Specifically, a dramatic increase in species of Bifidobacterium was observed, including some known to metabolize
Washington, February 20 ( ANI ): The ability to metabolize
ethanol - the alcohol in beer, wine and spirits - might have originated in the common ancestor of chimpanzees, gorillas and humans roughly 10 million years ago, perhaps when this ancestor became more terrestrial and started eating fruits fermenting on the ground, according to scientists.
Two slices metabolize
into the blood sugar equivalent of eight teaspoons of table sugar.
A: Diabetes is a disorder characterized by abnormally high levels of glucose (sugar) in the blood and abnormalities in the body's level of insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas that helps body cells metabolize
glucose for energy.
The method comprises the following steps a) introducing into a cell at least one desired nucleotide sequence and at least one selection-nucleotide sequence to obtain a genetically transformed cell, wherein the selection-nucleotide sequence comprises a region which codes for a protein involved in the metabolizing of trehalose; b) placing a population with transformed and non-transformed cells into contact with trehalose and/or derivative thereof; and c) selecting the transformed cells from the population on the basis of the capacity of the transformed cells to metabolize
the trehalose and/or derivative.
Now consider the value of knowing a priori, through genetic testing, that your patient can metabolize
drug Y, but not drug X.
In an effort to determine whether individual differences in the ability to further metabolize
and neutralize MEHP might explain this relationship, the researchers also calculated the percentage of MEHP relative to the other metabolites.
(This would be the equivalent of about 1.5 servings of soy for the average two-year-old or four servings of soy for the average four-year-old.) Certainly, there may be differences in the way that infants absorb and metabolize
soy isoflavones, as compared to older children and adults.

Five different body organs help to break down (metabolize
) food into small units of nutrients.
PKU is an inherited inability to metabolize
the common amino acid phenylalanine, a byproduct of digestion essential for life.
Wetmur and his team are also switching gears to search for enzymes that metabolize
phthalates and phenols, as well as for genetic variation in these enzymes that might affect birth or growth outcomes.
