These enzymes when confronted with some abnormal light chains cannot adequately catabolize them owing to their peculiar physicochemical characteristics.
This distinction is fundamental in cephalopods, because they digest lipids poorly and their capacity to catabolize them is limited (Navarro & Villanueva 2000, Garcia Garcia & Aguado Gimenez 2002).
Similarly, humans' ability to catabolize ethanoll via alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) and acetaldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH) lends support to an evolutionary history with alcohol.
The BACTEC broth medium (12B) contains palmitic acid labeled with [sup.14]C; the mycobacteria catabolize the 14C-labeled palmitic acid and release [sup.14]C[O.sub.2]; the [sup.14]C[O.sub.2] in the headspace gas is measured by an automated radiometric system (BACTEC 460 TB).
However, the energy required to catabolize the excess of protein and/or AA may explain the situation by which increasing dietary CP level fat deposition is reduced.
The bacterium's ability to catabolize biphenyls is directly related to the presence of a locus of approximately thirteen genes known as the bph cluster.
During pro-longed recoveries, patients can catabolize up to one-tenth of their muscle mass despite putting on weight.
* Chronic, excessive intake of protein (or any macronutrient) elevates the activity of enzymes that catabolize it or convert it to fat.
The metabolite, or waste product, of serotonin is produced by the enzymes monoamine oxidase (MAO) and aldehyde oxidase, which together catabolize serotonin to the waste metabolite 5-hydroxy indole acetic acid (5-HIAA), which is excreted via the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and the blood.[7]
A second bioassay, the biodegradable organic carbon (BDOC) assay, is based on the activity of the indigenous microflora, particularly the ability to catabolize organic carbon to carbon dioxide.

2005); or c) that PPAR[alpha]-null mice expressing the human PPAR[alpha] in the liver respond to PPAR[alpha] agonists by increasing expression of genes encoding proteins that catabolize lipids, but they fail to show increases in markers of cell proliferation and are resistant to liver cancer (Cheung et al.
Both in laboratory and field situations, low concentrations of DOM may force larvae to catabolize endogenous reserves to fuel development, while larvae in DOM-rich seawater may be able to utilize those exogenous sources of energy, thereby sparing endogenous reserves (Jaeckle and Manahan, 1992).
