Amino-acid Uptake After Meat Protein Intake

2017-10-11 16:29:03 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of the project is to provide evidence for the use of hydrolysed meat protein (HMP) as a protein supplement for elderly who has difficulty meeting the recommended daily protein intake.

The study will investigate how the meat protein derived amino acids (from either HMP, steak or minced meat) are absorbed and released into the blood circulation of elderly persons. Hereby, the study will explore the the anabolic potential of HMP compared with common meat products.

Influence of Carbohydrate on Amino Acid Absorption From Dietary Protein (ICADP)

10 young males will be recruited to participate in a randomized double blinded crossover study to investigate the influence of concomitant intake of two different types of carbohydrate wit...

Skeletal Muscle Protein Synthetic Response to Amino Acid and Peptides

Skeletal muscle quality is an important determinant of exercise performance and overall health. It is vital for not just movement, but also metabolizing nutrients. Protein from the diet ca...

Effect of Non-essential Amino Acids on Protein Requirements for Endurance Athletes

Protein requirements in individuals who participate in endurance-based exercise training have been suggested to be greater than the current recommended dietary allowance (RDA). The biolog...

Acute Effects of Different Protein Sources and Different Glycemic Index on Energy Balance, Glucose Allostasis and Amino Acid Metabolism: a Randomized, 4-condition, Two Cross-over Study in Adults.

The hypothesis is that seafood proteins given in combination with carbohydrates with low GI are superior to seafood proteins in combination with carbohydrates with high GI and meat in comb...

Calcium Retention as Influenced by Dietary Components That Induce an Acid Load

The impact of protein sources such as beef as part of Western diet on calcium retention remains controversial. We propose to test the hypothesis that the positive effect of high protein i...

Carcass characteristics, physicochemical attributes, and fatty acid and amino acid compositions of meat obtained from different Japanese quail strains.

The objective of the current study was to assess the carcass traits and meat quality in three different Japanese quail strains. A total of 90 1-day-old Japanese quail chicks of three different strains...

Metabolism of the neurotoxic amino acid β-N-methylamino-L-alanine in human cell culture models.

Human dietary exposure to the environmental neurotoxin β-N-methylamino-L-alanine (BMAA) has been implicated in an increased risk of developing sporadic neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and...

The RNA-Binding Protein YBX3 Controls Amino Acid Levels by Regulating SLC mRNA Abundance.

Sufficient amino acid supplies are critical for protein synthesis and, thus, cell growth and proliferation. Specialized transporters mediate amino acid exchange across membranes and their regulation i...

Second derivative analysis of synthesized spectra for resolution and identification of overlapped absorption bands of amino acid residues in proteins: Bromelain and ficin spectra in the 240-320 nm range.

We establish the origin and formation of peaks in UV absorption spectra of proteins by applying the second derivative analysis to (i) spectra of the native protein, (ii) to its model spectra "synthesi...

Liver GCN2 controls hepatic FGF21 secretion and modulates whole-body postprandial oxidation profile under a low-protein diet.

GCN2 is a kinase which detects amino acid deficiency and is involved in the control of protein synthesis and energy metabolism. However, the role of hepatic GCN2 in the metabolic adaptations in respon...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Disorders affecting amino acid metabolism. The majority of these disorders are inherited and present in the neonatal period with metabolic disturbances (e.g., ACIDOSIS) and neurologic manifestations. They are present at birth, although they may not become symptomatic until later in life.

The naturally occurring or experimentally induced replacement of one or more AMINO ACIDS in a protein with another. If a functionally equivalent amino acid is substituted, the protein may retain wild-type activity. Substitution may also diminish, enhance, or eliminate protein function. Experimentally induced substitution is often used to study enzyme activities and binding site properties.

A malonic acid derivative which is a vital intermediate in the metabolism of fat and protein. Abnormalities in methylmalonic acid metabolism lead to methylmalonic aciduria. This metabolic disease is attributed to a block in the enzymatic conversion of methylmalonyl CoA to succinyl CoA.

Compounds and drugs that block or inhibit the enzymatic action of AROMATIC AMINO ACID DECARBOXYLASES. Pharmaceutical agents in this category are used in conjunction with LEVODOPA in order to slow its metabolism.

Vitamin K-dependent calcium-binding protein synthesized by OSTEOBLASTS and found primarily in BONES. Serum osteocalcin measurements provide a noninvasive specific marker of bone metabolism. The protein contains three residues of the amino acid gamma-carboxyglutamic acid (Gla), which, in the presence of CALCIUM, promotes binding to HYDROXYAPATITE and subsequent accumulation in BONE MATRIX.
