Glutamine : biochemistry, physiology, and clinical by Dominique Meynial-Denis

By Dominique Meynial-Denis

Glutamine: Biochemistry, body structure, and scientific Applications describes the various capabilities of glutamine (Gln) in animals and people. Gln is either a nutrient and a signaling molecule, and its services transcend these of an easy metabolic gas or protein precursor. This ebook has amassed jointly, in an independent and important demeanour, the entire to be had proof and examine on Gln together with pathology (neurological ailments, intestinal ailments, serious sickness, and cancer), body structure (successful aging), catabolic states, immunity, and workout. distinct realization is given to the aptitude advantage of Gln in states of insulin resistance and the function of Gln as a "conditionally crucial" amino acid.

The members are both pioneers or specialists within the sector of Gln from everywhere in the globe, together with Australia, Brazil, Canada, Europe, China, and the U.S.. This publication is a worthwhile resource of knowledge for meals scientists, doctors, activities scientists, meals scientists, dietitians, and someone drawn to foodstuff. it's also a useful source for college kids in those fields and may be an immense addition to college libraries.

2009). 3). Skeletal muscle also plays an important role in glutamine metabolism, since quantitatively it is the main tissue for glutamine de novo synthesis, storage, and release. This is not due to a high GS activity per se, but due to the increased availability of the branched-chain amino acids (BCAA), which contribute to glutamine synthesis (Shimomura et al. 2004). Skeletal muscle tissue represents up to 40% of the total body mass (Neu et al. 1996). The BCAA (L-valine, L-leucine, and L-isoleucine) are predominantly metabolized in skeletal muscle tissue, following protein ingestion through the diet (Shimomura et al.
