The metabolism of sulfur (S) compounds concurs to the maintain of cell homeostasis and tissue integrity in the human body. Sulfur chemical species act in all cells as anti-oxidant/scavenging agents or regulators of membrane stability/excitability. At the same time, they also exert tissue-dependent functions behaving as protective molecules of the liver and cardiovascular system, as modulators of the immune response, gut activity and CNS neurotransmitter signaling. The involvement of S compounds…

Tryptophan Biochemistry: Structural, Nutritional, Metabolic, and Medical Aspects in Humans
TLDR
The role of Trp biochemistry in the pathogenesis of human complex diseases/syndromes primarily involving the gut, neuroimmunoendocrine/stress responses, and the CNS is underscore, supporting the use of -Omics approaches in this field.
Interventions for Schizophrenia----- An Emerging Mental Disorder
TLDR
The present review focuses on the causes, symptoms, Diagnosis and majorly on the interventions (treatment methods) of Schizophrenia.
Research and Reviews: Journal of Pharmacology and Toxicological Studies Schizophrenia: Psychotic Disorder
TLDR
The disease can be diagnosed by observing the symptoms, thus the patients can be treated with antipsychotics, which includes symptoms like mood disorders to suicidal tendency.
Schizophrenia: Psychotic Disorder

TLDR
In spite of the fact that schizophrenia is an interminable issue, there is help accessible and numerous individuals with schizophrenia can work freely and live satisfying lives.

TLDR
The correlation between homocysteine metabolism and the disorders described above with genetic variants on genes coding for enzymes of homocy steine metabolism relevant to clinical practice are reviewed, especially common variants of the MTHFR gene.
Mitochondrial dysfunction in schizophrenia: evidence for compromised brain metabolism and oxidative stress
TLDR
It is proposed that oxidative stress and the ensuing cellular adaptations are linked to the schizophrenia disease process and it is hoped that this new disease concept may advance the approach to treatment, diagnosis and disease prevention of schizophrenia and related syndromes.
Oxidative stress-related biomarkers in autism: systematic review and meta-analyses.
Metabolic biomarkers of increased oxidative stress and impaired methylation capacity in children with autism.
TLDR
An increased vulnerability to oxidative stress and a decreased capacity for methylation may contribute to the development and clinical manifestation of autism.
Brain Region-Specific Glutathione Redox Imbalance in Autism
TLDR
It is suggested that disturbances in brain glutathione homeostasis may contribute to oxidative stress, immune dysfunction and apoptosis, particularly in the cerebellum and temporal lobe, and may lead to neurodevelopmental abnormalities in autism.

TLDR
Novel findings from the field of epigenetics are presented, which demonstrate how the one-carbon cycle-derived methyl donor S-adenosylmethionine influences the expression of key genes in the brain affecting memory, learning, cognition and behaviour in schizophrenic, bipolar, depressed and autistic patients.
One carbon metabolism disturbances and the C677T MTHFR gene polymorphism in children with autism spectrum disorders
TLDR
This study indicates a possible role for the alterations in one carbon metabolism in the pathophysiology of ASDs and provides, for the first time, preliminary evidence for metabolic and genetic differences between clinical subtypes of AsDs.
The Role of Abnormalities Related to the One Carbon Cycle in Depression and Schizophrenia
TLDR
The role of SAM in modulating DNA methyltransferase-1 mRNA activity, cytosine 5-methylation, spine numbers and the expression of mRNAs encoding for reelin and GAD67 in GABAergic neurons in the frontal cortex in schizophrenia is reviewed.

TLDR
The low toxicological profiles of these sulfur compounds, combined with promising therapeutic effects, warrant continued human clinical trails and discuss the therapeutic applications of sulfur compounds in medicine.
