What is the correlation between CQ10 and protein, and does CQ10 alter the normal protein structure.
Not at all : It's a coenzyme routinely present in many kinds of cells throughout the body, that aids in energy production in the mitochondria. It also serves as an antioxidant, and is abundant in some fish and red meat. Research on its benefits as a supplement is inconclusive. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Please clarify: Hi. Protein structure depends on salts, pH, presence or absence of amphipathic structures (membranes), presence or absence of other proteins, etc. Protein structure is not influenced by insulin per se. In the organism, insulin is anabolic and fosters protein synthesis, but the structure of the protein is not within the purview of insulin action. So I'm not really sure what you're trying to ask. ...Read more
Can you tell me in laymans term, how does the amino acid substitution that results in abnormal hemoglobin have a drastic effect on protein structure?
I read that pasteurized milk, has its protein denatured, in which the structure changes and cant be absorbed in the intestines.is milk protein useless?
Milk: The caseins (one of the milk proteins) are stable to heat treatment. Typical high temperature short time (HTST) pasteurization conditions will not affect the functional and nutritional properties of the casein proteins. High temperature treatments can cause interactions between casein and whey proteins that affect the functional but not the nutritional properties. Hope this helps. ...Read more
Major substrate: Fibrillin is a major building block of microfibrils which constitute part of the important substrate for the connective tissue so developing a defective pattern. I guess you might be asking about marfans syndrome which is the ailment associated with the fbn1 gene mutation. This is the background problem to the cardiac, ocular and musculoskeletal issues that caracterize marfans. ...Read more
Dcts.can u tell me if i soaked nutrella soyabeans chunks in water,does they loose proteins?and what happens to the protein content when i boiled it?
Heredity to function: Dna, deoxyribonucleic acid is the basis of heredity and it passed from parent to child. Chromosomes are the structures in which the dna is packaged. Dna codes for proteins. Proteins are made by cells by first transcribing the dna into RNA and then translating the latter to protein. Proteins carry out the functions of life, e.g., structure of organs, muscles, hemoglobin, hormones, antibodies. ...Read more
Too much is no good: No storage-all for structure and function (enzymes to do chem reactions). Can only add so much into the body/day. Intake in excess needs to be dealt with. Xs nitrogen in protein dealt as waste product by kidneys-might strain and increase damage to already damaged kidneys. Xs intake broken down to components-carbon chain into glucose and stored as glycogen or fat. 0.8-1.5gm/kg wt is plenty for most. ...Read more
Large cyst: normal for ovary to make cysts. These cysts develop and release the egg each menstrual cycle. However a 5 cm cyst is rather large and should be followed. It suggests you may have had what we call anovulatory cycles (egg not released when it should at ovulation and cyst gets bigger). If/when this cyst ruptures, it will likely cause some pain. Best to follow with your GYN. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
