Latex bead (30 nm)-conjugated thyroglobulin (17 nm), ferritin (12.2 nm), and catalase (10.4 nm) standards were used to measure the relative band migration rates.The gels were scanned using a GS-800 Calibrated Imaging Densitometer (Bio-Rad Laboratories, Hercules, CA, USA).The serum fasting triglyceride (TG) and total-cholesterol (TC) levels were measured using enzymatic assays with the TG and CHOL Kits (Roche, Mannheim, Germany), respectively.
Peptidyl glycine alpha-amidating monooxygenase (PAM) catalyzes a two-step reaction resulting in the C-terminal amidation of peptides, a process important for their stability and biological activity.
Hip circumference was measured at the protruding part of the hip in standing subjects using a plastic measuring tape with measurements to the nearest 0.1 cm.
Waist to hip ratio values were obtained by dividing the waist circumference by the hip circumference.
Peptidylglycine-α-amidating monooxygenase (PAM) may play a role in the secretion of atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP), which is a hormone involved in the maintenance of blood pressure (BP).
The objective of the present study was to determine whether 0.001].
Conclusion: PAM-dependent amidation has the potential to signal oxygen levels in the same range as the hypoxia-inducible factor (HIF) system.
