Immune-mediated necrotizing myopathy.
Rouen, France. In Z Rheumatol, Feb 2016
An autoimmune aspect of IMNM is suggested by its association with autoantibodies directed against signal recognition particle (SRP) and 3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A reductase (HMGCR) in the majority of patients.
A novel MVA-mediated pathway for isoprene production in engineered E. coli.
Qingdao, China. In Bmc Biotechnol, Dec 2015
A novel biosynthetic pathway of isoprene in E. coli was established by co-expressing the heterologous mvaE gene encoding acetyl-CoA acetyltransferase/HMG-CoA reductase and mvaS gene encoding HMG-CoA synthase from Enterococcus faecalis, fatty acid decarboxylase (OleTJE) and oleate hydratase (OhyAEM).
Role of Nutraceuticals in Hypolipidemic Therapy.
Palermo, Italy. In Front Cardiovasc Med, 2014
The different nutraceuticals may have different mechanisms of action: inhibition of cholesterol synthesis primarily through action on the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase (policosanol, polyphenols, garlic and, above all, red yeast rice), increase in LDL receptor activity (berberine), reduction of intestinal cholesterol absorption (garlic, plant sterols, probiotics), and also the ability to interfere with bile metabolism (probiotics, guggul).
