Characterisation of proline dehydrogenase and its contribution to energy metabolism in Trypanosoma brucei
TLDR
Growth studies using defined media revealed that procyclic forms in vitro can use either proline or glucose as an energy source, and a mitochondrial targeting motif present on the trypanosomatid enzymes, suggests that the mitochondrion is the subcellular localisation of this enzyme.
Mitochondrial transport in proline catabolism in plants: the existence of two separate translocators in mitochondria isolated from durum wheat seedlings
TLDR
Using durum wheat seedlings as a plant model system, this work investigated how proline enters isolated coupled mitochondria and found the physiological role of carrier-mediated transport in the regulation of proline catabolism, as well as the possible occurrence of a proline/glutamate shuttle in durum Wheat seedlings mitochondria.
l-Proline uptake in Saccharomyces cerevisiae mitochondria can contribute to bioenergetics during nutrient stress as alternative mitochondrial fuel
TLDR
The results strongly suggest that l-Proline uptake occurs via a carried-mediated process as demonstrated by saturation kinetics and experiments with N-ethylmaleimide, a pharmacological compound that is a cysteine-modifying reagent in hydrophobic protein domains and that inhibited mitochondrial transport.
Substrate recognition by proline permease in Salmonella
TLDR
The results indicate that the substrate binding site of proline permease consists of a hydrophobic pocket that accommodates C3, C4, and C5 of the pyrrolidine ring, which may be used to design new synthetic inhibitors of prolines transport that can effectively block proline uptake by microbial pathogens.
Does Wolbachia Change Diapause and Energy Reserves of Trichogramma brassicae in Response to Light Wavelengths
TLDR
The results showed that Wolbachia infection and light wavelengths had significant effects on the diapause percentage and energy reserves of T. brassicae, excepting glycogen contents, and should be considered to improve mass-rearing and long-term storage of this parasitoid.
A novel role for proline in plant floral nectars
TLDR
An insect preference test found that honeybees indeed prefer nectars rich in the amino acid proline, demonstrating that plants often produce proline-rich floral nectar.
A membrane transporter for tryptophan composed of RNA.
TLDR
A specific passive membrane transporter whose properties overlap those of single-molecule transporter proteins, can be made of RNA alone, suggesting that RNA aggregation is required for both binding and enhanced tryptophan permeability.
COMPARISON OF ENERGY RESERVES IN PREDIAPAUSE AND DIAPAUSING ADULT SUNN PEST, EURYGASTER INTEGRICEPS PUTON (HEMIPTERA: SCUTELLERIDAE)
TLDR
Energy reserves of prediapause and diapausing adult bugs were examined using colorimetric biochemical techniques to determine carbohydrates, lipids, glycogen, and protein content and showed that prediAPause males and females had significantly lower lipids than laboratory cultured bugs.
