Butyrivibrio fibrisolvens strains D1 and A38 produced little lactate, but strain 49 converted as much as 75% of its glucose to lactate. Strain 49 had tenfold more lactate dehydrogenase activity than strains D1 or A38, this activity was stimulated by fructose 1,6-bisphosphate, and had a pH optimum of 6.25. A role for fructose 1,6-bisphosphate or pH(More)
High-throughput biomolecular profiling techniques such as transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics are increasingly being used in in vivo studies to recognize and characterize effects of xenobiotics on organs and systems. Of particular interest are biomarkers of treatment-related effects which are detectable in easily accessible biological fluids such(More)
Higher intakes of folic acid-rich foods such as vegetables, legumes, and whole grains are associated with lower incidence of carcinomas in international comparisons and case-control studies. Deficiency of folic acid in experimental studies causes DNA damage that resembles the DNA damage seen in cancer cells. The requirement for folic acid in DNA synthesis(More)
