Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus.

Nucleic Acid Metabolism Cell Differentiation and Cancer Growth: Proceedings of the second international symposium for cellular chemistryCited by: 1. The cancer cell possesses an hereditary defect in the normal mechanism of control of cell division. Since the nucleic acids form a chemical basis of heredity in the cell it is reasonable to suspect an alteration in nucleic acids in the process of carcinogenesis.

This implies some sort of qualitative alteration in the information transfer by: 8. METABOLIC REPROGRAMMING AND ONCOMETABOLITES IN CANCER.

Altered metabolic activity supports anabolic growth during nutrient-replete conditions, catabolism to support cell survival during nutrient limitation, and fortification of redox homeostatic systems to counteract the metabolic effects of oncogene activation, tumor suppressor loss, and other stresses ().Cited by: Nucleic acid - Nucleic acid - Nucleic acid metabolism: Replication, repair, and recombination—the three main processes of DNA metabolism—are carried out by specialized machinery within the cell.

DNA must be replicated accurately in order to ensure the integrity of the genetic code. Errors that creep in during replication or because of damage after replication must be repaired. An alternative approach is to target acetate metabolism. Although a major function of the mitochondria is to provide acetyl-CoA to the cell, cancer cells can also use acetate to support cell growth and survival during metabolic stress (hypoxia or nutrient deprivation) (96, ).

The cytosolic enzyme acetyl-CoA synthase 2 (ACCS2), which converts Cited by: Nucleic acid metabolism is the process by which nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) are synthesized and c acids are polymers of tide synthesis is an anabolic mechanism generally involving the chemical reaction of phosphate, pentose sugar, and a nitrogenous ction of nucleic acid is a catabolic reaction.

During digestion, nucleic acids including DNA and various RNAs are broken down into their constituent nucleotides. These nucleotides are readily absorbed and transported throughout the body to be used by individual cells during nucleic acid metabolism.

Anabolic Reactions. Nucleic acid-based aptamers are emerging as therapeutic antagonists of disease-associated proteins such as receptor tyrosine kinases. They are selected by an in vitro combinatorial chemistry approach, named Systematic Evolution of Ligands by Exponential enrichment (SELEX), and thanks to their small size and unique chemical characteristics, they possess several advantages over antibodies as Cited by: Lipid Metabolism R G Langdon, and and A H Phillips Annual Review of Biochemistry Nucleic Acids, Purines, Pyrimidines (Nucleotide Synthesis) S C Hartman, and and J M Buchanan Annual Review of Biochemistry Metabolism of Nucleic Acids E S CanellakisCited by: The progression of cancer is associated with increases in amino acid uptake by cancer cells.

Upon their entry into cells through specific transporters, exogenous amino acids are used to synthesize proteins, nucleic acids and lipids and to generate ATP. The essential amino acid leucine is also important for maintaining cancer-associated signaling by: 8.

The efficient delivery of foreign nucleic acids (transfection) into cells is a critical tool for fundamental biomedical research and a pillar of several biotechnology industries. There are currently three main strategies for transfection including reagent, instrument, and viral based methods.

Each technology has significantly advanced cell transfection; however, reagent based methods have Cited by: 7. Incell-free nucleic acids (cfNAs) were observed in the human blood circulation for the first time [].InLeon and colleagues [] reported that cell-free DNA (cfDNA) was present at concentrations ranging between 0 and 2 μg/mL in the serum of patients with breast cancer and that it was possible to analyze variations in the amount, depending on the stage of the disease and the Cited by: The experiments of Griffith, inwere one of the first steps toward proof that nucleic acids are the genetic material.

He used different strains of the bacterium pneumococcus to demonstrate a genetic ‘transformation’ of one strain type into another.

Different strains of pneumococcus can be distinguished by the type of polysaccharide found in the cell capsule. Abstract. Nucleic acids are polymers of nucleotides. The latter are composed of a five-carbon sugar (d-ribose or d-deoxyribose) linked both to a nitrogen base (purine or pyrimidine) and a phosphate group (nucleosides are nucleotides without this phosphate group).The purine and pyrimidine nucleotides which occur most frequently in the nucleic acids of cells are illustrated in figure Cited by: 4.

1α,25(OH) 2 D 3 (vitamin D 3) is crucial for mineral homeostasis in mammals, but the precise effects of 1α,25(OH) 2 D 3 in adipose tissue remain to be clarified in vivo. The initial hydroxylation is catalyzed by liver microsomal cytochrome P 2R1 (CYP2R1), which is conserved in vertebrates.

To probe the physiological function(s) of 1α,25(OH) 2 D 3 in teleosts, we generated two Cited by: In another study, Sun et al. [39] indicated that crocin inhibits proliferation and nucleic acid synthesis and induces apoptosis in the human tongue squamous cell carcinoma cell line Tca In.

Cancer Cell Metabolism. Research in cancer cell metabolism focuses on altered cellular metabolism that supports the cancer phenotype characterized by unchecked cellular proliferation, resistance to metabolic and oxidative stress, ability to evade programmed cell death, reduced dependence on growth factor signals, insensitivity to growth inhibitory signals, and resistance to therapeutic.

The PI3K 33 pathway thus plays a dual role in the cancer metabolism, by providing growth, survival and proliferation signals to the cancer cell, but also influencing the cells metabolism, thus.

A nucleotide is composed of three distinctive chemical sub-units: a five-carbon sugar molecule, a nitrogenous base—which two together are called a nucleoside—and one phosphate all three joined, a nucleotide is also termed a "nucleoside monophosphate", "nucleoside diphosphate" or "nucleoside triphosphate", depending on how many phosphates make up the phosphate group.

Introduction. The investigation of embryonic stem cell (ESC) 6 maintenance and differentiation in tissue culture has revealed a wealth of information about the earliest steps of development.

Lipids take part in a variety of physiological functions and have specific roles depending on their chemical structure and localisation within or outside cells.

For example, glycerolipids (e.g. triglycerides) are often used as Author: Jin Yan Lim, Hiu Yee Kwan. Benjamin S.

Cancer cells exhibit a dynamic metabolic landscape and require a sufficient supply of nucleotides and other macromolecules to grow and proliferate.
