Metabolites

 

substances produced in the cells, tissues, and organs of plants and animals during intermediary metabolism and participating in the subsequent processes of assimilation and dissimilation.

In physiology and medicine, metabolites usually include the products of intracellular metabolism subject to final breakdown and removal from the organism. On entering the blood, most metabolites participate in the humoral regulation of functions, exerting specific and nonspecific influences on biochemical and physiological processes.

Although transcription factors are often the ingredients scientists use to induce stem cell fate, Dalby and Ulijn hypothesize that certain metabolites "fuel" the pathways that result in variable concentrations of transcription factors that drive these changes.
It was possible to gain insights into the efficacy of the treatments by looking at the concentrations of the metabolites having known association with diabetes (i.
Phthalate metabolite concentrations are correlated because they have common parent phthalates and source products, suggesting that estimates of association between percent fat mass and an individual phthalate metabolite may be confounded by other metabolites.
The secondary metabolites were placed at temperatures of 4, 25, 72, 100 and 121 C for 30 minutes to undergo thermal stability testing.
Results show that an increase in children's urinary levels of two metabolites (3 PBA and cis-DBCA) was associated with a significant decrease in cognitive performances, whereas no association was observed for the other three metabolites (4-F-3-PBA, cis-DCCA and trans-DCCA).
Therefore, the present study was designed to evaluate herbicidal potential of metabolites of three Drechslera species from Pakistan against R.
Liquid chromatography combined with tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) is a highly specific and sensitive method that has been widely used as a powerful analytical tool for the identification of drug metabolites in biological matrices.

Center for Epigenetics and Metabolism director Paolo Sassone-Corsi, lead author on the study and one of the world's pre-eminent researchers on circadian rhythms, said the liver metabolites reveal how the body clock - through the main circadian gene, CLOCK - orchestrates the interplay between metabolites and signalling proteins in much the same way a conductor leads a symphony.
In many cases, there are going to be findings of the actual substances, though in some cases there are metabolites or even in some cases, "markers" - things that companies put in that can be traced.
Phase I and Phase II metabolite biotransformations are well characterized; generating a list of chemical formulae of expected metabolites is fairly straightforward.
