Rhodopsin / visual purple is a conjuated protein, containing Opsin as its apoprotein and retinene as its prosthetic froup.PowerPoint Presentation: Retinene in rhodopsin is II – cis retinal. (The aldehyde group of II – cis retinal is bpund to £-NH 2 group of Lys. Of Opsin) Even dimlight can break rhodopsin.PowerPoint Presentation: Walds Visual cycle Rhodopsin Photorhodopsin Bathorhodopsin Lumirhodopsin Metarhodopsin I Metarhodopsin II Metarhodopsin IIIPowerPoint Presentation: Retinal isomerase All trans retinal II-cis retinal Cis retinal Trans retinal Cis retinal Transretinal Liver Trans retinal Retinolisomerase in lverPowerPoint Presentation: Transducin – GTP Inactive Active Phosphodiesterase Phosphodiesterase CGMP 5’ GMP Na+ channel Na+ channel open (dark) open (in light) hyperpolarisialun generation of nerve impulse Transmited to visual centres in brainPowerPoint Presentation: In dark, there are high level of C- GMP, which binds to the Na+ channels, causing them to open In light, Thr’ Transducin, & phosphodiesterase, lowers CGMP, thus closing most f Na+ channel Transducin : Regulatory protein a. guanine nucleotide binding protein ( G- Protein)PowerPoint Presentation: Night blindness: or Nictalopia One of the earliest signals of vit A deficiency Is impaiment of dark adaptation There should be continuous supply of retinol for nromal visual function. Vit A dept depress the resynthesisi of rhydopsin & interferes with the function of rods resulting in night blindness DARK ADAPTATION: DARK ADAPTATION More photons are required to excite already illuminated rod, whereas only a few photons are sufficient to excite rod cell in the dark. This property is called Dark adaptation. TOTSTEN WIESEL was awarded Nobel Prize in 1981PowerPoint Presentation: Bright light depletes stores of rhodopsin: When a person shifts suddenly from bright light to a dimly area there is difficulty to see. A few min,later,rhodopsin is resynthesised & vision is improved. This period is called Darkadaptation time.PowerPoint Presentation: This is in vit A deficiency. Defi, of cis- retinal will lead to in darkadaptation time & night blindness.Defeciency manifestation: Defeciency manifestation Night blindness: Visual acuity is diminished in dimlight Dark adaptation time is increased. 2. Xeropthalmia: Dry,thick,wrinkled, keranatised conjunctiva.PowerPoint Presentation: 3. Bitot spots: Greyish white triangular plaques firmly adherent to conjunctiva. (upto the reversible) 4. Keratomalacia: Xerophthalmia persisting for a long time progress to keratomalacia (softening of comes) degeneration of corneal epithelium & opacities develop.PowerPoint Presentation: 5. Preventable blindness: Most common cause of blindness in Indian children below the age of 5. About 40% preventable National blindness control programme give regular vitA supplementation to children L synPowerPoint Presentation: 6. Skin & Mucous memb lesions Follicular hyperkeratosis / Phrynoclerma Respiratory tract infections Caliculi Acne. Others: Growth retardation due to defective syn of chondrotin so 4 HYPERVITAMINOSIS: HYPERVITAMINOSIS Alteration of skin & mucous memb. Hepatic dysfunction Headache, drowsiness, Peeling of skin about mouth discovered in Eskimos, after eating liver of polar bears.PowerPoint Presentation: Causes of Vit A defi: Decreased in take Obstructive Jaundice Cirrhosis of liver- reduced syn of RBP Severe malnutrition Chronic nephrosis.PowerPoint Presentation: Assessment of deficiency: Dark adaptation test: Increased in vit A deficiency 2. RBP – in serum decreased 3.Vit A in Serum decreased Colorimetric measurement based on Carr & Price reaction : Spectrophometry – absorption at 325nm.PowerPoint Presentation: B.Caratene as Antioxidant: Help to trap free radicals in tissues prevents heart attacks. Retonic acid functions: Role in gene expression & Tissue differentiation Role in GP syn Role in Mps syn – essential for sulfation of MPS in matrix of cartilage & bones.PowerPoint Presentation: 4. Collagen breakdown: Retonic acid – enzyme collagenase & prevents breakdown of coll. 5. Role in Keratinisation : Prevents ‘K’ of epi keeps mucous memb healthy. Therapeutic uses: Uses in Oral leukoplasia, precancerous condi Promyelocytic leukamia. DIETARY SOURCES: DIETARY SOURCES ANIMAL: Liver oil,buttermilk, cheese, egg yolk Plant : In the form of Provit carotene,Tomatoes,carrots,green-yellow vegetables,spinach,fruits such as mangoes,Papayas,Corn,Sweet Potatoes. Spirulina: (algae) – Good source of Vit APowerPoint Presentation: Abs: Vit A precursors are abs. in S.I in the presence of bile salts dietary vit A is in ester form. Hydrolyses by cholesterol esterase into F.A & free Vit A Free Retinol is abs & undergoes reesterification in intestinal epithelial cells. Liver is the only organ where carotena are converted to vit A Storage : stored in liver as retinylester ( retinyl palmitate)PowerPoint Presentation: Transport: Retinol is transported with RBP 95% is stored as ester in itocells of liver released into plasma when required. - 10-20 mg of vit A present per 100 g of liver.PowerPoint Presentation: Blood level : Vit A – 18 – 60 ug/dL Carotenaids - 100 – 300ug/dL D/R : Activity is expressed as I.U I.U = 0.3 ug of Retinol or = 0.341+ug of Retinyl ace tale or = 0.6 ug of β – Carotene also expressed as “Retinal equivalent”.PowerPoint Presentation: 1Retinalequivalent = 1 ug of Retinol Adult – (3000)IU/ day 5000 Functions: Role in vision Role in Reproduction – no conception takes place unable to carry pregnancy. Role in Epithelialisation Role in Bones& Teeth formation Role in growth. SKIN & MUCOUS MEMB SHOWS GRAIS CHANGES: SKIN & MUCOUS MEMB SHOWS GRAIS CHANGES Skin : becomes dry,scaly,rough KERATINISATION Lacrimal glands: Dryness of conjuctiva & cornea- XEROPHTHALM Cornea: Whote opaque spots on conjuctiva BITOT SPOTS epithelium becomes keratinised Softened & ukerated “KERATOMALACIA”PowerPoint Presentation: Resp tract: Keratinisation of mucous memb. Leads to infec & lowered resistance. Urinary tract : Keratinisation leads to calculi 4. Bone : Bone becomes cancellous, losing its structure, damages to brain & cord. Teeth : Thinning of enamel & chalky deposits. VITAMIN - E : VITAMIN - E Isolated from wheat germ oil in 1936 Tocopherol Tokos = Child birth Pheros = to bear ol = alcohol Anti- infertility vitamin Most potent biological antioxidantPowerPoint Presentation: Chemistry: Has a chromane ring with an Isoprenoid side chain – 8- Naturallu occuring Tocopherols. α - Tocopherol – 5,7,8, -trimethyl tocol β –Tocopherol- 5,8, dimethyl tocol r- Tocopherol – 7,8, dimethyl tocol Delta Tocopherol – 8 methyl tocolPowerPoint Presentation: The presence of phenolic – OH group on 6 th carbon of the chromane ring is the most imp- group for its antioxidant activity You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
