Characterization of a novel model of intestinal lipoprotein overproduction and the impact of N-3 PUFA supplementationDownload
Overproduction of intestinal chylomicrons (CM) has been proposed to contribute to fasting and post-prandial (PP) dyslipidemia and may accelerate the development of cardiovascular disease (CVD) during obesity, insulin resistance (IR) and diabetes. However, the impact of morphological changes in...
Phosphatidylcholine (PC), the most abundant phospholipid in eukaryotic cells, is an important component of cellular membranes and lipoprotein particles. The enzyme CTP: phosphocholine cytidylyltransferase (CT) regulates de novo PC synthesis in response to changes in membrane lipid composition in...
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)...
Helminth position within the intestine of naturally infected pike (Esox lucius) relative to host stomach contentsDownload
The positions of 3 cestode species, Triaenophorucs rassusF orel, Triaenophoruns odulosus( Pallas), and Proteocephalus pinguis LaRue, and a nematode, Raphidascaris acus (Bloch), within the intestine of naturally infected pike (Esox lucius L.) were evaluated with respect to the presence or absence...
Insulin and testosterone are associated with elevated intestinal secretion of lipids and lipoproteins in a rodent model of the metabolic and polycystic ovary syndromeDownload
The metabolic syndrome is highly associated with the incidence of Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS). The metabolic aberrations of insulin resistance and hyperandrogenemia have been proposed to contribute to the development of dyslipidemia and increased Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) risk in PCOS....
Introduction: Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) such as obesity, type 2 diabetes (T2D) and cardiovascular disease (CVD) are increasing at an alarming rate globally. A common feature in these conditions is increased adiposity leading to insulin resistance (IR). Dyslipidemia is a major contributing...
The intestine and the gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT) are essential components of whole body immune defense, protecting the body from foreign antigens and pathogens, while allowing tolerance to commensal bacteria and dietary antigens. The requirement for protein to support the immune system...
The role of ezetimibe and simvastatin in modulating intestinal cholesterol transport, chylomicron profile and chylomicron-remnant uptake by the arterial wall in a rodent model of the metabolic syndromeDownload
Intestinally derived chylomicron remnants (CM-r) may contribute to atherogenic dyslipidemia during the Metabolic Syndrome (Mets). However, the combined effects of ezetimibe (EZ) and simvastatin (SV) on post-prandial (PP) dyslipidemia during MetS remains unclear, nor is it known whether the...
