This study aims to determine if isoprostanes accurately reflect in vivo lipid peroxidation or whether they are influenced by the lipid content of the diet. Isoprostanes were measured in urine of healthy subjects under different conditions of lipid intake and under conditions of oxidative stress (fasting). We found that isoprostanes were not influenced by(More)
This paper introduces a function dedicated to the estimation of total energy expenditure (TEE) of daily activities based on data from accelerometers integrated into smartphones. The use of mass-market sensors such as accelerometers offers a promising solution for the general public due to the growing smartphone market over the last decade. The TEE(More)
The proliferation of smartphones is creating new opportunities to monitor and interact with human subjects in free-living conditions since smartphones are familiar to large segments of the population and facilitate data collection, transmission and analysis. From accelerometry data collected by smartphones, the present work aims to estimate time spent in(More)

Acetoacetate provision to Ca(2+)-loaded liver mitochondria (less than 40 micrograms-ion Ca2+ x g protein-1), supplied with 2 mM Pi and 2-oxoglutarate as substrate, was found to prevent the mitochondrial deenergization and Ca2+ release induced by either rotenone during aerobic incubations or by O2 deprivation. Under the latter condition, the(More)
The blood pressure of spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) was measured by tail-plethysmography. Feeding SHR a diet supplemented with 0.6 g% L-tyrosine, for 15 weeks after weaning, resulted in a slower increase of blood pressure than in rats fed the control diet (no tyrosine added). The blood pressure stabilized, after about 8 weeks, at values lower by(More)
Physical inactivity and sedentary behaviors are on the rise worldwide and contribute to the current overweight and obesity scourge. The loss of healthy life style benchmarks and the lack of the need to move make it necessary to provide feedback about physical and sedentary activities in order to promote active ways of life. The aim of this study was to(More)
2-Oxoglutarate-supported rat liver mitochondria were loaded with moderate amounts of calcium and submitted to O2 deprivation and reoxygenation. In the presence of acetoacetate, anaerobic energy production maintained Ca2+ retention by mitochondria during the anoxia period unless the Pi concentration of the incubation solution was raised to 4-6 mM.(More)
