    To determine the in vivo effect of amino acids (AAs) alone or in combination with insulin on splanchnic and muscle protein dynamics, we infused stable isotope tracers of AAs in 36 healthy subjects and sampled from femoral artery and vein and hepatic vein. The subjects were randomized into six...

    Using a monoclonal antibody, we have detected a high molecular weight muscle protein, co-localized and co-isolating with desmin. Searching a human cDNA database with partial amino acid sequences of the protein, we found a cDNA clone encoding a 1565-amino-acid polypeptide, identified as a...

    Symmetric DNA sequence motifs allow the formation of palindromic protein/DNA complexes. Although symmetric protein sequence motifs are less common, recent structural discoveries have unraveled a few protein/protein complexes with palindromic symmetry. Remarkably, symmetric protein/protein...

    Previous studies indicated that single-headed smooth muscle myosin and S1 (a single head fragment) are not regulated through phosphorylation of the regulatory light chain (RLC). To investigate the importance of the double-headedness of myosin and of the S2 region for the...

    The article discusses the addition of protein in meals for building muscles, avoiding muscle breakdown and preventing sarcopenia. Topics covered include dairy proteins such as whey with branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs) including valine, leucine and isoleucine, magnesium for increasing body...

    The article discusses the effects of obesity on whole-body protein turnover. Several studies revealed higher plasma concentrations of individual amino acids in obesity. A study found that obese older people have poorer muscle quality compared to nonobese older people. Another study showed that...
