The aim of this study is to investigate the effects of dietary plant and animal proteins on gut metabolism and markers for colorectal cancer as well as blood protein metabolites and marker...
The purpose of PROGRO is to determine which combinations of milk and plant proteins are optimal to promote growth factors in children
The objective of this study is to compare the effects of adding three plant-based proteins (rice, oats and pea proteins) to a breakfast beverage on the glycemic response, appetite and subs...
Protein is vital for the preservation of health and optimal adaptation to training. However, animal proteins come with economic and environmental issues. The study will investigate the eff...
As part of the Protein for Life project, design rules have been established which outline the processes which need to be considered when designing higher protein products. These design rul...
Dietary changes that occur in response to economic development are collectively known as the . More specifically, diets built around staple cereals and tubers give way to diets with more animal produc...
Controversy exists on whether animal and plant proteins influence obesity differently. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the association between total, animal, and plant protein intake with th...
In animals, heterotrimeric guanine nucleotide-binding proteins (G proteins) transduce signals perceived by numerous G Protein Coupled Receptors (GPCRs). However, no canonical GPCRs with Guanine Nucleo...
Considering the crude methods used to control phytoplasma diseases, a deeper knowledge on the defence mechanisms recruited by the plant to face phytoplasma invasion is required. Recently, we demonstra...
A transition to a more sustainable diet likely requires substituting proteins of animal origin with alternatives like plant-based foods. Yet consumers are not regularly consuming alternative protein p...
Adaptive antiviral defense mechanisms, in archaea and bacteria, based on DNA repeat arrays called CLUSTERED REGULARLY INTERSPACED SHORT PALINDROMIC REPEATS (CRISPR elements) that function in conjunction with CRISPR-ASSOCIATED PROTEINS (Cas proteins). Several types have been distinguished, including Type I, Type II, and Type III, based on signature motifs of CRISPR-ASSOCIATED PROTEINS.
A subtype of bone morphogenetic protein receptors with high affinity for BONE MORPHOGENETIC PROTEINS. They can interact with and undergo PHOSPHORYLATION by BONE MORPHOGENETIC PROTEIN RECEPTORS, TYPE II. They signal primarily through RECEPTOR-REGULATED SMAD PROTEINS.
The sequence of transfers of matter and energy from organism to organism in the form of FOOD. Food chains intertwine locally into a food web because most organisms consume more than one type of animal or plant. PLANTS, which convert SOLAR ENERGY to food by PHOTOSYNTHESIS, are the primary food source. In a predator chain, a plant-eating animal is eaten by a larger animal. In a parasite chain, a smaller organism consumes part of a larger host and may itself be parasitized by smaller organisms. In a saprophytic chain, microorganisms live on dead organic matter.
Abnormal isoform of prion proteins (PRIONS) resulting from a posttranslational modification of the cellular prion protein (PRPC PROTEINS). PrPSc are disease-specific proteins seen in certain human and animal neurodegenerative diseases (PRION DISEASES).
A subtype of bone morphogenetic protein receptors with low affinity for BONE MORPHOGENETIC PROTEINS. They are constitutively active PROTEIN-SERINE-THREONINE KINASES that can interact with and phosphorylate TYPE I BONE MORPHOGENETIC PROTEIN RECEPTORS.
