Essential Amino Acid Valine
A1: 2 Characteristics of Valine
• Valine is a nonpolar amino acid, with many carbons surrounded by hydrogen. Valine is unable to interact with water molecules, making it HYDROPHOBIC (MSDS,
• Flammability- Valine is combustible at high temperatures. These products are carbon oxides and nitrogen oxides. In case of a small fire, dry chemical powder should be utilized. In case of a large fire, utilize water spray, fog or foam. No water jets (MSDS, 2005).
• Valine is slightly toxic to humans in cases of ingestion and inhalation. Valine also crosses the placental barrier
B. Levels of protein Structures
• DNA makes RNA, RNA Protein
• Proteins are polypeptides- …show more content…
F4. Recommendations for
Countries without BSE Regulations
• Implement feed inspections In the United States, for example, there have been only four known cases of BSE due to feed inspection which prohibits the use of most mammalian protein in feeds for ruminant animals ("Ruminant Feed Inspections").
• Prevention through education and surveillance Educate farmers to look for neurologic signs and symptoms in their cattle, such as those that are non-ambulatory.
• Testing high-risk cattle those that are older, displaying s/s, and those that have died.
• Watch out for cross contamination by disposing infected animal carcass appropriately, transporting and labeling feed properly
(“Your Comprehensive Source for BSE Facts”).
• Label cattle as “inspected and passed,” only if they’ve been tested negative for BSE (“Your Comprehensive Source for BSE
