Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia in the elderly. The major pathological features of AD are extracellular amyloid plaques, intracellular neurofibrillary tangles and neuronal loss. Amyloid beta (Aβ) peptide, the main component of the amyloid plaques, has been proposed to...
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
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,...
ABCG1 mediates cholesterol efflux onto lipidated apolipoprotein A-I and plays an important role in macrophage reverse cholesterol transport, thereby preventing atherosclerosis. However, how ABCG1 mediates cholesterol efflux is unclear. We found that Cys514 located within the third putative...
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a complex neurodegenerative disorder believed to be triggered by the accumulation of β-amyloid (Aβ)-related peptides derived from the proteolytic processing of amyloid precursor protein (APP). Research over the last two decades has shown that alterations in the levels...
Niemann-Pick Type C (NPC) disease is an autosomal recessive disorder that results in accumulation of unesterified cholesterol in late endosomes/lysosomes (LE/Ls), leading to progressive neurodegeneration and premature death. Microglia are resident immune cells of the central nervous system, which...
Culture and Characterization of Kefir Organisms to Reproduce the Health Benefits of Traditional KefirDownload
Fermented dairy products such as kefir have long been associated with a host of health benefits; however, the role that microbial composition has in these benefits has not been properly examined. This research aimed to examine how kefir impacts host metabolic health, as well as how alterations...
Dietary oxysterols are incorporated in plasma triglyceride rich lipoproteins, increase their susceptibility to oxidation and increase aortic cholesterol concentration of rabbitsDownload
Early fatty streaks and advanced lesions are characterized by the deposition of cholesterol and cholesterol oxidation products (oxysterols). Oxysterols have been shown to be cytotoxic and pro-atherogenic compared to cholesterol and are found in cholesterol-rich processed foods. The consumption of...
Cholesterol is well known for its adverse cardiovascular effects, however it has crucial cellular roles. For instance, cholesterol is a key component of eukaryotic cell membranes and constitutes the principle steroid hormone precursor in most animals. Cellular cholesterol concentrations have to...
