THURSDAY, Feb. 18 (HealthDay News) -- An amino acid called isoleucine may play an important role in weight loss, a new study suggests.
The amino acids are arginine, histidine, isoleucine, lysine and methionine.
Retention of initial stereochemical codon assignments for three of six amino acids (arginine, isoleucine, and tyrosine, but not glutamine, leucine or phenylalanine) is strongly supported.
For many years, scientists have been impressed with the ability of leucine, valine, and isoleucine to augment muscle mass.
The branch-chain amino acids valine, leucine, and isoleucine have been administered to test subjects with positive results.
The paper does not show that, say, isoleucine simply preferentially “binds to” a isolated AUU codon.
Instead this paper and its refs shows that, for example, random RNA sequences at least 22 nt long, with a UAUU motif somewhere internally, will coil up and collectively form a pocket that often preferentially binds isoleucine.
When you figure out "T" is not the same as "t", that Temperature is not the same as time, that aspartic acid is not the same as isoleucine, and when you get your algebra fixed, then this discussion has a chance of being useful.
What I did get was 3512 mg of isoleucine, 5320 mg leucine, and 4516 mg valine…not yet optimal but at least a start while I see what changes I might need with metformin ER and Maxzide.
