L-Cysteine metabolism and its nutritional implications Research project
Kim, Sung Woo


The objective of the present study was to investigate the metabolism of enterocytes along the crypt-villus axis in jejunum of early-weaned and suckled pigs by isobaric relative and absolute quantification (iTRAQ) liquid chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) proteomics.

The main objective of this study was to investigate the metabolic pathways of L-Cys catabolism to GSH, H2S, and taurine, with special emphasis on therapeutic and nutritional use of L-Cys to improve the health and well-being of animals and humans. This work has been published in Molecular Nutrition and Food Research.
