In contrast to normal cells, leukemic cells are unable to produce asparagine on their own and must, therefore, get it from the diet.
Various methodologies have already been developed, including baking and frying at lower temperatures (below 120 degrees Celsius) and reducing the levels of sugar and asparagine in foods susceptible to acrylamide formation.
The use of a slightly higher anhydride-toprotein ratio results in the acetylation of not only lysines, but serine, arginine, asparagine, histidine, tyrosine, glutamine, and cysteine side chains as well.
Derived from the micro-organism Aspergillus niger, PreventASe converts asparagine, a precursor of acrylamide, into naturally occurring amino acid asparate.
United Nations food health experts have concluded that acrylamide is potentially carcinogenic and genotoxic, and as a result, the EU food industry has developed voluntary 'toolbox' guidelines preventing the formation of acrylamide, which usually results in baked and fried foods via the reaction of asparagine and reducing sugars at temperatures higher than 120C.
