But, it blocks the protein synthesis of the ..
This review discusses the capacity of a cystine-rich, whey protein supplement Immunocal to enhance the de novo synthesis of GSH in neurons, and highlights its potential as a novel therapeutic approach to mitigate the oxidative damage that underlies the pathogenesis of various neurodegenerative diseases.
may be important for apoptosis that requires new protein synthesis.
First, while the studies on protein synthesis are interesting to ponder, they must be viewed in context. Acute studies on anabolic processes in humans don't necessarily correlate with long-term hypertrophy.
But a funny thing happened. Follow-up human trials failed to replicate the initial human findings. Studies on both young and elderly subjects using selective and non-selective COX inhibitors alike showed no differences in protein synthesis (4, 11, 15).
