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
Acetic acid feeding enhances glycogen repletion in liver and skeletal muscle of rats.
To investigate the efficacy of the ingestion of vinegar in aiding recovery from fatigue, we examined the effect of dietary acetic acid, the main component of vinegar, on glycogen repletion in rats.Expand
Antibacterial action of vinegar against food-borne pathogenic bacteria including Escherichia coli O157:H7.
The bacteriostatic and bactericidal actions of vinegar on food-borne pathogenic bacteria including enterohemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC) O157:H7 were examined. The growth of all strains evaluated wasExpand
Acetic acid activates hepatic AMPK and reduces hyperglycemia in diabetic KK-A(y) mice.
Acetic acid (AcOH), which is a short-chain fatty acid, is reported to have some beneficial effects on metabolism. To test the hypothesis that feeding of AcOH exerts beneficial effects on glucoseExpand
Acetic acid suppresses the increase in disaccharidase activity that occurs during culture of caco-2 cells.
To understand how blood glucose level is lowered by oral administration of vinegar, we examined effects of acetic acid on glucose transport and disaccharidase activity in Caco-2 cells. Cells wereExpand
Structural changes of immunoglobulin G oligosaccharides with age in healthy human serum
Age-related changes of IgG N-linked oligosaccharides isolated from normal human serum are reported for 403 individuals (male 227 and female 176), varying in age from 0 to 85 years. The IgG N-linkedExpand
N-glycan patterns of human transferrin produced in Trichoplusia ni insect cells: effects of mammalian galactosyltransferase.
The N-glycans of human serum transferrin produced in Trichopulsia ni cells were analyzed to examine N-linked oligosaccharide processing in insect cells. Metabolic radiolabeling of the intra- andExpand
Enhancing effect of dietary vinegar on the intestinal absorption of calcium in ovariectomized rats.
We studied the effect of dietary vinegar on calcium absorption by using ovariectomized rats fed on a low-calcium diet. The apparent absorption of calcium was higher when the rats were fed on a dietExpand
The efficacy of acetic acid for glycogen repletion in rat skeletal muscle after exercise.
We examined the effect of acetic acid, the main component of vinegar, on glycogen repletion by using swimming-exercised rats. Rats were trained for 7 days by swimming. After an overnight fast, theyExpand
Antihypertensive Effects of Acetic Acid and Vinegar on Spontaneously Hypertensive Rats
To clarify the possibility of a preventive effect of dietary vinegar on blood pressure, long-term administration of vinegar or the acetic acid to SHR was examined. As a result, it was observed thatExpand
