Hereditary intrinsic factor deficiency is a rare disease characterized by cobalamin deficiency with the lack of gastric intrinsic factor because of gastric intrinsic factor (GIF) mutations. Patients usually present with cobalamin deficiency without gastroscopy abnormality and intrinsic factor antibodies. A Chinese patient presented with recurrent severe anemia since age 2 with low cobalamin level and a mild elevation of indirect bilirubin. The hemoglobin level normalized each time after intramuscular vitamin B12 injection. Gene test verified a c.776delA frame shift mutation in exon 6 combined with c.585C | A nonsense early termination mutation in exon 5 of GIF which result in the dysfunction of gastric intrinsic factor protein. The hereditary intrinsic factor deficiency in literature was further reviewed and the ancestry of different mutation sites were discussed. A novel compound heterozygous mutation of GIF in a Chinese patient of hereditary intrinsic factor deficiency was reported. It was the first
Intrinsic factor (IF), also known as gastric intrinsic factor (GIF), is a glycoprotein produced by the parietal cells of the stomach. It is necessary for the absorption of vitamin B12 (cobalamin) later on in the ileum of the small intestine. In humans, the gastric intrinsic factor protein is encoded by the GIF gene. Haptocorrin (also known as HC, R protein, and transcobalamin I, TCN1) is another glycoprotein secreted by the salivary glands which binds to vitamin B12. Vitamin B12 is acid sensitive and in binding to transcobalamin I it can safely pass through the acidic stomach to the duodenum. In the less acidic environment of the small intestine, pancreatic enzymes digest the glycoprotein carrier and vitamin B12 can then bind to intrinsic factor. This new complex is then absorbed by the epithelial cells (enterocytes) of the ileum. Inside the cells, B12 dissociates once again and binds to another protein, transcobalamin II (TCN2); the new complex can then exit the epithelial cells to be carried ...

Cubilin is a 460-kd multiligand hydrophobic protein that binds to intrinsic factor cobalamin (Cbl-IF) with a high affinity and that is expressed in both kidney and ileal epithelial cells. Based on this observation, it has been speculated that cubilin and intrinsic factor cobalamin receptor (IFCR) are identical.1Recently, Kristiansen et al showed that the P1297L mutation of cubilin (FM1) associated with selective congenital cobalamin malabsorption (Imerslund-Gräsbeck disease, described in Finnish patients; also named megaloblastic anemia 1 [MGA1]) causes a 5-fold decrease of the binding domain affinity for Cbl-IF.2 They concluded that this decreased affinity explained the malabsorption of Cbl and the Cbl deficiency related to the FM1 mutation of MGA1 patients. In our opinion, the pathogenetic mechanism suggested by Kristiansen et al does not explain the whole biologic phenotype of the Finnish patients. The P1297L mutation of cubilin has been found in 16 of 17 Finnish patients but not in ...
High specificity for pernicious anaemia. A positive result is sufficient to establish the diagnosis.. Sensitivity is low thus a negative result does not exclude the diagnosis of pernicious anaemia.. Type 1 (blocking) antibody prevents the attachment of vitamin B12 to intrinsic factor: present in 50-60% of patients with pernicious anaemia.. Type 2 (precipitating) antibody prevents attachment of the vitamin B12-intrinsic factor complex to ileal receptors: present in 30% of patients with pernicious anaemia, and only in those who also have Type 1 antibodies.. Immunoassay kits which rely on blocking function of antibodies are usually less sensitive.. ...
Cubilin is a protein that in humans is encoded by the CUBN gene. Cubilin (CUBN) acts as a receptor for intrinsic factor-vitamin B12 complexes. The role of receptor is supported by the presence of 27 CUB domains. Cubilin shows a restricted mode of expression according to protein profiling and transcriptomics analyses, and is essentially only present in the kidneys and small intestine. Mutations in CUBN may play a role in autosomal recessive megaloblastic anemia. A complex of amnionless and cubilin forms the cubam receptor. It can be found in the proximal tubule forming part complexes with megalin; the function of these complexes is reabsorptive and can be inhibited by sodium maleate. Cubilin is a potential diagnostic and prognostic cancer biomarker for kidney cancer. Based on patient survival data, high levels of cubilin in tumor cells is a favourable prognostic biomarker in renal cell carcinoma.

Cubilin (CUBN) acts as a receptor for intrinsic factor-vitamin B12 complexes. The role of receptor is supported by the presence of 27 CUB domains. Cubulin is located within the epithelium of intestine and kidney. Mutations in CUBN may play a role in autosomal recessive megaloblastic anemia ...
An intrinsic factor is a substance secreted by the parietal cells of the stomach lining for the absorption of vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin). Pernicious anemia results in the case of an autoantibody against the parietal cells and the intrinsic factor ...
Human intrinsic factor (IF) was purified from the recombinant plant Arabidopsis thaliana by affinity chromatography. Cobalamin (Cbl) saturated protein was separated by gel filtration into peaks I and II, which contained according to SDS electrophoresis the 50 kDa full-length protein IF(50) and a mixture of two fragments, respectively. Two components of peak II were identified as the 30 kDa N-terminal peptide IF(30) and the 20 kDa C-terminal glycopeptide IF(20). Measurements of M(w) under the nondenaturing conditions were conducted by static light scattering. They revealed 100 kDa IF dimers in peak I, whereas 50 kDa cleaved monomers were found in peak II. The protein devoid of Cbl dissociated to the elementary units incapable of association in the absence of Cbl. The individual proteolytic fragments bound Cbl at high concentration of the ligand; however, neither IF(30).Cbl nor IF(20).Cbl oligomerized. A mixture of two fragments IF(30) + IF(20) and Cbl produced a firm complex, IF(30+20).Cbl, which ...

To uncover the intrinsic factors that affect the degree of coaxing effect, rotating bending fatigue tests including a process of stepwise stress increases every 107 cycles were carried out at ambient temperature in interstitial free steel and binary Fe-C ferritic alloys. The effects of the work hardening capacity, aging time, stress amplitude increment, and carbon concentration were examined in this simple alloy system. The work hardening capacity was changed by controlling carbon state in a Fe-0.017C (wt%) steel. However, the degree of coaxing effect did not show ...
Cobalamin (Cbl, vitamin B(12)) is a bacterial organic compound and an essential coenzyme in mammals, which take it up from the diet. This occurs by the combined action of the gastric intrinsic factor (IF) and the ileal endocytic cubam receptor formed by the 460-kilodalton (kDa) protein cubilin and the 45-kDa transmembrane protein amnionless. Loss of function of any of these proteins ultimately leads to Cbl deficiency in man. Here we present the crystal structure of the complex between IF-Cbl and the cubilin IF-Cbl-binding-region (CUB(5-8)) determined at 3.3 A resolution. The structure provides insight into how several CUB (for complement C1r/C1s, Uegf, Bmp1) domains collectively function as modular ligand-binding regions, and how two distant CUB domains embrace the Cbl molecule by binding the two IF domains in a Ca(2+)-dependent manner. This dual-point model provides a probable explanation of how Cbl indirectly induces ligand-receptor coupling. Finally, the comparison of Ca(2+)-binding CUB domains and
3 Not making intrinsic factor. Another chemical the stomach produces for digesting vitamin B12 is intrinsic factor. Certain autoimmune disorders may inhibit your bodys ability to absorb vitamin B12 by attacking stomach cells before they have a chance to produce this necessary protein. Regardless of how many vitamin B12 supplements you swallow, the B12 never reaches the small intestines, so it never enters the bloodstream. Pernicious anemia, resulting in diminished red blood cell production, is a common occurrence when intrinsic factor is lacking.. Ive heard of the X Factor and Fear Factor…But whats Intrinsic Factor?. #4 Gastrointestinal conditions and surgeries. The ileum of the small intestine is responsible for digesting vitamin B12. Located at the very bottom of the intestinal tract, the ileum grabs vitamin B12 and dispenses it to your blood supply. But if your ileum is not working properly, then you cannot derive the many benefits of vitamin B12.. Gastrointestinal factors that ...
The reason Vitamin B12 is so effective as a sublingual spray vs pill form is because it doesnt need to go through the stomach and G.I. tract to be absorbed. When B12 is taken in a pill form or in a regular multivitamin, it is not absorbed well in bariatric patients because it is a large molecule; too large for your cells to let it inside. Therefore it requires a protein called the intrinsic factor to help it get inside the bodies cells for use. The intrinsic factor is made in the stomach. After gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy, there is less intrinsic factor made. In addition, for gastric bypass patients, there is now less absorption of nutrients making it harder for B12 and other vitamins to be absorbed. When taken under the tongue, vitamin B12 does not require the intrinsic factor to allow it into the cell and is readily available to the body, along with other vitamins. ...

Vitamin B-12 deficiency anemia (pernicious anemia). Vitamin B-12 deficiency can result from a diet lacking in vitamin B-12, which is found mainly in meat, eggs and milk. Vitamin B-12 deficiency anemia can also occur if your small intestine cant absorb vitamin B-12. This may be due to surgery to your stomach or small intestine (such as gastric bypass surgery), abnormal bacterial growth in your small intestine, or an intestinal disease, such as Crohns disease or celiac disease, that interferes with absorption of the vitamin. Vitamin B-12 deficiency can also be caused by a tapeworm ingested from contaminated fish because the tapeworm saps nutrients from your body. However, a vitamin B-12 deficiency is most often due to a lack of a substance called intrinsic factor.. Intrinsic factor is a protein secreted by the stomach that joins vitamin B-12 in the stomach and escorts it through the small intestine to be absorbed by your bloodstream. Without intrinsic factor, vitamin B-12 cant be absorbed and ...
Acid reflux medications cut down on stomach acids. Thats fine for temporarily easing heartburn and nausea, but as a long-term treatment, it may cause more harm than relief.. In limiting stomach acids, acid reflux meds also limit your ability to make digestive enzymes that are necessary in order to access certain nutrients from the foods you eat.. Intrinsic factor is one such enzyme that rapidly declines with continued prescription of acid reflux medications. Your body needs intrinsic factor in order to digest vitamin B12 from foods you eat daily, such as meat, poultry, fish, eggs, and milk products.. Without intrinsic factor to break down vitamin B12, you eventually develop symptoms of vitamin B12 deficiency, depleted levels of vitamin B12 in the blood supply.. Acid reflux medications such as protein pump inhibitors are among the highest risk factors for vitamin B12 deficiency.. Also read: Vitamin B12 Malabsorption. ...
Vitamin B12 is absorbed both actively and passively in the body. Active absorption is by far the main way in which B12 is taken up and relies on the presence of a protein molecule called intrinsic factor. Intrinsic factor is produced by the parietal cells of the stomach and it is here, in the stomach that the intrinsic factor binds to the B12. A healthy stomach lining is therefore essential for this process. In this bound form, vitamin B12 is protected on its journey through the stomach and duodenum. Finally both the B12 and its transport molecule are absorbed in the small intestine and first becomes available to the body. B12 can be absorbed to a much lesser extent passively across the gut cell membrane by passive diffusion. This inefficient type of absorption may be useful in circumstances where the parietal cells, which are present in the stomach walls, have become damaged. Causes of B12 deficiency. A common reason for an inadequate supply of B12 is an inappropriate diet. On a purely vegan ...

A 71-year-old woman with severe right lower leg pain, edema and erythema was presented to the Emergency Department and was found to have an extensive deep vein thrombosis (DVT) confirmed by ultrasound. She underwent an extensive evaluation due to her prior history of malignancy and new hypercoagulable state, but no evidence of recurrent disease was detected. Further investigation revealed pernicious anemia (PA), confirmed by the presence of a macrocytic anemia (MCV=115.8fL/red cell, Hgb=9.0g/dL), decreased serum B12 levels (56pg/mL), with resultant increased methylmalonic acid (5303nmol/L) and hyperhomocysteinemia (131μmol/L), the presumed etiology of the DVT. The patient also suffered from autoimmune thyroid disease (AITD), and both antithyroglobulin and anti-intrinsic factor antibodies were detected. She responded briskly to anticoagulation with heparin and coumadin and treatment of PA with intramuscular vitamin B12 injections. Our case suggests that a DVT secondary to hyperhomocystenemia may ...

Vitamin B12 is a water-soluble vitamin, which means it gets excreted through our urine. It has many functions in the body that are imperative to our health. It works alongside other vitamins such as folic acid in the production of DNA, red blood cells, and the myelin sheath that surrounds nerves and helps with nerve conduction. Its important for every cell that undergoes a high rate of replication such as our hair, skin and gut. It also plays a major role in our energy metabolism and immune function.. Foods with high quantities of Vitamin B12 are red meat and other animal products such as poultry, eggs, milk and some fortified cereals. However, if your digestive system isnt working optimally, you might not be absorbing B12 from your diet. Parietal cells are cells in your stomach that produce HCL and intrinsic factor. Intrinsic factor is required for the absorption of B12 in the small intestine. Medications used for heartburn will often interfere with the function of these cells or alkalinize ...
The mechanisms regulating the highly ordered neuroarchitecture of the mammalian brain are largely unknown. The present study took advantage of hippocampal pyramidal-like neurons that arose from a common progenitor cell in cell culture (sister neurons) to ascertain the contribution of intrinsic factors to both the generation and degeneration of neuroarchitecture. Sister neurons were similar in overall cell form and dendritic numbers and lengths. Control non-sister neurons that grew in contact did not generate similar morphologies, indicating that the similarity of sister cells did not result from influences of the local microenvironment or cell interactions. These results suggest that intrinsic factors related to mitotic history play a role in the generation of neuroarchitecture. Since particular groups of hippocampal neurons are sensitive to glutamate neurotoxicity in situ and are vulnerable in neurodegenerative disorders, it was of interest to test glutamate sensitivity in the neuronal ...

The stomach is part of your digestive system. It is a hollow organ shaped like a bag that goes from the end of your oesophagus to the start of your small bowel. In the stomach, glands make chemicals, such as enzymes and acids, to help break down food. The stomach lining also makes a type of protein called intrinsic factor. This helps to absorb vitamin B12 into your bloodstream needed by red blood cells and your nervous system. ...

I am glad that you feel better. Your doctor is right in that there are many factors that can contribute to B12 deficiency. The absorption of B12 is amongst the most complex in comparison to other vitamins. It involves the secretion of a molecule called intrinsic factor which then combines with B12 ingested in the diet, it then travels to the terminal ileum where the combination is absorbed. Any excess is stored in the liver ...

Author: Rachel Tan Choon Hui (Lecturer, UCSI University) A wide range of more convenient and value-added food products are produced every day to meet consumer demands. For many foods, the product shelf life is limited by intrinsic or extrinsic factors or the effects of both factors. Intrinsic factors are the properties resulting from the make-up of the final product and include water activity, total acidity, presence of natural microorganisms, availability of oxygen, and product formulation. Extrinsic factors are a result of the environment that the product encounters during the life for instance product packaging, composition of gas atmosphere within packaging, consumer handling, and types of processing. Relative humidity, temperature control and exposure to light during storage or distribution also contribute to extrinsic factors that will affect the shelf life of food products.. Food manufacturers apply various unit operations to improve product quality. Unit operations imply a set of methods ...
Three dynamic models are proposed to study the mechanism of glucose-insulin regulatory system and the possible causes of diabetes mellitus. The progression of diabetes comes along with the apoptosis of pancreatic beta-cells. A dynamical system model is formulated based on physiology and studied by geometric singular perturbation theory. The analytical studies reveal rich analytical features, such as persistence of solutions, Hopf bifurcation and backward bifurcation, while numerical studies successfully fit available longitudinal T2DM data of Pima Indian tribe. These studies together not only validate our model, but also point out key intrinsic factors leading to the development of T2DM. We found that the intermittent rests of beta-cells in insulin secretion are essential for the cells to survive through the observation of the existence of a limit cycle. A delay differential equation model for IVGTT is also studied thoroughly to determine the range of time delay and the globally asymptotic stability by
1. Micro-Organisms are reported to grow between -34 0 c to 100 0 c and each organism exhibit a minimum, optimum and maximum temperature for growth and these are known as cardinal temperature. Most fresh foods, such as fresh meat, vegetables, and fruits, have a. w values that are close to the optimum growth level of most. Some of the most prominent factors are described in the following sections. Bacteria by virtue of mechanical strength of their cell wall are able to … some algae and fungi grow at 55-60 degreeC. 3. Most extreme the microbes need liquid water to grow.(330C). Hence, the knowledge of the factors that favour or inhibit growth of microorganisms is essential to an understanding of the principles of food spoilage or preservation. Intrinsic factors 2.1. Microorganisms are similar to more complex organisms in that they need a variety of materials from their environment to function and accomplish two primary goals--supply enough energy to manage their processes and extract building ...
Mouse biology approximate human system in many respects, but there are invariably inter-species differences that make direct study of humans valuable and necessary to fully understand health and disease. One fundamental question is what intrinsic factors and external influences modulate the robustness of an immune response in humans. We still do not understand why some vaccines are more effective than others, why people respond differently, and how prior antigen experiences and environmental exposures impact the risk for developing autoimmunity. My lab is interested in addressing these questions with a focus on human CD4+ T cells. We showed in an earlier study that a large proportion of human CD4+ T cells can acquire memory characteristics indicative of prior exposure even in the absence of known specific contact with the antigen. This for instance was seen in HIV-reactive T cells, which were found in every healthy blood donor we surveyed; we also detected in these HIV negative individuals a ...
Anyway, I want to do a more formal post on bauers paper but I think it would be alot of work also it is not easy chasing his old references. Suffice to say he brings up alot of interesting points regarding obesity and dismisses the CICO idea, he puts forward the lipophilia hypothesis ( which is what I actually believe is the cause of obesity* ) This lipophilia idea is basically that it is the adipose tissue itself, factors intrinsic to the adipocyte, that determine its drive to store fat and that is the reason people become (maintain ) obese. Due to intrinsic factors, the adipose tissue not only is more willing to suck up and store fat, but it is simultaneously less willing to release that stored fat ...
Adult neurogenesis, a complex process by which stem cells in the hippocampal brain region differentiate and proliferate into new neurons and other resident brain cells, is known to be affected by many intrinsic and extrinsic factors, including diet. Neurogenesis plays a critical role in neural plasticity, brain homeostasis, and maintenance in the central nervous system and is a crucial factor in preserving the cognitive function and repair of damaged brain cells affected by aging and brain disorders. Intrinsic factors such as aging, neuroinflammation, oxidative stress, and brain injury, as well as lifestyle factors such as high-fat and high-sugar diets and alcohol and opioid addiction, negatively affect adult neurogenesis ...
1. The absorption of radioactive cobalamin was measured by a whole-body counting technique in control subjects and in patients with pernicious anaemia. 2. The absorption of cyanocobalamin by patients with pernicious anaemia was decreased by charcoal but not by bile or saliva. 3. The absorption of cyanocobalamin by control subjects was not affected by food but was significantly increased by pentagastrin. With pentagastrin the absorption of cyanocobalamin was significantly greater than that of hydroxocobalamin. The hog intrinsic factor-mediated absorption of cyanocobalamin by patients with pernicious anaemia was significantly depressed by pentagastrin. 4. The effect of increasing the mass of hog intrinsic factor concentrate on the absorption of cyanocobalamin by patients with pernicious anaemia could be described by a function relating the amount absorbed, the mass of intrinsic factor and two constants. The relationship implies that when the mass of intrinsic factor is small the amount of ...
Pernicious anaemia is the most common cause of vitamin B12 deficiency in the UK.. Pernicious anaemia is an autoimmune condition that affects your stomach. An autoimmune condition means your immune system (the bodys natural defence system that protects against illness and infection) attacks your bodys healthy cells.. In your stomach, vitamin B12 is combined with a protein called intrinsic factor. This mix of vitamin B12 and intrinsic factor is then absorbed into the body in part of the gut called the distal ileum.. Pernicious anaemia causes your immune system to attack the cells in your stomach that produce the intrinsic factor, which means your body is unable to absorb vitamin B12.. The exact cause of pernicious anaemia is unknown, but the condition is more common in women around 60 years of age, people with a family history of the condition and those with another autoimmune condition, such as Addisons disease or vitiligo. ...
Anemia is a deficiency in red blood cells. Iron, B12 and folic acid are required to produce red blood cells. Pernicious anemia is a condition in which there is thinning of the lining of the stomach with a subsequent lack of production of a substance called intrinsic factor. Intrinsic factor is produced by the cells of the stomach - it is required for the absorption of B12 from the small intestine. So, sufferers of this condition become vitamin B12 deficient. This situation causes anemia ...
In the study, scientists found dramatic bone loss in mice born to mothers with vitamin B12, noting that low vitamin B12 levels accounted for nearly 70% less bone mass than healthy specimens.. While injecting vitamin B12 didnt improve bone health, researchers did find that vitamin B12 supplements had a therapeutic effect on liver cells. On closer inspection, they noticed that subjects with vitamin B12 deficiency were unable to produce taurine, a natural substance produced in the liver that promotes good bone cell production in preventing osteoporosis.. While the importance of taurine is yet to be fully understood, this research shows that vitamin B12 plays a role in regulating taurine production and that taurine plays an important role in bone formation. -Dr Vidya Velagapudi, Institute for Molecular Medicine Finland.. Previous studies also confirm these findings, such as one that examined children in Turkey born to mothers with vitamin B12 deficiency where taurine deficiency was also ...
Cobalamin (vitamin B12) deficiency is highly prevalent in the US and worldwide. Deficiency is most common in the elderly, with an average prevalence ≈25% over age 60 y. About 40% of older persons with low serum cobalamin have food cobalamin malabsorption (F-CM), in which gastric atrophy/achlorhydria and/or dysfunction is implicated. Because of the prevalence of deficiency in those over age 60 y, it is generally recommended that the elderly consume a higher proportion of their cobalamin from fortified foods than what is recommended for younger people. However there is considerable debate about whether crystalline cobalamin is absorbed as well by the elderly with F-CM as it is by younger people, especially if it is added as a fortificant to food. The data to be collected in this study will provide information useful to on-going deliberations concerning the future fortification of wheat flour with vitamin B12 in the United States ...
It affects males and females equally. The most common form, Adult Onset Pernicious Anemia, affects people after the age of 35 years. Studies suggest that about 1% of the elderly population is affected. Congenital Pernicious Anemia is very rare and has an onset of age between 4 and 28 months. Juvenile Pernicious Anemia has symptoms similar to the adult-onset type, seems to occur between the ages of 4 and 20 years. North America and in Europe among people of Scandinavian, English, or Irish descent has the higher prevalence. It is extremely rare among Asians. Approximately 1.9% of cases may go undiagnosed. Pernicious anemia shows a 10-fold increase in patients with multiple myeloma and a 250-fold increase in adults with immunoglobulin deficiency. ...
Diabetes mellitus is mentioned by Giffin and Bowler1 as being one of the diseases which may be associated with anemia.

Many herbs are described as useful for anemia. However, do we know what KIND of anemia a person has? To deliver the best treatment, we need to know whats causing it. Usually the first thing that comes to mind is an iron deficiency, so we offer iron-building herbs. That wont help if the anemia results from other causes. For example, Pernicious Anemia is related to B12 deficiency. B12 deficiency can result from lack of intrinsic factor, altered ph in the small intestine, failure to absorb it in the illeum. So iron rich herbs arent of much use there.. When you click on Anemia (Pathophysiology) the view changes. Now you see it under a broad heading of Anemia, which is under Blood Disorders.. ...
Some medicines can be given sublingual, which means under the tongue. The reason for this method of administration is that some medications can enter the bloodstream better or faster this way.. For example, B12 is a vitamin that for decades was given as an injection because when someone has Pernicious Anemia they cannot absorb it from the intestines due to a lack of a chemical called intrinsic factor that grabs it and pulls it into the bloodstream. A few years ago it was noted that if given sublingual, it would be adequately absorbed, eliminating the need for an injection.. Another example is when a patient in Hospice care is near death, unable to swallow but having pain, the pain medication can be given as a liquid under the tongue, where it is absorbed quickly and gives rapid pain relief.. A pill designed to be given orally will rarely be able to be administered sublingually. A pharmacist can tell you if a certain medication has a coating and absorption profile that will allow this form of ...

One of the essential vitamins of the human body is vitamin B12. It helps to maintain the overall health of the body. The B-vitamins that our body require are thiamine, niacin, riboflavin, B-6, pantothenic acid, folic acid, biotin, and B12. The sources from which you can get natural vitamins are meat, fish, dairy products, and eggs. The best sources where you are going to find B12 is beef liver, fortified cereals, and clams. Most of the supplements of multivitamin dietary contains vitamin B12.. What is Vitamin B-12?. Cyanocobalamin or vitamin V-12 is a water-soluble B vitamin that assists in keeping the nerves as well as blood cells healthy. Vitamin B-12 additionally adds to the formation of DNA, the hereditary material that can be found in every cell of the body. Absorption of vitamin B-12 takes place in the tummy; it originally passes through gastric acid and then affixes itself to a healthy protein called intrinsic factor and afterward obtains distributed to the entire body. The advised ...
What are the symptoms of Vitamin B-12 deficiency? Anemia, weakness, numbness and tingling, fatigue, dizziness, swelling and irritation of the mouth and tongue, and irritability. Deficiency symptoms often only become evident after many years, once the liver supply becomes exhausted. Symptoms manifest themselves by a disruption in the formation of blood cells. An increase in your homocysteine level as well as a low hemoglobin level can be caused by a vitamin B12 deficiency. Other symptoms may include susceptibility to infections, depression, anxiety as well as weariness and tingling in hands and feet. Interesting note: your liver can store an approximate 12-year supply of this water-soluble vitamin.. Vitamin B12 is found almost exclusively in animal foods (and fortified cereals), so vegans are vulnerable to deficiency. Another critical cause of deficiency is the way in which vitamin B-12 is absorbed…or not. It must be escorted by a protein called intrinsic factor, produced by cells of the ...
B12 deficiency is rare; the most common cause is malabsorption which results from some condition of the stomach or of the small intestine. This type of deficiency usually requires treatment with B12 injections. This type of deficiency has nothing to do with the amount of B12 present in the diet - it arises from inadequate absorption due to a wide range of physiological or medical conditions. Furthermore, B12 absorption tends to decrease with age (7). For example, in the elderly a decline in the production of acid in the stomach may reduce B12 absorption, although this mainly affects B12 absorption from meat. The most common cause of B12 deficiency in the UK is the loss of intrinsic factor; this may result from a genetic predisposition and tends to be age-related (3). B12 deficiency can arise if any of the stages of metabolism are not completed. For example B12 malabsorption may occur if surgery has been performed on the digestive system (such as a gastrectomy or ileal resection) or in the case ...
A deficiency of vitamin B12 can have far reaching, serious complications - including permanent neurological problems. Vitamin B12 is important for proper nerve function and a deficiency can lead not only to loss of energy and fatigue, but nerve damage as well. Symptoms of B12 related nerve damage include tingling in the extremities, difficulty with balance, muscle weakness, and memory loss - among others.. In the initial stages, symptoms of B12 deficiency may be non-specific with fatigue and lack of energy being the only obvious symptom. Over time, vague neurological and gastrointestinal symptoms may develop which gradually become more pronounced. Vitamin B12 deficiency is more commonly seen in older people who sometimes lack the intrinsic factor needed to absorb B12; and in vegans who avoid all meat and dairy products. The liver stores B12 quite efficiently, so it takes several years for people on a vegan diet to develop symptoms of a deficiency. In some cases, B12 deficiency can be associated ...

Several hundred hybridomas were obtained from 1-2-mo-old viable motheaten (mev) mice. Among the Ig-secreting hybridomas tested, greater than 50% (17/33) exhibited reactivity for autoantigens, supporting the idea that the Ly-1 B cells that predominate in mev mice contain frequent precursors of autoantibody-forming cells. Certain of the specificities of these autoantibodies correlated with the documented pathophysiology of mev mice (antithymocyte, -erythrocyte, -skin, -kidney, and -IgG); others were specific for autoantigens not previously observed in motheaten mice but though to be involved in other autoimmune diseases (e.g., intrinsic factor, transferrin, myelin basic protein, and thyroglobulin). About 2 of 3 (11/17) of the self-reactive antibodies exhibited multispecific binding activity for various autoantigens. Analysis by Northern blotting of the V gene families used in mev autoantibodies showed a random usage of VH families and a biased usage of four Vk gene families. Of 16 autoantibodies ...
There are several examples of therapies that have differential effects in specific racially or ethnically distinct subgroups of the US population. For example, persons of African heritage generally have a poorer blood pressure response to angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors and beta-blockers compared to Caucasians, but derive greater benefit in the prevention of heart failure from the combination of isosorbide dinitrate and hydralazine. Indeed, this latter finding led to the first drug approved to treat a disease in patients identified by race. The explanations for racial and ethnic differences in response may be related to genetic factors that determine drug exposure (i.e., differences in absorption, distribution, metabolism, elimination), intrinsic factors (e.g., age, gender, weight, renal and/or hepatic function), extrinsic influences (e.g., diet, concomitant medications and non-traditional therapies, environmental exposure, cultural factors), or a combination therein.

Urticaria is a common skin disorder that is classified according to its chronicity into acute and chronic forms. It may occur spontaneously or on exposure to a physical factor. In the latter case, the urticaria is classified as a physical urticaria . Physical urticaria may be induced by mechanical and applied pressure, exercise, or exposure to cold, heat, sun, water, or vibration. The urticarial lesions are generally thought to be the result of mast cell activation and degranulation, which is supported by the finding of increased levels of serum histamine during some urticarial flares. Passive transfer experiments, whereupon serum from affected donors is transferred into recipient s skin followed by physical stimulation with resultant urticaria at the site of challenge, have been positive in some instances. This suggests the presence of an intrinsic factor in serum, such as IgE, which then mediates activation of tissue mast cells. However, the pathogenesis in general remains unclear and a ...

Inner ear neurons develop from the otic placode and connect hair cells with central neurons in auditory brain stem nuclei. Otic neurogenesis is a developmental process which can be separated into different cellular states that are characterized by a distinct combination of molecular markers. Neurogenesis is highly regulated by a network of extrinsic and intrinsic factors, whose participation in auditory neurogenesis is discussed. Trophic factors include the fibroblast growth factor, neurotrophins and insulin-like peptide families. The expression domains of transcription factor families and their roles in the regulation of intracellular signaling pathways associated with neurogenesis are also discussed. Understanding and defining the key factors and gene networks in the development and function of the inner ear represents an important step towards defeating deafness.
Introduction: As oogenesis is a continuum of months, oocyte quality will be dictated by events that occur during both the growth and maturation stages of development. Morphological variation of the oocyte and embryo result from intrinsic factors such as age and genetic defects or extrinsic factors such as stimulation protocol, culture condition, and nutrition. Controlled ovarian stimulation (COH) interferes with the balance of forces within the ovary and overrides their endogenous pattern of control to optimize normal selection process. Aim: 1. To compare the embryogenesis and outcome of assisted reproductive technology (ART) in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and non-PCOS women. 2. To determine whether embryo quality, implantation rate (IR) and clinical pregnancy rate (CPR) are related to estradiol (E2) or progesterone (P4) levels on the day of human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG). Materials and Methods: This was a retrospective case-control study of 425 women at a Tertiary Care Center from ...
Despite rapidly advancing technology, we still have no way to defeat our own aging. Moreover, nobody can predict when and where senescence starts to be realized in the body. Thus, the aging process is stochastic, and it contrasts with the programmed processes undertaken during early development. On the other hand, the fact that no one in the history of the human being has ever lived beyond 130 years old suggests an absolute (or maximum) life span. It also tells us that there are extrinsic and intrinsic factors acting on senescence. Recent efforts made by researchers from diverse fields have merged into a line of frontier sciences to search for the absolute mechanisms of aging. In the session, Aging Mechanisms, two topics were discussed: first is aging at the organismal level, which is genetically determined, and the second focused on the mechanisms by which cells know when to stop their proliferation.. A family lineage exhibiting progeria (premature aging) indicates that senescence is, at ...
In V. fischeri five genes (LuxCDABE) have been identified as active in the emission of visible light, and two genes (LuxR and LuxI) are involved in regulating the operon. Several external and intrinsic factors appear to induce and inhibit the transcription of this gene set. (Meighen, 1991) [biology of bacterial bioluminescence, Meighen, 1991] - a very complete article on the nature of bioluminescence in this system The lux operon has a known gene sequence of luxCDAB(F)E, lux A and lux B code for the components of luciferase lux CDE codes for a fatty acid reductase complex that makes the fatty acids necessary for the luciferase mechanism: Lux C codes for the enzyme acyl-reductase lux D codes for acyl-transferase lux E makes the proteins needed for the enzyme acyl-protein synthetase. Luciferase produces blue/green light through the oxidation of reduced flavin mononucleotide and a long chain aldehyde by diatomic oxygen. Reaction: FMNH2 + O2 + R-CHO ------, FMN + R-COOH + H2O + Light (Silverman et ...
Ageing is caused by two main factors which are categorized as intrinsic and extrinsic factors. The intrinsic factors include the natural ageing process generally reflected by the genetic background of a person. The extrinsic causes of ageing include environmental factors including sun exposure, air pollution and poor nutrition. Aged skin is usually manifested by wrinkling, pigmentation, patchy hypopigmentation, dehydrated skin etc.. Experts believe that it is possible to reduce the signs of ageing with timely and consistent skin protection with sunscreens, avoiding exposure to intense UV irradiation and by regularly moisturizing the skin. Spice Island introduces a range of time-tested and effective skin care products that help you to maintain youthful skin and restore a natural glow on the skin by reducing the visible signs on ageing. ...

Hello, I am feeling a bit confused about a possible (or possibly not) diagnosis of Pernicious Anemia. I am hoping those of you with experience in having this ruled in or out might share your wisdom. I apologize upfront for this being a long post. A little history... 1. My B12 levels have been low for a while. When
and the not so good part?. Well, about 6 weeks before my Pernicious Anaemia diagnosis, I started experiencing numbness and tingling, like pins and needles but not quite that, in my finger tips. As it was only in my left hand initially I (stupidly!) put this down to excessive guitar playing. Thats really quite terrible terminology because as any musician knows there is, of course, No Such Thing as excessive guitar playing! Pfft!. Anywho… despite finding it really strange I actually just ignored it for a couple of weeks. Until it spread to my other hand. Actually, I would have probably ignored this too if it hadnt been for the horrendous neck and back clicking that Id been experiencing for a number of months as well as the interference with guitar practice. Now, I dont go rushing off to the docs for the slightest ache and pain (childbirth with no pain relief gives me a pretty high threshold for deciding whats painful and whats not!) but when there are multiple symptoms cropping up then ...
