1.Arginine can be produced in the kidney from citrulline. An important source of circulating citrulline is the intestinal breakdown of glutamine. Consequently, partial enterectomy leads to decreased plasma citrulline levels. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effect of diminished arterial citrulline levels on renal arginine production and total-body free arginine pools.. 2.Renal amino acid metabolism was studied 24 ;h after 75% small bowel resection in rats fasted overnight (16 ;h) (n = 12; total fast 40 ;h). Sham-operated (n = 9) and non-operated 16-h and 40-h fasted controls were studied in parallel (n = 8/n = 7). During anaesthesia, l-(2,3-3H)-arginine and para-aminohippuric acid were infused until steady state. Subsequently, arterial and renal venous blood samples were taken. Concentrations of para-aminohippurate and amino acids and specific activity of arginine and citrulline were measured to calculate renal plasma flow, net renal uptake or release, and unidirectional ...
Since the first description of citrulline as a potential marker for intestinal function in 1998, its use has been investigated in a variety of disease processes including Short Bowel Syndrome, Celiac disease, chemotherapy and radiation induced intestinal injury, infections producing intestinal cytopathic effects like Adenovirus, and predicting rejection in intestinal transplantation. The use of citrulline levels as a diagnostic tool to predict gastrointestinal disease in the premature population has not been properly addressed.. The introduction of enteral nutrition in the premature infant is a process of trial and error, knowing that the immaturity of the gastrointestinal system may lead to frequent episodes of feeding intolerance. This is augmented by the fear of the development of necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) once feeds are commenced. NEC is a condition characterized by disruption of the intestinal epithelial barrier, a pathogenic process shared with some of the conditions mentioned above ...
Rat peritoneal macrophages were incubated in the presence of 0.05-1.0 mM-[14C]citrulline. The synthesis of [14C]arginine from 0.1 mM-[14C]citrulline was about 300 pmol/h per 10(6) cells in macrophages from saline-injected (control) rats. Both arginine synthesis from citrulline and nitrate production (an indicator of NO generation) were increased about 3-fold in the cells from lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-treated animals. The arginine synthesis was very sensitive to extracellular citrulline concentration in the range found in plasma (0.05-0.1 mM). The rate of arginine synthesis from citrulline was inhibited by about 20% by 0.5 mM-L-glutamine in both control and LPS-treated rat cells, but was inhibited by 0.5 mM-L-arginine only in control cells. Our results demonstrate that citrulline, produced by NO synthetase, can be recycled to arginine in macrophages. The citrulline-arginine cycle may contribute to the regulation of intracellular availability of arginine and thus the prolonged production of NO by ...
Citrullination, the post-translational conversion of arginines to citrullines, may contribute to rheumatoid arthritis development given the generation of anti-citrullinated protein antibodies (ACPAs). However, it is not known which peptidylarginine deiminase (PAD) catalyzes the citrullination seen in inflammation. PAD4 exacerbates inflammatory arthritis and is critical for neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs). NETs display citrullinated antigens targeted by ACPAs and thus may be a source of citrullinated protein. However, PAD4 is not required for citrullination in inflamed lungs. PAD2 is important for citrullination in healthy tissues and is present in NETs, but its role in citrullination in the inflamed joint, NETosis and inflammatory arthritis is unknown. Here we use mice with TNFα-induced inflammatory arthritis, a model of rheumatoid arthritis, to identify the roles of PAD2 and PAD4 in citrullination, NETosis, and arthritis. In mice with TNFα-induced arthritis, citrullination in the ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Plasma arginine and ornithine are the main citrulline precursors in mice infused with arginine-free diets. AU - Marini, Juan C.. AU - Didelija, Inka Cajo. AU - Castillo, Leticia. AU - Lee, Brendan. PY - 2010/8/1. Y1 - 2010/8/1. N2 - Dietary arginine is the main dietary precursor for citrulline synthesis, but it is not known if other precursors can compensate when arginine is absent in the diet. To address this question, the contributions of plasma and dietary precursors were determined by using multitracer protocols in conscious mice infused i.g. either an arginine-sufficient diet [Arg(+)] or an arginine-free diet [Arg(2)]. The plasma entry rate of citrulline and arginine did not differ between the 2 diet groups (156 ± 6 and 564 ± 30 μmol·kg-1·h-1, respectively); however, the entry rate of ornithine was greater in the mice fed the Arg(+) than the Arg(-) diet (332 ± 33 vs. 180 ± 16 μmol·kg -1·h-1). There was a greater utilization of plasma ornithine for the synthesis of ...

INTRODUCTION: Smoking is a well-established risk factor for rheumatoid arthritis (RA), and it has been proposed that smoking-induced citrullination renders autoantigens immunogenic. To investigate this mechanism, we examined human lung tissue from 40 subjects with defined smoking status, with or without chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and control tissues from other organs for citrullinated proteins and the deiminating enzymes peptidylarginine deiminase type-2 (PAD2) and -4 (PAD4). METHODS: Lung tissue samples, dissected from lobectomy specimens from 10 never smokers, 10 smokers without airflow limitation, 13 COPD smokers and eight COPD ex-smokers, and control tissue samples (spleen, skeletal muscle, liver, ovary, lymph node, kidney and heart), were analysed for citrullinated proteins, PAD2 and PAD4 by immunoblotting. Citrulline and homocitrulline residues in enolase and vimentin were analysed by partial purification by gel electrophoresis followed by mass spectrometry in 12 of the lung

Objective: To investigate the dynamics of IgG1 and IgG4 anti-citrullinated protein antibodies (ACPA) subclasses during anti-TNF treatment in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA).. Methods: IgG, IgG1 and IgG4 ACPA levels were determined by ELISA on citrullinated fibrinogen (ACF) and IgG1:IgG4 ACPA ratios were calculated. A pilot study was performed in 28 ACF positive patients treated with infliximab for one year. Confirmation of the results was obtained using a cohort of 180 consecutive patients treated with adalimumab for 28 weeks.. Results: The median reduction in ACF levels was 31% for total IgG, 29% for IgG1, 40% for IgG4 and 22% for the IgG4:IgG1 ACF ratio in the infliximab cohort. In the adalimumab treated patients, ACF levels declined 14% for total IgG and IgG1, and 36% for IgG4 ACF; the IgG4:IgG1 ratio was reduced by 24% (all percentage values P , 0.05). The decrease in antibody levels was correlated with the clinical response; EULAR good responders had the greatest decline in antibody ...
Methods A strong and specific association between autoantibodies against citrullinated proteins and serum markers for osteoclast-mediated bone resorption was found in the serum of RA patients. Moreover, human osteoclasts expressed enzymes eliciting protein citrullination such as PAD2 and revealed specific inducible N-terminal citrullination of vimentin during their differentiation process. Affinity purified human autoantibodies against mutated citrullinated vimentin (MCV) not only bound to the osteoclast surface, but also lead to a robust induction of osteoclastogenesis and bone resorptive activity. Adoptive transfer of human MCV antibodies into RAG1-/- mice was followed by induction of osteopenia and increased osteoclastogenesis in vivo. This effect was based on the inducible release of TNFa from osteoclast precursors and the subsequent increase of CD11b+ osteoclast precursor cell numbers with enhanced expression of RANK and CSF1 receptors in vivo.. ...
Autoantibodies directed against citrulline-containing proteins have an impressive specificity of nearly 100% in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and have been suggested to be involved in the disease pathogenesis. The targeted epitopes are generated by a post-translational modification catalysed by the calcium-dependent enzyme peptidyl arginine deiminase (PAD), which converts positively charged arginine to polar but uncharged citrulline. The aim of this study was to explore the effects of citrullination on the immunogenicity of autoantigens as well as on potential arthritogenicity. Thus, immune responses to citrullinated rat serum albumin (Cit-RSA) and to unmodified rat serum albumin (RSA) were examined as well as arthritis development induced by immunisation with citrullinated rat collagen type II (Cit-CII) or unmodified CII. In addition, to correlate the presence of citrullinated proteins and the enzyme PAD4 with different stages of arthritis, synovial tissues obtained at different time points from
Five mammalian peptidylarginine deiminases (PADs), PAD1-4 and PAD6, each with a defined tissue distribution, mediate citrullination of arginine in the presence of sufficient concentrations of Ca2+ (reviewed in Ref.26). Interestingly, PAD enzymes were found in monocytes (PAD4) and macrophages (PAD2 and PAD4) in synovial fluid (27), indicating that they could be involved in citrullination of synovial proteins once they become activated. Indeed, it has been shown that citrullination of synovial proteins is an active process during inflammation (28, 29) and that several citrullinated proteins, such as fibrin (30), can be found in the RA synovium. Together with citrullinated proteins in the inflamed joint, B cells actively secreting ACPA have been detected in synovial fluid and synovium from RA patients (31, 32) but not in peripheral blood or in healthy controls. The presence of IgM ACPA-secreting B cells in synovial fluid is indicative of a continuous activation of B cells specific for citrullinated ...
Objective Production of anticitrullinated protein antibodies (ACPAs) is an important biomarker for rheumatoid arthritis (RA). We undertook this study to determine whether genetic factors (HLADRB1 alleles) are associated with extreme ACPA levels in individuals with ACPA-positive RA, and to ascertain whether there are any phenotypic characteristics associated with these subgroups of RA. Methods HLADRB1 allelic groups were genotyped in 1,073 ACPA-positive RA patients from the Swedish Epidemiological Investigation of Rheumatoid Arthritis study. We found that 283 patients (26.4%) had high ACPA levels (defined as ,1,500 units/ml using the Euro-Diagnostica anti-CCP2 test), while the rest of the patients had moderate ACPA levels and served as the comparison group. A replication group consisted of 235 RA patients. Results No significant differences in baseline disease activity were observed between patients with high and those with moderate ACPA levels. However, the HLADRB1*15 allele was associated with ...

Background: A novel protein post-translational modification, citrullination was shown previously in a number of key myofilament proteins, tropomyosin (R 133, R 238), actin (R 39) and myosin heavy chain (R 1176, 1303, 1434) in HF patient (values for total spectra counts for citrullinated proteins in control, ISHD and IDCM: 1.8 ±1.3, 3.2±2.7 and 2.3±1.9, respectively). The alterations in contractile proteins underlying enhanced Ca2+-sensitivity of the contractile apparatus in end-stage failing human myocardium are still not resolved. Protein citrullination arises from the enzymatic conversion of arginine residues to citrulline result in loss of a positive charge and reduction in hydrogen-bonding ability. And here, the biophysical and biochemical effect on myofilament function is determined.. Method: F-actin-tropomyosin binding, tropomyosin-actin-myosin, actin-myosin and myosin ATPase activity assays, and F-actin stability assays were carried out.. Results: In vitro citrullinated tropomyosin ...
RESULTS: 19.5% of plasmablast-derived antibodies from CCP-positive RA patients, but none from the CCP-negative RA patient or healthy controls, specifically recognized citrullinated antigens. The immunoglobulin genes encoding these ACPAs were highly mutated with increased replacement/silent mutation ratios, suggesting the involvement of active antigen selection in ACPA generation. Interestingly, 63% of the ACPAs cross-reacted with OMAs and/or citrullinated enolase from P. gingivalis. The reactivity of ACPAs against citrullinated proteins from P. gingivalis was confirmed by immuno blot and mass spectrometry. Furthermore, germ-line reversions of some ACPAs completely eliminated their reactivity to citrullinated human antigens but retained their reactivity to P. gingivalis ...

Practical applications - What the scientists say: "Although citrulline malate supplements are marketed to improve muscle performance via a reduction in lactic acid and ammonia production, the current study does not fully support this assertion. While our investigation did note improved muscle performance occurring during the strength protocol,blood lactate remained indifferent comparing the citrulline malate treatment to the placebo treatment. The known capacity of citrulline malate to increase plasma L-arginine (Hickner. 2006), act as a buffer to lactate and hyperammonemia (Briand. 1992; Giannesini. 2011; Verleye. 1995) remain valid; however, further research is necessary to determine which mechanism may be directly attributed ergogenic effects occurring during resistance training protocols. Finally, specific investigations utilizing training protocols designed to test muscular strength and power are warranted." (Wax. 2014 ...

The Citrulline is basically the amino acid which is produced naturally within the human body. However you can also consume Citrulline from additional supplements which will help in increasing the levels of Citrulline in your body which is beneficial in increasing the performance during workouts and exercises. One of the impact that Citrulline has on the body is it increases the flow of blood to the tissues of the body. When you compare this in the context of workouts, the intake of Citrulline helps in supplying your exercising muscles with the required nutrients as well as oxygen that is required for optimum performance.. One of the research conducted found out that cyclists who took Citrulline lasted 12% longer before getting exhausted in comparison to those who were on placebo. Another study found out that the Citrulline has positive impact on the upper body for training purposes. The participants who took Citrulline were able to perform 53% more of the repetitions in comparison to those who ...

Autoantibodies directed against citrullinated epitopes of proteins are highly diagnostic of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and elevated levels of protein citrullination can be found in the joints of RA patients. Although the pathophysiological mechanisms and the cell type(s) responsible for the increase in protein citrullination remain incompletely understood, the neutrophil is emerging as a prime suspect. Here we report that fully viable resting neutrophils from healthy donors have enzymatically active PAD4 exposed on their surface and that they spontaneously secrete enzymatically active PAD2. Activation of the neutrophils by several stimulatory agents, such as immune complexes, tumor necrosis factor a, phorbol myristate acetate, and agonists of Toll-like receptors1, 5, 7, and 9, increased the immunoreactive amount of PAD4 on the cells. However, immune complex, LPS and PMA stimulation reduced PAD2 secretion. The presence of extracellular PAD2 and PAD4 was not caused by NETosis, apoptosis, or lysis ...
Arginine is derived from dietary protein intake, body protein breakdown, or endogenous de novo arginine production. The latter may be linked to the availability of citrulline, which is the immediate precursor of arginine and limiting factor for de novo arginine production. Arginine metabolism is highly compartmentalized due to the expression of the enzymes involved in arginine metabolism in various organs. A small fraction of arginine enters the NO synthase (NOS) pathway. Tetrahydrobiopterin (BH4) is an essential and rate-limiting cofactor for the production of NO ...
The ability of a specially prepared water propolis extract (PWE) to preserve the functional activity of the intestinal mucosa after radiation exposure was studied. PWE was given orally (650mg/kg) to rats five days prior to irradiation by 6Gy and continued for further two days. Rats were sacrificed 24h later, intestinal segments were examined histologically and homogenates were used to assess relevant biochemical parameters reflecting intestinal injury. Irradiation led to a rise in the histological damage score, a rise in tissue TNF-α and TBARS, and a decrease in sucrase, alkaline phosphatase, GSH and cholecystokinin as well as a decrease in plasma citrulline ...

L-arginine and L-citrulline are chemically related amino acids, and they are frequently converted back and forth in your cells. However, the conversion from L-arginine to L-citrulline requires a different metabolic pathway than the conversion from L-citrulline to L-arginine. The conversion of citrulline to arginine utilizes a pathway that first produces ornithine. The arginine-to-citrulline conversion is more direct and produces a molecule of nitric oxide. One of nitric oxides many effects is to dilate your arteries, which improves blood flow to exercising muscles. It is believed that supplementation with L-citrulline increases arginine synthesis, which in turn enhances nitric oxide production.. Considerations. Supplementation with L-citrulline malate could improve exercise performance through two mechanisms. By facilitating removal of ammonia from exercising muscles, citrulline enhances cellular metabolism, improves energy production and extends exercise times. By increasing nitric oxide ...

Felix, Craig imagines my point totally accurately! Encouraged by this research, timoptic ocudose cost which confirmed the rationale for oral L-citrulline supplementation as a donor for the L-arginine/NO pathway in patients with ED, researchers in the Department of Urology at the University of Foggia, Foggia, Italy, conducted a single-blind trial, in which 24 men with mild ED (erection hardness score of 3), mean age 565 years, received a placebo for 1 month and L-citrulline, 15 g/d in 2 doses, for another month? Both standing and supine blood pressure are reduced following administration of lisinopril, timoptic ocudose cost and although symptomatic hypotension is rare, it occurs more commonly in patients who are hypovolemic or hyponatremicThe mechanism by which lisinopril improves the outcome following an acute MI involves reduced peripheral vascular resistance, improved perfusion and a direct action on the myocardium.
