Amino Acid Utilization in Seeds of Loblolly Pine during Germination and Early Seedling Growth: I. Arginine and Arginase ActivityDownload
Abstract: The mobilization and utilization of the major storage proteins in loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) seeds following imbibition were investigated. Most of the seed protein reserves were contained within the megagametophyte. Breakdown of these proteins occurred primarily following radicle...
CIHR Institute of Nutrition, Metabolism and Diabetes (INMD) - Strategic Priorities: Supporting Excellence Through Targeted InitiativesDownload
Dr. Philip Sherman (Scientific Director, CIHR Institute of Nutrition, Metabolism and Diabetes [INMD]) outlined the 2009-2014 Strategic Priorities of INMD. These include Food and Health; Environments, Genes, & Chronic Disease; Obesity and Healthy Body Weight: Seeking Solutions; and Continuum of...
Primary Biliary Cholangitis (PBC) is a chronic liver disease characterized by the immune-mediated destruction of intra-hepatic bile ducts. The autoimmune nature of PBC involves humoral and cell-mediated responses that target endogenous mitochondrial proteins. It is thought that the breakdown of...
Comparative genomics of Lactobacillus reuteri from sourdough reveals adaptation of an intestinal symbiont to food fermentationsDownload
Lactobacillus reuteri is a dominant member of intestinal microbiota of vertebrates, and occurs in food fermentations. The stable presence of L. reuteri in sourdough provides the opportunity to study the adaptation of vertebrate symbionts to an extra-intestinal habitat. This study evaluated this...
Effects of aerobic training on the host systemic milieu in patients with solid tumors: An exploratory correlative studyDownload
Stevens, Robert D., Courneya, Kerry S., Inman, Brant A., Muehlbauer, Michael, Nelson, Erik R., Jasper, Jeff, Field, Catherine J., Jones, Lee W., Glass, Oliver K., Bain, James R., Broadwater, Gloria, Goruk, Susan, Hirschey, Matthew D., Mackey, John R.
background: Few studies have investigated the effects of exercise on modulation of host factors in cancer patients. We investigated the efficacy of chronic aerobic training on multiple host-related effector pathways in patients with solid tumours. patients and methods: Paired peripheral blood...
Multiple sources suggest that insulin resistance and derangements of cardiac metabolism are among the earliest signs of type-2 diabetes detected in the heart. Unfortunately, limited evidence reflects early changes in cardiac mitochondrial metabolism linked to the development of this disease....
Expansion of ruminant-specific microRNAs shapes target gene expression divergence between ruminant and non-ruminant speciesDownload
Background Understanding how species-specific microRNAs (miRNAs) contribute to species-specific phenotypes is a central topic in biology. This study aimed to elucidate the role of ruminant-specific miRNAs in shaping mRNA expression divergence between ruminant and non-ruminant species. ...
Chronic exposure to elevated free fatty acids (lipotoxicity) induces uncoupling protein (UCP2) in the pancreatic β-cell, and therefore a causal link between UCP2 and β-cell defects associated with obesity may exist. Recently, we showed that lipid treatment in vivo and in vitro in UCP2(–/–)...
The insulin receptor (IR) and its signaling appear to be essential for insulin secretion from pancreatic β-cells. However, much less is known about the role of the IR in α-cells. To assess the role of the IR in glucagon and insulin secretion, we engineered adeno-viruses for high efficiency small...
Impaired de novo choline synthesis explains why phosphatidylethanolamine N-methyltransferase-deficient mice are protected from diet-induced obesityDownload
Kuo, Ming-Shang, Dyck, Jason R. B., Sletten, Torunn, Proctor, Spencer D., Jacobs, René L., Lingrell, Susanne, Cao, Guoqing, Peake, David A., Kennedy, Brian P., Zhao, Yang, Vance, Dennis E., Koonen, Debby P. Y., Su, Brian
Phosphatidylcholine (PC) is synthesized from choline via the CDP-choline pathway. Liver cells can also synthesize PC via the sequential methylation of phosphatidylethanolamine, catalyzed by phosphatidylethanolamine N-methyltransferase (PEMT). The current study investigates whether or not hepatic...
