Gestational and postnatal malnutrition affects sensitivity of young rats to picrotoxin and quinolinic acid and uptake of GABA by cortical and hippocampal slices.
It is widely known that a complex interaction between excitatory and inhibitory systems is required to support the adequate functioning of the brain and that significant alterations induced by earlyExpand

Convulsions induced by methylmalonic acid are associated with glutamic acid decarboxylase inhibition in rats: A role for GABA in the seizures presented by methylmalonic acidemic patients?
Methylmalonic acid (MMA) is an endogenous convulsing compound that accumulates in methylmalonic acidemia, an inborn error of the metabolism characterized by severe neurological dysfunction, includingExpand

Study of Developmental Changes on Hexoses Metabolism in Rat Cerebral Cortex
We have studied the developmental changes of glucose, mannose, fructose and galactose metabolism in rat cerebral cortex. As the animals aged, glucose, mannose and fructose oxidation to CO2 increased,Expand

Glycine, Serine, and Leucine Metabolism in Different Regions of Rat Central Nervous System
We have investigated the glycine, serine and leucine metabolism in slices of various rat brain regions of 14-day-old or adult rats, using [1-14C]glycine, [2-14C]glycine, L-[3-14C]serine andExpand

Association of CYP7A1 -278A>C polymorphism and the response of plasma triglyceride after dietary intervention in dyslipidemic patients.
We investigated the effect of the -278A>C polymorphism in the CYP7A1 gene on the response of plasma lipids to a reduced-fat diet for 6 to 8 weeks in a group of 82 dyslipidemic males with a mean ageExpand

High Extracellular K+ Levels Stimulate Acetate Oxidation in Brain Slices from Well and Malnourished Rats
We investigated the effect of high (12, 20, and 50 mM) extracellular K+ concentrations ([K+]0) on [U-14C] acetate oxidation to CO2 in cerebral cortex slices of control and perinatal malnourishedExpand
