¹³ C MRS to Probe Brain Metabolism Using Hyperpolarized Pyruvic Acid
We present an article about the hyperpolarization of 13C labeled metabolites, especially pyruvic acid, using dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) that allows real-time magnetic resonance spectroscopy.
Pentose Phosphate Pathway
The Pentose Phosphate Pathway operates in tissues that synthesize fatty acids and steroids. Learn more about the Pentose Phosphate Pathway, what it is and how it works.
Isoprene Biosynthesis
Two metabolic pathways exist for the biosynthesis of isopentenyl pyrophosphate and dimethylallyl pyrophosphate: The mevalonate pathway, predominantly used by plants and in a few insect species. The non-mevalonate pathway or methyl D-erythritol 4-phosphate (MEP) pathway, which occurs in plant chloroplasts
Analysis of Isoprenoid Pathway Metabolites by LC-MS
Read our Biofiles article on Analysis of Isoprenoid Pathway Metabolites by LC-MS.
Acetylcholine Synthesis and Metabolism
Acetylcholine is synthesized from acetyl coenzyme A and choline by the enzyme choline acetyltransferase. In addition to its synthesis in the liver, choline employed in acetylcholine production is derived from dietary sources.
Neuropeptidases
We offers many products related to neuropeptidases for your research needs.
Glutamate/GABA Synthesis and Metabolism
Glutamine is a common precursor for the biosynthesis of both glutamate and GABA. Glutamine can be transported in and out of neurons and astrocytes utilizing different glutamine carriers. The neurotransmitter glutamate can be synthesized from glutamine by the action of
Neurotensin Receptors
Neurotensin is a 13 amino acid regulatory peptide found mainly in gut and brain. Intestinal neurotensin is produced by a discrete population of endocrine cells (N cells) scattered throughout the jejuno-ileal mucosa.
Glutamate Receptors (Ion Channel Family)
We offers many products related to ion channel family glutamate receptors for your research needs.
Lysophospholipid Receptors
Sigma-Aldrich offers many products related to lysophospholipid receptors for your research needs.
Tachykinin Receptors
We offer many products related to tachykinin receptors for your research needs.
Chemokine Receptors
We offer many products related to chemokine receptors for your research needs.
Dopamine and Norepinephrine Metabolism
Either monoamine oxidase A (MAO) or catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) can catalyze the first step in catecholamine catabolism. The potentially toxic aldehyde intermediate generated in the MAO reaction (3,4-dihydroxyphenylacetaldehyde for dopamine, 3,4-dihydroxyphenylglycolaldehyde for norepinephrine) is either rapidly reduced to an alcohol (by
Prostanoid Receptors
We offer many products related to prostanoid receptors for your research needs.
Dopamine, Norepinephrine and Ephinephrine Synthesis
Dopamine-β-hydroxylase is located inside amine storage vesicles of norepinephrine neurons. Dopamine is actively transported from the cytoplasm into the vesicles. As the enzyme is a copper containing protein, its activity can be inhibited by copper chelating agents, such as diethyldithiocarbamate
GABAB Receptors
We offer many products related to GABAB receptors for your research needs.
α2-Adrenoceptors
α2-Adrenoceptors
Dietary Antioxidants
Antioxidants protect biological systems from oxidative damage produced by oxygen-containing free radicals and from redoxactive transition metal ions such as iron, copper, and cadmium.
β-Adrenoceptors
β-Adrenoceptors are activated either by norepinephrine or epinephrine. Learn more about the role of β-adrenoceptors in protein expression, cell signaling, and metabolism research.
Galanin Receptors
We offer many products related to galanin receptors for your research needs.
Histamine Synthesis and Metabolism
Our company offers many products related to histamine synthesis and metabolism for your research needs.
Vasopressin and Oxytocin Receptors
Sigma-Aldrich offers many products related to vasopressin and oxytocin receptors for your research needs.
GABAC Receptors
Introduction to GABAC receptors as well as modulators and other products for your research needs.
Dopamine Receptors
We offer many products related to dopamine receptors for your research needs.
P2 Receptors: P2Y G-Protein Family Overview
We offer many products related to P2Y G-protein family receptors for your research needs.
Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Heart Disease
The potential for the prevention and treatment of cardiovascular disease through increased dietary intake of omega-3 (w-3) fish oils is not a recent scientific discovery.
Oncogenes and Tumor Suppressors Reprogram Metabolism
We present an article about how proliferating cells require the biosynthesis of structural components for biomass production and for genomic replication.
Insulin Signaling and Energy Homeostasis
Glucose metabolism is regulated by the opposing actions of insulin and glucagon. Insulin is released from pancreatic ß cells in response to high blood glucose levels and regulates glucose metabolism through its actions on muscle, liver, and adipose tissue.
Stable Isotope Labeled Fatty Acids as Metabolic Tracers
Sigma-Aldrich.com presents an article about Stable Isotope labeled fatty acids and triglycerides can be used as tracers to follow the metabolism of dietary fat.
Papain, Cysteine Protease, Properties & Products
Papain is a cysteine protease of the peptidase C1 family. Papain consists of a single polypeptide chain with three disulfide bridges and a sulfhydryl group necessary for activity of the enzyme.
