Summary of "Lower Circulating Branched-Chain Amino Acid Concentrations Among Vegetarians are Associated with Changes in Gut Microbial Composition and Function."

Vegetarian diets confer health benefits to many cardiometabolic diseases, while whether and how gut microbiota in vegetarians contributes to host metabolism remains unclear. Thus, we aimed to explore the possible links between the gut microbiota and circulating gut microbiota-host co-metabolites among vegetarians and omnivores.

Branched-chain amino acid catabolism of Thermoanaerobacter strain AK85 and the influence of culture conditions on branched-chain alcohol formation.

The bioprocessing of amino acids to branched-chain fatty acids and alcohols is described using Thermoanaerobacter strain AK85. The amino acid utilization profile was evaluated without an electron scav...

Expanding the genetic and phenotypic spectrum of branched-chain amino acid transferase 2 (BCAT2) deficiency.

The first step in branched-chain amino acid (BCAA) catabolism is catalyzed by the two BCAA transferase isoenzymes, cytoplasmic branched-chain amino acid transferase (BCAT) 1 and mitochondrial BCAT2. D...

Effects of branched-chain amino acids on glucose metabolism in obese, prediabetic men and women: a randomized, crossover study.

Recent studies have shown that circulating branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) are elevated in obese, insulin-resistant individuals. However, it is not known if supplementation of additional BCAAs will...

Running title: amino acids and prediabetes risk in blacks and whites.

Circulating branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs, isoleucine, leucine, valine) and aromatic amino acids (AAAs, tyrosine and phenylalanine) predicted type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) risk in a Caucasian po...

Associations of fat and lean body mass with circulating amino acids in older men and women.

Circulating amino acids are potential markers of body composition. Previous studies are mainly limited to middle age and focus on either fat or lean mass, thereby ignoring overall body composition. We...
