The purpose of this study is to assess the effect of Metabolism-boosting Beverages (MBB) containing green tea extract with a standardized amount of epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) and caff...
This project investigated how glucose metabolism differs due to sleep deprivation for three consecutive nights as compared to sufficient sleep for three nights by examining concentrations ...
The aim of this study is to show whether rosuvastatin influences adenosine metabolism. Therefore we will determine whether rosuvasatin increases dipyridamole-induced vasodilation by increa...
The metabolism of the heart provides the chemical energy needed to fuel ongoing normal heart contraction. Magnetic resonance spectroscopy is a technique used in a MRI scanner that can be ...
It has been recognized lately that sepsis and inflammation has an important impact on lipid metabolism and that the extent of hypocholesterolemia may even be a marker of severity of illnes...
The initial metabolism of fructose is thought to primarily take place in the liver. Using stable isotope labeling combined with tissue and arterio-venous sampling, Jang et al. (2018) demonstrate that...
Metabolism is a key regulator of cancer biology; however, its role in therapeutic resistance has remained largely unresolved. Several new studies disclose that mitochondrial metabolism and oxidative p...
In the adult brain, neural stem cells (NSCs) located in the subventricular zone (SVZ) produce both neuronal and glial cells. Thyroid hormones (THs) regulate adult NSC differentiation towards a neurona...
The "Rosies" of Cell Metabolism persist as a new generation enters the stage. With inspiration from this issue's cover art, we celebrate young and diverse scientists and the mentorship that has guided...
Short non-coding micro-RNAs (miRNAs) are post-transcriptional factors that directly regulate protein expression by degrading or inhibiting target mRNAs; however, the role of miRNAs in obesity and card...
Hereditary disorders of pyruvate metabolism. They are difficult to diagnose and describe because pyruvate is a key intermediate in glycolysis, gluconeogenesis, and the tricarboxylic acid cycle. Some inherited metabolic disorders may alter pyruvate metabolism indirectly. Disorders in pyruvate metabolism appear to lead to deficiencies in neurotransmitter synthesis and, consequently, to nervous system disorders.
Dysfunctions in the metabolism of metals resulting from inborn genetic mutations that are inherited or acquired in utero.
Dysfunctions in the metabolism of PURINES or PYRIMIDINES resulting from inborn genetic mutations that are inherited or acquired in utero.
A physiochemical process which occurs in a wide range of organisms which unlike BASAL METABOLISM is not required for or essential to short-term survivability but to long-term general well-being of the organism.
Defective metabolism leading to fat maldistribution in patients infected with HIV. The etiology appears to be multifactorial and probably involves some combination of infection-induced alterations in metabolism, direct effects of antiretroviral therapy, and patient-related factors.
