It has been shown that dietary red palm oil (RPO) supplementation improves reperfusion function. However, no exact protective cellular mechanisms have been established. To determine a potential mechanism for functional improvement, we examined the regulation of both mitogen-activated protein kinases (MAPKs) and PKB/Akt in the presence and absence of dietary RPO supplementation in ischemia/reperfusion-induced injury. Wistar rats were fed a control diet or control diet plus 7 g RPO/kg diet for 6… CONTINUE READING
