Plasma levels of homocystine
decreased by 83-88% regardless of pre-treatment level, and plasma homocysteine decreased by 71-83%, regardless of the pre-treatment level.
Concentrations of 6 other amino acids including alloisoleucine, homocystine
, cystathionine, cystine, argininosuccinate, [alpha]-aminoadipic acid, were not detectable (< 1 [micro]mol/L) in blood spot extracts.
Conversion of a qualitative screening test to a quantitative measurement of urinary cystine and homocystine
A hypercoaguability work up revealed normal levels of factor V leiden, protein C, proteins S, antithrombin III, and homocystine
levels, polymorphisms and the risk of ischemic stroke in young Asian Indians.
Various studies have suggested that alpha tocopherol protects the rats against various stressors like homocystine
induced oxidative stress18 and nicotine induced damaging effects19.
For example, adequate nutrients could be measured in terms of improvement in disease markers such as homocystine
(an amino acid believed to increase the risk of heart disease at elevated concentrations), and the prevention of chronic diseases such as osteoporosis (Wallace 2005).
Methylation of guanidoacetic acid by homocystine
plus choline with rat liver slices.
Wilcken and Wilcken In 1976, Shown in the first clinical study supporting the theory that coronary artery disease (CAD) had a correlation with higher levels of homocystine
To detect Hg(II) ion selectively, we modified (20,45) the surface of the gold nanoparticle with mercaptopropionic acid (MPA) and homocystine
(bound to the gold nanoparticle surface through Au-S bond) and we added a chelating ligand 2,6-pyridinedicarboxylic acid (PDCA), to the solution.
Folate, vitamin B12, and homocystine
in major depressive disorder.
The B vitamins, especially folic acid, have been associated with lowering blood levels of homocystine
(an amino acid, which in high levels, is associated with heart disease, stroke, and fractures).
