Royal jelly has been found to promote neurogenesis of neural stem cells in vitro, and contains adenosine monophosphate N1-oxide, which facilitates astrogenesis.
CD39 is an ectoenzyme that hydrolyzes ATP and adenosine diphosphate (ADP) into adenosine monophosphate (AMP) and is localized on the surface of endothelial cells and circulating platelets.
Forskolin activates an enzyme called adenylate cyclase, the main enzyme involved in the production of a significant metabolic molecule called adenosine monophosphate (AMP), which is responsible for enhancing essential lean mass-building hormones at the expense of non-essential body fat.
A team including researchers from McGill University, Concordia University and the Canadian Light Source (CLS) synchrotron have used crystallography to confirm a 50-year-old hypothesis: chains of the nucleotide adenosine monophosphate (AMP) can form a double helix structure.
The former leads to an increase in cyclic adenosine monophosphate and the latter to hyperpolarization, both of which result in relaxation.
