Transfer of NADH from glycolysis into the mitochondria

Malate Aspartate Glycolysis

The mitochondrial inner membrane is impermeable to NAD, and therefore the NADH produced in the cytosol in glycolysis cannot enter the mitochondria for reoxidation. In order to transfer the reducing equivalents from cytosolic NADH into the mitochondria, two substrate shuttles are used The malate aspartate shuttle Figure 5.11 involves reduction of oxaloacetate in the cytosol to malate with the oxidation of cytosolic NADH to NAD . Malate enters the mitochondria and is reduced back to oxaloacetate,...

Hormonal control in the fed and fasting states

Hydrolysis Triacylglycerol

In the fed state see Figure 5.6 , when there is an ample supply of metabolic fuels from the gut, the main processes occurring are synthesis of reserves of triacylglycerol and glycogen glucose is in plentiful supply and is the main fuel for most tissues. By contrast, in the fasting state see Figure 5.7 the reserves of triacylglycerol and glycogen are mobilized for use, and glucose, which is now scarce, must be spared for use by the brain and red blood cells. As discussed in section 5.3, the...

The rhizosphere surrounds each root

Function The Casparian Strip Root

The narrow zone of soil surrounding a root is called the rhizosphere fig. 7.13 . The rhizosphere extends up to 5 millimeters from the root's surface and is a complex and ever-changing environment. Growth and metabolism of roots modify the rhizosphere in several ways. First, roots force their way through crevices and between soil particles. Later, when the roots die and decay, they leave open channels that help aerate the soil this aeration may improve the root growth of other plants. Roots also...

Patterns of food allergic responses Quickonset symptoms

Ige Mediated Responses

These often follow the ingestion of a single food, such as egg, peanut or sesame. Within minutes the sufferer may notice tingling of the tongue, and there may be the rapid development of skin rash, urticaria or wheezing. One localized variant, the oral allergy syndrome, is often seen in older pollen-sensitized individuals and is characterized by lip tingling and mouth swelling after ingestion of certain fruits and vegetables.24 More serious reactions, however, can occur at any age, and antigens...

Potential subtypes of cyclic vomiting syndrome and common associations

The vast majority (87 ) of patients with CVS have a migraine association either based most commonly on a family history of migraine or, less frequently, on the subsequent development of migraines in the affected child. Because these associated symptoms occurred less than half the time, we did not use headache, photophobia and phonophobia as specific criteria to determine who had migraine-associated CVS. When we examined the remainder with non-migraine-associated CVS (13 ), they appeared to have...

Lesions Lacunae And Crypts

Iris Closed Lesion

These are the iris signs that lower constitutional quality and represent acquired or inherited weaknesses in the body. They are recognized by their shapes. They vary in size and in degrees of darkness. An open lesion is one that has one end opened up, while the other end is usually closed. Being open indicates to the lesion, lacunae, crypt iridologist that this tissue is active in that nutrients, circulation and metabolic functions are flowing through the tissue, although at a reduced rate. THE...

The pentose phosphate pathway in red blood cells favism

Pathway Production Red Blood Cells

The pentose phosphate pathway is also important in the red blood cell, where NADPH is required to maintain an adequate pool of reduced glutathione, which is used to remove hydrogen peroxide. As shown in Figure 5.15, the tripeptide glutathione y-glutamyl-cysteinyl-glycine is the reducing agent for glutathione peroxidase, which reduces H2O2 to H2O and O2. Glutathione peroxidase is a selenium-dependent enzyme section 11.15.2.5 , and this explains the antioxidant action of selenium. Oxidized...

The Digestive System Stomach Intestines

Iridology Underacid Stomach Iris

The digestive system is the hub of the body. Nutrients that sustain body tissues are obtained from it. Notice that the stomach is located in the middle of the iris immediately surrounding the pupil, in zone 1. Coming out toward the nerve wreath, you will see a round halo or circle that is light in coloration. This indicates an acidic condition in the stomach. There is an imbalance in the hydrochloric acid and digestive enzyme level. Protein digestion is being impaired. SMALL, TIGHT PUPIL...

Oxidation of acetyl CoA THE citric acid CYCLE

Citric Acid Cycle With Compounds

The acetate of acetyl CoA undergoes a stepwise oxidation to carbon dioxide and water in a cyclic pathway, the citric acid cycle, shown in Figures 5.17 and 5.18. This pathway is sometimes known as the Krebs cycle, after its discoverer, Sir Hans Krebs. For each mole of acetyl CoA oxidized in this pathway, there is a yield of Figure 5.17 An overview of the citric acid cycle also known as the Krebs cycle or tricarboxylic acid cycle . Figure 5.17 An overview of the citric acid cycle also known as...

Renal Dietitians Dietetic Practice Group

In 1978, the Renal Practice Group RPG of the ADA was formed. This organization deals with the professional concerns of the renal dietitian, including salary surveys, employment, legislation, and patient education. The RPG publishes a quarterly newsletter that features articles on renal nutrition and patient education. The need for a uniform renal diet that could be used across the United States was identified as early as 1978, when the RPG was first formed. The project was not initiated at that...

Are We Born with All of the Fat Cells We Will Ever Have

We are not born with a full complement of fat cells as some scientists once thought. The number of fat cells in the body increases at various stages throughout growth, but by the time adulthood is reached the total number of these cells can become fixed. This means that if our body fat mass does not change, we probably would not produce new fat cells as adults. However, if we consume excessive calories, the number of fat cells can increase. In adipose tissue there is a small number of so-called...

Tissue Specific Energy Metabolism

Energy Metabolism During Fasting

The brain depends almost exclusively on glucose for energy. Since it cannot store compounds for oxidation, it has to receive a constant supply of glucose. To make this possible, a minimum blood glucose level has to be maintained at all times A . The brain uses about 120 g of glucose per day during phases of prolonged fasting or starvation it can use ketone bodies instead, but only to a limited extent. Muscle tissue, on the contrary, possesses large glycogen stores. When broken down, it is...

Structure and Properties of the Macronutrients

Water H20 Plants

Nutrition may be defined simply as the utilization of foods by living organisms for normal growth, reproduction, and maintenance of health. The compounds that are classed as nutrients include water, carbohydrates, proteins or amino acids, lipids, vitamins, and minerals. These nutrients make up living tissues whether they be plant, animal, or microbial tissues. Thus, these nutrients are obtained by intake of food and are then used by the human body to build and maintain its own tissues. The...

Metabolism Distribution and Regulation

Triglyceride Metabolism

Once absorbed, carbohydrates are carried to the liver A . There, fructose and galactose are converted into glucose. Some of the absorbed glucose reaches the peripheral bloodstream, where it is recognized by pancreatic receptors. This triggers increased insulin secretion by the p-cells and reduces glucagon secretion. These hormonal changes provide a signal which affects the entire metabolism absorption of glucose into the liver, muscle cells, and fatty tissues is increased, and its conversion...

Metabolism Glucose Storage

Metabolism Glucose Muscles

The glucose stored in the liver as glyco-gen can be considered a reservoir for buffering blood glucose levels A . Since glucose is the essential energy source of the CNS, blood glucose levels are regulated within a tight margin through the interplay of glucagon and insulin. Muscle glycogen is not directly integrated into the blood glucose regulation system. Since muscles lack glucose-6-phosphatase, their cells are unable to convert glucose-6-phosphate formed during glycogen breakdown into...

Fatty Acids Metabolism

Palmitate Metabolism

Triglyceride triacylglycerol hydrolysis in adipocytes is subject to complex hormonal regulation A . Besides by glu-cagon, growth hormones, and others, hormone-sensitive lipase is activated, in particular, by catecholamines released during times of heightened energy need. Hormone-sensitive lipase is activated via a p-receptor and subsequent formation of the second messenger cAMP in the adenylate cyclase system. Hormone-sensitive lipase releases free fatty acids FFA from tri- and di-glycerides...

Essential elements are required by plants for normal growth and reproduction

Mineral Nutrition Plants Experiment

More than 60 elements have been found in plant tissues. These elements range from those as common as carbon and hydrogen to those as exotic as platinum, uranium, and gold. Are all of these elements essential for growth If so, what functions do they perform Answering these questions has proven to be a formidable task. We must first define what we mean by essential. An element is essential if 1 it is required for normal growth and reproduction, 2 no other element can replace it and correct the...

Hirschsprung Disease Rectal Manometry

For the diagnosis of Hirschsprung's disease, the subject's history is very important. The crucial elements to obtain are the age of the appearance of symptoms whether the passage of meconium has been normal or delayed and whether the child presented with episodes of functional intestinal obstruction. In addition, a functional idiopathic megacolon must be ruled out. A clinical comparison between functional and congenital megacolon is shown in Table 17.1. When the history early onset of...

Basic Iris Topography

Autonomic Nerve Wreath

It's helpful for a newcomer to iridology to be able to recognize the major iris features. Iridology involves study of a very intricate tissue structure. There are over 90 known specific areas mapped on each iris, and they are both different. The right iris responds to the right side of the body and the left responds to the left side. Therefore, there are over 180 divisions to gather information from within the two irides, each smaller than a dime. Starting from the pupil outward, the first...

Fructose and Galactose

Fructose Galactose Metabolism

Fructose, which has no influence on the release of insulin, is metabolized in the liver A . Which metabolic pathway is used depends on the presence or absence of other monosaccharides. In case of simultaneous supply of glucose and fructose, fructose is transformed into intermediate products of the glycolytic pathway. Since only one phosphorylated product results from the splitting of fructose-1-phosphate, the remaining glyceraldehyde has to be processed via a different pathway first. Like...

Iris Color And Variations

Iridology Chemical Deposit

There are only two eye colors in the world today blue and brown. The structure of the stroma is different in the two. The blue eye is less dense, has its trab cula in the open and reveals itself more clearly. Blue eyes are much easier to study. The brown eye is dense, not revealing the trab cula and is more difficult to analyze. There are variations between the true blue and true brown eyes. Sometimes people born of blue- and brown-eyed parents have a mixture of both. Genetically, blue eyes are...
