Carbon dioxide fixation is a polyphyletic trait that has evolved in widely separated prokaryotic branches. The three principal CO2-assimilation pathways are (i) the reductive pentose-phosphate cycle, i.e. the Calvin-Benson cycle; (ii) the reductive citric acid (or Arnon) cycle; and (iii) the net synthesis of acetyl-CoA from CO/CO2, or Wood pathway. ...

The effects of food components on blood fluidity were studied by in vitro assay using a dedicated microchannel instrument for model capillaries. We found that the fruit-juice concentrate of the Japanese apricot (Prunus mume Sieb. et Zucc), a traditional Japanese food, markedly improved the fluidity of human blood. Using HPLC, ...

Gastroesophageal acid reflux into the airways can trigger asthma attacks. Indeed, citric acid inhalation causes bronchoconstriction in guinea pigs, but the mechanism of this effect has not been fully clarified. We investigated the role of tachykinins, bradykinin, and nitric oxide (NO) on the citric acid- induced bronchoconstriction in anesthetized and ...

A chemiluminescence method for the determination of citric acid was developed. The method is based on the enhancement of citric acid on the chemiluminescence light emission of tris-(2,2'-bipyridine)ruthenium(II). In the presence of tris-(2,2'-bipyridine)ruthenium(II), upon the addition of Ce(IV), resulted in intense light emission. The emission intensity is greatly enhanced by ...

Gelatin capsule crosslinking is a well-known phenomenon that results in reduced dissolution of capsule products with the passage of time and/or under accelerated stability conditions. These studies describe one means of preventing capsule crosslinking by incorporating glycine and citric acid into a triamterene/hydrochlorothiazide 37.5/25 mg capsule formulation (triam/HCTZ). Triam/HCTZ without ...

The pharmacological treatment of calcium urinary stones, most of which are made of calcium oxalate (CaOx), is only prophylactic. The causes of nephrolithiasis are often unclear, and a number of patients were found to be deficient in physiological inhibitors, e.g. citrate, pyrophosphate, magnesium, and specific proteins. The identification and characterization ...

The evolution can be divided into three stages: chemical, prebiological and biological evolution. Most of the problems emerge when the development of cellular organization, the so-called prebiological evolution, is investigated. Here the possible evolutionary roles for formaldehyde as well as for the methylglyoxalase pathway are proposed. The theory, on the ...

Excised maize (Zea mays L.) root tips were used to study the early metabolic effects of glucose (Glc) starvation. Root tips were prelabeled with [1-13C]Glc so that carbohydrates and metabolic intermediates were close to steady-state labeling, but lipids and proteins were scarcely labeled. They were then incubated in a sugar-deprived ...

Fruit juice pH, titratable acidity, or citric acid content was measured in 6 populations derived from an acidless pummelo (pummelo 2240) (Citrus maxima (Burm.) Merrill). The acidless trait in pummelo 2240 is controlled by a single recessive gene called acitric. Using bulked segregant analysis, three RAPD markers were identified as ...

Azotobacter chroococcum MAL-201, when grown under nitrogen-free conditions with excess glucose, accumulated poly-beta-hydroxybutyric acid amounting to 75% of cell dry weight at the late exponential phase. This led to induction of encystment, which increased steadily with concomitant intracellular degradation of the polymer. Increase in encystment and PHB production were parallel ...

Aversive conditioning has an impact on the neural signal for the gustatory conditioned stimulus (CS). Here, we determined whether the code is also affected by preference conditioning. We paired the taste of MgCl2 (CS+) with intragastric nutrients in some rats (MG), and citric acid (CS+) with nutrients in others (CI). ...
