The imidazoline receptor ligand 2-(2-benzofuranyl)-2-imidazoline is a dopamine-releasing agent in the rat striatum in vivo
TLDR
The I2-imidazoline receptor ligand 2-BFI is also a DA releasing agent in brain, and consequently a DA indirect agonist in vivo. Expand
Increased Na+-H+ exchanger activity in the ileal brush-border membrane of spontaneously hypertensive rats
TLDR
These studies show derangement in ileal BBMV Na+ transport of SHR, which is characterized by increased Na+-H+ exchanger activity. Expand
Lipid composition and fluidity in the jejunal brush-border membrane of spontaneously hypertensive rats. Effects on activities of membrane-bound proteins
TLDR
Structural changes found in SHR were associated to an enhancement in both Na+-dependent D-glucose transport and Na-H+ antiport activity in the jejunal BBMV of SHR. Expand

TLDR
In liver mitochondria, vitamin E shows a protector effect on oxidative damage, and vitamin E concentration can be increased in hepatic but not in brain mitochondira, while in liver and brain mitochondria the level of arachidonic and docosahexaenoic acid was profoundly affected. Expand
Ascorbate-Fe2+ lipid-peroxidation of rat liver microsomes: Effect of vitamin E and cytosolic proteins
TLDR
The results indicate that the ascorbate induced light emission was 76% lower in microsomes obtained from vitamin E treated animals when compared with controls, and the peroxidation affected principally arachidonic acid and its diminution was more evident in the controlmicrosomes than in the microsome from the vitamin Etreated group.

Effects of Two Highly Monounsaturated Oils on Lipid Composition and Enzyme Activities in Rat Jejunum
TLDR
Results suggest that effects of MUFA oils on jejunal BBM lipid composition and hydrolase activities are most likely due to the presence of high content ofoleic acid rather than other components contained in the non-fattyacid of olive oil. Expand

TLDR
Retinoid analysis indicated that 70% ammonium sulphate soluble fraction was enriched in endogenous retinyl esters with regard to cytosol or 70% ammonia sulphate precipitate fraction, and the soluble fraction containing the fatty acid binding protein was able to remove from microsomal membranes, [14C] palmitic acid or [3H] retinyl Esters, whereas the precipitates had no removal capacity. Expand
Selective removal of retinoids and palmitic acid from microsomes by fatty acid binding protein and cellular retinol binding protein.
Studies were conducted to explore the effect of mouse liver cytosolic proteins enriched in fatty acid binding protein or cellular retinol binding protein on the removal of palmitic acid and retinoidsExpand
Fatty acid binding protein removes fatty acids but not phospholipids from microsomes liposomes and sonicated vesicles
TLDR
These studies suggest that liver fatty acid binding protein can interact with different kinds of membranes increasing specifically the desorption of fatty acids. Expand
Increased sodium-dependent D-glucose transport in the jejunal brush-border membrane of spontaneously hypertensive rat
TLDR
It is concluded that altered membrane cholesterol content and consequently altered lipid fluidity could be, at least in part, responsible for the observed increase in Na+-dependent D-glucose transport in SHR. Expand
