The effects of dietary polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) on ex vivo bone prostaglandin E(2) (PGE(2)) production and bone formation rate were evaluated in rats. Weanling male Sprague-Dawley rats were fed AIN-93G diet containing 70 g/kg of added fat for 42 d. The dietary lipid treatments were formulated with safflower oil and menhaden oil to provide the(More)
A study was designed to examine the effects of dietary conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) on serum concentrations of insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) and IGF binding proteins (IGFBP) and the relationship of these factors to bone metabolism. Weanling male rats were fed AIN-93G diet containing 70 g/kg of added fat for 42 days. Treatments included 0 g/kg or 10(More)
This study examined the effects of dietary (n-6) and (n-3) polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) and acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) on bone ash content, morphometry, fatty acid composition, ex vivo PGE2 biosynthesis, tissue IGF-I concentration, and serum alkaline phosphatase (ALPase) activity in chicks. Newly hatched chicks were fed a semipurified diet containing(More)
This study examined the effects of dietary fat on the fatty acid composition of liver and bone, and on the concentration of insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) in liver and bone, as well as the relationship of these factors to bone metabolism. Day-old male broiler chicks were given a semipurified diet containing one of four lipid sources: soybean oil(More)
The present study was conducted to determine whether provision of preformed dietary docosapentaenoic acid (DPAn-6) can replace DHA for normal long bone growth as assessed by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry for mineral content (BMC). A newly modified artificial rearing method was employed to generate n-3 fatty acid-deficient rats. Except the dam-reared (DR;(More)
We report on an in vivo model of human myeloma producing bone disease in irradiated severe combined immunodeficiency disease mice using the human myeloma cell line JJN-3 and its subline JJN-3 T1. The cell lines are not Epstein-Barr virus transformed and produce large amounts of hepatocyte growth factor (HGF). Mice had radiological signs of osteolysis and(More)
Bone is a unique tissue providing support, movement, and mineral balance for the body. Bone growth is achieved in the young by a process called modeling, and maintained during adulthood by a process termed remodeling. Three types of cells are responsible for the formation of cartilage and bone; the chondrocyte, osteoblast, and osteoclast. These cells are(More)
The effects of dietary vitamin E (VIT E) and lipids on tissue lipid peroxidation and fatty acid composition, epiphyseal growth plate cartilage development, and trabecular bone formation were evaluated in chicks. A 2×2 factorial design was followed using two levels (30 and 90 IU/kg of diet) of dl-α-tocopheryl acetate and two different dietary lipids. The(More)
Chronic Kidney Disease-Mineral Bone Disorder (CKD-MBD) is a newly defined syndrome encompassing patients with chronic kidney disease that have a triad of biochemical alterations in calcium, phosphorus and parathyroid hormone, vascular calcification, and bone abnormalities. Here we describe a novel Cy/+ rat model of slowly progressive kidney disease(More)
