From the Introduction.
The main aim of this new book is to summarise the knowledge on the metabolic transformation of carnosine in excitable tissues of animals and human beings and to analyse the nature of its biological activity. At the beginning of monograph, the short history of the problem is stated. Distribution of carnosine in tissues, its appearance in ontogeny of vertebrates and correlation between carnosine content and functional activity of tissues are discussed. Chemical properties of carnosine and its natural derivatives and their ability to bind heavy metals and protons in water solution are documented. Special attention is paid to free radical quenching ability and to anti-glycating action. Biological activity of carnosine and carnosine containing compounds was tested using biological models of several levels of complexity, starting from individual enzymes and acellular mixtures and finishing to living cells and survival animals. Effects of carnosine on the whole animals under ischemic, hypoxic and other extreme conditions are described. In conclusion, the ability of carnosine to protect brain and muscular tissues from oxidative injury during exhausting exercise, extreme loading or neurodegenerative diseases is demonstrated. Based on these properties, carnosine is postulated to be a potent protector of human beings from oxidative stress.
A two-volume comprehensive Bible study series connecting Old and New Testament stories. Useful in multiple settings from Sunday School to weeknight study, My Testament includes creative journaling and holy conversations for children in grades three to five. The series will help children connect themes from both the Old and New Testament. Each volume has 26 sessions and includes: - A learning objective - A New Testament story - An Old Testament story - Creative journaling prompts and wonder questions Each session has an Old Testament story and a New Testament story that are woven together around a main theme. Throughout each session the children are given opportunities to respond to scripture. There are opportunities to creatively write, illustrate, pray, and to ask difficult questions as children enter into a deepening understanding of scripture. My Testament is more than just "journaling." Each child will create a one-of-a-kind journal of what they believe to be true about their relationship with God. The ideal length for each session is 45 minutes. Within this time, opportunities are provided for holy conversations in the form of wonder questions. As the participants create their testaments, responding to scripture, they will be encouraged to discuss their responses with those around them.
