Analysis of metabolic networks of Streptomyces leeuwenhoekii C34 by means of a genome scale model: Prediction of modifications that enhance the production of specialized metabolites
The first genome scale model (GSM) for Streptomyces leeuwenhoekii C34 was developed to study the biosynthesis pathways of specialized metabolites and to find metabolic engineering targets for enhancing their production. ...
Energetic and physiological correlates of prey handling and ingestion in lizards and snakes
In this review, we summarize the energetic and physiological correlates of prey handling and ingestion in lizards and snakes. There were marked differences in the magnitude of aerobic metabolism during prey handling and ...
Plasma antioxidants and glutamine supplementation in HIV
HIV+ patients present higher plasma levels of pro-oxidant and lower antioxidant markers irrespective of their nutritional status and the presence of HAART . The presence of HAART showed some beneficial effects on ...
The ecophysiological performance of Vernonia polyanthes Less. (Asteraceae) in conserved and degraded forests in the Brazilian Cerrado
This study was performed to determine whether the environmental conditions of the Cerrado domain could directly influence photosynthesis (primary metabolism) and essential oil production (secondary metabolism) in adult ...
Rodent models for the analysis of tissue clock function in metabolic rhythms research
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2017-02)
The circadian timing system consists on a distributed network of cellular clocks that together coordinate 24-h rhythms of physiology and behavior. Clock function and metabolism are tightly coupled, from the cellular to the ...
Melatonin, mitochondria, and the metabolic syndrome
(Springer International, 2017-11)
A number of risk factors for cardiovascular disease including hyperinsulinemia, glucose intolerance, dyslipidemia, obesity, and elevated blood pressure are collectively known as metabolic syndrome (MS). Since mitochondrial ...
Indeterminate form of chagas disease and metabolic syndrome: a dangerous combination
Chagas’ disease (CD) has been a major concern in public health in Latin America countries and in Brazil there are about 3 million people suffering from this disease. With the social and economic changes which have been ...
