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
All essential aminos: Some Amino Acids can't be made from others in your body, and a complete protein is one you can live on -- it has plenty of each of these. It's important for vegetarians to mix proteins to get enough of each amino acid; i respect vegetarianism if taken for moral reasons but it makes safe eating more complicated. ...Read more
No consensus but...: It is probably more common for people to get too much protein rather than not enough, but there is no consensus as to what constitutes too much. 30-60 grams of protein is enough for most people but many americans get 100-160 grams a day. Too much protein increases risk of osteoporois and other problems- see http://www.Drmcdougall.Com/misc/2004nl/040100puproteinoverload.Htm. ...Read more
