About the Edition

The phenylalanine requirement for healthy adult males and children fed a diet without tyrosine was determined by the IAAO method using lysine as the indicator. Five healthy men and children were studied at graded levels of phenylalanine, devoid of tyrosine. The mean phenylalanine requirement, in the absence of tyrosine, was estimated to be 48 mg·kg-1·d -1 for healthy adult males and 28 mg·kg-1·d -1 for healthy children. The lower estimated requirement for children could be due to lower phenylalanine hydroxylation rate in the response of the substrate in children. Lower urinary tyrosine/phenylalanine concentration ratios in children implied that the rate of phenylalanine hydroxylation may be limited. The study indicates that phenylalanine alone may not provided the entire needs of aromatic amino acids in children fed a diet without tyrosine.There is no agreement in the current literature on the estimates for aromatic amino acid (phenylalanine plus tyrosine) requirements for healthy adults determined by stable isotope techniques. In addition, there is no data on the estimates for aromatic amino acid requirements by those techniques for healthy children. The choice of the best indicator is still under debate; however, phenylalanine and lysine have been used frequently in the indicator amino acid oxidation (IAAO) method. Leucine has not been evaluated as an indicator, but has been used in the 24-h indicator amino acid oxidation and balance technique.In order to examine the suitability of leucine as the indicator, seven adult males were studied in the identical study design of the previous study, but this time leucine was used as the indicator. With the intention of determining the effect of leucine intakes on the response pattern, the study contained two parts with two different leucine daily intakes: an excess leucine intake of 65 mg·kg-1·d-1 and the mean requirement of 45 mg·kg-1·d-1. The clear pattern of partitioning of the indicator amino acid between oxidation and protein synthesis was not observed at the higher leucine intake, but could be seen at the lower leucine intake. The requirement estimated was not different from that obtained using lysine as the indicator.

There is also discussion of regulatory mechanisms for all these metabolic pathways, and of metabolic and genetic diseases affecting the (human) metabolism of amino acids. Throughout the book the emphasis is on the nutritional importance of amino acids, integration and control of metabolism and metabolic and other disturbances of relevance to human biochemistry and health.

Aromatic amino acids. The aromatic amino acids, tryptophan, phenylalanine, and tyrosine can all be made starting with two simple molecules - PEP and erythrosephosphate (Figure ).

All three aromatic amino acids are also important sources of hormones, neurotransmitters, and even the skin pigment melanin.

There is a close mutual relationship between phenylalanine and tyrosine; phenylalanine converts to tyrosine in the liver and to phenylpyruvic acid in the kidneys. Aromatic amino acids have a common intermediary metabolism, and conversion of phenylalanine to tyrosine and its further metabolism.

The chapter discusses the metabolism of phenylalanine, tyrosine, and tryptophan. Phenylalanine acid tryptophan is “essential” amino acids for higher organisms— that is, they cannot be synthesized by the organism and must be supplied in the by: The book is divided into 3 sections. The first section is filled with background information on amino acids, muscle metabolism, energy balance, and brain and liver function.

The 2nd section provides information on amino acids and protein from a nutrition perspective/5(12). Publisher Summary. The chapter discusses the metabolism of phenylalanine, tyrosine, and tryptophan. Phenylalanine acid tryptophan is “essential” amino acids for higher organisms— that is, they cannot be synthesized by the organism and must be supplied in the by: The metabolism of amino acids will be described in the following sequence: 1 The most simple AA that give pyruvate – Ala, Ser, Gly, Thr 2 Amino acids containing sulfur – Met, Cys 3 Sources of one-carbon units and use of those units in syntheses 4 Aspartic acid 5 Glutamic acid File Size: KB.

The degradative pathways can be divided into two major classes. As shown here, most amino acids are converted to intermediates of the citric acid cycle or to pyruvate, which in turn can serve as precursors for gluconeogenesis; these are the glucogenic amino acids. Those amino acids that yield acetoacetate are called ketogenic, since acetoacetate is one of the ketone bodies (see slide ).

Amino acid metabolism is tightly linked to carbohydrate metabolism, ammonium (absorbed and synthesized from nitrate), and demand for protein synthesis and secondary metabolism. Amino acid biosynthesis uses compounds from carbohydrate metabolism, and amino acid degradation leads to several metabolites that are used by the citric acid cycle as an Cited by: The editors have built Aromatic Amino Acids: Advances in Research and Treatment: Edition on the vast information databases of ScholarlyNews.™ You can expect the information about Aromatic Amino Acids in this eBook to be deeper than what you can access anywhere else, as well as consistently reliable, authoritative, informed, and relevant.

The aromatic amino acids phenylalanine, tyrosine and tryptophan in plants are not only essential components of protein synthesis, but also serve as precursors for a wide range of secondary metabolites that are important for plant growth as well as for human nutrition and by: amino acid content of industrially processed foods; determine nutrient needs, and evaluate and ensure the adequacy of rations for vulnerable groups.

Although 2 earlier studies reported that aromatic amino acid (AAA) supplementation of children with severe acute malnutrition (SAM) improved whole-body protein anabolism during the early postadmission (maintenance) phase of rehabilitation, it is not known whether this positive effect was maintained during the catch-up growth and recovery phases of by: 1.

An aromatic amino acid (AAA) is an amino acid that includes an aromatic ring. Among the 20 standard amino acids, the following are aromatic: phenylalanine, tryptophan and tyrosine. However, in addition to being aromatic, tyrosine can be classified as a polar amino acid. In addition, while histidine contains an aromatic ring, its basic properties cause it to be predominantly classified as a polar amino acid.

While diabetes is characterized by hyperglycemia, nutrient metabolic pathways like amino acid and tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle are also profoundly perturbed.

The aromatic amino acids, phenylalanine, tryptophan, and tyrosine, are all made from a common intermediate: chorismic acid. Chorismic acid is made by the condensation of erythrose‐4‐phosphate and phosphoenol pyruvate, followed by dephosphorylation and ring closure, dehydration and reduction to give shikimic acid.
