While the genetic control of wheat processing characteristics such as dough rheology is well understood, limited information is available concerning the genetic control of baking parameters, particularly sponge and dough (S&D) baking. In this study, a quantitative trait loci (QTL) analysis was performed using a population of doubled haploid lines derived(More)
Ghrelin plasma concentrations increase during fasting and fall rapidly after nutrient ingestion. We hypothesized that insulin or glucose could regulate ghrelin secretion by a feedback mechanism. In this randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled crossover study, three different study days were carried out in nine healthy volunteers (age 26 +/- 6 years).(More)
A venous blood sample taken at autopsy cannot be considered to represent the antemortem blood concentration of a particular substance. Autolytic processes cause disintegration and increasing permeability of the physiological and anatomical barriers such as vascular walls and lead to changes in substance concentrations. In the present study, the experimental(More)
In investigations of 51 pregnant sows, blood Hb levels above 7.45 mmol/l (mean value of 8.94 +/- 0.88) were recorded from 43 animals (Group A), while levels below that margin were recorded from eight (Group B) (mean value of 6.73 +/- 0.31). Iron levels in blood plasma of Group A were 36.9 +/- 8.07 and were thus higher (p less than 0.01) than those in Group(More)
Chronic renal failure is often associated with malnutrition, and malnourished patients are subject to increased morbidity and mortality. Therefore plasma concentrations of the stomach-derived peptide hormone ghrelin, which has been shown to exert potent GH-releasing and appetite-stimulating effects, were determined and correlated with nutritional(More)
