    Modern yeast living in fleshy fruits rapidly convert sugars into bulk ethanol through pyruvate. Pyruvate loses carbon dioxide to produce acetaldehyde, which is reduced by alcohol dehydrogenase 1 (Adh1) to ethanol, which accumulates. Yeast later consumes the accumulated ethanol, exploiting Adh2,...

  • Role of branched-chain ketoacids in protein metabolism. Walser, Mackenzie // Kidney International;Oct1990, Vol. 38 Issue 4, p595 

    The article focuses on the role of branched-chain ketoacids in protein metabolism. Branched-chain ketoacids play a vital role in normal amino acid metabolism, owing to their rapid inter-convertibility (by transmigration) with branched-chain amino acids. Most of their potential therapeutic uses...
