Although fasting induces hepatic triglyceride (TG) accumulation in both rodents and humans, little is known about the underlying mechanism. Because parasympathetic nervous system activity tends to attenuate the secretion of very-low-density-lipoprotein-triglyceride (VLDL-TG) and increase TG stores in the liver, and serum cholinesterase activity is elevated(More)
Food deprivation (FD) induces hepatic steatosis in both rodents and humans. Although body composition, age, and sex influence hepatic triglyceride (TG) levels after FD, whether feeding patterns affect FD-induced liver TG increases is unknown. We hypothesized that restricted feeding (RF) of 1 meal per day during the active or inactive period (especially the(More)
Some new aspects of damage to cytochrome P-450 peroxidase activities by a toxic peroxide were investigated. Methyl ethyl ketone peroxide (MEKP) damage to cytochrome P-450 and inhibition of cytochrome P-450-mediated peroxidase activities were studied. In vivo, hepatic microsomal NADH- and NADPH-peroxidase activities were induced in rats by phenobarbital and(More)
The effect of dietary vitamin E on in vivo and in vitro damage by methyl ethyl ketone peroxide (MEKP) to cytochrome P-450 and its associated enzymatic activity was studied. In vivo, MEKP damaged microsomal cytochrome P-450 and cytochrome P-450-mediated peroxidases in vitamin E-deficient rat liver. Dietary vitamin E treatment of rats protected the microsomal(More)

Rats were supplied with 25 kinds of food, which were divided into 5 classes of protein and 5 classes of fat content, to examine the effect of dietary protein and fat on the metabolism and retention of DDT in the liver. The results suggested that dietary protein and fat changed DDT and its metabolites concentration in liver. The concentration of DDT(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the protective effect of S-2-(3-aminopropylamino)ethylphosphorothioic acid (WR-2721) on whole-body irradiation-induced inhibition of intestinal transport function. The jejunal transport of fluid and sugars was studied in male Swiss-Webster mice before and 3 days after whole-body irradiation (1000 rads). The rates(More)

In order to examine the effect of dietary protein and fat on DDT metabolism and liver lipid concentration, rats were supplied with calory adjusted diets consisting of various amounts of protein and fat. The results suggested that dietary protein and fat changed the liver lipid concentration. They also showed that dietary protein and fat affected the(More)
Although it is known that a low-protein diet induces hepatic triglyceride (TG) accumulation in both rodents and humans, little is known about the underlying mechanism. In the present study, we modeled hepatic TG accumulation by inducing dietary protein deficiency in mice and aimed to determine whether certain amino acids could prevent low-protein(More)
