The epsilon-amino group of lysyl residues oxidatively deaminates in the presence of alpha-dicarbonyl sugars and redox-active metals forming alpha-aminoadipic acid-delta-semialdehyde (allysine; Suyama's hypothesis), which can further oxidize into 2-aminoadipic acid. Here we show that 2-aminoadipi...
The Maillard reaction of carbohydrates and amino acids is the chemical basis for flavor and color formation in many processed foods. Dicarbonyl compounds, such as 1-, 3-deoxyosones and 1,4-dideoxyosones, as well as short-chain dicarbonyls, such as methylgyoxal or glyoxal, are key compounds of th...
Tissue factor (TF), is a cellular receptor that binds the ligand factor VII/VIIa to initiate the blood coagulation cascade. In addition to its role as the initiator of the hemostatic cascade, TF is known to be involved in angiogenesis via an interaction with factor VIIa and protease-activated re...
This volume presents the proceedings of the symposium entitled Strategies for Risk Communication: Evolution, Evidence, Experience. The symposium was held in Montauk, Long Island, New York on May 15-17, 2006. It explored practical methods and robust theories of risk communication informed by rece...
The sensitive and specific determination of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) is of considerable interest because these compounds have been associated with pro-oxidative and proinflammatory effects in vivo. AGEs form when carbonyl compounds, such as glucose and its oxidation products, glyox...
Furfural is an important intermediate compound of the Maillard reaction of pentose or ascorbic acid. We examined the browning of furfural and lysine by heating these compounds in solution and found two yellow compounds. The first, furpipate, is a novel pipecolic acid derivative and was (Z)-3-(2-...
Glycation of peptides and proteins by D-glucose is a universal, nonenzymatic reaction with important implications for the pathogenesis and diagnosis of many diseases, including diabetes mellitus. Whereas some modification sites have been identified in serum albumin and hemoglobin, a general appr...
Stem cells, with their unlimited self-renewal feature and their ability to differentiate into almost every mature cell type in the body, have enormous potential for research and therapeutic application. In this article, we review the formation of primordial germ cells, the precursors of adult ga...
Government agencies and other authorities often communicate earthquake risks using maps derived from geographic information systems. Yet, little is known about the effects of these maps on risk perceptions. While mental models research and other approaches are available to inform risk communicat...
Nephropathy remains a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in the diabetic population and is the leading cause of end-stage renal failure in the Western World. As a result of the diabetic milieu, increased generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) is thought to play a key role in the p...
