This study examined the effects of stabilized-rice bran (SRB) rich diet on responses to stress in rats. Standard rodent diet mixed with SRB in the ratio of 2:1 and 1:1 (w/w) was given for 6 weeks to test rats. Results showed that weekly cumulative food intakes smaller in SRB rich diet treated animals were normalized at the end of the treatment. Body weights(More)
Longipetalosides A-C (1-3); three new furostane steroidal saponins together with (25S)-5α-furastan-3β,22,26-triol (4) and gitogenin (5) were isolated from the methanolic extract of the whole plant of Tribulus longipetalus. The structures of these compounds (1-5) were established by using 1D ((1)H, (13)C) and 2D NMR (HMQC, HMBC, COSY, NOESY) spectroscopy,(More)
8-Hydroxy-2-(di-n-propylamino)-tetralin (8-OH-DPAT), a 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT)-1A selective agonist was used to investigate a possible role of somatodendritic serotonin-1A receptors in the precipitation of hyperphagia and decreases of 5-HT metabolism associated with long-term consumption of sugar rich-diet. In the first part of study, dose-related(More)
