Down-regulation of S-adenosylmethionine decarboxylase genes results in reduced plant length, pollen viability, and abiotic stress tolerance.
We have identified several genes including ribosomal protein L20 (RpL20; DEG9), S-adenosylmethionine decarboxylase (AdoMetDC; DEG7), Cold-acclimation specific protein 30 (CAPs; DEG 32), DNAJ-like protein (DNAJ-LP; DEG41), and Heat shock 22 kDa protein (HSP 22; DEG54) using BLAST (http: //www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/BLAST/) tool.
In this route, methyl groups available from s-adenosylmethionine (SAM), among other purposes, to DNA and protein methylation are sensitive to amino acids, folic acid, vitamin B12 and vitamin B6 supply.
Folate is also required for production of S-adenosylmethionine, the methylating agent required for maintenance of cystosine methylation patterns essential for gene expression regulation and for chromatin structure stability in critical areas such as centromeres.
S-adenosylmethionine (SAM) is a biomolecule that is synthesized in all mammalian cells (16) from methionine and ATP by methionine adenosyltransferase.
Homocysteine is a by-product formed in the biologic transmethylation reactions and detoxified with the methionine synthetase, which is the enzyme depending on vitamin B12, B6, and folate as coenzymes for proper functioning S-adenosylmethionine and methylation.
In a half-dozen trials, people with osteoarthritis who took 1,200 mg of SAM-e (S-adenosylmethionine) every day for one to four months reported as much pain relief as those who took non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like Celebrex or ibuprofen.
John's wort (hypericum perforatum), SAMe (S-adenosylmethionine), and omega-3 fatty acids (fish oil) are among the most effective herbal and dietary supplements used for depression.
The single source of homocysteine in humans is the demethylation of the essential amino acid, methionine, via 2 intermediate compounds, S-adenosylmethionine (SAM) (3) and S-adenosylhomocysteine (SAH).
DNA methylation is linked to thiol metabolism by glycine-Nmethyltransferase (GNMT), and it's catalyzation of S-adenosylmethionine (SAM) to S-adenosylhomocysteine (SAH).
S-adenosylmethionine (SAM): Compound that serves as the principal donor of methyl groups for methylation reactions.
The bird was started on a mixture of lactulose (667 mg/kg PO q12h), silymarin (15 mg/kg PO q12h, Spring Valley milk thistle [80% silymarin], Nature's Bounty Inc, Bohemia, NY, USA), and S-adenosylmethionine (10 mg/kg PO q12h, Zentonil, Vetoquinol USA Inc, Buena, NJ, USA) in an effort to treat hepatocellular damage potentially caused by the medication or by progression of the mycobacteriosis.
