Sample text

In the human, ascorbate is absorbed in the small intestine by an active transport system that is sodium and energy dependent and requires a carrier protein. Any excess vitamin consumed beyond need is excreted in the urine. There is a very efficient reabsorption mechanism in the kidneys that serves to conserve ascorbic acid in times of need. Ascorbic acid readily converts between the free and dehydro forms. Thus, it functions in hydrogen ion transfer systems and aids in the regulation of redox states in the cells.

Thus, aldosterone plays an important role in sodium and water conservation (see Figure 2). ALENDRONATE SODIUM An antiosteroporous drug. Trade Name: Fosamax. ALIMENTARY CANAL See gastrointestinal tract. ALIMENTARY TOXIC ALEUKIS (ATA) See mycotoxins; trichothecenes. ALIPHATIC A chain of carbon atoms with associated hydrogen and hydroxyl groups. ALIPHATIC AMINO ACIDS Amino acids which consist of a chain of carbon atoms. These include alanine, cysteine, glycine, isoleucine, leucine, methionine, serine, threonine, and valine.

AMINO ACID METABOLISM See Appendix II : metabolic maps. AMINOACIDOPATHY Inborn errors (mutations in specific genetic sequences for specific gene products) resulting in inadequate utilization of one or more amino acids. Common examples include phenylketonuria, which results when one or more mutations occur in the gene for the enzyme phenylalanine hydroxylase. Table 6 lists some of these disorders. AMINO ACID POOL The free amino acids present in the cytosol of cells and in the fluids that surround them.
