Abdominal contents from two large Early Cretaceous compsognathids (Dinosauria: Theropoda) demonstrate feeding on confuciusornithids and dromaeosauridsDownload
Two skeletons of the large compsognathid Sinocalliopteryx gigas include intact abdominal contents. Both specimens come from the Jianshangou Beds of the lower Yixian Formation (Neocomian), Liaoning, China. The holotype of S. gigas preserves a partial dromaeosaurid leg in the abdominal cavity, here...
Altered microRNA expression in bovine subcutaneous and visceral adipose tissues from cattle under different dietDownload
Background MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are a class of molecular regulators found to participate in numerous biological processes, including adipogenesis in mammals. This study aimed to evaluate the differences of miRNA expression between bovine subcutaneous (backfat) and visceral fat depots (perirenal...
An investigation of dietary and physical activity risk factors for type 2 diabetes among Alberta youthDownload
Due to the increase in type 2 diabetes in the child and adolescent population, examining the lifestyle habits of youth has become important. The purpose of this research was to examine the presence of dietary and physical activity risk factors for type 2 diabetes among youth in Alberta and to...
An overview of sodium, calcium, and vitamin D dietary-related behaviors of Chinese Canadians in EdmontonDownload
The sodium, calcium, and vitamin D intakes and their respective food sources were assessed in a convenience sample of 81 Canadian-born and foreign-born Chinese adults from the University of Alberta in Edmonton. The mean intakes of sodium, calcium, and vitamin D were 3,623 ± 1,406 mg/day, 794 ±...
Pre-pregnancy dietary intake and physical activity may be important in fetal development. The objective of this study was to examine the use of a food frequency questionnaire (FFQ) and the Baecke physical activity questionnaire (Baecke) in a retrospective assessment of pre-pregnancy dietary...
Chemically defined diet alters the protective properties of fructo-oligosaccharides and isomalto-oligosaccharides in HLA-B27 transgenic ratsDownload
Non-digestible oligosaccharides (NDO) were shown to reduce inflammation in experimental colitis, but it remains unclear whether microbiota changes mediate their colitis-modulating effects. This study assessed intestinal microbiota and intestinal inflammation after feeding chemically defined...
Dental Disease in Roman Period Individuals from the Sodo and Terontola, in the Territory of Cortona, ItalyDownload
This study presents the results of a pathological examination of the dental remains of nine individuals from the territory of Cortona (Tuscany), dated to the Late Republican period (first century BC to first century AD). Eight of the individuals were excavated from the area of the Sodo tumuli,...
Dietary lipids containing gangliosides reduce Giardia muris infection in vivo and survival of Giardia lamblia trophozoites in vitroDownload
We examined whether a ganglioside supplemented diet affected the course of Giardia muris infection in mice and survival of Giardia lamblia trophozoites in vitro. Female CD-1 mice were fed 1 of 5 experimental diets : standard lab chow as a control diet; semi-synthetic diets containing 20% (w/w)...
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...
