A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of VITAMIN B 12 in the diet, characterized by megaloblastic anemia. Since vitamin B 12 is not present in plants, humans have obtained their supply from animal products, from multivitamin supplements in the form of pills, and as additives to food preparations. A wide variety of neuropsychiatric abnormalities is also seen in vitamin B 12 deficiency and appears to be due to an undefined defect involving myelin synthesis. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p848)
VITAMIN B 6 refers to several PICOLINES (especially PYRIDOXINE; PYRIDOXAL; & PYRIDOXAMINE) that are efficiently converted by the body to PYRIDOXAL PHOSPHATE which is a coenzyme for synthesis of amino acids, neurotransmitters (serotonin, norepinephrine), sphingolipids, and aminolevulinic acid. During transamination of amino acids, pyridoxal phosphate is transiently converted into PYRIDOXAMINE phosphate. Although pyridoxine and Vitamin B 6 are still frequently used as synonyms, especially by medical researchers, this practice is erroneous and sometimes misleading (EE Snell; Ann NY Acad Sci, vol 585 pg 1, 1990). Most of vitamin B6 is eventually degraded to PYRIDOXIC ACID and excreted in the urine.
A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of THIAMINE in the diet, characterized by anorexia, irritability, and weight loss. Later, patients experience weakness, peripheral neuropathy, headache, and tachycardia. In addition to being caused by a poor diet, thiamine deficiency in the United States most commonly occurs as a result of alcoholism, since ethanol interferes with thiamine absorption. In countries relying on polished rice as a dietary staple, BERIBERI prevalence is very high. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1171)

Defective high-affinity thiamine transporter leads to cell death in thiamine-responsive megaloblastic anemia syndrome fibroblasts. (1/735)

We have investigated the cellular pathology of the syndrome called thiamine-responsive megaloblastic anemia (TRMA) with diabetes and deafness. Cultured diploid fibroblasts were grown in thiamine-free medium and dialyzed serum. Normal fibroblasts survived indefinitely without supplemental thiamine, whereas patient cells died in 5-14 days (mean 9.5 days), and heterozygous cells survived for more than 30 days. TRMA fibroblasts were rescued from death with 10-30 nM thiamine (in the range of normal plasma thiamine concentrations). Positive terminal deoxynucleotide transferase-mediated dUTP nick end-labeling (TUNEL) staining suggested that cell death was due to apoptosis. We assessed cellular uptake of [3H]thiamine at submicromolar concentrations. Normal fibroblasts exhibited saturable, high-affinity thiamine uptake (Km 400-550 nM; Vmax 11 pmol/min/10(6) cells) in addition to a low-affinity unsaturable component. Mutant cells lacked detectable high-affinity uptake. At 30 nM thiamine, the rate of uptake of thiamine by TRMA fibroblasts was 10-fold less than that of wild-type, and cells from obligate heterozygotes had an intermediate phenotype. Transfection of TRMA fibroblasts with the yeast thiamine transporter gene THI10 prevented cell death when cells were grown in the absence of supplemental thiamine. We therefore propose that the primary abnormality in TRMA is absence of a high-affinity thiamine transporter and that low intracellular thiamine concentrations in the mutant cells cause biochemical abnormalities that lead to apoptotic cell death.  (+info)

Cloning and characterization of the thiD/J gene of Escherichia coli encoding a thiamin-synthesizing bifunctional enzyme, hydroxymethylpyrimidine kinase/phosphomethylpyrimidine kinase. (2/735)

A 1.7 kb DNA fragment isolated from an E. coli genomic library was able to complement the thiamin requirement of strains carrying the thiM, thiJ and thiD mutations. The three genes encode hydroxyethylthiazole kinase, hydroxymethylpyrimidine (HMP) kinase and phosphomethylpyrimidine (HMP-p) kinase, respectively. Sequence analysis revealed that the 1.7 kb fragment contained two ORFs of 708 bp and 801 bp. The former ORF complemented the thiM mutation and the latter ORF both the thiJ and thiD mutations. The latter ORF was cloned into the expression vector pET3a, and the encoded protein was purified through three successive column chromatographies. The purified protein was able to convert HMP to its monophosphate and the monophosphate to its pyrophosphate. These results suggest that the two distinct enzyme activities, HMP kinase and HMP-P kinase, are indeed a bifunctional enzyme encoded by a single gene, designated thiDIJ.  (+info)

Efficient sequence analysis of the six gene products (7-74 kDa) from the Escherichia coli thiamin biosynthetic operon by tandem high-resolution mass spectrometry. (3/735)

The 10(5) resolving power and MS/MS capabilities of Fourier-transform mass spectrometry provide electrospray ionization mass spectra containing >100 molecular and fragment ion mass values of high accuracy. Applying these spectra to the detection and localization of errors and modifications in the DNA-derived sequences of proteins is illustrated with the thiCEFSGH thiamin biosynthesis operon from Escherichia coli. Direct fragmentation of the multiply-charged intact protein ions produces large fragment ions covering the entire sequence; further dissociation of these fragment ions provides information on their sequences. For ThiE (23 kDa), the entire sequence was verified in a single spectrum with an accurate (0.3 Da) molecular weight (Mr) value, with confirmation from MS/MS fragment masses. Those for ThiH (46 kDa) showed that the Mr value (1 Da error) represented the protein without the start Met residue. For ThiF (27 kDa), MS/MS localized a sequence discrepancy to a 34 residue peptide. The first 107 residues of ThiC (74 kDa) were shown to be correct, with C-terminal heterogeneity indicated. For ThiG (predicted Mr = 34 kDa), ESI/FTMS showed two components of 7,310.74 (ThiS) and 26,896.5 Da (ThiG); MS/MS uncovered three reading frame errors and a stop codon for the first protein. MS/MS ions are consistent with 68 fragments predicted by the corrected ThiS/ThiG DNA sequences.  (+info)

Overexpression of recombinant proteins with a C-terminal thiocarboxylate: implications for protein semisynthesis and thiamin biosynthesis. (4/735)

A facile and rapid method for the production of protein C-terminal thiocarboxylates on DNA-encoded polypeptides is described. This method, which relies on the mechanism of the cleavage reaction of intein-containing fusion proteins, can produce multi-milligram quantities of protein C-terminal thiocarboxylate quickly and inexpensively. The utility of this method for protein semisynthesis and implications for studies on the biosynthesis of thiamin are discussed.  (+info)

Dietary thiamin level influences levels of its diphosphate form and thiamin-dependent enzymic activities of rat liver. (5/735)

This study was prompted by our incomplete understanding of the mechanism responsible for the clinical benefits of pharmacological doses of thiamin in some patients with maple syrup urine disease (MSUD) and the question of whether thiamin diphosphate (TDP), a potent inhibitor of the activity of the protein kinase that phosphorylates and inactivates the isolated branched-chain alpha-ketoacid dehydrogenase (BCKDH) complex, affects the activity state of the complex. Rats were fed a chemically-defined diet containing graded levels of thiamin (0, 0.275, 0.55, 5.5, and 55 mg thiamin/kg diet). Maximal weight gain was attained over a 3-wk period only in rats fed diets with 5.5 and 55 mg thiamin/kg. Feeding rats the thiamin-free diet for just 2 d caused loss of nearly half of the TDP from liver mitochondria. Three more days caused over 70% loss, an additional 3 wk, over 90%. Starvation for 2 d had no effect, suggesting a mechanism for conservation of TDP in this nutritional state. Mitochondrial TDP was higher in rats fed pharmacological amounts of thiamin (55 mg thiamin/kg diet) than in rats fed adequate thiamin for maximal growth. Varying dietary thiamin had marked but opposite effects on the activities of alpha-ketoglutarate dehydrogenase (alpha-KGDH) and BCKDH. Thiamin deficiency decreased alpha-KGDH activity, increased BCKDH activity, and increased the proportion of BCKDH in the active, dephosphorylated, state. Excess dietary thiamin had the opposite effects. TDP appears to be more tightly associated with alpha-KGDH than BCKDH in thiamin-deficient rats, perhaps denoting retention of alpha-KGDH activity at the expense of BCKDH activity. Thus, thiamin deficiency and excess cause large changes in mitochondrial TDP levels that have a major influence on the activities of the keto acid dehydrogenase complexes.  (+info)

Thiamine repression and pyruvate decarboxylase autoregulation independently control the expression of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae PDC5 gene. (6/735)

The Saccharomyces cerevisiae gene PDC5 encodes the minor isoform of pyruvate decarboxylase (Pdc). In this work we show that expression of PDC5 but not that of PDC1, which encodes the major isoform, is repressed by thiamine. Hence, under thiamine limitation both PDC1 and PDC5 are expressed. PDC5 also becomes strongly expressed in a pdc1delta mutant. Two-dimensional gel electrophoresis of whole protein extracts shows that thiamine limitation stimulates the production of THI gene products and of Pdc5p. Deletion of PDC1 only stimulates production of Pdc5p. We conclude that the stimulation of PDC5 expression in a pdc1delta mutant is not due to a response to thiamine limitation.  (+info)

Rereplication phenomenon in fission yeast requires MCM proteins and other S phase genes. (7/735)

The fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe can be induced to perform multiple rounds of DNA replication without intervening mitoses by manipulating the activity of the cyclin-dependent kinase p34(cdc2). We have examined the role in this abnormal rereplication of a large panel of genes known to be involved in normal S phase. The genes analyzed can be grouped into four classes: (1) those that have no effect on rereplication, (2) others that delay DNA accumulation, (3) several that allow a gradual increase in DNA content but not in genome equivalents, and finally, (4) mutations that completely block rereplication. The rereplication induced by overexpression of the CDK inhibitor Rum1p or depletion of the Cdc13p cyclin is essentially the same and requires the activity of two minor B-type cyclins, cig1(+) and cig2(+). In particular, the level, composition, and localization of the MCM protein complex does not alter during rereplication. Thus rereplication in fission yeast mimics the DNA synthesis of normal S phase, and the inability to rereplicate provides an excellent assay for novel S-phase mutants.  (+info)

Characterization and hormonal modulation of immunoreactive thiamin carrier protein secreted by adult rat Leydig cells in vitro. (8/735)

Leydig cells isolated from adult rats and maintained under defined conditions in culture secrete a protein of molecular weight (Mr) 70 000 which is immunologically similar to chicken thiamin carrier protein (TCP). Synthesis of immunoreactive TCP by these cells is demonstrated by immunoprecipitation of [35S]methionine incorporated, newly synthesized proteins with monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies to chicken TCP. The amount of immunoreactive TCP secreted into the culture supernatant is quantitated by using a specific radioimmunoassay. Under the influence of LH, secretion of immunoreactive TCP is enhanced 3-fold and can be inhibited by up to 70% with aromatase inhibitor (1,4,6-androstatrien-3,17-dione). Cyclic AMP acts as a second messenger in the sequence of events involved in LH-induced elevation of immunoreactive TCP in Leydig cells. The effects of exogenous estradiol-17beta and diethylstilbestrol are comparable in terms of stimulation of secretion of immunoreactive TCP by these cells. Tamoxifen brought about a 70% decrease in the elevated levels of immunoreactive TCP. These results suggest that estrogen mediates immunoreactive TCP induction in hormonally stimulated adult rat Leydig cells.  (+info)

Lotus japonicus THIC is expressed in all organs, and the encoded protein catalyzes thiamine biosynthesis. Loss of function produces chlorosis, a typical thiamine-deficiency phenotype, and mortality. To investigate thiamines role in symbiosis, we focused on THI1, a thiamine-biosynthesis gene expressed in roots, nodules, and seeds. The thi1 mutant had green leaves, but formed small nodules and immature seeds. These phenotypes were rescued by THI1 complementation and by exogenous thiamine. Thus, THI1 is required for nodule enlargement and seed maturation. On the other hand, colonization by arbuscular mycorrhiza (AM) fungus Rhizophagus irregularis was not affected in the thi1 mutant or by exogenous thiamine. However, spores of R. irregularis stored more thiamine than the source (host plants), despite lacking thiamine biosynthesis genes. Therefore, disturbance of the thiamine supply would affect progeny phenotypes such as spore formation and hyphal growth. Further investigation will be required to ...
Thiamine (vitamin B1) is a water-soluble vitamin. It is absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and taken up into tissues by transport proteins and converted to thiamine pyrophosphate (TPP) by thiamine pyrophosphokinase (TPPK). TPP is a co-factor of pyruvate dehydrogenase (PDH), α-ketoglutarate dehydrogenase and transketolase (TKT)-enzymes involved in the metabolism of glucose.. Various transport proteins are involved in the transport of thiamine monophosphate (TMP) and TPP across membranes. These include thiamine transported isoform-1 (THTR1) and thiamine transporter isoform-2 (THTR2), reduced folate carrier-1 (RFC-1), which transports TMP and TPP across cell plasma membranes and the mitochondrial TPP transporter (mTHTR). Thiamine and TMP/TPP transporters may have abnormal expression in diabetes. Increased THTR1 levels are found in red blood cells (RBCs) and mononuclear leucocytes of patients with diabetes compared to those of healthy subjects. RBC precursors and leucocytes appeared to ...

Inhibition of thiamine transporters has been proposed as a putative mechanism for the observation of Wernickes encephalopathy and subsequent termination of clinical development of fedratinib, a Janus kinase inhibitor (JAKi). This study aimed to determine the potential for other JAKi to inhibit thiamine transport using human epithelial colorectal adenocarcinoma (Caco-2) and thiamine transporter (THTR) overexpressing cells and to better elucidate the structural basis for interacting with THTR. Only JAKi containing a 2,4-diaminopyrimidine were observed to inhibit thiamine transporters. Fedratinib inhibited thiamine uptake into Caco-2 cells (IC50 = 0.940 µM) and THTR-2 (IC50 = 1.36 µM) and, to a lesser extent, THTR-1 (IC50 = 7.10 µM) overexpressing cells. Two other JAKi containing this moiety, AZD1480 and cerdulatinib, were weaker inhibitors of the thiamine transporters. Other JAKi-including monoaminopyrimidines, such as momelotinib, and nonaminopyrimidines, such as filgotinib-did not have any ...
Abstract: Metabolism of aminopyrine, sodium benzoate and toxicity of cyclophosphamide were studied in 185 male rats under conditions of various content of vitamin B1 in the animals. Deficiency of thiamin led to an increase in excretion of 4-aminoantipyrine and especially of its acetylated derivative. After administration of thiamin metabolism of aminopyrine was not distinctly altered, while thiamin diphosphate inhibited the drug biotransformation. In deficiency of vitamin B1 transformation of benzoic acid into hippuric acid was inhibited but formation of glucuronides was elevated. Administration of thiamin or thiamin diphosphate stimulated the benzoic acid conjugation and inhibited the glucuronides formation. Deficiency of vitamin B1 accelerated the cyclophosphamide toxicity. Preadministration of thiamin and especially of thiamin diphosphate decreased the toxic effect of cyclophosphamide ...
p,Bacteria and yeast utilize different strategies for sulfur incorporation in the biosynthesis of the thiamin thiazole. Bacteria use thiocarboxylated proteins. In contrast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae thiazole synthase (THI4p) uses an active site cysteine as the sulfide source and is inactivated after a single turnover. Here, we demonstrate that the Thi4 ortholog from Methanococcus jannaschii uses exogenous sulfide and is catalytic. Structural and biochemical studies on this enzyme elucidate the mechanistic details of the sulfide transfer reactions.,/p,. ...
WHAT DOES THIAMIN (B1) DO FOR US?. Thiamine exists within us in several forms the most active of which is thiamine pyrophosphate.. Together with niacin (B3) , riboflavin (B2) and lipoic acid, thiamine assists a small but important number of enzymes in the production of energy from food. It is a coenzyme or partner in creating energy from sugars and in the synthesis of 3 amino acids: leucine, valine and isoleucine. Brain cells require a great deal more thiamin than any other part of the body.. Energy created from food creates reactions throughout the body and helps us maintain our health and strength.. Up to 30 milligrams of excess thiamin are stored in the skeletal muscles, heart, brain, liver and the kidneys. Thiamine is also found in its free form (unphosphorylated) in blood plasma, milk, cerebrospinal fluid and most fluids outside the cells (extracellular fluid). Thiamin pyrophosphate is carried by red blood cells bound to proteins mainly albumin to cells thoughout the body.. Note: Lipoic ...
Thiamine transporter-2 deficiency is a recessive disease caused by mutations in the SLC19A3 gene. Patients manifest acute episodes of encephalopathy; symmetric lesions in the cortex, basal ganglia, thalami or periaqueductal gray matter, and a dramatic response to biotin or thiamine. We report a 30-day-old patient with mutations in the SLC19A3 gene who presented with acute encephalopathy and increased level of lactate in the blood (8.6 mmol/L) and cerebrospinal fluid (7.12 mmol/L), a high excretion of α-ketoglutarate in the urine, and increased concentrations of the branched-chain amino acids leucine and isoleucine in the plasma. MRI detected bilateral and symmetric cortico-subcortical lesions involving the perirolandic area, bilateral putamina, and medial thalami. Some lesions showed low apparent diffusion coefficient values suggesting an acute evolution; others had high values likely to be subacute or chronic, most likely related to the perinatal period. After treatment with thiamine and ...
In 1961, Wada et al. reported the physicochemical properties of benfotiamine and its possible use as a therapeutic agent [31]. Benfotiamine is more easily absorbed by the body and oral administration results in higher thiamine and ThDP blood levels in animals than an equivalent dose of thiamine. A few years, later Shindo and coworkers [32-35] studied in more detail the mechanism of absorption and the metabolic fate of benfotiamine in animal tissues. Their results suggested that benfotiamine (given orally) is first dephosphorylated to S-benzoylthiamine by the ecto-alkaline phosphatase present in the brush borders of intestinal mucosal cells. The more lipophilic S-benzoylthiamine then diffuses through the membranes of intestinal and endothelial cells and appears in the venous mesenteric blood. A significant part of S-benzoylthiamine is captured by erythrocytes [34] and converted to free thiamine through a slow non-enzymatic transfer of the S-benzoyl group to SH groups of glutathione. In the liver, ...
A genetic analysis of thiamine metabolism has been carried out in the budding yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae. A collection of thiamine auxotrophic mutants were isolated following UV and Ty insertion mutagenesis. The mutations responsible for the auxotrophic phenotypes were characterised to different extents through complementation analysis, molecular cloning and enzyme assays. In total 171 mutants were analysed and all of these have been assigned to complementation groups, genes and/or functions. Some newly isolated mutations were found to be allelic with the known biosynthetic genes, THI4 and THI6 others were in the regulatory genes, THI2 and THI3 two more defined a new function for the transcription factor, Pdc2p, namely thiamine gene activation. In addition the previously known mutations, thil, thi2, and thi3, were complemented and the sequences of the wild-type THI1, THI2 and THI3 genes were found. From the deduced amino acid sequences roles for the gene products were hypothesised. The ...

Sulbutiamine, also known as Arcalion and Enerion, is a synthetic drug developed in the 1960s in Japan that is currently used as a nootropic for energy, stimulation, and mood.. Chemically, it was derived from Thiamine, or vitamin B1, as a therapy to reduce vitamin B1 deficiency. It is made up of two Thiamine molecules bound by a sulfur group. Sulbutiamine is fat soluble, and has been found to have higher bioavailability into the brain when compared to Thiamine. In one study on rats it was found to increase plasma Thiamine levels 2.41 times more than Thiamine, making it an effective vitamin B1 source for the brain and body. (1). Deficiency in vitamin B1 can lead to depression and problems with memory, attention, and mood. The benefits of Sulbutiamine appear to extend beyond those who are deficient in this vitamin and to healthy adults.. Evidence suggests that this compound exhibits neuroprotective effects. It may protect brain cells from ischemia; hippocampal brain cells and synaptic transmission ...

Thiamine-dependent enzymes (TDEs) control metabolic pathways that are frequently altered in cancer and therefore present cancer-relevant targets. We have previously shown that the recombinant enzyme thiaminase cleaves and depletes intracellular thiamine, has growth inhibitory activity against leukemia and breast cancer cell lines, and that its growth inhibitory effects were reversed in leukemia cell lines by rapamycin. Now, we first show further evidence of thiaminase therapeutic potential by demonstrating its activity against breast and leukemia xenografts, and against a primary leukemia xenograft. We therefore further explored the metabolic effects of thiaminase in combination with rapamycin in leukemia and breast cell lines. Thiaminase decreased oxygen consumption rate and increased extracellular acidification rate, consistent with the inhibitory effect of acute thiamine depletion on the activity of the TDEs pyruvate dehydrogenase and 2-oxoglutarate dehydrogenase complexes; these effects were
The aim of the study is to explore the possibility of vegetables being used as carriers of thiamine. The influence of carrier type (thiamine hydrochloride-TCh and thiamine pyrophosphate-TP) for the thiamine stability were investigated. Two varieties of pumpkin, Muscat and Hokkaido, as well as Cauliflower and Broccoli, were used as a matrix for the thiamine applied. The impregnated and freeze-dried vegetables were stored (230 days) with changing access to light (access to and restriction of light) and temperature (21 °C and 40 °C). The analyzed carriers were also used in the production of gnocchi dumplings. The content of thiamine was analyzed using the thiochromium method. In the study, consumer tests (n = 199) and sensory profiling were used to assess the impact of thiamine carriers on the sensory quality of gnocchi dumplings. It was found that the introduction of dried vegetables at the level of 30% allows for high sensory desirability of analyzed products, as well as suggesting the possibility of

This study was to investigate the effect of dietary thiamin on the immune response and intestinal microflora in juvenile Jian carp (Cyprinus carpio var. Jian). Seven diets (0.25, 0.48, 0.79, 1.06, 1.37, 1.63 and 2.65 mg thiamin kg−1) were fed to Jian carp (8.20 ± 0.02 g). At the end of feeding trial, red blood cell counts and white blood cell counts increased with increasing dietary thiamin levels up to 0.79 and 1.06 mg kg−1 diet, respectively (P , 0.05); Lactobacillus counts in intestine increased gradually, and maximum values obtained when the thiamin level was at 0.79 mg kg−1 diet (P , 0.05). After the feeding trial, fish were injected with Aeromonas hydrophila only one time on the first day of the challenge trial and fed the same diets as the growth trial for 17 days. The survival rate, leucocyte phagocytic activity, lectin potency, acid phosphatase activity, lysozyme activity, total iron-binding capacity and immunoglobulin M content of fish after being injected with A. hydrophila ...
The Neurospora crassa homologue of the yeast no message in rtiiamine (nmt-1) gene was characterized. The deduced 342-amino-acid gene product has more than 60% identity with other fungal homologues and 42% similarity to a putative bacterial permease. In addition to three introns disrupting the coding sequence, a differentially spliced intron in the 5′ untranslated region was also detected. Unlike other fungi, the N. crassa nmt-1 gene is repressed only 6- to 8-fold by exogenous thiamine concentrations above 0.5 μM and a high basal level of nmt-1 mRNA persists even at 5 μM thiamine. Immuno-blotting with purified antibodies detected two variants of NMT-1 which differ in size and charge. The more abundant 39-kDa form is more strongly repressed by thiamine than the 37-kDa protein. NMT-1 abundance modulates slowly in response to changes in the concentration of exogenous thiamine, suggesting that N. crassa maintains thiamine reserves in excess of immediate needs. Disruption of the nmt-1 gene ...
The model describes thiamine ABC transporter, periplasmic protein in bacteria and archae. The protein belongs to the larger ABC transport system. It consists of at least three components: the thiamine binding periplasmic protein; an inner membrane permease; an ATP-binding subunit. It has been experimentally demonstrated that the mutants in the various steps in the de novo synthesis of the thiamine and the biologically active form, namely thiamine pyrophosphate can be exogenously supplemented with thiamine, thiamine monophosphate (TMP) or thiamine pyrophosphate (TPP ...
The wealthiest food resources of thiamine consist of numerous beans, nuts, seeds, algae (or spirulina powder), and also yeast, particularly dietary yeast which is a spices frequently utilized by vegetarians that normally tastes in a similar way to cheese. Some sorts of meat body organs, consisting of liver, likewise have smaller sized quantities, as do particular entire grains like oats as well as barley.. Thiamine is generally discovered in many whole-grain as well as enriched grain items like breads, pastas, rice, and also strengthened grain grains. These foods are improved with thiamine, indicating thiamine is included right into the food artificially.. While several of these foods do normally include thiamine in their entire, unrefined kind, a great deal of the vitamin is shed throughout the refining procedure and also consequently need to be included back in after. In items where thiamine is contributed to the food artificially, you will typically see words enriched or strengthened. ...

In this phase II trial, we found no difference in post-operative lactate levels or clinical outcomes between patients receiving thiamine or placebo. We did find a significant difference in post-operative cellular and global oxygen consumption between the two groups.. To our knowledge, this is the second randomized, placebo-controlled study to date to examine the efficacy of thiamine in this patient population. Recently, Luger et al. enrolled 30 patients undergoing cardiac surgery [47]. Patients were randomized to one dose of pre-operative thiamine (300 mg) or placebo. Similar to our findings, they found no difference in post-operative lactate levels or clinical outcomes. There are a few key differences between the study by Luger et al. and that presented here. First, we enrolled more than twice the number of patients. Second, we only included moderate- to high-risk patients (i.e., those with a EuroSCORE II , 1.5 %). Third, we provided two doses of thiamine: one before and one after the surgery. ...

Case Description: A 46 year old female with history of hypothyroidism was admitted after an elective posterior cervical decompressive laminectomy for cervical myelopathy. Of note, the patient chronically used laxatives for constipation secondary to hypothyroidism. The patient presented with 3/5 bilateral upper extremity, 4/5 bilateral lower extremity strength, and decreased sensation in her feet. She exhibited an ataxic gait with ambulation. She required maximum assistance for mobility and transfers with therapy which was not consistent with her initial assessment. Her encephalopathy prevented her from participating fully in therapies and she became more debilitated. As patient exhibited multiple loose stools her thiamine level was evaluated and found to be undetectable. Due to her poor capacity and insight, intravenous thiamine was administered and her thiamine level increased to 14nmol/L. She experienced resolution of encephalopathy with this treatment and was able to perform activities with ...
If you deprive people of thiamine, they exhibit symptoms closely resembling Alzheimers disease. The damage is often irreversible (taking thiamine often does not reverse the symptoms), especially when thiamine deprivation is maintained for a prolong period of time. The cause of Alzheimers disease is presently unknown. What is the harm of taking allithiamines while scientists investigate? Allithiamines are available in almost every corner store in the form of garlic tablets. Im sorry to say that I have no idea what the concentration of allithiamines are in garlic tablets. As a result, I recommend taking benfotiamine or TTFD, two specific allithiamines that can be purchased easily enough on the internet (I have yet to personally find a bottle of either of these two supplements on the shelves of a retail store). I will shortly be posting references to scientific literature. Many of these references were the source of the logic in this column ...
Although proteins fulfil most of the requirements that biology has for structural and functional components such as enzymes and receptors, RNA can also serve in these capacities. For example, RNA has sufficient structural plasticity to form ribozyme1,2 and receptor3,4 elements that exhibit considerable enzymatic power and binding specificity. Moreover, these activities can be combined to create allosteric ribozymes5,6 that are modulated by effector molecules. It has also been proposed7,8,9,10,11,12 that certain messenger RNAs might use allosteric mechanisms to mediate regulatory responses depending on specific metabolites. We report here that mRNAs encoding enzymes involved in thiamine (vitamin B1) biosynthesis in Escherichia coli can bind thiamine or its pyrophosphate derivative without the need for protein cofactors. The mRNA-effector complex adopts a distinct structure that sequesters the ribosome-binding site and leads to a reduction in gene expression. This metabolite-sensing regulatory system
Th-e B-complex vitamins are found in brewers yeast, liver, whole-grain cereals, rice, nuts, milk, eggs, meats, fish, fruits, leafy green vegetables and many other foods. Keep reading for more specifics about each of the B vitamins: Thiamine (B1) The B vitamin thiamine is essential for the metabolism of carbohydrates into the simple sugar glucose. The chemical process involves the combination of thiamine with pyruvic acid to form a coenzyme, a substance that, when combined with other substances, forms an enzyme. Enzymes are those all-important proteins that speed up chemical reactions in the body. Thiamine is also important for the proper functioning of the nervous system. In this instance, thiamine acts as a coenzyme in the production of the neurotransmitter (chemical messenger between nerve fibers) acetylcholine. Thiamine deficiency is rare but often occurs in alcoholics, because alcohol interferes with the absorption of thiamine through the intestines. There are several health problems ...
AICAR accumulates in a purH mutant and inhibits the conversion of AIR to HMP, a step catalyzed by the SAM radical protein ThiC (14). The ThiC reaction has been reconstituted in vitro and is not affected by AICAR, indicating the effect in vivo was indirect (26). The present study was initiated to determine the mechanism by which AICAR accumulation inhibits the conversion of AIR to HMP.. The ThiC reaction uses SAM as a cosubstrate and is sensitive to fluctuations in CoA levels in vivo (14, 23, 24, 50). Nutritional studies led to the hypothesis that one metabolic consequence of AICAR accumulation was decreased CoA levels. Metabolite pool measurements confirmed that strains that accumulated AICAR had ∼3-fold-lower total CoA levels than the wild type. Although this level of CoA reduction does not generate a thiamine requirement in an otherwise wild-type strain, conditions that reduce flux through the purine biosynthetic pathway (i.e., adenine in the medium) increase the CoA requirement for thiamine ...

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 ...

... (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 ...

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 ...
