  • For this they studied newborn mice and discovered that galectin-3 can exacerbate brain damage and that when they removed an enzyme called NADPH-oxidase, the brain injury and inflammation was even greater in some of the mice.

  • Compared with mice fed a regular diet, the high fat diet group had significant increases in prostate weight, and in the prostate expression of markers of oxidative stress (such as NADPH), and inflammation (such as the downstream targets of NF-B: nitric oxide synthase, and cyclooxygenase [COX-2]) were increased.

  • Light energy from the sun is captured by photosynthetic pigments and is transferred along a series of proteins and iron-sulfur containing compounds along the thylakoid membranes of the chloroplast; the net result being the formation of high-energy compounds such as ATP and NADPH.

    Photosynthesis

  • In theory, it needs only two (!) proteins: one that uses the proton gradient to generate ATP, and a second that uses another molecule (NADPH) to create the proton gradient.

  • Energy captured in the light reactions in form of ATP and NADPH is used to convert PGA into glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate (G3P) which can be converted to other organic compounds, or using energy from ATP, some is converted into RuBP to continue the cycle.

    Photosynthesis

  • In the reactions of the Calvin Cycle, chemical energy held within ATP and NADPH are used to convert carbon dioxide into sugars through a series of enzymatic reactions.
