flavin-carrying proteins were not recognized by alpha Fp-AB. Apparently the flavin moiety in the native protein conformation was inaccessible to alpha Fp-AB. This conclusion was supported by the absence of an immunoreaction between the riboflavin-binding protein from egg white and alpha FP-AB. Intravenous application of vitamin B2 to rabbits immunized with 6-hydroxy-D-nicotine oxidase, a bacterial protein carrying covalently attached FAD, did not neutralize alpha Fp-AB which had been raised in the serum of the animals. FAD-carrying peptides generated from 6-hydroxy-D-nicotine oxidase by trypsin and chymotrypsin treatment were not recognized by the alpha Fp-AB, but those generated by endopeptidase Lys were. This demonstrates that the epitope recognized by alpha Fp-AB comprises, besides the flavin moiety, protein secondary structure elements.  (+info)

Riboflavin and riboflavin-derived cofactors in adolescent girls with anorexia nervosa. (6/773)

BACKGROUND: Thyroid hormones, riboflavin, riboflavin cofactors, and organic acids were assessed in girls with anorexia nervosa. OBJECTIVE: The objective was to examine the effect of malnutrition and low thyroid hormone concentrations on erythrocyte and plasma riboflavin metabolism and their relation with urinary organic acid excretion. DESIGN: Seventeen adolescent girls with anorexia nervosa [body mass index (BMI; in kg/m2): 14.8 +/- 2.2] and 17 age-matched, healthy girls (control subjects; BMI: 20.5 +/- 2.2) took part in the feeding study. Erythrocyte and plasma riboflavin as well as riboflavin cofactors (flavin mononucleotide and flavin adenine dinucleotide) were assessed by HPLC, whereas urinary organic acids were assessed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. RESULTS: Anorectic patients who began a feeding program had higher erythrocyte riboflavin (3.5 +/- 2.2 compared with <0.1 nmol/mol hemoglobin; P < 0.001), lower plasma flavin adenine dinucleotide (57.8 +/- 18.5 compared with 78.5 +/- 54.3 nmol/L; P < 0.05), and higher urinary ethylmalonic acid (7.12 +/- 4.39 compared with 1.3 +/- 2.8 micromol/mmol creatinine; P < 0.001) and isovalerylglycine (7.65 +/- 4.78 compared with 3.8 +/- 0.9 micromol/mmol creatinine; P < 0.05) concentrations than did control subjects. Triiodothyronine concentrations were low and negatively correlated with plasma riboflavin concentrations (r = -0.69, P < 0.01). Not all patients showed improvements in these biochemical indexes after 30 d of refeeding. CONCLUSIONS: The low triiodothyronine concentrations observed in anorexia nervosa could alter the extent of riboflavin conversion into cofactors, thus leading to high erythrocyte riboflavin concentrations, low plasma flavin adenine dinucleotide concentrations, and high rates of ethylmalonic acid and isovalerylglycine excretion.  (+info)

The ribR gene encodes a monofunctional riboflavin kinase which is involved in regulation of the Bacillus subtilis riboflavin operon. (7/773)

A 3.5 kb EcoRI-BamHI fragment of Bacillus subtilis chromosomal DNA carrying the ribR gene, involved in regulation of the B. subtilis riboflavin operon, was cloned in the B. subtilis-Escherichia coli shuttle vector pCB20. DNA sequence analysis of this fragment revealed several ORFs, one of which encodes a polypeptide of 230 amino acids with up to 45% sequence identity with FAD synthetases from a number of micro-organisms, such as Corynebacterium ammoniagenes, E. coli and Pseudomonas fluorescens, and also to the ribC gene product of B. subtilis. The ribR gene was amplified by PCR, cloned and expressed in E. coli. Measurement of flavokinase activity in cell extracts demonstrated that ribR encodes a monofunctional flavokinase which converts riboflavin into FMN but not to FAD, and is specific for the reduced form of riboflavin.  (+info)

Function of coenzyme F420 in aerobic catabolism of 2,4, 6-trinitrophenol and 2,4-dinitrophenol by Nocardioides simplex FJ2-1A. (8/773)

2,4,6-Trinitrophenol (picric acid) and 2,4-dinitrophenol were readily biodegraded by the strain Nocardioides simplex FJ2-1A. Aerobic bacterial degradation of these pi-electron-deficient aromatic compounds is initiated by hydrogenation at the aromatic ring. A two-component enzyme system was identified which catalyzes hydride transfer to picric acid and 2,4-dinitrophenol. Enzymatic activity was dependent on NADPH and coenzyme F420. The latter could be replaced by an authentic preparation of coenzyme F420 from Methanobacterium thermoautotrophicum. One of the protein components functions as a NADPH-dependent F420 reductase. A second component is a hydride transferase which transfers hydride from reduced coenzyme F420 to the aromatic system of the nitrophenols. The N-terminal sequence of the F420 reductase showed high homology with an F420-dependent NADP reductase found in archaea. In contrast, no N-terminal similarity to any known protein was found for the hydride-transferring enzyme.  (+info)

Riboflavin, or vitamin B-2, is an essential dietary component required in small amounts for many functions including regenerating the vital antioxidant glutathione. Dietary riboflavin that is not being utilized in riboflavin-dependant enzymes exists as free riboflavin. When we consume riboflavin in excess of this requirement, there is a dramatic increase in blood, tissue, and urine levels of free riboflavin.Normally the body contains low levels of free riboflavin, but its easy to get abnormally high levels of riboflavin … simply because many of the supplements available in todays marketplace contain an excess amount of riboflavin. This is a particular concern because riboflavin has the ability to react with light, resulting in adverse cellular effects. The combination of riboflavin and light produces both toxic peroxides 1 2, and a unique riboflavin-tryptophan photo adduct that is known to damage the liver and cells.3This propensity for riboflavin to generate both damaging free radicals and ...
Toxicity. If healthy, your body will effciently eliminate excess riboflavin through your urine. This doesnt mean that it is harmless to take large doses of synthetic riboflavin, as your kidneys need to expend extra energy to filter out all unnecessary waste products, including synthetic vitamins.. If you consume regular doses of synthetic riboflavin, riboflavin metabolites can become oxidized in your eyes, leading to the formation of fatty deposits called lipofuscin, paving the way to age-related macular degeneration.. As with all other nutrients, I highly recommend that you completely avoid synthetic riboflavin and obtain your riboflavin from whole foods only.. Diagnostic Test for Riboflavin.

Abstract Riboflavin was found to be essential for the cultivation of axenic Entamoeba histolytica. This is the first demonstration of a flavin requirement by the organism. Panmede, the principal source of flavins in the axenic medium, was treated with activated carbon to remove flavins. Medium made with this flavin-deficient Panmede, and supplemented with ribonucleic acid failed to support the multiplication of amebae in serial subculture, but did so when riboflavin was added. The concentration of riboflavin required to achieve maximal growth was about 1.3 µg per ml medium. Studies on riboflavin uptake revealed that amebae lack a high-affinity transport system for this vitamin. The rate of riboflavin uptake was equivalent to the rate of pinocytotic uptake of fluid as previously determined.
Methodology: The controversial issues are addressed and resolved by analytical formulas including: the validation of Bunsen Roscoe law (BRL), the cutoff light intensity, the minimum corneal thickness, the demarcation line depth, the role of oxygen and riboflavin concentration. The overall CXL efficacy is governed by UV-A light intensity, dose, exposure time, mode of exposure (pulsed or CW), the riboflavin concentration, diffusion and drops pre-operation and interoperation administration, the concentration of oxygen in the stromal tissue (pre-op and inter-op), and environmental conditions. The length of the riboflavin presoaking time and viscosity of the riboflavin film also affect the crosslink depth. Analytic formulas are derived for the scaling laws for type-I and type-II efficacy, given by the square root of light intensity, and light dose, respectively. ...

SUMMARY: Debaryomyces subglobosus (British National Collection of Yeast Cultures, ncyc 459) excretes riboflavin at the end of the growth period in batch culture and the yield depends on the concentration of iron in the medium. Yields of riboflavin in excess of 200 μg./ml. were obtained in media of low iron content but production was completely inhibited at Fe concentrations greater than 200 μg./l. D-Arabitol was produced simultaneously, increased yields of it being obtained at high iron concentration, but riboflavin production was then decreased. Procedures are described for the recovery of riboflavin and D-arabitol from the culture fluid.
Riboflavin (vitamin B2) works with the other B vitamins. It is important for body growth and red blood cell production and helps in releasing energy from carbohydrates. Riboflavin also facilitates the use of oxygen by the tissues of the skin, nails, and hair; eliminates dandruff; and helps the absorption of iron and vitamin B 6 (pyridoxine). Consumption of adequate amounts of riboflavin is important during pregnancy, because a lack of this vitamin can damage a developing fetus even if a woman shows no signs of deficiency. Riboflavin is needed for the metabolism of the amino acid tryptophan , which is converted into niacin in the body. Carpal tunnel syndrome may benefit from a treatment program that includes riboflavin and vitamin B 6.. ...

In hyperthyroid chicks, oestrogen-induced plasma accumulation of riboflavin-binding protein was diminished, whereas the reverse situation prevailed in hypothyroid birds. Under hyperthyroid conditions, higher concentrations of oestrogen were required to elicit a response comparable with that obtained in normal birds treated with lower concentrations of the hormone. Elevated hepatic cytochrome P-450 concentrations and decreased half-life of the induced protein in hyperthyroid animals suggest that higher catabolic rates of the inducer and induced protein are contributory factors to the diminished response. ...

Riboflavin, also known as Vitamin B2, is an essential B vitamin. It is a component of the coenzymes FAD and FMN, which are intermediates in many redox reactions, including energy production and cellular respiration reactions. It is also important for normal eyesight and skin. It is readily absorbed in the small intestine, but is not stored in body, since it is water-soluble. Riboflavin can be found in foods such as green leafy vegetables, milk, yogurt, cheese, and whole grains. However, riboflavin-5-phosphate is more soluble than riboflavin and the form found in all living tissues and cells.. ...
Model averaging has attracted increasing attention in recent years for the analysis of high-dimensional data. By weighting several competing statistical models suitably, model averaging attempts to achieve stable and improved prediction. In this paper, we develop a two-stage model averaging procedure to enhance accuracy and stability in prediction for high-dimensional linear regression. First we employ a high-dimensional variable selection method such as LASSO to screen redundant predictors and construct a class of candidate models, then we apply the jackknife cross-validation to optimize model weights for averaging. In simulation studies, the proposed technique outperforms commonly used alternative methods under high-dimensional regression setting, in terms of minimizing the mean of the squared prediction error. We apply the proposed method to a riboflavin data, the result show that such method is quite efficient in forecasting the riboflavin production rate, when there are thousands of genes and only

The U.S. Institute of Medicine (IOM) updated Estimated Average Requirements (EARs) and Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDAs) for riboflavin in 1998. The current EARs for riboflavin for women and men ages 14 and up are 0.9 mg/day and 1.1 mg/day, respectively; the RDAs are 1.1 and 1.3 mg/day, respectively. RDAs are higher than EARs so as to identify amounts that will cover people with higher than average requirements. RDA for pregnancy is 1.4 mg/day. RDA for lactation is 1.6 mg/day. For infants up to 12 months the Adequate Intake (AI) is 0.3-0.4 mg/day. and for children ages 1-13 years the RDA increases with age from 0.5 to 0.9 mg/day. As for safety, the IOM sets Tolerable upper intake levels (ULs) for vitamins and minerals when evidence is sufficient. In the case of riboflavin there is no UL, as there is no human data for adverse effects from high doses. Collectively the EARs, RDAs, AIs and ULs are referred to as Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs).[10][17]. The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) ...
Due to the progressive increase in the incidence of obese and overweight individuals, cardiometabolic syndrome has become a worldwide pandemic in recent years. Given the immunomodulatory properties of riboflavin, the current study was performed to investigate the potency of riboflavin in reducing obesity-related inflammation, which is the main cause of insulin resistance, diabetes mellitus 2 or arteriosclerosis. We determined whether pretreatment with a low dose of riboflavin (10.4-1000 nM) affected the pro-inflammatory activity of adipocyte-macrophage co-culture (3T3 L1-RAW 264.7) following lipopolysaccharide stimulation (LPS; 100 ng/mL) which mimics obesity-related inflammation. The apoptosis of adipocytes and macrophages as well as tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α), interleukin 6 (IL-6), interleukin 1beta (IL-1β), monocyte chemotactic protein 1 (MCP-1), high-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1), transforming growth factor-beta 1 (TGFβ), interleukin 10 (IL-10), inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS),

Riboflavin serves as a precursor for flavocoenzymes (FMN and FAD) and is essential for all living organisms. The two committed enzymatic steps of riboflavin biosynthesis are performed in plants by bifunctional RIBA enzymes comprised of GTP cyclohydrolase II (GCHII) and 3,4-dihydroxy-2-butanone-4-phosphate synthase (DHBPS). Angiosperms share a small RIBA gene family consisting of three members. A reduction of AtRIBA1 expression in the Arabidopsis rfd1mutant and in RIBA1 antisense lines is not complemented by the simultaneously expressed isoforms AtRIBA2 and AtRIBA3. The intensity of the bleaching leaf phenotype of RIBA1 deficient plants correlates with the inactivation of AtRIBA1 expression, while no significant effects on the mRNA abundance of AtRIBA2 and AtRIBA3 were observed. We examined reasons why both isoforms fail to sufficiently compensate for a lack of RIBA1 expression. All three RIBA isoforms are shown to be translocated into chloroplasts as GFP fusion proteins. Interestingly, both AtRIBA2 and
The flavocoenzymes FMN and FAD are absolutely indispensable in all cellular organisms. Riboflavin is biosynthesized by plants and many microorganisms. Many other microorganisms and mammalians depend on the uptake of the vitamin from external sources. All organisms are able to convert the precursor, riboflavin, into the active flavin nucleotide cofactors. The phosphorylation of riboflavin to form FMN by the second substrat ATP is catalyzed by the enzyme flavokinase. A monofunctional eucaryotic flavokinase from Schizosaccharomyces pombe was expressed in a recombinant Escherichia coli strain. The enzyme was purified and the structure of the protein was determined by X-ray crystallography. Flavokinase is suggested to form a novel family of phosphoryl transferring enzymes. Crystal structure of Schizosaccharomyces pmbe flavokinase reveals a novel ATP and riboflavin binding fold. The crystal structure was determined in substrate free form and in complex with the products ADP and FMN. Results from 13C ...

Riboflavin (vitamin B2) is the precursor of the flavin cofactors, flavin mononucleotide (FMN), and flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD). Plants and many microorganisms, synthesized riboflavin but animals must obtain it from dietary sources (Power, 2003). The deaminase and reductase steps in riboflavin biosynthesis are catalyzed by the bifunctional enzyme RibD in Escherichia coli. Plants have two homologs of RibD: PyrD (At4g20960) and PyrR (At3g47390). The plant PyrD protein is known to be a degenerate deaminase-reductase in which the reductase domain has lost critical substrate binding residues and hence activity. The plant three-domain PyrR protein has lost the zinc-binding residues and is recently shown lacks deaminase activity. Although the missing zinc finger binding residues of reductase domain in PyrD, and changes in critical substrate binding residues in the reductase domain of PyrR are shown using sequence alignments but have not studied experimentally that the loss of function of deaminase and
The present review focuses on the B-vitamins, i.e. folate, vitamin B12, vitamin B6 and riboflavin, that are involved in homocysteine metabolism. Homocysteine is a S-containing amino acid and its plasma concentrations can be raised by various constitutive, genetic and lifestyle factors, by inadequate nutrient status and as a result of systemic disease and various drugs. Hyperhomocysteinaemia is a modest independent predictor of CVD and stroke, but causality and the precise pathophysiological mechanism(s) of homocysteine action remain unproven. The predominant nutritional cause of raised plasma homocysteine in most healthy populations is folate insufficiency. Vitamin B12 and, to a lesser extent, vitamin B6 are also effective at lowering plasma homocysteine, especially after homocysteine lowering by folic acid in those individuals presenting with raised plasma homocysteine. However, riboflavin supplementation appears to be effective at lowering plasma homocysteine only in those individuals homozygous for

Several laboratory and clinical studies22-26 have been done with the aim to demonstrate the equivalence between conventional and accelerated UV-A irradiation protocols. The hypothesis of equivalence has been made based on the Bunson-Roscoe law of reciprocity.27,28 On the other hand, this hypothesis has been shown not to be true in biological tissues.1 Accordingly, Schwarzschild29 proposed a modification of the reciprocity law, which later became known as Schwarzschilds law. In this study, we found significant differences in riboflavin consumption between tissues that have been irradiated with the conventional and accelerated UV-A protocol. The conventional irradiation of the stroma achieved on average 20% more consumption of riboflavin than the accelerated one. It should be the object of further investigation whether this difference may lead to a different amount of additional cross-linking bonds between stromal proteins and therefore to different biomechanical strengthening of the corneal ...

Purpose: Infectious keratitis is a potentially sight-threatening condition which may cause severe visual loss. Antimicrobial treatment does not always guarantee rapid and complete healing, since the development of resistance to antimicrobial agents and misdiagnosis of fungal keratitis contribute to an increased rate of refractory keratitis. Recently, the antimicrobial properties of CXL against common pathogens in vitro, and CXL has been successfully used in the treatment of refractory infectious keratitis with corneal melting. In the present report we provide evidence that fluorescein competes riboflavin in UV-A absorption during CXL.. Methods: We analyzed the UVA-absorption of riboflavin and fluorescein by spectrophotometry (Lightwave S2000, Biochrom WPA, Cambridge, UK). The following concentrations were tested: 0.1%, 0.01%, 0.001% for riboflavin and 10%, 1%, 0.1%, 0.01% for fluorescein. NRS1 strains Network on Antimicrobial Resistance in Staphylococcus aureus were used in all experiments. ...
Corneal collagen cross-linking with riboflavin (vitamin B2) and UV-A light is a surgical treatment for corneal ectasia such as keratoconus, PMD, and post-LASIK ectasia. It is used in an attempt to make the cornea stronger. According to a 2015 Cochrane review, there is insufficient evidence to determine if it is useful in keratoconus. In 2016, the US Food and Drug Administration approved riboflavin ophthalmic solution crosslinking based on three 12-month clinical trials. A 2015 Cochrane review that looked at all high quality evidence on corneal collagen cross-linking found that it was insufficient to determine if it is useful in keratoconus. Among those with keratoconus who worsen CXL may be used. In this group the most common side effects are haziness of the cornea, punctate keratitis, corneal striae, corneal epithelium defect, and eye pain. In those who use it after post-LASIK ectasia, the most common side effects are haziness of the cornea, corneal epithelium defect, corneal striae, dry eye, ...

Introduction: Lumichrome, a photodegradation product of riboflavin, is an endogenous compound in humans. The compound is more photostable and a more efficient photogenerator of singlet oxygen than riboflavin. It absorbs radiation in the UVA and blue light region, which can be an advantage in aPDT of superficial infections.. Aims and objectives: The aim of this study was to investigate the aPDT effect of various lumichrome pharmaceuticals formulations on bacteria in vitro.. Material & methods: Solutions of lumichrome (10-5 - 10-3M) were prepared in plain PBS, in PBS-cosolvents solutions or in formulations containing cyclodextrins or polyoxamers. Supersaturated solutions of lumichrome in PBS were prepared via the cosolvent and solvent evaporation method. The antibacterial effect of selected lumichrome preparations was studied in vitro against plaktonic Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. The light dose used was ≈ 13 J/cm² and the lamp emitted mainly in the range 340-440 nm.. Results & ...

1.3 mg/day. Therefore, if the PD patients had a normal absorptive capacity for vitamin B2, their large ingestion of red meat (up to 700 g/day), associated with milk, rice and beans, fruits and vegetables, should have provided a normal riboflavin status. In contrast, 31 consecutive PD patients had laboratory evidence for riboflavin deficiency (Table 2) suggesting that patients with sporadic PD belong to the subset of the general population (10-15%) (3) that may express a flavokinase with low affinity for vitamin B2, leading to a decreased absorption.. However, the digestion of red meat releases hemin, a highly diffusible toxin that, when not properly inactivated, increases intracellular iron concentrations and enhances hydroxyl radical production (Fenton reaction). Most of the absorbed hemin is destroyed by the enzyme heme oxygenase (HO) in the digestive tract and liver (26). Because HO is oxidized during the catabolization of hemin to biliverdin, the HO molecules must be reduced through the ...
Riboflavin deficiency is usually associated with a low intake of milk and animal proteins. Pasteurization of milk results in an appreciable loss of this vitamin. Ectodermal tissues such as skin, nervous system and eye are the most vulnerable to its lack. Clinically riboflavin deficiency is seen usually along with the deficiency of multiple factors such as in poorer population and in alcoholics. It is also seen in newborn infants subjected to phototherapy for hyperbilirubinemia. Breast fed infants are more liable to show deficiency because of lower riboflavin content of human milk. Its deficiency is also seen in patients on chronic peritoneal dialysis and hemodialysis. Following are the features seen with its deficiency.. ...

As co-enzymes, the B vitamins are essential components in most major metabolic reactions. They play an important role in energy production, including the metabolism of lipids, carbohydrates, and proteins. B vitamins are also important for blood cells, hormones, and nervous system function. As water-soluble substances, B vitamins are not generally stored in the body in any appreciable amounts. Thiamin and riboflavin are all essential coenzymes in energy production. Thiamin is converted quickly into thiamin pyrophosphate, which is required for glycolytic and Krebs cycle reactions. Thiamin also appears to be related to nerve impulse transmission. Riboflavin is a component of the coenzymes FAD and FMN, which are intermediates in many redox reactions, including energy production and cellular respiration reactions. Vitamin B-6 is a coenzyme in amino acid metabolism. It is necessary for the metabolism of homocysteine and the conversion of tryptophan into niacin. Vitamin B-6 dependent enzymes are also ...

Riboflavin synthase (RS-α) catalyzes the biosynthesis of riboflavin (vitamin B2) by dismutation of 6,7-dimethyl-8-(1-D-ribityl)lumazine (Lum) (EC 2.5.1.9). Riboflavin synthases of bacteria and fungi are structurally and evolutionary related to antenna proteins involved in bioluminescence of marine bacteria [1,2]. These proteins seem to have evolved from the duplication of a domain of about 100 residues, the lumazine-binding repeat. The 3D structure of RS-α, which is an asymmetric homotrimer, shows that both domains form a 6-stranded antiparallel β-barrel (see ,PDB:1PKV,) [3], while a C-terminal helix is involved in trimerization. The Lum-binding domain of RS-α forms two Greek-key folds with the topology BBHBBBHB, where most of the substrate binding sites are located in β-strands (B) 4 and 5 and in helix (H) 2 [3,4,5]. Some proteins known to contain a lumazine-binding repeat: ...

Corneal Collagen Crosslinking with Riboflavin (also known as C3R) is a procedure that has been shown to strengthen the weak corneal structure. The cornea is made up of many layers of collagen arranged in a very regular pattern with cross links for strength. C3R works by increasing collagen cross-linking thereby strengthening the cornea. Studies have shown the cornea is strengthened by over 300% following this procedure.. During the procedure, riboflavin eye drops are applied to the cornea. The surgeon then uses UV light to activate the riboflavin, inducing the strengthening cross-links in the cornea. This is a short procedure performed as a day-case and is offered if the keratoconus is progressive. The aim of treatment is to prevent any further deterioration. ...

Cross-linking is a medical procedure that combines the use of ultra-violet light and riboflavin eye drops. Corneal cross-linking (CXL) is an in-office eye procedure that strengthens the cornea if its been weakened by keratoconus, other corneal disease, or (rarely) a complication of LASIK surgery. Alternative and brand names for the procedure include corneal cross-linking, corneal…
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has granted a second orphan drug designation to Waltham ophthalmologic device and pharmaceutical developer Avedro Inc. for a treatment of corneal ectasia. The designation relates to VibeX, its riboflavin solution intended for use with UVA irradiation, the KXL system for Corneal Cross-linking, which the company said on its website helps strengthen the cornea following refractive surgery.. SOURCE ...
A significant increase in intra-operative corneal thickness was seen when CXL was performed using iso-osmolar riboflavin 0.1% dye in HPMC. Post-operative demarcation line was noted to be at an adequate depth signifying the efficacy and safety of the procedure. This overall signifies that CXL can be safely applied in cases of keratoconus with thin corneas when iso-osmolar riboflavin in 0.1% HPMC is used instead of hypo-osmolar riboflavin in dextran ...

Comparative map before and after CXL-plus (trans-PTK-PRK + accelerated CXL). SCVA improved from 20/50 to 20/25. Epi-off corneal crosslinking (CXL) is a proven treatment for corneal ectatic disease. It halts the ectatic process by strengthening the cornea by means of creating covalent bonds between collagen fibrils. In the last three years many efforts have been made by researchers and ophthalmic companies to improve the quality and the time of treatment through development of new riboflavin solutions and new irradiance protocols.. However, even though the main target of halting corneal ectasia is reached in most cases, few patients affected by moderate to severe keratoconus have a consistent visual acuity (VA) improvement. When performed on its own, the CXL procedure is not intended to improve vision, but rather to stabilise disease, and therefore the patient still remains to be rehabilitated visually, thereby affecting their quality of life. Many face the need to wear customised contact lenses ...
The chicken riboflavin carrier protein (RCP) is an estrogen induced egg yolk and white protein. Eggs from hens which have a splice mutation in RCP gene fail to hatch, indicating an absolute requirement of RCP for the transport of riboflavin to the oocyte. In order to understand the mechanism of regulation of this gene by estrogen, the chicken RCP gene including 1 kb of the 5′ flanking region has been isolated. Characterization of the gene structure shows that it contains six exons and five introns, including an intron in the 5′ untranslated region. Sequence analysis of the 5′ flanking region does not show the presence of any classical, palindromic estrogen response element (ERE). However, there are six half site ERE consensus elements. Four deletion constructs of the 5′ flanking region with varying number of ERE half sites were made in pGL3 basic vector upstream of the luciferase-coding region. Transient transfection of these RCP promoter deletion constructs into a chicken hepatoma cell ...

Clone REA654 recognizes the human variable β2 subunit of the α/β T cell receptor (TCR Vβ2). The TCR is a heterodimeric glycoprotein associated with the CD3 antigen. The α and β TCR chains are composed of constant and variable regions, each encoded by distinct gene segments. TCR Vβ2 is a variant of the TCR β chain. α/β T cells express a diverse α/β TCR repertoire that specifically co-recognizes self or foreign antigen bound to antigen-presenting molecules, which thereby leads to T cell-mediated immunity. For example, the TCR can directly bind to peptide fragments, riboflavin precursors, and lipid antigens that are presented by major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecules, MR1 and CD1, respectively. In each case, the antigen sits within the antigen-binding cleft, whereupon the TCR recognizes a composite surface formed by the antigen-presenting molecule and surface-exposed regions of the antigen itself. This co-recognition paradigm is a central tenet of α/β T cell-mediated immunity and

In 2000 the North American Dietary Reference Intake chapter on vitamin C updated the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) to 90 milligrams per day for adult men and 75 mg/day for adult women, and set a Tolerable upper intake level (UL) for adults of 2,000 mg/day.[3] The table shows RDAs for the United States and Canada for children, and for pregnant and lactating women.[3] For the European Union, the EFSA set higher recommendations for adults, and also for children: 20 mg/day for ages 1-3, 30 mg/day for ages 4-6, 45 mg/day for ages 7-10, 70 mg/day for ages 11-14, 100 mg/day for males ages 15-17, 90 mg/day for females ages 15-17. For pregnancy 100 mg/day; for lactation 155 mg/day.[62] India, on the other hand, has set recommendations much lower: 40 mg/day for ages 1 through adult, 60 mg/day for pregnancy, and 80 mg/day for lactation.[57] Clearly, there is not consensus among countries. Cigarette smokers and people exposed to secondhand smoke have lower plasma vitamin C levels than nonsmokers. The ...

7-Dehydrocholesterol is the precursor of cholecalciferol.[2] Within the epidermal layer of skin, 7-dehydrocholesterol undergoes an electrocyclic reaction as a result of UVB light at wavelengths between 290 and 315 nm, with peak synthesis occurring between 295 and 300 nm.[34] This results in the opening of the vitamin precursor B-ring through a conrotatory pathway making previtamin D3 (pre-cholecalciferol).[35] In a process which is independent of UV light, the pre-cholecalciferol then undergoes a [1,7] antarafacial sigmatropic rearrangement [36] and therein finally isomerizes to form vitamin D3. The active UVB wavelengths are present in sunlight, and sufficient amounts of cholecalciferol can be produced with moderate exposure of the skin, depending on the strength of the sun.[34] Time of day, season, and altitude affect the strength of the sun, and pollution, cloud cover or glass all reduce the amount of UVB exposure. Exposure of face, arms and legs, averaging 5-30 minutes twice per week, may be ...
... has been used as a vitamin C dietary supplement.[8] As a cosmetic ingredient, dehydroascorbic acid is used to enhance the appearance of the skin.[9] It may be used in a process for permanent waving of hair[10] and in a process for sunless tanning of skin.[11] In a cell culture growth medium, dehydroascorbic acid has been used to assure the uptake of vitamin C into cell types that do not contain ascorbic acid transporters.[12] As a pharmaceutical agent, some research has suggested that administration of dehydroascorbic acid may confer protection from neuronal injury following an ischemic stroke.[7] The literature contains many reports on the antiviral effects of vitamin C,[13] and one study suggests dehydroascorbic acid has stronger antiviral effects and a different mechanism of action than ascorbic acid.[14] Solutions in water containing ascorbic acid and copper ions and/or peroxide, resulting in rapid oxidation of ascorbic acid to dehydroascorbic acid, have been shown to ...
... (mecobalamin, MeCbl, or MeB12) is a cobalamin, a form of vitamin B12. It differs from cyanocobalamin in that the cyano at the cobalt is replaced with a methyl group.[1] Methylcobalamin features an octahedral cobalt(III) centre and can be obtained as bright red crystals.[2] From the perspective of coordination chemistry, methylcobalamin is notable as a rare example of a compound that contains metal-alkyl bonds. Nickel-methyl intermediates have been proposed for the final step of methanogenesis. Methylcobalamin is equivalent physiologically to vitamin B12,[citation needed] and can be used to prevent or treat pathology arising from a lack of vitamin B12 intake (vitamin B12 deficiency). Methylcobalamin is also used in the treatment of peripheral neuropathy, diabetic neuropathy, and as a preliminary treatment for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.[3] Methylcobalamin that is ingested is not used directly as a cofactor, but is first converted by MMACHC into cob(II)alamin. Cob(II)alamin is ...

Excessive doses can result in increased urine production, high blood pressure, kidney stones, kidney failure, weakness, and constipation.[4] If high doses are taken for a long period of time, tissue calcification may occur.[3] It is recommended that people on high doses have their blood calcium levels regularly checked.[2] Normal doses are safe in pregnancy.[5] It works by increasing the amount of calcium absorbed by the intestines and kidneys.[4] Food in which it is found include some mushrooms.[6].

American researchers Elmer McCollum and Marguerite Davis in 1914[12] discovered a substance in cod liver oil which later was called "vitamin A". British doctor Edward Mellanby noticed dogs that were fed cod liver oil did not develop rickets and concluded vitamin A, or a closely associated factor, could prevent the disease. In 1922, Elmer McCollum tested modified cod liver oil in which the vitamin A had been destroyed.[12] The modified oil cured the sick dogs, so McCollum concluded the factor in cod liver oil which cured rickets was distinct from vitamin A. He called it vitamin D because it was the fourth vitamin to be named.[188][189] It was not initially realized that, unlike other vitamins, vitamin D can be synthesised by humans through exposure to UV light. In 1925,[12] it was established that when 7-dehydrocholesterol is irradiated with light, a form of a fat-soluble vitamin is produced (now known as D3). Alfred Fabian Hess stated: "Light equals vitamin D."[190] Adolf Windaus, at the ...

Shortness in children and young adults nearly always results from below-average growth in childhood, while shortness in older adults usually results from loss of height due to kyphosis of the spine or collapsed vertebrae from osteoporosis. The most common causes of short stature in childhood are constitutional growth delay or familial short stature. From a medical perspective, severe shortness can be a variation of normal, resulting from the interplay of multiple familial genes. It can also be due to one or more of many abnormal conditions, such as chronic (prolonged) growth hormone or thyroid hormone deficiency, malnutrition, disease of a major organ system, mistreatment, treatment with certain drugs, chromosomal deletions. Human growth hormone (HGH) deficiency may occur at any time during infancy or childhood, with the most obvious sign being a noticeable slowing of growth. The deficiency may be genetic. Among children without growth hormone deficiency, short stature may be caused by Turner ...
