N-acetylcysteine in high-sucrose diet-induced obesity: Energy expenditure and metabolic shifting for cardiac health
(Pharmacological Research, 2009-01-01) [Artigo]
To study the effects of N-acetylcysteine (NAC, C(5)H(9)-NO(3)S) on high-sucrose diet-induced obesity and its effects on energy metabolism and cardiac oxidative stress, male Wistar 24 rats were divided into four groups (n ...
Physiological changes associated with antioxidant enzymes in response to sugarcane tolerance to water deficit and rehydration
(Sugar Tech, 2014) [Artigo]
Water deficit is the main limiting factor for sugarcane yield worldwide. Under this stress, the crop develops adaptive mechanisms that participate in maintaining the plants’ water status. A better understanding of these ...
Role of vitamin D in the cardiac remodeling induced by tobacco smoke exposure

Ventricular Remodeling Induced by Tissue Vitamin A Deficiency in Rats
(Cellular Physiology and Biochemistry, 2010-01-01) [Resumo]
Background/Aims: Experimental studies suggest that vitamin A plays a role in regulating cardiac structure and function. We tested the hypothesis that cardiac vitamin A deficiency is associated with adverse myocardial ...
Tobacco Smoke Induces Ventricular Remodeling Associated with an Increase in NADPH Oxidase Activity
(Cellular Physiology and Biochemistry, 2011-01-01) [Artigo]
Background: Recent studies have assessed the direct effects of smoking on cardiac remodeling and function. However, the mechanisms of these alterations remain unknown. The aim of this study was to investigate de role of ...
Exercise and oxidative stress: p,otential effects of antioxidant dietary strategies in sports
(Nutrition, 2015-07-01) [Resenha]
Free radicals are produced during aerobic cellular metabolism and have key roles as regulatory mediators in signaling processes. Oxidative stress reflects an imbalance between production of reactive oxygen species and an ...
Diabetes mellitus activates fetal gene program and intensifies cardiac remodeling and oxidative stress in aged spontaneously hypertensive rats
(Cardiovascular Diabetology, 2013-10-17) [Artigo]
Background: The combination of systemic arterial hypertension and diabetes mellitus (DM) induces greater cardiac remodeling than either condition alone. However, this association has been poorly addressed in senescent rats. ...
Bark of passiflora edulis treatment stimulates antioxidant capacity, and reduces dyslipidemia and body fat in db/db mice
(Antioxidants, 2018-09-08) [Artigo]
Obesity is considered an important risk factor for several disorders, such as diabetes mellitus, systemic arterial hypertension, dyslipidemia, and atherosclerosis, which are associated with inflammation and oxidative stress ...
