Not all dietary proteins are created equal
(FoodMinds) A new manuscript recently published in The Journal of Nutrition investigated the physiological response to various ounce equivalents of protein food sources and found that the consumption of ounce equivalents of animal-based protein food sources resulted in greater gain in whole-body net protein balance above baseline than the ounce equivalents of plant-based protein food sources.

The metabolic and molecular regulation of physical activity and nutrition in skeletal muscle, in relation to ageing
Increases in muscle protein synthesis (MPS) and decreases in muscle protein breakdown (MPB) associated with food-intake are fundamental processes underlying day-to-day skeletal muscle maintenance. Increasing circulatory essential amino acids (EAA) through oral intake/I.V infusions of free-amino acids, or ingestion of dietary proteins, stimulates skeletal muscle anabolism. Yet, crucially, while physical activity enhances anabolic responses to nutrition; inactivity and chronological ageing impair them. It is crucial in the many scenarios of muscle wasting (e.g. cancer, ageing, organ failure, trauma), nutrition/physical activ...

Diet posttranslationally modifies the mouse gut microbial proteome to modulate renal function
Associations between chronic kidney disease (CKD) and the gut microbiota have been postulated, yet questions remain about the underlying mechanisms. In humans, dietary protein increases gut bacterial production of hydrogen sulfide (H2S), indole, and indoxyl sulfate. The latter are uremic toxins, and H2S has diverse physiological functions, some of which are mediated by posttranslational modification. In a mouse model of CKD, we found that a high sulfur amino acid–containing diet resulted in posttranslationally modified microbial tryptophanase activity. This reduced uremic toxin–producing activity and ameliorate...

Veggie-loving fish could be the new white meat
(University of California - Irvine) A secret to survival amid rising global temperatures could be dwelling in the tidepools of the US West Coast. Findings by University of California, Irvine biologists studying the genome of an unusual fish residing in those waters offer new possibilities for humans to obtain dietary protein as climate change imperils traditional sources. Their paper appears in Proceedings of the Royal Society B. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)
