BACKGROUND The lipid-modulatory effects of high intakes of the fish-oil fatty acids eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) are well established and likely to contribute to cardioprotective benefits. OBJECTIVES We aimed to determine the effect of moderate EPA and DHA intakes (<2 g EPA+DHA/d) on the plasma fatty acid profile, lipid and(More)
MicroRNAs regulate a broad range of biological mechanisms. To investigate the relationship between microRNA expression and type 2 diabetes, we compared global microRNA expression in insulin target tissues from three inbred rat strains that differ in diabetes susceptibility. Using microarrays, we measured the expression of 283 microRNAs in adipose, liver and(More)
Here the impact of APOE genotype on CHD risk in UK adults is reported, along with an analysis of APOE genotype × BMI/age/sex interactions. APOE genotype had a significant impact on fasting total:LDL-cholesterol (TC:LDL-C) ratio, triglycerides, % HDL3, and the Framingham 10-year CVD risk score (P<0.05), with an overall trend towards lower and higher risk in(More)
OBJECTIVE Assignment of the correct molecular diagnosis in diabetes is necessary for informed decisions regarding treatment and prognosis. Better clinical markers would facilitate discrimination and prioritization for genetic testing between diabetes subtypes. Serum 1,5 anhydroglucitol (1,5AG) levels were reported to differentiate maturity-onset diabetes of(More)
