The purpose of this study was to examine the use of hypothermia to protect skeletal muscle from the effects of 4 hr of tourniquet ischemia. Muscle recovery was investigated at 6 weeks. Four hours of tourniquet ischemia was induced in two groups (n = 8 per group) of male, Wistar rats (344 +/- 15 g). In the ischemia-only group (IO), the ischemic leg was(More)
Elastin is a protein of the extracellular matrix that forms the major component of elastic fibers from the arterial wall thickness and plays an important role in elastic properties of large blood vessels. To study the relationships between the Ser422Gly polymorphism in exon 16 of the gene-encoding elastin and the distensibility of 2 different arteries, the(More)
OBJECTIVES The polymorphism of the apolipoprotein E gene (epsilon2, epsilon3, epsilon4) affects plasma cholesterol but the relationship with artery wall thickness has indicated contradictory results. This study investigated the relationship between apolipoprotein E polymorphism and vascular phenotypes of the carotid and radial arteries, two arterial sites(More)
The GNB3 C825T gene polymorphism has recently been identified and associated with hypertension, obesity and left ventricular hypertrophy. The aim of the study was to determine the relationship between the C825T polymorphism of the gene encoding for the G protein beta3 subunit (GNB3 C825T) and vascular hypertrophy. We studied a cohort of 306 subjects (age 49(More)
This study was conducted at Truong Dang Cove of Tri An Reservoir from June 2002 to March 2003 to determine biomass production of various trophic levels in the fish culture cove, to construct a trophic box model for the selected cove, and to recommend ecologically sound stocking and management strategies for cove aquaculture. From June to July 2002, ground(More)
