Assessment of pre-pregnancy dietary intake with a food frequency questionnaire in Alberta womenDownload
Berglund, Casey, Ramage, Stephanie M., Harber, Vicki, McCargar, Linda J., Bell, Rhonda C.
Purpose: Pre-pregnancy is an under-examined and potentially important time to optimize dietary intake to support fetal growth and development as well as maternal health. The purpose of the study was to determine the extent to which dietary intake reported by non-pregnant women is similar to...
Assessment of the mechanisms exerting glucose-lowering effects of dried peas in glucose-intolerant ratsDownload
Jin, Alena, Field, Catherine J., Yee, Homun, Kozicky, Lisa, Morris, Jill, Chan, Catherine B., Bell, Rhonda C., Ha, Christine, Whitlock, Kevin A., Ozga, Jocelyn A.
The present study compared the effects of feeding uncooked pea fractions (embryo v. seed coat) on glucose homeostasis in glucose-intolerant rats and examined potential mechanisms influencing glucose homeostasis. Rats were made glucose intolerant by high-fat feeding, after which diets containing...
Associations among the food environment diet quality and weight status in Cree children in QuébecDownload
Raine, Kim D., Willows, Noreen D., Marshall, Dru, McCargar, Linda J., Arnold, Amber, Downs, Shauna M.
To explore the relationship among children’s diet quality, weight status and food environment in subarctic Canada. In the cross-sectional study, children’s BMI was calculated, diet quality was assessed using three 24 h dietary recalls and children were asked about their home food environment and...
Dong, Xaoli, Wishart, David S., Stothard, Paul, Greiner, Russ, Guo, AnChi, van Domselaar, Gary H., Szafron, Duane, Shrivastava, Savita, Cruz, Joseph A., Lu, Paul
BASys (Bacterial Annotation System) is a web server that supports automated, in-depth annotation of bacterial genomic (chromosomal and plasmid) sequences. It accepts raw DNA sequence data and an optional list of gene identification information and provides extensive textual annotation and...
Wishart, David S., Shrivastava, Savita, Ellison, Michael, Guo, Anchi, Cruz, Joseph, van Domselaar, Gary, O'Neill, Brian, Stothard, Paul
BacMap is an interactive visual database containing fully labeled, zoomable and searchable chromosome maps from more than 170 bacterial (archaebacterial and eubacterial) species. It uses a recently developed visualization tool (CGView) to generate high-resolution circular genome maps from...
Wishart, David S., Cruz, Joseph, Tang, Peter, Stothard, Paul, Zhou, Jianjun, Berjanskii, Mark, Liang, Yongjie, Lu, Paul, Zhou, You, Lin, Gouhui, MacDonell, Cam
Originally released in 2005, BacMap is an electronic, interactive atlas of fully sequenced bacterial genomes. It contains fully labeled, zoomable and searchable chromosome maps for essentially all sequenced prokaryotic (archaebacterial and eubacterial) species. Each map can be zoomed to the level...
Bacterial response to siderophore and quorum-sensing chemical signals in the seawater microbial communityDownload
Background Oceans are iron-deficient and nutrient-poor environments. These conditions impart limitations on our understanding of and our ability to identify microorganisms from the marine environment. However, less of knowledge on the influence of siderophores and N-acyl homoserinelactone as...
Beneficial effects of simulated gastro-intestinal digests of fried egg and its fractions on blood pressure, plasma lipids and oxidative stress in spontaneously hypertensive ratsDownload
Majumder, Kaustav, Jahandideh, Forough, Morton, Jude S., Davidge, Sandra T., Kaufman, Susan, Chakrabarti, Subhadeep, Panahi, Sareh, Wu, Jianping
Background We have previously characterized several antihypertensive peptides in simulated digests of cooked eggs and showed blood pressure lowering property of fried whole egg digest. However, the long-term effects of this hydrolysate and its fractions on blood pressure are not known. Therefore,...
Betulinic acid prevents alcohol-induced liver damage by improving the antioxidant system in miceDownload
Yi, Jine, Xia, Wei, Wu, Jianping, Yuan, Liyun, Wu, Jing, Tu, Di, Fang, Jun, Tan, Zhuliang
Betulinic acid (BA), a pentacyclic lupane-type triterpene, has a wide range of bioactivities. The main objective of this work was to evaluate the hepatoprotective activity of BA and the potential mechanism underlying the ability of this compound to prevent liver damage induced by alcohol in vivo....
Chakrabarti, Subhadeep, Wu, Jianping
Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) such as myocardial infarction and stroke are a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Impairment of the normal vasorelaxant functions of the vascular endothelium, termed endothelial dysfunction; appear to underlie the pathogenesis of CVD. Endothelial...
