The effects of Monosodium glutamate (MSG), a popular food additive, on hematopoietic and cardiovascular risk variables in animal have not been reported till date. We report here the effects of MSG on the said variables in rat model. Adult female rats of Charles foster strain weighing about 100-120 gms were administrated MSG at a dose level of 0.8gm/kg/day, 1.6gm/kg/day, 2.4gm/kg/day, respectively for 30 days. It has been seen that the mean body weight increases significantly in the entire MSG…

Some biochemical effects of sub-acute oral administration of L-arginine on monosodium glutamate-fed Wistar albino rats 1: body weight changes, serum cholesterol, creatinine, and sodium ion concentrations

Data show that L-ARG at 20 mg kg−1 of BW co-administered with MSG, significantly increased BW, serum CHOL, and creatinine concentrations, but reduced serum Na+ concentrations, and this effect may exacerbate MSG-induced adverse effects in rats.

From studies with the rat embryo in vitro, it can be concluded that the de- and remethylation cycle of methionine, being folate and vitamin B12 dependent, is crucial for embryonic and fetal growth probably via generation of DNA, proteins and polyamines.

Umami and food palatability.

The continued study of the umami taste will help to further the general understanding of the taste process and improve the knowledge of how the taste properties of foods contribute to appropriate food selection and good nutrition.

Monosodium L-Glutamate: Its Pharmacology and Role in the Chinese Restaurant Syndrome

Monosodium L-glutamate is the cause of the Chinese restaurant syndrome and can precipitate headaches. In appropriate doses it causes burning sensations, facial pressure, and chest pain. These are

Subthalamic nucleus‐mediated excitotoxicity in parkinson's disease: A target for neuroprotection

It is proposed that pharmacologic or surgical therapies that reduce STN neuronal overactivity or block glutamate receptors in the SNc and other target structures might be neuroprotective and might slow or halt the progression of neurodegeneration in PD.
