The adverse metabolic effects of branched-chain amino acids are mediated by isoleucine and valine.

Deyang Yu, Nicole E Richardson, Cara L Green, Alexandra B Spicer, Michaela E Murphy, Victoria Flores, Cholsoon Jang, Ildiko Kasza, Maria Nikodemova, Matthew H Wakai, Jay L Tomasiewicz, Shany E Yang, Blake R Miller, Heidi H Pak, Jacqueline A Brinkman, Jennifer M Rojas, William J Quinn, Eunhae P Cheng, Elizabeth N Konon, Lexington R Haider, Megan Finke, Michelle Sonsalla, Caroline M Alexander, Joshua D Rabinowitz, Joseph A Baur, Kristen C Malecki, Dudley W Lamming,

Low-protein diets promote metabolic health in rodents and humans, and the benefits of low-protein diets are recapitulated by specifically reducing dietary levels of the three branched-chain amino acids (BCAAs), leucine, isoleucine, and valine. Here, we demonstrate that each BCAA has distinct metabolic effects. A low isoleucine diet reprograms liver and ... Read more >>

Nicole E Richardson, Elizabeth N Konon, Haley S Schuster, Alexis T Mitchell, Colin Boyle, Allison C Rodgers, Megan Finke, Lexington R Haider, Deyang Yu, Victoria Flores, Heidi H Pak, Soha Ahmad, Sareyah Ahmed, Abigail Radcliff, Jessica Wu, Elizabeth M Williams, Lovina Abdi, Dawn S Sherman, Timothy Hacker, Dudley W Lamming,

Protein restricted (PR) diets promote health and longevity in many species. While the precise components of a PR diet that mediate the beneficial effects to longevity have not been defined, we recently showed that many metabolic effects of PR can be attributed to reduced dietary levels of the branched-chain amino ...

Patellofemoral joint kinetics in females when using different depths and loads during the barbell back squat.

Linnea Zavala, Victoria Flores, Joshua A Cotter, James Becker,

Back squats are a common strengthening exercise for knee and hip musculature. However, repetitive loaded movements like backs squats result in high patellofemoral joint loading and therefore may contribute to the development of common overuse injuries. Thus, it is important to understand how changing parameters such as squat depth or ... Read more >>

SAT-611 Dietary Reduction of Branched-Chain Amino Acids

Rowan Karaman, Eunhae Park, Brittany M Galusha, Victoria Flores, Dawn B Davis, Dudley W Lamming,

Abstract Background: One of the primary risk factors for the development of diabetes is obesity. Although moderate weight loss can lead to improvements in metabolic health, reduced-calorie diets are difficult to sustain. A number of groups have shown that low protein diets are associated with metabolic health in both rodents ... Read more >>

Social structure and relatedness in the fringe-lipped bat (Trachops cirrhosus).

Victoria Flores, Gerald G Carter, Tanja K Halczok, Gerald Kerth, Rachel A Page,

General insights into the causes and effects of social structure can be gained from comparative analyses across socially and ecologically diverse taxa, such as bats, but long-term data are lacking for most species. In the neotropical fringe-lipped bat, Trachops cirrhosus, social transmission of foraging behaviour is clearly demonstrated in captivity, ... Read more >>

Psychosis screening in schools: Considerations and implementation strategies.

Monet S Meyer, Adi Rosenthal, Khalima A Bolden, Rachel L Loewy, Mark Savill, Ruth Shim, Jacqueline Rodriguez, Victoria Flores, Earl Pavao, Tara A Niendam,

<h4>Aim</h4>Duration of untreated psychosis, or the time between onset of psychosis symptoms and accurate diagnosis and treatment, is a significant predictor of both initial treatment response and long-term outcomes. As such, efforts to improve rapid identification are key. Because early signs of psychosis commonly emerge in adolescence, schools have the ... Read more >>

Male-biased dispersal and the potential impact of human-induced habitat modifications on the Neotropical bat Trachops cirrhosus.

Tanja K Halczok, Stefan D Brändel, Victoria Flores, Sébastien J Puechmaille, Marco Tschapka, Rachel A Page, Gerald Kerth,

Gene flow, maintained through natal dispersal and subsequent mating events, is one of the most important processes in both ecology and population genetics. Among mammalian populations, gene flow is strongly affected by a variety of factors, including the species' ability to disperse, and the composition of the environment which can ... Read more >>

Nurses' Communication of Safety Events to Nursing Home Residents and Families.

Laura M Wagner, Lena Driscoll, Jasmin L Darlington, Victoria Flores, Julee Kim, Katerina Melino, Hema Doshi Patel, Joanne Spetz,

Although communication is an essential part of the nursing process, nurses have little to no formal education in how to best communicate patient safety event (PSE) information to nursing home (NH) residents and their family members. The current mixed-methods study tested an intervention aimed at educating nurses on how to ... Read more >>

Effects of deletion of the transcription factor Nrf2 and benzo [a]pyrene treatment on ovarian follicles and ovarian surface epithelial cells in mice.

Jinhwan Lim, Laura Ortiz, Brooke N Nakamura, Yvonne D Hoang, Jesus Banuelos, Victoria N Flores, Jefferson Y Chan, Ulrike Luderer,

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, like benzo[a]pyrene (BaP), are ubiquitous environmental pollutants and potent ovarian toxicants. The transcription factor NRF2 is an important regulator of the cellular response to electrophilic toxicants like BaP and to oxidative stress. NRF2 regulates transcription of genes involved in the detoxification of reactive metabolites of BaP and ... Read more >>

Spatial release from simultaneous echo masking in bat sonar.

Michaela Warnecke, Mary E Bates, Victoria Flores, James A Simmons,

Big brown bats (Eptesicus fuscus) use biosonar to navigate and locate objects in their surroundings. During natural foraging, they often encounter echoes returned by a target of interest located to the front while other, often stronger, clutter echoes are returned from objects, such as vegetation, located to the sides or ...

When to approach novel prey cues? Social learning strategies in frog-eating bats.

Patricia L Jones, Michael J Ryan, Victoria Flores, Rachel A Page,

Animals can use different sources of information when making decisions. Foraging animals often have access to both self-acquired and socially acquired information about prey. The fringe-lipped bat, Trachops cirrhosus, hunts frogs by approaching the calls that frogs produce to attract mates. We examined how the reliability of self-acquired prey cues ... Read more >>
