We investigated the protective role of fish oil (FO-source of n-3 FA) enriched diet (in the first protocol) in 20 rats and FO administration intrarectally (in the second protocol) in 40 rats with trinitrobennzene (TNB) colitis. All colonic specimens were pathologically evaluated, myeloperoxidase...
We examined the possible relationship between cytokines, nitric oxide and prostaglandins (PGs) in the estrogenized rat uterus. Results indicate that epidermal growth factor (EGF) enhances the synthesis of prostaglandins in estrogenized rat uteri and induces the augmentation of nitric oxide (NO)...
Prostaglandin (PG) E 2 inhibited both phases of contraction produced by electrical field stimulation of the guinea-pig vas deferens. PGF 2α and PGD 2 were without effect on this preparation. Carbacyclin (a PGI 2 ) analogue inhibited the first phase of contraction at higher concentrations,...
The isoprostanes, 8-iso-PGF 2α and 8-iso-PGE 2 , are powerful vasoconstrictors in vitro and in vivo. Increased formation of 8-iso-PGF 2α was detected in atherosclerotic patients. In this disease endothelial injuries appear, followed by a reduced release of nitric oxide (NO). Our results show...
The following review presents some data on the enzymes of synthesis and catabolism of prostaglandins in bovine placenta. The available literature confirms the anabolic and catabolic ability of bovine placenta to metabolise prostaglandins, but there is little direct information about the pathways...
Increased production of prostaglandins and cytokines by amnion, particularly prostaglandin (PG) E 2 , interleukin (IL)-6 and IL-8, is thought to be an important event in infection-associated preterm labour. We characterized the amnion-derived AV3 cell line to determine its appropriateness as a...
Essential fatty acid deficient animals develop osteoporosis. Eicosapentaenoic acid and gamma-linoleic acid have been reported to have positive effects on bone metabolism in both the growing male rat and the ovariectomized (OVX) female rat. These effects have been further investigated using a...
The differences in the immune responses in mice fed sesame oil diets and those fed sesamin may be attributed to the presence of other lignans in the non-fat portion of the oil. The fatty acid composition (mean ± SD mol. %) of liver membrane phospholipids and the levels of endotoxin-induced...
