Lecture 6: Proteins And Amino Acids- Set 3

making proteins from RNA; tRNA translates the mRNA code into a sequence of amino acids. something wrong in a protein, like an enzyme the process whereby the information coded in a gene is used to produce a protein, and is based on the need for the given protein. the essential amino acid that is available in the lowest concentration in relation to the body's need. -this limits the body's ability to synthesize a protein Name some nonprotein molecules that amino acids are used to make? DNA, RNA, and neurotransmitters (all N containing) What happens to the amino group once it is removed from the amino acid? It is converted into ammonia. Ammonia enters the liver and is converted to urea which goes to the kidneys for removal. After deamination, what must happen to the amino acid before it can be used for energy? The remaining carbon skeleton can be broken down to produce ATP or used to make glucose or fatty acids. It can enter at different points of the citric acid cycle, and then enters electron transport chain Breaking up amino acids is metabolically expensive. What does this mean? It takes up more energy to break these down than fat or carbs What happens to body proteins when energy Continue reading >>

    I think I need to start using one, especially since I have some dietary challenges
    Does anyone have one that is recommended. Also where can I get one and how much do they cost approximately.
    I don't know anything about them.

    I'm not an expert on this since I just purchased mine this last week . I think the only 2 available are from Precision and NovaMax. Precision tends to be a little more accurate but the strips are REALLY expensive. NovaMax doesn't seem to be quite as accurate (at least with glucose readings) but the strips are a little more reasonable. I usually look up this kind of thing on amazon. Some people have reported good prices from american diabetes wholesale so you might want to look there also.
    Just remember that the meter has to check blood ketones - not just glucose. Any strips you are looking at must check blood ketones - not the urine ketones (those strips are very inexpensive).
    Others will chime in with more info I'm sure

    I'm no expert either, but I got my Precision reader for free. We can't post links here, but I think if you Google "free Precision Xtra meter" the top search result should be the right one. It's totally legit - straight from the manufacturer. Also, the fact that the form asked for insurance info freaked me out, but apparently that's nothing. They didn't even have my insurance company in their selection list, so I chose a random one. I got my meter delivered via FedEx within a week!
    When it comes to the strips, it's not so easy or cheap. I found a Canadian pharmacy online where I've been ordering my strips. The price there is $19.99 for a box of 10, plus approximately $7 shipping to the U.S. It seems like the shipping takes forever, but I'm not sure if that's a fault of the specific pharmacy or the fact that it's coming from Canada and I'm simply impatient. I just tried a Google search for "Precision Xtra ketone strips" and the pharmacy I've been using was the third search result. You may have better luck finding a cheaper/faster pharmacy if you keep looking. I've just been sticking with the familiar!
    The only problem I've had with that pharmacy was that my second order of strips was very delayed because for some reason they had to talk to me on the phone to verbally confirm my order. And they didn't let me know this until several days after I placed my order. On the phone I asked them, why didn't I have to do this with my first order? They said that it was standard practice on all orders, and it was unusual that I didn't have to the first time. Well, when I got ready to place my third order, I crossed my fingers and tried it online again without calling...turns out no phone call was necessary that time either.
    Whichever meter you choose - good luck!!!
