10), then creatine is hydrolyzed to urea and sarcosine by creatinase (EC 3.
0), 50 mmol/L ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid, 10 mmol/L NaCl, 2% N-lauroyl sarcosine, and 200 g/ml proteinase K (Boehringer Mannheim GmbH, Mannheim, Germany) for 20 h at 42[degrees]C, followed by phenol chloroform extraction and ethanol precipitation.
Classes of compounds detected by the NMR method included amino acids (alanine, asparagine, arginine, cysteine, glycine, glutamate, glutamine, homoserine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, sarcosine, serine, threonine, tyrosine, taurine, valine); alcohols (methanol and glycerol); ketones and fatty acid by-products (acetoacetate, acetate, 3-hydroxybutyrate, acetone, pyruvate, isobutyrate); sugar (glucose); other small molecule intermediates (o-phosphocholine, choline, n,n-dimethylglycine, citrate, creatine, lactate, methylhistidine, succinate, myo-inositol, dimethylamine, methylsuccinate, and 2-hydroxyisobutyrate).
The greatest degree of imprecision was associated with those amino acids present at concentrations <10 [micro]mol/L including homocitrulline, sarcosine, and [gamma]-aminobutyrate.
Glycine is a catabolic product of choline through the choline biosynthetic pathway via irreversible oxidation to betaine producing sarcosine (N-methylglycine) as an intermediate product, which is eventually metabolized to glycine (Locasale 2013).
Outer membranes are totally resistant to solubilisation by Sarcosine (27).
ABSTRACT: Two new coloured mixed ligand complexes of transition metal Cobalt ( 27 Co) with 1,10 - phenanthroline and Sarcosine (N - methyl glycine - an amino acid) as ligand have been prepared, using Methanol or Ethanol as a solvent in mole ratio (1: 2: 1) respectively, at room temperature.
2), sarcosine dehydrogenase (SARDH), LAP, NOS3, claudin 6 (CLDN6), and polypeptide N-acetylgalactosaminyltransferase 16 (GALNTL1), were found to be the most significantly detected in meta-analysis (Combined p-value: 0.
Creatinine: This enzymatic method is based on the conversion of creatinine with the aid of creatininase, creatinase, and sarcosine oxidase to glycine, formaldehyde, and hydrogen peroxide.
Urine obtained from rats with blood stasis contained higher level of taurine and lower levels of N-acetyl glycoprotein, succinate, 2-oxoglutarate, citrate, dimethylamine, glycine, sarcosine, phenylacetylglycine and hippurate.
45] found that amino acid plasticizers such as [beta]-alanine, sarcosine, and L-proline were more effective than glycerol in enhancing the flexibility and tensile properties of starch-poly(ethylene-co-vinyl alcohol) blends.
