While some common foods that are high in tyrosine are cheese, milk, and tofu. The samples experimented on in the lab also had contents of tryptophane and tyrosine. The skim, 2% milk and the powdered protein contained both Tryptophane and tryrosine while the Gelatin contained Tyrosine. To see the specific amounts per 100grams, refer to Table 2 in the results section.
Enzymes. Lipids (Lipase) Lipase are secreted by the small intestine and pancreas. They digest complex lipids (fats) molecules into simpler, more soluble fatty acid and glycerol molecules. They exist of fats and oils and are made up of the elements carbon, hydrogen and oxygen and the most common type known of is the triglyceride. A triglyceride is made up of 3 fatty acid chains joined to a glycerol molecule.
Processed foods and beverages are the biggest sources of added sugar (and High fructose) in the diet. Sugar is very unhealthy and can have serious adverse effects on metabolism when consumed in excess. Sugar contains a lot of calories, with no essential nutrients. It also causes tooth decay by feeding the harmful bacteria in the mouth. For people who are inactive and eat a processed food, large amounts of fructose from added sugars get turned into fat in the liver.
AGMATINE SULFATE Agmatine comes from the primary amino acid arginine. Agmatine acts as a neurotransmitter to aid the production of growth hormone, nitric oxide, creatine, and protein. Agmatine can also decrease blood glucose levels and the removal of nitrogen waste productions in the body. L-NORVALINE L-Norvaline is an analog of the branched chain amino acid, valine. It can be found in foods such as dairy, meat, grains, soy and peanuts.
1. Describe the different types of renal calculi, their composition, and their prevalence. Renal stones (urolithiasis) are masses of crystals, protein or other substances that are a common cause of urinary tract obstruction in adults; they can be located in he kidneys, ureters, and urinary bladder” “(McCance & Huether, 2014, p. 1342). Renal stones are one of the most common urinary tract disorders and affects men more than women. They are classified according to the primary minerals that comprise the stones and the four most common types are: - Calcium Oxalate (80%) or Calcium Phosphate Stones (15%): These are the most common forms.
The fat in human diet triacylglycerol (three fatty acids and glycerol) gets emulsified by the aid of bile which is secreted by the liver, it is consistent of bile salt and phospholipids in to small droplets. This helps lipase an enzyme from pancreas hydrolyzed triglycerol in to free fatty acids and monoglycerides. The purpose of this experiment is to synthesize digestion of carbohydrates, lipids and peptides using enzymes that catabolize them in order to further understand all the components that goes need to be meet for digdestion to happen by manipulating different variables like pH, and
Making Soap 1.Define the following terms: triacylglycerol, saponification, surfactant, micelle. Answer: Triacylglycerol – An ester derived from glycerol and three fatty acids (from tri- and glyceride). Triglycerides are the main constituents of body fat in humans and other animals, as well as vegetable fat. Saponification – A process that produces soap, usually from fats and lye. Soaps are sodium or potassium salts of long chain fatty acids.
Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), assume a key part in periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is an aggravation of the gums which takes place after gingivitis when left untreated. Abundance microorganisms make pockets in the gums that harm the supporting structure of the teeth. MMPs contain enzymatic movement which is managed by tissue inhibiting matrix metalloproteinases (TIMPs). These proteins aid tissue redesigning and furthermore debase the extracellular matrix found inside the gums and result in the negative harm of them too.
Enzyme Depletion is when the Enzymes in a person’s body start to deduct. Some of the causes of Enzyme depletion are, Pesticides and chemicals, Cooking at high temperatures, Microwaving, Radiating and electromagnetic fields, fluoridated water, mercury amalgam dental fillings and root canals. Most of the causes of the depletion, we do daily, such as microwaving, dental fillings etc. Since Enzymes are a really important part of the daily functions of the body, if they start to decrease, it would affect the body gravely. The conditions that Enzyme depletion can cause are Protease (Digests proteins), which causes anxiety, low blood sugar, cancer, viral and bacterial infections and more.
At the introduction to the duodenum, alpha amylase is secreted by the pancreas and further breaks down the carbohydrates into primary simple sugars. Then they are transported and absorbed by the small intestine via the villi on the epithelial lining of the lumen of the small intestine. The epithelium absorbs these simple saccharides (such as dextrin and maltose). These sugars, in their simplest forms (as glucose, fructose, or galactose), will enter the capillaries where they enter the blood stream via different transporters such as the GLUT transporter (a facilitative sugar transporter)(7). Fructose and galactose will enter the liver via the hepatic portal system where they are broken down to glucose.
