Establishment of immortalized Schwann cells from Sandhoff mice and corrective effect of recombinant human beta-hexosaminidase
A on the accumulated GM2 ganglioside, Journal of Human Genetics, 50: 460-7, 2005.
Naringenin has been shown, along with other flavanones such as hesperetin and ponciretin, to strongly inhibit IgE-induced beta-hexosaminidase
release from RBL-2H3 cells.
The researchers also reported that brain cells in the treated mice exhibited normalized levels of the glycosaminoglycans and the lysosomal enzyme beta-hexosaminidase
Several tests have recently been proposed, such as mitochondrial acetaldehyde adducts, beta-hexosaminidase
or phosphatidylethanol (PEth), with promising results.
Effects of the cannabimimetic fatty acid derivatives 2-arachidonoylglycerol, anandamide, palmitoylethanolamide and methanandamide upon IgE-dependent antigen-induced beta-hexosaminidase
, serotonin and TNF alpha release from rat RBL-2H3 basophilic leukaemia cells.
Several other markers with considerable potential for measuring recent alcohol intake include beta-hexosaminidase
, acetaldehyde adducts and the urinary ratio of serotonin metabolites, 5-hydroxytryptophol and 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid.
Current status of carbohydrate-deficient transferrin, total serum sialic acid, sialic acid index of apolipoprotein J and serum beta-hexosaminidase
as markers for alcohol consumption.
