Search Results 1-10 of 16 for Purine
Uric acid is produced during the breakdown of purines, which are found in certain foods and are also formed by your body.
Because glucosamine doesn't contain purines, it isn't likely to increase uric acid levels or aggravate gout symptoms.
Other less common causes are a diet high in purine-containing items or your body producing too much uric acid.
Common purine-rich foods include liver, mackerel, herring, game meats and sardines.
Experiments in this area allow researchers in the lab to screen the wound healing of various purine agonists, many of which are currently in use for other indications.
Even if you strictly follow a low-purine diet, the decrease in your blood uric acid level is rarely enough to cure gout.
Wendy's contributions included mutation detection in native DNA samples, and studies of triple-helix formation by guanine-rich oligonucleotides in the purine triple helix motif.
Purines are also found in certain foods, such as steak, organ meats and seafood.
Paula's research focused on structures involving the "intra-strand purine motif," a group of triple-helix structures thought more likely to be stable under physiological conditions.
