The formation of D-amino acids on heating aqueous solutions of protein L-amino acids at pH 2.5 and pH 7.0 together with glucose, fructose or saccharose was investigated by enantioselective gas chromatography. The saccharide induced partial racemization (epimerisation) of L-amino acids is attributed to the Maillard reaction.
The aim of the study was to investigate the impact of a moderate zinc deficiency and a high intake of polyunsaturated fat on the mRNA expression of peroxisome-proliferator-activated receptor alpha (PPARα), peroxisome-proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARγ), and mitochondrial Δ3Δ2-enoyl-CoA isomerase (ECI) in the liver.
