Green tea, black tea, and epigallocatechin modify body composition, improve glucose tolerance, and differentially alter metabolic gene expression in rats fed a high-fat diet.
The mechanisms of how tea and epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG) lower body fat are not completely understood. This study investigated long-term administration of green tea (GT), black tea (BT), orExpand

Seasonal variations of total lipid and fatty acid contents in muscle, gonad and digestive glands of farmed Jade Tiger hybrid abalone in Australia
The lipid and fatty acid (FA) contents of muscle, gonad and digestive glands (DG) of Jade Tiger hybrid abalone were studied over the four seasons. Higher contents of total lipid and saturated fattyExpand

Cancer cachexia: impact, mechanisms and emerging treatments
Many forms of cancer present with a complex metabolic profile characterised by loss of lean body mass known as cancer cachexia. The physical impact of cachexia contributes to decreased patientExpand

Disruption of pro-oxidant and antioxidant systems with elevated expression of the ubiquitin proteosome system in the cachectic heart muscle of nude mice
BackgroundCurrent research into the mechanisms of organ atrophy associated with cancer cachexia have centred on the loss of skeletal muscle, as it is one of the most profound physical changes of theExpand

Oxidized fish oil in rat pregnancy causes high newborn mortality and increases maternal insulin resistance.
Fish oil is commonly taken by pregnant women, and supplements sold at retail are often oxidized. Using a rat model, we aimed to assess the effects of supplementation with oxidized fish oil duringExpand
