Effects of replacement of fish meal by soybean meal and supplementation of methionine in fish meal/soybean meal-based diets on growth performance of the southern catfish silurus meridionalis.
High levels of homocysteine and abnormal levels of methionine can cause many different symptoms in the body and lead to chronic, serious, and potentially life-threatening health issues.
12] is a required cofactor for methionine synthase, while, as noted previously, folic acid is a required cofactor for 5, 10-methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase.
In some previous studies, methionine had been supplemented to overcome growth depression in poultry [4, 5, 6, 7].
Cysteine and tyrosine are considered semi-essential because they are only biosynthesized from methionine and phenylalanine, respectively, and their dietary requirement should be presented as the sum of methionine+cysteine (sulfur amino acids) and phenylalanine+tyrosine (aromatic amino acids; Wu, 2013).
Antioxidant and source of sulfur- Methionine neutralizes a variety of oxidants forming methionine sulfoxide thus scavenges free radicals like H2O2, superoxide, ozone, hypochlorous acid and chloramines.
This material causes defection of methionine synthase that converts homocysteine to methionine and there for decreases concentration of homocysteine [2].
