Apricot kernel oil is a rich source of MUFA and PUFA, including mainly oleic (about 70%) and linoleic acids, respectively. In addition, apricot kernel oil could be considered as a good source of bioactive compounds such as tocopherols and phytosterols consisting mainly of the γ-isomer and βsitosterol, respectively. Given to its high content of oleic acid, apricot kernel oil is considered as a healthy supplement in diet. In the present study, we investigated the effects of apricot kernel oil… Expand

Influence of dietary oils on liver and blood lipid peroxidation.
The results demonstrate that corn oil feeding increases lipid peroxidation significantly and thus may raise the susceptibility of tissues to free radical oxidative damage. Expand
Fatty acid, triacylglycerol, phytosterol, and tocopherol variations in kernel oil of Malatya apricots from Turkey.
Principal component analysis (PCA) was applied to the data from lipid components of apricot kernel oil in order to explore the distribution of the Apricot variety according to their kernel's lipid components and was found to be a powerful tool for classification. Expand
Influence of dietary fat saturation on lipid peroxidation of serum and low density lipoprotein in rats
Abstract The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of different P/S (polyunsaturated/saturated) ratios on lipid peroxidation of plasma, liver and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) inExpand
Effect of fish oil and coconut oil diet on the LDL receptor activity of rat liver plasma membranes.
The data seem to indicate that during fish oil diet the higher binding affinity of LDL to liver plasma membranes might be partly responsible of the hypocholesterolemic action of marine oil rich diet as compared to saturated diet. Expand
Antioxidant action of flavonoids from Mangifera indica and Emblica officinalis in hypercholesterolemic rats
The oral administration of flavonoids from Mangifera indica and Emblica officinalis at a dose of 10 mg kg−1 body weight day−1 showed significant antioxidant action in cholesterol-fed experimentalExpand
Variations in dietary fat and cholesterol intakes modify antioxidant status of SHR and WKY rats.
Diet-induced changes in tissue antioxidant status were tissue specific and did not affect the development of hypertension in SHR, and animal strain x fat source interaction obtained for liver GSH-Px activity indicated that SHR responded differently to polyunsaturated fatty acid feeding than their WKY counterparts.

Reduction in plasma cholesterol and increase in biliary cholesterol by a diet rich in n-3 fatty acids in the rat.
It is suggested that n-3 fatty acids reduce the plasma cholesterol level in rats by increasing the transfer of cholesterol into bile, and the fatty acid compositions of plasma, hepatic, and biliary lipids showed relative enrichment with n- 3 fatty acids, reflecting the composition of the diet.
