Two imidazole derivatives, carnosine and anserine, have been isolated from vertebrate skeletal muscle. Carnosine may be readily obtained from the ox (l), horse (2), pig (3), etc. Anserine, a methyl carnosine, has been isolated from birds, a reptile (4), fish (5), and certain mammals (6). The presence of the two compounds in muscles from the same animal has been adequately demonstrated only once: Hoppe-Seyler, Linneweh, and Linneweh (4) obtained anserine and a small amount of carnosine from the… Expand

TLDR
Relationships appear to exist between the zoological classification of a species and the identities and relative amounts of its dipeptides, and the reptile skins contained the same di peptides and other substances as their corresponding muscle tissues. Expand
Ability of Three Kind of Imidazole Dipeptides, Carnosine, Anserine, and Balenine, to Interact with Unsaturated Fatty Acid-Derived Aldehydes and Carbohydrate-Derived Aldehydes
Imidazole dipeptides (IDPs) such as carnosine (CAR), anserine (ANS), and balenine (BAL) are widely distributed in the skeletal muscle of vertebrates. Recently, several studies have revealed that CARExpand
Antioxidant activity of carnosine extracted from various poultry tissues.
TLDR
Conclusions include that extraction of bioactive dipeptide carnosine can be exploited from low economic value poultry tissues to increase the economy of the poultry industry. Expand
Carnosine content and antioxidant activity from poultry co-products, protein meal and stressed poultry tissues
TLDR
The aim of the present research was to extract carnosine from different poultry by-products and to measure their antioxidant activities using different analytical methods to evaluate antioxidant activity of the extract. Expand
Effect of anserine ingestion on hyperglycemia and the autonomic nerves in rats and humans
TLDR
The possibility that anserine might be a control factor for the blood glucose, and that histaminergic nerves may be involved in the hypoglycemic effects of an serine are suggested. Expand
Effect of anserine ingestion on the hyperglycemia and autonomic nerves in rats and humans
TLDR
The possibility that anserine might be a control factor for blood glucose, and that histaminergic nerves may be involved in the hypoglycemic effects of anSerine, are suggested. Expand
The metabolism of methylhistidine compounds in animals.
TLDR
1-Methylhistidine was incorporated into anserine in all species except the rat, but there was no incorporation of radioactivity from any of these methylhistidine compounds into other peptides or proteins. Expand
Evaluation of histidine-containing dipeptides in twelve marine organisms and four land animal meats by hydrophilic interaction liquid chromatography with ultraviolet detection
Abstract Histidine-containing dipeptides (HCDP) are widely distributed in the skeletal muscle of vertebrates, including marine and terrestrial organisms. In this study, we developed a simple, rapid,Expand
The effect of rearing system and cooking method on the carnosine and anserine content of poultry and game meat
Poultry meat has been shown to be a rich source of carnosine and anserine (CRC) but little is known of the effects of bird species and the system under which it is reared have on the concentrationsExpand
Naturally occurring peptides.
TLDR
This chapter discusses naturally occurring peptides, which allows several generalizations concerning their importance as distinct chemical entities. Expand
