Meanwhile, nucleotide triphosphates such as adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and guanosine triphosphate (GTP) are broken down during postmortem meat aging, generating taste-associated products including IMP and guanosine monophosphate (GMP) [4].
2 The BH4 is synthesised from guanosine triphosphate cyclohydrolase (GTPCH), 6-pyruvoyl-tetrahydropterin synthase (PTPS), sepiapterin reductase (SR) and is regenerated by dihydropteridine reductase (DHPR) and pterin carbinolamine-4-dehydratase (PCD).
Guanosine diphosphate (GDP) or guanosine triphosphate (GTP) is bound to the alpha chain, while the remaining two chains provide a connection to the cell membrane.
NO stimulates the soluble guanylate cyclase to produce the second messenger cyclic 3',5' guanosine monophosphate from guanosine triphosphate (GTP).
The alpha subunit is the G-protein molecular switch, activated when it is bound to guanosine triphosphate (GTP), and when GTP is hydrolyzed to guanosine diphosphate (GDP), it is deactivated [9].
From the perspective of biological process, many genes had participated in the various biological processes associated with tumor, such as cell differentiation, cell or intercellular adhesion, calcium ion transmembrane activity regulation, cell proliferation regulation, cell migration regulation, metabolism process of guanosine triphosphate and diphosphate nucleic acid, and associated signal transmission, and electrically coupled cell communication.
