A mixed solution sample was prepared by mixing equal volumes of 1.5 wt% alanine solution and 1.5 wt% arginine
is important for the transport, storage and removal of excess nitrogen and ammonia.
content (50.4%) was much higher than that of P1, and similar to that of many vertebrate protamines.
residue seems to be very important at the active site of the enzyme--Arg138.
These results illustrate that L-citrulline is more effective in increasing arginine
Clemens studied the amino acid arginine
himself, researching a supplement to improve vascular flow for patients with hardening of the arteries or atherosclerosis.
Group B (arginine+glutamine): Received 7 days of standard chow food plus arginine
and glutamine rich diet preoperatively followed by segmental right colonic transection and end-to-end anastomosis and received 7 days of standard chow food plus arginine
and glutamine rich diet postoperatively before being sacrificed (n=10).
The contents of this supplement can therefore account for all of this patient's abnormal findings on metabolic testing, the excess arginine
being converted to ornithine by arginase and [beta]-hydroxy-[beta]-methylbutyrate being synonymous with 3-hydroxyisovalerate (3-OH-IVA).
ADI-PEG 20 is designed to deplete the external supply of arginine
, causing arginine-dependent cancer cells to die while leaving the patient's normal cells unharmed.
This phenomenon is described as the "arginine
paradox": extra L-arginine is necessary for NO synthesis even in the presence of intracellular saturating levels of the substrate (21).
In a report, which appeared in Journal of Nutrition (March 2007 issue), the researchers from the United States Department of Agriculture said that eating watermelons increases our body's arginine
levels, an important amino acid.
In this greenhouse study, the effects of 2.5 mM arginine
as foliar spray on growth and some chemical constituents of lupine plants irrigated with three different levels of NaCl (75, 150 and 300 mM NaCl) were evaluated.
