meningitisI don't understand what the question is asking... can someone please explain it to me?
Patient doesnt eat protein, shes chubby. What does methionine have to do with this?+22019-06-04T02:28:47Z
charcot_bouchardJust basically asking which is essential amino acids.+22019-06-09T12:44:35Z
usmleuser007Essential amino acids (something i came up with)
1. "Three HAL fans will try meth"
a. Threonine = Three
b. Histidine; Arginine; Lysine = HAL
c. Phenylalanine = fans
d. Valine; Isoleucine; Leucine = will
e. Tryptophan = try
f. Methionine = meth
nala_ulaThey're saying there is a lack of good quality protein -> slight nutritional deficiency. She may have acquired weight but it's not because of protein. So they're specifically asking what amino acid she might be missing due to her subpar diet. Since essential amino acids are those that the body cannot make itself, out off those listed, methionine is the essential amino acid. It's on page 81 of FA 2019.+82019-06-18T16:37:36Z
nala_ulacorrect me if I'm wrong please :)+2019-06-18T16:37:56Z
helloFor anyone confused trying to follow @usmleuser007's comment --
Essential amino acids mnemonic "Ah, Three fans will try meth"
Ah = arginine, histidine
Three = Threonine
Fans (phans)= Phenylalanine
Vil (Will -- German accent pronouncing English word 'will') = valine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine
Try = tryptophan
Meth = Methionine+12019-08-07T17:27:50Z
pg32Why does @hello and @usmleuser007 mnemonic contain arginine? That isn't in the PVT TIM HaLL mnemonic for essential amino acids...+2020-01-18T22:13:08Z
whossayinThat’s a legendary explanation. Thanks dude!+2019-07-08T14:37:09Z
makinallkindzofgainzThis is exactly how I solved it! I remembered that Methionine is essential for methyl transfers, and you would need that in dividing (growing) cells. But now I'll just remember PVT TIM HaLL too :)+2020-01-18T18:44:36Z
