• protein
  • Mammalian nonspecific lipid-transfer protein (nsL-TP) (also known as sterol carrier protein 2) is a protein which seems to exist in two different forms: a 14 Kd protein (SCP-2) and a larger 58 Kd protein (SCP-x). (wikipedia.org)
  • Carnitine has no effect on serum lipids, except a possible lowering of LDL Carnitine has no effect on most parameters in end stage kidney disease, however it possibly has an effect on c-reactive protein. (wikipedia.org)
  • reactions
  • The word metabolism can also refer to the sum of all chemical reactions that occur in living organisms, including digestion and the transport of substances into and between different cells, in which case the set of reactions within the cells is called intermediary metabolism or intermediate metabolism. (wikipedia.org)
  • common
  • All N-linked oligosaccharides originate from a common lipid-linked oligosaccharide (LLO) precursor, synthesized in the ER on a dolichol-phosphate (Dol-P) anchor. (wikipedia.org)
  • Thioesters are more reactive than oxygen esters and are common intermediates in fatty-acid metabolism. (wikipedia.org)
  • energy
  • One role of fatty acids in animal metabolism is energy production, captured in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). (wikipedia.org)
  • Besides degradation of polymers, the lysosome is involved in various cell processes, including secretion, plasma membrane repair, cell signaling, and energy metabolism. (wikipedia.org)
  • human
  • The gut microbiota, which is a population of microorganisms that live in the human digestive system, also has an important part in metabolism and generally has a positive function for its host. (wikipedia.org)
  • drug
  • The urine specimen is collected on a filter paper, which is then air-dried and sent to the laboratory for analysis using a gas chromatography-mass spectrometry instrument ("GC-MS"). GC-MS is a FDA approved method for urinary analyte detection, a gold standard for lipids, drug metabolites and environmental analysis. (wikipedia.org)
  • cells
  • Metabolism (from Greek: μεταβολή metabolē, "change") is the set of life-sustaining chemical transformations within the cells of organisms. (wikipedia.org)
  • development
  • Studies of body composition/ metabolism/ growth, development, behavior, sleep, feeding, hearing and vision will be carried out to document the phenotype and determine if dietary intervention may be helpful. (clinicaltrials.gov)
