The nontoxigenic V. cholerae El Tor strains ferment sorbitol faster than the toxigenic strains, hence fast-fermenting and slow-fermenting strains are defined by sorbitol fermentation test. This test has been used for more than 40 years in cholera surveillance and strain analysis in China. Understanding of the mechanisms of sorbitol metabolism of the toxigenic and nontoxigenic strains may help to explore the genome and metabolism divergence in these strains. Here we used comparative proteomic analysis to find the proteins which may be involved in such metabolic difference. We found the production of formate and lactic acid in the sorbitol fermentation medium of the nontoxigenic strain was earlier than of the toxigenic strain. We compared the protein expression profiles of the toxigenic strain N16961 and nontoxigenic strain JS32 cultured in sorbitol fermentation medium, by using fructose fermentation medium as the control. Seventy-three differential protein spots were found and further identified by MALDI
Sensing the osmolarity of the environment is a critical response for all organisms. Whereas bacteria will migrate away from high osmotic conditions, most eukaryotic cells are not motile and use adaptive metabolic responses for survival. The p38 MAPK pathway is a crucial mediator of survival during cellular stress. We have discovered a novel scaffold protein that binds to actin, the GTPase Rac, and the upstream kinases MEKK3 and MKK3 in the p38 MAPK phospho-relay module. RNA interference (RNAi) demonstrates that MEKK3 and the scaffold protein are required for p38 activation in response to sorbitol-induced hyperosmolarity. FRET identifies a cytoplasmic complex of the MEKK3 scaffold protein that is recruited to dynamic actin structures in response to sorbitol treatment. Through its ability to bind actin, relocalize to Rac-containing membrane ruffles and its obligate requirement for p38 activation in response to sorbitol, we have termed this protein osmosensing scaffold for MEKK3 (OSM). The Rac-OSM-MEKK3
Vascular hyperpermeability and excessive neovascularization are hallmarks of early and late vascular endothelial cell dysfunction induced by diabetes. Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) appears to be an important mediator for these early and late vascular changes. We reported previously, using skin chambers mounted on backs of SD rats, that neutralizing antibodies directed against VEGF blocked vascular permeability and blood flow changes induced by elevated tissue glucose and sorbitol levels in a dosage-dependent manner. We report in this study, using the same skin chamber model and neutralizing antibodies directed against basic fibroblast growth factor (FGF-2), that another member of the heparin-binding growth factor family also mediates glucose- and sorbitol-induced vascular permeability and blood flow increases. In addition, we show that 1) TBC1635, a novel heparin-binding growth factor antagonist, blocks the vascular hyperpermeability and blood flow increases induced by elevated ...

Many solutions are made by diluting concentrated stock solutions. Dilution factors of 1:2, 1:5, 1:10 and 1:100 are common. These dilutions are made by diluting one "part" stock with 1, 4, 9 or 99 "parts" water. For example, you could make 100 ml of a 0.5M sorbitol solution by mixing 10 ml of a 5M stock solution with 90 ml of water. This is a 1:10 dilution of the stock. The dilution factor can be converted to a fraction to determine the solutions final concentration (5M x 1/10 = 0.5M). When the dilution factor is less obvious, the formula C1V1 = C2V2 can be used, where C1 is the starting concentration of the stock solution, C2 is the desired concentration, V1 is the volume of stock youll need (usually this is your unknown) and V2 is the final volume you want to make. For example, to make 1000 ml of a 0.2M Tris from a 1.5M stock you would multiply 1.5M (V1) = 0.2M (1000) to find that you will need 133 ml of the stock. To determine how much water to add you would subtract V2 - V1, in this case ...
Low apparent aldose reductase activity, as measured by NADPH oxidation, can be produced by the spontaneous autoxidation of monosaccharides. NADPH is oxidized to metabolically active NADP+ in a solution of autoxidizing DL-glyceraldehyde at rates of up to 15 X 10(-4) A340/min. The close parallelism between the effects of buffer salt type and concentration, monosaccharide structure and temperature activation on autoxidation and NADPH oxidation imply that autoxidation is a prerequisite for the NADPH oxidation, probably via the hydroperoxy radical. Nucleotide-binding proteins enhanced NADPH oxidation induced by DL-glyceraldehyde, up to 10.6-fold with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase. Glutathione reductase-catalysed NADPH oxidation in the presence of autoxidizing monosaccharide showed many characteristics of the aldose reductase reaction. Aldose reductase inhibitors acted as antioxidants in inhibiting this NADPH oxidation. These results indicate that low apparent aldose reductase activities may be ...

Dried prunes contain approximately 6.1g of dietary fibre per 100g, although prune juice is devoid of fibre as it is filtered before bottling. Prunes are good source of energy in the form of simple sugars, but they do not give rise to a rapid rise in blood sugar concentration, possibly due to their high fibre, fructose, and sorbitol content. Prunes contain large amounts of unique phytonutrients (essential nutrients that come from plants) called neochlorogenic and chlorogenic acids. These substances are classified as phenols, which are chemicals found in nearly all food types and are antioxidants. Oxidation is the interaction between oxygen molecules and any other substance, including living tissue. It is constantly occurring in the cells of our body but oxidation reactions can also cause damage because at a molecular level they can give rise to "free radicals", which are atoms or groups of atoms with an odd number of electrons, which can cause damage to cells that in turn can lead to chronic ...

Ranirestat (also known as AS-3201) is an aldose reductase inhibitor being developed for the treatment of diabetic neuropathy by Dainippon Sumitomo Pharma and PharmaKyorin. It has been granted orphan drug status. The drug is to be used orally. A Canadian Phase III clinical trial has been completed. Phase III trials in Europe and the US started in June 2009 and are expected to complete in April 2013. Ranirestat is aldose reductase inhibitor that acts by reducing sorbitol accumulation in cells. Aldose reductase is an enzyme that catalyzes one of the steps in sorbitol (polyol) pathway which is responsible for formation of fructose from glucose. Aldose reductase activity is increased, parallel to glucose blood levels, in tissues that are not insulin sensitive, including lenses, peripheral nerves and renal glomeruli. Sorbitol does not diffuse through cell membranes easily and therefore accumulates in these tissues, causing osmotic damage, leading to retinopathy and neuropathy. Results from a Canadian ...
Intralipid 20% was recently suggested as a diffusive reference standard for tissue simulating phantoms. In this work, we extend previously obtained results to other fat emulsions, specifically Intralipid 10%, Intralipid 30%, Lipovenoes 10%, Lipovenoes 10% PhosphoLipid Reduced, Lipovenoes 20%, Lipofundin S 10%, and Lipofundin S 20%. Of particular importance for practical applications, our measurements carried out at a wavelength of 751 nm show the following features. First, these products show high stability and small batch-to-batch variations in their diffusive optical properties, similar to Intralipid 20%. Second, the absorption coefficient of Intralipid, Lipovenoes, and Lipofundin S are very similar and their measured values are within the experimental errors; moreover the reduced scattering coefficient of Intralipid 20%, Lipovenoes 20%, and Lipofundin S 20% are similar and their measured values are within 5%. Third, the reduced scattering coefficient of Intralipid 10% and Intralipid 30% can ...

De-epithelialised and de-endothelialised bovine corneal stromas with a hydration of 3.2 equilibrated at 154 mM NaCl and buffered at pH 7.4 had their optical density (400-750 nm) measured. Stromas equilibrated against 10, 20, 30, 50 or 100 mM NaCl made isotonic to 154 mM NaCl by supplementing with sorbitol were progressively more transparent as NaCl increased. Hypertonic equilibration against 300, 600 or 1000 mM NaCl resulted in a progressive loss of transparency compared with 154 mM NaCl. Light scattering as a function of wavelength fitted a l_3 function well for 10, 30, 50, 100 and 154 mM NaCl preparations between 450 and 650 nm, but not at higher wavelengths. However, hypertonic 300, 600 and 1000 mM NaCl preparations showed a l_2 dependence in the 450-750 nm range. Experiments with 154 mM NaCl and either 0 or 300 mM sorbitol suggested that the changes in light scattering in hypertonic preparations are unlikely to be caused by osmotic alterations to the stromal keratocytes. Psychophysical ...

Aldose reductase is an NADPH-dependent oxidoreductase that catalyzes the reduction of a variety of aldehydes and carbonyls, including monosaccharides. It is primarily known for catalyzing the reduction of glucose to sorbitol, the first step in polyol pathway of glucose metabolism. The aldose reductase reaction, in particular the sorbitol produced, is important for the function of various organs in the body. Aldose reductase inhibitors are a class of drugs being studied as a way to prevent eye and nerve damage in people with diabetes.
In enzymology, aldose reductase (or aldehyde reductase) (EC 1.1.1.21) is a cytosolic NADPH-dependent oxidoreductase that catalyzes the reduction of a variety of aldehydes and carbonyls, including monosaccharides. It is primarily known for catalyzing the reduction of glucose to sorbitol, the first step in polyol pathway of glucose metabolism. Aldose reductase catalyzes the NADPH-dependent conversion of glucose to sorbitol, the first step in polyol pathway of glucose metabolism. The second and last step in the pathway is catalyzed by sorbitol dehydrogenase, which catalyzes the NAD-linked oxidation of sorbitol to fructose. Thus, the polyol pathway results in conversion of glucose to fructose with stoichiometric utilization of NADPH and production of NADH. glucose + NADPH + H+ ⇌ {\displaystyle \rightleftharpoons } sorbitol + NADP+ Galactose is also a substrate for the polyol pathway, but the corresponding keto sugar is not produced because sorbitol dehydrogenase is incapable of oxidizing ...

The high sorbitol level from hyperglycemia has an irreversible effect on the peripheral nerves in your body. Think of glucose as sugar in your system. Like sugar, glucose sticks to things, e.g. nerves; it adds layers of coating around the nerves and attaches to proteins that cause their structure to alter and affect nerve function. The result is nerves that do not function properly and cause symptoms from numbness, to tingling to sharp shooting pain, or burning sensation in the feet and legs. This is referred to as diabetic nerve pain, also known as neuropathy. Diabetics who have neuropathy are predisposed to dangerous situations; they lose their protective mechanism to feel sharp objects that they step on, or burn their feet from a heat source without feeling it. Because of this, these seemingly minor injuries become very serious and turn into other conditions like ulceration, infection and possible loss of limb.. ...

The aldose reductase reaction, in particular the sorbitol produced, is important for the function of various organs in the body. For example, it is generally used as the first step in a synthesis of fructose from glucose; the second step is the oxidation of sorbitol to fructose catalyzed by sorbitol dehydrogenase. The main pathway from glucose to fructose (glycolysis) involves phosphorylation of glucose by hexokinase to form glucose 6-phosphate, followed by isomerization to fructose 6-phosphate and hydrolysis of the phosphate, but the sorbitol pathway is useful because it does not require the input of energy in the form of ATP: ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Inhibition of aldehyde reductase by aldose reductase inhibitors. AU - Sato, Sanai. AU - Kador, Peter F.. PY - 1990/9/1. Y1 - 1990/9/1. N2 - A broad group of structurally diverse aldose reductase inhibitors including flavonoids, carboxylic acids and hydantoins, have been examined for their ability to inhibit rat kidney aldehyde reductase (EC 1.1.1.19, EC 1.1.1.20) versus rat lens aldose reductase (EC 1.1.1.21). All aldose reductase. inhibitors examined inhibited aldehyde reductase to some extent both in the reductive reaction as determined with glyceraldehyde as substrate and NADPH as coenzyme, and in the oxidative reaction where l-gulonic acid was oxidized to d-glucuronic acid in the presence of NADP+ Of the inhibitors examined, 2,7-dinuorospirofluorene-9,5′-imidazolidine-2′,4′-dione (A11576) was the most potent inhibitor requiring only concentrations in the 10-8 M range to inhibit 50% of the in vitro activity of rat kidney aldehyde reductase (ic50 value), whereas ...

Phosphoinositide signalling regulates a series of important neuronal processes that are thought to be altered in mood disorders. Furthermore, mood-stabilizing drugs inhibit key enzymes that regulate phosphoinositide production and alter neuronal growth cone morphology in an inositol-reversible manner. Inositol is taken up by neurons from the extracellular fluid, presumably via membrane transporters; it can also be synthesized by the enzyme MIP-synthase (myo-inositol-1-phosphate synthase) and, in addition, it is generated by inositol phospholipid hydrolysis. The neuronal-specific HMIT (H+-myo-inositol transporter) represents a potential regulator of inositol signalling in neurons that warrants further investigation.. ...

Although the enhanced activity of the polyol pathway has been detected in diabetic glomeruli, the intraglomerular localization of this pathway has not yet been well defined. In this study, we attempted to identify aldose reductase, a key enzyme of the polyol pathway, in cultured rat mesangial cells and to characterize the properties of this enzyme using enzymological and immunological methods. When the aldose reductase (DL-glyceraldehyde-reducing) activity was analyzed in mesangial cell extract, the Lineweaver-Burk plot showed concave downward curvature, and the Michaelis constant was 0.83 mM DL-glyceraldehyde, and this activity was noncompetitively inhibited by an aldose reductase inhibitor, ICI-128,436. The enzyme activity was enhanced by the addition of sulfate ion and partially suppressed by barbital. The enzyme cross-reacted with the antisera against rat lens and testis aldose reductases on Ouchterlony plate, and migrated to the region of molecular weight of about 36,500 Da on Western ...
