Blackwell Release Date: Salway Download Here http: Metabolism at a Glance is a complete review course of metabolism in health and disease and offers a unique approach to the study of this difficult discipline. Metabolism is a complicated subject involving complex molecules and interrelated pathways.
These metabolic pathways are usually taught separately with the result that the student develops a detailed but compartmentalised approach to metabolism and frequently fails to see the overall picture and its physiological significance. Using the at a Glance format, the book takes the student through a complete course in intermediary metabolism in an integrated manner.
The same chart is repeated throughout the book with the individual pathway under study highlighted. The book is an ideal text for introductory biochemistry courses and has established itself as an enormously popular book amongst lecturers and students alike. This third edition is fully updated and includes five new chapters to mirror those topics currently taught at undergraduate level: Metabolic Channelling 2.
Glucose homeostasis and Reye's Disease 3.
Regarding the biological importance of Se, it is primary thought to be related to its presence in selenoproteins, including glutathione peroxidase and thioredoxin reductase, both of which incorporate a selenocysteine Sec in their catalytic centers. Epidemiologic studies have suggested that Se deficiency causes lung 4 , bladder 5 , and prostate cancers 6, 7.
In addition, Se and selenoproteins have been reported to participate in immune function 8, 9 and sperm maturation Humans and animals take up Se from plants, which absorbed it from the soil to produce organic Se compounds.
Therefore, Se deficiency can occur in regions with relatively low Se levels in soil. At present, Se-enriched yeast is widely used as a nutritional supplement.
The advantages of using yeast for Se supplementation include the production of Se-enriched yeast at an industrial scale, which is more convenient than the use of other organisms such as Se-accumulating plants. In addition, Saccharomyces cerevisiae cultured with inorganic Se compounds, such as selenite SeO or selenate SeO , produces organic Se compounds that are much less toxic and more bioavailable than the original salts Despite great advances in prevention and therapy, existing treatments for this disorder have serious side effects.
Plants used in traditional medicine represent a valuable source in the search for new medicinal compounds. Hamelia patens Jacq. The present study on H. After 10 administrations 20 days , each extract had lowered blood glucose to a normal level.
The extracts produced effects similar to metformin. Of the five compounds identified by chromatographic analysis of the extracts, epicatechin and chlorogenic acid demonstrated antihyperglycemic effect.
The antioxidant activity of the extracts was evidenced by their IC50 values Thus, considering that the antihyperglycemic and antioxidant effects of metformin and extracts from H.
Metabolic Interaction in Infection
Introduction Diabetes mellitus DM , characterized by hyperglycemia and related to metabolic disorder [ 1 — 3 ], is a worldwide health problem and still on the increase. However, the secondary effects of these treatments e. At least 1, species of medicinal plants are used in traditional medicine for their antidiabetic attributes. A small proportion plants of such plants have been studied to explore their effect and of these; only have had their action mechanism analyzed [ 9 — 11 ].
Metabolism at a Glance, 4th Edition
It has been reported that in Mexico more than plant species are employed for DM2 treatment [ 12 ]. Endemic to Mexico, it is used in traditional medicine for headaches, diarrhea, stomach ache, wound healing and diabetes, among other applications.
Biological studies have demonstrated radical scavenging [ 13 , 14 ] as well as anti-inflammatory [ 15 ], antibacterial [ 16 ], and cytotoxic [ 17 ] activity by H.
However, some of these compounds have not been shown to have biological effects. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the antihyperglycemic effect of methanolic extracts of H.
The extracts were subjected to quantitative phytochemical and chromatographic analysis, as well as examination of their antioxidant activity.
Materials and Methods 2. Reagents All reagents were downloadd and used without further purification. Aluminum chloride was obtained from Honeywell Fluka and gallic acid from Fermont. Plant Material H. The aerial parts were dried in the shade at room temperature and ground to a fine powder for extraction. Extract Preparation One kg of plant material leaves was subjected to a fractional extraction, using solvents of increasing polarity hexane, dichloromethane, and methanol.
Extraction from another kg of plant material was made separately, using methanol. We worked with methanolic extracts; specifically, the fractional methanol extract FME and the crude methanol extract CME.
Total Phenolic Content Total content of phenols was measured using the Folin-Ciocalteu method [ 23 ], with certain modifications. The reaction mixture was prepared with 0.
Subsequently, 0. Absorbance was measured at nm. The standard curve was constructed based on various concentrations of gallic acid. Total Flavonoid Content Total flavonoid content was evaluated using an aluminum chloride method with slight modifications [ 23 ].
In brief, the reaction mixture consisted of 0. This was left to stand for 30 min at room temperature and the reading was taken at nm. Concentrations of 4, 0. Antioxidant activity was expressed as mean effective concentration EC The mice were housed under standard conditions and given a standard pellet feed and water ad libitum.
The control group received only water. Mice were observed for symptoms and weight variation at postadministration intervals of 1, 3, and 4 h and then twice per day for the subsequent 14 days. They were provided with standard feed and water ad libitum, throughout the study. Antihyperglycemic Activity of H. Rats were divided into eleven groups each consisting of ten animals. After the 15th administration, animals were euthanized and a blood sample was obtained for biochemical analysis [ 28 ].
Statistical differences were evaluated using the Tukey test with the SAS version 9 program.
For the evaluation of antihyperglycemic activity and biochemical parameters, the comparison of multiple variance was analyzed by applying the Holm-Bonferroni method, utilizing GraphPad Prism software version 5. Results and Discussion CME yield was 8. The latter extract displayed the highest content of these metabolites. We relate this to the way extracts were obtained.
These results concur with those reported by Flores-Sanchez in [ 29 ]. Table 1: Metabolic content of the methanolic extracts of H. Pathogenesis of DM has been shown to relate to the generation of free radicals especially reactive oxygen species ROS , glucose oxidation, increased lipid peroxidation, and greater insulin resistance. Recent studies have shown that phenolic compounds are well known for their great capacity for radical scavenging, especially flavonoids which may be effective in the management and prevention of diabetes mellitus, due to interference in the absorption, digestion, and metabolism of carbohydrates [ 30 , 31 ].
However, both extracts presented a better EC50 value than BHT, which is a synthetic phenolic antioxidant currently used in food, despite the evidence that it causes enzymatic or lipid alterations, as well as carcinogenic effects and mutagenic activity [ 32 , 33 ].
Several phenolic compounds containing a flavonoid nucleus in their structure are reportedly useful for the control of diabetes by improving glucose and lipid levels [ 30 ].
Their results coincide with those reported by other authors, who have demonstrated that high polarity extracts are more active than acarbose [ 35 — 37 ]. The compounds in the extracts which produce antagonistic activity are polar in nature and a chromatographic HPLC analysis was performed to determine their composition and identify the possible active principles.
By using different standards Figure 1 , the resulting retention times Table 3 reveal that chlorogenic acid is the main component in both extracts, constituting Looking for a possible explanation for this behaviour, we decided to evaluate the inhibitory activity for the compounds epicatechin, chlorogenic acid, and quercetin, previously identified in the extracts.
Although chlorogenic acid is the main component, the antagonistic activity against the enzyme is low, which does not correlate with the activity that both extracts manifested. Quercetin, previously isolated from H. A peak at Likewise, the peak with a retention time of As these two components of low polarity may partly explain the perceived difference in activity, further research is necessary to isolate them for further structural characterization and biological evaluation.
Nuclear magnetic resonance NMR analysis made it possible to identify a 3-flavonol skeleton, and the 1H and 13C NMR spectra and two-dimensional spectra established the structure as - -epicatechin, concurring with a recent report for H. Table 3: The retention time of phenolic compounds at nm.
Different component. The second stage of the current study intended to explore the antihyperglycemic effect of the extracts in an in vivo murine model. FME and CME extracts produced a reduction in glucose concentration Table 5 , which reached a normal level after 10 administrations.
Likewise, the extracts and metformin exhibited a decrease in serum insulin compared to the diabetic control. However in the diabetic control as well as in acarbose, this behaviour was not observed. Some studies explain that this increase in insulin levels is due to resistance to insulin, which leads to peripheral hyperglycemia and major insulin secretion, a process known as compensatory hyperinsulinemia [ 44 , 45 ].The phenotypic manifestations of many of these mutations can only be understood through knowledge of metabolic pathways.
Specific exercises are set which the reader of this book may try. Southern Weed Conf.
A small proportion plants of such plants have been studied to explore their effect and of these; only have had their action mechanism analyzed [ 9 — 11 ]. Electronic books Additional Physical Format: Your name. Total Flavonoid Content Total flavonoid content was evaluated using an aluminum chloride method with slight modifications [ 23 ].
