Very little really surprises me on the sports supplement market nowadays as I’ve honestly tried it all before and the fact that I rarely use any one product twice should tell you all you need to know. I admit I was initially drawn to Testo Extreme Anabolic by the unique approach it takes to muscular development and I thought it would be fun and interesting as I have not seen anything like this product before. I’m now on my third course using the Testo and Decacore Creatine combo and have consistantly seen improvements in my workouts and physique with each course! My advice? When you finally find something that works for you, stick with it!

The enzymes of the arginine dihydrolase pathway were demonstrated in Tritrichomonas foetus and their subcellular localization determined for both T. foetus and Trichomonas vaginalis. Ornithine carbamyltransferase (anabolic and catabolic activities), ornithine decarboxylase and carbamate kinase activity were localized predominately (56-80%) in the non sedimentable fraction of both species. A large proportion (35-40%) of the arginine deiminase was, however, recovered in the large granular fraction, and this distribution was unchanged by increasing the ionic strength of the buffer. Upon density gradient centrifugation the particles containing arginine deiminase activity had an isopycnic density of g/ml in percoll, and separated from hydrogenosomes ( g/ml) and lysosomes ( g/ml). Arginine deiminase was also the only enzyme of the dihydrolase pathway which demonstrated latency upon treatment of the g/ml fraction with non-ionic detergents. The results demonstrate the presence of the arginine dihydrolase pathway in T. foetus and indicate that at least a portion of the arginine deiminase in trichomonads is membrane associated.
