|Dietary (n-3) fatty acids alter plasma fatty acids and leukotriene B synthesis by stimulated neutrophils from healthy geriatric Beagles
||The study objective was to determine the effect of feeding food enriched in (n-3) fatty acids (FA) on plasma FA profiles and leukotriene B (LTB) synthesis by stimulated peripheral blood neutrophils from dogs. For 36 weeks, two groups of dogs (n = 5) ...
|Dietary (n-3) fatty acids from menhaden fish oil alter plasma fatty acids and leukotriene B synthesis in healthy horses
||The study objective was to determine the effect of feeding corn oil or fish oil to horses on plasma fatty acid profiles and leukotriene B (LTB) synthesis by stimulated peripheral blood neutrophils. Two groups of horses (n = 5) were randomly assigned ...
|The effect of porcine somatotropin supplementation in pigs on the lipid profile of subcutaneous and intermuscular adipose tissue and longissimus muscle
||Abstract: The effect of porcine somatotropin PST) on the lipid profiles of adipose tissue and muscle was investigated. Sixteen crossbred barrows
were injected daily with either 3 mg of PST or a placebo. After slaughter, total lipid and fatty acid co...
|Effects of dietary oils and methyl ethyl ketone peroxide on in vivo lipid peroxidation and antioxidants in rat heart and liver
||Weanling male Sprague-Dawley rats were fed diets for four weeks which differed in their content of n-6 (corn oil; CO) and n-3 fatty acids (fish oil; FO), but were similar in their content of saturated and monounsaturated fatty acids and vitamin E. At...
|Enrichment of LDL with eicosapentaenoic acid and docosahexaenoic acid decreased oxidized LDL-induced apoptosis in U937 cells
||Oxidized LDL (oxLDL) may contribute to the accumulation of apoptotic cells in atherosclerotic plaques. Although it is well established in monophasic chemical systems that the highly unsaturated EPA and DHA will oxidize more readily than FA that conta...
|Glutathione peroxidase activity modulates fatty acid profiles of plasma and breast milk in Chinese women
||Abstract: Since little is known about the effect of selenium on the fatty acid profiles (FAP) of human breast milk, the purpose of this study was to measure the effect of habitual dietary selenium (Se) intake on this profile in plasma and breast milk...
|Influence of long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids on oxidation of LDL
||Enrichment of low density lipoprotein (LDL) with long-chain fatty acids, such as eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA; 20:5 n-3) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA; 22:6 n-3) found in fish oil, is thought to increase its oxidative susceptibility although such an in...
|Interaction of porcine somatotropin administration to growing pigs and frozen storage of carcass on lipids and quality characteristics of roasts
||The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of porcine somatotropin (pST) treatment on the lipid content and fatty acid profile of cooked pork roasts and to determine if differences were exacerbated by extended frozen storage. Pigs were inje...
|Lipids and fatty acids of three species of Northeast Pacific finfish harvested in summer.
||The purpose of this study was to measure the total lipid and cholesterol content and fatty acid profile of chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha), Dover sole (Microstomus pacificus), and sablefish (Anoplopoma fimbria). All three species of fish we...
|Production of modified C-reactive protein in U937-derived macrophages
||Abstract: Plasma C- reactive protein (CRP) has been proposed to be a strong independent predictor for cardiovascular disease. This circulating form of CRP (native CRP or nCRP) is well described. Recently, the existence of a conformationally distinct ...
|Reduced effect on apoptosis of 4-hydroxyhexenal and oxidized LDL enriched with n-3 fatty acids from postmenopausal women
||Background: Oxidized low-density lipoprotein (oxLDL) promotes apoptosis in atherosclerotic plaques in the vascular wall, a process mediated through its oxidized lipids. 4-Hydroxynonenal (HNE) and 4-hydroxyhexenal (HHE), derived from oxidation of n-6 ...
|Removal of fat from cow’s milk decreases the vitamin E contents of the resulting dairy products
||The present study was undertaken to determine whether decreases in fat contents result in lower vitamin E contents. Milk samples of varying fat contents (half and half, whole milk, reduced-fat milk, low-fat milk, and nonfat milk) were obtained from a...
|Selenium supplementation of Chinese women with habitually low selenium intake increases plasma selenium, plasma glutathione peroxidase activity, and milk selenium, but not milk glutathione peroxidase activity
||Abstract: Twenty-one pregnant women living in Xichang County, China, a selenium-deficient area, were divided into two groups and given either a placebo (n = 10) as yeast or selenium-enriched yeast tablets (n = 11) to provide 100 µg selenium per day. ...
|Serum lipids of physically active adults consuming omega-3 fatty acid-enriched eggs or standard eggs
||This study was designed to compare the effects of the consumption of one omega-3 (n-3) polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA)–enriched egg or one conventional egg on serum lipids in physically active adults. A total of 12 adults (mean age 33 ± 7 years, me...
|Supplementation of postmenopausal women with fish oil does not increase ex vivo oxidation of LDL comparted to dietary oils rich in oleate and linoleate
||Abstract: Although replacement of dietary saturated fat with monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids (MUFA and PUFA) has been advocated for the reduction of cardiovascular disease risk, diets high in PUFA could increase low density lipoprotei...
