Glutamine is an amino acid which is rapidly depleted in critical illness. It is used as energy by cells that line the gut, vital for immune system function, and works as an anti-oxidant. ...
This is a Phase I study. This study is the first time that a new experimental drug called 18FFluoroglutamine, or F-Glutamine, is being used in people. F-Glutamine is a drug designed to be ...
Glutamine levels decrease during severe sepsis; this may be associated with increased mortality. The investigators tested the effects of glutamine supplementation on systemic inflammation ...
Surgery for digestive cancers is managed according to quality standards, validated by the scientific community. Despite the diffusion of these standards through the benchmarks of good prac...
The utilization of glutamine by the bone marrow plasma cells in MGUS and MM will be compared between each other after infusion of 13-carbon labelled glutamine.
Cancer cells have been confirmed diverge significantly from normal cells on the metabolic properties. Energy production in cancer cells is abnormally dependent on the glycolysis pathway and other atyp...
The emerging evidence that demonstrated the extra-demand of glutamine for cancer surviving strongly called for the development of PET tracer for imaging glutamine uptake in cancer. In this work, [F]Gl...
Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) play important roles in tumorigenesis. The variant in MMP-9 -1562 C/T (single nucleotide polymorphisms labeled rs3918242) has been extensively evaluated as predisposin...
Although renal dysfunction is associated with a higher incidence of malignancies, there is no research on the incidence of specific types of digestive cancer in pre-dialytic chronic kidney disease (CK...
Glutamine is a key nutrient required for sustaining cell proliferation, contributing to nucleotide, protein, and lipid synthesis. The mammalian target of rapamycin complex 1 (mTORC1) is a highly conse...
Enzymes that catalyze the joining of glutamine-derived ammonia and another molecule. The linkage is in the form of a carbon-nitrogen bond. EC 6.3.5.
An abnormal passage communicating between any components of the digestive system, or between any part of the digestive system and surrounding organ(s).
An enzyme that catalyzes the synthesis of fructose-6-phosphate plus GLUTAMINE from GLUTAMATE plus glucosamine-6-phosphate.
An enzyme that catalyzes the formation of carbamoyl phosphate from ATP, carbon dioxide, and glutamine. This enzyme is important in the de novo biosynthesis of pyrimidines. EC 220.127.116.11.
Endoscopic examination, therapy or surgery of the digestive tract.
Cancer is not just one disease but many diseases. There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Most cancers are named for the organ or type of cell in which they start - for example, cancer that begins in the colon is called colon cancer; cancer th...
