How is the reduction of plasma alanine concentration caused by gluconeogenesis?

Alanine is the major gluconeogenic amino acid. Plasma alanine is used to make glucose in the liver (Glucose-Alanine Cycle), and thus when this occurs plasma alanine concentration is decreased.

In the glucose alanine cycle how much glucose production does alanine account for?

1.0 gram of alanine accounts for the production of approximately 0.681 grams of glucose in the glucose-alanine cycle.

What does the L stands for in L-Alanine?

The "l" should be lower case and in italic, and it can be spelled in full as "levo-". It describes the "handedness" of the amino acid molecule. The prefix "levo-" defines one orientation and "dextro-" the other possible orientation; as "l-Alanine" and "d-Alanine"; or, "dl-Alanine" for the racemic mixture of the two configurations of Alanine.

What is Alanine?

An alanine is a nonessential amino acid found in most animal proteins, or a specific residue, molecule, or isomer of this amino acid.

What is the property of alanine that helps explain its reaction to water and oil?

Alanine is an amino acid that is non-polar, hydrophobic, and has a neutral charge.

What is the property of alanine that helps it explain its reaction to water?

The amino acid alanine is non-polar, it has a neutral charge, not positive or negative, and it is hydrophobic.

What is the chemical characteristic of alanine?

Alanine is an amino acid. As such it can form peptide bonds with other amino acids to form a primary protein structure.Alanine is non-polar with a small side chain. This means that it is found either in regions of a protein embedded in the cell membrane, regions where protein subunits come together to form complex or regions within a single protein that would not be exposed to the polar cytosol. If you don't get this, read up on hydrophobic interactions if you can; it'll help.Alanine is a chiral molecule so it is either left (S or L) or right (D or R) handed. In proteins it will always be L-alanine.Alanine can also be involved in glucose metabolism. Alanine aminotransferase is used to transfer an amino group from Glutamate to pyruvate, making Alanine and 8-oxo-glutarate (aka a-keto-glutarate) which is important in the TCA cycle.
