Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase C677T polymorphism and susceptibility to epilepsy.

Methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) gene C677T polymorphism was reported as risk factor for multiple diseases due to its role in conversion of homocysteine to methionine. The aim of the presen...

Predicting the functional and structural consequences of nsSNPs in human methionine synthase gene using computational tools.

Methionine synthase encoded by the MTR gene is one of the key enzymes involved in the SAM (S- Adenosyl Methionine) cycle catalyzing the conversion of homocysteine to methionine. Methionine plays an im...

CD226 gene polymorphism (rs763361 C>T) is associated with susceptibility to type 1 diabetes mellitus among Egyptian children.

Genetic factors contribute significantly to type 1 diabetes (T1D) etiology. A single nucleotide polymorphism in the CD226 gene (rs763361 C>T) has been associated with T1D susceptibility in European pa...

Polymorphisms in XPC gene and risk for prostate cancer.

Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNP) in repair gene DNA such as XPC gene can reduce the DNA repair capacity (DRC). Reduced DRC induce genetic instability and may increase the susceptibility to prosta...

Association of endothelial nitric oxide synthase gene G894T polymorphism with blood oxygen transport.

Nitric oxide (NO) is involved in formation of oxygen transport function of blood and oxygen transport in tissues by means of interaction with haemoglobin. Endothelial nitric oxide synthase gene G894T ...

Application of Genetic Polymorphisms of DNA Repair in The Prediction of Prostate Cancer Susceptibility and Its Clinical Outcome

Primary: to investigate the effects of DNA repair gene polymorphisms on prostate cancer susceptibility, pathological grade, disease stage and clinical outcome Secondary: to understand the ...

Evaluation of the Effects of Chemotherapy on the Uptake and Retention of Carbon 11 Methionine in Prostate Cancer Patients

The purpose of this study is to better understand a new type of radiology test called positron emission tomography (PET) with carbon 11 methionine to determine which patients have a benefi...

Methionine Tolerance in Healthy Human Adults

Participants will receive four different doses of methionine through four month long interventions with a two week wash-out period in between intervention. The dose will increase with each...

Methionine-Restriction Diet (MRD) in Obese Adults With Metabolic Syndrome

The purpose of this study is to determine if limiting dietary methionine (MET), one of the 10 essential amino acids (which make up proteins), causes weight loss and/or improves glucose met...

Effects of SAMe in Patients With Alcoholic Liver Disease

Extensive research has established the importance of intracellular methionine metabolism in the transfer of one-carbon units, the regulation of DNA metabolism, all methylation reactions, a...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Proteins secreted by the prostate gland. The major secretory proteins from the human prostate gland include PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN, prostate-specific acid phosphatase, prostate-specific membrane antigen, and prostate-specific protein-94.

A preparation of METHIONINE that includes a mixture of D-methionine and L-methionine isomers.

A glycoprotein that is a kallikrein-like serine proteinase and an esterase, produced by epithelial cells of both normal and malignant prostate tissue. It is an important marker for the diagnosis of prostate cancer.

A family of trypsin-like SERINE ENDOPEPTIDASES that are expressed in a variety of cell types including human prostate epithelial cells. They are formed from tissue prokallikrein by action with TRYPSIN. They are highly similar to PROSTATE-SPECIFIC ANTIGEN. EC

A stable synthetic analog of methionine enkephalin (ENKEPHALIN, METHIONINE). Actions are similar to those of methionine enkephalin. Its effects can be reversed by narcotic antagonists such as naloxone.
