Branched Chain Amino Acids and Human Disease

Branched Chain Amino Acids and Human Disease

Thursday, March 19, 2020

The New York Academy of Sciences, 7 World Trade Center, 250 Greenwich St Fl 40, New York

Presented By

The Biochemical Pharmacology Discussion Group

The New York Academy of Sciences

 

Recent clinical and preclinical studies have implicated altered branched chain amino acid (BCAA) metabolism in multiple diseases including diabetes/metabolic syndrome, heart failure, and cancer. However, many unknowns remain, including the mechanisms underlying the alterations in BCAA catabolism, how this dysfunction leads to disease, and whether aberrant BCAA metabolism is causal to or merely a consequence of disease. This symposium will bring together multidisciplinary scientists to review the landscape of what is known about BCAA metabolism in various systems, discuss knowledge gaps, and identify potential therapeutic nodes of intervention to ameliorate human diseases.
