Animal and Plant Proteins and Glucose Metabolism

2019-06-27 04:14:27 | BioPortfolio


The goal of this proposal is to determine the effect of a high protein diet in which the increase in protein intake is derived from different sources (animal vs plant and protein-rich whole foods vs protein isolates) on: i) liver and muscle insulin sensitivity; ii) the metabolic response to a meal, and iii) 24-h plasma concentration profiles of glucose, glucoregulatory hormones, and protein-derived metabolites purported to cause metabolic dysfunction.

Dietary Protein in Proteinuria

The purpose of this study is to investigate if a diet high in plant protein improves kidney function in patients with kidney insufficiency and diabetes and/or hypertension and/or glomerulo...

Mycoprotein, Resistance Training, and Hypertrophy

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...

Phase III Randomized, Placebo-Controlled, Crossover Study of Soy Protein Isolate for Hereditary Hemorrhagic Telangiectasia

OBJECTIVES: I. Evaluate migraine prophylaxis with soy protein isolate in patients with hereditary hemorrhagic telangiectasia. II. Assess whether soy protein isolate reduces the frequenc...

Plant-based Dietary Protein and Resistance-training Adaptations

Dietary protein consumption maximizes the anabolic response during resistance training (RT) by triggering muscle protein synthesis and providing the indispensable amino acids for a net pos...

Vegan or Animal Protein Ingestion on the Recovery of Muscle Function Following Exercise

This study will assess the effect of daily post-exercise vegan (pea) and animal (whey) protein ingestion compared to placebo over 7 days of recovery from strenuous exercise. Muscle strengt...

Plant and Animal Protein Intakes and Risk of Incident Kidney Stones: Results from the Shanghai Men's and Women's Health Studies.

High animal protein intake is a risk factor for nephrolithiasis. Whether plant-based sources of protein associate with kidney stone risk is not well studied. We examined the association of animal and ...

Effects of animal protein supplementation of mothers, preterm infants, and term infants on growth outcomes in childhood: a systematic review and meta-analysis of randomized trials.

Child stunting is a major public health problem, afflicting 155 million people worldwide. Lack of animal-source protein has been identified as a risk, but effects of animal protein supplementation are...

Formation of calcium phosphate nanoparticles mediated by animal protein hydrolysates enhances calcium absorption by murine small intestine ex vivo.

Animal protein intake appears to exert beneficial effects on bone health. Here, animal protein hydrolysates (APHs) originated from casein, whey protein isolate, egg white, myofibrillar protein, sarcop...

Changes in dietary intake of animal and vegetable protein and unhealthy aging.

Animal and vegetable-based proteins differ on their effect on many health outcomes, but their relationship with unhealthy aging is uncertain. Thus, we examined the association between changes in anima...

Low greenhouse gas emissions from oyster aquaculture.

Production of animal protein is associated with high greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Globally, oyster aquaculture is increasing as a way to meet growing demands for protein, yet its associated GHG-emi...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Protein-lipid combinations abundant in brain tissue, but also present in a wide variety of animal and plant tissues. In contrast to lipoproteins, they are insoluble in water, but soluble in a chloroform-methanol mixture. The protein moiety has a high content of hydrophobic amino acids. The associated lipids consist of a mixture of GLYCEROPHOSPHATES; CEREBROSIDES; and SULFOGLYCOSPHINGOLIPIDS; while lipoproteins contain PHOSPHOLIPIDS; CHOLESTEROL; and TRIGLYCERIDES.

A diet that consists mainly of foods with a high content of protein and limited amounts of CARBOHYDRATES.

A diet that includes foods with a high protein content.

The killing of animals for reasons of mercy, to control disease transmission or maintain the health of animal populations, or for experimental purposes (ANIMAL EXPERIMENTATION).

A high-affinity muscarinic antagonist commonly used as a tool in animal and tissue studies.
