The influence of different kinds of dietary fat (8%) and of endogenous lipid peroxidation with regard to coenzyme Q9 (CoQ9) and coenzyme Q10 (CoQ10) concentrations in mitochondria and microsomes from rat liver has been investigated by means of an HPLC technique. Although the different diet fats used did not produce any effect on microsomes, it was possible(More)
Mongrel dogs were fed, from weaning to 9 months of age, on one of two diets that differed only in the type of fat content (virgin olive oil or sunflower oil) to compare the composition of exocrine pancreatic secretion in the basal period and in response to food. In resting pancreatic flow, electrolytes and the specific activities of amylase, lipase and(More)
Iron status was assessed in a population of 196 schoolchildren and adolescents divided into three age groups: 6-7 years (n = 60), 10-12 years (n = 63) and 13-15 years (n = 73). All subjects were from the Vélez-Málaga area (province of Málaga) in southern Spain. Nutrient intakes and biochemical parameters related with iron status (number of red cells,(More)
The influence of different kinds of dietary fat (8%) and of endogenous lipid peroxidation with regard to cytochrome c oxidase activity and cytochrome a + a3 concentrations in mitochondria from rat liver has been investigated. It was possible to confirm that the dietary fat induced higher phospholipid degradation in mitochondrial membranes; moreover an(More)
Recovery from Mg deficiency was studied in adult Wistar rats fed a semisynthetic diet containing 0.04% Mg in the form of magnesium carbonate. Daily administration of a diet containing recommended levels of calcium carbonate to Mg-deficient rats led to the recovery, within the first seven days of treatment, of normal values in most of the parameters studied:(More)
The effects produced in offspring by corticosterone treatment to breeder quail were investigated. The breeders received corticosterone orally every day during 7 days. The total dose administered was 3.15 mg/quail/7 days. The quail from treated breeders have a decreased rate of body growth during the experimental period. The studied metabolic and nutritives(More)
To compare the effect of monounsaturated vs. polyunsaturated fatty acids on plasma lipids, three months old dogs were studied for a period of six months. The dogs were fed a basal diet supplemented with either 14% olive oil or sunflower oil. Blood samples were taken fortnightly during this period. We have found changes in the various unsaturated fatty acids(More)
The influence of age, physical conditioning and physical exercise on platelet function on human being is still controversial. The aim of our study were to evaluate the effect of physical exercise on platelet activation measured by beta-thromboglobulin (beta-TG) levels and the number of platelets in sedentary and athlete subjects of different ages, and also(More)
In the present work we have studied the effects of feeding either olive or sunflower oil on lipid composition and desaturase activities of duodenal mucosa microsomes. Duodenal microsomes prepared from dogs fed the sunflower oil diet showed higher percentages of saturated, of linoleic and of n - 3 polyunsaturated fatty acids as well as lower levels of oleic,(More)
A total of 37 miniature swine (Sus scrofa) was fed with three diets of 9% fat content, differing only in the quality of the fat source (sunflower oil, olive oil and lard fat). Three groups of animals were fed for a 3 month period, and three other groups were fed for a 12 month period. After the two experimental periods, the influence of the diet on serum(More)
