In normal subjects and in patients with cardiovascular disease, plasma triglycerides are positively correlated with plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1 (PAI-1) levels. Moreover, in vitro studies indicate that VLDLs induce PAI-1 synthesis in cultured cells, ie, endothelial and HepG2 cells. However, the signaling pathways involved in the effect of VLDL on(More)
OBJECTIVES To establish reference values for fatty acids (FA) especially for n-3 and n-6 long-chain polyunsaturated FAs (LC PUFA) in whole-blood samples from apparently healthy 3-8-year-old European children. The whole-blood FA composition was analysed and the age- and sex-specific distribution of FA was determined. DESIGN AND SUBJECTS Blood samples for(More)
The aim of this study was to compare blood fatty acid profiles of two population groups: Italian and Tibetan, differing with regard to ethnic, life style and environmental aspects. Additionally the collection of two staple foods provided the opportunity to analyze typical Tibetan dishes. A new, simple, rapid, and substantially non invasive method for fatty(More)
Hypoxia-hypoglycemia has played an important role in inducing both phospholipase A2 activation and the expression of the early gene c-fos, in the neuroblastoma cell line SK-N-BE, after it has been differentiated by retinoic acid. Under hypoxic-hypoglycemic conditions, arachidonic acid release has found to be significant after 30 min, whereas c-fos(More)
BACKGROUND Polyunsaturated n-3 and n-6 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) are precursors of biologically active metabolites that affect blood pressure (BP) regulation. This study investigated the association of n-3 and n-6 PUFA and BP in children and adolescents. METHODS In a subsample of 1267 children aged 2-9 years at baseline of the European IDEFICS(More)
