The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of alpha-linolenic acid (18:3n-3) and linoleic acid (18:2n-6) on the fatty acid composition and the activity and release of mast cell mediators in the canine mastocytoma cell line C2. Cells were cultured in Dulbecco's modified Eagle's medium mixed with 50% Ham's F12 (containing linoleic acid 0.14(More)
Mast cells are important players in the pathogenesis of atopic diseases. These cells release immediate-phase and late-phase mediators of inflammation. Fatty acids are incorporated in cellular membranes and therefore seem to influence mediator production and release. A study was conducted to assess the effects of eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA, 20:5n-3) and(More)
The analysis of neuronal processes distributed across multiple cortical areas aims at the identification of interactions between signals recorded at different sites. Such interactions can be described by measuring the stability of phase angles in the case of oscillatory signals or other forms of signal dependencies for less regular signals. Before, however,(More)
Cutaneous mast cells are considered as key immune effectors in the pathogenesis of canine atopic dermatitis (CAD). These cells release immediate-phase and late-phase mediators of inflammation. Dietary fatty acids are incorporated in cellular membranes and seem to influence mediator production and release. A dietary intervention with n6- and n3-fatty acids(More)
The purpose of our investigations was to evaluate the supposed beneficial effects of gamma-linolenic (GLA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) in a canine mastocytoma cell line (C2) as a model for canine atopic dermatitis. Cells were cultured in a basic medium (DEH) and in DEH supplemented with 14.3 microM GLA (DEH-GLA) or 14.3 microM DHA (DEH-DHA) for 8 days.(More)
Inflammatory mechanisms were recently identified as contributors to delayed neuronal damage after ischemic stroke. However, therapeutic strategies are still lacking, probably related to the outstanding standardization on inflammatory cell recruitment emerging from predominantly artificial stroke models, and the uncertainty on functional properties of(More)
