Vitamin and Mineral Metabolism

Metabolism is the biochemical process by which an organism converts what it ingests into energy. This energy is used for many biological processes like thinking, growing, breathing, and pumping blood to all the organs in the body. Metabolism is a constant process as metabolic reactions are concurrently occurring in the body and cells at the same time, all the time. The endocrine system plays a very important role in metabolism. Vitamins and minerals help bodies function properly. Most vitamins and minerals are absorbed through the food that people ate. The ones that are not can be taken in supplemental form. Vitamins are organic compounds that cannot be synthesized by the body and are required in small amounts. They have two main categories- fat soluble and water soluble. Fat soluble vitamins dissolve in fat and can be absorbed or stored by the body. Water soluble vitamins can only be absorbed in the presence of water. Minerals are inorganic elements that cannot be synthesized or inter-converted by the body. Vitamins and minerals can boost the immune system, support normal growth and development, and help cells and organs function properly. Vitamins and minerals have a fundamental role in cellular energy generation or metabolism. They can act as coenzymes and cofactors in numerous metabolic processes and are active proton and electron carriers in the ATP-generating cellular respiratory chain.

Anti-SRD5A2 antibody binds against the target steroid 5 alpha reductase 2. SRD5A2 converts testosterone into DHT and progesterone or corticosterone and plays a central role in sexual differentiation and androgen physiology. SRD5A2 is expressed in the prostate and localized on the microsome and endoplasmic reticulum membranes. Defects in SRD5A2 are the cause of pseudovaginal perineoscrotal hypospadias. Pseudovaginal perineoscrotal hypospadias is an abnormal arrangement of external genetalia. Individuals affected with pseudovaginal perineoscrotal hypospadias typically have somewhat male and somewhat female genetalia which has been linked to 5-alpha-reductase deficiency. The anti-hemopexin antibody binds to heme in blood and transports it to the liver for it to be broken down. After which, the iron is recovered and used in other applications and the free hemopexin is returned into general circulation to start the process over again.
