When GABA is catabolized, succinate semialdehyde and alanine are produced via a pyruvate-dependent transaminase (Reaction 5, Fig.
Because apoB-containing lipoproteins are mostly catabolized by the liver, the CETP pathway may be an important route by which HDL-derived cholesterol is transported back to the liver in humans (99).
However, there was a trend toward increased ratios between days 3 and 9, suggesting that lipid was being catabolized.
Studies have been focused on their metabolism which shows that BCAA are firstly reversibly catabolized to their respective [alpha]-keto acids by branched-chain amino acid aminotransferase (BCAT) and then irreversibly oxidatively decarboxylated into acyl-COA derivatives by a mitochondrial branched-chain [alpha]-keto acid dehydrogenase (BCKD) complex (Harper et al.
An elevation of serum creatinine concentration is often used as an index of muscle catabolism, and when lactating sows are fed nutrients below the requirement, especially for energy and protein, body protein tissue is catabolized in an attempt to supply the nutrients to maintain milk production (Etienne et al.
These investigators suggested that the mutated gene product was an abnormal monomer unsuitable for assembly into a normal Hb tetramer and that it was quickly catabolized by the ubiquitin-related proteolytic pathway (18).
The tissue organic matter decreased continuously with the time of starvation suggesting that the energy reserves (protein, lipid, and total carbohydrate) were catabolized and oxidized to supply the energy required for metabolism.
Polymeric proanthocyani-dins are catabolized by human colonic microflora into low-molecular-weight phenolic acids.
Absorbable protein that is not converted to milk protein is catabolized for energy, and this nitrogen contributes to the urea pool, some of which appears as BUN and MUN.
These inconsistent results imply that 2,3,7,8-TCDF and 1,2,3,7,8-pentaCDF absorbed in the body were catabolized and metabolized to other metabolites.
