Of those, not only 16 amino acids, but also the contents of 6 dipeptides also increased over the duration (Table 3).
These overrepresented classes covered over half (33/53) of the metabolites in the five annotated lipid pathways; half (3/6) of the metabolites in the purine metabolism, (hypo)xanthine/inosine-containing pathway; and over a third (24/61) of the metabolites on the dipeptide pathway.
Dipeptide standards were chosen to represent the range of chemical properties covered by dipeptides.
When glutathione concentration is reduced, [gamma]-glutamylcysteine formation increases and this dipeptide is converted to 5-oxoproline in the plasma; some of the 5-oxoproline is excreted in urine.
The ethylene dipeptide HIV-1 PR inhibitors usually contain benzyl groups.
The amount of the hydrolyzed Met-Gly amide bond in these reactions was determined by integration of the resonance for the glycine protons of the dipeptide attached to platinum(II) (4.02 ppm) and that for these protons of the free glycine (3.76 ppm).
This calculation highlighted 9 significant metabolites: galactose, uric acid, 3,4-dihydroxybutyric acid, galactitol, alanine, lysine, 4-hydroxyphenylacetic acid, serine, and hydroxyproline dipeptide. Notably, the entire set of metabolites resulted more abundant in Ph1, except for uric acid.
