  • example
  • The organic ligands included are sometimes referred to as "struts", one example being 1,4-benzenedicarboxylic acid (BDC). (wikipedia.org)
  • methionine
  • Malonyl-CoA decarboxylase is firstly processed as a pro-protein or proenzyme, in which the transit peptide, whose role is to transport the enzyme to a specific organelle (in this case the mitochondria), comprises the first 39 amino acids (beginning with a methionine and ending with an alanine). (wikipedia.org)
  • phosphate
  • The phosphate is then removed by phosphatidic acid phosphatase (PAP1), to generate 1,2-diacylglycerol. (hmdb.ca)
  • This is most likely modulated by a histidine (H138) residue that first deprotonates the carboxy side, and then, as an acid, protonates the phosphate part. (wikipedia.org)
  • enzyme
  • In order to turn into an active enzyme, MCD undergoes 8 post-translational modifications (PTM) in different amino acids. (wikipedia.org)
  • The enzyme is 750 amino acids long, with the a metal ligand binding region to bind to the Cobalt region of adenosylcobalamin. (wikipedia.org)
  • The overall enzyme exists as a dimer-of-dimers: two identical subunits closely interact to form a dimer through salt bridges between arginine (R438 - exact positions may vary depending on the origin of the gene) and glutamic acid (E433) residues. (wikipedia.org)
  • metabolic
  • Applications investigating the modulating effects of dietary fatty acids, obesity, diabetes, insulin resistance, and components of the metabolic syndrome on alcoholic and nonalcoholic fatty liver are also encouraged. (nih.gov)
  • cellular
  • Specialized pro-resolving lipid mediators (SPMs) derived from omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids orchestrate key cellular processes driving resolution and a return to homeostasis. (jci.org)
  • The three main purposes of metabolism are the conversion of food/fuel to energy to run cellular processes, the conversion of food/fuel to building blocks for proteins, lipids, nucleic acids, and some carbohydrates, and the elimination of nitrogenous wastes. (wikipedia.org)
  • consists
  • TG(16:1(9Z)/18:1(9Z)/20:4(5Z,8Z,11Z,14Z))[iso in particular, consists of one chain of palmitoleic acid at the C-1 position, one chain of oleic acid at the C-2 position and one chain of arachidonic acid at the C-3 position. (hmdb.ca)
  • fats
  • Most of the structures that make up animals, plants and microbes are made from three basic classes of molecule: amino acids, carbohydrates and lipids (often called fats). (wikipedia.org)
  • synthesize
  • Ohfune and Tomita, who wanted to investigate its absolute stereochemistry, were the first and only to synthesize domoic acid in 1982. (wikipedia.org)
  • example
  • For example, poly bis (4 aminophenyl) ether pyromellitimide prepared by this invention may not be soluble to the extent 'of 0.5% in concentrated sulfuric acid, yet it displays an inherent viscosity greater than 0.1 when measured as a 0.5% solution in the monohydrate of sym-dichloroetetrafluoroacetone or in fuming nitric acid. (google.com)
  • processes
  • Domoic acid is a neurotoxin that inhibits neurochemical processes, causing short-term memory loss, brain damage, and, in severe cases, death in humans. (wikipedia.org)
  • body
  • With rest and time, our body will eliminate the lactic acid and our muscles will no longer be sore. (wyzant.com)
  • long
  • This is due to the fact that the beta oxidation of long chain fatty acids with an odd number of carbons produces propionyl-CoA. (wikipedia.org)
  • found
  • It has been found that if the polyimide is not soluble in concentrated sulfuric acid to the extent of 0.5%, then its inherent viscosity in a suitable solvent can usually be considered to be greater than0.l. (google.com)
  • New research has found that domoic acid is a heat-resistant and very stable toxin, which can damage kidneys at concentrations that are 100 times lower than what causes neurological effects. (wikipedia.org)
  • chemical
  • In any event, the conversion of the polyamide-acid to the polyimide may be accomplished by a heat treatment or any of the chemical treatments or combinations of treatments as described hereinafter. (google.com)
  • form
  • It is also preferred to form a shaped structure of the polyamide-acid composition prior to converting the polyamide-acid to the polyimide. (google.com)
  • influence
  • In 1961, seabirds attacked the Capitola area in California, and though it was never confirmed, they were thought to be under the influence of domoic acid. (wikipedia.org)
  • action
  • The fatty acids that are incorporated into TAGs are activated to acyl-CoAs through the action of acyl-CoA synthetases. (hmdb.ca)
  • Domoic acid has a very strong affinity for these receptors, which results in excitotoxicity initiated by an integrative action on ionotropic glutamate receptors at both sides of the synapse blocking the channel from rapid desensitization. (wikipedia.org)
  • place
  • An incident in which domoic acid may have been involved took place on June 22, 2006, when a California brown pelican flew through the windshield of a car on the Pacific Coast Highway. (wikipedia.org)
