Theoretical Evaluation of Both Unknown Substrate Concentrations and Enzyme Kinetic Constants of Metabolic Cycles  [PDF]
Antonio Sillero, Víctor García-Herrero
Journal of Biomedical Science and Engineering (JBiSE) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/jbise.2015.88045
Abstract: A formula has been deduced, and named as 2ESKV, relating the concentration of two consecutive substrates of a metabolic cycle with the kinetic constants of the two enzymes involved in their synthesis and degradation. After application of formula 2ESKV to consecutive pairs of substrates and enzymes, a system of interrelated equations was obtained allowing a great variety of theoretical postulates to calculate, back and forth: bunches of unknown enzyme kinetic constants and substrate concentrations, from complementary sets of known data. This vision of a metabolic cycle is of partial application to irreversible pathways and can be useful for modeling and understanding of metabolomics data. To our knowledge, the formula 2ESKV is here described for the first time.
Closed and Open Metabolic Cycles: Transition Time  [PDF]
Antonio Sillero, Víctor García-Herrero
Journal of Biomedical Science and Engineering (JBiSE) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jbise.2016.92009
Abstract: A metabolic cycle can be viewed as a central core and its branches. The central core is here firstly considered as a pre-closed metabolic cycle (CMC), with a unique first substrate, but with no input or output of other components. By contrast, the metabolic cycles in nature are open metabolic cycles (OMC) with output and input of external substrates (through “metabolic branches”), modulating continuously the enzyme activities and the total concentration of their substrates thorough complex regulatory phenomena. In this work, the transition from a Closed to an Open metabolic cycle has been simulated by a consecutive entry and exit of two components through the catalytic action of two enzymes. It is known that after any alteration of the initial conditions, the cycles need a time to reach new equilibrium. We have measured the changes of transition time (T.T.) values in 81 models of CMC differing in Km or Vmax values. In general, the T.T. tends to be shorter in cycles with preponderant lower Km and higher Vmax values. Further, Mathematica refinement for the estimation of transition time from the data previously calculated can be obtained with the use of the command Interpolating Function.
Metabolic Cycles: Effect of a Simultaneous Input and Output of Two Substrates  [PDF]
Antonio Sillero, Víctor García-Herrero
Journal of Biomedical Science and Engineering (JBiSE) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/jbise.2016.913053
Abstract: The metabolic cycle firstly considered here is composed of a unique initial substrate, six enzymes, and five empty boxes to accommodate the substrates derived from the transformation of the initial substrate. This cycle was considered as a pre-Closed Metabolic Cycle (CMC). Using this model, the influence of changing the kinetic constant values of any enzyme on the substrate concentration was explored. This model was transformed into an open metabolic cycle (OMC) by the input and output of two metabolites catalyzed by two external enzymes. In this case, the relative rates of input and output of metabolites were also examined; it can be concluded that the OMC cycles form delicate and fragile structures which can be theoretically disrupted, making them metabolically unfeasible.

Abstract: introduction: the appropriate management of postoperative pain is a priority among the objectives of the anesthesiologist. in patients with severe surgical vascular pathology, an effective analgesic treatment is usually provided with epidural continuous blockade. however, the intravenous administration of analgesics, either opiates or non opiates, is an alternative to the epidural route when this has to be dismissed. clinical case: we present the case of a 63-years old male patient carrying a femoro-popliteus bypass in the first portion of the left lower limb that underwent emergency surgery after being diagnosed of a false septic aneurysm in the left iliac artery with breakage of the femoro-popliteus anastomosis. general anesthesia based on remifentanyl was decided instead of epidural central blockade due to the urgent nature of the surgery and the regular intake of antiplatelet aggregants. the administration of fentanyl at sedoanalgesic doses (<0,2 μg.kg-1.min-1) was planned as postoperative analgesic strategy . the patient entered in the appu extubated, with spontaneous ventilation and a vas score of 2-3. twelve hours after his admittance to the appu, the patient underwent surgery due to the presence of clinical signs that clearly suggested an acute ischemia in mm.ii. despite this, the degree of comfort and the vas score did not changed during that period. discussion: remifentanyl chlorhidrate is an opiate with an extremely short action and a great analgesic power. due to its pharmacokinetic properties, it is a predictable drug in terms of the onset of its action and the end of its effects, regardless the infusion or the total dose administered. given the lack of a residual analgesic effect after the general anesthesia with this drug, an appropriate postoperative analgesic plan must be established. remifentanyl at doses < 0,2 μg.kg-1.min-1 allows to optimize the analgesia and comfort of patients in the appu and, hence, it is an alternative to epidural central blo

Abstract: objective: to study the prevalence of microalbuminuria and its association with more severe diabetic retinopathy in a group of insulin-dependent diabetic patients. materials and methods: during the period of january 1998 to december 2005 we examined 360 insulin-dependent diabetic patients with at least five years of evolution. we evaluated the presence of microalbuminuria by immunoanalysis. patients were evaluated by direct and indirect ophthalmoscopy and classified as non-retinopathy, non-proliferative, severe non-proliferative/proliferative, or macular edema. results: in this study, 24.1% of patients had microalbuminuria. most of the patients with microalbuminuria and macroalbuminuria were male and had a longer history of diabetes. microalbuminuria was associated with more severe diabetic retinopathy. conclusions: all patients with insulin-dependent diabetes of at least five years? evolution should undergo an evaluation of renal function including tests for microalbuminuria. in the presence of microalbuminuria an ophthalmologic follow-up may be particularly important.

Abstract: objective: helicobacter pylori (hp) gastric infection has been implicated as an important factor in occlusive arterial pathology. nowadays, it is suspected that central serous chorioretinopathy (csc) is due to a multifocal vascular occlusive disease of the choriocapillaris. the aim of this study was to determine the relation between gastric hp infection and csc. materials and methods: we evaluated a group of 16 patients with csc and 20 controls. hp infection was assessed by the 13c-urea breath test (ubt). clinical csc diagnosis was confirmed by fundus biomicroscopy and fluorescein angiography. results: out of 16 patients with csc, 11 (68.75%) were males and 5 (31.25%) females, with a mean age of 46.3 years. hp infection was positive in 11 patients (68.75%) and negative in 5 (31.25%). men were hp-positive (hp+) in 72.7% of cases, compared to women who were hp+ in 60% of cases. the difference in prevalence of hp between the csc-group (68.75%) and the control-group (30%) was found to be statistically significant (p< 0.05). hp+ patients had more gastric pain than hp negative (hp-) patients (72.73% vs 20%). conclusions: these results indicate a possible statistical association between helicobacter pylori gastric infection and csc. hp should thus be considered a risk factor in csc patients.

Abstract: Objetivo: La retinopatía diabética proliferante (RDP) se caracteriza por pérdida de la visión en la población joven. Está bien establecido que el antígeno leucocitario humano (HLA)-A24 es un factor de riesgo para la pérdida total de las células del páncreas. Nuestro objetivo es estudiar la asociación del HLA-A24 con la RDP. Material y método: Se estudió un grupo de pacientes con RDP (n= 95) y un grupo control (n= 60). A todos se les determinó el HLA-A24 mediante técnicas hibridación molecular. Resultados: El grupo control mostró menos frecuencia de HLA-A24 que el grupo con RDP (p= 0,043). El HLA-A24 se asoció a retinopatía diabética proliferante (OR = 5,4; 95% CI= 3,2-7,6; p< 0,001). Conclusiones: El HLA-A24 no es un factor de protección para la retinopatía diabética proliferante, es un factor de riesgo para desarrollarla.
