Amino acid and biogenic amine concentrations during experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis and the disease-modifying effects of phenelzine treatmentDownload
The project described in this thesis began with a broad analysis of the changes to amino acid and biogenic amine concentrations in the central nervous system (CNS) during experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) in mice, an animal model of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). That study identified...
Molecules of anthocyanins and quinones possess distinctive electrophilic character, which is demonstrated by their facile reactions with nucleophiles such as sulfite, thiols, amines and water. In food systems, one of their likely targets would be nucleophilic centers in the side chains of amino...
Evaluation of the threonine requirement and the bioavailability of threonine in feedstuffs in pregnant sowsDownload
Current recommendations for amino acid intake during pregnancy are for a constant amino acid intake throughout. However, the demand for amino acids changes from maternal tissue growth in early gestation to fetal, conceptus and mammary tissue development in late gestation. The availability of...
Phenelzine is a monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitor that has been used for the treatment of depression and anxiety disorders since the 1960s. In recent years, there has been renewed interest in this drug following reports of its neuroprotective properties in animal models of cerebral ischemia,...
Co-product feedstuffs, if properly characterized nutritionally, are an important component to maintain the feed competitiveness of the pork industry. Hence, nutrient digestibility of distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS) was measured using grower-finisher pigs. In Exp. 1, two methods were...
Simultaneous measurement of protein and energy metabolism and application to determine lysine requirements in sowsDownload
Simultaneous measurements of energy and protein metabolism can provide valuable information about their interactions. Dietary lysine is limiting in typical feedstuffs fed to swine and, therefore, limits protein synthesis. Current recommendations for dietary amino acid and energy intakes may not...
Conformations of Some Amino Acids in Aqueous Solutions by Vibrational Circular Dichroism SpectroscopyDownload
Vibrational circular dichroism (VCD) spectroscopy has been utilized to reveal the detailed conformational distributions of the dominant serine species and leucine species in aqueous solutions under three representative pH conditions, together with vibrational absorption (VA) spectroscopy, density...
