Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) are essential structural components of the central nervous system. Their role in controlling learning and memory has been well documented. A nutrigenomic approach with high-density microarrays was used to reveal brain gene-expression changes in response to different PUFA-enriched diets in rats. In aged rats fed throughout(More)
We examined the effect of ω-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) deficiency during development on sodium appetite. Being raised on an ω-3 PUFA deficient diet increased the intake of 0.5M NaCl following furosemide-induced sodium depletion by 40%. This occurred regardless of the diet they were maintained on later in life, and the increased consumption(More)
IN HER ARTICLE " GUPPY SEX AND GLUTTONY guided by orange glow " (News of the Week, 8 March, p. 1816), Virginia Morell reviews recent evidence published by Rodd et al. suggesting that the sexual preference of female guppies (Poecilia reticulata) for males with orange spots is explained by the notion that orange resembles food (1). Of course, it is difficult(More)
In vitro studies have demonstrated that angiotensin II (ANG II) induces adipocyte hyperplasia and hypertrophy. The aim of the present study was to determine the effect of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibition on body weight, adiposity and blood pressure in Sprague-Dawley rats. From birth half of the animals (n=15) were given water to drink, while the(More)
Keywords: Time series Numerical model results GIS Web map service Web service Data atlas a b s t r a c t There has been an increasing awareness that large-scale datasets of earth-system model results would be produced and accumulated rapidly within the next few decades with extensive usage of numerical models. The successful exploration of these data for(More)
AIM Fish-oil omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFAs) are mostly esterified to the sn-2 position of triglycerides, while in seal-oil triglycerides, these are mostly esterified to the sn-1 and -3 positions. We investigated whether fish-oil and seal-oil feeding has a different effect on the regulation of lipid metabolism and oxidative stress in BioF1B(More)
To estimate the relative significance of exogenous vs. endogenous fatty acids in increasing hepatic triacylglycerol secretion following an inhibition of fatty acid oxidation by emeriamine, livers from 2-d-fasting rats were perfused with or without an inhibitor in the presence of a geometrical isomer of linoleate (linolelaidic acid,(More)
