Glycine metabolism in animals and humans: implications for nutrition and health

Glycine plays an important role in metabolic regulation, anti-oxidative reactions, and neurological function and has been used to prevent tissue injury, promote protein synthesis and wound healing, and improve immunity.

Food-derived peptides and intestinal functions.

Carnosine, a dipeptide contained in skeletal muscles, was observed to suppress the secretion of inflammatory cytokines by intestinal epithelial cells that had been exposed to oxidative stress.

Endotoxin: the uninvited guest.

Human gut microbiota and its relationship to health and disease.

The present review is based on webinar presentations that were developed by the American Gastroenterological Association and ISAPP and provided fundamental and current scientific information on the influence of gut microbiota on human health and disease, as well as clinical intervention strategies and practical guidelines for the use of probiotics and prebiotics.

Immunonutrition as an adjuvant therapy for burns.

Evidence of an effect of glutamine on mortality reduction is found, but this finding should be taken with care.

Angiotensin II revisited: new roles in inflammation, immunology and aging

Findings from the discovery of Ang II open the unanticipated perspective for exploring Ang II signalling in therapeutic interventions in inflammatory diseases and aging‐related tissue injury.

Intestinal mucosal barrier function in health and disease

Recent advances have uncovered mechanisms by which the intestinal mucosal barrier is regulated in response to physiological and immunological stimuli, along with evidence that this regulation shapes mucosal immune responses in the gut and, when dysfunctional, may contribute to disease.

Cellular senescence and the senescent secretory phenotype: therapeutic opportunities.

This work reviews the mechanisms that induce senescence and the SASP, their associations with chronic disease and frailty, therapeutic opportunities based on targeting senescent cells and the ASP, and potential paths to developing clinical interventions.

The metabolic fates of amino acids and the formation of glutamine in skeletal muscle.

Diaphragms from fasting rats were incubated in vitro to study the fates of aspartate, asparagine, glutamate, isoleucine, and valine, the only amino acids that can be converted to tricarboxylic acid cycle intermediates in muscle.
