• Calcium Pyruvate
  • What Is Calcium Pyruvate? (reference.com)
  • Calcium pyruvate is an intermediate energy produced by the cells during the process of breaking down glucose, according to Examine.com. (reference.com)
  • Calcium pyruvate is a three-carbon energy produced during the cell's process of breaking down simple sugars, or glucose, during the process of creating ATP, the cell's main energy source. (reference.com)
  • Calcium pyruvate is also available as a dietary supplement, with proponents claiming a beneficial effect on a wide range of issues including weight loss, obesity, high cholesterol, cancer, cataracts and an improvement in athletic performance, reports WebMD. (reference.com)
  • For example, there's calcium ascorbate, calcium pyruvate and calcium d-glucarate, but none of these is actually a calcium supplement. (allstarhealth.com)
  • glycolysis
  • View all proteins of this organism that are known to be involved in the subpathway that synthesizes pyruvate from D-glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate , the pathway glycolysis and in Carbohydrate degradation . (uniprot.org)
  • Since in glycolysis a glucose molecule (6 carbons) is split into 2 pyruvates (3 carbons each), this process happens twice for every glucose. (wikipedia.org)
  • As a result, the pyruvate formed from glycolysis cannot be oxidized which leads to hyperglycaemia due to the fact that glucose in the blood cannot be used efficiently. (wikipedia.org)
  • pyruvic
  • Pyruvate supplies the body with pyruvic acid, a natural compound that plays important roles in the manufacture and use of energy. (blakemedicalcenter.com)
  • Pyruvate decarboxylase is a homotetrameric enzyme (EC 4.1.1.1) that catalyses the decarboxylation of pyruvic acid to acetaldehyde and carbon dioxide in the cytoplasm of prokaryotes, and in the cytoplasm and mitochondria of eukaryotes. (wikipedia.org)
  • Pyruvic acid Oxaloacetic acid The reaction it catalyzes is: pyruvate + HCO− 3 + ATP → oxaloacetate + ADP + P It is an important anaplerotic reaction that creates oxaloacetate from pyruvate. (wikipedia.org)
  • Sodium Pyruvate
  • Sodium pyruvate is commonly added to cell culture media as an additional source of energy, but may also have protective effects against hydrogen peroxide. (wikipedia.org)
  • specific pyruvate
  • Three specific pyruvate cycles are generally considered, each named for the principal molecule exported from the mitochondrion: malate, citrate, and iso-citrate.Other variants may exist, such as dissipative or "futile" pyruvate cycles. (wikipedia.org)
  • cofactor
  • After the cofactor TPP reacts with pyruvate, which undergoes decarboxylation, the acetyl portion becomes a hydroxyethyl derivative covalently attached to TPP. (wikidoc.org)
  • Pyruvate Carboxylase Symmetry Comparison Pyruvate carboxylase uses a covalently attached biotin cofactor which is used to catalyze the ATP- dependent carboxylation of pyruvate to oxaloacetate in two steps. (wikipedia.org)
  • Catalytic
  • Further analysis of maize C(4) pyruvate,orthophosphate dikinase phosphorylation by its bifunctional regulatory protein using selective substitutions of the regulatory Thr-456 and catalytic His-458 residues. (ebi.ac.uk)
  • The normal catalytic rate of pyruvate decarboxylase is kcat = 10 s−1. (wikipedia.org)
  • reacts
  • The electrochemical sensor includes a working electrode, a reference electrode, and a reagent localized near the working electrode that selectively reacts with pyruvate. (google.ca)
  • The active sites are inside a cavity in the core of the enzyme where hydrogen bonding can occur and where the pyruvate reacts with TPP. (wikipedia.org)
  • irreversible
  • This final step is highly regulated and deliberately irreversible because pyruvate is a crucial intermediate building block for further metabolic pathways. (wikipedia.org)
