Dietary acetic acid reduces serum cholesterol and triacylglycerols in rats fed a cholesterol-rich diet
To investigate the efficacy of the intake of vinegar for prevention of hyperlipidaemia, we examined the effect of dietary acetic acid, the main component of vinegar, on serum lipid values in rats fedExpand
Perilla oil prevents the excessive growth of visceral adipose tissue in rats by down-regulating adipocyte differentiation.
We examined the effect of dietary oils with different fatty acid compositions on the growth of visceral adipose tissue in rats. Rats were fed for 4 mo starting at weaning a basal diet containing (12Expand
Intestinal absorption of luteolin and luteolin 7‐O‐β‐glucoside in rats and humans
In this study, we investigated the intestinal absorption of luteolin and luteolin 7‐O‐β‐glucoside in rats by HPLC. The absorption analysis using rat everted small intestine demonstrated that luteolinExpand
Anthocyanin composition and antioxidant activity of the Crowberry (Empetrum nigrum) and other berries.
The anthocyanin composition and antioxidant activity of the crowberry ( Empetrum nigrum) were studied. High-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) combined with a diode array detector andExpand
Dietary total antioxidant capacity from different assays in relation to serum C-reactive protein among young Japanese women
BackgroundThe association between dietary total antioxidant capacity (TAC) from different assays and serum C-reactive protein (CRP) has not been assessed in non-Western populations. We examined theExpand
Human Serum Albumin as an Antioxidant in the Oxidation of (−)-Epigallocatechin Gallate: Participation of Reversible Covalent Binding for Interaction and Stabilization
Human serum albumin (HSA) contributes to the stabilization of (−)-epigallocatechin gallate (EGCg) in serum. We characterize in the present study the mechanisms for preventing EGCg oxidation by HSA.Expand
Nutrient and food intake in relation to serum leptin concentration among young Japanese women.
OBJECTIVE Little is known about the relation of modifiable dietary factors to circulating leptin concentrations, particularly in young adults and non-Western populations. We examined cross-sectionalExpand
Total n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acid intake is inversely associated with serum C-reactive protein in young Japanese women.
Little is known about the relation of dietary factors to circulating C-reactive protein (CRP) concentrations in young adults and non-Western populations. We cross-sectionally examined associationsExpand
Distribution and excretion of bilberry anthocyanins [corrected] in mice.
The physiology and tissue distribution of bilberry anthocyanins were studied in mice. After oral administration of bilberry extract (100 mg/kg body weight), both unmodified and methylatedExpand
Gene expression profile in the liver of Rana catesbeiana tadpoles exposed to low temperature in the presence of thyroid hormone.
Amphibian metamorphosis, which is controlled by thyroid hormone (TH), is highly temperature-sensitive. Using real-time PCR, we investigated the gene expression profile in the liver of RanaExpand
