Compound Synoymns for Geron Compositions and Methods for Increasing Telomerase Activity, Nov 18, 2010
US Patent No.: 2010/0292197 A1, Nov. 18, 2010.
This was for Enhanced-Bioavailability Telomerase Activators (100), including most remarkably
C3-(L)-isoleucyl-cycloastragenol, and also
C3-(L)-valyl-cycloastragenol and other compounds of note.

Here the "C3" signifies the third carbon atom on the leftmost cycloastragenol hex ring, numbering 1,2,3 counterclockwise from the top. The leftmost cycloastragenol hex ring is just left of the the triangular cyclopropane loop. The compound is attached at C3 via an ester bond. Mono-amino acid combinations of cycloastragenol and an amino acid are sometimes partly stripped down to cycloastragenol in bioavailability studies.

The patent describes combinations of L-valine and cycloastragenol.
We are interested in a few other descriptions it contains of compounds combined with cycloastragenol:
Compound = Synonym
(1) 2-(L)-amino-3-methyl-butyric acid = L-Valine.
(2) 2-(L)-tert-butoxycarbonylamino-3-methyl-butyric acid.
(3) 2-(L), 3-dimethyl-pentanoic acid.
(4) 2-(L)-Amino-3-methyl-pentanoic acid = L-isoleucine.
(5) 2-(L)-Amino-hexanoic acid = L-norleucine.
(6) 2-(L)-Amino-pentanedioic acid = L-glutamic acid = L-glutamate.
(7) 2-(L)-Amino-3-phenyl-propionic acid = L-phenylalanine.
(8) 3-Methyl-2-(L)-methylamino-butyric acid.

Note that the branched-chain amino acids [Links, Images, Papers, Patents, Books] isoleucine, leucine, and valine are thought to turn on muscle synthesis.

Telomeric Proteins Nomenclature
[Telomere Loop Control Proteins, Mammalian Telomere Protein Factors, The Telomere Interactome].

DNA Damage Response Proteins active at the telomere

___Myb-like helix-turn-helix motif [Links/Myb protein, Links/Myb-like helix-turn-helix motif, Images, Papers, Books].
___TRF1 and TRF2 bind to double-stranded DNA at hex telomere repeats using the Myb-like helix-turn-helix motif.

___Mre11/Rad50/Nbs1 complex [Links/the Mre11/Rad50/Nbs1 complex, Images, Papers, Books].

___KU heterodimer (Ku70 and KU80) [Links/KU heterodimer, Images, Papers, Books].

___ATM kinase (ataxia-telangieectasia mutated kinase) [Links/ATM kinase, Images, Papers, Books].

"DNA damage response factors, such as
53BP1 [Links/53BP1, Images, Papers, Books],
γH2AX [Links/γH2AX, Images, Papers, Books],
Mre11 [Links/Mre11, Images, Papers, Books], and
the phosphorylated form of ATM [Links, Images, Papers, Books],
can localize at uncapped telomeres, forming cytological structures referred to as
telomere dysfunction-induced foci (TIF) [Links, Images, Papers, Books]."
