We aim to examine energy metabolism in patients with pulmonary MAC and clarify the causes of emaciation. We will also investigate the following: the relation between energy metabolism and ...
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 ...
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...
Tumors interact reciprocally with their hosts' physiology and metabolism, making cancer a systemic disease. In this issue of Cell Metabolism, Borniger et al. (2018) demonstrate this phenomenon by lin...
The current obesity epidemic has not only spread from Western to developing economies, but is affecting ever younger individuals. While oftentimes blamed on a slow metabolism or a hereditary component...
Somatostatin analogs (SSAs) effectivelycontrol growth hormone secretion in first and second line treatmentof acromegaly. Their effect onglucose metabolism is still debated.
Bile acids (BAs) facilitate fat absorption and may play a role in glucose and metabolism regulation, stimulating the secretion of gut hormones. The relative importance and mechanisms involved in BA-st...
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.
