Any effect on the activity of the enzyme due to pesticide impact will result in impairment of carbohydrate metabolism (Grant and Mehrle, 1970).
Growth and carbohydrate metabolism of creeping bentgrass cultivars in response to increasing temperatures.
The inconsistency of results of carbohydrate metabolism in AD have probably resulted from heterogeneity in the clinical features of patients studied, lack of diagnosis of AD on standard research criteria, small sample sizes, inadequate control subjects and different experimental techniques.
Now the focus of the research is switching to Harvard, where the genetic defects will be inserted into healthy cells in an attempt to study their impact on carbohydrate metabolism. Research will also be conducted in France, where the defects will be studied in several hundred families with late onset, noninsulin-dependent diabetes.
Once the hormone concept had been propounded by Starling (see 1902 and 1905), it was easily assumed that some hormone produced by the pancreas exerted control over carbohydrate metabolism. In the absence of the hormone, carbohydrate metabolism went out of control, with the result that glucose built up in the blood and spilled out in the urine.
From this work, diabetologists, if they are so inclined, can treat diabetes with vitamin C to help correct faulty carbohydrate metabolism and its link to the disease.
Blood tests measuring enzyme activity, conducted by the researchers, demonstrated that women with ovarian cancer were likely to be deficient in their abilities to break down the galactose into glucose, the end product of carbohydrate metabolism that can then be used by the body as a nutrient.
Carbohydrate metabolism. Aging has been linked to increased difficulty in metabolizing glucose and thus to the onset of diabetes.
Although the mechanism for many diabetes-associated skin conditions remains unknown, the pathogenesis of others is linked to abnormal carbohydrate metabolism, other altered metabolic pathways, atherosclerosis, microangiopathy, neuron degeneration, and impaired host mechanisms.8 Autoimmune skin lesions are more common in type 1 diabetes while non-infectious involvement of the skin is more prevalent in type 2 diabetes.
These results suggested that high concentration of glucose may increase glycolytic capacity and increase the utilization of carbohydrate, but the enhancement of enzyme activity still lags behind the absorption of carbohydrate in fish, which was adverse to carbohydrate metabolism.
Carbohydrate metabolism is far more complicated than the release of glucose as energy.
Topics covered include amino acid and protein metabolism, nucleic acid, lipid and carbohydrate metabolism, vitamins and trace elements, starvation and exercise, and acid-base balance.
