As an example, I recently showed that the metabolite acetylcarnitine
can be quantified by a modified mrs protocol, Which allowed me to demonstrate in humans that acetylcarnitine
concentrations in muscle strongly associate with insulin sensitivity.
Seven were higher in the end-stage OA group compared to no/early stage group (pro-hydroxyproline, acetylcarnitine
, myo-inositol, N-acetylornithine, succinate, glutamine and urea).
The first several chapters cover nutritional medicine from Gaby's perspective, then review a long list of therapeutic agents including individual sections on vitamins, mineral, amino acids, and chemical agents such as acetylcarnitine
to S-Adenosylmethionine (SAMe) that don't fit into those first three categories.
The demonstration of strong positive relationship of free L-carnitine with functional spermatozoal characteristics in this study have further validated the fact that intrasperm L-carnitine is involved in mitochondrial energetics, keeping in mind the various studies which demonstrated carnitine uptake and expression of OCTN2 and OCTN3 carnitine transporters in mouse sperm,13 correlation of intrasperm L-carnitine with motility and survival in cervical mucus of bovine,29 and acetylcarnitine
contributing acetyl groups for energy production in Boar spermatozoa.
