Nutrigenomics represents a shift of nutrition research from epidemiology and physiology to molecular biology and genetics. Nutrigenomics seeks to understand nutrition influences on homeostasis, the mechanism of genetic predispositions for diseases, to identify the genes influencing risk of diet related diseases. This review presents some in vitro models(More)
The effect of simultaneous pretreatment with vitamins C and E on the toxicity and mutagenicity of K2Cr2O7 in rats and guinea pigs was evaluated. Dietary pretreatment of Cr(VI)-intoxicated rats with ascorbic acid or alpha-tocopherol normalized vitamin C levels in lungs but not in kidneys. The synergistic preventive effect of both vitamins was confirmed in(More)
The rate of oxidative metabolism after a single i.p. dose of ethanol-1-(14)C was studied in male guinea pigs, previously treated with two different levels of vitamin C (traces or 0.5 g/100 g) in their diet for 5 weeks. While the body weight did not differ between these two groups after 5 weeks of the dietary regimen, the vitamin C concentration in the liver(More)

A group of male rats were intoxicated within 24 h by three successive i.p. doses of ethyl alcohol (7.5 g per 1 kg of the body weight). In parallel, a control group of rats were dosed i.p. with a physiological saline. At time intervals of 0 h, 4 h, 24 h, and 48 h after the intoxication, the content of thiobarbiturate-reactive substances (TBARS) as product of(More)
velop in meteorite material as long as the appropriate conditions such as elevated temperatures and liquid water are present. This must repeatedly have been the case in the history of the meteorites. An early aqueous phase appears to have taken place contemporaneously with parent body formation ca. 4600 Ma ago or shortly after it [6]. Meteorites and(More)
The cholesterol content of the high-density plasma lipoproteins (d over 1.1 g.cm-3) of guinea-pigs with experimental vitamin C deficiency, followed by realimentation with suboptimal (1 mg/animal per day) or optimal (10 mg/animal per day) doses of L-ascorbic acid for 6-9 weeks in the continued presence of an elevated alimentary cholesterol intake (0.5 g/kg(More)
