• proteins
  • This serine protease, located in the Golgi apparatus, is responsible for activating the sterol regulatory element-binding proteins (SREBP). (wikipedia.org)
  • Plant sterols may also act directly on intestinal cells and affect transporter proteins. (wikipedia.org)
  • Like the ABC exporters, it is possible that the integral membrane proteins of ABC uptake systems also evolved at least 3 times independently, based on their high resolution 3-dimensional structures. (wikipedia.org)
  • Pathogens use siderophores, such as Enterobactin, to scavenge iron that is in complex with high-affinity iron-binding proteins or erythrocytes. (wikipedia.org)
  • genes
  • High level expression of the genes encoding some of these exporters in both prokaryotic and eukaryotic organisms (including human) result in the development of resistance to multiple drugs such as antibiotics and anti-cancer agents. (wikipedia.org)
  • genetic
  • A number of new genetic strains are currently being engineered with the goal of producing varieties high in campesterol and other plant sterols. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, extremely high levels are thought to be indicative of higher risk, as indicated by genetic disorders such as sitosterolemia. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, the authors concluded that excessive long-term consumption of plant sterols might have a deleterious effect on vitamin E. Excessive use of plant sterols has been associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, and genetic conditions that cause extremely elevated levels of some phytosterols, such as sitosterol, are associated with higher risks of cardiovascular disease.

  • microbial
  • Benchmark Study for Improving Microbial Community Profiling Researchers used synthetic and natural microbial lake communities to compare the microbial community profiles generated from high throughput short-read sequencing and high throughput long-read sequencing approaches. (doe.gov)
  • transport
  • ABC uptake porters take up a large variety of nutrients, biosynthetic precursors, trace metals and vitamins, while exporters transport lipids, sterols, drugs, and a large variety of primary and secondary metabolites. (wikipedia.org)
  • common
  • α-Tocopherol is the main source found in supplements and in the European diet, where the main dietary sources are olive and sunflower oils, while γ-tocopherol is the most common form in the American diet due to a higher intake of soybean and corn oil. (wikipedia.org)
  • risk
  • Some studies have suggested that higher levels predict lower cardiac risk. (wikipedia.org)
  • and no signs of small intestine or perianal disease may also be appropriate for total proctocolectomy with ileal pouch anal anastomosis These patients are at higher risk of pouch complications such as fistulization, recurrence of pouch inflammation (pouchitis), and pouch failure.

  • water
  • The company is looking for a toolbox of technologies that can reduce chemical oxygen demand (COD) and high salt concentration in both water treatment and water recycling in order to establish effluent-free chemical sites. (pcci.bg)
  • shown
  • Later a trifluoromethyl ketone (3-octylthio-1,1,1-trifluoro-2-propanone) was shown to be a highly potent, high affinity slow, tight binding inhibitor of the JH esterase of Trichoplusia ni, the same Lepidopteran which was used in the other study in this section. (wikipedia.org)
