  • Tryptophan Biochemistry: Structural, Nutritional, Metabolic, and Medical Aspects in Humans

    Palego, Lionella; Betti, Laura; Rossi, Alessandra; Giannaccini, Gino (2016)
    L-Tryptophan is the unique protein amino acid (AA) bearing an indole ring: its biotransformation in living organisms contributes either to keeping this chemical group in cells and tissues or to breaking it, by generating in both cases a variety of bioactive molecules. Investigations on the biology of Trp highlight the pleiotropic effects of its small derivatives on homeostasis processes. In addition to protein turn-over, in humans the pathways of Trp indole derivatives cover the synthesis of ...

    Potential Anticarcinogenic Peptides from Bovine Milk

    Giacomo Pepe; Gian Carlo Tenore; Raffaella Mastrocinque; Paola Stusio; Pietro Campiglia (2013)
    Bovine milk possesses a protein system constituted by two major families of proteins: caseins (insoluble) and whey proteins (soluble). Caseins ( ? S1, ? S2, ? , and ? ) are the predominant phosphoproteins in the milk of ruminants, accounting for about 80% of total protein, while the whey proteins, representing approximately 20% of milk protein fraction, include ? -lactoglobulin, ? -lactalbumin, immunoglobulins, bovine serum albumin, bovine lactoferrin, and lactoperoxidase, together with other...

    Interaction of Ingested Leucine with Glycine on Insulin and Glucose Concentrations

    Iverson, Jennifer F.; Gannon, Mary C.; Nuttall, Frank Q. (2014)
    The majority of individual amino acids increase insulin and attenuate the plasma glucose response when ingested with glucose. Objective. To determine whether ingestion of two amino acids simultaneously, with glucose, would result in an additive effect. Leucine (Leu) and glycine (Gly) were chosen because they were two of the most potent glucose-lowering amino acids when given individually. Materials and Methods. Nine subjects received test items on four separate days. The first was a water con...

    Glutathione Homeostasis and Functions: Potential Targets for Medical Interventions

    Volodymyr I. Lushchak (2012)
    Glutathione (GSH) is a tripeptide, which has many biological roles including protection against reactive oxygen and nitrogen species. The primary goal of this paper is to characterize the principal mechanisms of the protective role of GSH against reactive species and electrophiles. The ancillary goals are to provide up-to-date knowledge of GSH biosynthesis, hydrolysis, and utilization; intracellular compartmentalization and interorgan transfer; elimination of endogenously produced toxicants; ...

    Cancer Treatment Using Peptides: Current Therapies and Future Prospects

    Thundimadathil, Jyothi (2012)
    This paper discusses the role of peptides in cancer therapy with special emphasis on peptide drugs which are already approved and those in clinical trials. The potential of peptides in cancer treatment is evident from a variety of different strategies that are available to address the progression of tumor growth and propagation of the disease. Use of peptides that can directly target cancer cells without affecting normal cells (targeted therapy) is evolving as an alternate strategy to convent...
