G protein: These molecules have been described as "biological traffic lights." Located inside the cell, G proteins are able respond to signals outside the cell -- light, smell, hormones -- and translate (transduce) these signals into action within the cell.
Alfred G. Gilman and Martin Rodbell shared the 1994 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine for "their discovery of G- proteins and the role of these proteins in signal transduction in cells."

  Protein
In general, high biological proteins (complete proteins that contain all of the essential amino acids) come from animal sources, such as meat, fish, poultry, and eggs, (these proteins may also be referred to as complete proteins).
A variety of proteins from plants and animal sources should be consumed, to assure that the diet has an adequate amount of protein, with a balance of amino acids.
Protein intake in excess of these requirements is usually not necessary and does not seem to have any benefits for either strength or endurance training.

  G Protein Receptors   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
The G protein normally lies near the receptor in an inactive, quiet state.
The G protein's two states (ON or OFF) are determined by the guanine nucleotide that it binds (whence the term G protein).
This hydrolysis represents a negative feedback mechanism which ensures that the G protein is only in the active, signal- emitting ON mode for a short period of time.

 NDI Terminology - G protein-coupled receptors   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-14)
G protein-linked (or coupled) receptors mediate the cellular responses to an enormous diversity of signaling molecules, including hormones, neurotransmitters, and local mediators, which are as varied in structure as they are in function: the list includes proteins and small peptides, as well as amino acid and fatty acid derivatives.
Despite the chemical and functional diversity of the signaling molecules that bind to them, all of the G protein-linked receptors whose amino acid sequences are known from DNA sequencing studies have a similar structure and are almost certainly evolutionarily related.
The members of this receptor family have conserved not only their amino acid sequence but also their functional relationship to G proteins by means of which they broadcast into the interior of the cell the message that an extracellular ligand is present.

 Heterotrimeric G proteins
G proteins can be classified on the basis of differences in Ga subunit amino acid sequence, sensitivity to specific bacterial toxins (see below), and type of effector molecule(s) regulated by a particular G protein.
Elucidation of G protein a subunit (Ga) structure and function has come largely from studies involving site-directed and deletional mutatgenesis, studies of naturally occurring mutants (we shall consider one class of Gas mutation, gsp, later in this lecture), construction of chimeric a subunits, biophysical techniques (X-ray crystallography), and use of synthetic peptides.
During G protein activation, the resultant conformational changes in the a subunit are reflected in altered orientations of the switch regions.

 Energy and protein requirements
To apply the recommended safe intakes of protein to diets containing other protein sources consumed by populations throughout the world, it is necessary to consider the essential amino acid patterns provided by their mixed dietary proteins, and their availability in terms of digestibility.
Proteins and diets with an essential amino acid content and pattern that effectively meet the needs of infants and young children will also be adequate for older children and adults, whereas the converse may not be true.
The protein content of infant formulae may vary and, indeed, can be adjusted to compensate for a lower concentration of essential amino acid per unit of nitrogen, relative to that in breast milk.
