The aim of this study was to examine the effect of dietary fish oil on plasma lipoprotein cholesterol levels in rats fed different carbohydrate sources. Male Wistar rats fed a soy bean oil diet or a fish oil diet containing 0.5% cholesterol were studied for 7 weeks. Corn starch or sucrose were used as carbohydrate sources in the experimental diet. Fish oil(More)
To investigate the effect of dietary fish oil on the lipid and glucose metabolism, Wistar rats were fed lard (10% fat by weight) or fish oil (5% lard + 5% fish oil) diet for 7 weeks. Significantly (p < 0.05) lower plasma total cholesterol, low density lipoprotein cholesterol (VLDL-C) levels were observed in rats fed a diet containing fish oil when compared(More)
BACKGROUND A potent angiogenesis inhibitor, U-995, has been purified from the cartilage of the blue shark (Prionace glauca). U-995 is composed of two single peptides with molecular mass of 10 and 14 kDa, respectively. MATERIALS AND METHODS U-995 was designed to study human umbilical vein endothelial cell (HUVEC) migration and proliferation in vitro and(More)
The activation of soluble guanylate cyclase by bradykinin and sodium nitroprusside (SNP), a direct activator of soluble guanylate cyclase, was evaluated in androgen-sensitive LNCaP and androgen-independent PC3 and DU145 prostate cancer cells. Bradykinin and SNP activated soluble guanylate cyclase in LNCaP cells, but not in PC3 and DU145 cells. Western blot(More)
GH is one of the major factors required for the differentiation of 3T3-F442A preadipocyte fibroblasts into adipocytes. An early event following the addition of GH to 3T3-F442A preadipocytes is induction of the expression of c-fos and c-jun. Although c-fos and c-jun expression has been observed in conjunction with growth factor-stimulated differentiation in(More)
