This study investigated the hypothesis that the reduced food intake and poor weight gain in zinc deficient rats is due to: increased plasma leptin concentration, increased physical activity and/or increased metabolic rate. Weanling rats were assigned to three groups: controls fed ad libitum (C),...
Intestinal secretion is a normal phenomenon, indispensible to solubilize and dilute nutrients and to maintain fluidity in the intestinal lumen. Enterotoxins and certain drugs may disrupt the proabsorptive status maintained by the small intestine under physiologic conditions. Hormones found in...
The effect of high molecular weight water-soluble chitosan (WSC) on serum starvation-induced apoptosis in human astrocytes (CCF-STTG1 Cells) was investigated. WSC, having an average molecular weight of 300 kDa and a degree of deacetylation over 90%, can be produced using a simple multi-step...
The effects of lovastatin on glutathione peroxidase activity, hydrogen peroxide consumption, ( 3 H)cholesterol uptake and ( 14 C)acetate incorporation were investigated in cultured human endothelial cells. Treatment of endothelial cells with lovastatin in a medium without serum for 4 hr...
The present work was designed to assess the possible benefits of (7% w/w) dietary fish oil in reversing the morphological and metabolic changes present in the adipose tissue of rats fed an SRD for a long time. With this purpose, in the epididymal fat tissue, we investigated the effect of dietary...
The purpose of this study was to specify the main mechanisms at the origin of gallstone formation in very young (5-week old) or young adult (9-week old) LPN hamsters fed a sucrose-rich (normal lipid) lithogenic diet for one and four weeks, respectively. It was also to compare these mechanisms in...
The relationship between metallothionein mRNA levels and the amounts of copper and zinc in liver, kidney and small intestine by feeding dietary cyclodextrin was examined in growing Wistar rats. α-, β- or γ-cyclodextrin was fed at 50 g/kg of diet for a 7-days period (ad libitum). After feeding,...
