Over the past three decades, a vast amount of new information has been uncovered describing how the globin genes are regulated. This knowledge has provided significant insights into the general understanding of the regulation of human genes. It is now known that molecular defects within and aroun...
Increased formation of the reactive dicarbonyl compound methylglyoxal (MGO) and MGO-derived advanced glycation end products (AGEs) seems to be implicated in endothelial dysfunction and the development of diabetic vascular complications. MGO reacts with arginine residues in proteins to generate t...
Consumption of coffee beverages has been reported to cause gastric irritation in some consumers as a result of increased gastric acid secretion. In the complex mechanisms of gastric acid secretion, the activity and expression of the H+,K+-ATPase is regulated by transmitters, such as histamine, a...
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...
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...
Renal unilateral ureteral obstruction (UUO) causes acute generation of alpha-dicarbonyl stress substances, such as glyoxal, 3-deoxyglucosone, and methylglyoxal, in the kidneys. These alpha-dicarbonyl compounds are prone to form advanced glycation end products (AGEs) via the nonenzymatic Maillard...
Since pyridoxamine, which traps intermediates in the Maillard reaction and lipid peroxidation reaction, significantly inhibits the development of retinopathy and neuropathy in the streptozotocin-induced diabetic rat, treatment with advanced glycation end product inhibitors and antioxidants may b...
Advanced glycation end products (AGEs) take part in the pathogenesis of vascular, diabetic, and uremic complications. Their precursors are detoxified by the glyoxalase system. Our aim was to study A419C (E111A) single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) of the glyoxalase I gene in hemodialysis (HD) pa...
An aqueous solution of L-glutamine (50 mmol/L) and methylglyoxal (100 mmol/L) was incubated at 120 degrees C for 3 h in a 200 mmol/L phosphate buffer (pH 7.4). Four major fluorophores were revealed on the HPLC chromatogram. The same four fluorophores were obtained from the heating of a mixture o...
