Wild-type Japanese quail were compared with full-sibs with a yellow plumage color determined by an autosomal dominant mutation (Y), which is lethal when homozygous. These quail have wheat-straw yellow-colored feathers. Early growth was slower in yellow quail that had 2.4% lower BW than wild-type quail (149.3 g vs. 153.0 g) at 28 d of age. The BW, however,(More)
The developing brain may be particularly vulnerable to injury before, at and after birth. Among possible insults, hypoxia suffered as a consequence of perinatal asphyxia (PA) exhibits the highest incidence levels and the cerebellar circuitry appears to be particularly susceptible, as the cellular makeup and the quantity of inputs change quickly during days(More)
OBJECTIVES Oxidative stress and inflammation are important processes in development of atherosclerosis. Paraoxonase 1 (PON1) is a bioscavenger enzyme associated with inflammation and oxidative stress. We evaluate the association of two single nucleotide polymorphisms in PON1 gene, and enzyme activities with lipid profile and glycemia. METHODS This(More)
Recent studies have suggested that formation of advanced glycation end-products (AGEs) in some brain proteins could be associated with Alzheimer's disease.These AGEs can be produced by various sugars (hexose, pentose, glyceraldehyde and oxidative products of vitamin C). In this study, we quantified plasma protein glycation specifically derived from glucose(More)
The general disruption of redox signaling following an ischemia-reperfusion episode has been proposed as a crucial component in neuronal death and consequently brain damage. Thioredoxin (Trx) family proteins control redox reactions and ensure protein regulation via specific, oxidative posttranslational modifications as part of cellular signaling processes.(More)
OBJECTIVE The Framingham Coronary Heart Disease Risk Score is an important clinical tool. The aim of this cross-sectional study was to compare plasma homocysteine levels and polymorphism 677CT MTHFR with this score to determine the utility of these new biomarkers in clinical practice. METHODS Plasma homocysteine levels determined by chemiluminescence and(More)
Perinatal Asphyxia (PA) represents an important cause of severe neurological deficits including delayed mental and motor development, epilepsy, major cognitive deficits and blindness. The interaction between neurons, astrocytes and endothelial cells plays a central role coupling energy supply with changes in neuronal activity. Traditionally, experimental(More)
