The purpose of this study is to test the hypothesis that a low-carbohydrate diet will impact hormones and other factors that regulate appetite and energy balance, and result in lower energ...
This is a 2-year randomized controlled trial to test the effect of dietary carbohydrates, both quality and quantity, on changes in internal body fat mass. Up to 250 women and men with obes...
Preoperative fasting and surgery can cause metabolic stress and insulin resistance. Oral carbohydrate loading has been shown to attenuate the development of insulin resistance in the non-p...
To test the benefits of extra high carbohydrate liquid diet uptake 2 hours before ERCP in improving patients' early recovery.
During a multi−week expedition to the Himalaya, we aim to investigate i) whether dietary supplementation with carbohydrate drinks and gels can improve physical performance; and ii) the u...
Energy drinks are very popular among teenagers but may cause health problems. Energy drink consumption is partly associated with energy drink perception, but little is known about this in the Pacific ...
Hedonic intake of strongly rewarding foods is independent from biological needs and, thus, a common cause of obesity. The effect of potato chips on energy intake in a snacking model could be explained...
As ultra-endurance races continue to rise in popularity, it is critical that athletes understand how to nourish their bodies with proper amounts of calories from carbohydrate, protein, and fat. The im...
The aim of this study was to examine the effects of animal-based protein (whey; WP) compared with plant-based protein (soy; SP) and carbohydrate (CHO) liquid breakfast on appetite, energy metabolism, ...
Multiday racing causes mild left ventricular (LV) dysfunction from day 1 that persists on successive days. We evaluated ingesting casein protein hydrolysate-carbohydrate (PRO) compared with carbohydra...
The characteristic 3-dimensional shape of a carbohydrate.
Proteins which contain carbohydrate groups attached covalently to the polypeptide chain. The protein moiety is the predominant group with the carbohydrate making up only a small percentage of the total weight.
Proteins that share the common characteristic of binding to carbohydrates. Some ANTIBODIES and carbohydrate-metabolizing proteins (ENZYMES) also bind to carbohydrates, however they are not considered lectins. PLANT LECTINS are carbohydrate-binding proteins that have been primarily identified by their hemagglutinating activity (HEMAGGLUTININS). However, a variety of lectins occur in animal species where they serve diverse array of functions through specific carbohydrate recognition.
A class of animal lectins that bind to carbohydrate in a calcium-dependent manner. They share a common carbohydrate-binding domain that is structurally distinct from other classes of lectins.
Dysfunctions of CARBOHYDRATE METABOLISM resulting from inborn genetic mutations that are inherited or acquired in utero.
