Our aim was to determine whether meal fatty acids influence insulin and glucose responses to mixed meals and whether these effects can be explained by variations in postprandial NEFA and Apo, which regulate the metabolism of triacylglycerol-rich lipoproteins (Apo C and E). A single-blind crossover study examined the effects of single meals enriched in(More)
Culture of human pancreatic islets is now routinely carried out prior to clinical islet allotransplantation, using conditions that have been developed empirically. One of the major causes of early islet destruction after transplantation is the process termed instant blood-mediated inflammatory reaction (IBMIR). The aim of this study was to develop in vitro(More)
BACKGROUND Although there is considerable interest in the postprandial events involved in the absorption of dietary fats and the subsequent metabolism of diet-derived triacylglycerol-rich lipoproteins, little is known about the effects of meal fatty acids on the composition of these particles. OBJECTIVE We examined the effect of meal fatty acids on the(More)
AIM We examined the effect of meal fatty acids on lipid and apolipoprotein concentrations of very low density lipoprotein (VLDL) and chylomicron/chylomicron remnants in lipid fractions with a Svedberg flotation rate (Sf) 60-400 and Sf 20-60. METHODS AND RESULTS Six healthy middle-aged men received in random order mixed meals enriched with saturated (SFA),(More)
Meal fatty acids have been shown to modulate the size and composition of triacylglycerol (TAG)-rich lipoproteins influencing the magnitude and duration of the postprandial plasma TAG response. As a result there is considerable interest in the origin of these meal fatty-acid induced differences in particle composition. Caco-2 cells were incubated over 4 days(More)
The suitability of the caco-2 cell line as a model for studying the long term impact of dietary fatty acids on intestinal lipid handling and chylomicron production was examined. Chronic supplementation of caco-2 cells with palmitic acid (PA) resulted in a lower triacylglycerol secretion than oleic acid (OA). This was coupled with a detrimental effect of PA,(More)
It is well known that raised plasma triglycerides (TG) are positively linked to the development of coronary heart disease. However, triglycerides circulate in a range of distinct lipoprotein subfractions and the relative atherogenicity of these subfractions is not clear. In this study, three fractions of triglyceride rich lipoprotein (TRL) were isolated(More)
