Amylose is made up of α(1→4) bound glucose molecules
Dr. Albert Crum, the founder of ProImmune®, understood that L-Cysteine is the most important part of that synthesis process. He also understood that owing to its unstable nature and oxidizability, L-Cysteine needs to be guided safely into bodily cells to participate in Glutathione synthesis. He proclaimed via his Patent that L-Cystine, which is made of two L-Cysteines bound together, is the optimal natural physiologic carrier of L-Cysteine until it passes the cell wall, whereupon the two L-Cysteines can immediately participate in the synthesis of Glutathione. Dr. Dean P. Jones, Director of the Emory University School of Medicine Biomarkers Laboratory, has discussed a cysteine/cystine shuttle in which cystine is transported into cells reduced and released as cysteine. Alternatively, plasma membrane oxydoreductases could use cellular reductives to reduce cystine to cysteine without transport.11
L-cysteine Benefits Side-Effects Dosage Studies Products
L-Cystine dihydrazide and L-cystine bis (p-alkoxyanilide) derivatives listed in Tables I, II, and III were prepared and submitted to antibacterial tests with Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Two methods were used for the synthesis of these compounds. The one was du Vigneaud's method and the other was a new route to cysteinyl peptides. In the antibacterial test in vitro, the strongest activity among these compounds was found in L-cystine bis (isonicotinoylhydrazide) which was inhibitory in a concentration of 0.1γ/cc. L-Cystine bis (p-pentyloxyanilide) showed antibacterial action in the range of 1∼0.3γ/cc.
