The purpose of this study was to identify novel marbling-related genes by comparison of the global gene expression in semitendinosus muscle of 15-month-old Limousin (LIM), Holstein-Friesian (HF) and Hereford (HER) bulls. Muscle of LIM was lean with low intramuscular fat (IMF) content (0.53%) unlike the marbled muscles of HER and HF characterized by higher(More)
Skeletal myoblasts (SMs) transplantations are the focus of intense investigation due to their therapeutic potential for cardiac repair. Heart diseases are the main problem in humans worldwide, resulting very often in death of patients. Consequently, investigators sought methods which could improve myocardial function in patients with cardiac failure. Stem(More)
The leucine metabolite β-hydroxy-β-methylbutyrate (HMB) has been studied by many researchers over the last two decades. In particular, the utility of HMB supplementation in animals has been shown in numerous studies, which have demonstrated enhanced body weight gain and carcass yield in slaughter animals; positive immunostimulatory effect; decreased(More)
Gamma-oryzanol (GO) is an abundant dietary antioxidant that is considered to have beneficial effects in cardiovascular disease, cancer and diabetes. Other potential properties of GO include inhibition of gastric acid secretion and decreased post-exercise muscle fatigue. GO is a unique mixture of triterpene alcohol and sterol ferulates present in rice bran(More)
Adult skeletal muscle myogenesis depends on the activation of satellite cells that have the potential to differentiate into new fibers. Gamma-oryzanol (GO), a commercially available nutriactive phytochemical, has gained global interest on account of its muscle-building and regenerating effects. Here, we investigated GO for its potential influence on(More)
β-Hydroxy-β-methylbutyrate (HMB) is a popular ergogenic aid used by human athletes and as a supplement to sport horses, because of its ability to aid muscle recovery, improve performance and body composition. Recent findings suggest that HMB may stimulate satellite cells and affect expressions of genes regulating skeletal muscle cell growth. Despite the(More)
Background All over the world, including Poland, the sale of dietary supplements is increasing. More and more often, people including children and youths, use dietary supplements on their own initiative and without any medical indications or knowledge in this field. Objectives Analysis of the conditions of using the dietary supplements with vitamins and(More)
