Efectos de la administración de betabloqueante en la remodelación ventricular inducida por el tabaquismo en ratas
(Arquivos Brasileiros de Cardiologia, 2009-06-01) [Artigo]
Background: The role of the adrenergic system on ventricular remodeling induced by cigarette smoking is unknown. Objective: To investigate the influence of propranolol on ventricular remodeling induced by exposure to tobacco ...
β-carotene attenuates the paradoxical effect of tobacco smoke on the mortality of rats after experimental myocardial infarction
(Journal of Nutrition, 2005-09-01) [Artigo]
The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of exposure to tobacco smoke (ETS) in rats that were or were not supplemented with dietary β-carotene (BC), on ventricular remodeling and survival after myocardial ...
β-Carotene supplementation results in adverse ventricular remodeling after acute myocardial infarction
(Nutrition, 2006-02-01) [Artigo]
Objective: We studied the effects of β-carotene (BC) on ventricular remodeling after myocardial infarction. Methods: Myocardial infarction was induced in Wistar rats that were then treated with a BC diet (500 mg/kg of diet ...
Enzymatic and oxidative metabolites of lycopene.
(The Journal of nutritional biochemistry, 2004-08-01) [Artigo]
Using the post-mitochondrial fraction of rat intestinal mucosa, we have investigated lycopene metabolism. The incubation media was composed of NAD+, KCI, and DTT with or without added lipoxygenase. The addition of lipoxygenase ...
Tissue distribution of lycopene in ferrets and rats after lycopene supplementation
(Journal of Nutrition, 2000-05-11) [Artigo]
To determine lycopene uptake and tissue distribution in ferrets (Mustela putorius furo) and F344 rats, we supplemented orally 4.6 mg/(kg body wt-d) lycopene in a tomato oleoresin-com oil mixture (experimental groups). After ...
