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...
First-Row Transition Metal-Mediated Reactions: Catalytic Ester Hydrogenolysis, Aerobic Alkane Oxidation, and [5+2] Ring-Expansion ReactionsDownload
The research described in this dissertation focuses on first-row transition metal catalyzed and mediated organic reactions. The first part of the thesis involves the exploration of the catalytic reactivity of phosphoranimide-supported tetrametallic nickel and cobalt clusters, while the second...
Isoferulic acid prevents methylglyoxal-induced protein glycation and DNA damage by free radical scavenging activityDownload
Background Isoferulic acid (IFA), a naturally occurring cinnamic acid derivative, is a main active ingredient of the rhizoma of Cimicifuga dahurica. It has been shown various pharmacological activities. The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of IFA against MG-induced protein glycation...
Protective/Conductive Coatings for Ferritic Stainless Steel Interconnects Used in Solid Oxide Fuel CellsDownload
Ferritic stainless steels are the most commonly used materials for solid oxide fuel cell interconnect application. Although these alloys may meet the criteria for interconnect application for short periods of service, their application is limited for long-term use (i.e., 40,000 h) due to poor...
