  1. 1. AMINO ACID METABOLISM (part 1)
  2. 2. OVERVIEW OF CENTRAL AMINO ACID METABOLISM ENVIRONMENT ORGANISM Ingested Diatary proteins 70-100g/d Bio- synthesis Body Proteins 35-200g/d AMINO ACIDS Nitrogen (NH3) Carbon skeletons (Keto- acids) Urea Degradation (required) 1 2 3 a b Purines Pyrimidines Porphyrins (heme) Niacin Neurotansmitters Polyamines c c Used for energy pyruvate α-ketoglutarate succinyl-CoA fumarate oxaloacetate acetoacetate acetyl CoA (glucogenic) (ketogenic) CO2 + Water
  3. 3. Metabolic Classification of the Amino Acids • Based on synthesis: Essential and Non-essential • Based on degradation (Fate): Glucogenic and Ketogenic Essential Amino Acids in Humans • Required in diet • Human is incapable of forming their requisite carbon skeleton Non-essential Amino Acids in Humans • Not required in diet • Can be formed from α-keto acids by transamination and subsequent reactions • Valine • Leucine • Isoleucine • Methionine • Phenylalanine •Tryptophan • Threonine •Histidine* • Lysine •Glycine •Alanine •Proline •Tyrosine* •Serine •Cysteine* •Glutamine •Asparagine •Glutamate •Aspartate •Arginine*
  4. 4. DEGRADATION (FATE) OF THE CARBON SKELETONS Carbon skeletons are used for energy. Glucogenic Amino Acids: degradead to TCA cycle intermediates Oxaloacetate, Fumarate,Succinyl CoA, α-ketoglutarate, or pyruvate (gluconeogensis). Ketogenic Amino Acids: degraded to acetyl CoA, acetoacetyl CoA, or acetoacetate ( form ketone bodies).

  7. 7. Biosynthesis of Amino Acids *Transaminations: Amino Acid1 +α-Keto Acid2  Amino Acid2 +α-Keto Acid1 + O R-CCO 2 - Glutamate Pyridoxal phosphate (PLP)- Dependent Aminotransferase + α- Ketoglutarate Biosynthesis of Essential Amino Acids Their -ketoacids are not common intermediates (enzymes needed to form them are lacking) so transamination is not an option. Biosynthesis of Non-essential Amino Acids Transamination of -ketoacids that are available as common intermediates. (treatment of hyperamonemia) All (except Tyr) synthesized from the common intermediates synthesized in cell : • Pyruvate • Oxaloacetate • -ketoglutarate • 3-phosphoglycerate NH3 + - O2CCH2CH2CHCO 2 - NH2 R-CHCO 2 - O - O2CCH2CH2CCO 2 -
  8. 8. Transamination Reactions : One Step Pyruvate + AA  Alanine + -ketoacid Oxaloacetate + AA Aspartate + -ketoacid -ketoglutarate + AA Glutamate + -ketoacid Transaminases: Equilibrate amino groups among -ketos. Require pyridoxal phosphte (PLP). Blood transaminases has a diagnostic value. (AST or GOT , ALT or GPT) All AAs, except Lys and Thr, can be transaminated. Most transaminases generate Glu or Asp. *ATP-dependent amidation of Glu, Asp:  GLU + ATP + NH3  GLN + ADP + Pi By the nnzyme glutamine synthetase Where NH3 is toxic ; stored as Gln. Gln donates amino gps in many reactions  ASP + ATP + GLN  ASN + AMP + PPi + GLU By the enzyme Asparagine synthetase. Low in some cell tumor types. ( Asparaginase treatment ) .
  9. 9. Transaminations Glutamate -Ketoglutarate + + Pyruvate Alanine Glutamate -Ketoglutarate + + Oxaloacetate Aspartate Glutamate-Pyruvate Aminotransferase (Alanine Transferase ALT) Glutamate-Oxaloacetate Aminotransferase (Aspartate Transferase AST) Blood levels of these aminotransferases, also called transaminases, are important indicators of liver disease
  10. 10. AAMMIINNOO AACCIIDD CCAATTAABBOOLLIISSMM AA.. NNiittrrooggeenn ((NNHH3)) H2N C O NH2 urea Most terrestrial land animals convert excess nitrogen to urea, prior to excreting it. Urea is less toxic than ammonia. The Urea Cycle occurs mainly in liver excreted by kidney. The 2 nitrogen atoms of urea enter the Urea Cycle as NH3 (produced mainly via Glutamate Dehydrogenase) and as the amino N of aspartate. The NH3 and HCO3 (carbonyl C) that will be part of urea are incorporated first into carbamoyl phosphate.
  11. 11. Carbamoyl Phosphate Synthetase is the committed step of the Urea Cycle, and is subject to regulation. H2N C OPO3 2 O HCO3  + NH3 + 2 ATP + 2 ADP + Pi Carbamoyl Phosphate Synthetase carbamoyl phosphate N H C COO CH2 CH2 COO H CH3C O N-acetylglutamate H3N+ C COO CH2 CH2 COO H glutamate (Glu) Carbamoyl Phosphate Synthetase has an absolute requirement for an allosteric activator N-acetylglutamate. This derivative of glutamate is synthesized from acetyl-CoA & glutamate when cellular [glutamate] is high, signaling an excess of free amino acids due to protein breakdown or dietary intake.

  13. 13. Fumarate is converted to oxaloacetate via Krebs Cycle. Oxaloacetate is converted to aspartate via transamination (e.g., from glutamate). Aspartate then reenters Urea Cycle, carrying an amino group derived from another amino acid. aspartate -ketoglutarate oxaloacetate glutamate Aminotransferase (Transaminase) COO CH2 CH2 C COO O COO CH2 HC COO NH3 + COO CH2 CH2 HC COO NH3 + COO CH2 C COO O+ +
  14. 14. Hereditary deficiency of any of the Urea Cycle enzymes leads to hyperammonemia - elevated [ammonia] in blood. Total lack of any Urea Cycle enzyme is lethal. Elevated ammonia is toxic, especially to the brain. If not treated immediately after birth, severe mental retardation results. Postulated mechanisms for toxicity of high [ammonia]: 1. High [NH3] would drive Glutamine Synthetase: glutamate + ATP + NH3  glutamine + ADP + Pi This would deplete glutamate – a neurotransmitter & precursor for synthesis of the neurotransmitter GABA (later) . 2. Depletion of glutamate & high ammonia level would drive Glutamate Dehydrogenase reaction to reverse: glutamate + NAD(P)+ α-ketoglutarate + NAD(P)H + NH4 + The resulting depletion of α-ketoglutarate, an essential Krebs Cycle intermediate, could impair energy metabolism in the brain.
