BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Increased plasma [homocysteine] is associated with stroke but its direct effects on the brain during a stroke are unknown. Since excitatory amino acids are important in inducing brain damage, we examined the effect of homocysteine on the release of various amino acids in the striatum of spontaneously hypertensive stroke-prone (SHSP)(More)
Dietary flaxseed has cardioprotective effects that may be achieved through its rich content of the omega-3 fatty acid, alpha linolenic acid (ALA). Because ALA can be stored in adipose tissue, it is possible that some of its beneficial actions may be due to effects it has on the adipose tissue. We investigated the effects of dietary flaxseed both with and(More)
Oxidized low-density lipoprotein (OxLDL) plays an important role in initiation and progression of atherosclerosis. Proatherogenic effects of OxLDL have been attributed to bioactive phospholipids generated during LDL oxidation. It is unknown what effect oxidation has on the phosphatidylinositol (PtdIns) molecules in LDL, even though PtdIns is 6% of the total(More)
