Diel rhythms in serum glucose, lactate, cholesterol, triglycerides and thyroid hormones were studied in red porgy, Pagrus pagrus, held under different photoperiod regimes (constant darkness – DD, 8L:16D,12L:12D), at a constant temperature (17.1–18.7 °C) and fed with commercial pellets, by means of a self-feeder. A clear diurnal rhythm in feeding activity,(More)
OBJECTIVE Oxidized low-density lipoproteins (oxLDL) and antibodies against them (anti-oxLDLs) are thought to play a central role in atherosclerosis. One proposed antiatherosclerotic mechanism for HDL is to prevent oxidation of LDL. This study examined whether plasma HDL-cholesterol (HDL-C) is related to plasma anti-oxLDL levels. METHODS We collected(More)
OBJECTIVE The potential of high-density lipoproteins (HDL) to facilitate cholesterol removal from arterial foam cells is a key function of HDL. We studied whether cholesterol efflux to serum and HDL subfractions is impaired in subjects with early coronary heart disease (CHD) or metabolic syndrome (MetS) in families where a low HDL-cholesterol level (HDL-C)(More)
