CONTEXT Men and women differ in body fat distribution and adipose tissue metabolism as well as in obesity comorbidities and their response to obesity treatment. OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was a search for sex differences in adipose tissue function. DESIGN AND SETTING This was an exploratory study performed at a university hospital. (More)
We have developed a specific and sensitive radioimmunoassay for the hydra head activator neuropeptide (HHAP). The antibody recognizes the C-terminal portion of HHAP and shows no cross-reactivity with other neuropeptides. The assay allows measurement of HHAP-like material in tissue extracts with a minimum detectable concentration of 22 fmol/ml standard HHAP(More)
BACKGROUND Fish and meat intake may affect gestational weight gain, body composition and serum fatty acids. We aimed to determine whether a longitudinal dietary intervention during pregnancy could increase fish intake, affect serum phospholipid fatty acids, gestational weight gain and body composition changes during pregnancy in women of normal weight(More)
Two web-based dietary assessment tools have been developed for use in large-scale studies: the Riksmaten method (4-d food record) and MiniMeal-Q (food-frequency method). The aim of the present study was to examine the ability of these methods to capture energy intake against objectively measured total energy expenditure (TEE) with the doubly labelled water(More)
Hoxb5 and Hoxa5 transcription factor proteins uniquely impact lung morphogenesis at the developmental time point when extremely preterm infants are born. The effect of O2 exposure (0.4 FiO2) used in preterm infant care on these Hox proteins is unknown. We used ex vivo fetal mouse lung organ cultures to explore the effects of 0.4 FiO2 on lung airway and(More)
A highly sensitive radioimmunoassay for delta sleep-inducing peptide (DSIP) has been developed. A p-hydroxyphenylpropionic acid conjugate of DSIP was used for radioiodination. Using reversed-phase high performance liquid chromatography the labelled DSIP derivative was isolated in a high yield and with a high specific activity. The assay allows measurement(More)
