O bloqueio de eventos dependentes da sinalização do etileno pode afetar de maneira positiva ou negativa a qualidade de frutos tropicais após o armazenamento refrigerado. Dessa forma, os objetivos do presente trabalho foram ...
Influence of treatment with quercetin on lipid parameters and oxidative stress of pregnant diabetic rats
(Canadian Journal of Physiology and Pharmacology, 2013-02-01) [Artigo]
Among the numerous coadjuvant therapies that could influence the incidence and progression of diabetic complications, antioxidants and flavonoids are currently being tested in clinical trials. We investigated the effect ...
Impact of the length of vitamin D deficiency on cardiac remodeling.
(Circulation. Heart failure, 2013-07-01) [Artigo]
This study was aimed to evaluate the influence of vitamin D (VD) deficiency on cardiac metabolism, morphology, and function. Thus, we investigated the relationship of these changes with the length of the nutrient restriction. ...
Spondias mombin supplementation attenuated cardiac remodelling process induced by tobacco smoke
(Journal of Cellular and Molecular Medicine, 2018-08-01) [Artigo]
The objective of this study was to investigate the influence of Spondias mombin (SM) supplementation on the cardiac remodelling process induced by exposure to tobacco smoke (ETS) in rats. Male Wistar rats were divided into ...
