Summary of "Effects of chemical preservation on bulk and amino acid isotope ratios of zooplankton, fish, and squid tissues."

It is imperative to understand how chemical preservation alters tissue isotopic compositions before using historical samples in ecological studies. Specifically, although compound-specific isotope analysis of amino acids (CSIA-AA) is becoming a widely-used tool, there is little information on how preservation techniques affect amino acid δ N values.

Combining bulk and amino acid stable isotope analyses to quantify trophic level and basal resources of detritivores: a case study on earthworms.

Quantification of the bacterial, fungal, and plant energy channels to the nutrition of detritivores is methodologically challenging. This is especially true for earthworms that ingest large amounts of...

Calculation of Single Cell Assimilation Rates From SIP-NanoSIMS-Derived Isotope Ratios: A Comprehensive Approach.

The nanoSIMS-based chemical microscopy has been introduced in biology over a decade ago. The spatial distribution of elements and isotopes analyzed by nanoSIMS can be used to reconstruct images of bio...

Comparison of trophic magnification factors of PCBs and PBDEs in Tokyo Bay based on nitrogen isotope ratios in bulk nitrogen and amino acids.

Trophic positions (TPs) are key parameters for determining trophic magnification factors (TMFs) of environmental pollutants. We used compound-specific nitrogen isotope analysis of amino acids (CSIA-AA...

pH-Dependent X-ray Photoelectron Chemical Shifts and Surface Distribution of Cysteine in Aqueous Solution.

The distribution and protonation states of amino acids in water droplets is of considerable concern in studies on the formation of clouds in the atmosphere as well as in many biological contexts. In t...

Identification and development of amino acid oxidases.

Amino acid oxidases are an important class of enzymes that mostly participate in the oxidation of amino acids using FAD as a cofactor. Many of them function in the catabolism of amino acids with wider...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Hydrogen. The first chemical element in the periodic table. It has the atomic symbol H, atomic number 1, and atomic weight 1. It exists, under normal conditions, as a colorless, odorless, tasteless, diatomic gas. Hydrogen ions are PROTONS. Besides the common H1 isotope, hydrogen exists as the stable isotope DEUTERIUM and the unstable, radioactive isotope TRITIUM.

Techniques for labeling a substance with a stable or radioactive isotope. It is not used for articles involving labeled substances unless the methods of labeling are substantively discussed. Tracers that may be labeled include chemical substances, cells, or microorganisms.

Drugs used for their actions on any aspect of excitatory amino acid neurotransmitter systems. Included are drugs that act on excitatory amino acid receptors, affect the life cycle of excitatory amino acid transmitters, or affect the survival of neurons using excitatory amino acids.

(2S-(2 alpha,3 beta,4 beta))-2-Carboxy-4-(1-methylethenyl)-3-pyrrolidineacetic acid. Ascaricide obtained from the red alga Digenea simplex. It is a potent excitatory amino acid agonist at some types of excitatory amino acid receptors and has been used to discriminate among receptor types. Like many excitatory amino acid agonists it can cause neurotoxicity and has been used experimentally for that purpose.

Cell surface proteins that bind GROWTH HORMONE with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes influencing the behavior of cells. Activation of growth hormone receptors regulates amino acid transport through cell membranes, RNA translation to protein, DNA transcription, and protein and amino acid catabolism in many cell types. Many of these effects are mediated indirectly through stimulation of the release of somatomedins.
