Each biochemical test was done with known controls.11 Indole Production (IP) test was done in which bacteria split amino acid tryptophan into indole and pyruvic acid using the enzyme tryptophanase.

Thiamine is a component of thiamine pyrophosphate, which participates in oxidative decarboxylation of pyruvic acid and [alpha]-ketoglutaric acid.
We prepared ten kinds of metabolites, which are pyruvic acid; glucose-6-phosphate dipotassium salt; fructose-6-phosphate dipotassium salt; succinic acid; aspartic acid; isocitric acid trisodium salt; citric acid; glutamate acid; [alpha]-ketoglutarate acid; fumaric acid acid respectively.
Before starting DCP therapy, patients were tested for hemoglobin, erythrocyte sedimentation rate, total and differential leucocyte count, platelets count, serum creatinine, serum glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase (SGOT), serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase (SGPT) and blood sugar levels.
Liver function test revealed mildly elevated transaminase levels (Serum glutamic oxalate transaminase/serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase: 68/64 U/L) and elevated serum alkaline phosphatase (206 U/L), bilirubin was 0.6 mg%.
They were screened by way of a medical history, blood chemistry (complete blood cell count, glucose, lipid profile, creatinine, serum glutamic pyruvic transaminase (SGPT)) electrocardiogram (ECG), anthropometry, and health questionnaires.
Spot blood carnitine profile, blood amino acid, urine organic acid, lactic acid and pyruvic acid were normal in repeated analyses.
The processing traits evaluated were dry matter content (DM), pyruvic acid content (APC), and flour and paste production; these analyses were carried out in the Fruits and Vegetables Pilot Plant of La Salle University (protocols available upon request).
Several precursors and pathways have been proposed for the occurrence of sotolon in wines: by peroxidation of acetaldehyde [28], thermally produced from intermediates generated from the Maillard reaction such as pyruvic and ketoglutaric (via glutamic acid) acids [29], by enzymatic or chemical deamination of threonine followed by the aldol condensation between [alpha]-ketobutyric acid and acetaldehyde [30, 31], and by oxidative degradation of ascorbic acid in the presence of ethanol [32].
