Hydrogen peroxide induces contraction and raises [Ca2+]i in canine cerebral arterial smooth muscle: participation of cellular signaling pathways
Abstract. The effects of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) on isolated canine basilar arteries, and single smooth muscle cells isolated from these arteries, were investigated in the present study. Exposure ofExpand

Effect of gingerol on substance P and NK1 receptor expression in a vomiting model of mink.
BACKGROUND Gingerol is the generic term for pungent constituents in ginger, which has been reported to be effective for inhibiting vomiting. We attempted to investigate the antiemetic effect ofExpand

Pollock oil supplementation modulates hyperlipidemia and ameliorates hepatic steatosis in mice fed a high-fat diet
BackgroundHyperlipidemia associated with obesity is closely related to the development of atherosclerosis. Both n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) and long-chain monounsaturated fatty acidsExpand

Diet high in fat and sucrose induces rapid onset of obesity-related metabolic syndrome partly through rapid response of genes involved in lipogenesis, insulin signalling and inflammation in mice
BackgroundFrequent consumption of a diet high in fat and sucrose contributes to lifestyle-related diseases. However, limited information is available regarding the short-term effects of such a dietExpand

Chronic administration of palmitoleic acid reduces insulin resistance and hepatic lipid accumulation in KK-Ay Mice with genetic type 2 diabetes
BackgroundStudies have demonstrated the beneficial effect of palmitoleic acid (C16:1 n-7) on reducing muscle insulin resistance and preventing beta-cell apoptosis. However, the effect of palmitoleicExpand

Beneficial effects of dietary fish-oil-derived monounsaturated fatty acids on metabolic syndrome risk factors and insulin resistance in mice.
The aim of this study was to elucidate the effect of fish-oil-derived monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) containing large amounts of C20:1 and C22:1 isomers on metabolic disorders in mice. MaleExpand

Long-term dietary supplementation with saury oil attenuates metabolic abnormalities in mice fed a high-fat diet: combined beneficial effect of omega-3 fatty acids and long-chain monounsaturated fatty
BackgroundPacific saury is a common dietary component in East Asia. Saury oil contains considerable levels of n-3 unsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) and long-chain monounsaturated fatty acids (LCMUFA)Expand

Interactions between endothelin and endothelium-derived relaxing factor
In the last decade, a number of vasoactive substances produced and released by endothelial cells have been characterized.1 Indeed, the cells are not only a source of endothelin, but also of otherExpand

Dietary supplementation with long-chain monounsaturated fatty acids attenuates obesity-related metabolic dysfunction and increases expression of PPAR gamma in adipose tissue in type 2 diabetic KK-Ay
The objective of present study was to examine the effect of long-chain monounsaturated fatty acids (LC-MUFAs) with chain lengths longer than 18 (i.e., C20:1 and C22:1 isomers combined) onExpand

Dietary Saury Oil Reduces Hyperglycemia and Hyperlipidemia in Diabetic KKAy Mice and in Diet-Induced Obese C57BL/6J Mice by Altering Gene Expression
We investigated the effect of saury oil on the alleviation of metabolic syndrome in mice. Saury oil contains 18% (w/w/) n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFA) and 35% (w/w) monounsaturated fattyExpand
